Description of the Helen vacation cabin rental
You'll think you've died and gone to heaven! Everything you could want from a vacation rental property. This luxury cabin known as "White Rapids Retreat" is located on the Buck Shoals gorgeous wide stretch of the Chattahoochee River near Helen and is anything but ordinary. Relax and sleep to the sounds of the rushing river rapids just 50 feet from the cabin and enjoy the panoramic open views of the river while soaking in the hot tub.

This unique section of the river directly behind the cabin is your own private water amusement park: enjoy swimming, sunning and relaxing on the sandbar in the middle of the river, tubing / kayaking / rafting from behind the cabin, playing on the natural rock waterslides, and hiking along the river. The fishing is excellent behind the cabin for smallmouth bass, striped bass, catfish, and bream.

The kids will love climbing trees and playing on the tire swing on the property. Your stress will melt away as you catnap in the riverside hammock or soak in the hot tub. The screened porch with natural slate tile floor overlooks the river and has satellite TV so Dad won't miss any of the football game. Any gourmet chef would be delighted by the beautiful kitchen, stainless steel grill on the deck, and half drum charcoal grill down by the river.

The picnic table next to the river makes the perfect place for a Sunday afternoon cookout. Your kids will never forget the family nights spent around the riverside campfire telling ghost stories, catching fireflies, and roasting marshmallows. Drink a cherry Coke on the front porch swing and you'll feel like your back in Mayberry.

Nature lovers should keep an eye out for the wild deer and Canadian geese in the backyard while sipping your morning coffee. This property is very private and secluded, the opposite side of the river is part of a state park. Enjoy nature walks through the woods on the property.

Play games and watch movies by a cozy stacked stone fireplace. The interior of the cabin is beautifully decorated with rustic log furniture and antique motif. Whatever your age or interests, there is something for everyone at this extraordinary river cabin retreat.

There is WiFi in the cabin and a laptop computer for you to use during your stay.

Guests consistently remark that they have never seen a more breathtaking river view property as this one!!! This is the ultimate river cabin vacation experience!!!

Third year.

June 25, 2013

This was our third year in a row visiting the cabin. Must say we really missed the hammock:( The river is higher than it has ever been making it difficult to walk back up stream. Still a lovely experience.

Owner's reply:

Dear Suzan,
Thanks for continuing to come back to White Rapids Retreat each year! Unfortunately, one of the renters stole our hammock recently, but we will be replacing it soon. See you next year.

Great Spot on the River!

The cabin was a wonderful retreat outside of Helen. We have found that many other North GA cabins are too close together and not very private - this one was private and very relaxing! All amenities were great comfy. Would definitely go back! Just a note - make sure you follow the cabin owner's directions and not Google's.

Absolutely wonderful!

Beautiful,comfortable,clean cabin with plenty of room for the family to spread out. Great easy access to the Chatahoochee River with rapids right at your back door. Yonah Mountain is just up the road for either your viewing pleasure or if you like to hike,you can climb. Highly recommend this location!

Nice place

March 11, 2009

The cabin is very secluded and has many great features. We loved the river access and the campfire area. The cabin itself is very clean. The hammock and hot tub are nice for relaxing as well. It was unfortunately too early in the year to catch fish and there wasn't a propane tank on the grill, but thoe were minor details. We loved the place and we will go back again.

The house was fantastic and river beautiful. It was well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. The only negative was that there was no wood cut for the fireplace or matches to start a fire, so we did not get to enjoy it. I would definitely go back, especially in the summer or fall to enjoy the river more. I would also suggest in the directions to be specific about which way the house is once you get to the driveway. At night, you can not tell which is the log cabin with green roof. Bear left at end of driveway would be more explicit. We all had a great time there.

relaxing river retreat

November 5, 2008

This home was awesome and we had a blast. The grandkids waded across the rocks for 2 days. We especially enjoyed our campfire, the hot tub and cooking out. The back porch was perfect. The owners are so lucky and they were so nice to communicate with. We plan to go back in the spring.




Great place

October 8, 2008

The house and especially the river on the property were spectacular. I've rented quite a few cabins in this area but this one is my favorite. The owner is also very easy to communicate with and was able to offer up personal suggestions for kayaking and dining. I'll be back.
