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.

Fantastic property!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property in a secluded area not too far from Helen and the national parks. The river is at your disposal and plenty of space for dogs and people.

Peacful, Green, & Clean

  • 5 of 5

After clearing up some initial check-in confusion our stay was perfect ! ... Nancy & Robert were very responsive and did everything possible to make our time in their Cottage comfortable, relaxing, and memorable... The Cottage was surrounded by leafing trees with the Ferns, Azalea's and Rhododendron's beginning their bloom; What a peaceful setting... With the exception of one afternoon and one morning we had rain, and very heavy at times, making the river water high & murky, ( and the driveway a bit slippery)... In spite of this, and the occasional weekend armadas of Kayaks / Canoes, I managed to catch a couple nice fish (Spotted Bass and Rainbow Trout)... We also enjoyed our visits to Helen for shopping, eating, and people watching... While My wife napped and read her books, and I was able to get some fishing in, we both left the Cottage Happy and Content... We loved every minute of our trip and will be back ASAP !

PS - This was one of the "Cleanest" homes we have ever rented ! ... Thanks Nancy & Robert for staying on top of these type of details... For experienced renters they make all the difference...

Great for the whole family - coming back when it is warmer!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Nana's cabin! It is so warm and cozy and really feels like home! We spent most of our days away from the cabin but our last afternoon we hurried back to hang our enos and have a camp fire while listening to the Chatahoochee go by! The fire pit is amazing with plenty of places to sit around it! The kitchen had everything we needed for breakfast - which is the only meal we ate there - we had a picnic one day and ate at The Soda Fountain the other day. The cabin was clean and towels fresh, however being a pet-friendly cabin, my allergies were going crazy at night (my fault for not thinking about that) and i did see some pet hair when i moved a rug (again, my fault for not

Catching it was pet friendly). The screened in porch is great because you could see the water above the bushes and avoid the bugs!

We did not get in the hot tub.

A few things we forgot to pack: fishing poles and gear, ziplock bags, foil, a lighter for the fire!

We will be back Nana!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful well kept home, nicely furnished. Many extras for renters convenience, including large fire pit, swing by the river, tubes, kayaks, horse shoes & hammock.

Secluded yet an easy drive to nearby shopping, parks and attractions. Owners close by and easily accessible. We've been visiting North Georgia for years. This is by far our most favorite place to stay.

Awesome cabin on the river!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed this cabin on the river! Everything was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. Nancy was very helpful and friendly. We loved having the river right out the back yard and had a really fun time kayaking. We will definitely be back.
