Cleveland vacation rentals

Cabbage Patch Cleveland puts Georgia on my mind

Probably best known as the birthplace of the Cabbage Patch doll, Cleveland is a charming town 90 miles north of Atlanta in the North Georgia mountains. Book a Cleveland vacation rental and visit the the 19th-century courthouse-turned-museum, pan for gold in the Gold 'n' Gem Grubbin' Mine, or get back to nature in the nearby Chattahoochee National Forest. It's also just a 15-minute drive from the quaint Bavarian-themed town of Helen. There are also some incredible wineries on Cleveland's doorstep, and the Unicoi Wine Trail will give you a true taste of Georgia.

Georgia's window to waterfalls and wine trails

Thanks to the town's close proximity to the beautiful North Georgia mountains, a Cleveland vacation rental makes a great base for embracing the state's natural beauty. Join Cleveland's active set and hike to the waterfalls of Blood Mountain Loop, the highest-elevation summit on Georgia's Appalachian Trail. Or get your feet wet by kayaking along the legendary Chattahoochee River. For a more leisurely vacation, join the wine lovers who come to sample some of Georgia's finest tipples on the Unicoi Wine Trail, starting from nearby Helen.

Go yodel-eh-hee-ho in the Bavarian-themed town of Helen

A 15-minute drive from your Cleveland vacation rental lies Helen, Georgia's iconic Bavarian-themed town. This small and ever-charming town is a quirky replica of an alpine village, set in the Appalachians instead of the Alps. It hosts a variety of fun festivals, from the annual hot air balloon race in June, to the popular Oktoberfest beer festival in September and November. If you want to stay close to your base, you can explore the White County Historical Museum on Cleveland Square. Built in 1860, this redbrick courthouse is crammed with historical artifacts from the North Georgia region, including some curious local clay pottery.

4 seasons' greetings from Cleveland

Cleveland is a town for all seasons — its long, hot summers have temperatures reaching up to mid-80s, while the bright, frosty winters turn it into a twinkling picture-postcard sight. The spring and summer months are always busy in the mountains; however, it's fall that brings a wealth of visitors to Cleveland, thanks to its fabulous fall foliage. In summer and fall, Cleveland vacation rentals can get booked up quickly, so it's advisable to book well in advance for the pick of the crop.

Cleveland: Where wild rivers flow

Just north of Cleveland are the southern fringes of the Chattahoochee National Forest, where you'll find more than 850 miles of fabulous hiking trails. One of the best for hikers of all abilities is the trek to Anna Ruby Falls, a series of cascading waterfalls surrounded by lush forest. Set just north of Helen and adjacent to the Unicoi State Park, the forest is home to a varied wildlife, including raccoons, whitetail deer and black bears. Thrill seekers should also chance the wild rapids of the Chattooga Wild and Scenic River, one of the top-notch white-water rafting destinations in the southeast.
