Vacation home in Helen with kitchen and fireplace

If this bungalow is booked on the dates you're wanting, please try our bungalow next door (Helen)

Bedroom 1 (Queen) Bedroom 2, twin beds, one twin trundle (closest to window) that can be moved to stationary twin to make king, if preferred. Full bath with tub/shower.
Pet friendly for our well behaved friends. Please help us stay pet friendly by picking up behind your pets outside.

We are NOT riverfront as Expedia (who partners with VRBO) is describing. Instead, we are across the street. Approx. 50ft away, the old bridge offers access to the Chattahoochee River & fly fishing paradise. The rocking chair front porch is a favorite and offers some views of the river. Save on parking fees by staying with us, downtown. Walk to Liquor store and our famous Betty"s Country Store (IGA) for groceries. Walk to many restaurants including Paul's Steak House where you can dance the night away at Paul's Margarita Deck. Enjoy the Indoor Fun Factory with skating rink, go-carts, laser tag, bouncy house & arcade on sunny and rainy days. Water park & tubing during those warm summer days and don't forget the zip lines & rollercoaster, one of our favorites. Helen offers something for everyone.

The best location!
We stayed for a week for our spring hiking trip. The cottage is absolutely perfect for a getaway to Helen. The owner is easy to reach for any questions, the cottage is clean and has everything you need and the best location. You can park in your driveway, walk to town in minutes to any number of restaurants, shops and bars and never have to worry about parking or weekend traffic.
