Cozy Nook has recently been upgraded in several areas, including a new fireplace, new linens and mattress, more lighting, blackout curtains, an outdoor fire pit, new microwave and toaster, and on and on. The cabin is located three miles from downtown Helen, but feels like this one-bedroom rustic cabin is totally isolated. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway with little to no possibility of unwanted visitors, traffic, or noise. Spa area is covered for inclement weather, privacy superb.

The space
At Cozy Nook, the deck is totally secure from prying eyes (one guest complained he could see a cabin across a deep valley 200 yards away only when the leaves have fallen--but it's much lower than Cozy Nook, and with our privacy screening very little can be seen of Cozy from there, and we've walked there to check out the visibility). A well-accommodated full bath serves the bedroom, which has a new queen mattress and a new television. A new wide-screen television (with recently upgraded cable service to include dozens more channels) and DVD player have been added to the comfortable fireplace room, and there is a generous selection of DVDs to watch. 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 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.

The lodging features one comfortable bedroom with queen bed (brand new mattress) and a full bath and tub/shower with convenient and safe step-in (garden tub) feature. In summer, spring, and fall, enjoy total seclusion both in the cabin and on the private deck out back, complete with roofed hot tub, and enjoy the view of the dense forest and the nearby mountains, complete with an awesome display of fall colors peaking out in October. In May the rhododendrons are in full bloom, the temperature is usually perfect, and the ambiance is almost palpable. In cooler winter months, when the leaves are off the trees, one can see another cabin far across a deep valley, but they can't easily see you because Cozy Nook has a much higher elevation, so privacy isn't significantly compromised even then. During the cold periods relax in front of the cozy wood burning fireplace in the great room, enjoy an occasional snowfall, and just relax with your loved one. The hot tub is a real pleasure, and if you get to enjoy it while the snow is falling it's truly a rare treat. Go out to eat at one of the fine restaurants in Helen, cook up your own fare in the well-stocked kitchen, or grill a steak on the deck's new Weber charcoal grill, which has all the needed Weber utensils. Enjoy cable television in HD and big screen in the great room, where a generous selection of quality DVDs is on hand. Bring your computer and smart phone, and you can access the internet throughout the facility by using the new WiFi just installed (access instructions provided just before your arrival). It's a little bit of heaven near a place called Helen, and you won't find a more satisfying place to call home for a short time.

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 you won't be burning wood in that fireplace. 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 (Seclusion and Cozy Nook) 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.

Here is the recommendation I mentioned: This charming cabin is often unavailable on weekends, and is at this writing booked completely on weekends for the next six weeks. IF YOU CAN'T GET INTO COZY NOOK, PLEASE CONSIDER OUR NEXT-DOOR (BUT OUT OF SIGHT) "Seclusion" CABIN, as an alternative.

I and my husband are retired, and what started out as renting cabins for vacations gradually led to purchase of our two favorites and signing up to rent them to guests. It has been marred by many frustrations, but nevertheless we enjoy it and have had only rare guests who abuse the facilities in some way. We love to give an excellent experience to all who rent our cabins, and we get many good reviews. Our deepest appreciation to all our guests over the years.
