Clean!!!! Really clean!!! Nice, fresh, remodel. We have generally gotten dark, dank wood cabins.
A couple of comfortable chairs by the fire pit and it’s perfect!!!
Courtney S.Nov 2021
The perfect relaxing quiet place for a few day's away to destress. The surroundings we're gorgeous and I loved that we could sit and hear the creek. The house itself was clean, well put together and updated. Only complaint is no instructions for trash removal, we ran it to the Vacasa dumpsters before leaving just to be safe. Will visit again for sure!
Ryan P.Oct 2021
Great place to stay for a couples getaway. Sitting in the hot tub listening to the creek was very relaxing. House is close to great hiking and only a couple miles from town for restaurants. Highly recommended
Sherry F.Aug 2021
Loved sitting on the back deck listening the creek
mark c.Aug 2021
Our second stay here and it was wonderful. Tuck away yet close to town .
Mark A.Jul 2021
Cabin was great close enough to Helen to be convenient to shops and restaurants and secluded enough to get relax and rest when you wanted.
Nicole W.Jun 2021
We have enjoyed our trip so much!!! The place was really clean and home just as pictured, only thing that looked different was that the back wasn’t as clear by the river as the pictures but the girls still enjoyed playing in the river. The beds were super comfy and felt like home. It was really to downtown Helen and close to Helen Tubing which was amazing! We loved Betty’s Country store and kitchen they had EVERYTHING we needed for cooking in and relaxing.
We can’t wait to come back!
Overall we give this place a 5 star
Crystal C.Jun 2021
This cute, peaceful little cabin was perfect for our mini vacay with our furbabies. The cabin is secluded enough if you have barkers like we do. The small creek that runs thru the back yard can be seen and heard from the back porch. It's a short drive to the town of Helen and every where is pretty much dog friendly. However, some places are only open Thursday - Sunday.
kristen m.May 2021
If you want to be secluded this is the place for you. The little creek is nice to hear while one sits on the back porch. I enjoyed the swing on the front porch . The hot tub was a great bonus to have to be able to relax. This place is very pet friendly. The inside was clean. The location is perfect for all the lovely places to visit in the area.
Trevor R.May 2021
Need a second night stand & lamp in the main bedroom. Otherwise, outstanding !!!
Olga C.May 2021
This is a nice house, good location.
the cable was not working but we called and they repaired it quickly.
The furniture was dusty pretty much everywhere, blinds dusty, lamps in bathroom, floor dusty, stained kitchen cabinets, this house need a deep clean asap attention to details.

The quaint little cabin was warm and cozy! We enjoyed the stay very much!
Morgan M.Dec 2020
We loved everything about this home! It was super clean, had everything we needed, and very secluded, but also very close to town. The shower was one of our fav parts lol it’s massive. The driveway is very tight and there are some deep holes so I wouldn’t recommend driving a car or a large truck to stay here! We drove my Subaru Outback and it was the perfect size. The only “issue” we had was that there isn’t a hard top cover on the hot tub so it doesn’t stay warm as the outside temp drops. But, that wasn’t a major issue, it still heated up nicely most the time. Oh, and we couldn’t figure out how to make the fireplace work. I’m sure that could be resolved with a phone call, we just didn’t care that much. 10/10. We loved this place.
Hello Morgan, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize for the issues you had during the stay. The cover is a thermal cover that lays on top of the water to keep it heated. The fireplace does work, and we have ask the manager to provide instructions in the home. We apologize for the inconvenience and frustrations. We hope we have the chance to host you again in the future.
Claire G.Nov 2020
Cabin is well located with a short distance to Helen but in an oasis of peace. The hot tub was great and the home was comfortable for our group of three.
Lauren J.Nov 2020
We loved this little house it had just enough room for us and our dogs. The backyard creek is beautiful and so private! We loved the updates they have done to the house and the location was super close to everything we did.
Silvia C.Nov 2020
We had a great time here. It is very hidden so just be sure to read all signs on the driveways. We had a few issues but Vacasa always provides the best service. Thankyou for a great bday getaway.
James o.Nov 2020
The photos of the updated cabin where accurate however did not donut justice. The home was extremely clean and inviting. It was totally secluded away from everything however still close enough to town.
I would higher recommend this home for your vacation needs. TOTALLY relaxing!!!
Kerri P.Sep 2020
Very cute house recently remodeled. Close to Helen but very secluded also. Great for a relaxing and quiet weekend.
Yaritza S.Aug 2020
The perfect cabin for the perfect getaway. Beautiful cabin with an awesome creek just steps away. Helen was amazing and this cabin is in the perfect location. Can’t wait to come back!
Tiffany D.Aug 2020
Super clean, comfortable beds, nicely updated and loved hearing the creek from the back deck! A little hard to find (definitely print your directions because we had zero signal the whole time) but convenient to town and tons of privacy!!
Ilde C.Jul 2020
Lovely cottage. Secluded- feels like camping but with all the comforts of home. Extremely close to Helen GA and all the tubing options.
Julia N.Jul 2020
This cabin was amazing. The inside is awesome and the running creek in the back is the heaven. A very short ride to Helen, then a quick ride back to serenity and seclusion. A must !!
Denise H.Jul 2020
The cabin was so nice, just like the photos. It was a little small for 5 people. Would be perfect for 4. The running creek behind was peaceful and the front porch swing was a nice addition. We hope to go back one day!
Herbert S.Jun 2020
We loved this property for the great modern feel, the seclusion and a babbling creek right off the back. Loved the jacuzzi and modern bathroom. Easy, quick drive into town and all the attractions. Can’t wait to book it again!
Kelvin D.May 2020
Adorable cabin. Exactly like the pictures. Clean. Cozy. Private. Just a few minutes from Helen. Perfect for a couples getaway.
Patricia C.Mar 2020
Ideal for 2 people. Convenient to town but isolated.
Dan S.Mar 2020
Recently renovated and clean; private location nicely located near Helen, GA
Willie F.Feb 2020
This was out first visit to a cabin and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. The privacy was perfect and the cabin comfort was a total surprise. We loved the interior. And not being to far from Helen was great. We will definitely return for another vacation.
lauren a.Feb 2020
I loved the cabin it was very homey and clean and I could definitely tell it had been recently updated. The beds were vey comfortable and everything was easy to access including WiFi and hot tub.
Angelina M.Dec 2019
Laurel Creek Cabin was the perfect weekend getaway! The sounds of the creek were so relaxing. The hot tub was the perfect touch to enjoy the cold nights. You get the best of both worlds - secluded enough that you don’t have to worry about disturbing the neighbors (or being disturbed) but also close enough to Helen to enjoy the town and get back to the house without a long drive. We will definitely be back!
Nathan T.Oct 2019
The back deck and yard were perfect spots for relaxing, the property was secluded and excellent for exploring local flora/fungi. My wife walked onto the back deck and couldn't believe what she was hearing was a babbling creek, it was just too perfect. The cabin fixtures and, especially, furniture could use some updating but we will definitely be back.
lee w k.Sep 2019
Kids loved it and I would recommend for family.
Mallory S.Aug 2019
I loved it all was amazing
Julie I.Jul 2019
The location is beautiful and close to everything but also off the beat and path. Needs a washer and dryer.
James E.Jun 2019
This was a great experience highly recommended
Brian K.May 2019
We had a great time, I would recommend this cabin to anyone, we especially liked the sound of the creek at night.
Cynthia T.May 2019
We loved everything about this cabin. Perfect for two women friends. My only complaint was the. Fee for cleaning, taxes and what ever we were charged was as much as the three night rental fee.
Randall E.May 2019
A perfect quiet, secluded cabin in the woods, yet surprisingly close to everything Helen has to offer.
Russell P.Mar 2019
Enjoyed the privacy of this cabin. The setting is great with the babbling creek in the back of the cabin is peaceful.
Tamara R.Mar 2019
Very much enjoyed our weekend. Cabin was so clean, WONDERFULLY private and peaceful with the beautiful creek, and so close to all the great hiking and Helen sights we wanted to see. Great space to enjoy with the dog (who also loved playing in the creek). Tons of fresh, soft, clean towels were great to use after hot tubs and jacuzzi relaxation. Pillows on the beds were way too hard for my preference but the bed was comfortable. Wish there was a little extra seating in the living to relax and enjoy the fire at night. Would definitely stay again but bring my own pillow.
Kimberly J.Jan 2019
This secluded little house sits right on the river. You can hear the water flowing even in the hot tub. I highly recommend this place for a nice quiet getaway
Patricia C.Jan 2019
Perfect location and convenience. From fireplace to hot tub.....wonderful!
Teresa L.Jan 2019
This cabin was wonderful! From the moss covered lane to the back yard creek, it was both well appointed and relaxing. The rain did not even dampen our spirits, but made it a little more cozy!
Mary C.Dec 2018
Great stay with our 2 kids. Very relaxing and felt secluded. Not far from downtown Helen. Enjoyed the hot tub and the beautiful backyard area. Thank you for a great first time in Helen GA.
Stacy H.Dec 2018
We loved it was so close to Helen and that it snowed while we were there.
Jean F.Oct 2018
This cozy cabin was great! Small, but had everything you needed to make your stay comfortable. The hot tub was great and the kitchen had everything you needed. It was very secluded and quiet, but yet just minutes from the center of Helen. Looking forward to going back!
MarQuita J.Aug 2018
It was a really nice place. Will stay again!
JB h.Jul 2018
The location is perfect

This cabin was great! A tucked away gem! Will definitely return for vacation!
Leo B.Apr 2018
The cabin is cute in a nice little location next to a creek. It's very quiet and calm there, yet only 5 minutes to Helen.
Lets just say this house needs some TLC. Obviously some money was spent recently to replace the back deck cover but stuff inside the house needed work. Pretty much all the blinds in the home were damaged. Since these were $5 blinds, $20 a few times a year would go a long way. The bottom posts on the 4 poster bed were missing, but one was laying behind the bed side table. There was a hole in the floor in front of the stove. You should put non marring feet on things like the chairs and couch etc since these things obviously have been moved around and are scratching up the floors. There was no drain plug for the bathroom tub, but a piece of rubber on the tub side that maybe was meant for that. You should cut some of the brush back so you can turn around at the end of the drive. There is a satellite dish in the yard, but only basic cable provided. The light was out in the fan in the bathroom. The light over the dining area is unsafe, the fixture separated and is hanging by the wires. The dining area seat cushion tie straps were torn so the cushions were loose. The ice maker didn't produce any ice the entire time we were there. The seats on the deck were so worn out that if we sat on them, they might self destruct.
I paid for cleaning, but other than the sheets and towels, it was hard to find anything else cleaned. The blinds in the house were filthy. One foot above the lamp in the living room that they left on for us had a huge spider web with another one a few feet higher up on the ceiling. I was welcomed to a dust and hair clump half the size of a baseball sitting on the fireplace hearth. The hot tub was unusable due to brown and white globules floating in the water which was totally gross. None of the kitchen appliances were clean enough to use. There was some kind of white stuff on the end of the kitchen sink's spigot with more stuff on the fixture itself. There was ice in the freezer from the previous renters and the ice that was in the ice maker box had some kind of black stuff on the ice. The counter around the stove looked like the stove top had been moved or replaced and this nasty line of old grease remained. There was hair in the tub in the bathroom and hair and some kind of red sticky goo on the bathroom counter. We basically had to assume nothing was clean so we didn't even cook or use any kitchen utensils to cook or eat. The glass table next to the bed was filthy and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a long time. The furniture was dusty pretty much everywhere. Next to the shower on the wall near the door there as some kind of reddish brown liquid remains that looked like it had run down the wall.
We are sorry to see there were some disappointments with this reservation and wish this guest had contacted us so we could assist them during their stay, especially with the sub-par clean that should not have happened. The damaged blinds have been replaced, the piece of rubber this guest mentioned is a round, flat plug for the tub, and the owner switched from satellite to cable once it became available in the area. Thank you!
Pam G.Jan 2018
This is a nice little property to stay at in Helen and it is really close to everything. It is VERY secluded and relaxing but you must take note of the description of the driveway/path to get to the cabin as it is not the easiest to maneuver. We had to rent this place at the last minute to attend my sister-in-law's surprise 50th birthday party and were really pleased with the cleanliness of it. We have already recommended it to some friends of ours who love their privacy and we will definitely stay here again ourselves.
Donya H.Jan 2018
Great cabin! The fireplace and hot tub were amazing!
Shala V.Jan 2018
We enjoyed the setting of this vacation home. It was very peaceful and quiet. Just be aware you have to take the trash off the property when you leave. It is a little inconvenient, especially with driving a car and having luggage and trash in your trunk. You will enjoy the comfortable, relaxing setting!
Tommy W.Jan 2018
It was an amazing stay and loved everything around us.
Pramod E.Nov 2017
It was very nice experience in this cabin which is closer to the downtown and all other visiting places. Peaceful location is an added advantage. I enjoyed the stay and would love to comeback!
Eydie N.Oct 2017
Nice cabin, very secluded. It was a little hard to find and very dark getting to it.
Brittany B.Sep 2017
This is actually were my husband proposed to me november of 2015. We just got married in june and got to stay again after getting married. I love the property. It's a beautiful area and the cabin itself is perfect. Perfect sized, perfect setup, love it. Since we were there the first time, they covered the back deck where the hot tub is so that was a great surprise. Can't put into words how much i love it. Thank you!!!!
Chris P.Jul 2017
Thanks we enjoyed our stay
Rebecca E.Jul 2017
Our little family of four greatly enjoyed our stay! We plan to go back again!
Jeffrey B.Jul 2017
Enjoyed our time at the home. Clean and well-equipped. The beds are comfortable. Conveniently located near town but far enough away to get your privacy. Hot tub outside was clean and well-maintained. also need to know that they had added a cover over the back porch which is not shown in the pictures which made it very nice to sit out even if it rained. I wouldn't recommend for a family of older kids has the room upstairs has no privacy. Perfect for a couple and some small kids would not also recommend for multiple couples as the upstairs bedroom also has no privacy.
On a side note we brought our two dogs with us and there was a tick problem in the yard apparently they are bad this year in 2017. Once we realize not to take the dogs out into the grass we didn't have much of a problem we kept them on the driveway and gravel areas. But overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Laurel Creek cabin and highly recommended to anybody else who wants to stay there. Really we have no major complaints here. One other thing I would recommend is to place a dumpster closer to the cabin or arrange for the cabin to use a dumpster that is closer to it the drive to the dumpster that is provided for us to use is 5 miles away on top of a mountain.
Robert T.May 2017
This is a comfortable, lovely, secluded little home, away from Helen, but close enough to pop into town when needed. The back patio is lovely, and the brook behind (Horton Creek) makes this a perfect spot to just sit and listen to the birds and the babbling brook and read a book. I even found a spot next to the brook to hang a hammock. So that's the good part. The bad is that it wasn't at all clean, so we had to do it ourselves to make things liveable. We ended up cleaning the range top ourselves, as the top and drip pans were filthy. No ice maker, so I'd recommend buying a bag of ice, and fridge wasn't all that cold. Sofa had trash in it, and don't look underneath it! Patio furniture was filthy and chairs are rotting out, so sit carefully. No place to hang towels or anything else in the bathroom, other than draping over a door or on the tub. We never figured out how to get a channel on the TV other than FX. No big. And unless you like living on the edge, DO NOT plan to use the grill. The grill is a rusted out fire-trap. Propane tank valve is frozen open, so no way to shut it off in case of emergency. Cooking grate is rusted out, as is the heat-dispersion shield. The inside was coated with grease and gunk, as we discovered when the whole thing caught fire after we got it going. Bottom line, this grill is a fire hazard that needs to be replaced.
All the problems above are easily fixable. My hope is someone pays attention to this and other reviews, and makes this a totally great place to stay.
The home has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. The propane tanks are full and not stuck open on the grill, and the grate has been replaced. Thank you!
Stephanie G.Mar 2017
The cabin was nice and very clean. The view of the backyard was incredible! You can sit in the hot tub and listen to the creek and completely relax. The beds were very comfy and both the kitchen and bathroom were well stocked with supplies. The only complaint I had was having to drive with my trash for 10 miles as that is where the closest provided dump site was located. Other than that, I had no issues and enjoyed my stay.
Sherie P.Mar 2017
We enjoyed our stay very much!
Christopher D.Mar 2017
Area was peacful to visit. Would be nice if more Bath towels were provided on propert or a way to wash and dry your own cloths/towels. Towels were hard to dry in cold weather especially after showering or using hot tub. Some extra would be great. I even drove out to BlueRidge Cabins main office twice and no one was their. The cabin air filter and air ducts were very dusty and clogged with dog hair and dirt. Discovered when entire family was sneezing and caughing during our stay.
Meggie T.Nov 2016
Loved the hot tub! Very comfortable and high quality! The bed was comfortable that we slept in. Cable TV, comfy couch, creek out back, loved it!
Bernadette G.Nov 2016
Convenient,immaculate,quiet!!! Couldn't ask for more...very relaxing!!!!
Sherry M.Nov 2016
Accomodations wee exactly as pictured... secluded but just a 19 min drive to Helen or Ana Ruby Falls. We used the grill, hot tub and spent lots of time on the deck enjoying the view. Would have loved chipped wood for outdoor fire pit but overall fabulous!!!
