Debra and Jeff Carpenter purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Debra and Jeff Carpenter chose Helen

During our first visit to Helen GA we fell in love with the surrounding area. Before we left we had purchased this lovely cabin and enjoyed many years of vacations in it. When we decided to relocate from Ft. Myers, Florida, we purchased a larger home nearby. Since that time we have continued to explore and enjoy the northeast Georgia area and never tire of it's beauty and nature. We now offer that opportunity to others to enjoy our cabin and make memories in this enchanting area.

What makes this cabin unique

Sip coffee on the rocking chair front porch watching the finch feed her babies from a nearby birdhouse. Soak in the hot tub under the stars after a relaxing day of hiking or nearby adventures. ( Hot tub is drained, cleaned and treated before each and every guest arrival:) Light the wood burning stone fireplace for a romantic end to a fun day with a bottle of local wine. Watch deer pass by from the kitchen window. Roast weenies and marshmallows in the fire pit. Enjoy the sounds of nature from the screened back porch while playing a game of checkers. Breath in the fresh mountain air and let the positive energy of this wonderful area fill your being. Enjoy the feel of being in a 2 story tree-house.

Quiet, Quaint Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Great little cabin for a quiet weekend in Helen. Nicely appointed, roomy, though the hot tub did not function very well. Only small issue was the satellite cable system and the wifi. Its 2018 and it would be great to have access to more than just a handful of TV channels and to have a wireless router than wasn't over 15 years old.

Owner's Response: Dear Joe, Thank you for notifying us of the issues that you experienced. We encourage guests to contact us if they have any problems so that we can correct them immediately. There are 900 channels and Starz, HBO and Cinemax at this cabin. In less than five minutes the problem was corrected by contacting DirecTV and having them resend a signal. Internet is affected in this area by storms but can also be easily reset by unplugging the modem for a moment and the replugging. We have a service call into the Hot Tub service to check on the jets. Kind regards, Debra

The cabin was found to be just as described. Beautiful setting, quiet area, and a relaxing home.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was delightful - just what our 4 generation group needed. Plenty of room for the youngest to play inside while the adults relaxed. We enjoyed the screened in porch area each morning with coffee and nature on all sides. The short distance drive to local attractions, shoppes and neighboring towns was wonderful. We love the area and the beautiful surroundings. We will definitely look here again for our vacation destination.

Great trip! We enjoyed ourselves!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is located in a private location but not to far from town! We were within twenty minutes from many great hikes which we spent our week doing! The cabin was clean when we arrived with music playing which was a great touch. We had our son with us so the high chair and baby gate were much appreciated and such a great touch. We enjoyed the screened in patio for dinners and just relaxing. It was also dog friendly, which was so great! Our only con was the cob webs that looked like they hadn’t been swept up in a long time! I understand it’s in the woods so it wasn’t a huge deal but it would be great just to sweep those away from the high ceilings and deck once in a while! Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend this property!

The Legend Of Sautee & Nacoochee

The Legend of Sautee and Nacoochee is well documented. The first White settlers, coming up the Unicoi Trail, now known as Georgia Highway 17, heard the story as they stopped to rest in the shade of the giant white oak, still standing adjacent the Old Sautee Store. (Hwy 17 & 255).

One among them, George Williams, a young lad at the time, retold this story in his memoirs. The Cherokees considered themselves to be a superior race, as indeed they were. Handsome, tall and intelligent, they even had an alphabet, the first in America. They were not nomads, they built log houses and tilled the soil. They had but one grievous fault. This superiority was allowed to show. Naturally, this did not endear them to the neighboring tribes. One of these, the Chickasaws, was constantly at war with the Cherokee.

However, there were moments of relative calm. During one such truce, a band of Chickasaws was allowed to cross over Cherokee land, provided they stay on the Unicoi Trail and rested only at designated spots. One such spot was where two trails crossed at the junction of two lovely valleys, the same place where - a century later, a young George Williams stopped. As the Chickasaw band rested, in the shade of the giant oak, around them gathered curious Cherokees, trying to get a closer look at the dispised Chickasaws. Soon they were trading insults and obscenities. The Cherokees were hoping to bait the Chicasaws into making an overt act. But, the Chickasaws were too cagey to be trapped by such obvious maneuvers.

One of the Chickasaws stands aloof from this bickering. It is Sautee: young, handsome and a chief's son. He dreams of the day when he will be chief. And has the authority to negotiate permanent peace with the Cherokees. Some of this greatness must have shown, for Nacoochee, the Cherokee chief's 16-year-old daughter, is so taken by this handsome stranger that she stares unashamedly. Then their eyes meet. The magic alchemy of love does the rest. Not one spoken word - and yet a tryst was made.

That night Nacoochee steals away from her father's log house to meet with Sautee, under the giant white oak, now known as the Sautee Oak. By this time, they are helplessly and hopelessly in love. The rest of Sautee's party, counsels against this madness. No good could come of this flagrant violation of their truce. If Wahoo, the girl's father, learned of this meeting, all would be doomed. But, then, as now, teenagers feel they must defy the establishment. "Run, if you must," Sautee tells his followers, "but, I remain here with Nacoochee. Together we will make Wahoo understand. This must be the first step to a lasting peace between our two nations.

The couple secretly spent time together in a secret cave within Yonah Mountain. Despite their private affair, both felt compelled to bring their love to the Chief for approval, never dreaming that they would not receive his blessing.

To the young couples surprise, the Chief was blinded by anger when his daughter presented Sautee as the man she loved, not only ordering him away, but ordering him to be thrown from the highest cliffs of the Yonah Mountains. Nacoochee was forced to look on to her lover's demise. Overcome with grief, and unable to see a life worth living without Sautee, she too threw herself from the high cliffs. They were united at the cliff's basin, joined forever in death. Wahoo, the Chief, found the fallen couple in an endearing embrace, realizing too late that his daughter's love was in fact her fate. Wahoo becomes overcome with remorse, something he will live with the rest of his life , choosing to leave the couple united in death at the mountain's basin.

Today, that burial mound still stands at the Junction of Georgia Highway 75 and Highway 17. The valleys were renamed, one for each of the fallen lovers. While you're up visiting at the cabins in Helen, GA stop and to pay respects.
