Sweet Retreat is perfect if you are looking for a quiet and private get-a-way. The kitchen is fully stocked for everything you may need to cook with. The living room has a cute love seat and chair that sits right in front of the gas fireplace for you to enjoy in the cooler months. The 42" flat screen is above the fire place and perfectly located so if you are sitting in the living room or laying in the comfortable log queen size bed (with memory foam topper) you can enjoy a movie or just watch some TV. Upstairs you have a full size bath.
The kitchen area has a table w/ chairs for 4. Right off the living room you can go outside onto the over sized upper deck and enjoy the view of Mt. Yonah. If you enjoy grilling then you can cook on the gas grill and while you are waiting for the food to get done you can enjoy the scenery while rocking in the rockers.There is a patio set out on the patio for you to eat at when you food is done so you don't have to go inside and loose your views and your peace and quiet. Sweet Retreat is a heavily wooded lot with plenty of privacy. Once you go downstairs you will see an amazing comfortable king size bed with memory foam topper. I promise once you get in bed you will never want to get out. You also have a large 36" TV in case you don't want to go upstairs and watch tv. There is also a full bath down stairs for your convenience. If this has not convinced you to book your reservations now then how does a huge hot tub on the private patio overlooking the amazing views sound? There is also a pool table downstairs if you like to have a little fun at home.
Keep in mind the many places to see and activities offered in Helen that are close by. A few places to visit while you are in Helen is Sautee Nacoochee and when you are here make sure you stop by the Old Sautee Store, built in 1873. The entrance is like a museum and everything remains in the store as it was when it closed down in the early 1900's. More modern items and gifts available in the new addition of the store that is in the back. Travel the Georgia Wine Hwy. Take in the Gold Rush town of Dahlonega with just about a 30 minute drive. Of course, Anna Ruby Falls and Unicoi State park are just a 10 miles drive or so to the North side of Helen. There are many water falls in the area including one called Dry Falls, just inside the N.C line. This one is unique in that you can walk behind the waterfall under the rock overhang. Beautiful site! Take time to visit Smithgall Woods and Tallulah Gorge and walk across the swing bridge. Brasstown Bald is the highest point in Georgia. Beautiful!
We have provided a complete Picnic Pack for your convenience that is located in the cabin. Take this along with you for the day and enjoy the beautiful sites that the North Georgia Mountains have to offer. Check out georgiatrails com for more suggestions of places to see. You'll want to return for many years to come, as many of our guest do....Read more
""Sweet Retreat" is a fitting title for this place!"

We just returned home from our little retreat here and we are so excited about returning already!
The owner has arranged it, decorated it and furnished it to the extent that when you walk in the door, the whole place says, "welcome! Now that you're here - no worries!"
And that is exactly what we experienced here - no worries. Any guest here would not have to worry about forgetting anything from home except the food! This cabin is just enough off the beaten path that you feel you are in a quiet and peaceful place, yet town is just down the road. I am in school and studying hard. This was my Spring Break and I wanted to get out of my normal routine and away from home, so this is where we went. I continued to study, but the peaceful environment allowed me to "enjoy" studying! We have already told our friends and relatives about this place and we will return! Thank you for your thoughtfulness in making this little cabin so beautiful and welcoming!
Thank you so much and thank you for taking the time to email me. We look forward to your return visit.

"Sweet Retreat perfect name for this cabin"

We stayed in this cabin from Oct 14th to the 17th and had a wonderful time. We were looking for a getaway from the craziness of life and that's exactly what we found in this wonderful cabin. The many personnel touches were so nice we immediately felt at home. Only a short drive to Helen which we so enjoyed seeing. Thank you so much for giving us exactly what we were looking for on our getaway.
You are very kind to take the time to submit a review for us! Thank you. We are always very pleased to hear when guest enjoy our cabin as much as we do. Please make time to return.

We had a great stay at Sweet Retreat. Rustic looking from the outside, but cozy on the inside. The coffee and supplies were a nice touch to start the morning off with. The cabin was located between Helen and Cleveland which made it accessible to lots of activities. We walked the roads with our dog, CC, (thanks for allowing her)and saw several deer every time. Thanks for a great visit.
