  • Creek is splendid


    This property was a great place to spend a week relaxing and getting away. You are 3 minutes from downtown Helen and 30-45 minutes from other towns that were fun to visit in addition to several falls that are nearby and easy to get to. The house has a very nice layout and features a beautiful screened in porch room with tons of space that includes a TV and a table to eat at where we ate our meals and a swing. You will will find yourself spending the majority of your time in that screened in porch room listening to the creek and nature. The hostess met us on the first day and walked through everything and had tons of extras that made the stay so enjoyable. We highly recommend for couples and/or a family because there’s a huge front yard for kids to play. This was a perfect place to stay - we would come back for sure!

  • Made our Stay!


    Our family decided on an end of summer vacation to Helen, Georgia. We stayed at the Hootenany and couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. The cabin was new, well thought out, very clean and had a magical component to it! There is a lovely creek that runs around the cabin that the kids loved and spent hours in. The fire pit was great for s'mores and the large yard for games was awesome. Owner was above and beyond making everything easy and comfortable.

  • Birthday Getaway


    We booked this beautiful place to celebrate my birthday and to have a short getaway as a couple before school starts back. We LOVED everything about our stay! Dana is a magnificent hostess and allowed us to check in early and also enjoy a late checkout. The house is beautiful, and she has thought of every detail to make our stay enjoyable. We were greeted with balloons and a bottle of wine in honor of my birthday! What a thoughtful gesture! The porch was definitely a highlight of our stay! We also enjoyed venturing out to downtown and walking around, shopping, riding the Mountain Coaster and eating some delicious food! We made so many memories and enjoyed such a sweet time together. Next time, we will definitely bring our daughter! She would have loved the creek and fire pit!My only suggestion is it would be awesome if there was a king bed in the primary. LOL! Looking forward to our next visit!!!

    This was our second time staying at Hootenanny. We love this place. It’s so peaceful and relaxing. Our kids had a blast playing in the creek. The owner is fabulous and so very helpful.
