Guestbook comments from the owner
By: Mary Li Creasy

This property is fabulous! The location is very private yet close to all the N. Ga. mountain attractions. We loved seeing the deer and wild turkeys on the property, tubing on the river, the hot tub, panning for gold, fising and hiking Brass Town Bald, Unicoi and Anna Ruby Falls. The cottage itself couldn''t be lovelier and the owner thought of everything. A real home away from home retreat. We are looking forward to returning in the fall!

As an outdoors enthusiast, I love to hike, moutain bike and such. Living in Florida, without mountains is not as exciting as with them. After many years of staying at "adequate" cabins in Georgia and North Carolina, I FINALLY found one that is close to home that felt like home, but yet gave that "vacation-get-a-way from it all" feeling. Speaking with Nancy on the phone made me feel like I made the right choice, and after driving up through the woods and making that turn - seeing the house upon the hill was jaw dropping, tongue swaying, eyes bugging GORGEOUS! Upon entering the house, seeing the immaculant wood flooring, clean like new kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms (upstairs and downstairs), the awesome fireplace, and the spectacular view of the river from the screened in porch with the Hot Tub - I was in heaven. With Helen only a few easy to drive miles away, we had everything near us to do. My girlfriend Theresa and I even easily drove to Charlotte (about 2 1/2 hours) for a football game. The cabin in within an easy drive of MANY MANY hiking trails (it was winter so no white water rafting)but shopping in Helen and Dehalanega. Nancy was an awesome host - thanks for the SpiderMan video - she was there when we needed her, and out of sight when we didn''t. My friends and I HIGHLY reccommend Nanna''s Cabin. Definately Gold Star Service.

Nana's Cottage was awesome! It has such a "homey" atmosphere. We loved just sitting in the rocking chairs and relaxing on the screened in porch, listening to the sounds of nature. Nothing could be more relaxing or romantic than the hot tub with the view of the river. Nancy thought of everthing you could possibly need, towels, hair dryer, candles, etc. We loved the feather beds. I could go on and on. Everything was so clean, it was perfect. I highly recommend staying at Nana's.

Truly Charming and Cozy

  • 5 of 5
We fell in love with Nana's Cottage. It is so charmingly decorated and felt like home from the time we walked in. We had four adults and one child and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a weenie roast over the fire pit our first evening and played horse shoes. Then retired to the hot tub and listened to the babbling river waters from the screened in porch. So peaceful and enchanting. We visited Unicoe State park the next day to enjoy the waterfall, picnic creek side, then swim and paddle boat on the lake in the park. We had a wonderful dinner in Helen and enjoyed watching the tubers in the river. Next day, we enjoyed tubing in our back yard of the cottage. The water was refreshingly cold and fun. My grandson enjoyed playing in the sandy bank under our watchful eyes. We visited Helen again later that day for wine tasting and dinner by the river. Played miniature golf and won a free game....no lack of fun for everyone. We found that Nana's cottage provided us everything we needed and had hoped for. The landscaping of the property was perfect and not hard on the old bad knees of this Nana. We wished we were more experienced with kayaking because they were available and the river was moving fast so I know they would have been fun, we just ran out of time to do everything....but this leaves us more to enjoy the next time we rebook with Nancy in Nana's cottage by the river. Nancy was delightful to work with. 5 star rating in our book... Hope to return soon!

Absolutely the most charming rental ever!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at night, but even in the dark the location, the ambiance, the cottage, everything instantly created the most charming get-away I have ever been to ... in spite of our three tween-agers and our dog :-)
The house is in the most perfect spot in the beautiful GA Mountains and has limitless outdoor features which were wonderful for the kids' entertainment. The cottage itself is perfectly central to all the fun in Helen, as well the extraordinarily delightful (and seriously under-rated) town of Cleveland, GA, both of which provide more than enough activities for weeks of entertainment for everyone's taste. My only regret is that the weather didn't cooperate enough for us to enjoy the river in the backyard, but that is our fault for vacationing on spring break. To remedy that we will definitely come back this summer!!! Highly, highly recommend this rental to anyone for a weekend or a month, with kids or without kids, honeymooners or retirees, the ambiance is perfect for all! We had a blast and loved every minute!

Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5
Best vacation home we have ever stayed in. I spent months planning our summer vacation to GA. I had certain expectations in the place I wanted my family and I to stay. Nana's Cottage hit every one of them. The location was perfect. Far enough away to feel secluded but close enough to get back in the middle of things to do. The home was cozy and warm. It was relaxing. Nana had everything organized and she was there for us with any questions. I would recommend to anyone looking to stay in a clean, well kept home with amenities included that you don't have to leave the house if you don't want. Thank you for such wonderful memories. Sorry am late on the review!!!

SUPERB CHRISTMAS WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at Nana's Cottage we were absolutely stunned at how perfect everything was, from the setting, to the cottage itself . The pictures do not do it justice! Everything was spotlessly clean.
There were 6 of us ranging in age from 16 to mid 50's. We could easily have stayed another week as we did not get everything done that we wanted to. Even being winter, we did some fishing in the river below, sat by the firepit roasting marshmallows, went on walks, spent many hours in the hot tub, went on amazing wine tasting tours and frequented a lovely little coffee shop in the village. They make the BEST hot chocolate! We travel a lot including overseas and this is one of our favourite holidays ever!! So much to do....so little time. We will definitely be back, God willing.
Thank you Nancy and Rob! We could go on and on about how fantastic everything was!
