Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-10)
The owner of this house grew up hiking in the Georgia mountains with her parents who taught her a love of nature's gifts. So she wanted to create a place where nature is center stage. As a licensed professional landscape architect and artist, she has used her skills in planning this house's location and design. She also has a home in Naples Florida which is a walk to the beach so between the two places she's really enjoying the best of life. She's very excited to offer what she has so enjoyed to others in this newly finished home.
Owner purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2010
Why Owner chose Sautee Nacoochee
I have owned this property for 25 years and grown to know and love all it's features over that time. The area is perfect. Sautee is so close to Helen and has grown to become a center of history, the arts, and culture in recent years. I feel the presence of history in the land here. The spirit and evidence of the Cherokee Indians are all around us here as well as those of the early settlers. This is a place where time does not whizz by and I feel connected to what is eternal. What more can I say than that.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
When I am here for a few days something unwinds in me. My senses become more aware. My eye's and ears become sensitized to the subtle beauties and music of nature. Also I begin to feel a connection to the land in a deep way that fills me with peace.

Beautiful location and perfect for the getaway we envisioned.
The property is very private up a long dirt road. The view out back was gorgeous. I loved it and so did my dog! The house was very clean and comfy. We were 10 minutes from downtown Helen. The place was perfect for us. I will definitely be back
The house was perfect for our family getaway. Close to Helen, easy open spaces for board games!
So glad you enjoyed it. Look forward to your return.
Very nice property. Would likely stay again.
Our stay was wonderful. GPS lead the way up the gravel round directly to the house with no problem. Upon arrival, everything was a breeze. Entry instructions were fast and convenient. The house is exactly as advertised. The scenery is breathtaking. We had breakfast on the back patio every morning. Fire pit was a nice touch for night time entertainment.
The house is in Sautee Nacoochee. It took us 15 minutes to drive into downtown Helen. The scenic drive is lovely and time passed quickly. Nearest grocery store is Betty’s in downtown Helen. It had everything we needed to cook. Wasted some time trying to find a grocery store, we ended up picking some basics up at the Dollar General in Helen. Next day we found Betty’s Grocery Store. It’s a small town so I should have know chain supermarkets weren’t nearby. Betty’s has everything.
Unicoi State Park was less than 10 minute drive. We went kayaking on the lake, had a picnic near the little beach area while the kids swam and played as well as visited Ana Ruby Falls. It was a half mile walk up to the falls, not bad. Cool River Tubing was fun. I recommend getting the river stick to navigate. We went tubing twice. Muller’s Fried Cheese Cafe had the best authentic German food. We had a chicken schnitzel meal here that was delicious. No alcohol is served at Mullers but if you want authentic this places food tasted just like my friends homemade German food. We also had lunch at Troll Restaurant/Bar. Delicious Fried Ruben sandwich and got to see the tubers down the river. Atmosphere was amazing! The house was outside of Helen and for us that was perfect. We enjoyed leaving Downtown Helen after the day driving through the peaceful scenery and having a house to stay in nestled in the woods overlooking the mountain range.
Thanks for such a thoroughly great review. Looks like you hit some of the high spots. There are lots more to enjoy. Next time you can add to your list of favorites! 😊
Wonderful retreat for my family
We had a most wonderful time at this cabin, which is actually more spacious than it looks like from the outside. The design of the rooms is aesthetically pleasing and includes original art by the owner. Having breakfast on the deck outside gave us a spectacular view of the mountains. The natural setting is made for hiking and we hiked up the Anna Ruby Falls and Unicoi State Park with our our grandchildren, 3 and 6 years old. We also enjoyed grilling on the barbecue grill and making s’mores in the fire pit. We highly recommend it and plan to come back next year.
Thank you for such a nice review! I am so glad you enjoyed your time there with your grandchildren!
