Comfortable & Lovely Accommodations!

August 24, 2014

We had a wonderful stay! The house was exactly as pictured and incredibly clean and well-stocked with towels, washcloths, soap, detergent, etc. The property attendant was incredibly informative and helpful. Sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs and looking out after a long day was just right, and soaking in the hot tub after the stars came out was lovely! Natalie was a wonderful owner to work with and very gracious with her reasonable fee for our dog to accompany us. My husband and I will definitely return!

Owner's reply:

Whitney and her family made the most of their getaway. It's our goal to be all our guests having a relaxing and refreshing time. They don't call it "Starlight Dr." for nothing. Zillions (if that's even a word) of stars & shooting stars not if your up on your astrology, you can make out the constellations. Thank you Whitney! Come again soon.

Family get away

January 19, 2014

We arrived on a Friday evening.We were met by the sweetest lady.She showed us the cabin and how to turn everything on and let us know that if we needed anything,just give her a call. The cabin was beautiful inside and out.We all just loved it. Then on Sat.,we went into Helen and walked around town and had dinner at one of the restaurants in town.We didn't really like the food,but,we still enjoyed being together as a family. Got back to the cabin and watches movies and just relaxed. The only thing that we didn't get to do was use the hot tub,it was just too cold for that. But,all in all we had a blast and the cabin had everything we needed,from trash bags to bathroom tissue.All we needed was our food and us. We look foward to stay here again. one of the nicest cabins we have stayed. Thank you Natalie for the use of your cabin.It was the greatest place to stay. We made some good memories while there. Thank you, Cathy,Lee,James,Nicole and Victoria

Natalie Mazzola

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Cathy for the awesome review. It's our goal to provide our guests with a real home away from home. I'm so glad you enjoyed the cabin as well as the area. Yes, the food in Helen isn't the best to say the least. I guess it's the location by the river that makes it a great place to sit. Do come again and perhaps you can stay longer? Take care. NM

Wonderful weekend getaway

August 31, 2012

My family and I made a short-notice weekend get--away and truly enjoyed this rental. This was the first time we'd rented a property instead of hotel, and it was great! The owners and caretaker were prompt and helpful. We enjoyed hiking to a couple of the local waterfalls, and shopping & dinner in Helen. The local materials the owners provided at the prpperty were helpful to guide us to the waterfalls and other interesting things in the area. My husband and I even enjoyed a few games of backgammon, which we haven't done in years! My daughter and niece enjoyed the hot tub too! While it's in a residential neighboorhood, it was still private and close to Helen. The only thing that bothered us was the TV size... we're used to big screen TVs, so the smaller screens were a disapointment... but I think we're spoiled. The other thing to note is cell coverage is lacking, but that's the point of a get-away, right? It didn't bother my husband and I, but my daughter and niece find it hard to live without their phones... 'amazingly', they managed fine! If we get another chance to take a weekend off again, we'll be checking this place out again! I definitely recommend this property to others!

Natalie Mazzola

Owner's reply:

Thx for the comments. The 32" tv in the living room seems small in comparison to the wall unit. We too are spoiled, but like you say, the point is to getaway from it all. As for cell service, it depends on the carrier. White county passed laws not permitting any more towers. It's a shame, but guess they want to keep the mountains beautiful and tech free. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon. ;-)

Enjoyed our stay!

August 13, 2012

We had a great experience! The cabin was immaculate, well equipped, decorated nicely and very comfortable! Both the owner and their local contact were really nice - we were met right on our arrival and the owner went above board to work with us on the arrangements, especially considering we made a last minute reservation. The location was excellent - we had scenic drives to Nantahala for rafting and to Amicolala Falls for hiking that weren't too long either way. The neighborhood is not an especially rustic setting, but a fantastic homebase to venture out to experience nature. (We'd considered camping for this trip - roasting marshmallows on a campfire and hanging the hammocks from the trees. This cabin is a bit more residential than outdoorsy, but we certainly took advantage of those benefits)! We'd highly recommend this rental property to travelers to North Georgia.

Gorgeous House in the Mountains!!

April 20, 2012

We rented this property for our children and grandchildren, when they came to visit from Michigan. We could not be happier, the property is imaculate and well maintained! Beautifully layed out and decorated, yet very comfortable and everyone felt right at home. The children's room was terrific for the kids and came with toys, games, TV & DVD! This house is close to Helen as well as many other attractions. My children were pleasantly surprised at how much there was to do in the area! Natalie (the owner) makes sure you have everything you need, including pamphlets and info on the area. We will definitely utilize this home in the future, when family or friends come to visit!

A Wonderful Christmas Getaway
