I am a real estate broker that loves to travel to unique destinations. Since I was a young girl my family visited Helen Ga. regularly and I have continued that same cherished tradition with my four children. My 25 years in the real estate industry instilled a strong rule that I live by when investing - LOCATION is Everything! When a great property hit the market in Helen that was riverfront and steps to downtown + next door to a new water park I made the move to finally own property in the vacation destination I had always cherished. I am proud to say that move was one of the best moves I have ever made. Our kids and their friends can enjoy the freedom to walk and explore without worry or the hassle of us chauffeuring. The adults can visit the sites, shopping & pubs to enjoy Oktoberfest then tube or walk home. After your visit I am sure you will love this Bavarian getaway as much as we do! Happy Travels, Renee and Sam Simchon

Renee Simchon purchased this chalet in 2005

I grew up in Hartwell, Georgia and often visited Helen to tube the Hooch and sunset horseback ride through the streams. When Sam and I married in 1996 we spent our honeymoon weekend in Helen visiting the parks, enjoying the Bavarian town, visiting the waterfalls & kayaking. In 2005 we finally purchased our own riverside retreat downtown Helen. Our four children, friends and colleagues have grown to love our retreat as much as we do. After visiting hundreds of times and consistent market watch, we purchased our perfect location downtown and riverfront. Our kids and their friends can safely roam while we enjoy our own activities and the car stays in the garage the whole time we are there. We know you will truly enjoy all that Helen has to offer! Renee' and Sam Simchon

Only steps to downtown Helen & Riverside..The best Helen can offer. Waterpark next door, tubes at the front steps, shopping, dining, winery, waterfalls, horseback riding, ziplines, golf courses and so much more. In the heart of Helen..your only problem will be deciding what to enjoy first!

Renee, We so much enjoyed our stay in your beautiful condo Christmas Eve
and Christmas Day. I love the way you have decorated your condo, especially
with the Native American Indian decor.My husband got to do what he loves
to do most, fishing right out side your door. He didn't catch anything but
that was okay. We would love to come back again possibly in the spring or
fall.
Have a Happy New Year!

We just returned home from our stay at the Alpine Riverside Retreat and it was great. The condo is decorated beautifully and was very clean. The beds were comfortable and everything we needed was there. I also loved the location. We were able to walk to great restaurants (Mullers Cafe and Bodensee) and the condo is very close to the Fest Halle and the main drag (but not so close that there is noise). The owner was very responsive when I had questions. We will be back. Great property and great location.

This condo was perfectly decorated, spacious, and comfortable. We really enjoyed the local entertainment and tubing; everything was within walking distance. The swing by the river was a nice touch. A very relaxing vacation and would definitely stay in this condo again in the future.

My family's first visit to Helen was made so much nicer because of our stay at the condo. Very clean and spacious with anything we could have wanted or needed. Loved the fact that two master suites are on the second floor. It provided the sense of privacy but we were still able to "monitor" the teenagers. Decks provided great outside space for drinking coffee in the morning or (whatever) in the evenings while watching the river. Close to all the "fun" things to do (tubing, water park) and downtown for shopping. Thank you for the use of your lovely condo. Would absolutely return.
