Cabin Holiday Rental
Unlike most cabins in the area, our cabin is right in Alpine Helen. Located on the Chattahoochee River, it's just a short walk into downtown Alpine Helen and the Oktoberfest 'Festhall'. Built in 2009, this is one of the newest luxury cabins in Helen. For about the same price as a motel suite, you get 2 big bedrooms, a living & dining room, full kitchen, and two bathrooms with jetted bathtubs. Best of all, you get the privacy that a motel room could never offer. The cabin also has free WiFi and three smart tvs. The covered riverside deck looks over the Chattahoochee River. The street side view looks over horse pastures and toward historic Hamby Mountain. Located within walking distance to restaurants, shops and activities in Helen, the cabin is also just minutes from Unicoi State Park, ...Unlike most cabins in the area, our cabin is right in Alpine Helen.

Christmas in Helen
Wonderful - This cabin is the bomb. Close to everything someone would want. Walk right into Helen yet not in the public eye. At the cabin we felt in our own little world. Great for day trips. We will be back. So cozy. The owners are wonderful.

Well-Appointed & Unbeatable Location
Helen Riverside Cabin was wonderfully located within walking distance of everything, yet had an ultra-quiet & in-the-woods by the river location. I couldn't imagine a better location. The cabin itself was extremely well-equipped, beautifully appointed and comfortable. Why 4-stars instead of 5? Although there are two jacuzzi bathtubs inside....it could use one outside please.....this i9s a vacation property. A gas fireplace would be a major improvement in ambiance....the electric fake fireplace is dumb.....take it out.....better without it. Do those two things and it will be 5-star.

Thanks for the review. We did have a gas fireplace when we originally started renting and had several complaints from guests about not liking the gas smell from the logs. So, we bought a high quality electric fireplace that is simple to operate and poses no issues as far as odors.

Great Location
This was a great cabin in a great location! We stopped and chilled a bit while tubing just because we could. Right on the river and with a great view. The cabin was clean and the owner was easy to deal with. When we go back to Helen we will try to stay here again.

Perfect!
My husband and I shared the cabin for 6 days with another couple. It was perfect. And exactly as described in the ad. The bedrooms were spacious and had nice comfy beds. All linens were provided. The kitchen was stocked with just above everything we needed. The only thing missing was an ovenproof dish but that was easily fixed with an tinfoil pan from the dollar store. The location is excellent. It's about a 5 minute walk to the grocery store and 10 minutes to "downtown". David was great to deal with to make the booking and also with a minor issue we had at the cabin.

Wonderful Winter Wonderland
Our stay was so wonderful! The cabin was beautiful and clean with lots of natural light. It's tucked away right on the river with a beautiful view. I can't wait to go back! David is super nice and very helpful. The toilet seat in the master bathroom broke while we were staying there and David was there to fix it right away. I would recommend anyone I know to rent this cabin. You will make wonderful memories there.

Perfect Location!
Our recent stay at this cabin was great! Plenty of room. Very clean, luxery cabin at a bargain price! Kids loved playing by the river out back. You had a secluded feel but close to town. We loved everything about it and will use it for every trip back to Helen!
