About the neighbourhood
From everything alpine, best German food, festivals galore, outdoor adventures, historic tours and even a cabbage patch farm you cannot get bored in Helen. Spend a day hunting for that unique antique or tasting wine then float down the river to finish at the beer fest Oktoberfest before relaxing by the fire pit overlooking town back st the lodge
Getting around
You are just above the heart of Helen and it's just a 10 min hike down to Main Street. You can also park at the Unicoi forest park near the bottom so you don't have to fight traffic but will still have a ride back up to the lodge.
