About this listing
Very inviting and extremely well maintained home for your enjoyment! Our goal is to provide you with as much as possible to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We get lots of great reviews on this lovely cabin.
Sweet Retreat is perfect if you are looking for a quiet and private get-a-way. The kitchen is fully stocked for everything you may need to cook with. The living room has a love seat and chair that sits right in front of the gas fireplace for you to enjoy in the cooler months. The 42" flat screen is above the fire place and perfectly located so if you are sitting in the living room or laying in the comfortable log queen size bed (with feather topper) you can enjoy a movie or just watch some TV. Upstairs you have a full size private bath. Sweet Retreat also has wifi.
The kitchen area has a table w/ chairs for 4. Right off the living room you can go outside onto the over sized upper deck and enjoy the view of Mt. Yonah. If you enjoy grilling then you can cook on the gas grill and while enjoying the view from the rockers. There is a patio set for dining out. Sweet Retreat is a heavily wooded lot with plenty of privacy. Once you go downstairs you will see an amazing comfortable king size bed with feather bed topper. You also have a large flat screen TV in case you don't want to go upstairs and watch tv. There is also a full bath down stairs for your convenience. If this has not convinced you to book your reservations now then how does a huge hot tub on the private patio overlooking the amazing views sound? There is also a pool table downstairs for your enjoyment while staying inside. We also have added a new open deck with fire pit out front (fire pit is propane and not for roasting marshmellows or for cooking)
Keep in mind the many places to see and activities offered in Helen that are close by. A few places to visit while you are in Helen is Sautee Nacoochee and when you are here make sure you stop by the Old Sautee Store, built in 1873. The entrance is like a museum and everything remains in the store as it was when it closed down in the early 1900's. More modern items and gifts available in the new addition of the store that is in the back. Travel the Georgia Wine Hwy. Take in the Gold Rush town of Dahlonega with just about a 30 minute drive. Of course, Anna Ruby Falls and Unicoi State park are just a 10 miles drive or so to the North side of Helen. There are many water falls in the area including one called Dry Falls, just inside the N.C line. This one is unique in that you can walk behind the waterfall under the rock overhang. Beautiful site! Take time to visit Smithgall Woods and Tallulah Gorge and walk across the swing bridge. Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia. Beautiful!
We have provided a complete Picnic Pack for your convenience that is located in the cabin. Take this along with you for the day and enjoy the beautiful sites that the North Georgia Mountains have to offer. Check out georgiatrails com for more suggestions of places to see. You'll want to return for many years to come, as many of our guest do.
The entire cabin is yours to enjoy!
Interaction with Guests
We won't get a chance to meet you when you arrive. We will provide you with access to the home prior to your arrival.
Nice and private, especially when the leaves are on the trees. During the winter months you have a wonderful view of Mt. Yonah, but when the trees are full, it's a bit more difficult to see. A few other cabins in the area.
You will need your own transportation. Public is not available (other than taxi service). There are so many wonderful things to see that you will want to be able to go see them. Brasstown Bald (the highest point in GA), waterfalls, state parks, etc.

This cabin does offer WIFI. However, it is satellite wifi. It's the only thing we have to offer and can provide to guest. Realize that if you plan to work on your trip, this may not be adequate for you. We've never had complaints, but it is definitely slower than your average high speed in the city.
