We are located five (5) miles from Helen. A quiet and peaceful setting on a small lake far from the noise and bustle of Helen but close enough to enjoy the restaurants, tubing, arts and entertainment. Helen is at the entrance to all of the massive National Forests with beautiful trails and tracks to see nature at its best.

The space

We provide a complete one bedroom apartment with bathroom, kitchenette (gas stove), microwave, sitting area and desk. A large bedroom with dressing table makes it easy to pack and unpack.

Guest access

A divider is in place past the bathroom to ensure your absolute privacy.

Interaction with guests

We live upstairs and are readily available but always respect our guests privacy. I always try to introduce myself, explain the A/c, phone etc. but leave it up to you the guest to drive further involvement. If you need me I am there, if not you will be left in peace.

Other things to note

We have three (3) friendly dogs who have no access to your area but you are welcome to interact with them inside the fenced yard.

Secluded and quiet in the best way possible. The area is beautiful, with quick and easy access to Helen and national parks. John was easy to get in touch with if needed but definitely let us have our peace. All the amenities needed. It was a great stay for my wife and I. Highly recommended if you're spending time in North Georgia.

Cute, fully functional little apartment in a daylight basement. Everything was comfortable and clean. Just far enough from Helen/Nacoochee to feel secluded - but close enough that it's a trivial drive. May stay again!

Great place - out of the way and quiet. Host was great to communicate with.

John is a very nice host, he greeted us right when we pulled up to his place and directed us to the back entrance. The place is even better in person. Beautiful, quite, and only a 10-15 minute drive to Helen.

John’s an amazing host! His secluded cabin is great! We got there on a clear night and were able to see the most stars I’ve ever seen. He provided a whole list of places to eat, activities, and cool sightseeing for us. Also he lives right off a beautiful little lake. His hospitality goes above and beyond.

The place was convenient for one or two nights stay and close by Helen and to some of the wineries nearby. John's place was very accurate to the pictures however we did have difficulties with the lock. Very pleasant couple and the place was very spacious! Keep in mind it's semi-private and because you're in the mountains reception is very spotty!
