The location of the property was perfect. It was an easy walk to most restaurants, shops, and other attractions. The hotel is also situated along the river so guests can just sit and enjoy the sounds of nature. The rooms were decorated nicely. My only complaint is that the porch light outside the room stayed on all night, was very bright, and lit the entire room all night which made it hard to sleep.

The room was beautiful and we had a view of the river. We came to Helen for my birthday and I surprised my wife and booked this room for a romantic getaway. I would LOVE to come stay again soon!! Please notify me of any deals you have on pricing.
