About the property

Rustic Timberframe Cabin with Massive Pine Beams, One Bedroom, One Bath

Tucked away in your private get-a-way, you can enjoy looking at the trees while you listen to the sound of your own gurgling creek.

This private Timber frame cabin is airy, with rustic pine walls, and massive pine beams. A cozy dining nook is within easy reach of the long galley style kitchen, which overlooks the centrally located living room. The living room has carpet, a gorgeous stone fireplace for those chilly nights, and a sofa and a futon that opens up for those third and fourth guests.

A full bathroom and utility nook with a full size washer and dryer complete the downstairs. A large TV with DVD player and a wifi nook takes care of your electronic needs.

Woods stairs lead up to the large, private second floor with its comfy queen sized bed overlooking the woods, a cozy chair and ottoman, and large TV and DVD player to view your favorite shows and movies.

Spend peaceful moments on the large and very private back deck, with its built-in benches, patio furniture, bistro seating, and four person hot tub, while listening to the rustling leaves and the trickle of your private hidden creek, tucked away down in the glen behind the house. A short walk down the hillside trail allows you to relax on the creek side deck, or meditate on the large rock overlooking the creek, surrounded by nothing but trees.

There is two night minimum stay. Specials do not apply to holiday periods.

If you are reserving within 24 hours from arrival, please call or email the owner for instructions.

About Kate

I am originally from New England. I came to Georgia to attend chiropractic college. After Graduating with a Doctorate of Chiropractic, I went in search of a place that had clean water, clean air and a community of people that would appreciate the energetic technique of Network Spinal Analysis. After driving the entire country including a month on the Hawaiian Islands, I chose Northeast Georgia. I love how intact its nature is, its four seasons (with a much milder winter than New England!) and its warm and kind people.

Kate purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Kate chose Helen

When I was looking for a place to live, I wanted something remote, a place I could recover. My days are long and physically, emotionally and mentally demanding. As a single woman, I wanted to feel safe and still connected to the wildness of nature. This cabin afforded me that and more.

What makes this cabin unique

I love rocks and at the bottom of the trail to the creek there is a gorgeous rock. After sitting on the rock and soaking up the awesomeness of the "holler" (as they say up here) I knew I would buy the cabin. To my delight the inside of the cabin was gorgeous with its white pine timbers, fireplace and hot tub. It was a delicious place to live.

For the years that I lived in the cabin I would meditate daily on that rock. It feels to me like being in the womb of mother nature. I had a deck built on the creek and slept on that deck many a nights. Once 6 black bear approached the deck while I was on it. Luckily they were just as surprised to see me as I was them and no harm was done! I recommend sleeping in the cabin and not leaving food outside for very long.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love this cabin. The peaceful seclusion was just what we needed. After hiking Anna Ruby Falls and Dukes Falls, we came back to the cabin to witness the sunset in the hot tub. We hate to leave and return to reality!

Creekside Serenity

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is just like fairy tales of coming up on a cottage in the middle of the woods. It is clean and bright with lots of windows. When sitting in the hot tub all we heard was a lone bird singing to coming in starting a fire and having a glass of wine. This is exactly what we were looking for.

The furniture was so comfortable I just curled up to read in the loft looking out the window at the woods. The bed is soft and several pillows. I love the ceiling fan over the bed. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, glasses and silver wear. We made several meals while here.

It is close to we did drive a few minutes in to Helen GA for lunch and to watch the Fasching (a German version of Marti Gras). They had a small parade then went floating down the river in February. Fun to watch and stores and restaurants to poke around in while you are waiting.

Perfect secluded hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location if you want a secluded place to unwind and relax. The bed is super comfy and the upstairs loft is perfect. The hot tub got used more than the bed :) Definitely will recommend to anyone!

So peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderfully quiet week away in this cabin! It was a great getaway to be in the mountains alone and still close to Helen and Saute Nacoochee, which both had shopping, restaurants, activities and relaxing spa!!

Ahhh. Where do I begin. This cabin was amazing. Perfect distance from Helen. We ate at Troll Tavern. So so good. The people who own this cabin has literally thought of every single accommodation to make your stay feel like home. Not to mention how detailed they were with departure instructions, directions, and inside there was a binder FULL of things to do in Helen, places to eat (including their menus). I wasn't for sure how much cooking stuff they would have so I didn't buy much food but next time I will! There were tons of pots, pans, utensils and even a crockpot! The washer and dryer were perfect! I brought our own Tide pods and washed our clothes before we left. The bed was exceptionally comfortable as well as the pillows. The water pressure was great when taking showers. The cleanliness of the cabin was amazing! If I could give this cabin a 20 star I would. It was a short hike to the creek. Watch your step and find a walking stick! We can't wait to come back again.

Property was exactly as promoted. Had a great experience and looking forward to returning.

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as promoted. We had a wonderful trip and looking forward to our next visit. We sure hope that this property is available the next time. Would recommend this to anyone that does not have any restrictions such as stair climbing. Sure hope that we kept up with our portion of cabin care. Very secluded, very quiet, very peaceful yet just a short drive to the attractions in near by Helen and Unicoi State Park and Anna Ruby Falls. We did not venture to the creek due to both of us having issues with our legs. Sure we would have enjoyed it if we had ventured that way. Looking forward to a return visit. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy the property.
