Beautiful and comfortable home, and a great location for exploring North Georgia
I cannot speak highly enough of this lovely riverfront home. My family and I spent 4 nights here as a family reunion and to revisit beautiful North Georgia. The home is located in a quiet gated community near Helen (about 10 minute drive), and is also within an hour drive to visit many of the best North Georgia scenic areas including Tallulah Gorge, Brasstown Bald, Anna Ruby Falls, and Amicalola Falls. A pleasant surprise to us was North Georgia's developing wine industry, with at least 4 winery tasting rooms located between the riverfront home and Helen. Don't miss stopping by Sautee Nacoochee Vineyards and Yonah Mountain Winery tasting rooms; it makes for a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon after hiking or sightseeing earlier in the day.
The riverfront home itself is beautiful inside and out. The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing your meals, and the house is supplied with everything you need for a comfortable stay including extra towels and blankets, local guide books, board games, and many other amenities. They also have tubes and outdoor towels for river play time. My family particularly enjoyed the large outdoor screened porch, and we ate our meals and spent much of our socializing time there (when we weren't relaxing in the hot tub or demonstrating remarkably bad aim at the downstairs pool table). Climate control as well as lots of screened windows and overhead fans allowed for great ventilation and a very comfortable sleeping environment. Do note that the house is multi-story (3 floors) and the paved drive to the riverfront deck is quite steep; while fabulous for most, this home is probably not the best choice for someone who is a fall risk.
Cynthia is very prompt and professional to deal with. In planning our stay, all of our questions were answered thoroughly and promptly via email. Having a local contact (Daniel) who welcomed us in person and oriented us to both the house and surrounding area was "icing on the cake". I can't recommend Cynthia and her riverfront home highly enough.
