The room was very nice and clean. The view was beautiful. Will be going back
Stacy J.May 2022
Nice, clean condo right on the river. Short walk to town, restaurants. City park right beside it. The deck over looking the river was great. Will be back!
Elaine H.May 2022
The condo back faces onto the river; view and sound of water was do relaxing. It's location is away from the hubbub very everything is an easy walk.
Condo was clean and very well equipped.
We had to call the phone number provided about a problem with the TV remote. When the lady on phone could not solve problem by trouble shooting, a very nice young man came by within a few minutes to determine the problem and provide a solution.
Would definitely stay at Rivers Edge again.
sadie C.May 2022
Being on the river was wonderful. It was the best stay away from home ever.
Allie B.May 2022
Cute little cottage right on the river. Clean and as pictured! Would definitely come back again ☺️
Amy R.Apr 2022
We loved our stay at this condo!! Great location and beautiful view!!
Randall C.Mar 2022
Home was clean and comfortable. Deck was very nice. Location was good, easy walk to town
William H.Mar 2022
Comfortable and clean. The pictures of the view from the back deck don’t do it justice.
Falyn W.Mar 2022
This is such a cute condo. This was our second time staying here. I love the balcony overlooking the river. It is so peaceful. It is within walking distance to everything, but far enough out of downtown to not be bothered by noise or crowds.
Claudia S.Feb 2022
Best Vacasa location. Impecable!
becca h.Jan 2022
Everything was perfect.
Angela M.Jan 2022
This was a nice little place. The outside could use a little work. It was clean and stocked with everything we needed. Although I did find a couple dirty spoons. It’s not fancy but it’s cute and better than a hotel by far. The view from the porch was very pretty. Parking was great although winter is a slow season. We walked to everything with ease but it was cold. Be advised this is listed as pet friendly and although I don’t mind and knew this before hand I did find some pet hair in the home and the washer/dryer. If you are allergic this may be an issue. Also please upgrade the paper towels and toilet paper. I did go buy some. The bed was just ok but I’m very picky. Maybe add a pillow topper. The pillows were useable but not great. Maybe add some k-pods too. I knew before hand to bring my own when reviewing the description but a few would be a nice touch. All in all it’s a great place to book and would stay here again.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Angela! We are glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate your valuable suggestions for improvement. We apologize if the cleanliness of the home left something to be desired, and we will follow up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Great cabin right on the water, easy walk to all the shops & restaurants in downtown Helen
Barbara I.Dec 2021
We love coming to Helen Ga. off season for a quiet get-a-way and wanted to try somewhere new to us.
This location was perfect. Beautiful view on the river, excellent well maintained condo and fully stocked with all the amenities needed for a few days of relaxation. Only downside at the condo, bring your own toilet paper or use the roughest paper ever, Seriously! Small issue for some but several days in a row....very uncomfortable. We will return but bring our own.
Also, not the owners fault, but everywhere you want to park in Helen is now $10 per day, even off-season on extremely quiet week days, so plan to walk or bring lots of cash to park. That includes most stores and restaurants since they don't own their parking lots.
Chris J.Nov 2021
Wonderfully appointed condo on the edge of the river that runs across the North edge of Helen, was within walking distance of everything and loved relaxing to the sound of the river on the back patio. Comfortable bed, great kitchen, comfortable living room...would definitely stay here again.
Jill R.Nov 2021
Awesome location, great unit, perfect place for everything. Would Definately recommend!
William B.Sep 2021
The location and cleanliness of the unit.
Will come back!
Kevin E.Aug 2021
This condo has an awesome location. Right on the river. Very relaxing to just sit and watch the tubers go by.
Sandra H.Aug 2021
Easy walking distance to everything and the back deck over the river was a refreshing spot to watch tubers during the day and the peaceful waters in the evenings and mornings.
Cheryl K.Jul 2021
Bad is the furniture in the living room...pull out couch and chair need replaced...couch is also bed and not comfortable at all....chair u sink in and very uncomfortable. View is awesome with tubes going by in summer. Everything else was great. Just bring an airbed is my advice.
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!
roy p.Jul 2021
This felt like a place you could stay forever. Accommodations top notch, location perfect and so comfortable.
Mike H.Jul 2021
The location is excellent! Patio/deck is right on the water with a clear view of everything. Water is easily accessible for the kids and family and was a lot of fun! Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance as well, which is a plus. Only down side was the sofa bed needs to be replaced and is just about unusable it is so uncomfortable. That is really the only negative. Still worthy of 5 stars though since I wasn’t the one sleeping on it. Lol!!
Christi K.Jun 2021
Went here for my 50th birthday. We were looking for something within walking distance to town and wanted to be on the water. This was perfect. The best part was being right at the Chattahoochee River and people watching the tubers! Great place to stay you won’t regret it!
Christopher G.Jun 2021
Loved the location and view. Everything walkable. Sofa bed mattress could use an upgrade.

Jared W.Apr 2021
Nice place to stay. Central location to everything Helen. The river is beautiful and calming to listen to. The only “complaint” I have is the noise from the floor above. You can hear every step your upstairs neighbor takes. But it was a clean place to stay. We enjoyed it very much so. Thanks!
Samuel P.Mar 2021
We loved being so close to the Chattahoochee River. Listening through the screen door as well as sitting on the porch just watching the river flow by - how peaceful. The condo was very comfortable, clean and close enough for a walk to Main Street! Would love to stay again!
Blake C.Mar 2021
We had the best time in Helen. We were walking distance from everything and the room was nice, clean, and cozy. The view off the deck was so peaceful. I also wanted to include how honest the host and cleaning lady were. I left my expensive purse in the room without knowing. We thought we lost it shopping and i was devastated. Upon arriving back home without it, my husband received a phone call that the cleaning lady had found it and the host was mailing it back. That alone would bring us back time and time again. It’s so hard to find honesty these days. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Helen for my family and i.
Jaime G.Jan 2021
Condo was agreeable and clean. Only drawback was, the given code to open the door did not work and had to call numerous times to get the correct one.

We have checked the codes and they are correct and working as of now. Please note check-in time is 4 PM and the door codes will not work until after check-in time.

CYNTHIA B.Dec 2020
We did like the location of this condo. It was too noisy for us to sleep is the reason for the review.
Thank you for your review, Cynthia! We apologize for the noise issues you experienced, and we encourage guests to reach out to our management team during their stay should any assistance be needed. We're happy to hear that you were still able to enjoy this cozy condo by the river. Thank you again for this feedback. We hope to host you again for a more relaxing stay in the future.
shirley l.Dec 2020
I loved being in the river and having a great view of it.
STACIE C.Dec 2020
We loved that it was on the water. Very convenient to everything. The pictures on Vacasa are not of this particular condo so don’t think the condo is that nice. It was not decorated at all. It slept 4 people but the fold out couch does not have pillows, I had to purchase some from the Dollar General. Parking leaves a lot to be desired.
Vicky F.Nov 2020
Very noisy on the weekend and parking was bad. During the week it was nice and quiet and parking was fine. I think black out curtains on the bedroom sliding glass doors would be better to keep out the bright outside lighting. There was dirt piled up under the garage area so you couldn't park there when the front spaces were filled up on the weekend. Did love the deck and view. Nice clean rooms and comfy bed. Will definitely come back.
Thank you for choosing to stay with Vacasa! We are sorry you encountered some issues while in the home. We appreciate your feedback, and I have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can work to improve the home for future guests. Please know our guest services team is available 24 hours a day to assist guests should any concerns arise while in the home. We hope to host you again soon!
Troy M.Oct 2020
Very nice place,, great view, and great location to town. We walked everywhere once we got there. Will definitely be back
Caroline M.Oct 2020
Wonderful condo! Beautiful with everything needed for an enjoyable getaway. Calming sound of the Chattahoochee River is relaxing and condo is close enough to walk to the town of Helen. Great experience!
Dyna W.Oct 2020
Would stay here again.
Michael O.Sep 2020
Beautiful view of the river within walking distance of everything in Helen.
Kevin E.Sep 2020
Stayed here for an overnight getaway and it was awesome. The condo has everything you need. Spent most of the evening sitting on the deck listening to the river. Just what the doctor ordered.
Jennifer B.Aug 2020
So close to shops and restuarants. Loved the beautiful views of the river.
John S.Aug 2020
Great view of the river, very clean, close walk to town and some places to eat
Evelyn B.Aug 2020
The condo itself is wonderful, we've stayed here before, but the outside area needs some work.
STACEY H.Aug 2020
This view was amazing! Love the closeness of all shops and restaurants. Thank you for a comfortable bed in the master! I’ve paid $1200 for a cabin with crap mattresses several times at different locations in Helen so that was a big deal to us. Place was very clean with lots of little touches that matter: hair dryer, plenty of towels, couple of kcups, trash bags (used for our wet clothes!), and the shampoo smelled so good to name a few. We tubed and tapped out right at our unit because it’s super close to the end of the tubing trail. We loved it and would absolutely stay again. The ONLY complaint: pull out couch was painful for the teenagers. Price, accommodations and location trumps that. I’d bring a blow up mattress next time.
CHRISTOPHER N.Aug 2020
Nice and clean room, close to shops, restaurants, fishing, and tubing. Minutes from Unicoi state park which we visited also.
Paul J M.Aug 2020
The location and place were perfect for us!
Ramona M.Jul 2020
Very clean. Entire unit is updated. Plenty of room. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and tubing. Great view of the river from the back porch.
Shane R.Jun 2020
We loved it!!! Great view of creek and mountains.
Bradley T.Jun 2020
Dealing with VRBO (who I booked through) and Vacassa was confusing and unwieldly. From the beginning it was made clear from Vacassa that they did not want to be contacted or bothered with your questions or problems. When they sent the wrong number for the key we were stuck on the units porch in the rain with no one to contact. We called the 503 number on the reservation which informed us we would have a very, very long wait. When I went back through the emais I found another code which worked, thankGod or I would still be out there. When we got there the welcome literature stated if we had a problem that we could not resolve and absolutely could not be ovderlooked we should call the same 503 number with the very, very long wait. Not the way to run a management company.
The property was nice and this is the 3rd time we stayed there. Probably won't stay again as dealing (or not dealing) withe Vacasa was undoable
Thank you for your review, Bradley. We apologize for the long hold times during the peak of the pandemic. We have worked hard to ensure additional staffing and are pleased to note that we are able to once again assist all of our guests in a timely manner. We are glad you were able to locate your check-in information provided by email and apologize for any confusion in accessing that information. We hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a truly exceptional experience in the future.
Raven M.Jun 2020
We had a small hiccup trying to use the keyless entry but they are in the process of correcting this. The condo was very clean and sits right on the river. Cooked breakfast and drank Mimosas on the balcony, it was perfect. You are also walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. I could not have ask for a better weekend.
PENNY K.Jun 2020
The porch overlooking the River and access to the river was awesome. We will definitely be back.
Janine G.Mar 2020
Cozy and comfortable little one bedroom getaway for us and the pooch.. had everything we needed on the chattahoochee.. walking distance to town and cute park to walk to dog.. 4 star rating... Not fancy, but, clean , cute and what we were looking for
Lorie L.Feb 2020
Beautiful view from our balcony. Room was very clean. Accommodations were great. Furniture was comfortable and clean. Only issue was the rain... nothing negative with our choice of location. Walking distance to everything if it had not rained
Mark F.Feb 2020
Loved staying here. Had everything we needed and more. Close to downtown and being on the River was beautiful!
Edgardo R.Jan 2020
The apartment was clean, great view. Wife enjoyed the staying.
James B.Jan 2020
Our condo looked just like the pictures.
Loved the deck but was too cold to sit our there long. Condo was cozy, only issues we had was the keurig needed to be cleaned on the inside and the extra blankets in bedroom did not smell good, possibly not fully dry when they were folded up and got musty.
I would rent this condo again if anything for the view of the river. Would love to be on the deck in the summer!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. This is not the standard of cleanliness that we hold ourselves too. We have notified our local team to address this with housekeeping. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you will allow us to host you again.
Michael T.Jan 2020
We had an amazing stay! The place was great and Helen is a charming place. It rained the two days we were there so we couldn't enjoy the balcony as much as we would've like to. With all of the rain, it made Anna Ruby Falls even more spectacular and we still got to ride on the mountain coaster a few times. Big Daddy's restaurant was great and it was right across the street.
The booking process was easy and the place was very clean. Thanks for a great stay!
William S.Nov 2019
Nice accommodations. Close to everything. Awesome location overlooking the river. Will be back.
Tracy D.Nov 2019
The condo was very nice and had everything I could possibly need. Very cozy and a spectacular view of the river.
amy m.Oct 2019
Condo was super nice and clean. Gorgeous location on the river that’s is quiet and still a short walk to all the shops!
jason m.Oct 2019
Very comfortable, well designed place. We will try to get this place again next year. The location is great.
Christopher W.Oct 2019
Loved the updated and clean condo! Sitting on the porch overlooking the river was great and love that it is within walking distance to all of Helen. We stay in Helen every fall and I love that this place was actually pet friendly!
Leah P.Oct 2019
Amazing condo!!! We absolutely loved the location! Stayed here for Oktoberfest and everything was just a few minutes walk away. So tranquil relaxing at night listening to the river! Will definitely book this again!
TAYLOR E.Sep 2019
The whole place and location was very nice. Loved how close it was to everything. Will definitely recommend to anyone and will stay again.
Mary S.Aug 2019
Loved the view and the furnishings!
Frances L.Aug 2019
Sitting on deck watching people go by on tubes peaceful and relaxing
Wanda H.Aug 2019
The condo was clean and had everything we needed. Simple and clear check in process, great communication and our room was even ready for early check in!
LOURDES R.Jul 2019
Great apartment, well taken care of with everything you need for a comfortable stay and a delightful deck over the river to enjoy the sounds of water sipping a chilled glass of wine! Recommend it highly!!
Rita D.Jun 2019
Clean, nice decor, good furniture, great deck overlooking the river for quiet morning coffee and fun afternoon people-watching, within walking distance of town and restaurants. We loved that *all* of the amenities were provided - the owners thought of everything you might need. The one teeny tiny thing we would note is that it would be helpful to tell guests there is a Keurig coffee pot, in case they want to bring some pods.
Carolyn T.Jun 2019
We stayed here before and the new owners have made some improvements that enhance the enjoyment like tall chairs on the balcony overlooking the floaters at the rapids. We watched many hours. Very short walk into the village and several good eateries within walking distance. We will be back.
Rhonda H.May 2019
I have visited Helen for many years and I love the river view. This condo had it all! Great river view and clean, comfortable place! I will definitely stay here again!
Joe J.Apr 2019
Very clean, easy access and walking distance to all of Helen shops and stores. Right on the water. A little dated but all the amenities you need for very affordable stay.
Terrence M.Mar 2019
This condo was great. With great views, easy access to the area, I couldn't have asked for a better place.
