***Welcome to Sky Lake Treasure Retreat & Resort***

This cabin offers the best of all worlds. It is located in the mountains, is on the lake, and is surrounded by beautiful hiking trails. The Hiking Trail and Lake are 200 feet from the cabin. This cabin sits in its own private wooded area, yet it is in a gated community offering all of the amenities.

See the Restaurant & Activity Guide, just below the Map, to find Everything you are Looking for including Sautee, Helen, and all types of North Georgia fantasy Vacation Fun.

As you enter the cabin it will magically unfold layer by layer as you introduce yourself to each element of this spacious mountain vacation treasure.

You will be living large with the huge great room, 4 huge bedrooms, and 2 decks facing the lake.

Like the forest...As soon as you walk out of the back door you will find yourself landing on the manicured hiking trail circling the lake, and forking off into streams & waterfalls. You have 12 miles of hiking adventure at your finger tips.

What's Here?

Contained within Sky Lake are our common amenities, including a clubhouse, a community pool with cabana and sundeck, four lighted tennis courts, sheltered master barbeque area, community postal center, horse barn, maintenance barn, dedicated parking for boats, trailers and RVs, and a rustic picnic area close by our scenic York Falls. And of course there are our two private lakes, Sky Lake and Sautee Lake, about 20 and 10 acres respectively, that offer fishing and boating.

Scattered throughout Sky Llake’s 1,360 total acreage are nearly 400 acres of natural greenbelt containing over 12 miles of hiking trails maintained by a volunteer trail committee. The trails meander over varied terrain through wooded forest, open pasture, and along running streams, waterfalls and lakes. Amid the natural beauty of the dedicated greenbelt, which Sky Lake considers a self-designated nature preserve, one can often encounter a variety of wildlife: whitetail deer, wild turkeys, a resident flock of Canada geese, pileated woodpeckers, raccoons, foxes, hawks, and the occasional coyote and black bear.

Don't forget the fabulous fun in the City of Helen.

Fantastic Dream of a Place & Totally Refreshing

  • 5 of 5

As we drove in the first thing we saw was a herd of deer grazing by the green roadside. When we entered the cabin on the ground floor there was a large bedroom with a nice bathroom. The only other room on that floor was a laundry room. We walked upstairs and the whole place opened up. The living room was huge and beautiful. There are windows and views everywhere. The kitchen has everything that anybody could possibly need. We went all out with steaks on the grill, and lobsters in the pot. All of the bedrooms were large and also had several windows. There was a master bedroom on the main floor not too far from the living room. Venturing upstairs, to the third floor, are two more bedrooms with a bathroom between them. It was almost like each floor was a little apartment. It was an unusual layout, and we really liked it. We enjoyed the older furnishings giving the home a warm cozy feeling even though it was so big. It was too warm to use the fireplace, but it was a piece of art to enjoy in the center of the picture window facing the lake. The wet bar was on the back living room wall which was great for making our morning smoothies and our evening cocktails. We enjoyed dining on the deck and in the kitchen. You can see the lake and the hiking trail from the deck. Our dog loved walking the trails. The home was very clean and my wife is neurotic about cleaning. It passed her test. We thought everything was beautiful inside and outside. We spent a lot of time hiking around the lake, went to see the horses, and played tennis. We had a lot of fun, and it was the most refreshing and peaceful place to rest our souls. All of our group gave everything 5 stars. Thank you for sharing your lovely place with us, and we will surely be back.

Older Home, needs Some Love.

  • 2 of 5

The House could be Beautiful, it is a Older Home very Well built. The Bed on the Main Floor needs to be Raised Above the Water Bed Frame, VERY Hard to get Out of. The Windows in the Living Room & Kitchen were Dirty, some of it was from the Inside & Some was Outside. Not Sure if that is Housekeepings Job or Not. It Would be nice if Blinds were hung in the Living Room, no Privacy. I have Read many of the Reviews, doesn't Seem like the Commits are taken a Look at, cause the Same thing Keeps coming Up. This Pretty House Needs Attention to Detail. White toilet seat on Black Toilet, Dirty Windows, Bed on Main Level, Privacy Blinds. Basement was Very Cold & Musty Damp Smell. I Hope these things Get Looked into!! Have a Blessed Day.

Owner's Response: Hi Debra, Thank you for being our guest. Yes the owners are following the cabin. They have tackled many projects. The cabin was closed down all fall as they had 3 new decks & a new front porch built. Prior to you checking-in a new dishwasher & dryer were installed, and recently the refrigerator was replaced. The have had a new bathroom put in downstairs. Many previous items mentioned have been resolved or upgraded, and there are still many more to go. It still needs work, and has come a long way. It is an older Beautiful Lake & Mountain Cabin, and the owners continue to upgrade as they can. I hope you had a good time. Blessings, Pam Love

Our family has stayed here before, and it provides space, accessibility, and a lovely view.

  • 4 of 5

We will certainly utilize the accommodations again. However, might we recommend lighting upgrades? The few lamps provide very little light, & there needs to be light over kitchen bar counter. Lack of lighting was frustrating. Love,love the bathroom upgrade on the terrace level!! Carpet upgrade is also recommended. Strawberry Patch is great though!

Beautiful home and host!

We loved our stay here! Yes the house is a little old but in no way is it dirty. There is a trail and lake few feet away. Overall, good place to stay. Pam is a great host

A cabin with character

  • 4 of 5

My family and I loved our relaxing weekend at Sky Lake Retreat. The cabin was clean and spacious. If you like a home with a vibe all it's own, then you'll love this retreat. Pam and Tracy where both very pleasant and accommodating. We will definitely be staying here again, sooner rather than later.

Very spacious and met our needs

  • 4 of 5

Even though the cabin needed some maintenance and updating it was clean and met all our needs. The bed that is inside the waterbed frame needs a box spring underneath. Very hard and uncomfortable. The place was huge and we laughed about getting lost. We really enjoyed our stay. Can't wait to see the new updates and repairs.
