Dog-friendly, two story cabin in woods w/ screened-in deck, hot tub, pool table

Enjoy your next escape to the Appalachians in this adorable, two-story cabin in the woods with mountain views, a well-appointed screened-in deck, private hot tub, and outdoor firepit. It's even dog-friendly.

Offering two cozy master suites, this quiet and inviting home is just four short miles away from the quaint Bavarian alpine village of Helen with boutiques and restaurants aplenty. Or if you're looking for some fun on the water, take a trip over to shimmering Unicoi Lake, a 1,050-acre state park, just two miles west for fishing, hiking, bird watching, and boating. Don't forget the camera!

With beautiful rock work and rich wooden accents and features both inside and out, this Sautee Nacoochee home looks and feels like it's a natural extension of the forested landscape, while still offering plenty of modern conveniences.

Toss a log or two into the fireplace and decompress in the comfortable living room with luxurious leather furniture and a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows offering an unobstructed forest view.

Directly adjacent to this room, there's a dining room table with six matching chairs and a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a large, side-by-side refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, blender, toaster, and dishwasher.

Step out onto your screened-in, well-appointed deck with table and chairs, private hot tub, gas grill, wall water feature, and LED non-heating fireplace to help set the mood on cool, starlit nights.

There are two rustically stylish master suites with king-sized log frame beds and two full bathrooms. For additional sleeping options, a futon is also provided. With two bedrooms and a futon, this home sleeps up to six guests, plus the family dog (up to three), with an additional pet fee.

For home entertainment options, there's a second story loft that overlooks the living room complete with a pool table. WiFi is provided, and there's also a large, 60-inch flatscreen TV with Blu-ray/DVD player in the living room if you want to catch up on your favorite shows or movies. Or pick up the essential ingredients for some s'mores and gather around the firepit in the front yard.

Located along the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest, you'll have no trouble finding trailheads close by for incredible hikes throughout the area. Run the Chattahoochee River in a raft or tube, or race above the treetops on a zipline. If your idea of exploration is window shopping and fine dining, you'll find a number of boutiques, restaurants, and even some wineries in the Helen area located just four miles from your front door.

If you're thinking of escaping to the wilderness, book this wonderful cabin today and start packing those bags!

Loved the cozy living area and fireplace. Hot tub was comfortable, as well as the bed. Plenty of privacy on the back deck.
Denise A. Mar 2019
Everything was perfect. The pictures were exactly what you get! It was quiet, close to all of the things we wanted to do in the area. We went shopping in Helen, hiked to Ruby Falls, went horseback riding at Chattahoochee Stables...had a great time. House was warm and welcoming, the loft was perfect for the kids to play in. Would def recommend this house to families, friends or a couple!

My girlfriend and I took a mini vacation to Helen to do some hiking. We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The cabin was very clean including the Hot tub! We will most diffintly will be booking this cabin again. It was close to town and secluded from the other cabins.
Trish B. Jan 2019
We loved our stay for Christmas! It was cozy and beautiful. The hot tub was a great bonus. There were only a few downsides to staying...the parking is on a very steep incline, the pool sticks need to be replaced, and the dumpsters you have to take your trash to were so full we had to take the trash back to the cabin and wait for it to be emptied. These things should not deter anyone from staying here though! Great place to unplug and unwind!

We loved the location. Not far from Helen at all. The cabin was very cozy for 2 couples yet we had our privacy with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Cabin was nicely decorated and had all the comforts of home. Only issues were the TV remote would not work and we called and spoke with 2 different persons but no one came to repair or replace the remote which was inconvenient when trying to change channels or volume. The other thing was we used the fireplace only one night as the chimney did not draw as it should have and we had a very strong smoke smell in the cabin and had to open the door to release the smoke smell. Other than this, we really enjoyed our stay and would use Vacasa again for vacation rental.
Manager response:
We are glad to hear this guest enjoyed their time at this amazing cabin! The TV remote has been replaced and our local team will make sure the chimney is in good working order. We can't wait to host this guest again soon!
Debra M. Oct 2018
Close to everything. Very nice cabin. Nice setting, fireplace, pol table was fun!
Elretha T. Oct 2018

Marilyn T. Jul 2018
We have a great time. Peacuful place and everything in the cabin to relax. Located 12 minutes drive from Helen and close to ana rubby fall and Unicoi park
Oliver R. Jul 2018
The cabin is spacious and has room for all guests to spread out. Comfortable cabin, lots to do inside if your plans get rained out for the day.
Stephen A. Jul 2018
Nice cabin! Very clean! We enjoyed the stay.
Ursula D. Jun 2018
Quiet and comfortable, perfect for relaxing. Ambiance upon arrival was beautiful. Hot tub was wonderful after a full day of hiking. Kitchen had everything needed for home cooked meals. Plenty of dishes and flatware. Lots of games and beautiful trails with stunning views nearby. I wouldn't recommend walking your dog down the length of the road. Besides the inclines a couple of the locals just let their dogs run. We didn't have huge issues but it did get scary enough a few times. Twice was enough of that for us so we just stuck to long walks on the trails. We also had a friendly and extremely emaciated dog show up and hang out on the porch. I walked him back to his property as his name and number was provided on his tags. Personally it bothers me to see that. So dangerous for the dogs and potentially for people. Some trucks just flew down the street and with the curves and dips... The cabin is absolutely beautiful with comfortable beds and couch. I didn't have cell svc but wifI was provided. Which was perfect for unplugging. We had a minor issue and management was responsive. We loved the cabin and location and were extremely happy with our experience. We had amazing day adventures and our furbaby whom thoroughly enjoyed himself as well. He was able to be participate in everything we did, including dining out in town. So many dog friendly shops. His favorite was all the hiking and tubing he did with us. We love, loved it. So pleased this years family vacation was a huge success and we will definitely use vacasa again.

Brittany Z. Mar 2018
Went on a trip with friends for a weekend getaway! Had such an amazing time. Beautiful cabin would definitely reccomend to others
Lindsay M. Feb 2018
My sister and three of her friend and I stayed in Buckhorn and LOVED it! The first night we relaxed in the hot tub and the second night we laid on the big comfy sectional couch and watched a movie on the huge screen television. The beds were actually pretty comfortable and so was the couch. The kitchen had everything we needed for breakfast the first day. There were five women and we never had to re-up on towels. There were enough for us all to shower and have some for the hot tub.
During the day we went down to Helen; only about a 10 minute drive. And then we went to Yonah Mountain Vineyards. That’s a whole different review! But it was in close proximity to the cabin and so worth the 30 minute drive.
We had no complaints about the cabin and will definitely be returning.
Erica M. Jan 2018
This was a great cabin! We spent New Year's weekend here with 2 couples and had plenty of room. We enjoyed the loft with the pool table and lots of games. The kitchen was great for cooking in. We loved the screened in porch and hot tub. It was cold out so we used the fire pit for some marshmallows, and built a fire in the living room while we watched the ball drop on the large TV. We went to the nearby Anna Ruby Falls for a short and beautiful hike. The large windows show a nice view all around!
Matthew B. Dec 2017
There is no way that we saw to improve. It was a great experience in a great area for a great price. We will be back.
Jessica R. Dec 2017
The cabin is fabulous! It’s clean, fun and cozy. The neighborhood is safe and lovely. The window views are more woods than mountains but beautiful nonetheless! It has everything you need. We enjoyed our time in Helen, but more so, the hiking in the area. Raven Cliff Falls was my favorite!
Dean W. Dec 2017
very comfortable, nicely decorated, kitchen is well appointed, very private but convenient to town.
Kathryn S. Nov 2017
We truly enjoyed staying at the cabin for Thanksgiving with friends. We had six people and did not feel overcrowded in the home. The fire pit was a nice add, but no place to sit. There were plenty of dishes to cook with. The town was close enough to get out of the house. It was a very quiet area.
Bert P. Oct 2017
as stated above
Pamela H. Oct 2017
This is our second time using Vacasa (although it was under a different name last year) and we really enjoyed it each time. We love being away from town just a little but still close enough that it isn't a long trip.
Candace J. Sep 2017
This was a last minute reservation after spending a week with no electric or water. We were exhausted when we got there. We did not venture out much. Basically our entertainment was the hot tub and the pool table. We slept a lot. The house is very nice and quiet. A little too remote to suit me. A hummingbird came to the window to say good morning. Overall it is a great property.
Suzette B. Sep 2017
The area is great with paved roads and driveways. Views are great, especially in the fall/winter.
Robert B. Aug 2017
When I made these reservations I was reading some of the reviews on this cabin. Some were pleased and some were not. Some were complaining on the old couch not having enough cushion in it. There is a very nice sectional now in the cabin that is different from the picture so obviously the owners replaced it. Some were complaining on the cleanliness but it was very clean when we arrived. The steep driveway may not be suitable for some guests but we all enjoyed our stay.
Courtney H. Aug 2017
Beautiful home and amenitites great.
Scott W. Aug 2017
Overall it was a great experience my sister also rented a cabin nearby so we were all able to meet up and have plenty of room for barbecues.The jacuzzi is massive! The cabin is Centrally located so were able to go ziplining right down the mountain,Lazy River riding around the corner as well and Shoals Falls in a 3 day span.I already have recommended it to friends and family.
Melody J. Jul 2017
The Vacasa staff were very helpful. Unfortunately, the couch and loveseat are completely broken down and we had to sit on the kitchen table chairs majority of the time. The owners should be ashamed of themselves. We left a day early. Otherwise I wouldn't have minded paying the amount we did for the cabin.
Manager response:
We are very sorry to see these guests were so uncomfortable due to the furnishings. The owners will have new sofas in the home by mid-July. Thank you!
Patrick H. Jul 2017
great time! property was very clean. It can be troublesome to take out the trash if you do not have a truck to drive to the dumpster
Julie C. Jun 2017
Cabin was clean overall and the kitchen well stocked, but there is a very steep driveway that does not accommodate those who use a cane or other walking assistance device. Living room furniture needs to be replaced, the couch and loveseat cushions do not stay in place. The screen on back porch is not attached properly which allows mosquitos and rodents access. With a little TLC it could be very nice, except for the steep driveway
Manager response:
We apologize the screen door was loose without us realizing. This has been fixed. The living room furniture is new within the past year and is in good condition. Thanks!
Matthew B. Jun 2017
The cabin was incredible and the atmosphere was perfect. Great getaway and already miss it.
Eric W. May 2017
We really enjoyed our stay there. And we would highly recommend for other to stay there. It is a really great cabin. Quiet and nice place
Ashley M. Apr 2017
My family absolutely enjoyed every bit of our cabin. The whole cabin is spacious and perfact in every way. Only down fall is the step driveway.
Xinia Y. Apr 2017
We enjoyed three great days at Buckhorn with our family and two dogs! Loved playing pool in the loft area and liked the rustic charm of the cabin. The downward sloping driveway was not suitable for our grandmother, however, and was a little scary in the rain. We loved being so close to Anna Ruby Falls and Helen.
Desiree C. Apr 2017
I spent a weekend with my daughters..elementary school age..we had a ball! The only thing I didn't like about this particular home was the driveway..very steep, though it was pav3d..I had car troubles on the way in and I was worried about this..and the cabin was too close to the neighbors..but other than that it was nice and peaceful!
Julio N. Apr 2017
Beautiful place. Charming home. Uncomfortable mattressess and pillows. The rest u already know.....
Heydy G. Apr 2017
This place was great! Awesome views, clean and safe. We were able to bring our family pet which is a plus. The location is great. We were 10 min from Anna Ruby's Fall. Kids went searching for stones at Gold n Gem Grubbing. We also enjoy some zip lining and smores. Kitchen had everything we needed. It was a great experience.
Jennifer G. Apr 2017
Great place to recharge. Quiet and private. Well stocked kitchen.
Peggy D. Apr 2017
We only stayed 3 nights but they were enjoyable for most part. My husband is a Pastor and we needed to get away from it all a while. Cabin was beautiful and really enjoyed the view. We seen other cabin's that we would like to try also.
Chris H. Mar 2017
Enjoyed a three night stay with my family and dog. Perfect location for hiking and trips to Helen. The hot tub was wonderful and we made use of Netflix as well.
Tammara W. Mar 2017
quiet place
Destiny C. Mar 2017
I recently just visited with my Fiancé and we loved it , it's so quiet and relaxing . It is just right for a perfect get away
Matthew G. Mar 2017
Great cabin in a perfect spot.
Lois P. Feb 2017
Great place to stay and relax.
Latrisha M. Feb 2017
This cabin is nice and cozy. It has the right amount of space for a group of six. Its not too far from the little shops and has a great view. I would suggest that someone is available for customer service at all times and that the live seat recliner is fixed bc one of the seats would not recline.
Lisa B. Jan 2017
Loved the location and the cabin was perfect for a family of 4 and the kids loved the loft area
Gary S. Dec 2016
Great place to stay, convenient location
Melinda K. Dec 2016
The drive up to the cabin has beautiful, scenic views.Very enjoyable.Arriving at the cabin it is comfy, cozy, beautifully done,clean, well equipped.My family of 3 enjoyed playing pool and relaxing in the hot tub.Our 2 dogs also enjoyed our
time here.The cabin is privately nestled in the woods but has a very nice mountain view from either the loft or the back porch.I am already wondering when we can return. : )
Brooks B. Dec 2016
Very great experience, thank you!
Deborah W. Dec 2016
We came here to relax. The cabin is near some others but is very private. It's partially up the mountain and the large windows in living room give an amazing view even though you can't really see the mountains. The cabin seems bigger than it is because they didn't waste an inch of space. The bedroom is dark enough you can sleep in if you want. And we enjoyed the fireplace so much! We went in the winter so most of Helen was closed down but we enjoyed visiting the waterfalls in the area. Ana Aruba Falls and Helton Creek were both easy hikes with beautiful views. The only downside to the cabin is the sofa and loveseat that need to be replaced. There's no stuffing in the cushions. This cabin is one of the best fits for us we have experienced.
Daniel H. Dec 2016
Great property and convenient location.
Lisa O. Nov 2016
The buckhorn cabin was very nice, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back another time.
Kathleen T. Nov 2016
This was a great cabin in Sautee Nachoochee. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked enough for cooking breakfast and dinner. The surrounding area was nice and the cabin was convenient to Helen. It is just about a 40 minute drive to Dahlonega and the beautiful wineries in that area.
Matthew C. Oct 2016
This cabin was clean, and had all the necessities. Couches could use replacement/re-stuffing. View was not scenic/panoramic, mostly forest view. Good windows and natural light though. Fireplace was excellent as well as location/access to the cabin. Driveway is very steep, as is normal for this general area. Would use Vacasa again, just not this exact location for us personally.
Lorraine P. Sep 2016
I have been coming to these cabins in Helen for over 10 years. It is REALLY a home away from home where all you have to do is bring your food. The convenience and absolute cleanliness of everything is what I really appreciate. If you're looking for the ultimate quick getaway you won't be disapointed.
