About Steve and Barbara Fleming

The Smokerise Cabin is owned by the Fleming Family. We recently purchased the property after retiring from a career with the United States Army. 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.

Steve and Barbara Fleming purchased this cabin in 2015

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.

Cute Cabin - Perfect for the family

  • 5 of 5

Smokerise cabin was very easy for us to find and it felt like home away from home the instant we got there. Check in/ out was a snap. There were 5 of us in the group and we appreciated spreading out in the 3 bedrooms to relax at night.

The kids loved the fire pit and adventuring around the property. The adults appreciated our own space at night and kitchen to cook in. The kitchen was well stocked with pots/ pans/ plates and everything else we looked for. For items we forgot (like bug spray), the convenience store was only minutes away.

We would recommend the property to other families interested in a quiet retreat from the days' activities in the area.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister, father and I (along with our dog Rudy) stayed at Smokerise for four nights. It was a wonderful cabin with all of the comforts of home. Rudy enjoyed the fenced yard while we all enjoyed the fire pit. The cabin is minutes from Helen and Cleveland. We would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks to Barbara and Steve for making our vacation wonderful.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came to the cabin with two other couples and had a wonderful time. The three bedrooms are separated and gave each couple privacy. The cabin is beautiful and was extremely clean with all the necessities. We felt at home and comfortable. I would definitely come back and bring the rest of my family.

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just returned yesterday from Smokerise Cabin. AWESOME Place. COZY/WARM & Inviting. Visited GA Mtns for the first time with our 9 & 11 yr old boys (and Labradoodle) and had a great time. Great dog friendly place and lots of space for him to run (he even has his new favorite stick). Nights were spent with a fire in the pit sitting in the hot tub drinking wine. Easy 4-5 min drive to Helen for shopping and sightseeing. Perfect mini vacay. Cabin had all the comforts of home and well kept. Simple things you wouldn't think of were there (coffee filters/smores sticks/etc). Highly recommend. Owners were easy to reach and very accommodating. Will have to return for a summer trip soon (at least that's what the kids said!)! Thank you for allowing us into your property.

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!
