The perfect getaway cabin located in Alpine Helen, GA. Cabin features one bedroom that is a loft and one bath with large indoor jetted tub that seats 2 people. You can relax inside the cabin with the flat screen TV and enjoy to the fire place in the living room. The bedroom has a queen size bed.

The Cabin is within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants of Alpine Helen, if you are willing (there is a big hill) you can park your car and not have to drive for your stay. The relaxation of being away from it all but close enough to all the action in Helen!

The Cabin is tastefully furnished and features a cozy dining area. Kitchen is also fully furnished and features a charcoal grill to prepare that perfect dinner.

The Cabin has a porch overlooking the wooded mountain terrain.

Welcome to a relaxing cabin in the North Georgia Mountains! Where you can go shopping, tubing, horseback riding, hiking, restaurants, golf or just relax! Park your car and walk to everything! You are sure to have a great time in this German Village!

***Downtown Helen is a half mile walk, 1/10 of a mile is steep incline/decline and the other 4/10 is flat which takes my family about 15-20 minutes to walk. This walk is not recommended for the elderly/handicapped/poor health individuals.

About Christy Verzi

Both my husband and I work in Atlanta and we have 2 wonderful girls.

Why Christy Verzi chose North Georgia Mountains

We were looking for a weekend get away from Atlanta and Helen was about an hour away. The bonus is that our cabin is about a half mile walk from the cabin.

Cozy little get away is exactly what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Found this place by mistake and loved everything I read and saw. Your close to town but seriously in the middle of no where too. Our first night I could hear bears in the woods. I loved it! The local town was filled with so many fun shops and after a long day of walking we would rest in the cabin. Defiantly going to look into another visit in the future.

Reasonable living quarters..

However, the bed was like sleeping in a bowl and expect the owner to visit. The remote doesn't work well with the current TV set up. But great location.

Owner's Response: Our cabin is a sweet little rustic weekend cabin in Helen and the North Georgia Mountains and I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy all it has to offer. When booking someone's personal vacation home ALWAYS ask questions so that the owner can inform you if this is the perfect match or not. This is my job to make sure that each and every guest has the best experience possible! Yes, in the Short Term Rental Agreement and the Welcome to the cabin email that you read and signed states that I might stop by to introduce myself. So many of our guests become returning guests and some have even become close friends, this is what it is all about!

Great cozy cabin for two & very convenient to main street Helen.

  • 4 of 5

Overall enjoyed our stay very much. Only two things kept this from a 5 star review: the many insects present inside the cabin (needs to be sprayed or bug bombed) & the very poor water pressure in the shower (could probably be much improved with a different shower head).

Owner's Response: These do have monthly pest control service for all of our cabins but with the summer months does bring in the occasional bug, welcome to the Heart of the North Georgia Mountains! As for the shower head, I cater to our regular guests and their needs/wants at our cabins. This cabins regular guests requested a raindrop shower head so the shower head stays!
