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 go karts 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 believe. 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 little steep. Thanks Cindy for all of your help and for going out of your way and hurrying to ship my left behind clothes before she left for going out of town!! She's seriously the best!! She feels like a friend and it shows with all the sweet notes people leave behind for her!"

"We had a great time at the cabin and enjoyed lots of hiking around Helen, Georgia. The cabin was clean, well equipped, and exactly as advertised. We were very happy when we pulled up and got inside- perfect place to stay! It was only 2 adults and 1 dog so we had plenty of space. We loved listening to the river from the deck during the day, nice hot tub to relax in at night, and easy access to waterfall/dog friendly hiking! The river was a little bit of a walk but there were stairs to the bottom. Kitchen is well equipped too, we cooked every meal at the cabin. You won't be sorry you booked here!"

"Myself, my brother, my cousin & his wife spent 2 nights at Bear Crossing. We were attending a family reunion @ Unicoi State Park only a mile away, so convenient. This is the most comfortable, organized, family oriented and clean cabin I have yet to stay in! A wonderful location, beautiful surroundings, we even had a black bear walking down the driveway, but hurried along when we all screamed! I have Alzheimer's and very uncomfortable in strange surroundings, but I was so relaxed and slept like a baby. I even fed the stray cat at the back door! Sorry! I'm a cat lover & it cried & melted my heart! I would highly recommend this cabin rental to anyone and can't wait to go back myself sometime. Thank you Susan & Jerry!!"

"The cabin was like an art gallery. Folk art was everywhere! The layout was great for multiple families or like us, alot of kids.There were a lot of games, which made for a great family time. Also, a great place for hiding and swek in the cabin. My girls loved it! The owner was such a nice person. I would definitely be back again. I would and have recommended this cabin to everyone. Everything you need is there, including spices, cleaning supplies, towels, etc. We plan on coming back again."
