About Mike Stricklin

The Smokerise Cabin is owned by Mike and Lucy Stricklin. We purchased the property as a second home until we could possibly retire there. Some friends suggested we rent in the meantime so we tried it. We had never rented before so we didn't know what to expect. We have been so pleased by the number of quality renters who have appreciated our home the way we do. Come enjoy the North Georgia Mountains in a relaxed setting... you will not be disappointed.

Mike Stricklin purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Mike Stricklin chose Sautee

My mother is from Germany. The town of Helen is very unique due to its Bavarian theme. It allows those traveling in the southeast to experience a small taste of Bavaria. Many people travel to this area because of Helen and everything this region has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

Our place is for those who want to relax and feel like you are staying at someone's home not a rental. We offer a 3 level 3BR & 3BA home on 3.5 wooded fenced acres. It is private, relaxing, comfortable, inviting, easy and convenient to Helen without being in Helen. We are just 3 miles from Helen. This is our home - it is decorated with a warm feel and has it all from slippers to everything a gourmet chef would need. All you have to bring is yourself, clothes and food.

Well-appointed, clean, comfortable cabin; great fenced property for dogs to run

  • 4 of 5
Smokerise Cabin had all of the essentials AND comforts, including paper towels, soap, laundry detergent, etc. That is not always the case and was much appreciated. Clean and comfortable- Robes and slippers in the closets, book light in the nightstand drawer, cooking oil and basic spices/cooking needs stocked in the kitchen, and other such thoughtful details taken care of. we had a wonderful, relaxing time and would definitely visit again and recommend it to friends.
We chose this cabin and especially enjoyed it because we could allow the dogs to run free and play and not worry about them getting away- that was probably the biggest bonus for me. However, there are areas of the fence that are in rather bad disrepair, with barbed wire hanging that could be dangerous. It's a lot of fence line to go around the entire property, so probably is hard to keep up with, and it didnt end up being an issue as we just kept the dogs away from those areas, but I wanted to mention it just as an FYI.. that was literally my only complaint though, every detail of this cabin was wonderful- All of the appliances / hot tub / fireplace / TVs were in good working order. Love the comfy rocking chairs and swing. One suggestion would be to leave directions on how to change hot tub temp – we were able to increase the temp when we got there but could not figure out how to lower it when we were leaving.
The cabin was easily accessible, we had no problem with the lockbox or instructions getting in. It is a wooded setting, so there is a view of Mt Yonah from the hottub and back yard/porch during the winter, probably not as much during the summer.

Fourth of July Fun

  • 5 of 5
Even though it rained like crazy the whole time we were at the cabin, we had a great time and enjoyed the time together at Smokerise Cabin. We loved the front and back porches and were able to take advantage of them even with the rain. The swings and rocking chairs allowed for everyone to be outside at the same time. The kitchen was very nice, with a gas stove and plenty of pots and pans to cook many dishes at the same time. We slept well on the beds and the rain on the roof was an additional lullabye. Our dogs loved running the fenced acreage and we enjoyed watching them explore, even in the rain. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great time.

Owner's Response: Jeanne, thank you for the wonderful review. Sorry about the rain, but the porch and metal roof ease the pain of the rain! Thank you for staying!

Smokerise was a treat!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, Mark, our two teenage daughters, and I stayed at Smokerise from June 22nd-June 29th! What a fantastic experience! I cannot say enough good things about this VRBO, and we have stayed at many of them.
The location is fantastic--it is only about a ten minute drive to Helen, which is a cute Bavarian town with lots to see and do. There are also lakes and plenty of places to hike nearby, as well as other outdoor activities--we went zip-lining, whitewater rafting, tubing on the river through Helen, hiking, and paddle boating while we were there. The neat thing about the location, though, is once you are back at Smokerise, you are secluded in your own little woods, and have complete privacy!
The lady who cleans the cabin does a fantastic job--the cabin was neater than almost any VRBO at which we have stayed!
The cabin has great amenities--the hot tub was a joy after our busy days, and the girls loved the outdoor pit--we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. The beds were super comfy, and we all slept in every day that we could!
We would highly recommend this cabin for either an action-packed family vacation, or a romantic "get away from it all" vacation! You will not be disappointed!!

Relaxing week at this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
This lovely home is very secluded and romantic. We had a very relaxing time just hanging out with our three dogs. They had the time of their lives! This is a very safe property for pets and children. The fence could use a few repairs but it sure was nice having such a large area for active dogs to play. Everything was in excellent condition in the house and on the large, peaceful deck. Hot tub and fire pit were amazing and the owner Mike was fantastic to work with. Thanks so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful home for a week.

Wonderful Relaxing Visit

  • 5 of 5
My wife, our three dogs, and I just returned from our annual visit to this cabin. Words really can not express how relaxing the cabin and area are. Not to mention how beautiful it is! Once you drive into the yard and close the gate it is like you are leaving behind all of the stress and worries of your day to day life. Every year we add a few more days to our stay. This year we stayed for a week. Mike, the owner, is great to work with and although he does not live nearby he has some wonderful housekeepers. The cabin is always very clean and welcoming. Our dogs are able to be off leash and run the 3.5 acres free. They absolutely love it. My wife and I enjoy the peace and quiet, sitting by the fireplace, walking with our dogs around the property, sitting outside with a fire in the fire ring, and of course the hot tub - It is wonderful! We will be making another trip later this year or the beginning of next year. We hope to bring our grandchildren. We think they would have such a wonderful time!The best description I can come up for this cabin and property is a piece of heaven on earth!!

Dogs and people loved it!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin delivers exactly what it promises. Easy reservation process, helpful owner,peaceful, peaceful get-away close to nice dining and activities. We saw lots of birds, a herd of wild turkeys and even a bear! (Bear was not on the cabin property, so no worries.). Dogs loved the freedom to run & chase the squirrels. We enjoyed the artisan shops in Sautee, Hofer's and The Old Bavarian Inn in Helen for authentic German cuisine. But mostly we liked hanging around the cabin. :)
