About Heikki Rinta-Koski

We enjoy our little getaway to the mountains, especially hiking, mountain roads, exploring the small cities around here.

Heikki Rinta-Koski purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Heikki Rinta-Koski chose Clarkesville

This cabin is truly a getaway cabin. It is cozy while feeling spacious with all the windows. Firepit and hammock are our favorite features.

What makes this cabin unique

In nature, but still easy access, short dirt road leads to the cabin. The night sky is really nice to see form the hot tub without light pollution from cities.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved seeing the deer and enjoyed hot tubs every night.

Great beds!

We loved the movies + Netflix & PS3. Just Dance 3 was a blast!

The boys and hubby enjoyed:

-Anna Ruby falls

-Yonah Mountain

-Hog Wild barbeque

-Gold Grubbin Gems

-Hot Tubbing!

Helen was too touristy for us.

Best vacay ever!

well-kept cabin near Helen

  • 5 of 5

I spent the weekend at this cabin leading up to the eclipse. It's in a nice spot near Helen, and we enjoyed spending some time in the town and hiking nearby. The downstairs shower door was jammed when we arrived, but the owner came and fixed it quickly and we did not have any other problems.

Things I liked:

-The kitchen is well stocked with pans/dishes/soap/spatulas/etc. Often rentals only have the bare minimum, but we did not have a problem finding what we needed for cooking.

-The grill is super cool. The guys at the cabin were fan-girling. "Coolest grill i've ever used"

-The hot tub was relaxing and stargazing here was FANSTASTIC. You could make out the milky way after about midnight!!

-The picnic tables/hammock/fire pit in the yard is very nice. We spent a large amount of our time at the house out there.

-its quiet. Its set back from the road and there is mostly just woods behind the house (and then a Christian camp, if you go far enough).

The cons:

-the gravel driveway isn't great, and is a little stressful in lower cars.

-there is one neighbor very close

-there aren't really mountain views, at least in the summer when I was there. Maybe if you go to the top floor of the house and peer out the highest window.

One more note: i saw another review talking about spiders and yes, you may see one inside--this cabin is in the woods. We actually had a Argiope aurantia build a beautiful web outside the front door while we were there, and capture a cicada! It was fascinating and educational.

There is a cafeteria open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with good southern food in walking distance from the cabin.

Also across the cafe there is a gas station with general store for everyday supplies.

The location is in the middle of three cities, Helen, Cleveland and Clarkesville, each less than 10 miles away. Helen and Sautee, which is five miles from the cabin, offers great attractions including restaurants, shopping, activities like go-karts, golfing, tubing, helicopter rides, night life etc.

Clarkesville and Cleveland offer more traditional smalltown attractions with square in the center and small shops and cafes to be explored walking.
