About Mrs. Lober

My late husband, a retired dentist , and I, a retired high school English teacher, built our dream vacation get-away in Skylake, a beautiful recreational community. My daughter was attending U. of Ga. and my son was at Mercer U. in Macon , Ga. Our cabin was the perfect place then for their college breaks. It also served as the family retreat for Thanksgiving and other festive holidays. Now that the children are grown , they still enjoy the cabin. Because I live in Central Florida, I miss the mountains and changing seasons. The North Georgia mountains have become my second home!I hope you enjoy it as much as we do:-)

Mrs. Lober purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Mrs. Lober chose Helen

The property has 24 hour round the clock security. Since we live there part time, this affords us peace of mind. Also, the property is minutes away from the Sautee Nachochee Community Center which has classes, an art gallery, concerts, and a pottery museum. Nearby Unicoi State Park has Blue grass concerts , a buffet restaurant, dulcimer festivals,bird watching, ranger programs, etc. Smithgall Woods has well marked hiking trails. and programs for adults and children. Mt. Yonah is great for climbing. Colleges in the area offer concerts and plays.Oktoberfest in the Feste Hall ( 7 minutes from the cabin)is always fun and a highlight. There is so much to do and see in the area.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with the area because of the mountain views, the cool summer nights, the mild winters, and the proximity to Atlanta. The Skylake community is composed of people who are very concerned about nature, conservation and the environment. The community rules are aimed at keeping the area beautiful.

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We shopped online at VRBO and chose this property as meeting our needs for space and location. The pictures did not do justice - this home is beautiful with a well-appointed kitchen that I would love to have at my home! Everthing there to work with - we had three generations of family cooking daily and it was just wonderful! Location to nearby Helen and other towns we wanted to visit was a big plus, plus the ability to hike without taking cars.

The owner was very helpful providing information that we requested. The Sodensee Restaurant was highly recommended by the "locals" and we enjoyed our meal there.

I would highly recommend this property for young, middleaged, and older folks. An access ramp would easily accommodate a wheelchair. There were games available, books available, as well as TV and internet access. My large family had a wonderful Christmas week here and we're talking about making it a yearly tradition.

Owner's Response: Dear Maureen, Thank you soooo... much for you kind and beautiful review. I am so pleased that the cabin was bustling with happiness and family:-)....Can you believe this weather! I had to have the water turned off in the cabin or the pipes might freeze! Keep warm, and many, many more happy anniversaries:) Best regards, Skippy

Very Nice Cabin with "at home" feel

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time during our stay at this very nice cabin. The photos don't do it justice. We were very impressed. It's extremely private. Has a huge wrap around deck. Plenty of room for our family of 12. All the amenities of home. Would definitely stay here again.

Great Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

this is such a great house to get away from it all and be in the quiet of mother nature. The house was perfect for 2 families with kids and had everything you need (TV, coffee maker, full kitchen). The best part in my opinion is the wrap around porch!
