Brew a pot of coffee or prepare a big meal while chatting with friends sitting along the kitchen counter. This kitchen is absolutely stunning with the granite counter-tops and tile backsplash. It is also stocked with all the cookware, dinnerware, flatware and cooking utensils you will need! The dining area is perfect for sharing a meal around the large table.
Everyone is sure to enjoy the fine decorated living room with a curved flat screen television hanging above the gas fireplace. The sliding glass doors lead from the living room to the upper wrap-around deck and an amazing panoramic view of the mountains.
Kids, both big and small, will enjoy the game room downstairs. There is a Foosball table, as well as a pool table that can be turned into a ping pong table in a matter of minutes. The game room features a large flat screen television for that special sporting event or family movie night.
There is no reason to climb up and down the stairs for refreshments with a kitchenette located right there in the game room! Step outside the game room onto the lower deck of the cabin. Here you will find a gas grill and a large hot tub. All you have to do is relax and watch the sun go down over the mountains!
Once you settle into Paradise Retreat, you may not want to leave. Should you decide to venture out, Alpine Helen is only a few miles away, as are local wineries, antique shops and more. This cabin is located on a gravel road.

The cabin was great and the views of mountains were great. However, the Internet connection and WiFi were terrible. Don't expect to be able to stream any movies or shows. Other than that, the cabin was great.
Thanks for your review and we are so glad you enjoyed the property. I'm surprised to hear about your experience with WiFi. We have not had a complaint about that. We encourage guests to let us know if they have any concerns, as we did when we made the courtesy call, at which time no problems were reported.
Great experience! Views are fantastic and the cabin is well appointed and spacious!
Thanks for sharing your experience!
Had family members in for my son’s June 3rd wedding in
The entire process from start to finish was flawless.
Thank you for the great experience
We appreciate your feedback!
It was breathtaking. We really enjoyed our stay here in this cabin. The drive up is a little scary but we’ll worth it.
Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!
Great house. Would definitely stay here again. Had everything could need. Great view. Great location.
It's great to hear you enjoyed the stay enough to want to come back! We do have a repeat guest discount. Just call us and remind us you stayed and we will take 10% off the rent portion of the reservation!
Wonderful Place - everything we were looking for. Beautiful home, great view, no issues of any sort.
We thank you for staying with us and hope to see you in the future.
Excellent place, a spectacular view, clean an very cozy. Highly recommended.
So glad you enjoyed the property and view! Come back when you can.
We had a blast as well as relaxed and enjoyed God beautiful creation
Paradise Retreat is great for all this - glad you enjoyed the amenities and the view!
The cabin was as beautiful as described,it's warm and inviting and the views from the bedrooms and balconies...wonderful! The tracks for sliding doors NEED to be cleaned and it was a little dusty under the loveseat, we dropped something and when we looked for it we found more trash underneath :-( 'easy fix' The weather was great to open doors, but the screens really need replacing, bugs came in with the breeze. A broken shade/blind needs to be replaced the afternoon sun makes dinner prep a pain. The most unpleasant thing for us was the parking,the steep incline was scary to us being from Fla flat lands :) The customer service was THE BEST!! this is coming from one who worked in the field.Polite courteous and most helpful 5 stars! for each and every rep I spoke with. Now Hal, our maintenance guy so friendly... we all enjoyed him as well.We did venture into town and enjoyed a carriage ride and pub very nice.Yes we'd likely come again and highly recommend family and friends to come enjoy as we did a little retreat in Paradise.
Thank you so much for you staying with us. We so appreciate the items you mentioned and will be addressing them. Hope to see you in the future. NIta
This was an amazing place for 5 couples to get together and give me the best 40th bday. The cabin was beautiful and the views are unreal. It’s is on a bumpy road so definitely go up before dark the first time. Not far from Helen. The cabin has everything we could possibly need and more. The memories made we can’t thank you enough for. We will definitely be going back. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place. Oh and the management company was great. The called to check on us the next day to make sure our stay was going well. When I called about something they were quick and responsive and followed up the next day.
Wonderful 4 day stay at Paradise Retreat!!. The view from the top of the back deck was one of the very best and we made it just in time to see every fall color!!
The property itself is very nice. Perfect location & great views. The house is beautiful & well furnished. The maintenance did not meet our expectations. The fireplace didn't work when we arrived. The pilot was out. They guy came & put it back on & it went out again. I called & they never came back. We really would have liked a working fireplace but it was useless. They said it turns off when it gets too hot. I have had gas fireplaces & they usually have a remote to start & they do not turn off after just a few minutes of fire. There was a water leak in the downstairs bedroom & the guys solution was to bring some old towels to soak up the water. The leak had been there a while as the wood was stained. The hot tub cover had a coating of scum on it & smelled like mildew. There was no bar to lift it so we had to take off completely & put back. This was a surprise to the maintenance man. There was only 1 dish towel provided, no pot holders & no laundry soap. We ran out of dishwasher pellets, trash bags & toilet paper. We asked for them to be brought up but they did not bring them. We bought toilet paper but improvised with the other items. Hand washing dishes. We flew in from FL. The directions were bad because they told us not to rely on GPS & to follow Rt 75. There was a Rt 75 from the airport but not the same Rt 75 and we went way out of our way before realizing we were heading away from Helen. They need to make clear that those directions are local only & we did need our GPS from the airport. The internet, Netflix & Prime were not available on the downstairs TV which is the largest TV for watching movies. It seems that TV is not connected to the internet at all yet all the apparatus is right there indicating it should be. We would not go back to this property based on the issues we had. They are all related to property management not the owners of the property.
We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.
The rental was amazing. Absolutely beautiful location. Amazing views. Could not have asked for a better vacation. Cannot thank georgia mountain rentals enough. Will absolutely use them for the rest of our vacation plans.
The house has a great layout. Our family could all be together yet have enough privacy. The house is well-appointed and kitchen was equipped. The house was clean, however there were a few repairs needed but they did not affect our stay. I do wish the grass had been cut. Beautiful views, comfortable, and plenty to do. The property mgmt company was excellent.
It was awesome. The cabin was beautiful and clean. We had an awesome time. However we really couldn't enjoy the deck because there were Bees flying around, so there must be a nest nearby. And there's a leg on 1 chair thar loose. However we had a ball.
Cabin was great, plenty of space and a good view. Location was a little out of the way but a lot of space to roam and climb the mountain! Would recommend the driveway be paved. Our family get together was awesome and appreciated the friendly and helpful staff.
Cabin was in a beautiful setting. Cabin and its' decor were beautiful. Cabin appeared clean on first impression but upon further inspection was found to be infested with mice. Air ducts were in some cases filled with insulation. Mouse droppings in kitchen cabinets and toaster. Kitchen cabinets were grimy. We washed every kitchen item prior to use because of mouse droppings. Sliding door tracks looked as if they have never been cleaned. Ceiling fans and windows need cleaning. Mice in HVAC ducts and/or walls terrified our children at night.
Very nice cabin, exceptional views. Highly recommended.
The bones and views of the cabin are great! There’s lots of space for large groups/families and a fun game room.
The kitchen was a disaster. Silverware and cooking utensils were very disorganized and messy. Cabinets smelled of stale oil. The cabin as a whole needed to be dusted and cleaned much better than it had been before we arrived.
The internet and TV options were also very bad. I know that’s not what most go on vacation for but it was difficult just to find something to watch before bed or during a rainy day (not even local channels).
We had a great time but I probably wouldn’t stay here again.
I had a amazing time at this location. It was clean (very important to me) and they went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed. The views were absolutely amazing. There was a enough space for my family to enjoy our time together, yet have private time to read a book or simply sleep.
The directions were difficult. Would have been nice to get some written directions since GPS is so wacky. the roads there weren't too bad for my minivan to handle either so that was nice. The cabin is big and the furniture is great! It was also very clean. We enjoyed the big dining table and the game room. The view is incredible but the sun is kinda an issue. You can't really enjoy the top deck from 1:00 PM - sunset because it faces west gets hot and hurts your eyes. Would have been nice to have maybe an umbrella or you can enjoy the bottom deck and bring sunglasses! The hot tub was BIG and HOT but it was DIRTY and the lid lifter was broken so the lid was off by 6 inches. The water had a film and filmy bubbles and a smell so we didn't use it after that first time. The filter that floats in it was all brown. yuck. The hot tub is positioned right where everyone driving by the cabin can see you so not private at all. Maybe add a blind? The kitchen was stocked well with plenty of things to cook and eat with. I thought I saw a K-cup but when we got there it was a regular coffee pot. People need to know this so they can bright the right kind of coffee. coffee is so important! The beds are so comfy and the pillows are great! There are lots of extra pillows but we didn't see any extra pillowcases. There were plenty of towels and washcloths, TP and trashbags so thanks for that! The dishwasher worked great and so did the oven, microwave, and fridge. The TV worked good too!
Absolutely incredible home with amazing views! We will be going back to this one for sure!
This was our first visit and first time going through this rental company and we could not be more pleased. This place is amazing and close to everything you need while also having perfect views.
Chad, I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay!
We loved the house, but it needs some maintenance. Close to town and many other things.
We traveled from Mich to Georgia for a family wedding. This house also made it a great vacation. Eight were in the home and we had plenty of room to get ready for the wedding. Many kitchen items for all our needs. Great beds, furniture and a great game room. Breathtaking views. The town of Helen was fun to walk around. All TVs and the WIFI worked great. Very warm home for the cold mountain air outside. Hot tub was great. Very nice furniture outside. Plenty of room for 8 adults. The house layout gave all of us plenty of privacy. The drive up the mountain was awesome. You knew you were in the mountains. It was more than I expected. We all loved it.
Great house. We had no problems the weekend we stayed here. We love Georgia Mountain Rentals.
Amanda, thank you for choosing GMR as your vacation host. We will look forward to you staying again soon!
We had a great time. The cabin was everything we expected and more! The view was gorgeous. The kitchen had more than enough to accommodate all 7 of us.
Thank you, David!
The location of the cabin was perfect. Not too far from town but also seclusion added. It fit my family very nicely and the views were breathtaking. The cabin was very clean and felt very welcoming. The staff followed up after check in and it means a lot to know they care for you and your family’s needs. The only downside was the water pressure being low in the bathrooms. The upside though were the modern appliances and outstanding bathroom finishes! The family is already ready for our next stay! Best cabin in Helen.
I apologize that you experienced low water pressure. Any time you stay in the future and have any issues please give us a call. Thank you for your wonderful review.
My husband and I spent a week there in June with our two children and spouses and our four grandchildren. Everyone loved the spacious house and gorgeous view. All of the management staff were very responsive.
With the few small issues we had, they were on top of them immediately.
The house was very clean and well maintained. We were attending a famly reunion with 45 relatives, many also staying with Georgia Mountain Rentals and very happy with their housing. We found hiking trails that met all levels and enjoyed tubing down the river. The location was a little remote, but that was not a problem. We would definitely recommend Georgia Mountain Rentals and Paradise Retreat to our friends. It was a memorable vacation that we will never forget.
We so appreciate your review and the ability to host your stay and others. It is always a reward in itself when our guest is satisfied with their vacations. We hope to host you for many years to come!
The cabin was absolutely gorgeous!! Extremely clean. Our only issues were with the road leading to the cabin and the hot tub. The road really needs to be paved. It has rained a lot and was very slick. And even though the hot tub was covered it was only by a deck so it rained through.We got this cabin was for the hot tub because we knew it was going to rain. My kids were very disappointed with not being able to use it during the rain.
Even with the rain one day, we had a great stay. Loved everything about this cabin.
we had a great time during our stay. our vacation rental was great and very spacious. we ate @ Big Daddy's, Mully's Nacoochee Grill, Nacoochee Village Tavern & Pizzeria. we visited Anna Ruby Falls, played laser tag,rode go karts. we had a blast eploring the city of Helen & doing things.
Thank you we so appreciate you staying with us. Hope to see you in the future. Wishing you a wonderful 2019 Nita Decker
We all had a great trip filled with togetherness while hiking to waterfalls, shopping in Helen, ziplining through the woods, and cooking together. We visited Anna Ruby Falls, Helen, Sunburst Ziplining, The Troll Tavern, and Bigg Daddy's restaurant. We cooked out, relaxed, played pool and foosball, and some of us used the hot tub. We all enjoyed the views! The weather was perfect! We've talked about returning again for another trip.
Great place for a gathering for a big family. Relaxing and fun. Everyone had fun playing pool, getting in the jaccuzi and enjoying the views. Lots of views from the porches and windows. I didn't sleep very well because I forgot my pillow from home -my bed and pillow were not very comfortable but no one else in the family had the same experience.
Wonderful family weekend, spacious cabin with outstanding views!
The cabin was delightful with lots of little added touches. The place was beautiful and the rooms comfortable.
The eight of us had a lovely time reconnecting with old friends and making new memories. The lodge was clean, comfortable, and perfect for our large group. We could sit together on the large deck (love the rockers!), or find a quiet place to be alone. GMR were attentive without intrusion, and very friendly. The kitchen was well equipped and large enough for several cooks to work together. We were close enough to the state park to enjoy a short hike, and then on to Helen for a great lunch and stroll around town. We were very lucky with spectacular weather, but had it rained there were several TVs, movies, games, books and the hottub to keep any large group busy. We are already thinking about a return visit!
We rented this property so that we could have multiple families in one spot. This cabin more than exceeded our expectations.
Overall a really nice place to stay.
