Secluded, dog-friendly cabin - screened-in deck w/ hot tub plus in-room Jacuzzi
Escape to the Blue Ridge Mountains for a little R & R in this cozy, dog-friendly cabin for two with covered, private hot tub, in-room Jacuzzi, seasonal wood-burning fireplace, and pool table!
Located less than 30 miles south of the North Carolina border, this semi-secluded Sautee Nacoochee home is only 12 miles from the waters of Lake Burton, a man-made reservoir off the Tallulah River where you can fish, picnic, swim, or maybe even time your visit to enjoy the spectacular Lake Burton Fourth of July fireworks show. This an annual tradition dates back to 1975 and is a display that can really only be enjoyed from aboard a boat upon the water!
Step inside this cozy cabin and soak in the rich, woodsy features and accents from the polished floors, to the paneled walls, to the exposed beamed ceilings above.
The great room houses the living room, kitchen and even the bedroom, making this an ideal, single story home for visitors with mobility issues. The living area offers a plush, leather sofa, and a warming, seasonal, wood-burning fireplace.
Rack up the balls and challenge one another to a friendly game of pool, or sit at the table for two and play a card game or enjoy a little something prepared in the nearby kitchen.
The full, well-equipped kitchen has everything one might need to prepare anything from a cup of morning java to a full course meal including a fridge, stove, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker, and even a dishwasher to help you get a handle on those dirty dishes.
Step through the double doors and out onto your covered, screened-in deck with an additional table and chairs, gas barbecue, and private hot tub, perfect for those steamy Georgia summer nights.
The romantic bedroom has a large, comfortable king-sized bed for two and an in-room, corner style Jacuzzi. There's also a full bathroom with a shower close by. And with an additional set of double doors leading out to the deck, you can swing them open and sleep to the sounds and smells of the surrounding forest.
WiFi is provided in the home and there's also a flat screen TV to let you catch up on your shows and movies and a stereo to let you fill the cabin with your favorite tunes during your stay. And note that your well-behaved dog (up to two are allowed) is welcome to join you for a nightly pet fee.
Head over to the delightful Bavarian alpine town of Helen (about six miles away) where you can wine, dine, shop, and see the sights from a horse-drawn carriage, only four miles away.
If you're looking for a little high-energy excitement on the water, head down the Chattahoochee River aboard a raft or in a tube, or see it all dangling from a zipline above the trees. Both adventures are accessible from companies in Helen or in some of the nearby park areas.
Book this cabin today and surprise your significant other with the promise of a romantic getaway to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

I was nervous after reading the reviews that said it wasn't secluded BUT it was perfect! This cabin is the last one at the end of the road and was the perfect size for my boyfriend and I and our dog. Beautiful scenery all around you while in the hot tub. Perfect distance from downtown Helen. I would stay here again.
This is the third cabin like this that we've stayed in and while it was nice overall, there were definitely a couple things that we didn't like as much. Most glaringly, this "secluded" cabin was very close to two different neighbors. I will say there is a substantial amount of vegetation which helped a great deal, but it didn't feel as "private" as we would've hoped.
Also, it seemed this cabin had more issues with humidity than the other two. Our very first night we noticed moisture was condensing on the rafters and dripping onto us and anything else along both sides of the cabin. This didn't seem to be a problem the rest of the time (the first night was cooler than the rest), but I did notice a slight mildew smell on the pillows.
Otherwise, everything else met our expectations. There's a strange dip in the floor at the front of the cabin, but we didn't slide off the mountain at any point so no big deal. The hot tub cover has definitely seen better days, but it still functions. Memory foam mattress was nice. TV had impressive sound. Pool table was a fun bonus. Overall a good value.
We loved Islewild! It was the perfect location for our short stay; a short drive from Unicoi State Park hiking trails, Anna Ruby Falls and of course the city of Helen. The cabin was beautiful and clean and in a nice quiet location.
It was so cute and clean. Just what we needed to get away!
She loved every outlook of this place. Definently going back as soon as possible
The location was great. Close to Helen GA, the Unicoi State park and surrounding historic areas.
The cabin was nice. The pool table and jacuzzi were fun extras.
The cabin was the last one so it was very private and peaceful.
We enjoyed the hot tub , jacuzzi and playing pool.
We will definitely come back!!
Fair price but needs work on the cabin, Thank you for being pet friendly. Remove the pool table, it's not usable anyways. The Bed was horrible, hard, creaky, yucky, pillows were gross & need replaced. The cabin was clean as a maid view point but a person could see where the cabin is being ignored from maintenance and grounds keeping, too many to list. Loved the hot tub, kept kicking off & the cover is degrading into the hot tub. Where's the washer & dryer? When driving up the road the directional sign is missing the cabin #. The cabin is hidden on a dead end road behind another cabin. We drove in circles, trying every road driving past other cabins to find it. Fry pan needs replaced, flaking into food & dangerous.
We appreciate this feedback! We are currently working with the homeowner to try and get this cabin some upgrades. The pool table is smaller than a standard pool table and in usable condition. The hot tub will kick off regularly when in economy mode, and these little studio cabins do not come with washer and dryers. We have made signs helping guests to identify where the cabin is and apologize for the struggles our guest had in locating the cabin. We bought new frying pans for the cabin as well. Thank you!
We had a wonderful time. The house was nice, quiet and clean. I cannot wait to go back :)
This cabin is suitable for a couple. Very small but perfect for a romantic getaway. The location is 10 minutes from Helen as qell as the waterfalls.
We love the cabin. It was very peaceful and private. Just the right size for a couple
Close to everything and quite. Very comfortable and everything worked.
We had a great time staying in Helen. I loved it just had an issue with the bed being so squeaky. But for the most part the time was fun.
Beautiful cabin. We loved the hot tub. It was a very private, great weekend.❤
This cabin was very nice, had everything we needed, very quiet, comfortable, relaxing, private, and close to all of the surrounding attractions.
Canon is in a nice quiet area. Had an enjoyable stay!
My husband and I wanted a few days away, and this was the perfect treat. Helen was close enough that we could go into town if we wanted, but the cabin felt nice and secluded.
It was great. The location is perfect.
Have stayed in these cabins quite a few times, working with Vacasa was a great experience, very helpful. We have stayed many times in these cabins and have always enjoyed our stay.
However I would not reccommend this cabin as the owner needs to do upgrading. Decor was dull and uninviting, kitchen not very well stocked, bed very uncomfortable and "crunchy". No coffee table and dining table very small, but has a large pool table in middle of kitchen?
As the home only fits two people we feel the kitchen is appropriately stocked, and the dining table is an appropriate size. A lot of guests love renting this home because of the pool table. We hope it was enjoyed!
Check in time is at 4pm and chrck out time is 11am. Just not enough time for the money you pay to stay.
My husband and I absolutely loved our stay in this cabin and can't wait to go back! It felt private even though other cabins were close-by, and it wasn't far from all the attractions that Helen has to offer. We loved the hardwood floors, fireplace and jacuzzi tubs, screened in back porch and pool table. The fact that the TV will swivel so you can watch from the living room or from in bed was a nice feature! They also had detailed instructions for the jacuzzi tubs and fireplace which were helpful. We can't Wait to come back!
We loved the location of the cabin, it's quiet and serene. Very short drive to Helen. The pictures are just as you will find it, very clean. No surprises! The bed is a bit squeaky when getting out or slightly moving around but it's still comfortable. Since its at the end of a driveway no cars passing by which is nice. Had a scary moment in the middle of the night when pine cones or something kept falling from the trees onto the roof which is startling when you are asleep but not a complaint, just a little warning. We would return and loved our stay!
My husband and I used vacasa for a cabin rental. The price was was great, the place was clean and exactly what we were looking for. It was the perfect weekend away.
I am a nurse and my long time boyfriend is a firefighter. This vacation and cabin rental was the perfect escape from our busy and stressful lives. Thank you for providing such a beautiful, quiet, and homely cabin. We loved it and will definitely be using Vacasa for all future rentals.
We like this area, very close to Helen, with activities and Unicoi Park , yet back in the woods.
The view is spectacular! Very clean and had everything we needed.
This property is a great place for a relaxing weekend trip.
Really enjoyed this weekend getaway. Very close to Helen and all the great food and sights. Anna Ruby falls is worth the time and brief hike. Cabin has basic dishes, pots, pans and utensils. If you like to cook bring some pantry basics. Other cabins are near and had guests but we never heard them.
Nice cabin. Has everything a couple could want except washer and dryer. Will visit again
Nice cabin with everything a couple needs to relax and enjoy each other!
I PLAN ON RETURNING IN THE NEARBY FUTURE.
My husband and I stayed for three nights. We fell in love all over again! (we have, and have always had an amazing relationship). We took this time to enjoy just each other, without any worry for "adulting." It was truly an amazing stay and we plan on using these cabins again and again for years to come!
DO NOT STAY HERE, the bed has bed bugs and I have bites all over my body! Not happy at all!
Nice quiet stay for any couple
Cabin exactly as pictured. We had a wonderful, private time.
We enjoyed our stay, definitely would stay again. Neighbors were close by but you couldn't tell they were there. Loved the privacy and seclusion. Definitely must needed. Can't wait to visit again!
We haven't stopped talking about how much fun we had..thank you
