Me and my boyfriend loved this hotel for our mini Valentines weekend trip! The staff was so nice and our room was newly renovated & right on the river. It’s conveniently located to everything in Helen! We walked all weekend and didn’t use our car which was awesome. We will definitely stay at this hotel again when we come back to Helen.
