Recent Helen vacation rental reviews

The accommodations were perfectly fine for our family reunion. The fact that there was a pool table, hot tub and Cornhole game made it that much better. The fact that there was a rule from the property owners association that only 4 cars could be parked at the house when the driveway accommodated 6 was a negative because there was no 24 hour parking in town.

Really loved the location and the ease of checking in. It was very quiet and walking distance from everything. I love that each suite had its own thermostat. It was very clean. Plenty of towels and when we had an issue customer service was on top of it. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would use the location and Vacasa again. Some critiques that might be helpful for future visitors: When we arrived the door code that was given to us did not work for the suite room and we had to call and wait on hold while the property manager was contacted. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and we both left with back pain. When one person laid on it, it was hard as a rock. When two people tried to lay on it, the heaviest person created a deep pocket and the lighter person had no choice but to basically roll into the pocket and ended up squished together. We both struggled to get much sleep because of the bed. On the day of checkout (10:00AM checkout time), someone barged into our room at 8:06 in the morning. We’re assuming it was either the property manager or a cleaning person. This is an easy and understandable mistake, but regardless of that, the person should have at the very least knocked before walking in just to be sure. We were still sleeping at that time and it scared us both half to death. It wasn’t a huge issue since we had to wake up within a few minutes anyway and we were in the bed so no one was changing clothes or anything like that, but had it been 15-30 minutes later the situation could have been much more awkward.

Where is Helen, GA?

Located in North Georgia along the Chattahoochee River, Helen is meant to be a replica of a Bavarian alpine town, a character that it pulls off well. Because of its scenic backdrop, residents and visitors of this town enjoy trails, water activities, fishing, and vineyards. Offering peace and quiet but also fun and games, our Helen cabins are a perfect mix of both worlds. 

Oktoberfest in Helen, GA 

There's a reason Helen is Georgia's third most visited city. Home to the Southeast's largest Oktoberfest, Helen takes much pride in this yearly festival. Helen's Oktoberfest is also the longest-running festival of its kind and lasts from mid-September through October 30. After the Oktoberfest parade, attendees head to Helen Festhalle, where Tapping of the Keg commences. Then it's on to all the German music, dancing, food, and drinks you can handle. 

Things to Do in Helen, GA

Oktoberfest isn't the only time that this town embraces the German culture. Because of its Bavarian influence, many of the restaurants in Helen serve German cuisine daily, with German get-ups to boot. Hofer's is a favorite breakfast joint among locals, but it also offers a cafe full of homemade breads and desserts. Don't forget to stop by the deli counter to order some German meat and cheese to go. Hansel and Gretel's is another wonderful dessert shop and specializes in fudge and chocolate. 

Early October is generally when autumn starts to emerge, and many people visit this area for the beauty that comes with the changing of the seasons. Summer is a busy time too, June and July being the busiest summer months. Tubing on the Chattahoochee is summer's most popular activity. Renting a tube, being shuttled to the starting point, and floating down the lovely river is as easy as it sounds - and even more relaxing! 

Unicoi State Park and the Chattahoochee National Forest are other spectacular specimens of Georgia nature. Anna Ruby Falls is a stunning double waterfall that's accessible via a quick half-mile hike on a convenient paved trail. From two viewing decks, pull out your camera or phone to take a few shots to remember for a lifetime. 

Day Trips from Helen, GA

Georgia's bustling city of Atlanta sits 86 miles from Helen. A mecca of dining and shopping, this capital city of Georgia stands in stark contrast to Helen. If you're looking for a more upbeat vibe for a day trip or two, this is the place to go. Check out the Georgia Aquarium, Turner Field, or one of several popular malls before heading back to your serene Helen vacation cabin rental. 

If you're looking to take a slightly longer road trip or if you're on the outskirts of Atlanta and find you don't have to head back to your vacation cabin just yet, travel just a few more miles to historic Morrow, GA. About 100 miles from Helen, this town offers the Georgia Archives, where all historical documents of Georgia are kept. 

The quiet town of Suwanee is 61 miles from Helen. With year-round festivals and a large park system, this quaint Georgia town is perfect for a change of pace. 

While Helen is fashioned as a Bavarian escape, don't let that fool you. The city still boasts that hospitality and comfort that Southern towns do. So if you're looking for a truly unique retreat in the heart of the Georgia mountains, it doesn't get any better than a stay in one of our Helen, GA vacation rentals. From cabin rentals on the river to pet-friendly vacation homes with private hot tubs, you are bound to find your next vacation getaway with Vacasa.
