5/5 Excellent

Nice place right on the river
Location was good able to walk to everything in town the condo was very clean but just a little dated. Much better than a hotel room. Will definitely stay again

5/5 Excellent

Nice view
Such a sweet little spot, not too busy area with short walk distance to everything. Thoroughly enjoyed the view and distance to river!

4/5 Good

Fun in Helen Ga with a beautiful view
This property is beautiful with a gorgeous view of the river that runs through Helen Ga. We had so much fun watching the tubers float down the river. Everything was in walking distance. We enjoyed our stay very much.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location great for the family
We stayed here with our family of 5 and had a great time. The master bedroom overlooks a shared condo patio with a picnic bench and the stairs go directly down to the river where you can get right in. Large TVs in each room were great, and WiFi worked perfectly. Parking was easy right in front but you can walk to a lot of places. I usually can’t sleep well on a mattress that is not my own, but the king size bed had a pillow top and was soooo comfortable. Even the pillows were fabulous. The washer dryer combo is older and required several cycles to dry a small load. We did have an issue with the ac not working when we got there, but the property manager worked to resolve the issue right away. We would definitely stay here again, the kids loved playing in the River and the park right next to the condo.

5/5 Excellent

Great location and beautiful view
This was a last minute trip and it was great! The location was right next to a park, so my child and the family dog had a great time. It was a great location! We walked with no problem to main Street Helen for shopping and food and right down the road to putt putt. No complaints other than had a couple of questions and texted to the owner or property manager and never heard back. I had to call and sit on hold for one of my questions and then got disconnected, so had to call back. Once I got a rep, it was good but that was the only part that wasn't perfect, EVERYTHING ELSE WAS!! We will be coming back!
