A FEW COMMENTS BEFORE WE TELL YOU ABOUT OUR PLACE; We are Certificate of Excellence recipients of TripAdvisor which means we offer spectacular properties and great customer service to our guests. Our property is a two unit cabin and you are renting the UPPER UNIT which has its own private entrance and deck. there are some stairs from the driveway leading up to it. This is not a shared space inside, for example; think of a 2 unit condo on nearly half an acre of private wooded land with seprate exterior entrances. You can rent both units for large groups or families to sleep a total of 8 people so just ask! The listing number on Flipkey/TripAdvisor for the lower unit is #9620942 so you can see photos and pricing for that unit. LOCATION; The Cutest Cabin in Helen sits just off downtown Main Street and the Chattahoochee River. There is no rental home closer to Helen than our place! A 60 second walk to the epicenter of Downtown Helen yet you are set back enough for some peace and quiet with lovely views and nature from our decks. Note if you are a very light sleeper you may wish to bring ear plugs as you can hear some hustle and bustle from town on some nights. Most people are not bothered at all and we have a floor fan for white noise if you choose to use it. It personally never bothers our family. The roller Coaster is a 2 minute walk from our cabin. Not driving is great because of the traffic, pricey and crowded parking issues and of course getting behind the wheel after drinking a few of those famous German lagers and stouts. Renting a place in Helen where no car is needed is a HUGE PLUS for most people!!! THE SPACE; The air conditioned/heated two-level cabin is 1856 square feet under air and has three separate exterior decks both covered and open offering over 2700 square feet in total of living space. The upper unit is bright, open and over 1100 sq ft in size. The home sits on just under a half acre with a large private driveway for free secure parking. The upper level also has its own separate entry with one bedroom, a huge full bath, large free standing Jacuzzi tub, full kitchen, kitchen table and chairs and a huge great room that is totally open to the kitchen. The upper unit has a great deck space and balcony. It is beautifully done, open concept, bright and airy with tons of windows with nice views. You will find it to be furnished for a very comfy stay with everything you need such as; bedding, towels, linens, extensive kitchen items, two TVs with Roku along with Netflix, Wi-Fi, deck furniture and some board games for those occasional rainy days. You can rent both units for large groups or families and that will sleep a total of 8 people so just ask! Again, this listing is for the upper unit which sleeps 4 people. It has a king bed and a queen size blow up mattress with pump. THE DÉCOR AND VIEWS AND PARKING; Without hesitation we can tell you our cabin is stunningly beautiful with outstanding décor and conceptual design throughout. The great room is wide open and gorgeous with beautiful wood craftsmanship and décor along with gleaming hardwood floors with custom design work. The ceilings are vaulted with sky lights giving it a bigger feel than the actual size. It is true Bavarian style ski chalet from the outside and an extraordinary updated cabin filled with charm and character on the inside. You can hear and see the river from our property. The expansive downtown views are excellent year round, but when the leaves drop the elevated views of downtown Helen below our property are amazing. The driveway can fit one vehicle per rental, not per guest, in an assigned spot. NO RV's or trailers due to the steep driveway. NO SMOKING/ VAPING / DRUGS / PARTYING / LOUD BEHAVIOR OR MUSIC THE TOWN OF HELEN; If you have never been to Helen before you are in for a treat. It is a Bavarian style town with great beer halls and bars, restaurants and shopping, nature oriented adventures and a ton of family fun activities. By law all architecture must be Bavarian in style, even the fast food joints! In addition, if you want to explore the surrounding areas the natural wonders are incredible for hiking, watefalls, kayaking, swimming, fishing, golfing, vineyards, etc. During the summer, people tube right down the river in front of our cabin. There are larges lakes with public beach access close by and many festivals throughout the year. Helen is the 3rd most visited town in Georgia despite having only 500 full time residents. IN SUMMARY; Without a doubt you will not find a better location or a cuter place than ours, all at an affordable rate compared to those standard run of the mill hotels. We also send out a fantastic 10 page trip planner document to all of our guests covering everything from check in procedures and directions to the best restaurants and beer halls and surrounding adventure stuff to do, plus lots more.

Very convenient setting with only short minutes walk to everything in town. Excellent restaurants and fun bars with lots of entertainment for all. The Cabin was very exceptional and unexpectedly furnished. Even though it rained every day, the Cabin and atmosphere made “walking between the drops” a specially nice Anniversary event !!! Thank you for “A little bit of Heaven” which we will not forget !

We arrived at the cutest little cabin in Helen on a Friday. This place has fantastic great views of the city as well as a rustic quaint atmosphere inside the cabin. The owners are extremely organized, the cabin is very clean and relaxing, and it fit all of our needs and surpassed our expectations.

Needed a break from staring at the same four walls for the past year, so we rented this cabin in Helen. We stayed in the upper unit which has higher ceilings and better views of the town . The town was lit up 24 hours/day the entire time we were there. The cabin is quite nice and well-appointed. As it's roughly a 900 sqft single bedroom apartment, it's actually quite spacious. We did a combination of eating in restaurants, take-out and preparing our own meals. The kitchen is functional and has the needed implements (pots, pans, dishes, utensils, etc.) and has a dishwasher so you're not spending your trip cleaning dishes. As this is a vacation rental and not a hotel, there's no daily housekeeping, so make sure to bring your own paper towels and toilet paper if you're staying more than a day or two. The bed and furniture are comfortable and it was a very pleasant stay. As indicated, the location is great. You're at the edge of this tiny town which you can easily walk in its entirety. Each morning, I'd walk from one end to the other (from one "Welcome to Helen" sign to the other). You can hike further by taking the Unicoi trail at the back of the park in town. It goes through woods to Unicoi State Park. The town has lots of restaurants (predominantly German-themed, with a couple other options for things like pizza and fast food), cutesy shops and a grocery store which seemed surprisingly well-sized and stocked for a town of only 500 people. I highly recommend the Heidelberg restaurant (the one upstairs, not the bar downstairs) for a good dinner with good beer selection. I also recommend the Alpine Brew Store to pick up German beer either for your stay or to bring back home. Staying in town has its advantages in that the town doesn't really condone street parking although there are plenty of pay lots off the side roads. I liked the flexibility to walk over to the local bakery, coffee house, grocer, etc. whenever I wanted. Be warned that due to a combination of being off-season and covid that many places were not maintaining their regular hours. Some shops/restaurants were only open Thursday-Sunday or Friday-Monday or similar. So if there's a specific place you intend to visit, call ahead. And finally, yes, the driveway is steep and it can feel awkward backing out down the hill while trying to avoid another car parked at the side of the driveway. We were luckier in that no one rented the downstairs unit during our stay so it wasn't a problem for us. If you have a low car like a Prius, it might cause some angst.

First of all, I must say the cabin was very nice. Very cute and charming. But the cabin driveway, was very very steep, with a sharp turn going up to the first level of the cabin.coming in. We drove off the main road , and turned into the driveway, our truck could not make the sharp turn, so had to back up, and then go up. There was a car in the lower condo, so going down was even harder, trying to miss the car and getting past the sharp turn.

Glad you found our cabin cute and charming. Sorry you had issues with the driveway. However, you are the first guest in over 500 families staying to have that issue. So anyone reading this can consider that stats. Thanks.

Its in THE perfect location to downtown Helen. The Georgia Alipine coaster is right next door. Paul's margarita bar and steak house restaurants are a hop skip and a jump. SO convenient. The shops are right there which my wife loved. The house/cabin was perfect for a 2 person adult in the one bed and kids on the blow up mattress. No regular TV but they had free access to Netlix!

Recently enjoyed a great stay at this cute place, just steps from downtown Helen. The cabin was clean and well-furnished with plenty of room. The in-town location was perfect for walking, with easy access to lots of shops and restaurants. It was also an ideal home base for exploring elsewhere in the area.

We really enjoyed the cabin. It was very clean and comfortable. The cabin is in a good location and has ample outside lighting for your security. Close to Downtown restaurants and shops. You do not have to move your car to drive to the Downtown places because everything is so close. The hosts were great to provide us with valuable and accurate information prior to arriving. The only thing I will add is that if you rent the upper unit, be aware of the flights of stairs you have to walk up and down to arrive to the unit. Overall, phenomenal cabin and well organized hosts. Thank you very much for your hospitality. 😊👍
