About Linda or Jay Jones
I've gradually become a veteran at renting cabins, and nowadays I can usually recognize a legitimate inquiry from that of a disinterested net surfer, even before I answer a query. Basically, an interested person doesn't usually (but not always) file an inquiry; they actually look at the available information and I get a reservation request, instead of an inquiry. Over 98% of inquiries result in no booking! I can, with great accuracy now, spot a Ukrainian imposter (I've had seven so far) trying to scam me, just by the nature of the inquiry and the e-mail address they use, plus the fact the don't want to use a credit card, but instead want to pay with a cashier's check (beware of these--they are by far the easiest form of payment to counterfeit, and I followed one scammer all the way through to the check, which my banker found out was worthless in plenty of time!). I'm a native Georgian, born, raised, and educated in the State, and I've been a housewife most of my years (though I have a college degree and taught English in high school for a number of years). My husband and I are now retired and look forward to shepherding this cabin like it is home. We've stayed in it and we believe it is the best on the market for the price. Its name says it all! We've rented the adjacent sister property, Cozy Nook, on numerous occasions, and after we discovered this amazingly secret and select property we never rented a cabin in a crowded development elsewhere. We loved that cabin so much we inquired as to whether the owner would sell it, and to our surprise it was available, as was this cabin we're calling "Seclusion." For a couple alone, we recommend our other property, Cozy Nook (VRBO #750372); for two couples or a small family, Seclusion is the place to rent, and it is certainly also a bargain for a single couple that wants a king bed.

Why Linda or Jay Jones chose Sautee Nacoochee
It's all about "seclusion" and privacy. I've stayed in numerous cabins all over North America and even in many other countries, and most never live up to their billing. Most are jammed with others into a small space so you can hear (and often see) everything that goes on in the adjacent ones. This cabin is totally different, in that only with difficulty can one even see another cabin from it, and it is surrounded by some of the thickest woods one can imagine. If privacy is what you seek, this is the place for one or two couples, or for a family of three or four.
What makes this Cabin unique
These would include recent remodeling and refurbishing, new gravel parking area, improvements to privacy screens (just in case some stranger wanders to where they shouldn't be), new televisions, several pieces of new furniture, 65-channel cable television service, new mattresses and one new bed, addition of Wi-Fi services, a new outdoor fire pit for those inclined to use it, isolation despite nearness to area attractions, and year-round fun in the area. LIKE A WOOD-BURNING FIREPLACE? Many cabins don't have them because they're expensive to build and even more expensive to maintain. Often the property will show a photo of a fireplace, but never mention in the description whether it burns wood or is either gas logs (some heat) or electric heat (totally fake fireplace, no heat, just light effect). HERE IS A HUGE TIP IF YOU CAN'T FIND OUT IN THE DESCRIPTION: Look at the interior photos of the cabin, and if the television is ABOVE the fireplace, you can be sure it doesn't burn wood. The rising heat makes such a position for the television totally unfeasible. So if you see this and you want a real fireplace, move on to the next cabin on the list. It's not what you're looking for! Both our cabins (750370 and 750372) have totally refurbished wood burning fireplaces, done at a cost of $5,000 each. So with us, you're getting the real deal. And we supply our guests the name and phone number of a local guy who will deliver all the wood you need to keep your winter cabin warm and cozy, and at half the price the Helen convenience stores and other businesses charge.

Enjoyed it very much!
My boyfriend and I wanted to start an annual trip for our anniversary and decided to go to this sweet little cabin for our second anniversary trip! The cabin was very nice and clean. The hot tub was amazing at night time and we enjoyed grilling on the provided grill! I would recommend this cabin because of it being close to Helen but far enough away to where you are not crowded by neighbors (there are 3 cabins surrounding the cabin but not to close to where you don't have privacy. We will be visiting again over the next few years.
Everything was as described. Cabin was clean and comfy. There was an issue with the code being refused at the front door lock our last night, but the housekeeper drove out and got us back in. We only wished we could have stayed longer.
Adorable, Cozy, and Clean!
This cabin was adorable, cozy, and clean! The location is very convenient. It’s only a few miles from downtown Helen and Unicoi Park. When you rent the cabin, the owners give you access to their website which is filled with a wealth of information about attractions and restaurants to visit in Helen and surrounding towns. They also attach short videos describing each place. This is extremely helpful if you are not familiar with Helen or some of the other hidden gems in the area. The owners also provide a complimentary bottle of wine upon request. It was chilled and waiting when we arrived. What a treat!!! We would definitely rent this cabin again!!
Quiet and secluded. Away from everything. Perfect size.
The one thing that I really didn’t like was we paid a $100 cleaning fee but yet had a list a mile long of stuff to clean before we left. Strip beds, gather towels wash and put up all dishes. Sweep and vacuum. Take out the trash. Had to be out by 10 am so it made the morning hectic.
I needed a quiet get away. This cabin was perfect.. I could just lounge around the cabin or run around Helen.
Relaxing, home and calm.
Home owner was great in letting us know about property. I felt like she was letting us come over to visit them.
Three miles from downtown Helen, but feels like this one-bedroom or two-bedroom rustic cabin is totally isolated, the perfect place for a romantic getaway with little to no possibility of unwanted visitors, traffic, or noise. Property is located in deep rhododendron forest at the very end of private road, the highest point on the entire property, and is snuggled up to many thousands of acres of the Chattahoochee National Forest for maximum privacy. Spa area of deck is covered, deck totally secure from prying eyes. A well-accommodated full bath serves the downstairs bedroom, which has a wonderful queen mattress and a television. The upstairs bedroom has a brand new king bed and mattress, with its own private bathroom facility. Enjoy finest relaxation and privacy, so romantic that you may not want to even leave the cabin. But remember that numerous activities abound in Unicoi State Park (fishing in numerous well-stocked area trout streams, beach, lake, boating, stunning Ana Ruby Falls farther up in national forest) and nearby Bavarian-themed Alpine Helen (great restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions, river tubing, golfing, canoeing and kayaking, horseback riding, etc). For the more adventurous, numerous walking trails are in the area, including the nearby segment of the famous Appalachian Trail, which crosses Highway 75/17 at Unicoi Gap a few miles from the cabin.
