If you're in need of a break from stressful city living, consider a rejuvenating stay at this dog-friendly, three-bedroom home in the rolling hills of north Georgia. Residing in a gated community with shared tennis courts, a swimming pool, and a public golf course, it'll provide the perfect rural retreat for your group of up to six guests and three dogs!
Located in Helen, a quaint mountain town about 94 miles northeast of Atlanta, this home is surrounded by natural beauty. Just minutes away you'll find beautiful state parks with activities like hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, canoeing, and much more.
Step inside this three-level home to unwind in its cabin-like interior, featuring vaulted ceilings, wood panel walls, and outdoor-themed decor. Melt into luxurious leather couches for a nap in the living area, or flip on the gas fireplace for some warmth on a chilly day. The room even features a DVD- and cable-equipped television that's perfect for an evening indoors.
When fresh air is needed, head onto the wraparound decks, where you'll be treated to sweeping views of the surrounding hills and forest. Sip a glass of sweet tea while enjoying the views, or take a seat on the deck's rocking chairs and gaze upon the star-filled sky at night.
If you've come during warm weather, make sure to bring along your swimsuit, tennis rackets, and golf clubs for the community courts, course, and pool nearby. And if you'd like to bring your dogs, they're welcome to join with a small nightly fee.
Ready to eat? Head into the well-equipped kitchen to whip up something delicious. All cooking is quick and easy thanks to modern appliances and spacious countertops to lay out ingredients. There's even a dishwasher for effortless cleanup afterward.
Join your group for breakfast, lunch, and dinner together at the six-seat table indoors, or opt for al fresco dining on the deck. Feeling like a cookout? Just fire up the gas grill to enjoy a down-home, Southern barbecue.
When an activity-filled day comes to an end, retire home to any of three bedrooms, which offer sleeping accommodations for up to six guests. Deep, restful sleep is all but guaranteed in king beds in two bedrooms and a queen bed in the third bedroom. Bedroom amenities include televisions, deck access, and large picture windows.
Wake with a fresh cup of coffee in the kitchen, then start planning a new day of adventures. Grab a crisp pair of clothes out of the washer/dryer, then connect to the WiFi to make your plans. Interested in some day trips? Lace up your hiking boots and head to the trails at Unicoi State Park, or snap photos of cascading waterfalls at Anna Ruby Falls.
You could also rent a canoe, kayak, or inner tube to float down the Chattahoochee River, or head into Helen's German-inspired downtown for a day of small-town sightseeing. The area also features acclaimed wineries, zipline adventure parks, and historic landmarks...so get out there and explore!
