Park your car and walk to town. Finished in the late summer of 2009, this is one of the newest luxury cabins in Helen. For about the same price as a motel suite, you get 2 big bedrooms, living/dining rooms, full kitchen, washer & dryer and two jetted bathtubs.

The fully equipped kitchen has solid surface countertops & ceramic tile floors, microwave, and dishwasher. Make Helen Riverside Cabin your luxury 'base camp' for exploring all of Northeast Georgia.

What's in the cabin.: All cooking utensils and linens are provided. All furniture and appliances are brand new. There are jetted bath tubs in each bath with a two person jetted tub in the downstairs bath. The floors in the baths are also ceramic tile. Towels and linens are provided. There is 32' flat screen TV w DVD player in the living room and a 22' flat screen TV w DVD player upstairs. Free WiFi service is available.The owners live in Helen, so if there are any problems, we'll be there to make it right.

The covered riverside deck looks over the Chattahoochee River. The street side view looks over horse pastures and toward historic Hamby Mountain. Located within walking distance to restaurants, shops and activities in Helen, Helen's Riverside Cabin is also just minutes from Unicoi State Park, Anna Ruby Falls, the Old Sautee General Store, Innsbruck Golf Course, Appalachian Trail, Lake Burton, Lake Chatuge, and much more. Let this be your luxury 'base camp' for exploring all of Northeast Georgia.

The Chattahoochee River flows under the Hamby Street bridge and between Carrie Cox Dr. and Unicoi St.. just 50' from our cabin!

Wonderful Mother/Daughter Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My mother and I shared a memorable week together! The cabin was perfect, even better in person. It was clean and in "like new" condition. Listening and looking at the river while relaxing in our rocking chairs quickly became our morning and evening ritual. We were walking distance to all the action, yet felt the location itself was private. We felt safe, comfortable and the location was convenient. We took days trips to nearby towns (Hiawassee and Highlands, NC), went hiking, shopping and ate at many good restaurants. The cabin quickly felt like home and we were really able to relax. I had to work a little and was glad to have WiFi. We enjoyed it so much, we plan to come back again next year, hopefully for a bit longer. Thank you David!

Great Vacation!

We have a young family and stayed here for a week for our first official family vacation. We had such a great time in the town, on the river and in the comfy cabin. Thanks so much David, we will definitely recommend to others and hope to make it back there soon.

This cabin is beautiful! The pictures don't do it justice. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends, family, etc. Would even love to come back and stay again ourselves! Home is well maintained. Short walk to Betty's Country Store, Family Buffet Restaurant and uptown.

Our "home away from home" in Helen!

We have stayed here every year since David built the cabin, and would not consider staying anywhere else in the area. This cabin is perfect if you want quiet, rustic-feeling with modern conveniences right at the edge of the river and a very easy walk to downtown and Betty's, and of course, a short drive to all of the other attractions in the area. The street is very private without being isolated, and some of the horses which pull the carriages downtown are stabled across and down the street. Everything is very well-planned and well-maintained, and the individual local owner is always very professional, responsive and accessible. Some issues with internet service, but it is a cabin in the mountains, so not critical to us - mostly using it for apple tv which kept timing out. Everything still feels just as fresh and new as the first time we stayed, and it was only rented once before our first visit. 99.99% perfect overall Helen cabin experience!

Wonderful Location! Clicked All The Boxes!

  • 4 of 5
Helen Riverside Cabin was wonderfully located within walking distance of everything, yet had an ultra-quiet & in-the-woods by the river location. I couldn't imagine a better location. The cabin itself was extremely well-equipped, beautifully appointed and comfortable. Why 4-stars instead of 5? Although there are two jacuzzi bathtubs....it could use one outside please. A gas fireplace would be a major improvement in ambiance....the electric fake fireplace is dumb.....take it out.....better without it. Do those two things and it will be 5-star.
