    About this property

    The Mount Yonah Castle!

    Book Friday and Saturday night at our regular rates and get Thursday or Sunday night free with some peak season and holiday exceptions (federal holiday weekends, the months of June & July, Thanksgiving week, Christmas week and New Years Eve holiday). You must ask for the free night when you submit your request for a quote or a reservation request as the VRBO system cannot calculate a free night! The free night is not offered for discounted rates of less than $300 per night on weekends or $200 per night on weeknights. If you are on a budget consider weeknights as our rates during the week are usually discounted $100 per night as compared to weekends and if you book four or five weeknights one will be free if you ask for the free night and are paying our regular rate. We will consider one night bookings in our slower months of January and February, if there is one night sandwiched between two bookings or if it is within a week or two of the date requested, but a $100 premium may be added. We may reduce the cleaning fee to $100 if you only have two to four in your party AND you agree to only use the main floor so please ask. Bookings less than a week will not exceed our weekly slow season rate of $1,200 plus tax (in most cases except for some holidays), the cleaning fee and the VRBO service fee. The $59 non-refundable insurance premium is required for most groups, but we may require the $99 insurance premium for large groups and also for families with children and pets. We have a fenced in back yard for those of you with furry children. It allows your dogs to roam freely in back when you are out on the patio or on the deck. We do charge a $50 pet fee per dog per weekend or $100 pet fee per dog per week which helps pay for extra cleaning and the fence and that must be disclosed before your arrival if you decide to bring a dog(s). All dogs must be house trained, non-destructive, on flea/tick prevention medication and clean. We have a Pack N Play for your infants as well as a booster chair and stroller. We also have a handicap chair for the shower on the main floor if you have anyone elderly in your party. Our luxury home on magical Mount Yonah offers a very special experience! Our home is located in a gated community and has been available for guests as of May 2016. It has a white-washed cottage style table for 10 guests, a queen sofa bed, a reclining sofa and two day beds (with trundle beds below) for relaxing after dinner as well as a king size bed in each of the three bedrooms. If you have multiple families for a wedding or a family reunion there is another house very similar to ours built by the same builder a few doors down. In addition there are three other homes with 18 bedrooms between the five homes. Contact us for details on how to book some or all the homes. The Mount Yonah Castle will capture your heart from the time you walk up the flagstone walkway to the grand entrance to the time you leave with cherished memories of your fairytale getaway. The front of the house is surrounded by mountain laurel and blooming flowers with a flagstone walkway that meanders around the house to an inviting patio where you can enjoy the view and the chirping birds along with our fire pit and our new seven person Hot Spot Rhythm hot tub. The first thing you will notice when you walk in the door is the scent of the cedar siding and the beautiful cherry wood floors. As you walk into the house you will feel the grandeur of the soaring cathedral ceiling in the great room along with the wall of windows and warm stone fireplace. Then your eyes will be drawn to the million dollar mystical view in back which looks like a postcard. Windows and high ceilings abound in this charming home with so many extras you will never want to leave. We even have nine foot ceilings upstairs. The clean and bright gourmet kitchen with white granite counter tops make it a pleasure to spend time in the kitchen. The white washed cottage style dinner table has room for 10 family members and friends for those of you who want to share your rare find on Mount Yonah. There is also a table with room for six on the deck with patio furniture and two rocking chairs if you prefer to dine outside. The warm fire in the stone fireplace adds just the right ambiance in the colder months and in the warmer months we usually have candles that add to the charm. Then relax on the reclining sofa or go out to one of the rocking chairs on the deck to do a little star gazing. It's a great place to enjoy the mountain air and the open sky. The deck is the place to go to enjoy the twinkling lights in the valley below as well as the moon and stars above as the clouds roll past. We also have a fire pit on the patio with six Adirondack chairs where you can go toast marshmallows or sip some wine by the fire or you can take a relaxing dip in the hot tub overlooking the valley. If you like ping pong we have a midsize ping pong table you can set up as well as cards, puzzles and other games. When it's time to retire for the night you are in for a treat as each bedroom is impeccably furnished with a very comfortable king size bed, whimsical bear lamps and your own private bathroom. The master bedroom is on the main floor with a vaulted ceiling and sliding glass doors that share that same amazing view as the great room. It has a comfortable king size panel bed and a luxurious spa-like bathroom with a jetted tub with two large windows that looks out at the seven layer long range mountain view. You will feel you are staying at the Mount Yonah Ritz or in a castle in the Alps! The two spacious bedrooms upstairs have a king size sleigh bed and a king size panel bed and their own luxurious bathrooms as well. There is a half bathroom in the foyer for anyone who may be sleeping in the grandeur of the great room. We have a queen size memory foam sofa bed as well as a day bed with a Sealy Posturepedic mattress and a trundle bed with two six foot tall and seven foot long room divider screens to provide some privacy. There is also a day bed with the same comfortable mattress and a trundle bed below it in the foyer. We even have three roll-away cots that can be set up in a parent's bedroom, upstairs in the hallway or out on the deck for the more adventurous members in your group who may want to try sleeping under the stars! In the morning there is nothing like having your coffee on the deck in a rocking chair or at the patio table while watching the sunrise come over the mountains. Even storms are amazing at the top of Mount Yonah. If you like wildlife keep an eye out for the local deer and other critters. We have an abundance of song birds and there are even bears in the area if you are lucky enough to see one. We have WIFI in the house and Direct TV in the great room and all the bedrooms and three of the flat screen televisions are smart TV's. If you are not familiar with Cleveland we are the home of "Babyland General" where cabbage patch dolls were created. Our home is about 20 miles to Dahlonega and about five miles to Helen. Both towns are known for their vineyards and weddings. We get a lot of wedding guests and wine tour guests. We are about 20 minutes from Dahlonega square which is the site of the first US Goldrush so it has an interesting history which you can learn about at the gold rush museum in the town square and it is the southern most part of the Appalachian Trail. It is also the home of "the Holly Theater" which puts on very professional live plays and musicals. Helen is just five miles away. It is an alpine village known for Octoberfest, river tubing and it's scenic beauty. There are a lot of festivals and vineyards in the area as well as several state parks including Uniqoi in Helen, Vogel State Park near Dahlonega and Amicolola Falls in Dawsonville. If you want to learn to kayak we have a family member who lives in Dahlonega who is an avid kayaker. She can provide you with some sit on top kayaks and give you some lessons to kayak on one of the very calm rivers in the area...even school age children can learn to use these sit on top kayaks. Please contact owner for details. We also have several eating establishments in Cleveland and Yonah Burger is at the base of Mount Yonah just one mile away. The Nachoochee Grill is an upscale dining experience that is also just a few miles away in Helen. Our information book has more restaurants listed if you want to review it upon your arrival. If you want to take some day trips you can ride the Blue Ridge Railway in Blue Ridge or just walk around the town as there are many interesting shops. Brasstown Bald is the tallest mountain in Georgia and is about a 30 minute drive from our home on magical Mount Yonah. This is a great place to have celebrations which are included in the weekend price for up to 15 guests. If you want to have larger parties or events there could be a $250 to $500 event fee depending on the number of guests (talk with owner for details). Parking is limited to about five or six cars so you would have to shuttle your guests up to the house (Appalachian Transportation may be an option). Guests can park at Ingles which is about three miles from the house or ask Yonah Mountain Campground or Freeman's Flooring at the base of the mountain if you can park there. We are located on a dirt and gravel road and it is 3/4 of one mile up to our home. You do NOT need a four wheel drive vehicle to get to our home and there are no steep drop off's. However, we are located on a mountain so you may want to bring a SUV if you have one. We do not recommend our home for guests on motorcycles or guests with trailers unless you arrange to leave it at the base of the mountain at Yonah Mountain Campground or elsewhere. We continue to make improvements every year on this charming and magical place so come experience "The Mount Yonah Castle"!

    There are so many positive Things to say about this wonderful home ! It is spacious, clean and beautiful! We enjoyed the warm cozy fireplace, beautiful,functional kichen and relaxing hot tub .The deck, firepit and grill are also wonderful amenities which we were unable to use due to a rainy Saturday. Fortunately we got to experience he beautiful views on Sunday. The location is close to many activities and the town of Helen . The owner was an excellent host and always responded quickly to our inquires. Highly recommend this home!

    Paradise in the Mountains

    This property was awesome! I am a huge fan of the open floor plans, and this house did not disappoint. We spent most of our time cooking and gathering in the kitchen and playing games at the huge dining room table. The cabin was stocked with everything we needed, and everything was easy to find. I liked that we were able to leave condiments in the refrigerator in case the next party found a use for those. It's hard to figure out how to take everything perishable back home. Our three dogs loved the fenced-in back yard - that was a really nice surprise.

    5/5 Excellent

    Wonderful Christmas!

    Beautiful home with amazing views

    We had everything we needed during our stay. The house was beautiful and clean and The owner was very helpful before and during our stay. This place has million dollar views and it’s conveniently located to many north ga activities. We stayed my wedding weekend and it could not have been more perfect. Driveway really is not bad, we had a passenger van take us back after the wedding with no trouble. Hoping to stay again sometime.

    5/5 Excellent


    There are so many great things about this home! It’s clean, it’s spacious, it’s comfortable, it’s relaxed, but the view is the best part! Waking up and having coffee on the back porch - it’s beautiful. We loved it! It’s private and cozy. Such a great weekend in this home. We can’t wait to do it again!
