About Linda or Jay Jones
I've gradually become a veteran at renting cabins, and nowadays I can usually recognize a legitimate inquiry from that of a disinterested net surfer, even before I answer a query. Basically, an interested person doesn't usually (but not always) file an inquiry; they actually look at the available information and I get a reservation request, instead of an inquiry. Over 98% of inquiries result in no booking! I can, with great accuracy now, spot a Ukrainian imposter (I've has seven so far) trying to scam me, just by the nature of the inquiry and the e-mail address they use. Even before that I rented enough cabins myself that I'm acutely aware of what the discriminating cabin renter is seeking. This knowledge has been my guide as I have sought to find the deficiencies, learn the desires and wants of guests, and implement the most effective measures to supply those needs. I am a native Georgian, and both my husband and I grew up in the mountains of northern Georgia. I have a college degree in English, and I taught high school English for several years, including while my husband was serving his one-year tour in Vietnam. We have been married for over 55 years, and despite our advancing age we are in good health so far and we frequently like to get away from duties with the grandchildren (we have 5), and just be alone together. Cozy Nook has met that need on numerous occasions, even before I purchased it. We loved the cabin so much that we offered to buy it from the previous owner, and to our surprise it was available for purchase, along with its charming sister property, Seclusion, which is a two-bedroom facility, every bit as isolated and charming as Cozy Nook, and just a short walk down the private road from Cozy Nook. I am very pleased to offer this property for rent, because I know you will love it as much as we have, and will want to return again and again. Again I emphasize: IF THE DATES YOU WANT AT COZY NOOK ARE BOOKED, TRY SECLUSION (VRBO #750370).

Why Linda or Jay Jones chose Sautee Nacoochee
It's all about privacy. We have rented cabins all over the mountains of North Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, as well as places like Aspen and Vail, Colorado, and other ski areas of the Rocky Mountain West and beyond. One of our favorite destinations was Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but every time we rented a cabin there it turned out to be a conglomeration of cabins crowded into a very small piece of real estate, so you were literally looking at the decks and hot tub areas of the neighbors all the time, and they likewise had a good view of you. When we found Cozy Nook, we never left it. We haven't rented another cabin since we discovered this jewel. Now we know why (and have contributed to) an awesome 80+ five-star reviews accumulated by the previous owner, with only one four-star review, so far as we could find, and the cabin has far surpassed that number since I purchased it (140 as of this writing). It snuggles up against thousands of acres of the vast Chattahoochee National Forest, is located at the end of a private road (no trespassing!), and the only visitor you're likely to see is an occasional curious black bear (totally harmless). Once you experience Cozy Nook, you'll come back again and again, because there's nothing better as a couple's getaway anywhere. And I've experienced accommodations in more than fifty countries. IF THE DATES YOU WANT AT COZY NOOK ARE BOOKED, TRY SECLUSION (VRBO #750370).
What makes this Cabin unique
As I said earlier, privacy and absence of prying eyes is the main benefit of Cozy Nook. Anyone can put together enough lumber, shingles, paneling, plumbing, wiring, and furnishings to make "a" cabin; the Cozy Nook difference is that it truly lives up to its billing as isolated and private. You are free to be totally yourself at Cozy Nook, and you'll love it! LIKE A WOOD-BURNING FIREPLACE? Many cabins don't have them because they're expensive to build and even more expensive to maintain. Often the property will show a photo of a fireplace, but never mention in the description whether it burns wood or is either gas logs (some heat) or electric heat (totally fake fireplace, no heat, just light effect). HERE IS A HUGE TIP IF YOU CAN'T FIND OUT IN THE DESCRIPTION: Look at the interior photos of the cabin, and if the television is ABOVE the fireplace, you can be sure it doesn't burn wood. The rising heat makes such a position for the television totally unfeasible. So if you see this and you want a real fireplace, move on to the next cabin on the list. It's not what you're looking for! Both our cabins (750370 and 750372) have totally refurbished wood burning fireplaces, done at a cost of $5,000 each. So with us, you're getting the real deal. And we supply our guests the name and phone number of a local guy who will deliver all the wood you need to keep your winter cabin warm and cozy, and at half the price the Helen convenience stores and other businesses charge. This charming cabin is often unavailable on weekends, so we offer the next door property, which we also own, as an alternative (vrbo 750370, named "Seclusion").

Had an EXCELLENT stay!
This trip was wonderful! It was a get away for me and the wife and the cabin and area were everything we could have hoped for!
We could not asked for a better cabin for our little getaway to Helen for Memorial Day weekend. Cozy Nook had everything we needed! It was clean as a whistle, easy to get to, secluded. It was just so comfortable that we didn't even want to leave to do our daily excursions. We are already looking at our next trip and are hoping that this sweet cabin is available on our dates! Thank you to Linda for making this such a wonderful weekend!
Mini anniversary getaway
Very secluded, and romantic. We enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend, and we will definitely be returning!
Great place. Will definitely go back. Had a wonderful time.
Excellent cabin for honeymoon.
This is a very comfortable cabin for two. My wife and I cooked most of our meals at the cabin, and found the cabin in general and the kitchen in particular were well equipped and well stocked. The owner was very courteous and thoughtful. After just a few days when we would return from an outing, it felt like we were returning home.
Three miles from downtown Alpine Helen, but feels like this one-bedroom rustic cabin is totally isolated, the perfect place for a romantic getaway with little to no possibility of unwanted visitors, traffic, or noise. Property is located in deep rhododendron forest at the very end of private road, the highest point on the entire property, and is snuggled up to many thousands of acres of national forest for maximum privacy. Spa area of deck is covered, deck totally secure from prying eyes. A well-accommodated full bath serves the bedroom, which has a new queen mattress and new linens, plus a brand new television and 65-channel cable television service. Enjoy finest relaxation and privacy, so romantic that you may not want to even leave the cabin. But remember that numerous activities abound in Unicoi State Park (fishing in numerous well-stocked area trout streams, beach, lake, boating, stunning Ana Ruby Falls farther up in Chattahoochee National Forest) and nearby Bavarian-themed Alpine Helen (great restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions, river tubing, golfing, canoeing and kayaking, horseback riding, etc). For the more adventurous, numerous walking trails are in the area, including the nearby segment of the famous Appalachian Trail, which crosses Highway 75/17 at Unicoi Gap a few miles from the cabin.
This charming cabin is often unavailable on weekends, so we offer the next door property, which we also own, as an alternative (vrbo 750370, named "Seclusion"). This is a larger cabin with two bedrooms, the same hot tub and private deck (actually even more private than Cozy Nook, if that's possible), plus a brand new king bed, mattress, and box springs in the master bedroom upstairs. Its VRBO number is 750370. It rents for only $115 per night most of the time, except during high occupancy periods such as Oktoberfest, when the price goes up a bit. Consider it if you can't get into Cozy Nook, which has developed a reputation as the consummate lover's cabin in the Helen GA area. Seclusion may be an even better alternative, it's just as clean, perhaps even more private, and it's got an impressive array of 5-star reviews.
