We had the BEST time in this home!! The pool table, Ms. Pacman arcade game, firepit, and hot tub were so much FUN! The home was clean and comfortable in every way. LOVED the gas fireplace in the den!

Great 10th Anniversary

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 10th anniversary. The view from the cabin was breathtaking! Wish we lived in Georgia so we could go back more often. We told all our friends in Augusta about it. The bed is the most comfortable we’ve slept in away from home. You definitely won’t regret staying here.

Wonderful stay!

Everything was perfect for us! Convenient to so many attractions. Just minutes to several antique shops, the winery, Helen and Uniqoi. Beautiful views from every level of the house. Clean and accommodating. The bed, oh, the bed. So comfortable. I slept like a baby. Fully equipped kitchen, plus an awesome grill on the porch. The game room and hot tub were where wonderful. The fire pit was great, just bring some fire wood. If you plan on watching a lot of TV, there are not a ton of channels. My husband and I were there to sight see and relax in peace, so not a big issue. Not extremely secluded, but just enough for us. Nice and quiet. Also, if you plan on sleeping or hanging out in the game room for long periods of time, it's chilly (we stayed in February), so maybe bring a space heater. I would definetly stay again. Maybe bring the kids next time. :) Thank you to host!

Awesome and Cozy

We really enjoyed this cabin. It's very cozy and warm. It's private and has a nice view of the mountains. I had an issue connecting to the internet at first but getting help over the phone was super easy. Also, the cabin is very convenient to Helen and Hardman Farm.

Peaceful Retreat Near Helen

My husband and I "escape to the mountains" two or three times a year, typically staying at a different cabin each time. We both agreed that this one was our favorite and we would return. We like all the cabins where we stay, but we rarely ever like one enough to want to return to it instead of trying something new - we would come back to this one. The pictures of the view online don't do it justice at all - they are breathtaking, especially from the upstairs bedrooms and the main level, which is a wall of windows. The view is probably especially good in the winter because the trees have lost their leaves and it's a direct view right to the mountains. I spent every morning just staring out at them, feeling completely content. I also LOVED that little bar table built into the porch with the stools - what a nice touch! The gas fireplace was divine too.The layout of the cabin was perfect for the two of us. We spent most of our time on the main level, cuddled up in front of the fire, but we also hung out downstairs quite a bit and LOVED the arcade game! That added such a fun touch to staying in a cabin. I also enjoyed walking up the steep mountain path to see the view from other vantage points. OH and that king bed is incredibly comfy.Our stay truly was perfect, and I would rate this cabin 99% easily. There are only two tiny things I would change: The downstairs is really cold(although you get warmed up when you're playing the arcade - it would have been too cold to hang out and watch a movie down there) so a small heater would help that. The only other thing I'd change is the TV channel selection. We spent a lot of time at cabins just loafing, but there weren't very many channels available. Maybe the Direct TV package could be expanded or when those TVs die, just replace them with smart TVs so people can log in to their own Hulu/Netflix accounts. Aside from those two small things, the cabin was completely perfect, and we would easily s

Great Little Cabin

4 of us stayed in this cabin for a long weekend. Really was a great little cabin. We loved having the hot tub and being basically right in between Helen and Cleveland. Location can't be beat. There were also beautiful views from all of the decks. We were generally very happy with the cleanliness and quality of the interior of the cabin, although I would recommended bringing your own towels as the ones included are of poor quality. Not a big deal, but something I would do next time! Overall, a great weekend getaway at a great price. Would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed the views and wonderful accommodations. The game room was a bonus! I had previously stayed with my spouse, daughter and granddaughter a few weeks prior. We loved the cabin. So close to so many wonderful outdoor adventures!

Family vaca

My husband and I were very impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin. The views are breathtaking and check in and out were a breeze. The rental office was always available for questions and able to promptly provide answers. As a matter of fact I will be returning to this cabin with my sisters in a few weeks. I can’t wait for theee first experience with this area and it also only about 10 minutes from Helen.

peaceful, quite, and convenient

Very clean, super hot tub, comfy beds, and great game room. Couldn't keep my wife off of the Ms. PacMan game. We only live 35 miles away and will definately be back again.

Almost Perfect

Let me start off by saying this is my 3rd time renting with Georgia Mountain Rentals and wont be my last, this cabin is very nice they layout is nice with the exception of the kitchen lay out, if you bring groceries you will have no place to store them except for on the counters. The TV had hardly any channels, they have Directv but the package has to be the smallest I have ever seen, they had cartoons, local channels and food network, not even A&E, Discovery any of the regular basic channels. Not a huge deal but it rained most of our stay and we would have liked to watch TV. The aracade game downstairs is awesome however the pool table is not really able to be used, the room is small so some shots you have to take with the little stick and their is furniture all around the pool table making the space even smaller. The cabin is beautiful and nicely decorated, it was clean and decently furnished. The master bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.

Good View and comfy

The View from the upstairs deck is nice. The cabin was clean and the beds were comfortable. We called the management folks on Sunday with a question and they answered right away and were polite and very accommodating. We will be back!

What a wonderful world!

We went to Helen for the Balloon Fest and spent a lot of time at the cabin! It was comfortable for 4 adults, clean, and convenient to either Helen or Cleveland.The views were amazing from all 3 decks.

Great overall experience for our first VRBO rental. Gravel drive was slightly unpleasant. The view was limited to mostly trees but was still far different from what we see daily. The house next door was too close when the residents came outside to talk on the phone or argue with one another. We would come again if we were not driving. Might have to fly to a nearby city.

May 2019 Review

Good experience overall, but a few things to note. The view is not that great from the second floor (no view from the first floor). Best view is from the bedroom deck on the 3rd floor. Attribute this to the amount of trees with leaves on them. One frustrating thing was there was 1 wine glass in the kitchen. If you're going to be located near the Georgia Wine Trail I would have expected there to be more than 1 wine glass. My husband and I ended up buying a few glasses and got some from tastings that we left at the house, so now there is definitely more than 1. Also, was frustrated that it wasn't noted or mentioned that there are 2 other cabins right next door - one about 20 yards away. If you want complete privacy, this is not the place. Other than that, the kind bed is incredibly comfortable and a great night sleep. Hot tub and pool table were nice perks.

Best cabin ever!

This cabin was the perfect place for my daughter, son in law, 3 year old grandson and me. There was a pool table and arcade game loaded with a huge variety of games like PacMan, Galaga, Frogger, etc and my grandson had a good time learning how to play them. We would definitely choose this place again.

Peaceful Weekend Getaway

A Glimpse of Heaven had the most peaceful and breathtaking views at all hours of the day. This was a great place to escape the FL heat and city life for a few days. This location would be even more beautiful in fall when the leaves change. We are already planning our next trip to the area.

Unique Cabin

We enjoyed the cabin its self, but travel up the road to the cabin really needs to be paved!!Not Motorcycle friendly at all!! I would not recommend trying to go up the hill in a car either.A four wheel drive vehicle would be appropiate.

Great getaway

The cabin A Glimpse of Heaven was just as nice as the pictures EXCEPT there was no hot tub! A hot tub was on our very short must-have list. The staff at Georgia Mountain Rentals were extremely helpful and pleasant. They found us another cabin with a hot tub on very short notice. We drove to this other cabin, enjoyed the hot tub, but really liked the first cabin. So the rental company accommodated our wish and we moved back to A Glimpse of Heaven. I would rate this 9 out of 10 - if there had been a hot tub, it would get a 10! Will definitely use Georgia Mountain Rentals again!

Paradise found.

Our mountain rental truly surpassed all expectations. Comfortable, clean, with good amenities and all set in the perfect location - three floors all with balconies and even a hot tub, pool table and space invader machine! We were greeted early evening by a deer and fireflies and enjoyed peace and quite in the most tranquil of environments. We enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets whilst indulging in some of the lovely local wines. We also witnessed spectacular lightning displays on a couple of nights. We would gladly return to such a relaxing location one day.

Great Vacation Rental

This cabin turned out to be a great choice for our family of 4. The location is great, you can get to Helen and all the other fun stuff to do in a matter of minutes but you are still secluded and have great views. The sunsets were awesome! My wife and I enjoyed the arcade games and my young kids enjoyed building fires and exploring the lot. We had an awesome time. Anything we needed was taken care of in quick order from GMR. Overall a fabulous vacation and we would definitely go back.

Wonderful Stay at A Glimpse of Heaven

These was perfect for our vacation to the Helen, GA area. Felt very tucked away and private. Overall it was a beautiful home. A few things that may need attention: 1.We also were not able to locate a broom to clean up the kitchen after meals. 2. I hope the owners consider adding a washer/dryer to the unit as that could significantly extend the amount of time renters spend here. The remoteness of the home makes it inconvenient to visit a laundromat. 3.There were several webs all over the decks and chairs that could have been easily swept away. The webs made it seem as though no one used the outside facilities much...which is a shame because the view is stunning! 4. There is only one chair down by the fire pit. All other guests would need to stand or site on the ground. The neighboring home has a very comfy fire pit arrangement.These are just observances/comments. We had a great time here and would definitely book this home again!

A great time was had by all

We had a great time at the glimpse of heaven. The house was very nice and clean. The overall appearance was exactly detailed like the pictures on the website. Right down to the hot tub and game room. We had an amazing weekend and we are already planning a whole week for next year. Also thank you to the home owners for opening their home for rental guests. Thank you tho the staff of Georgia Mountain Rental too.

Beautiful clean and close to town

The cabin was wonderful! Very clean with amazing views! The management company was very great to deal with and very helpful. I would give all 5 starts except we were a little disappointed that there wasn’t a washer/dryer. I always pack light and wash my clothes while on vaca- I should have asked before so I could have been better prepared.

You never know when you go away what the place will be like. It always looks nice from the photos.... This place - A Glimpse of Heaven - was just that. It was really clean and smelled great. The view was amazing, and it was just a 5 min drive from Helen. Easy access in the gates and the home, thanks to the rental company - they were awesome as well. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Absolutely amazing!

After reading other reviews on this property I knew I had to book it for a weekend away with my husband and it lived up to its name. A Glimpse of Heaven was well maintained and the views of Yonah Mountain were fantastic. Close enough to the cities of Cleveland and Helen, yet tucked away enough to where all that you ever really hear are the birds chirping all around. Dahlonega was a short trip west, and Toccoa Falls a short trip East. We managed to cover quite a bit in two full days! The bed was very comfortable, kitchen had enough cooking equipment plates and utensils, and the game room downstairs was perfect after a long day around town. I will add that if you have never driven up steep roads, try to arrive on the first day before nightfall! My husband and I had quite the experience being that we are from very flat Florida. Otherwise we had a phenomenal time and will return here again. We will utilize Georgia Mountain Rentals when we plan our next North Georgia vacation with our children!
