Afterwards, take a soothing dip in the spacious hot tub, which also sits on the deck. Wind down your day with its warm, velvety water whirling around you, massaging away any stress, or head back inside to curl up by the fireplace. Listen to the crackle of a roaring fire from the living area’s comfy leather couch, or flip on the overhead fan to circulate the room’s air.
Retire to bed after winding down your full day of woodland activities. Up to two guests are accommodated in the plush king-size bed, and there’s even a lovely heart-shaped tub in the room for pre-bedtime soaks. If you bring a dog (up to two are allowed), there's just an additional pet fee.

Loved how close we were to town and Unicoe State park! Cabin had everything you'd need for a quick trip. Would definitely stay again!
Nice little cottage. Good location.
Quiet and peaceful stay at this little cabin. Nice and functional inside. Would definitely stay again.
Loved this nice cabin in the woods. It is very quite and peaceful at all times. The hot tub only had two seats of jets working, but they are on the same side, so it was perfect for just two people. The room is nice and open. Plenty of outdoor activities close to the cabin to get out and experience nature. We went horseback riding and hiked in the state park. Exactly what you are looking for if you want a nice retreat in the woods, but still want to be close enough to town to enjoy the time in Helen.

This cabin was so cute and romantic perfect a for two me and my husband enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor jacuzzi..it sits off the road and is about 10 mins to Helen plus of you like trails and fishing its within 5 mins distance as well as Anna ruby falls...just great location and beautiful little cabin.
This is a beautiful log cabin for 2 Adults. Very peaceful, quiet and romantic. Only 10 minutes to Helen, Ga.
It was very peaceful and relaxing. Nice to have the hot tub. Just wished all the jets had been working. All in all it was quite nice .
This is NOT like an AirBnB or Homeaway in that it is a fully commercial rental - not someone's home. So don't expect the personal touches you normally get in those. The cabin is right for 2 people but the screened porch needs serious cleaning, the kitchen has minimal utensils (only 1 wine glass... in wine country!??)
Bring everything you think you might want in your kitchen even including salt and pepper - it isn't there for you.
We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed. We have replaced the broken wine glasses and feel there is ample cookware/dishware provided for a home that holds two. Thank you!
Very private, cozy & surrounded by trees. Enjoyed the hot tub on the screened porch with woods all around. The area is beautiful & we took daily drives to explore all the Helen area has to offer. Didn't use the cabin for meals but appliances are in good condition & kitchen is well equipped if that's your thing. Would go again.
This cabin was perfect, it had everything we needed for our stay. I wanted to stay forever! My partner and I will definitely stay here again, a wonderful trip in the middle of the woods!
Love Vacasa! Can't imagine using anyone else! Cabins are always clean. They've added an arrival package with useful goodies in it & it all comes in a nice tote! Perfect little getaway!
There is nothing like sitting on the screened back patio listening to the woods talking and the birds singing, however the bed and pillows aren’t the most comfortable.
Nice, clean, comfortable cabin. A few minor repairs are needed. Not much parking space.
It was our 1 year anniversary and we will definitely be making this our yearly anniversary vacation spot!
My husband and I loved this cute little cabin! It was everything we were hoping and more, we loved the location and the nearby town of Helen! Going to Anna Ruby Falls was amazing and just relaxing in the hot tub was so fun! Would highly recommend!!!
The cabin was clean and worked for what we expected. It would have been nice to have a jacuzzi that worked properly. We enjoyed ourselves and the cabin was conveniently located to everything we wanted to see. Some location recommendations would have also been a nice added amenity. May not come back to this area but vacasa wears very easy to book with and very helpful with check in and out information.
The location of this cabin was nice. It is in an area with other cabins nearby. If staying in the winter be aware that the heat comes from the side of the room where the kitchen is so the bedroom area can get chilly.
We come to this area multiple times a year and have rented cabins with a few different companies. This was our first time renting with vacasa and we were so happy with the cabin and their service! The cabin was in a great location, it was the perfect size for us and our fur baby, it was very well taken care of and very clean! Could not have been happier with our stay there using vacasa! Deffinitly will be using them for now on!

Pictures in ads don't tell the real story. Seeing is believeing, but by then you've already paid upfront. Reinvest in upkeep, deliver a quality product and guests will want to come back.
My husband and I stayed in the Country Cottage for a quick weekend trip without our two young kids. We were looking for peace, quiet, and a little R&R. We are from Gwinnett County, so it was only a short drive to Sautee Nachoochee. The cabin was beautiful, clean, and the perfect size for the two of us. We LOVED the hot-tub on the back porch, the nearby waterfalls, and the little town of Helen. The simple, and low-key weekend was exactly what we needed during this busy time of year.
The general state of this cabin is old and no upgrades have been made in quite a while. Look at another cabin before you rent this one!
Was great place and friendly people!
Enjoyed our time at this cabin! Everything we hoped for! No big issues. Lights went out because of a regional issue - but was still enjoyable!!!
The cabin was nice and roomy for the 2 of us, would recommend getting new pillows, too old and hard. The foliage was really nice, going to the falls was a great experience. Downtown Helen was nice, kind of a tourist trap but the German food was good, great bakery. Plenty of things to do, in the different towns, hiking, was also good.
The first thing i noticed when pulling up to the cabin was where do i park.If you have a bigger automobile you may have trouble parking and getting it out of the road.Once inside the cabin over all was nice looking.My first real major let down was the fact the water heater was not working properly so so much for the heart shaped tub.I had to turn the shower wide open to have some warm water.With no hot water basically for anything the dishes were not cleaned good had to wash off before using.We noticed several small roaches coming out of the stove when we were using it.I will say i did call them and they assured me that they would get these problems corrected.Good luck
Would definitely stay here again! The cabin was secluded, well kept, and clean. There is plenty to do close by whether you are interested in shopping, sight-seeing, history, and/or hiking.
Have used vacasa before, like them overall. Only issue is different cabins, different owners, different ideas of cleanliness
My girlfriend and I needed a get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This cabin was great. Far enough out of the city to be peaceful but close enough to not feel like you are not a long drive from anything.
Looks like the picture. Pretty accurate. Clean for the most part would be nice if there were nicer sheets ( low thread count). 15 minutes from Helen.
Grill was nice and clean. May want to bring more towels because they give a total of 6, needed If you go in the tub or tubing in town. Also bring shampoo and conditioner they give you one of each so we had to buy more for 2 people when we went to town.
The deck was our favorite stop. Evening and morning it was so peaceful!
We enjoyed our stay in this cabin. The size of the cabin and layout were perfect for us. Sheets and towels were clean and the bed was comfortable. The cabin is darker than the pictures show, even in the middle of a sunny day....being in the trees keeps natural light down. But we didn't stay in the cabin much during the day because there are so many nice places to go in the area. We will definitely consider renting from this company again when we vacation up here.
We will be back. We had an amazing anniversary weekend here. Helen is fun but the nature is ideal. Spacious romantic get away.
LOVE these little cottages. Hot tub is always my favorite. But just being in the mountains as a getaway is truly unlike any other experience. If needed, customer service is great. Location is perfect. Will continue to stay with vacasa!
It was a very nice cottage
The cabin is very nice and cozy for 2 people. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed fro our getaway. However, there is no view :-(
This little cabin is easy to get to from Atlanta, GA and has the perfect set up for a couples weekend retreat. The dog friendly nature of this rental is perfect, and the porch complete with a hot tub makes for a great retreat. Do know that this is not a super tucked away in the middle of nowhere cabin, there are a few other cabins probably about 100 yards away through the woods. This caused us no concern at all, but probably good to know depending on what kind of cabin getaway you are looking for :)
Overall....very satisfied. Plenty of adventure in the surrounding area and the mountain views were wonderful.
My husband and I loved staying at this cozy cabin. The location was great... tucked away in the woods but still just 10 minutes from downtown Helen. It was very clean and organized, making it easy to find anything we needed. The reservation/checking in/checking out process was simple and convenient. Only minor complaint is the hot tub didn't get as hot as we'd hoped. Over all a great place to stay! We hope to be back :)
We had a fantastic time in this cabin. It was the perfect size for the two of us. The hot tub was perfect!
Great little cabin right down the road from Unicoi state park and Helen. Enjoyed being so close to the park to do some hiking and fishing. Only issue I had with the actual residence was a couple of torn screens on the back patio that were letting rain blow in.
From the moment we opened the door we were disappointed. The listing says the cabin is a one bedroom cottage. In reality it is a studio unit. We easily moved passed the size of the cabin, however, after inspecting the cabin we found many more problems.
To begin, the cabin was not clean. The oven was disgusting. There were grease stains and food particles left from previous guests. The side of the refrigerator had hard food particles as well. I spent at least 20 minutes cleaning it. In addition to the oven, the heart shaped tub was filthy (this was something we looked forward to). My husband found long blonde hairs in and around it. Considering neither of us have blonde hair, we knew it was left behind from another guest. In addition to the hair there was a film around the tub. My husband and I spent an hour trying to clean it. In addition to the tub, the patio was vert broken down and filled with leaves it. The screens were broken and coming apart in various locations (which would account for the leaves), the wood panels that were holding it together appeared to have been put up by a child or someone with very little skill. There was also a dirty ashtray (we thought it was a non-smoking unit). Also, the grill and propane tank looked as if neither had been cleaned in years.
Still trying to make the best of this situation, we tried to go inside and "enjoy" the evening. Unfortunately we were greeted by several cockroaches! While cooking we had no choice but to stand over the stove to ensure none of the roaches got into our food. We also had to shake all of our clothes before leaving.
While still trying to salvage the night, we decided to play music and play cards...unfortunately the CD player was broken....another bust. Because we could never get a WiFi signal, we also could not play music through our phones without killing our data.
We then decide to go to bed....however, after sitting on the end of the bed, we found that it would elevate, because the mattresses are on a cheap, metal frame. All of the furnishings are either outdated, damaged, dirty, or broken.
We apologize if the guest found a dirty cabin upon arrival; we were not given the opportunity to assist the guest with this disappointment and would have happily done so. The screens are in good condition as are the beds. Thank you.
Wonderful area to vacation. Helen has great places to eat and shop.
It was beautiful. We enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to go back!
Very nice property- a little closer to the neighbors than I anticipated, but very nice overall.
This property is not accurately advertised. The photos are about 5 or so years old. The screens are no longer attached to the siding.
We were really looking forward to having access to a hot tub and grill during our 2 day $500 stay. If the promised amenities were working, I could look past the cabin being 5 years older than the pictures posted online. There were old grills that had been tossed underneath the deck and it looked trashy and nasty. The grill that was there was rusted and unusable. The hot tub had been improperly cleaned and the chemicals were not being properly filtered which gave off an unpleasant odor. The hot tub was also not heating up to the 104 degrees, as stated on the paperwork at the cottage.
I called Vacasa when we arrived and the following day about these issues and none were resolved. I can't blame them when their help line is located in Portland OR and I am in Helen, GA.
On the bright side, the home does have nice lighting and the fire place is very cozy. The home was just very overpriced for what you receive. If you want a warm place to stay with a bath tub, maybe $125 for the weekend.
I will not be staying here again.
We are disappointed to see that this guest did not have a better experience. These cabins are new under Vacasa management and so the pictures are all recent (September 2016). The hot tub was fixed during this guest's stay; we are sorry to see that they did not have an opportunity to use it after this was done. The grill is regularly scraped clean by housekeeping, but we will be getting a new grill for the home in the near future.
Great experience and perfect for pets!
From the moment you arrive you feel as though you are deep in the Appalachains. The privacy is very good between the other cabins. The view is spectacular! The cabin is small but roomy. It is quaint and absolutely clean. Surprisingly, the AC/Heater unit heats and cools the cabin VERY quickly. We had the best sleep in the cabin. Very comfortable. It is a PERFECT getaway for couples, two or three friends, and someone who wants to get away to be by themselves. It's a perfect place to write! With only a 12 minute drive to Helen, this cabin is WELL worth what it costs. I highly recommend it!
Price and location is great! Check in is hassel free.
We had a great stay. The cabin had all the kitchen needs. The hotub worked. Getting it to turn off is a special step but it works. The wifi was excellent also. We walked the surrounding area to see the cabins sites and mountain ridges. Beautiful. The people were really friendly. My only thing is the bed needs to be replaced. No reason I should feel the springs. And firmer or larger or more pillows.
The cabin was great and easy to find. Very comfy and cozy. The hot tub was great and relaxing. We went during Oktoberfest which was great. Good location and quiet.
If you are looking to get away for peace and quiet, this would be a great location. I honestly did not want to leave but I'll return next year. Perhaps stay a little longer.
