If you’re craving a relaxing weekend away from home, this travel guide was made for you! I spent hours and hours and hours over the course of 2 months searching for the perfect dog friendly home to rent for our long weekend getaway. Once you throw in the dog friendly filter I felt like the homes were not very nice, making it hard to book.
FINALLY I came across Blue Cabin Rentals. We ended up booking a gorgeous home through them.
- Dog friendly
- Hot tub
- Amazing views
- Close to to town
We ended up staying in a town called Helen, GA. The best part is that it’s only an hour and a half drive from Atlanta! It’s a super small town with not a lot going on – which was great for us because we were there to relax and not have exciting plans.
Here are my weekend recommendations:
- Morning coffee at Jumpin’ Goat Tasting Room (if you bring your dogs they have a park attached to the coffee shop)
- Wine tasting/tour (linking the company I recommend)
- Oktoberfest (this happens Sept-October in Helen)
- Hiking on the local trails/waterfalls
I loved having a house with a hot tub and a beautiful view because we spent the majority of our time there. We even made all our meals at the house. It was perfect for us and the dogs! PRO TIP: Buy pre-made meals at Costco and use those from lunch and dinner. They are delicious and SO easy.
That’s it! Hope this travel guide helps you enjoy the relaxing weekend you deserve 🙂
