We arrived around 10:30pm so it was very dark. The directions given to us to get to the upper floor of building B were terrible. There is no staircase from the lower to upper level. We had to lug all our stuff back to check-in for directions. There was an upper walkway to the second floor with a giant B, but we could not see it in the dark. Here’s a tip: Lowe’s sells a solar spotlight for about $15. We got into our room and someone was smoking (not allowed) next door and it came into our room. We were awakened very early as there were overhead skylights but we were exhausted and needed sleep. I wanted out of that place ASAP.

We came to Helen for Memorial day weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. Everyone was super nice and helpful. The room and public areas were very clean. There was one person, though, who really made our stay amazing, and that was Rhonda! She was the lodge's shuttle driver, and she was wonderful. She was super helpful and friendly, and was always available when we called to get a ride around town. She also has some great stories about the area, and was just q pleasure to be around.
