(NOTE: COZY NOOK IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR PROPERTIES IN THE HELEN AREA, AND IS OFTEN BOOKED WEEKS IN ADVANCE. PLEASE SEE OUR RECOMMENDATIOIN ON MY ADJACENT CABIN NEAR THE END OF THIS SECTION FOR THE MOST QUALITY ALTERNATIVE IF YOU CAN'T GET INTO COZY NOOK ON YOUR DESIRED DATES.) Now Cozy Nook: Recently upgraded in several areas, the cabin is located three miles from downtown Helen, but feels like this one-bedroom rustic cabin is totally isolated. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway with little to no possibility of unwanted visitors, traffic, or noise. Property is located in deep rhododendron forest at the very end of a private road, the highest point on the entire property, and is snuggled up to many thousands of acres of the Chattahoochee National Forest for maximum privacy. Spa area of deck is covered, and the deck is totally secure from prying eyes. A well-accommodated full bath serves the bedroom, which has a new queen mattress and a new television. A new wide-screen television (with recently upgraded cable service to include dozens more channels)and DVD player have been added to the comfortable fireplace room, and there is a generous selection of DVDs to watch. Enjoy finest relaxation and privacy, so romantic that you may not want to even leave the cabin. But remember that numerous activities abound in Unicoi State Park (fishing in numerous well-stocked area trout streams, beach, lake, boating, stunning Ana Ruby Falls farther up in national forest) and nearby Bavarian-themed Alpine Helen (great restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions, river tubing, golfing, canoeing and kayaking, horseback riding, etc). For the more adventurous, numerous walking trails are in the area, including the nearby segment of the famous Appalachian Trail, which crosses Highway 75/17 at Unicoi Gap a few miles from the cabin.
The lodging features one comfortable bedroom with queen bed (brand new mattress) and a full bath and tub/shower with convenient and safe step-in (garden tub) feature. In summer, spring, and fall, enjoy total seclusion both in the cabin and on the private deck out back, complete with roofed hot tub, and enjoy the view of the dense forest and the nearby mountains, complete with an awesome display of fall colors peaking out in October. In May the rhododendrons are in full bloom, the temperature is usually perfect, and the ambiance is almost palpable. In cooler winter months, when the leaves are off the trees, one can see another cabin far across a deep valley, but they can't easily see you because Cozy Nook has a much higher elevation, so privacy isn't significantly compromised even then. During the cold periods relax in front of the cozy wood burning fireplace in the great room, enjoy an occasional snowfall, and just relax with your loved one. The hot tub is a real pleasure, and if you get to enjoy it while the snow is falling it's truly a rare treat. Go out to eat at one of the fine restaurants in Helen, cook up your own fare in the well-stocked kitchen, or grill a steak on the deck's new Weber charcoal grill, which has all the needed Weber utensils. Enjoy cable television in HD and big screen in the great room, where a generous selection of quality DVDs is on hand. Bring your computer and smart phone, and you can access the internet throughout the facility by using the new WiFi just installed (access instructions provided just before your arrival). It's a little bit of heaven near a place called Helen, and you won't find a more satisfying place to call home for a short time.
Here is the recommendation I mentioned: This charming cabin is often unavailable on weekends, and is at this writing booked completely on weekends for the next six weeks. IF YOU CAN'T GET INTO COZY NOOK, PLEASE CONSIDER OUR NEXT-DOOR (BUT OUT OF SIGHT) CABIN, as an alternative (VRBO 750370, named "Seclusion"). This is a larger cabin with two bedrooms, the same hot tub and private deck (actually even more private than Cozy Nook, if that's possible), plus a brand new king bed, mattress, and box springs in the master bedroom upstairs. As in Cozy Nook, all things worn have been replaced, and it rents for about the same, with the standard rate being $115 per night for the whole two-bedroom cabin, except during major holidays and the Oktoberfest/Leaf Season period. There is more room in this cabin and we are certain it is the best alternative in the Helen area to Cozy Nook, with absolute privacy and top-notch furnishings and amenities.
