With room for up to five guests, this charming and dog-friendly Sautee Nacoochee cabin in the woods includes a pool table, wood-burning fireplace, screened-in, covered deck with hot tub, and firepit.
Located just 30 miles south of the North Carolina border and 30 miles west of the South Carolina border, this two-bedroom home is tucked away in a secluded section of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The quaint Bavarian alpine town of Helen, where you can window shop and dine in some of the area's best restaurants, is just four miles away. And for those eager to explore the surrounding forests, there are numerous trailheads throughout the area for both hiking and biking.
Warm, welcoming, and very inviting, this home sports rich, glowing wooden floors, and walls, but still offers plenty of 21st century conveniences throughout.
The front door opens to a great room shared by a kitchen, dining area, and living space. The living area has luxurious leather furniture and a seasonal, wood-burning fireplace. Adjacent, there's a pool table and a tall high top table with two stools for drinks, socializing, or a place to sit and chalk up your pool cue for your next turn.
Alongside the pool table, there's a full, well-equipped kitchen with a whole host of accessories, utensils, and appliances including a refrigerator, stove, microwave oven, coffeemaker, and a dishwasher to help you keep things tidy during your stay. And with the gas grill (and additional charcoal grill) out back, you can easily prepare a variety of barbecued delights and enjoy them at the kitchen table for four.
Also right outside, there's a screened-in, covered back deck with a table and four chairs plus a hot tub, ideal for soaking your trail-weary muscles to the soothing sounds of the surrounding forest.
Both bedrooms are conveniently located right off the great room. The master suite has a king, four-poster log bed and a full bathroom with tub and shower, while the second bedroom has a queen log bed and a full bath. There is also an additional twin rollaway bed available allowing you to comfortably accommodate up to five lucky guests. Note that your well-behaved dog (up to three are allowed) is welcome to join you during your stay for a daily fee.
A recently added private washer/dryer will help you stay on top of your laundry, so feel free to bring the smaller suitcases this time around. For additional home entertainment options, WiFi is provided to let you share pics and videos with friends and family online, and there are three TVs with DVD players and Netflix streaming including a large, 47-inch flatscreen TV in the living room. And with the firepit out back, remember to pack some marshmallows!
Climb aboard a raft or settle in a tube and take a trip down the Chattahoochee River that winds right through Helen. Or consider racing across the treetops from a zipline (a few of which offer breathtaking views right over the river). You can take a short two mile trip west to Unicoi Lake with its 12 miles of nature and hiking trails, plus fishing, swimming, canoe rentals, and lakeside picnic facilities.
If you're craving an escape to the forests and mountains of Georgia, where the only sounds you'll hear outside your home will be birdsong and the wind in the trees, book this delightful cabin today and start planning for that next Appalachian getaway. A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.
You must be 21 years or older to rent this property.

Nice cabin but desperately needs updating
Hi, Peter! Thank you for choosing our home. We appreciate your feedback and confirm some items in the cabin will be updated. We look forward to hosting you again!
Jimmy M.Dec 2020
Great cabin was however surprised that for the price paid we had to carry our own trash to the Vacasa office upon departure. Especially when there is a cleaning fee!
james m.Nov 2020
"What we loved" ha ha! Well it was warm and dry; that's about it. This property has been severely neglected. The driveway has very large sections missing and you could see where a previous renter had bottomed out and gotten stuck. Yes I do realize it is in a mountainous region and a rough driveway will happen but this is just pure owner neglect. The hand soap was watered down so bad that we went to the store and purchased our own to use. We are in a pandemic and the housekeepers or owners are watering down the soap. Yes we did take our with us when we left. The hot tub pump motor that keeps the water circulating continuously was so loud we turned the power off to be able to hear the tv and get to sleep. The floor mats were on the sitting bench on the front porch and not actually on the floor where they are intended. The eating utensils had been cleaned but barely enough of them to accommodate a party of 6 or more people. The wine glasses were plastic so if you like your wine from a real glass bring your own. This property cost us over $500 per night and we are very disappointed with what the end result is and was. This was our 1st and last booking with Vacasa.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, James. We apologize that your experience in our home was not the vacation for which you had planned and for which we strive to provide our guests. Thank you for bringing the maintenance deficiencies to our attention so we can address them appropriately and make needed repairs to ensure that everything is operational. We confirm the driveway has been worked and gravel was added for our guest's comfort, and the hot tub is in working order. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Keri H.Nov 2020
This is our second time staying in this cabin. We really enjoyed it.
Scott C.Oct 2020
Overall fine though beds are worn down, dishwasher works so poorly we hand washed, microwave has cracks. Fair amount of dust throughout. First time using VRBO we have been charged with a 175 booking fee. Overall over priced
Thank you for your review, Scott! We will advise the homeowner of your concerns with the appliances and will ask housekeeping to be more mindful with dusting. We hope to see you again!
Holly C.Aug 2020
My husband and reserved lazy acres for a quick weekend retreat. We arrived to the cabin at 330 pm and found one bed was unmade, a cigarette in the kitchen chair, and dog food in the kitchen. Obviously, the cabin had not been cleaned so I contacted vacasa and informed an agent of the situation. She assured us the local property office would contact us soon. We waited 45 minutes for a call back with no response. I called back again, spoke to another agent who said she would contact the local office asap. We waited another 41 minutes for the call to let us know the cabin was ready. We returned to the cabin, unpacked, enjoyed the hot tub, and came in to shower to find the previous guest’s used shower loofa hanging on the shower curtain hooks inside the shower.
This is our fist time using Vacasa properties. The cabin’s location is great, and the cabin itself along with the furnishings are very nice. However, as a healthcare provider and in light of the pandemic at hand, I am definitely disappointed in the cleaning situation. The left behind used toiletry item and the cabin still being dirty 30 minutes prior to check in time, makes me wonder how well the cabin was cleaned. Hopefully, everything was just an oversight.
Also, the driveway pavement has crumbled off both side down to a narrow strip, and there is a big hornet nest on the front porch eve.
Hi, Holly! We are so sorry you had to deal with a late and rushed clean due to a hectic schedule that day; we will look at how we can prevent this in the future so our guests feel safe staying with us during the pandemic. The hornet's nest has been removed, and we are looking into driveway repair options. Thank you!
Lorraine J.Aug 2020

Josh P.Jul 2020
First time to Helen, GA and our stay here was fantastic thanks to the comforts of this cozy, private cabin that’s conveniently located to the downtown area and attractions. Comfortable place that was fully equipped with everything you need including pool table, hot tub and fire pit. This was a perfect stop on our way to Florida from Ohio. Highly recommend this cabin. We loved it!
Andrea S.Jun 2020
Hot tub was great. Support was great. We called mid week to get the hot tub treated and they sent someone right over. Easy to access. Only complaint would be having to drive our trash almost 3 miles to a dumpster. We didn’t drive a truck and I hate hauling garbage in my car. Other than that, it was great.
Babajide A.May 2020
We had an amazing time at the cabin. Everything was as it was described. Wish the weather was a little better but we enjoyed our stay and will definitely visit again
Jennifer M.May 2020
This is a precious little cabin. It's quiet and cozy. Perfect for a romantic weekend get away or small family vacation. Thanks for the stay!
Mike C.Mar 2020
We enjoyed this cozy beauty! It was close to many hiking places we took our kids to, and the kitchen was fully furnished so we cooked all meals there! (Need a can opener and two cup measuring cup). The backyard has a fire pit and chairs. The cabin and hot tub were very clean. We will love to go back at another time when we are able to explore Helen GA and Highlands NC. We would love to book again! Thanks!
Jesse C.Mar 2020
The place was super clean, comfortable and the pool table and hot tub were both great. Will definitely go again.
Cheyenne M.Mar 2020
The cabin was just what we expected. Clean, well stocked, and close to downtown Helen. The driveway was a little steeper than expected but was easy to navigate once we got used to it. We will definitely consider staying here again!
Shari M.Feb 2020
The cabin was very cozy, clean and close to everything we wanted to do! We will definitely rent again!
Jeffrey A.Jan 2020
Hot tub, nicely decorated, convenient to Helen
Edythe R.Dec 2019
Just the basics and a little too close to the road for me because I can hear the cars but other than that it had everything that you would need nice bedrooms and Furniture in the bedroom
Harry H.Dec 2019
King bed was nice. Pretty comfortable. Nice kitchen and enclosed porch, along with a wood burning fireplace.
Pamela H.Sep 2019
What a delightful place to stay!
Made an evacuation fun!!
Oma B.Jun 2019
We stayed so busy during the day that it was nice to come home each evening and not leave again. It rained several days and we came home and got in the hot tub to warm up. We cooked, played pool, and watched tv at night. It was close enough to Helen and all the waterfalls. Thanks for a great stay!
Andrew V.Jun 2019
The house was quiet, relaxing, enjoyable and everything else we had hoped for. If you’re looking for a private get away then this is the rental home for you. Everything was clean and well appointed. Thank you for a great stay.
Robyn B.Jun 2019
Our family enjoyed your home for the weekend of the Helen Balloon Festival. We were close to activities, yet far enough away to feel like we were in a private retreat. The hot tub was a great place to relax and the kids enjoyed the pool table and TV.
Jill D.Apr 2019
House was great. Easy to find, clean and perfect for our family of four.
James R.Mar 2019
I loved that the cabin was not near others it felt as if you had the whole area to yourself. extremely relaxing and the pool table was just another perk.
Colby W.Mar 2019
The cabin was clean, and equipped with everything needed, very spacious...
Rhonda C.Feb 2019
Wonderful place to stay!!!
Kim W.Jan 2019
Loved the place and location we were up here for the Unicoi Call Makers Show and it was in very good location
Yunia G.Jan 2019
We loved our stay in Lazy Acres, from the easy check in and instructions to the location and convenience of every little thing that we needed. It was rainy all days that we were in the cabin; yet it's so well located that you could go around and find leisure in Helen within a relatively short drive. The billiards' table, the jacuzzi, the cozy couches and the Netflix subscription made it all perfect. Loved the decorations, the bedrooms' tvs and having the washer and dryer available was a super add on. We will definitely be back!
KESHIA K.Dec 2018
I enjoyed this lovely home , the rooms were spacious , the bathrooms wre clean . When you walk outside you have the Jacuzzi and grill and table set and fire pit . Of course we made smores . One night we went to the shopping center they had. This is the perfect place to relax.
Samuel O.Dec 2018
This is a nice secluded cabin that is very clean and well maintained.
Toya A.Dec 2018
Great stay! My sons loved the experience. We will return soon!
Robert Y.Nov 2018
Enjoyed our stay nice secluded cabin well equipped
Cyndy S.Nov 2018
We stayed at Lazy Acres cabin 11/16-18, 2018. We found it to be comfortably furnished and charmingly decorated with rustic decor. The heating system worked great (it was pretty cold there at night!), and the appliances all functioned properly. We enjoyed sitting on the porches listening to the birds and the wind in the trees.
There were two things that we found to be troublesome. Where the driveway led to the road there was a sharp dip that caused our car to scrape the pavement. A vehicle with a lower clearance would have a very hard time going in and out. Also, the house numbers on the post by the driveway were hard to make out in the daylight - it would have been impossible to see them at night.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Lazy Acres and would recommend it to our friends.
Kristina B.Oct 2018
The cabin is nice & the location is quiet.
Carolyn F.Oct 2018
Lazy Acres Cabin was just the right size for our family (3 plus our dog) to enjoy a vacation that turned into an evacuation from Hurricane Michael. We were so happy to be in a safe place that was also comfortable and provided everything we needed while we waited out the storm. The location is just close enough to Helen to easily go into town for the day, but far enough to not be in the middle of the Oktoberfest activities.
Jennifer B.Sep 2018
Location good and ample parking. Had a miserable time because sofa and loveseat are horrible. We watched football together but sitting on kitchen chairs then spent time apart in our bed rooms to sit on bed to watch the Sunday games. Won't ever stay in Lazy Acres again. It's impossible to be "lazy" when you can't get comfortable on the furniture. We've stayed in cabins in Helen at least twice a year for the last 12 years and have never experienced such discomfort. I was actually ready to leave before Monday morning.
We are sorry to see these guests were so uncomfortable. We have not had other complaints about these furnishings, but we will keep our ears open.
Amanda M.Aug 2018
couples weekend. great place to stay, very relaxing. not far into town of helen ga
siobhan w.Jul 2018
Loved the cabin just right size for 4 people.
marissa w.Jul 2018
The cabin is very dark inside even with all lights on the cabin isn't as bright as it is in the picture. Other than that the cabin was in a great location and very cozy! Very easy getting into our cabin and we had an amazing time in the secluded cabin. Thanks!
Kimberly B.Jul 2018
This cozy cabin provides a relaxing retreat with the convenience of local attractions. Neat and clean.
Patty P.Jul 2018
several big reasons we will not stay there again, steep driveway ,mattress needs replaced easily felt springs
We apologize if the steep driveway was difficult for our guest. This is the nature of most our driveways in the area due to being in the mountains. The owners were just staying in the cabin and felt the mattress was comfortable, so we will not be replacing it at this time. Thank you!
Chuck G.Jul 2018
Very quite and on the main road.
Patricia J.Jul 2018
Took a long weekend off work to visit Helen. We only left the cabin once to go tubing. We just sat in the hot tub and roasted hot dogs at the fire pit. We will go back and tour the town of Helen soon. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Christine R.Jul 2018
The cabin was very charming and exactly as the pictures show. Very quiet and private.
Megan H.Jul 2018
The cabin is as nice in person as the pictures look. Check in was easy. The cabin is close to Helen GA but far enough away to get some tranquility. Highly recommend a stay there!!!
Alesia G.Jun 2018
I loved how nice and clean the cabin was. Nice location wasn't hard to get up and down. Just the right space.
Darrell C.May 2018
I liked the location. The cabin is a great base to explore the area.
Ignacio A M.May 2018
We loved the location, great amenities, nice & cozy. Pet friendly is awesome. Close to atractions, the Helen Main Street stores, gas stations, grocery store and restaurants; as well as national parks and other local historic landmarks.
Janshay P.May 2018
The cottage was exactly like the pictures. The only thing that is hard to tell is how close everything in house was but for the group, it made it quaint. The rooms are spacious! The king size bed was comfortable. Did not sleep in the other bedroom but guest with me stated that it was comfortable. The pool table is just as other reviews stated, but this was not the focus of the trip. We played on it for about 30 minutes total since there was much more to do. The jacuzzi was amazing. The temperature was just right, the jets were perfectly strong; makes me want to get one for myself! The fire pit was perfect. You could see the roof of the neighbors. If they were really loud you could hear them; for the most part, it felt like you were in a world away from everything. Helen is a short 10-15 minute drive with much to do in the area. Finding the driveway was a bit strange but once I knew where the turn was . . .too easy to get back there. I would hands-down, absolutely rent this cabin again. If there are others that are this pleasant, I have found a new way to enjoy vacations.
Grace D.Mar 2018
Our family of three loved this cabin! It was very comfortable and clean! The owners have decorated it very nicely! The hot tub was great! We'd love to stay here again!!
Sergio R.Mar 2018
The cabin was clean and inviting, great location, tons to do. Will definitely come back again for our anniversary!
Rachel C.Feb 2018
Nice Cozy Cabin for a weekend getaway.
Paul B.Feb 2018
We enjoyed staying there it was nice and quiet good location
Ian C.Jan 2018
We loved the cabin. It was great for two people, but could sleep two couples comfortably. The location was excellent! It was about a 6 mile drive in to Helen. So just far enough away, but close enough to enjoy what Helen has to offer. We will definitely come back and will bring another couple to enjoy the fun!
Holly B.Jan 2018
Adorable cabin. Great hot tub. Pool table needs to be replaced asap, did not meet expectations, unfortunately. Beautiful location. Very private. 10 mins from Helen, GA.
Stephen F.Nov 2017
We would stay here again. The cabin was nice and guiet
Rachelle J.Nov 2017
Fantastic place to stay other than the pool table
Eugene M.Oct 2017
My wife and I have stayed in a cabin for several years and always had a great experience. This is our first time renting with Vacasa, and the experience was great! We will definitely recomend them to our friends!
Donna F.Oct 2017

JD R.Sep 2017
Our family loved this place and we will def be back!
Samantha S.Aug 2017
This place is perfect for a small group of friends, 2 couples, or a family. Everything about the location is nice not to far from helen, winery's, great hiking, and food. I would highly recommend this cabin! We had one small problem and they were quick to help and fix it!
Billy G.Aug 2017
This cabin was just what I was looking for - quiet - in the middle of the woods - no other cabins in sight - yet easy to get to. We would definitely use it again.
** Please send me info on 3/4/5 bedroom cabins in the area for future use with our family.
Teresa R.Aug 2017
It was a perfect place to get to Helen from. I'm not a big fan of the big screen TV...takes away from the rustic retreat atmosphere, and yes, the pool table surface is wonky, making the game less enjoyable. Everything inside was clean and modern, except the can opener. Loved the hot tub and screened in porch. No opportunity to take walks around the place, but Unicoi State Park is so handy, it wasn't a big deal
Fendy L.Jul 2017
Mailbox was broken so we passed the house and had to rely on GPS.
When we arrived to the home and unloaded everything into the house, electricity went out. It was thunder storming that day. Due to poor cell service, we were unable to contact the staff. Power was out for 1-2 hours.
Overall, this place is good enough. The décor of this place was filled with coca cola, roosters, bears, and fishing theme. A bit busy but it was cute and gave this cabin some character. The Jacuzzi was the highlight of this cabin including the enclosed sun room. We really appreciate that this place is pet friendly. The washer and dryer was a plus.
This cabin had some privacy and no mountain view, but location was good. Cabin is 10 minutes away from Helen and near national parks.
-Bathroom has urine stain smell
-Kitchenware were dirty and needed to wash everything before use.
-Dishwasher is moldy
-Pool table is uneven, couldn't play.
-Have to take out trash and bring to dumpster at the rental office
-Bed is old; you can feel the springs.
-Bathroom essentials provided
-Space is enough for 4-6 people
-Jacuzzi is nice
-Enclosed sunroom (help prevent bugs!)
-10 minutes away from Helen
-WIFI connection is great
- Near national parks
-Sofas were comfy
-Washer & dryer
We are sorry to see there were any cons with this stay. The house has been thoroughly cleaned so all cleaning issues are taken care of, and the pool table has been checked. Thanks!
Diana B.Jun 2017
We've been coming to Helen for 13 yrs and are never disappointed. Great town. Lovely cabin with great amenities.
Ronald C.Jun 2017
We loved the place, quiet and secluded. Very comfortable and the hot tub is a must !!
Tujuana C.Apr 2017
Let me start with the couple good things. The cabin looked just like it did in the photos and it was nice and clean upon arrival. Besides that I had so many complaints. Location was not good. There was no where to walk around outside and we could see cars from the front door. Also, the iron was shoddy and the dishwasher looked old and rusted. However, the biggest let down by far was the fact that we couldn't play pool our entire stay. The table was on an uneven surface so the balls would not stay put. Very disappointing indeed!!!
We apologize for any disappointments this guest experienced during their reservation. There are wooded areas around the cabin that guests are welcome to walk in, and there are trails within five miles of the cabin at Unicoi State Park. We have replaced the iron, and we have found the dishwasher to be in good condition without any signs of rust inside or out. The Property Manager checked the pool table with a level and found it to be level as well as the floors. Thank you!
Briana M.Apr 2017
We enjoyed our stay and the location of this cabin, however, we were very disappointed with the pool table being warped. That was one of our deciding factors on choosing which cabin to stay in as well as the hot tub. Please fix the table or replace it if you are going to advertise the fact that you have this feature. Also, the pool cues are warped. It was a letdown to us considering when we first arrived and got unpacked, the first thing we wanted to do was play pool. For the cost of the stay, all features should be well maintained
We are sorry to see this guest was so disappointed by the pool table. It is supplied for fun and is not of the caliber serious pool players would need. The pool cues are regularly inspected and replaced when necessary.
Dena M.Apr 2017
Loved the welcoming, warm feeling upon entering Lazy Acres! It is a warm and cozy cabin, perfect for a two couple weekend or a small family getaway. We enjoyed the solitude and quiet in our little slice of paradise. If we visit the area again you can be sure this cabin will be on the top of our list.
Olivia R.Mar 2017
The cabin had a very cozy feeling. It was very clean and had everything we could have possibly needed. This is the perfect spot for a romantic weekend!!

We were looking for comfort, relaxation and beautiful scenery.......we were not disappointed. Lazy Acres cabin is adorable and very well maintained. We will definitely be back!!
Tracy C.Oct 2016
My wife and I have stayed in the Helen area every year during Oktoberfest and this year we needed a larger cabin since we had our two daughters and son-in-law along. I guess we should have spent a few extra dollars and stayed at our normal place. Lesson learned.
