Sheltered from the paved road, the setting of the Mountaineer is completed by a graveled, pull-through driveway that encloses the classy looking cabin in foliage. Woods separate you from your only neighbor on the left. There is plenty of parking for guests, with no tight corners or steep climbs so that it’s easy to drive in and out of the cabin. On arrival, a long elevated front porch overlooks the driveway and new fire pit area.
Inside, Pergo floors with colorful carpets, scores of knotty pine walls, and soaring wood ceilings remind you that you are in the mountains! A wood burning fireplace for those chilly nights, leather couches, and dining for six with windows overlooking the woods makes the open floor place of this vacation rental like a ‘home away from home’! A huge 42′ flat screen TV provides hours of digital entertainment, as does the stereo. Wireless internet and local phone service is provided for your convenience.
Three bedrooms make this cabin a smart choice for 3 couples, or extended family. Each sunny bedroom overlooks the woods, with a king bed with topper and plush pillows, plus a TV and DVD player. The largest upper bedroom features a reading alcove with leather recliner in the dormer. Cabin-themed bathrooms with tub/shower combos are located next to two of the bedrooms.
A brand-new washer and dryer set in the upstairs hallway take care of any laundry needs you may have.
The fully-equipped L-shaped kitchen hosts a microwave, flat top stove and oven, full size refrigerator, and dishwasher. A blender, crockpot, coffeepot, and wide slot toaster oven take care of your small appliance needs, and plenty of silverware, glassware, Pyrex, dishware and Tramontina skillets and pots allow you to cook when you feel like it.
On the screened back deck, a huge bubbling hot tub with new cover overlooks the side yard while you soak away the tensions of your day. A new Weber grill and picnic table to the left of the cabin create an natural setting to eat your summer meals.
The cabin is located just off Route 356, less than six rolling miles from the town of Helen, or just 2.7 miles from beautiful Unicoi Lake and Anna Ruby Falls. Take in the beauty of the surrounding Chattahoochee Forest, tube in the Hoochee River that winds through the town of Helen, relax in a horse-drawn carriage in town, or ride your own horse in one of the two stables close to town. Shopping and restaurants are plentiful (including the Front Porch Restaurant on your way from the cabin to Helen), and local wineries make for a memorable day during your stay!
Come stay in the comfort of your own cabin, complete with all the amenities you need!
We had such an amazing time. The property was beautiful, super clean, and they obviously put a lot of love into it. It is private, but easy to get to. This has been our favorite rental!
The property is adorable! Very well taken care of! And the owner has EXCELLENT communication. There is a king bed in every room so everyone in your party sleeps comfortably. It’s paved road all the way there which for me it was a huge plus. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you!
My family and I enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing weekend getaway at this cabin. The cabin was very clean and cozy. This will for sure be a spot that we would like to visit again! Kate was such a pleasure to deal with! I would highly recommend to anyone.
The Mountaineer was the perfect cabin for our Ladies weekend. Nice comfy couches and beds!! The hot tub was warmed up and ready to be used. An added bonus with the hot tub is that it’s enclosed by a screen porch! No attacks of bug or leaves:) The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with everything we would need (except for food of course). The entire cabin was VERY clean and actually the cleanest we have stayed in. Kate was extremely helpful with booking and making sure our stay would be worry free. Thank you! We look forward to staying at the Mountaineer in the near future!
