Excellent cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Very nice floor plan. Fully equipped with everything you need. Close to many hiking trails and town of Helen. The loft bathroom has a huge jacuzzi tub but we could not get the drain plug to hold water. We would definitely recommend this cabin.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We will check out the drain plug in the tub.

So Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

We drove 6 hours from Gainesville FL to this cabin, and it met and exceeded all our expectations! We had a blast playing ping pong and cooking out on the grill. Helen was so close and stores were closer than we expected. Will look forward to coming here again!!!

Beautiful cabin in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing rental - beautiful three level cabin with plenty of room and privacy. Cabin is fully stocked to allow for meal prep, family fun and relaxation. Cabin is atop a mountain so the views are magnificent. We had campfires each night under a sea of stars. Close to Helen, Cleveland, Dalonega, Uniconi State Park and lots of other treats in the Georgia mountains. The whole family loved the game room, the games, and the decks. Cabin is clean and beds are comfortable. We can't wait to come back!

The Red Star Lodge is centrally located to all that the Northeast Georgia mountains have to offer. Within 10 minutes or less you will find the towns of Helen (8 miles), Sautee (3 miles) and Clarkesville (9 miles) and Unicoi State Park (8 miles). You may find so much to do here that you may not travel any further. But within 20 minutes you will find the towns of Cleveland (12 miles) and Cornelia (15 miles) and the Lake Burton area (12 miles). Again activities are numerous, but maybe on your fourth or fifth day you are ready to explore more . Within about 30 minutes you will find the towns of Clayton (30 miles) and Hiawassee (30 miles) and Tallulah Gorge (25 miles) and Moccasin Creek (20 miles) State Parks. Or you may find a rocker on the main level deck or the hot tub on the lower deck to be the perfect location for you, so be sure to save time maybe on days six or seven to just relax.
