About the area

We have ***TWO Cabins*** #40 and #50. The Cabins are located in a wooded area, 3 miles from downtown Helen, Ga. Located off Hwy. 356, about 1 mile from Unicoi State Park and are accessible by most vehicles. The Cabins are identical on the inside and feature the same amenities. Both cabins have a private hot tub located outdoors on the covered deck. Although located close to Helen, Georgia the cabins are still far enough away to enjoy the piece and quiet of the NE Georgia Mountains. ***Scroll through all the pictures, pictures of both cabins (#40 & #50) are shown on this same site***

Getting around

There is a notebook in the cabin showing information on some of the local activities, restaurants, and shopping areas.

Interaction with guest

After the full rental balance is received an email with the Directions/ Instructions to get to the cabin will be sent to you. You will go directly to the cabin to check in. We have a lock box on the wall by the door of the cabin to retrieve the keys to the cabin.

“Nice Getaway”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2017

Very cute cabin; the bed was most comfortable and the hot tub was enjoyable. It rained our entire stay, but we still enjoyed just getting away from the stress of everyday life. Perfect for two people. Thank you for sharing your sweet cabin with us!

The cabin was very cozy, well decorated, bed was very comfortable, hot tub was great, fireplace was romantic. I highly recommend this place for 2 ppl and a dog.

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2016

Let me start off by saying this is a lovely cabin and hiideaway. My husband and I enjoyed it immensely. We had a alttle problem with the stairs, due to our physical circumstances. We were planning on getting out more but this was comfy and we just enjoyed being at the cabin with our two fur babies. The amenities was everything we could ask for. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. I really want also to mention how wonderful it was dealing with Elaine you were lovely to talk with. We will always have special memories good and hilarious. Always something to laugh about with me and Charlie. Thanks again for the memories.

Owner's reply: Thank you, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come back again soon!

“Perfect Getaway Cabin”

We absolutely loved this cabin! It was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 boxers. We will definitely be staying here again!

Owner's reply: We are So happy you enjoyed your stay at our cabin #50. We hope to welcome you back very soon!

“Time To Relax”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2015

Enjoyed our time at this sweet little cabin. Everything was as the owner said-comfortable bed, plenty of towels, hot tub in great condition and a gas grill. The shower was great with plenty of pressure. It was just right for my husband and I. Would not recommend for someone with any kind of leg, knee, foot problems as there are stairs to the bed and the bathroom is down stairs. Easy checkin/checkout. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's reply: So happy you enjoyed your stay at our cabin....hope you will return again soon.

“Nice living space - Great Porch”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2015

The cabin is great for two people and a pet. The big porch and hot tub were great for being outside even if it's raining. Some more towels were needed but the cabin is comfortable. Bigger than a tiny house but not too large. Would go back again. In a private setting.

“Lovely Cabin”

Reviewed 22 May 2015

Wonderful cabin for our week long stay in Georgia with our two dogs. Since it was hotter than expected, everyone appreciated the A/C in the loft. It was quiet and conveniently located near popular attractions. We even had the pleasure of seeing a mama bear and her two cubs walking near the cabin one morning.

Owner's reply: We strive to make our guest comfortable and happy. Hope to have you back again soon.

“Nice Getaway”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2015

My husband and I rented this cabin for a weekend getaway and were very glad to be able to bring our furry family member! The owners were very helpful and answered my many questions quickly and nicely. The area had recently received several inches of snow, and the dirt road to the cabin was slick, muddy, and had several potholes, but our Accord handled it just fine. The cabin itself was neat, clean, and had everything that was described in the listing. The antique decorations are adorable, the furniture serviceable, and the kitchen stocked with necessities for preparing light meals. The bathroom was small but clean, and the bedroom loft was very cozy with an extremely comfortable king size bed. Linens were adequate for a short stay, and the bathrobes were a very nice and appreciated touch. The hot tub seemed to run well and appeared very clean; the listing stated it was drained and refilled prior to each new rental, and that gave me peace of mind. Had the weather been not so cold, we would've enjoyed the porch rockers, but we settled for the fireplace instead. The downstairs floor heaters kept us warm enough, and the bathroom heater quickly took the chill out of the air. The TV could stand to be a bit larger, and the toaster needs to be replaced (burnt the outsides of the bread and didn't toast the insides at all), but everything else was in good condition. It was awesome to have wifi service to keep up with weather and our daughter's trip to DC with her class. Due to the snowfall, some places were still closed, but we managed to do a little light hiking with the dog and enjoy Helen's downtown offerings. I didn't look through the entire guest notebook, so I might have missed something, but suggestions of dog-friendly places and trails would have been helpful. I definitely hope to stay here again and would recommend this cabin to friends looking for a quick getaway to an easily accessible rental property.

“Perfect for weekend getaway!”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2014

We really liked that the cabin was farther back, almost the last cabin on the road so it provided more privacy. The cabin was very clean and decorated nicely and provided all that we needed as far as linens and utensils. They even had dogs bowls! The hot tub was large and very clean as well. They even left firewood for us which was really nice. The weather was not great so we spent a lot of time inside but it was perfect for our dogs to lay out on the porch and enjoy the scenery. Since we were inside a bit, I do wish the TV was a bit larger but this wouldn't be an issue if you don't plan to be inside the cabin all day. The cabin is a perfect size for the two of us. We really enjoyed being under the covered porch and having the picnic table and grill. There are other cabins close by but at this particular time of year, most are not occupied. This is a perfect place for us to stay with our dogs for a short getaway because it's not such a long trip from home. Thanks for making our trip great!

Owner's reply: we are so happy you enjoyed you stay at the cabin and hope you will return again soon.

“Fantastic Stay!”

Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our stay at Time Away cabin was wonderful! The cabin was cute, cozy and clean and I was so happy to be able to bring our dog with us. The cabin is very close to downtown, as well as Unicoi State Park and tube rentals. The owner was great about answering questions in a timely manner. My husband and I would love to come again and stay in this same cabin.

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed your stayed our cabin near Helen, Ga. Come back soon!

We absolutely loved the cabin and will definitely come back. The doggies loved it as well. It was very comfortable and perfect! The hot tub was amazing and the location was great. Not far from hiking and entertainment. We had a wonderful stay! You were also incredibly quick to respond to our emails and requests during our stay. It was nice that Larry came by and checked on us to see if we needed anything. Thank you so much Elaine!!!!

Good Morning! YES We did absolutely enjoy our stay at your lovely cabin! It was very clean and had just about everything you could think of you might need at a home away from home. I was able to prepare a Thanksgiving meal in the kitchen without bringing any cookware or utensils of my own! We would recommend this cabin to our friends and family for sure. We plan on a trip back in the near future as well! We loved the peacefulness but also being so close to downtown Helen. It was perfect! Thank you so much! Kindest Regards, Mary Ruff

Dear Elaine, Thank you for a very enjoyable weekend. We love the area, hope to own our own little cabin too. The place was very nice and clean. The bed was comfy and it was perfect weather and Helen was lit up for Christmas.

hello Elaine just wanted to express how enjoyable your cabin was for our getaway. as I had read from your comments page, every detail was addressed in your home away from home. sadly, we had lots of rain but we trudged on and did quiet a bit of junking, ie antique shopping.much thanks and we will plan to return to your cabin on our fall getaway next year.

Hi Elaine,My Wife & I were guests at your rental.We absolutely loved it.It was just right for us.It was the perfect home to enjoy our honeymoon.We will definitely be recommending this to our family & friends.We also look forward to staying here again.Thanks & God Bless. Darren & Malinda Vaughn

10Hi - We had a great stay in your cabin... I meant to e-mail you yesterday... but busy life picked up right where we left off. The cabin was very comfortable and clean and renter friendly. Since it was a short stay we did not eat in except for snacks. But it seemed like you had a well-stocked kitchen which is something we usually look for. We didn't get a chance to use the hot tub, but it looked great too. We loved the area and hope to return some time. We know your cabin is not large enough for kids, but if you have something that would be appropriate let us know. We have a 5 year old and an 8 1/2 year old. Thanks again for sharing your cabin with us. Grace Wilkinson /31/09

Elaine, I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time! Your cabin is beautiful. My husband was very happy! Angela Fogle

Thank you for letting us enjoy your cabin. It was everything we expected and more. Love all the small details on the property. The location was excellent, close to everything.
We had a wonderful time. We had all the comforts of home but in a very quaint and romantic setting.

Hello Elaine - I just wanted to say that we had a wonderful stay in your cabin. Loved the hot tub and the robes were a nice touch. We enjoyed Helen and the Mayfest.

Hi Elaine - thanks so much for the rental of your cabin. It was the perfect little get-away - just wish we had the time to stay a little longer. Would it be okay if I kept your email for possible re-rental in the future?

Thanks so much again!!

We had a wonderful stay, at cabin #50. It was very clean, comfortable and quiet. We will be renting from you again in the near future.

The stay at the Cabin was very comfortable. It was clean, the contents of the Cabin met our needs, the information received before the trip was very helpful (directions, key, etc). I would vist again and will refer to others.

Hi Elaine,
We had a really nice time at the cabin. It was perfect for both of us. The bed was really comfortable, where did you get those pillows? I need to buy that kind. The only thing was just getting access to the Internet, other than that we would stay there again.


Hi Elaine,

My husband and I had a great time at your cabin. It was a very cozy cabin for the two of us. Thank you again.

Mrs. Perkins,
My husband and I had a really great time at your cabin over the weekend. We loved how it was so secluded but it was close enough to town so that you can enjoy all of the little shops. Also, it was just the right size for the both of us, very cozy and clean. The bed was so comfortable that since we've been home, I've been shopping for one just like it. I wish I could have just rolled it up, put it in my pocket and taken it home with me. This cabin was the best way that we could have celebrated our 1st anniversary being husband and wife. I think we're going to make it a yearly thing and will definitely be coming back in the future. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us!

Katrina W.

We had such a blast! We really liked the location of the cabin. It was close enough to town but secluded and private as well. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the State Parks and trails. The cabin was the perfect size for us, nice jacuzzi, gril. We were glad to find and iron and ironing board - the only minor thing was the iron leaked water a bit. Thanks for having us and we look forward to staying again!

Hello Elaine and Charles,

The cabin was fantastic! My wife and I were VERY pleased with it and will be booking it again very soon. Thank you for letting u for letting us use it. Have a great day.

Sorry IT has taken me so long to respond back to you.
But the cabin was great, everything was just as described. Very quiet and cozy, close to everything in the area. Had a great weekend, the bed was a dream to sleep in and hot tub was wonderful. I will recommend it to all my friends and family. Was perfect for a weekend getaway for me and my wife. Would be great for any couple wanting to spend some quality time with each other alone.

I would not change a thing, eyerything was perfect, the nice big bed, fully stock kitchen, gas in the grill, and the hot was really nice. We will be back! thank you , Greg

We really enjoyed staying at your cabin. Everything was pristine clean & ready to go upon our arrival. We look forward to coming again VERY SOON & possibly into renting your condo in Florida. We haven't been to the beach in years!!

Thanks again & thanks for working with us on the late arrival.

Just a quick note to let you know we had a great time in Cabin #50. It was exactly what we were looking for and what we needed. Our hectic schedules and attention to others had taken its toll. The relaxing time spent in your cabin has rejuvenated us.
Thanks again for everything,

Our stay was splendid. We enjoyed it so much.
The cabin was very comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed the bed so much. It was SOOOO comfortable.
The only issue that we ran into was that there were no extra trash bags. We came prepared with paper towels and toilet paper, but we failed to bring extra trash bags.
Thank you so much for working with me on such a short notice. We appreciate it very much. Helen is a very charming town and we would love to come back again soon.

Cabin #40
Elaine, thank you so much! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at the cabin. We loved how secluded it was. I wouldn't change a thing about it and we definitely plan on coming back up sometime. I wanted to tell you, we actually had an interesting encounter our first night there. We stepped outside for a few and heard an awful shrill cry that sounded like a woman screaming, about three times... we both got spooked and decided to call Helen P.D. just to be safe.... the officer shows up about 45 minutes later (laughing nonetheless) and lets us know that what we heard was a panther. Apparently it's mating season and thats their mating call, and that it does sound just like a woman screaming. He said we should consider ourselves lucky that we heard it because it's rarely heard by the locals. Go figure. Other than the wild panther adventure, we had a very relaxing weekend... and a great story to tell. Haha. Oh, and we had some firewood leftover so we just left it in the tin bucket by the fireplace. Thank you again so much, Elaine. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation and not to mention, we lucked out with a beautiful weekend (it was about 65/70 the whole time). We have every intention of coming back in a few months so I'll contact you when the time comes around.

cabin #40
My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay, it was secluded enough to be considered a "getaway" yet still so close to downtown Helen - it's in a perfect location! The cabin was cozy and comfortable - we felt right at home! The bed was SO comfortable, that was the hardest part about leaving! We appreciate you letting us stay & plan to rent again in the near future - I can only imagine how great it will be in the summertime! Thanks again!

Cabin #40- Our stay at the cabin was great! It was in a good location, close to town but far away enough to relax in peace and quiet. The cabin was very clean and exactly what we were hoping for! Thank you so much for allowing us to rent the cabin. I am sure we will be doing it again soon!

Hi Elaine,
Great visit, we found the cabin just as advertised, clean and comfortable.

We had a wonderful time! Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will definitely be back.


Cabin #50:
Hey Elaine,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the usage of the cabin this past weekend. My boyfriend and I had an amazing time. The cabin was perfect! We had everything we needed. Everything was immaculate, and wonderfully stocked. It was such a wonderfully peaceful time from our very busy schedules. We will definitely be back again! :)

Cabin #50
The cabin was a perfect size for us as a couple away for a weekend. Not far away from town, it was convenient to the shops and stores. We had a roaring fire in the fireplace, and while sitting in the jacuzzi saturday afternoon, a black bear ambled by not 30 feet away. Awesome experience.

Cabin #50 guest response.
The cabin was awesome! We've already decided we'll be back! The cabin was clean, comfortable, and the little notes like on the TV for the guide channel, over the jacuzzi; for proper usage, etc.. made everything real easy to get into the "we don't want to go home mode". Helen was absolutely fantastic and the cabin was far enough away that we enjoyed the beautiful drive into town and not to mention helped us stumble onto Anna Ruby Falls (in route), which we knew we wanted to see but hadn't nailed down exact location. I strongly recommend "Time Away" unless your "Time Away" conflicts with ours, then you should book another time. LOL.
Thank you,
Brian D.

Cabin #50 guest response-
Simply: quaint, lovely, safe, quiet - perfect romantic get away. Wonderful loft - even great DVDs! Delightful for a couple! We will be back in short order.
Thanks again. Jeff D.

The cabin was clean and very cozy.
We arrived at the cabin after dusk, there was a small light on as we entered the pathway to the front door.
It would have been helpful for a porch light to be on to better see the lock box to enter. Just a small suggestion
for those who arrive in the dark.
We really enjoyed the cabin's location and could relax very comfortably in the Hot tub.
My husband and I agree the communication between you (the owner) and us (the renters) was very open and easy; which makes
a trip or vacation start off in the right direction.
Thank-you for the opportunity and we will recommend your cabin to our family and friends for future use,
Cricket & Jeff

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your cabin. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed to make the weekend very relaxing. Iwould recommend this cabin to any couple that needs a quiet and relaxing place to get away . Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful cabin.

Than you for the fabulous cabin! The location to Unicoi Park was really convenient for our hiking needs! We will probably be coming back in October so I have your information saved and will contact you as things get closer.
Again, thank you so much!
G. and L. Hiller

We very much enjoyed your cabin. The only thing i would suggest is extra blankets or a couple of throws. We kept taking the blanket off the king bed when we were downstairs but the rest was perfect. Look forward to visiting again! Let me know if you have any larger cabins , next time we may include the children. Have a great day!

A. Myers

We had an excellent time this past weekend. Me and Karen both agreed that the only thing that we could think of that we would suggest is a security light on the corner of the cabin where you park cause after dark it is a little difficult to see the pathway, maybe the headlights from your vehicle could trip it and give you light when your trying to get inside. But the cabin was great the hot tub was so relaxing. For the price we paid it was as good a decision as I have ever made renting from you. Thanks,
M. Pollard

The cabin was clean and very comfortable with all the necessary kitchen supplies. We especially enjoyed the hot tub. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Great getaway for two.
H. Hopper

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your cabin last weekend. The cabin was perfect for us and our Yorkies. We will definitely keep your contact information so that we can stay with you on our next trip to Helen.

Good Afternoon Elaine!
I just wanted to send you a quick note about our stay over the weekend! First of all, thank you so much for such a quick turn-around for getting us set up. I know you had a lot on your plate Friday. We had an incredible time and loved the cabin! It was so cozy and close to all the activities I had planned!
