    I never thought of North Georgia as being a vacation destination. I love those quaint cottages. It seems like everything except the caboose is for more than 2 people. Is it possible for a couple to rent space in any of these vacation destinations?

    I love the ability to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and slow down to century old destinations for a holiday.

      Hi Carolyn, these rental listings are for the entire property, so some of the larger rentals may be too big for a couple traveling by themselves. However, it is common for groups of friends to go in together to split the cost of larger vacation rentals and keep everyone together to allow for more bonding time during vacation!

    I was looking at the Yellow bird cottage in Cleveland, looks beautiful. What kind of food places does the town of Cleveland have, my partner and I are big steak lovers. Also I see there’s a water park near by, what months does this open? or if its easier when does it close? 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Sam, The water-based attractions are generally open daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and sometimes they open on weekends outside of those dates if the weather is warm enough.

      Cleveland has a handful of casual restaurants to choose from (try Clyde’s for steak), or venture over to nearby towns of Helen or Dahlonega for even more options.

    Many of these cabins are truly stunning and it sure sounds like Northern Georgia is the perfect place to vacation if you’re looking for a little R and R and you have a love of all things history. I especially like the Mountain log cabin and the fact that it sleeps eight. Would be a great place to rent and have family meet up so we could enjoy a weekend together. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Alicia, I’ve traveled with groups of family and friends to many destinations, and it’s always nice to have a place that can accommodate us all! Enjoy!

    Hi Alyce
    Thanks for sharing your views on the historic vacation rentals in North Georgia .your selection of historic cabins is awesome. I liked restored 1929 caboose and the yellow bird cottage lot. There is so much to enjoy in North Georgia and your every article makes me more excited to visit the place. Cost and comfort wise it is excellent.
    Warm Regards,

      Hi Guarav, Those are both really unique vacation rentals in North Georgia. I know you’ll have a great stay at either one!

    I love the look of cabins. And i want to go here now! they look great. What is the cheapest one I could stay at? I think i love the idea of living here but as it says in the title. it’s only rentals, Which Cabin is the best to stay in? Here in Orlando we have a place called Camp Ocala and they have cabins but we don’t have the views like this post shows. 

    Thanks for the great post!

      The Former 19th Century Schoolhouse / Cottage has the lowest average cost per night. However, if you have a large group, it may be more economical to split a big rental with your group and spend more time together!

  7. Jessie says:

    Thank you so much for this awesome post!  I plan on visiting every state in the United States and Georgia is on that list to see eventually.  I really like some of the things you have put up on the site here.  The schoolhouse is something I would definitely rent out!  So much history in that I believe and the fact I can bring my animal helps a lot too!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Jessie, Best of luck to you as you visit each state! I was able to see my 50th state (Alaska) about 5 years ago and I can definitely recommend the journey as a worthwhile life goal.

    This was very engaging and resonant read for me, as a person who enjoys learning about local history. I would love to visit some of these landmarks you provided. 

    You do an amazing job with all the specifics (i.e. minimum age requirements, prohibited activities, target audience, etc.) to help me start planning the trip in my head. How fun to stay at a place with some history!

    • Alyce says:

      These historic vacation rentals definitely provide a unique stay experience that can’t be found at chain hotels. I hope you have a wonderful visit!

    North Georgia is just beautiful. I love the scenery and the calmness that the place has. Oh, wouldn’t I love to live in those awesome wooden houses and log huts. take me there, somehow. 

    This is a great review with so many mouth-watering places to stay and see. I am tempted even further, and might just have to plan a trip soon. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Aparna, The Georgia mountains are a great place to immerse yourself in a beautiful and welcome space. I hope you are able to visit soon!

    Hello Alyce, what a lovely article. These places and all the historic vacations rentals in North Georgia are beautiful to visit and spend some time over there. My favourite from this list is Yellow cottage. It seems a lively place to stay and enjoy the rest. I don’t smoke and have pets, so for me, it is not a problem that in this cottage smoking, pets, and events no permitted

    thank you for sharing


    • Alyce says:

      Hi Alketa, The yellow cottage looks so inviting and the location near town would make for a great Georgia mountain vacation!

    I have only been to Georgia once several years ago to attend a company function. I would love to go again once international travel resumes. These places are absolutely beautiful. For me, the smaller private cabins are more appealing. I would love to know more about activities, tours, museums in the area. I don’t like to be bored and shopping is not my thing so any info would be awesome. I love being in nature so hiking trails are always fun. The countryside looks pretty much the same as in Canada but sunnier than is usual for our province of New Brunswick. What is the local food like? I mean are there particular dishes I may not have tried before? Hopefully, travel will resume soon so I can visit.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Rick, There are lots of great activities of all types in the area. There are permanent museums, exhibits, and ongoing local events held throughout the year. You’ll find plenty of fun things to do!

      For food, the South prides itself on its barbecue, so be sure to try a local BBQ place near where you stay.

      Things definitely look a bit different this year due to COVID, but hopefully, everything can be fully opened soon!

    I absolutely loved this article on historic vacation rentals in North Georgia. All the places look amazing, and nature and the river view. What is close to this place? And are there some sightseen options available? Is this somewhere in the mountains? Sorry, I have never been to Georgia and would like to so I am asking too many questions 🙂 

    Thanks for your response. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Sunny, Your questions are all welcome! There are many kinds of different things to see and ways to spend your time in North Georgia — it all depends on what you enjoy. These historic rentals in the Georgia mountains are close to great parks, vineyards, breweries, museums, local shops, and more!

    I love historical places, and these cabins are really nice. I’m only 5,000 miles away in the Philippines. If I ever vacation again in the US, I’ll be sure to come to Georgia. I’ve been living in other countries for five years now and love it. 

    The 1929 Caboose looks like a fantastic place to stay. I would love that. Hopefully, there’s a place to fish nearby. There’s not much fishing going on in other countries like the US. 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Michael, thanks for sharing. Living in a different country can be very exciting! There are definitely lots of great places to fish in the Georgia mountains so be sure to bring your fishing gear on your next trip!

    Oh wow. I really do miss vacations. I always travel for vacation with my family at least once a year. In good years we do travel twice if not three times. Our last vacation travel was in December 2019. We had planned to travel mid year 2020 but we could not because of the Covid-19 pandemic. I believe once the disease burden has gone down, my holiday vacation should be in North Georgia mountains. The place look great and the historic cabins are a wow. My personal preference should be the Barn at Lake Rabun. My family would love it

    • Alyce says:

      Hello Boi, You are right that a lot of us are far overdue for a vacation! The Barn at Lake Rabun is a stunning location for spending quality vacation time with the family.

    I really liked the cabins over there at Clayton. And it would be exciting to stay in one of those over 100 years old. I have always felt this quaint mountain community has been very fortunate. I would also like to mention how nice their upscale clothing, home décor and accessory shops are.

    • Alyce says:

      Thanks for sharing Ann! Clayton is a wonderful mountain town with some of the nicest shops and best views in the state. Staying overnight at these historic rental houses adds an element of authenticity to the experience!
