This spacious mountain home offers everything you'll need for a fantastic getaway. With a large open kitchen, a Tuscan wine cellar-themed dining room with an eight-foot table, a large screen SmartTV, a private hot tub, a custom-built billiards table, panoramic mountain views, three luxurious bedroom suites with large private balconies and jetted spa tubs en suite, and a baby grand piano, the list of amenities goes on and on. This gorgeous Helen-Sautee Nacoochee vacation rental is the getaway of your dreams.
Surrounded by an acre-and-a-half of sweet smelling trees and woods to explore, this home is private and quiet. Helen is near enough for a quick trip at seven miles, and outdoor adventures await at Unicoi State Park, home to Anna Ruby Falls, Unicoi Lake, and a beach for swimming and canoeing, just four miles away.
With soaring ceilings, gorgeous panoramic mountain views, and large windows on both the first and second floors, you can see forever. There is plenty of natural light, and the solid wood walls and ceiling add a truly comfy yet sophisticated log cabin feel to this beautiful home. Watch a movie on the large 65-inch Smart TV and settle for an entertaining afternoon. If you're feeling competitive, grab a cue and play a game of pool upstairs in the billiard room, watch your favorite sports on a large SmartTV, or just log onto the free WiFi to check on the goings-on back home. Beautiful mountain views help set the scene for a lovely vacation.
Imagine a beautiful wine cellar-themed dining room to compliment the neighboring vineyards and wine tasting rooms; you will feel as though you are enjoying fine dining in a Tuscan wine cellar. The eight-foot wood dining table, with eight plush dining chairs plus four additional chairs, provides you with seating for up to 12. You will feel as though you have left the country without leaving your vacation home. This fully equipped kitchen is ready for you to prepare a gourmet or casual meal. Enjoy modern stainless steel appliances plus a kitchen island, providing extra space for food preparation, appetizers, or wine tasting space, as well as a hanging wine glass rack with souvenir wine glasses from the area wineries.
There is a very nice grill for a barbecue through the French doors, which fully open onto the deck overlooking gorgeous mountain views. If you prefer outdoor dining, there is a large table and extra seating just outside; all the decks have decorative area rugs for comfort and ambience. Candle lanterns are on automatic timers, providing candlelight throughout the house without even lighting the candles. They just pop on at dusk. A dishwasher keeps cleanup time to a minimum. There is a large shelving unit in the laundry room for storing lots of groceries. There is also a beverage refrigerator for beer, wine, and other drinks in the billiard room.
As the stars come out, sink into the hot tub and soak away all of your cares. There's nothing like deep heat and fresh air for supreme relaxation. Bar stools accompany the outside bar next to the hot tub. Holiday lights add a festive feel while you're relaxing in the hot tub. Turn the heat down and enjoy it as a wading pool on summer days. There is also a full-size horseshoe game that you can play as singles or in teams.
Guests will enjoy their stay in this luxurious house. Each of the three bedrooms is a suite, making this an ideal couples' retreat. There are two matching bedrooms upstairs and an equally matching bedroom downstairs; all bedrooms are equal in size. All of the rooms are decorated with theme bedding and one features a four-poster bed. Each has a private balcony and an en suite bathroom with a jetted tub. If you need a bit more sleeping space, there are two futons that can sleep two guests apiece. In addition to the en suite bathrooms, there is a half bath downstairs. For your convenience, there's a private, full-size washer and dryer.
Take a hike at the beginning of the world-famous Appalachian Trail or to one of the many dramatic waterfalls, or try the easier walk on the Dukes Creek Falls Trail. Cool yourself off by floating down the Chattahoochee River or zipline though the canopy of Unicoi State Park. The Aerial Adventure is like no other, with 19 zip lines and seven suspension bridges that range from 75 to 2,000 feet in length and heights up to 100 feet. With beaches, waterfalls, hikes, parks, and natural beauty, North Georgia is the place to be.
North Georgia is also home to many sensational vineyards and wineries within 20 to 30 minutes. Yonah Mountain Winery is just 26 minutes away; Frog Town, Three Sisters, and Kaya Vineyards are all grouped together just 30 minutes away; Habersham Winery is 15 minutes away; and Serenity Cellars is just 22 minutes away. They are all beautiful vineyards and wine tasting rooms; wine tours are available, so there is no need to drive.
Downtown Helen is a quaint alpine village with golf, miniature golf, and quaint German restaurants with a little bit of everything for everyone to enjoy. This summer will see the opening of a new alpine rollercoaster that's guaranteed to thrill you. Try rock climbing or go-karting. There are endless things to do.
