About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This three bedroom, two bath chalet is located on over five and a half acres of property with 650 feet of frontage on the Upper Chattahoochee River. Located about 10 miles from Helen in the Sautee Nacoochee Valley, this retreat is well appointed with decks at the house and river, tiki bar at the river, a hot tub, grills and tubes.

Just 90 miles from Downtown Atlanta, this tranquil setting is seemingly light years away. If you can't take a hint, there is a DSL internet connection, satellite TV, DVD and CD players, BBQ Grill, hot tub, and tubes. The bedrooms are on three different levels, with an airy and open living area and separate den. The house can easily accommodate three couples or a large family.

There are good restaurants in the nearby Saute Nachoochee Valley, Helen and Clarksville. Regular and Gourmet Grocery stores are about 10 miles away and a convenience store is within minutes. We like to cook, and the kitchen will allow you to prepare your favorite meals. You can then dine in at a comfortable table that will seat 10,or on an outside deck amidst the trees.

There is a treehouse-like feeling from the surrounding woods, and the river is accessible by an easily travelled path. Formerly owned by local folk artists, the house offers an eclectic mix of folk art and artifacts you will enjoy perusing and contemplating.

You'll love this spot on the river and the house! Come see what others rave about!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I cannot praise highly enough this cabin. Will easily accomodate 3 couples. Each floor has a separate bedroom. What can I say about the kitchen? Awesome is all that comes to mind. It has a modern kitchen that most would be proud to have in their own home. All you need to cook is the food. It's fully stccked with all the spices and condiments plus cooking gear. It's not far from helen but you could easily enjoy a couples retreat without leaving the property!Recommended for: Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway,

My Response



Alex, I'm so glad to hear you loved the house as much as we do. It's a unique place and very special to us. We love to cook and once we get to the house, we never want to leave. I'm happy you found you didn't have to either! We'd love to have you back. Let me know when you come our way again! Meredith

Wonderful place to vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house had all the comforts of home. The location was beautiful and close enough to attractions but yet far enough away to make it secluded. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at almost perfect time of year, maybe two more weeks and it would have been perfect. There are so many beautiful wild flowers, and flowering pots all around the house and the blueberries were not quite ripe. The land is gorgeous, surrounded with hard woods. The area down by the river is huge and very peaceful. The walk down is easy, but the walk back can be brutal if not in good shape! I can't explain how special the house is. The layout is wide open and the art all around inside and out has you constantly finding something new. There are three living areas, one on each floor. The kitchen is fully stocked. Two very nice decks to enjoy the fresh air,listen to the birds. Multiple seating areas out front as well.

The owner is very gracious and responsive. This was a girl's weekend plus two six year olds, so the beauty of it all was particularly appreciated.

I know I am gushing here, but the house and grounds are so eclectic. Pictures really can't give it justice.

The home was very clean.

I will be suggesting this home to girlfriends for get aways.

Owner's Response: Linda, I'm so happy you loved the house as much as we do! It is a unique spot and we're lucky to be able to share it with so many wonderful people. I hope you will come back soon! The blueberries are usually ripe by late July/August. Next year we'll have a bounty crop and it's tubing weather! Meredith

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 stayed here during Oktoberfest, and it was wonderful. The assortment of art and personal pieces (photos of the family) made everyone feel like they were in a Home vs a rental house. The owners provide everything from cookware , flatware, laundry items, linens, a grill, and spices anything that you would need it was there. The rooms were great, the living areas were comfortable for us to just sit around ( watch scary movies - which were playing all wknd long) talk and just hang out. The hot tube was wonderful !! The distance to the water was a bonus too for the guys to fish a little. We also enjoyed the company of Bob Marley ! :) He was part of our crew by the end of the wknd. Overall, I would recommend this house to all my friends, and we hope to stay again in the future.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this eclectic cabin by the river! The location was great and the accommodations were like staying at a friend's home. Next time we will plan a day without sightseeing so that we can enjoy the cabin and our time by the river to its full extent.
