Recent Helen reviews

  • Fantastic, mountaintop, secluded, tree house!

    "We enjoyed our stay immensely. This cabin afforded all the amenities necessary for a good time. The pictures and information provided represent the “Mystic Mountain Hideaway” really well and after reviewing the site, we were fully prepared for our stay. We were a little hesitant upon first sight of the driveway leading up to the cabin-it was steep and rather bumpy-but my Dodge Caliber made it up with no problems in low gear. While I think the heating system was struggling a little, there were plenty of electric heaters and comforters to more than make up for the HVAC system; not to mention the fire place! The owners left no stone unturned and answered all of our questions prior to the stay. They even left an instruction booklet outlining nice to know information for the cabin like the operation of lights, door locks, heaters, hot tub, emergencies, maintenance numbers, and such, along with an all-in-one tourist guide for the area. This trip was exactly as we pictured it would be and I would definitely recommend this cabin as a romantic getaway for two or a vacation for the entire family."

  • Perfect Place to Stay

    "What a gorgeous house in beautiful Helen. There were 7 of us for my son's wedding weekend and we could not have picked a lovelier place to stay. The owner is very accommodating and made the rental process simple. Everything you need and more is at the home. It is beautifully decorated, clean, well maintained and very close to town with all the great restaurants and quaint shops. Driveway takes getting used to but is no problem once you get the hang of it. We all can't wait to go back again and will definitely stay in this home."

  • Nice quiet cabin in the woods

    "Frank's place is so much nicer than the pics show... surprisingly, it had a lot of room inside, very comfortable for a small family. My husband and I went to Helen for our 15th anniversary and we brought our 11 year old son who LOVED having his own bedroom in the loft; he said he felt like he had his own private treehouse! The beds were very comfortable, the layout was perfect, the decor was nice and there are great freestanding fans in each bedroom area, great for those like me who have to sleep with the sound of a fan! You are surrounded by thick woods, so you can hardly tell that you are actually in the middle of several other cabins. We would often hear other people but it was nothing bothersome as the trees blocked a lot of sound. The cabin is located in the other side of Unicoi national forest, and only about 8 minutes from downtown Helen (unless it is high traffic time outside the city itself, but there was never traffic around the cabin itself.) We saw several deer while traveling back and forth from town to our cabin. Our only other experience with the wildlife was the faint perfume of a skunk which we smelled around the front porch area on a couple of occasions, but it was nothing that lingered and we only noticed it going to and from the vehicle a couple of times. We only stayed for the weekend, so we didn't need a washer/dryer, but that would be the only downfall for those wishing to stay longer. (There seems to be a washer and dryer in the lower basement - we could see through the lower windows - but it is not available for access as the entry was on the outside and separately locked.) The hottub on the back deck was nice and clean, and the deck itself was nice for sitting and listening to the leaves rustle in the wind when the hottub wasn't on. Although there's no "view", I personally loved being surrounded by the forest. It made me feel much more secluded than I actually was. We will definitely keep Frank's Place on the top of the list for our next trip to Helen and I look forward to our next visit! Rent this place, you won't regret it!"

  • Great place to stay!

    "My family and I booked this townhouse to stay for 3 nights. We were very pleased with it. It is right as you come into Helen, very convenient. The owner is very nice and gave us a lot of information that helped us plan our visit. We will definitely be back!"
