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 stayed here for 3 nights and LOVED it! My son is 2 and he loved every bit of the cabin including the outside creek and back porch that we played on and in. The house is so shaded that we used the AC and fans and it was perfect temp the whole time. The decor is adorable. When I showed my friends and family our pics they were all jealous. I would highly recommend this cabin! We didn't have such a great time tubing with my son and so when I saw the area near our cabin we just hopped out and walked home. It was nice to be so close to the river and be able to walk. Helen was wonderful and this cabin totally made it for us! Highly recommend. My toddler did not like the shower but my husband and I didn't mind not having a real tub. The shower was very spacious and has a built in seat in it. The beds were comfy and rooms were spacious. I loved the living room and wish we'd been here in the fall and winter so we could use the fireplace. Hard wood floors are gorgeous and so are the fixtures everywhere. Super easy to sweep up.
I would love this property. Wish there were more like this! I would not hesitate a bit renting from this owner."

"My wife and kids met our Inlaws and wife's sister family there for a weeks vacation. The house had everything we could have ever wanted. From the large family room with open concept to the kitchen, to the huge game room/basement, to the awesome back porch with fire pit and hot tub, we made the most of everything it had to offer. It is within 15 minutes to the market in Cleveland as well as downtown Helen, a fantastic location. Would recommend this place to anyone!"

"This was our second year in this cabin, and it continues to be well maintained and very clean. The pictures do not do it justice. (Note: the table that is shown in the pictures has been replaced with one that seats up to 7.) Our kids enjoyed every minute of it, and are already bugging us to go again next year, which we intend to do. I highly recommend this cabin for any family or group that might be interested."
