"1 year anniversary trip really enjoyed this home. Loved being nestled in the woods with the mountain view from the hot tub. I will say the home is larger than expected in person. The dark pictures do not do the home justice. Inside is all beautiful wood, with sky light windows in the living room ceiling. This home actually has 2 floors, the bottom floor having a full bathroom, nice size laundry room with a folding table, hallway, a full den/game room and a very small bedroom with doors that go to a covered area outside with a table. There is also a space heater in every area of the downstairs which is naturally cooler. There was plenty of room for the 2 of us. We did not use the fire place or dvd player, but great features at this house. All the appliances worked great, we did not see any bugs as another reviewer stated. Saw a small buck, 4 doe in the backyard, and locally we saw plenty of wild turkey all week, 2 large bucks, a ground hog, and 2 black bear right across the street from Farmette drive (the road snowdrift place is directly across from) The location is great here! You are elevated up on a mountain. Very close to Helen and sightseeing. Nearby are plenty of stores including grocery, drugstore & shopping. Hot tub worked great including bubbles, and lights during our stay which ranged from 32-65 degrees. Just make sure to turn the temp way up to start the heating, you should have no problem using the hot tub the same night. The corner view of the tip of the mountain is the only mountain view from the backyard, but we enjoyed the tree views just as much as the peak of the mountain. Our recommendations for nearby attractions that are a MUST: Brasstown Bald, Bell Mountain, Huddle House in Cleveland (best service in our lifetime) Paul’s Steakhouse for dinner, Hofer’s bakery and restaurant in downtown Helen, and our most favorite attraction the ½ day gem mining next to the creek at “Gold n Gem Mining” in Cleveland. I’m having an emerald ring made from one of our findings! Lot’s of other waterfalls and trails in the area, don’t have room to name them all. Don’t forget Babyland in Cleveland to get your cabbage patch & to see a beautiful mountain view the building overlooks. We loved being surrounded by woods inside and out. Thank you for sharing your home with us."
