We stayed at Rustic Elegance for 4 nights after Christmas. I HIGHLY recommend this cabin if your are staying near Helen GA. The cabin has a great layout and the bedrooms are large. This cabin has everything you need to enjoy your stay. We had family rent a different cabin a mile away and it was cheap looking inside and the layout was terrible... They were jealous that we had a better cabin. We also enjoyed horseback riding at Chattanooga Stables. We had a great stay and the next time we are in Helen we will rent this cabin again.

Beautiful home to spend Christmas at! We enjoyed the hot tub and fireplace. The pool table was a big hit. Beautiful setting fully furnished. We will be back!
Kelley - Tifton, Ga - Stayed: December 2014
Beautiful, very well appointed mountain home. We kept the fireplace and slow cooker going and relaxed before tackling the holiday hustle and bustle. We will definitely return next year. Loved the pool table!
Ocean Isle Beach, NC Stayed: December 2014
We stayed here for only a couple days in mid-October but we really enjoyed the cabin. It was very clean and warm & cozy; it had everything that was listed on the website and more. There were only two of us that stayed there but we felt as if it would have been more fun if we had a couple more people to enjoy it with. It had three master bedrooms with king size beds and three bathrooms, definitely a great place to spend with family or a group of friends. With so many cabin rental choices in that area, it’s hard to choose one, but for us, working with the homeowner made the experience so easy and it was a pleasant surprise to have everything run so smoothly. Off of that experience alone, I would recommend staying at this cabin.

Stayed at this beautiful home in October. The place was fabulous. There were three couples and the layout worked great for us. No fighting over who gets the king size bed. The beds were spectacular. I highly recommend "Rustic Elegance".
Kathy G - Florida Stayed: October 2014
We spent four nights in the "Rustic Elegance" starting October 26, 2014. We shared the cabin with another couple. The cabin is beautiful and very private. We cooked 3 meals and had everything we needed in the kitchen. The front and back porches were great as well as the screened in porch. The hot tub was wonderful. We only used the two bedrooms downstairs. None of us was interested in climbing stairs so this worked out fine. The beds were very comfortable and each couple had a private bath. I would highly recommend this property. The leaves had just begun falling so the color in the woods around the cabin and throughout the area was breath taking.

Cranberry in Atlanta, GA - Stayed: July 2014
The Rustic Elegance is a great place to escape to. The owner has gone beyond the call of duty to ensure you have everything you need for your stay. You can take in the sights, hike, swim or fish or stay in cabin and just rest. We have been two times now and we will return. Stayed: June 2014 Nice, clean house! Great location. Very convenient using the back entrance in and out. Have to check in at the front main entrance, but can borrow the house gate key rest of time going in and out. Very clean and comfortable. Well stocked kitchen. Would return if in the area again.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Rustic Elegance! There were three couples, and it was nice that no couple had to sacrifice comfort while others had better sleeping arrangements. It was great that we all had a king size bed and our own bathroom. The cabin itself is beautiful! We had fun cooking meals together and eating at the big table. We also enjoyed the hot tub all three nights we were there. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations! We will definitely recommend this location and would also stay here again!
Jim and Missy in Warner Robins, GA, - Stayed: June 2014
Our group of eight (two families) loved Rustic Elegance. It was perfect. It is very convenient to Helen, Cleveland, and surrounding mountain towns. It is located next to Unicoi State Park. We hiked up to Anna Ruby Falls, visited the Babyland Hospital in Cleveland, drove over to Dillard and Tallulah Falls, and visited a gold mine in Dahlonega. The house itself was perfect to come back home to every afternoon. We cooked most breakfast and dinner meals in the gourmet kitchen. We loved the kitchen and wish we had one like it at home. The kids loved the pool table and we all loved the hot tub. There is a wide selection of games and movies. We found enough to do to keep the kids off of the phones and iPods. The beds were very comfortable. Even though other houses are nearby, there is plenty of privacy. The other houses are barely visible through the woods. There are only three steps into the house so it would be very accessible by someone that has trouble with stairs. We would definitely consider staying there again if we go back.

Mother's Day Retreat
Rustic Elegance provided a relaxing environment for what was the first Mother's Day for one guest, and the second Mother's Day for another. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was exactly as described...actually better than described. The screened-in porch was the perfect seat for having a cup of coffee while watching the rain fall. Loved the endless DVD collection (like having our own video store) and the plethora of board game options! The drive into town was quick and convenient. We visit Helen every year to tube, but have never stayed overnight. We are excited about the possibility of combining the two!

We loved this cabin! It was the
perfect place for our family
weekend trip to Helen!
Lee Anna Deal - Stayed: April 2014
This cabin was amazing. My wife and I stayed here with two other couples just as a get away and there was plenty of room. The cabin is very nice and clean. The three master rooms was great. Everything you may need was supplied in the cabin as far as kitchen supplies, pool table, games, movies, and a great location. This has to be the nicest cabin we have ever stayed in and will definitely be back. The owner was great to work with and very prompt in her response to any question we had. Thanks for a great get away!

March weekend in N. GA
We had a great experience at this rental. 3 couples, ample room and space for all. We enjoyed the kitchen, the hot tub, & the pool table. The rental was very clean and well-maintained and we liked the somewhat-secluded feel of it. Downtown Helen is not far and is quaint. The cabin is very near the Unicoi Forest, which was great for us as we're outdoor seekers. Would stay here again.
Jaime - Stayed: March 2014
What a beautiful home, so cozy,
comfortable and clean. Has
feeling of being secluded. Have
rented many private homes on
getaways and this has been the
nicest we have stayed at.

Great Getaway, Plenty of
Amenities, Super Clean!
We had a great time, and can't say enough about how well kept and clean the cabin was! Very enjoyable and nothing lacking here! Thanks so much for a perfect weekend! Hope to return soon!

An amazing place to stay!
We stayed here for the week or Christmas and had an amazing time. The cabin is beautiful and offers all the amenities of home. We could not have asked for a better place to spend our holiday. There was plenty of room and the décor was beautiful. It offered so many personal touches. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here and plan to stay again myself in the future!!
Nicole (Loxahatchee, FL) 12/21/13
This was our second time staying here. A place to relax and enjoy the fire. So many nice amenities in the home.

Great stay at Rustic Elegance
Great house. We were so impressed and pleased with everything! King size beds were comfy, hot tub was great, kitchen very well stocked. All the comforts of home. The best part was being able to have our dogs with us. We really appreciate dog friendly homes and did our best to leave the place as clean as we found it. I think the listing accurately described the property as well as the photos. There was lots to do close by and we enjoyed rides in the country. Visited the gourd museum and found it very interesting. We would return to this home.
Rustic Elegance- comfort cabin
Great cabin- great location- very comfortable- extremely clean.
Michelle W. (Charleston SC ) 10/17/13
We rented this house as part of a weekend trip for my wife's birthday, and to partake in Helen's annual Oktoberfest celebration. We arrived on Thursday evening, check-in at the gate was very easy and the house was in very good condition. Everything was clean, function, and very well decorated. Would definitely use the house again if we were in the area.
Douglas T. 10/10/13
This cabin was just perfect!! Enjoyed a fun girls weekend in Helen. The cabin was just what we all needed. So cozy and it felt like home. We really enjoyed the hot tub it was very relaxing. Everything was great. We will be using this rental again!! Oh and the owners were so nice to work with. : ))
Beth (Gainesville, Ga) 09/06/13
Great time, great cabin and
great city .
My wife and friends had a wonderful time staying in Rustic Elegance. It was a great cabin that was secluded enough for privacy and close enough to town to go to dinner and shop in all the fantastic stores. I would highly recommend this for a couple or any group that wants to get away and have a wonderful time in Helen, GA.
Bryan A. 08/29/13
Rustic Elegance was excellent.
The cabin was everything as
stated and pictured. The cabin
was very clean and will
maintained. We had no problems
with anything the entire week.
Owner was quite helpful
answering questions and
assisting us. Would certainly
recommend this property to
anyone and hope to get back
soon. Helen is very close by
with much to do, recommend river
tubing, zip lining, good
restaurants, and sightseeing. We
really enjoyed Innsbruck golf
course, it is beautiful, and fun
Bob (Hephzibah, Ga) 07/27/13
The cabin is very nice and is
equipped with everything you
need for an enjoyable stay. It
looks better than the pictures
indicate. We enjoyed sitting on
the back deck. It seems like you
are far away from town but Helen
is a short drive. We encountered
no problems with the rental.
We had a wonderful time at the
cabin. The home is beautiful and
had everything we could
need/want. Hot tub was great.
Very quiet and private location.
We really enjoyed our first stay
Hello Helen! Absolutely
Rustic Elegance has all the charm of a cabin in the woods, with the fit and feel of a contemporary home. The owners have thought of everything...and I mean everything. Just pack your clothes and come see for yourself. The neighbors were friendly, even the dog next door came by to greet us (probably more to see the mini schnauzer that was traveling with us :-). We ventured out to see some of the local attractions and visit a few if the local waterfalls. But, I must admit the best times were spent at the cabin, cooking and enjoying the "huge" TV and pitch perfect surround sound. Okay, maybe the jacuzzi too, oh..and the pool table. Can I just say, We Had A Great Time? Didn't make it to the golf course, but maybe next time! Thanks for sharing your home with us!!!
accommodations - best beds
I rented this cabin for my husband's 40th birthday celebration. We had 3 couples and we absolutely loved the cabin! It was even better than the photos and the description described. The hot tub was wonderful! The fireplace was wonderful and so enjoyable while we sat and watched television or sat in the dining room playing games! The beds however - were a real treat. Each couple commented on how comfortable they were after our first night. One of the most comfortable - if not the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The master bathroom is very spacious! The decor is really nice and made us feel comfortable. All of the cabinets in the kitchen were well stocked - plenty of dishes, utensils, glasses etc! Even wine glasses!! LeighAnne was very easy to work with via email and everything was perfect for this very special weekend! We will definitely return to Rustic Elegance again when we are in Helen! What a wonderful getaway in a fabulous cabin! Highly recommend to anyone staying in the area! And only 5 minutes from Helen and their lovely wineries (Helen Winery featuring Frogtown wines was our favorite!), food (Old Bavaria Inn, the bakery in town, Paul's Steakhouse, and Nacoochee Tavern & Grill - all great!), and tourist attractions. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home and making it so welcoming and comfortable!

The cabin my husband and I stayed in was beautifully located in mountains just as ad said. The home was beautifully furnished, convenient and clean. Very romantic setting. We had a wonderful time and will go again hopefully every year for anniversary. Mary Parker/Heath 2/18/13
The cabin was lovely. Rustic
elegance is the perfect name. My
friends and I had a very
relaxing time. We played cards,
enjoyed the hot tub and pool
table. The kitchen was ideal for
a large group of girls. We
started counting the bears in
the master bath, but soon
decided we were just to over
powered with all the bears. We
were not as adventurous as most
guest I'm quite sure. Would
go back to this cabin in a
minute. Thank you Leber's
for creating a wonderful quaint
Cathy Joyce 2/15/13
Great vacation spot!
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. There is so much to do and it was a great location- very close to a beautiful park. We would stay here again, and would not hesitate in recommending it to others!
Elizabeth Butler 2/1/13
We had 3 couples. There was no deciding who got the king bed b/c every bedroom got one!! All amenities were over the top, excellent. Games, DVDs, hot tub, pool table, down to every last thing you can think of in the kitchen. Everything was in great shape and wonderful!!
Erin King 1/19/13
A Charming Stay!
The owner of this property was extremely helpful and answered all of our questions prior to arrival. The cabin has everything you need, very spacious, and is even better than the pictures. We found the cabin to be heart-warming and nicely decorated with Christmas touches for the holidays. Our family stayed for the Thanksgiving weekend and truly enjoyed our mini-vacation and time together. The driveway is steep, but only adds to authenticity and beauty of staying in the mountains. A wonderful and charming stay! Thanks so much Leigh Anne.
Perfection! What a treasure!
Our group enjoyed Rustic Elegance - the spilt bedroom plan and each room having a bathroom worked out perfectly for having your own space with fun, comfortable common areas! The kitchen had lots of room and was well stocked with all the necessities. The owner had directions to local places to eat, attractions, and all the "how to's" for the cabin! We made use of the hot tub each night enjoying the quietness and stillness of the surroundings. Love, love, love this little piece of heaven!
Joy Morris 11/9/12

everything we wanted.

Charming Cabin. Perfect for a
My friends and I recently spent a wonderfully relaxing weekend at Rustic Elegance. The name perfectly captures the experience you can expect at this Helen cabin. High-quality beds, sheets, furniture, towels, and other amenities made it easy to settle in quickly and comfortably. The home is located in a gated community, but still feels private and close to nature. It's location was perfect for enjoying downtown Helen (2-3 miles drive) and Unicoi State Park (a 1/4 mile walk from the cabin). My friends and I had a wonderful time in the hot tub, shooting pool, and watching football on the big screen TV. Our dogs had a great time as well :) We will definitely make this an annual getaway!

We had a fantastic time at
Rustic Elegance and Helen, GA.
It was the perfect getaway from
the heat in Florida! Everything
was as advertised with no
surprises. Very tastefully
decorated, comfortable, clean,
and quiet. I highly recommend
this cabin/home for anyone
looking to escape to the GA
mountains. The owners were
extremely accommodating and
helpful. As a side note,
probably not the best location
for families with very small
children due to the steep
decline at the back of the home
(in my opinion). Also stay away
from the International Cafe in
Helen as it was probably the
worst German food I have ever
tasted (I've been to many). The
bakery up the road is far
superior; but only open for
breakfast and lunch.
