The Perfect Place For The Family Gathering!

  • 5 of 5
Our family needed a place that we could feel comfortable and at home in while we were in North Georgia for the wedding festivities of our granddaughter. This was the Perfect Place! We had privacy, quiet, comfort, convenience and beauty at this lovely place in the mountains. There were many things to do and wonderful places to eat in addition to having the conveniences of the cabin with everything furnished but the food. Stores are close by.

One particularly late afternoon we had come back to the cabin to pick up a couple of forgotten things and in one of the neighbor's yard we saw a buck and four doe just standing and eating minding their own business and then when we had retrieved what we had left behind we were driving down the driveway and stopped at the end to make our turn; at that moment the same group of deer were in the strip of tree growth on the other side of the cabin yard and they ran across the road single file and we watched them one by one enter another section of the growth between the two houses across the road and disappear. That was truly my highlight in being in such a beautiful mountain setting.

We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the early morning and early evening listening to the sounds of the countryside and watching the hummingbirds zipping in and out feeding at the hummingbird feeder. A couple of them were quite territorial. It was amazing how much fun one could have watching them zip around and head for the tree and perch for a while.

This place was even more than we had expected. Everything was so clean and convenient for us. Helen was only three miles away and while there we found two great restaurants; the Bavarian House and the Troll House~~great food at both places. We went to Anna Ruby Falls, Dahlonega, Gainesville, Cleveland, Toccoa Falls and Cornelia; all in short distance from the cabin.

Really this place was all we had hoped for and more. I recommend it highly. Bernadine, the caretaker, was a jewel. She came over a short time after our arrival and gave us all the information on the property and showed us 'the ropes' so to speak. She made you feel so welcomed and that was a great time meeting and talking with her.

I can hardly wait to return for another short vacation.

Great House in a Beautiful Area!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a wonderful week in northern Georgia in this beautiful home. Seems anything you could possibly need was there. The kitchen was very well stocked and plenty of inside entertainment was available if you were so inclined. We have been to Helen many times, have seen all the local and distant sights, and find the area very appealing. We were more into relaxing this time around and found this home was just perfect for that - the sofa and loveseat were very comfy, as was the king-sized bed. Nice and quiet there, didn't even hear one dog bark. Wish we had found this house in past years as it is very convenient to everything. We will be back!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5
My family always looks for a relaxing place to stay for vacation, but with four kids in the family there must be plenty of activities around. This spot was a great find because it had that nice mountain feel, yet was surrounded by many different activities. With Helen being only a short while a way, we enjoyed the food, mini golf, and river tubing. We also saw many water falls including Anna Ruby Falls, Toccoa Falls, and Dukes Creek Falls. Other fun more adventurous activities we completed were mountain biking and whitewater kayaking. Also, the cabin was in reasonable distance to take a day to white water raft on the Chattanooga River. After doing all of these things, we needed a place to relax, cook, and spend family time watching movies or playing games: this cabin was it!! It was the perfect fit for our week!!

Outstanding home

  • 5 of 5
Our family wanted to experience “tubing”in Helen...I looked on the internet and what a treasure we found when we discovered this wonderful house! Our daughter flew from Indiana to join her family in the beautiful Georgia mountains! We all had our visions of what vacation would be like...and we arrived to find a warm inviting house to share our joys of the days to be together! Grace, Hannah, & Jack were delighted with the wonderful filled closets of toys, games, books...and even cowboy boots! We had a wonderful breakfast at Hofer's Bakery & Cafe with apple pancakes & omelets. We went to see the beautiful Anna Ruby Falls...which was well worth the climb! The girls played with a butterfly that actually landed on their hand! We then went Pink Tubing for 2 ½ hours and had a fantastic time!
Hannah(3) was tied to daddy's tube and finally said about half way through...”I.m done tubing and fell asleep... haha...and slept along time on the river. Papaw babysat for Baby Jack and everyone had a wonderful time! We are sorry we must leave...but we will be back!!
Thanks, for providing this outstanding place for families like ours!!

Activity and Interests

Car: necessary

The North Georgia Mountains boast some of the greatest activities the south has to offer including: Unicoi State Park, fishing, hiking, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding trails, golf at (Innsbrook course), antiquing and of course meandering through Helen and it's quaint shops and restaurants is a fun as well. For the little girls in the family, there is The Cabbage Patch Kids Hospital and the area is steeped in rich Native American history including the legend of Sautee and Nacoochee. Of course, the Appalachian Trail begins practically in our backyard. Our best suggestion (although we have many brochures) is to stop by the Visitor's Center in Helen where personal staff can direct you all over the North Georgia area. The Sautee Nacoochee Arts and Cultural center offers musuems with local artists works, jewelry, pottery, a Native American Historic center and the 'Evening Star Series' held monthly with Folk and Acoustic artists from across the country performing in an intimate and wonderful theater. But after a day of sightseeing, coming home to sit out on the porch or deck and watch the sunset over the mountains can't be beat and is by far, our favorite thing to do. Pick a Movie & have a drink, take a hottub and get a great night's sleep the mountain air provides and you can start all over again the next day!
