All three times I’ve stayed at Blackberry Hideaway have been nothing short of excellent! Whether with family members, friends, or significant others, the cabin is a great choice for both outdoor enthusiasts and “relaxationers” alike. Located close to Helen, Sautee, and Cleveland, GA, cabin-dwellers can spend one day hiking the Appalachian Trail and the next day buying regional souvenirs for loved ones at one of many local shops. The cabin is a short drive from Atlanta, Georgia and ideal for all who want to get away to experience nature from the comforts of a pleasurable home away from home.

Blackberry Hideaway is a beautiful cabin with every amenity you can think of. Includes a full kitchen, indoor and outdoor hot tubs and internet access to name a few. The area has so many places to explore in Helen and Dahlonega from German town, tubing and gold mining. It was a wonderful family trip, but I can also see it as a romantic get away. Best of all…Blackberry Hideaway is pet friendly!

This was a very easy cabin to find. As soon as i opened the door, It immediately lowered my blood pressure. There’s a very nice vibe in Blackberry Hideaway. A nice smell, a nice feeling. Roomy and very comfortable. The owners are not just pet tolerant, but genuinely pet friendly. They have thought of everything from your pet’s needs to your own. Toys/dog bowls/calming colors. All the comforts of home and all the amenities. It’s peaceful and quiet, yet exciting to be there. Nothing is over looked. The owners know how to treat their guests. It was so easy to be there. Everything about this stay was easy. Will definitely return.

Where do I begin? Blackberry Hideaway has been a weekend getaway and meeting place for my family over the years, and I have many special memories from our time spent there. This is the kind of place where you have plenty of space to do your own thing while still being together with your friends/family. One might be upstairs on the computer or watching a movie, while someone else is in the kitchen cooking dinner, another grilling steaks on the deck, another in the hottub, and the rest of your party watching the downstairs while you work! As for what the towns nearby have to offer: a winery, a granary, fly fishing, an amazing farmers market complete with boiled peanuts and peach ice cream, a few fun restaurants, and of course, a quaint alpine town. Every time I come here, I feel like it’s a home away from home. The owners have certainly made this a special place for their guests–it’s warm and welcoming, unlike other cabins where I’ve stayed in the area. Choose Blackberry Hideaway to make your vacation special.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three days. We came from Brunswick, GA. We really enjoyed the time away from everyone. We would definitely come back again. Helen was very fun and interesting. The cabin is beautiful. My boyfriend brought his dog Fluffy and she also enjoyed the stay. The morning we left we woke up to snow! Overall a great experience. Thanks!

Thank you, we had such a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend. We loved the hot tub and jacuzzi, the seclusion was wonderful, and our cat loved being able to perch on the beam across the top of the kitchen. We’ll be back as soon and often as possible. Much Love.

Thank you for providing such beautiful PET FRIENDLY accommodations! We love to take our “son” Mojo everywhere we can and he loved the cabin. The whole little town is very pet-friendly and it’s been just great to have such quality family time. Mojo loved laying on the deck and soaking up the cold air and we loved the cozy fire and 2 hot tubs. We will definitely tell friends and we hope to be back soon. Have a happy Valentine’s Day.

We had a great time, however 2 days was not enough. We enjoyed our stay, it was very relaxing. It was nice to have some time away from the kids. I sure enjoyed spending time with my husband, however I am sure going to miss him so much when he leaves for Iraq in two weeks. Thanks for the great getaway.

This was the 1st time we decided to escape Florida for the holidays and leave the grandparents, in-laws, obligations & Christmas parties. We sought a peaceful Christmas with just our two sweet girls (4) and (3), and we found it here. We could really enjoy when Santa came and visited the girls. We hiked and just enjoyed the cabin. Our dog came with us and had a blast. Our family did a lot of cooking. The girls would actually complain when they had to leave the cabin to go anywhere because they just wanted to relax. The Blackberry Hideaway made our Christmas absolutely magical. Thanks

Had a great time, however 2 days isn’t enough to see everything. Need at least a week! Really enjoyed being able to bring our dog as well. Cabin is great, easy to unwind and relax. The Autumn foliage is truly spectacular. Hope to visit next year for at least a week.

We had a great time, good get-away for a week. Helen was beautiful as ever. Oktoberfest was crazy. We done a little fishing at Unicoi State Park, caught us a couple of Rainbows. But most of all the rest and relaxation was what we needed. Now it’s time to head back to the real world. We love this place and will come back.

We came in the rain, we made it just in time before some of the roads were closed – we spent the the first three days in the rain – but it was great! We were away from work and no one could ask us to come and help them! We had a great time – the rain finally came out and the dogs went to the park & the beach – all was right in their world. Out stay was great – try the Hofbrau House! The food is authentic German – too bad we found it on the last night! The bed was perfect for my back! Beautiful cabin, great location. Look forward to coming back.

My wife and I were married 14 years ago and spent it here in Helen. We were divorced June 20th of this year, we had strayed apart. This weekend was for us to see if we could reconnect our hearts. This place is magical and we have found ourselves again. Because of this place, we will begin a new chapter of our lives. And with God’s help we will have the rest of our lives with each other. We will be back before long. Pray the magic stays with us as we leave here.

We absolutely loved our time at Blackberry Hideaway! My husband and I felt at home the moment we stepped in the door. Everything about the cabin is perfect from the location, to the hot tub, to the decor. This weekend was exactly the kind of weekend we have been needing for a long time! We will definitely be back! Thank you!

We decided to have a small elopement before Steve got deployed to Afghanistan in October. Got married Friday and found this perfect cabin for a perfect getaway. The Christmas lights were cute. We honestly didn’t stay at the cabin too much, but enjoyed it enough to definitely be coming back. Thank you for the great staff and great weekend!

We had an excellent time! When looking for a place for our trip, we wanted something secluded, yet close to town, so we had everything we needed, this was perfect. We especially enjoyed the jacuzzi tub upstairs! After a rough day of rafting, it was the perfect place to unwind. Thanks for everything! We plan to make this a yearly trip.

This was our six-month wedding anniversary, so we decided to have a mini family honeymoon. It was exactly what we needed! We enjoyed it!! The hot tub in the loft was wonderful, even though it rained during our stay, that was nice as well. Our first cabin visit but not our last! We will start our own tradition…Holidays, family, couples, any reason to enjoy ourselves and share the peace.

We love the Blackberry Hideaway! We had an awesome time. Our wedding was yesterday, April 30th, on the course at Innsbruck. It was very romantic to come back to the cabin and have champagne. We will be back for sure! Keep an eye out for pics on your email!

My 60th birthday. What a lovely place to spend it. The cleaning crew was tops. Everything you could want and more. We really did enjoy ourselves. We will tell everyone about the cabin and how clean it was. Claire and Benji, you have really outdone yourselves. You know what it takes to make people feel at home. God bless you.

We chose Blackberry Hideaway because the guest bedroom had room for our boys. Also for the hot tub which we all enjoyed. The fire stove was wonderful to have during our cold stay in the mountains. We came back to enjoy it after my husband’s 17K in the mountains on Saturday. It was in the 30s in Helen and 24 degrees at the top of the mountain. We also had a light dusting of snow – how beautiful! We loved our relaxing long weekend at your cabin. Our doggie enjoyed it, too! Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay. It was just what we needed. The stress level has been extremely high lately and this weekend really took the edge off. We are satisfied we will return soon. It was our first Thanksgiving in our marriage and gave us time to appreciate the little things in life. This has been a real blessing.

We thoroughly enjoyed the cabin. The kids loved it as well. We are already discussing a trip back alone. Thanks so much!

I’ve decided to write a rhyme, to thank you two so very much for such a very good time! The cabin decor is cozy, the tubs they are a-hot, a perfect escape from routine society, mmm I like it a lot. Such a joy to awake to birds singing, to indulge in a hot cup of tea, to surround oneself with simple pleasures at such an affordable fee. As a nature lover again I must thank you, for providing the opportunity to get away. Together the beauty of nature and the cabin have caused me to have a very happy birthday.

Hello! We spent our 1 year anniversary here and it was beautiful and we loved that we could bring our dogs, Sammy & Randy. Who knows, maybe we’ll start a tradition! :) The little winery was so cute and they had a nice variety of wines. We went horseback riding in Helen. My husband loved it being the “Boston City Boy” that he is. The guide was very nice and there was an intimate feel. We hope to return very soon.

We have really enjoyed our stay this weekend at Blackberry Hideaway. Small, quaint and cozy. A breath of fresh air away from the big city life. Thanks!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
It was great :) We will be back definitely. The cabin is so nice & cozy. We had a great time. It was awesome that we could bring our baby dog. Thanks for great service.

So peaceful, quiet. Just the place for me to contemplate my life. I shall be back to spend more time in this delightful, well-appointed respite.

Just want to “thank you” for the last minute reservation and for the all making sure we arrived alright. My husband and I enjoyed the wrap around deck and the nature. The kids seemed in love with the loft. Maybe with time we can reach their inner “naturalist”. We really hope the next time we come we get to see some wildlife like deer or something, but it was wonderful waking up to birds singing and warm sunshine. Thanks for a wonderful “getaway”!

We had a great spring break. For once I got to travel with the family instead of being carted off to the doggie hotel. My family took me for many wonderful walks and I loved watching everything going on from the deck. I even had a visitor – a local I think – she seemed very concerned about the coming weather and hovered close until her people came home and then she took off. I don’t think thunderstorms are that scary. Great place to unwind! The family seemed to have a great time too. Hopefully we’ll be back soon.

I was looking for the perfect family get away and found it here in this beautiful cabin. I wanted to get away from our everyday lives. We will be back! PS – I hope next time we’re here it doesn’t rain all weekend. We still loved every minute of our stay!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
We had an amazing time. It was exactly what we needed to get away. The cabin was nice and cozy. And we really felt at home with the computer and the DVR on the satellite box! We will certainly be coming back. You truly have a great cabin and we are very thankful for having the opportunity to stay. We look forward to coming back soon.

We absolutely loved the cabin. The layout is beautiful and it felt like home! We loved the big tub and hot tub..we got engaged out there! This is by far our favorite vacation spot; we love the mountains, and downtown Helen was lovely. We ate at Edelweiss for lunch and The Nacoochee Grill for dinner. We highly recommend them both. Thank you so much for your hospitality

Great Cabin! We got married at Minnehaha Waterfall on Feb. 1, it was great, the sites of Helen were also great. The cabin was so nice and we didn’t want to leave. we are already talking about planning another trip here soon. Thank you so much for the gift basket!

We had a wonderful stay here – so much so that we stayed an extra night! Thanks for everything – we will be sure to recommend you to our family and friends!

What in incredible weekend and an absolutely WONDERFUL cabin!! Thank you for all the comforts you have put into this place! Most comfortable place I’ve been in – homey! Our chihuahua Annie got her exercise and loved laying in the sun in the living room windows. The place is great – don’t change a thing! Be back soon!

We are here celebrating our five-year anniversary. Although it rained a good bit of the time, we enjoyed staying indoors and using the wood burning stove. The log cabin style home is impressive and provided everything we needed for a relaxing time. Our Pekingese, Tater, got a lot of exercise going up and down the stairs.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Wow! What a wonderful couple of days we’ve had here in this cozy getaway. The cabin exceeded all expectations. We really had time to relax here this Christmas and just take in the beauty around us. The hot tub, movies and games were a clever addition to our stay. We indeed will be back.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The cabin is wonderful! We really didn’t want to go anywhere else because the cabin is so cozy & great. The hot tub is awesome. We brought things like games and movies to keep us from being bored, only to find games & movies already here. I also brought an iron & you had that too! Just about any amenity you could think of was here. The kitchen was stocked better than my own kitchen back home. Today is my husband and I’s 5th year anniversary. We came with his parents who invited us to come as an anniversary and Christmas gift. I couldn’t think of any place better to be on these special occasions than this beautiful cabin. we have talked about starting a tradition of coming every year for the holidays or at least once a year. Thanks for the lovely stay.

Had a great “Girls” weekend. Wonderful cabin!

This is the nicest cabin we have stayed in. We enjoyed every aspect of this wonderfully relaxing cabin. we wanted to get away from the city for a bit to unwind. I feel very rested. The wildlife came right up to the back deck. This was the first time I was able to see a woodpecker. The hot tub was amazing! Thank you very much for a wonderful weekend and for keeping the cabin in great shape. A home away from home.

We were looking for a chance to kick back & relax and this “Blackberry Cabin” was just the right place. The woods, the fire stove and deck were perfect. we also had an intense Monopoly game that kept us up way too late! Thanks for the lovely vacation spot!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Thank you so much for having this wonderful pet friendly cabin for all of us to enjoy. This was a last minute idea to make a trip to Helen and we could have only come if we could find a place to take our dog (Avalon) with us. We were thrilled to find your cabin.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
We had a great time! We would definitely stay here again. The gift basket was a nice touch. Everything about the cabin was very enjoyable. It was a perfect getaway weekend!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
We had a great time! We will be back real soon. We thought the cabin was amazing!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
We had a great time. Your place is very nice and we loved that our dog Scooter could come with us. we enjoyed the hot tub every day of our stay! The kids really enjoyed having their own “place” in the loft. They really loved the internet access. My youngest daughter who is 6 watched both Shrek movies. You have a lovely, inviting retreat.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
You have a wonderful place. We really enjoyed our stay & hope to come back soon. Thanks so much for the goody basket!

Great vacation at a great place. First time we got away with no worries since we did not have to leave our four legged son behind! We all had a great time. This was our first vacation with our first 4-month-old baby. we hope to be back. If interested in selling let us know.

My mother really needed to get away and this was a lucky find – one of our best-ever mother-daughter trips – and we’ve been on many! Thank you for all the many extras – the security, the entertainment, instructions, suggestions, maps/directions, lighting, kitchen supplies, w/d, iron, extra linens, plus music playing, lights and AC hen we arrived. You’ve got a good gig going here – class touches! Mama kept remarking how nice it was. She never wanted to leave w/such comforts. Only dinner called us out. we’ll definitely call again and send others your way.

We enjoyed the cabin so much, this is a beautiful getaway. We would love to come stay again.

We came for a week with plans to do a lot of things. We only did about half of them because we didn’t want to leave the cabin. Our 4 year old granddaughter Victoria didn’t want to leave at all. We had a wonderful time and hope to come back next year. It is so beautiful here and everything was perfect
