    Description

    Welcome to our Farm, our destination venue for weddings with lodging. 8 Rooms.
    In 2014, we opened our family home as a destination wedding venue business with onsite lodging. We have an authentic 1800’s barn and a colonial farmhouse circa 1914, which are the pinnacle of Southern charm. Our property is nestled among the Chattahoochee National Forest and the Doublehead, little Andy mountain and Horse Range Mountains with Mount Yonah nearby. You’ll see rolling pastures, a pure water creek, and true American history. We have done a lot of renovations to the property, but we still need your help!

    We need Workawayers who are social, positive, and outgoing especially during times when we have wedding or hosting guests, as we are a hospitality business and willing to work hard and a self-starter. You must also be flexible, tidy, and self-sufficient. We prefer non-smokers, but we have an area for you to smoke. We can host you for about 4 weeks at a time but usually trying 1 week first to determine if we are a good fit for longer stays.

    The accommodations will vary depending upon the season and availability.
    Of course, we love the cultural exchange aspect of Workaway and learning about your culture and teaching about our own through food, conversation, and your ability to see the tourist attractions or nature nearby.
    see Helen, GA for more information on the area.

    We are currently needing help with cleaning, making beds, folding towels & table linens, organization, filing papers, painting, landscaping, Handyman skills, Carpentry, mending fences, mending donkey barn, digging holes for plants or gardening prep, photography or video skills a plus since we are rebranding.

    We are unable to host pets at this time. We have 2 miniature donkeys and most of the time dogs chase the donkeys and this is not good.

    We do require proof of vaccination and/or proof of previous testing positive for covid.
    Masks would be required at times if guests are onsite.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area is rural and mountainous, with beautiful scenery, waterfalls, and a small-town feel. Quintessentially Northeast Georgia, we are nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains and Chattahoochee River. Helen, the local town, is a re-creation of an alpine village complete with cobblestone alleys and old-world towers.It has a rich history linked to the Cherokee Indians and early settlers who arrived to mine for gold and cut virgin timber for a thriving lumber industry in the early 1900s. Sometimes, we will be able to give you transport into Helen, where you might like to go hiking, tubing, or ziplining.

    We are located in Cleveland, Georgia, USA. We are 5 miles from Helen, Georgia USA and located approximately 1.5 hours north of Atlanta, Georgia and the ATL airport. The Amtrak train Station near Gainesville, GA is 30 mins away. The closest MARTA Train station is North Springs, which is the easiest place to pick you up. If needed, we can pick you up from the airport. We are unable to pick up during the winter months or during weekends.
