Recent Helen reviews
Great stay for all 18 of us!
"We had a wonderful stay in The Lodge and The Fisherman's Cabin over the 4th of July weekend. The park on the river is hands down the perfect setting for a group. We had a wonderful time grilling, tubing (very easy access), and drinking beer down by the river. The boys especially loved Cindy's driving range set up. It was my husband's 30th birthday and we were able to all watch a video I had made of all of his friends and family wishing him a Happy Birthday down there too since we had electrical access. It was the definite highlight of the trip! The location is perfect too. We walked into Helen for the fireworks, hung out at a bar after in downtown, and walked home. Half of our group stopped at the go kart place right on the way home and rode golf carts too. Tip: when going into town during high traffic times, come out of the road the cabins are on, take a left, and then take an immediate right on Unicoi I think. There's a grocery and liquor store right there and it takes 3 minutes and no traffic if you go that way. I have no idea how Cindy has the energy to keep us with everything but she manages very well. Side note, she's also absolutely hysterical. She had us all cracking up the second we walked in the door. The cabins are rustic and quirky so know that going in and just go with it. Some of my girlfriends were surprised but they all came around in the end and said they'd definitely want to come back. I think it was nice for us all to get out of our element and be more in touch with nature. The Lodge is where I stayed and will want to stay again but having access to the Fisherman's Cabin is great for grilling and access to the river. It was also perfect for our friends with a small child since he could nap and they were only 50 feet away and had the wifi for their baby monitor so they could keep an eye on him the whole time. The hot tubs are great and very clean, the pool table room at the Lodge was used multiple times, the kitchens have what you need. It's great. We brought a golf cart by the way, which was really helpful in transporting people and food to the river from the Lodge since it's a bit steep. Thanks Cindy for all of your help and for going out of your way to ship my left behind clothes before you left town!!!! She's seriously the best!! She feels like a friend and it shows that others feel that way by all the sweet notes left for her."

"We rented the cabin for three nights. It is exactly as shown and beautiful. The setting is down a private road and far enough away from town yet close enough to run into Helen for a bite to eat or to tour the shops. It is close to Unicoi for hiking and swimming. Sadie was awesome to deal with and made everything easy from check in to check out. We will stay again in this cabin."

"My husband and I have been travelling to the mountains of NC and GA for more than 10 years and I have always been ready to go home by the end of each trip. However, because of our stay at Heavenly Hideaway, I hated to leave to return home. The home is immaculately clean, well maintained, and the views of the wooded mountain setting -- with the sound of the river as a backdrop--are beautiful. The home is very accessible, as are drives into Cleveland and surrounding areas. This home is a perfect spot for a restorative get-away for couples, family and friends and we look forward to making this "our get-away home" for years to come."
