Absolutely ideal for a family of four or two couples traveling together, this cozy, single story, rustic mountain cabin features a covered, private hot tub, and a screened-in, well-appointed patio with BBQ. And with just two steps up into the home, this cabin is ideal for those travelers with mobility issues. You can even bring the family dogs!
This two-bedroom home with wooded view sits just a little over 30 miles south of the North Carolina border and roughly 90 miles north of bustling Atlanta. With access to hiking trails and breathtaking mountain vistas all within a short drive or even a casual walk, there are plenty of outdoor adventures awaiting close by. Or head over to pristine Unicoi Lake for zip lines, fishing, swimming, and kayaking, only two miles west.
Step across the front porch with its bistro table and chairs and into a warm and welcoming home brimming with rich wooden walls, floors, cabinets, and handcrafted furnishings.
The living room is outfitted with plenty of plush furniture and a warming wood-burning fireplace. Adjacent to this, there's a table and six available chairs offering plenty of seating options for everyone. Gather around for card games or board games or dig into a home-cooked meal prepared in the well-equipped, full kitchen.
The kitchen features a variety of accessories, utensils, and appliances including a stove, coffeemaker, blender, microwave, and a dishwasher to make cleanup a snap! And step outside into the well-appointed, screened-in back patio with table and chairs and gas grill to help out with your menu.
Right off the main room, there are two delightful master bedrooms with impressive wood framed queen beds and full bathrooms offering plenty of space for up to four guests. If you bring your dogs, there's just an additional pet fee.
WiFi is provided and there is a large, 42-inch flatscreen TV with satellite and a DVD player in the living room. Soak in the private hot tub located behind the home on the screened-in patio and enjoy the surrounding view of the forest.
This home sits just four miles from the heart of Helen, a Bavarian alpine-themed village where you'll discover numerous shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Take the family to the Helen Water Park, or be challenged by one of the fun mini-golf courses.
Adrenaline-junkies looking for bigger excitement can take a tube down the Chattahoochee River, or fly over the river and the treetops on a zip line. Or hop aboard a tour of some of the area's best wineries including Habersham Winery and Sautee Nacoochee Vineyards.

The cabin is beautiful and clean. The area is quiet and in a secluded neighborhood. We would rent it again.
Elizabeth P.Jan 2021
My husband and myself planned a little mountain getaway with our two youngest daughters last weekend and the Bird Haus cabin was just perfect!! The cabin was beautiful and just the right size. It had everything we needed and was such a cozy retreat while still being close to all the restaurants and fun activities around Helen. It only took us about 15 minutes to get anywhere we wanted to go. My 5-year-old really wanted us to get in the hot tub and I wasn't sure I would know how to work it, but the water was already heated upon our arrival and it was very user friendly and enjoyable with towels waiting for us right by the back door. The only suggestion I have, which I saw mention of in other reviews, would be less firm mattresses. That is purely a personal preference of course, but for us they were very firm and we had hurting backs and hips in the mornings. Thank you for all you did to make us feel right at home away from home!!
Paloma Z.Jan 2021
I would like to start by saying that this home is absolutely gorgeous, in a lovely part of North Georgia. It's pretty quiet and isolated, and the forest in the back is beautiful. It's got a classic log cabin feel, complete with front and back patio, fireplace, fully functional kitchen, comfortable living room, and even a hot tub. It's an easy drive to Helen, and we loved that it was a pet-friendly home. Our dogs had a blast, and it was a welcome getaway for all of us.
The owners of the house should really consider purchasing new mattresses for both bedrooms. I saw dozens of reviews talking about how awful the mattresses are, and I thought the comments were probably exaggerating, but I came to find that they were not. The mattresses truly are terrible. All four of us woke up with aching backs, and spent all night trying not to roll into each other in the center of the bed. Given the price per night of this rental, I think the owners should not only be able to buy new, decent mattresses, but that you should be able to expect a comfortable night's sleep if you are going to pay over $500/night total. Such discomfort and lack of sleep can easily ruin an otherwise beautiful getaway. On a similar note, Vacasa or the owners should consider providing a bit of firewood for renters... it would be an added bit of charm and convenience, since we had to go out and buy our own, not knowing it wouldn't be provided.
The next bit of feedback is for Vacasa, not the homeowners. It should not have been so difficult to get our lost item back. We had to drive back to the Vacasa center not once, but twice, over the course of over a week, for our lost item, because the communication was so slow and so poor. It was impossible to get ahold of the homeowner or the local staff - we were having to communicate with Vacasa staff all over the country in attempts to get back our lost item. So if you are a renter, do not leave anything, because it may be really difficult to get it back.
Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager. They will discuss the mattresses with the homeowner; however, please note the mattresses are purchased by the homeowner, at their comfort level. We apologize for the inconvenience and do hope we can host you again.

Everything was great! Would come again.

Perfect cabin for two couples
Mireille E.Nov 2020
We stayed at the bird house for 3 nights. We loved the place very clean and near from helen, neighborhood is safe, many hikes to do within 30 minutes, the jaccuzy is a plus but the blower was off and half of the jets didn't work, also the front light didn't work, we switched the bulb from the back patio to the front to have a light. Overall the bird house is a confortable place to stay and we enjoyed.
Hello, Mireille! We’re sorry to hear you had concerns with your Vacasa home! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We apologize for any maintenance oversights and are happy to address any incidents as they arise. We encourage guests to call our 24-hour Guest Service line to allow us the opportunity to rectify the situation. Our local staff will be notified with this feedback to ensure the conditions of the home are up to par. Thank you!
Joe C.Oct 2020
This cabin was perfect for our families long weekend getaway
Debra H.Oct 2020
Great Cabin. My husband and I were there with another couple.
We had plenty of space for the 4 of us. We each had had our own bedroom with bath, which was nice. Living area and kitchen very spacious. We would rent again.
Maribeth S.Sep 2020
This cottage was just like the pictures. It was well maintained and very clean. Great location, private And quiet, but not far from Helen Or other attractions.
Debra J.Sep 2020
All amenities needed
Gail J.Sep 2020
It was an amazing and well kept cabin! They did a great job keeping it clean and well organized. The hot tub worked perfectly fine and it wasn’t too far from the downtown Helen area!
M Roberta M.Aug 2020
The cabin itself is great. However!!! The fact that guests have to haul their trash 3.6 miles in their vehicle to the main Vacasa trash dump is a real killer. I wish Vacasa would warn renters of this rule. It was not a very good experience, since it was raining. Also, Vacasa could leave at least an extra trash bag based on renters stays, we had 3 nights, were left with 3 trash bags.... In case an accident would happen in the kitchen etc. In my opinion it’s better safe than sorry, or tell the renters to bring extra trash bags....
Roberta, thank you so much for staying with us and providing your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience of the trash. Unfortunately, it is important that the trash gets taken to a specific place as there is a high bear presence which can cause many issues for the homeowners as well as the neighbors. We appreciate our guests cooperating with this request. Vacasa provides a starter pack of laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels, trash bags, etc. Anything that is needed after what is provided is up to you to provide for yourself. We are glad you enjoyed our cabin and we hope to host you again soon!
Aaron P.Aug 2020
Appreciate the cleanliness. It had all kitchen items needed for cooking. Really enjoyed the screened in porch with gas grill and hot tub.
Marla T.Jul 2020
This cabin was perfect for our family of 4. Very clean and well kept. Will definitely come back!
Tina J.Jul 2020
Me and my bff of 43 years rented this cabin for 4 days we loved the cabin and loved the little German town in Helen we had a blast thank you
Penni Z.Jul 2020
Th cabin was clean, comfortable, and close to Unicoi State Park and Helen, GA.
Carol B.Jul 2020
The hot tub did not work and the dishwasher sounded like a wrecking yard. Also main ceiling lights in living area had a bad fluorescent strobe thing going on. But it’s a very cute place and was spotlessly clean. We were disappointed about the hot tub- especially since I had inquired about it before arrival (twice) and never got an answer. And don’t plan to run the dishwasher while you are trying to sleep.
Hi, Carol! We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to read you were not happier with your accommodations. The hot tub has been fixed. The dishwasher is operating correctly, and we do apologize if it was too noisy for you. The living room light does have a strobe effect if the dimmer is turned too far down. Thank you!
Nick F.Jul 2020
The cabin was very comfortable
David F.Jul 2020
The Bird Haus was one of the best places I’ve ever stayed at. It was quite, clean, and had all the comforts of home. We were close enough to town that we didn’t have to stress for anything and yet far enough that we didn’t have to hear the noise. We are already making plans for next year. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and making our stay so relaxing.
Charlotte G.Jun 2020
The house was nice looking and in a very quiet area.
Elizabeth S.Jun 2020
They house was clean too to bottom. Accommodations were close to attractions and the screened back porch was our hang out. The house is in a quite neighborhood and we could enjoy listening to the birds and the rain.
Alexis K.Jun 2020
Perfect getaway for my family of 3. Owner provided movies, gas grills, cleaning supplies,etc. Beds were comfortable and loved screened in porch and hot tub was perfect
Jason G.May 2020
This cabin is located about 10 minutes outside Helen and 5 minutes from Anna Ruby Falls. It is the perfect size, with 2 queen bedrooms, both with full baths. The living room and kitchen have everything you need, including microwave and two types of coffeemakers (Keurig and drip). The best part is, of course, the screened in back deck, which backs up to the forest and includes a very comfy hot tub. My only two ‘wishes’ for the property would be screens for the windows (you can’t let the mountain air in without inviting swarms of bugs in with it) and a wee fire pit. Other than that, thank you for the perfect getaway.
Harley K.May 2020
For our first vacation without the kids in 4 years it was fantastic! Everything was wonderful!
Erica R.Mar 2020
The cabin was absolutely beautiful. The beds were awful it felt as if we were sleeping on cardboard. When going to the cabin also beware you need to back into the drive way because it is a tight fit. The scenery was so perfect.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Erica. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your comments to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Paula G.Mar 2020
cozy home, nice setting. we enjoyed everything about our stay except our cabin was not cleaned when we arrived at 7pm. vacasa was apologetic and came right on to clean the cabin. had a great rest of the stay
Ryan J.Feb 2020
Very cozy and secluded convenient to Helen and other sites. Everything you need for a great stay. Very clean I would stay here again.
Heather S.Feb 2020
We had everything we needed and the layout of the home is great for a family. I can’t think of anything negative to say.
Jayne G.Jan 2020
my family has stayed at this cabin numerous times through the years & stay at least 1-2 times every year. however this year was a little different. a good bit more expensive but the hot tub we had reported the last 2 yeasr was still broken with the same problem & had to be worked on while we were there & wasnt able to be really fixed. It needs a new hot tub, yet we still had to pay the hot tub fee. There were other things like under furniture & behind furniture that needed cleaning. animal snacks it appeared to be were under the sofa & chair. a cushion for the kitchen table was wet but still in chair. we still love the home just wish for the money we paid that it would have been cleaner.
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay here. The hot tub has been working well in the past, and we do apologize it had some issues during your stay. Maintenance was happy to come and out get it running for you to enjoy. We do wish you had reached out about the other items so we could have assisted you with those as well. We hope to see you again!
Andrew O.Jan 2020
well kept inside
Deborah N.Dec 2019
The place was great. Very clean! Great get away. Constructive criticism...replace the pod coffee machine and get a tv in bedroom with a little bigger screen. Shouldn’t cost too much.
Elice M.Dec 2019
Super cozy and sweetly decorated! This cabin was immaculate and well equipped. While there are other cabins around you, the setting still feels very private as the cabin is nestled in the woods. Very quiet! We enjoyed our stay and recommend this cabin!
Joshua L.Nov 2019
Great cozy location. It is the perfect cabin in the mountains. Very relaxing.
Ron W.Oct 2019
We loved the fireplace, and the screened in back porch, with the grill for cooking out. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed and then some. Would have used the hot tub, but didn’t bring a robe and it was chilly outside. Bed was comfortable, but pretty high off the ground. 😊 we brought our own hairdryer and was glad we did, because there wasn’t one. Everything else was great!
Diane G.Oct 2019
We enjoyed the cabin. Relaxing, clean, quiet. We will be back.
Johnny H.Oct 2019
A great place to spend time with your spouse. (Can also have your grandkids up for a night or two!)
Located in a quiet, isolated spot but close to many eating and entertainment spots.
Hleb F.Sep 2019
We LOVED this house. Pictures do not do this place justice. We felt very comfortable and had a wonderful stay!
Susan C.Sep 2019
The house was soooo clean- I don't walk barefoot in my own home lol...tons of privacy- good sized flat screen TV- important if your husband is into sports!! We don't have a hot tub...but food for thought... put the cover back on at night so it traps the heat- we had no idea but the hot tub is an extra special touch! My husband has a bad shoulder and he practically lived in it! Highly recommend!!
Jennifer B.Aug 2019
Lovely cabin. Just as expected. Private and comfortable. The kids loved all of the unique decorating, teddy bears and lots of birds. Great place to stay.

We stayed at Bird Haus cabin and it was great! Everything was so nice and cabin was secluded, peaceful and quiet. Hot tub was working great and so relaxing. Will definitely rent this cabin again.

MacKenzie C.May 2019
My girlfriends and I spent the weekend at the Bird Haus recently. We had a great time! The cabin came equipped with everything we needed for a weekend stay and it was only about a 10 minute drive into Helen.
Anna M.Feb 2019
Adorable little cabin central to everything. The pictures do not do it justice! It had everything we needed and was comfortable. We'd certainly stay here again!
Mike S.Jan 2019
The home was quiet, the street and woods peaceful and the cabin was comfortable. It felt like a second home the moment we walked in. The Christmas decorations were a nice touch.
Stacy S.Jan 2019
Ok for starters there are two Masters!! This is huge!! Beds were comfy and the kitchen is more equipped then any other place we’ve rented. The patio on the back was very nice with the Christmas lights lit. Just a perfect place to stay! We loved it!
Brandy G.Nov 2018
Loved this little cabin! It was perfect for us and we plan on going back!

joanna m.Aug 2018
it was quiet and the cabin was really clean!
Brenda H.Aug 2018
This is the perfect cabin which is only 6 miles from downtown Helen. My husband and I was celebrating our 16th Anniversary and have the best time. Love that the cabin was pet friendly!!! We will be back!
Deborah F.Jul 2018
The Bird Haus is beautiful! It's in the woods on a mountain with the feeling of complete seclusion, not part of a park full of other cabins. Hot tub was great, grill ready to go, games and movies already there, as well as foosball hidden under the coffee table top. Close to Helen, Unicoi State Park, and not too far from Tallulah Falls. Beds were very comfortable. Kids loved it. A great getaway we would definitely do again!
Lisa M.Jul 2018
I had such a great time and what a cute and clean cabin. Would rent the cabin again.
Maryann R.Jun 2018
My husband and I came this summer with our 7 yr old son. Very quiet, lots of shade and privacy. Cabin well stocked, only had to bring food and drinks of our own. Beds were a little tall but steps were provided. Very clean and cozy. Already thinking about booking another stay!
Jennifer C.Jun 2018
Deborah P.Jun 2018
Loved stay at Bird Haus and remembering some of my favorite decorations at the cabin and seeing new things added. Peaceful, beautiful, quiet cabin. Love the little garden and fence out side, most cabins don't have any landscaping.
Brian M.May 2018
Felt very secluded without being too far off the beaten path. Hot tub was great.
Ronnie L.May 2018
Everything. It was so cozy but plenty of room. Well stocked and loved the decoration. We had a relaxing and wonderful stay. Will definitely be back!
Jim W.May 2018
We loved our weekend at the Bird Haus. It was very clean and just the perfect size for us. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with every utensil and appliance we could ever want. The location is great being just a short drive from Helen and even closer to Unicoi State Park. We also appreciate it being dog friendly so we could have our girl with us. I highly recommend the Bird Haus!
Rachel Y.Apr 2018
This cabin was very clean and neat. It was well maintained and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of supplies for kitchen and bathrooms. The televisions and wifi worked great. We didn't use the hot tub but it was clean and appeared to be clean and maintained. The front of the cabin had nice plants which we appreciated. The area around the cabin was wooded but was not compatible for walking around and exploring.
Deborah B.Apr 2018
We loved the Bird Haus! It was a cozy cabin -- very clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen was very well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and the hot tub was wonderful. We enjoyed using the grill on the screened porch, and having a cheery blaze in the fireplace during the cool evenings was a nice addition. We highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for a nice getaway in the Georgia mountains.
Jon L.Apr 2018
Great smaller cabin. Secluded, private, and convenient. Great value.
Louise B.Mar 2018
This cabin was very spacious inside! It has all the amenities needed!! It is perfect for a family getaway! It has many games, movies and things for children to feel at home! The location is perfect to lots of great areas!!
Juliet S.Mar 2018
First vacation in 7 years and it did not disappoint. We found the home easily and arrived to a sparkling clean home! We found the hot tub already warm and the property was very peaceful. The home was complete with Direct TV so we were able to put on music while we cooked dinner in the open kitchen. Our dog loved the screened in porch and sniffing around the property. When it was time for a bed we chose between the two beautifully decorated rooms. The beds are a little high, but being tall was not an issue for us. Someone who was short or had medical issues might have a harder time getting in and out. There is a step stool beside the bed however. All in all a wonderful stay and we will be back!
Michael M.Feb 2018
We loved the cozy cottage. It was a rainy weekend and a nice fire and a game of cards was so relaxing. We loved everything about the cottage.
Heather S.Feb 2018
Very nice outside and inside. Lots of amenities and lots of space. Great for a small family. One of the nicer cabins we’ve stayed in on our trips to Helen.

Nice, clean and easy access to all points of interest in the area.
Meredith E.Oct 2017
Hot tub jets didn't work and water was a little murky. I didn't want to get in which was a disappointment. The dishwasher was so loud that we couldn't run it while we were in the cabin.
Brian A.Sep 2017
Very cozy cabin for a two couples or friends n family to get away. Recommended it to a friend after my stay because it was amazing. Will always remember this as my first cabin exprience at a great home with great friends.
William R.Sep 2017
Perfect for 2 couples or a family of 3 or 4. Not a good place for young children because there is no place to play around the house. Good location, especially for Unicoi.
Victor S.Aug 2017
Great for 4 people (we only had 2) comfy furniture, nice large master bathrooms for both bedrooms. Very convenient to the surrounding area and things to do.
Tony M.Jun 2017
Great cabin away from town, very roomy and the hot tub was great! Very quiet area. Great if you just want to relax and read a book or take the scenic roads surrounding the area.
Bonnie T.May 2017
I loved this place. It is out of the way and quiet, without being to far away from anything that you would like to do. I look forward to staying here again and will suggest it to all who are looking to get away.
Evan B.Apr 2017
Everything was just as the website said, very enjoyable time there. Fiance and I spent 3 nights here and loved it! Very cozy little spot!

Jayne G.Oct 2016
We have stayed in this cabin for years. It's a really great place to get away to relax & just rest. Equipped to feel like home but you know you are in a special place.
