The terrace level doors open outside and there is a simple firepit for roasting those marshmallows under stars.

The Bavarian Pit Stop Cabin is suitable for families with kids, groups of friends, motorcycle and trailer friendly. The cabin has three stories with stairs, although the staircases are straight and extra wide, it still has limited handicap accessibility to the levels with bedrooms. Being on top of the mountain close to the city it has very good cell phone service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely visit to Helen. The cabin is cozy -- we especially enjoyed the fireplace & firepit! We had a surpricingly delicious meal at "Survivor's" when everythingelse was closed. The hot tub was great.



Thanks for a great trip!

Great Cabin, Great Renting Experience!!

  • 5 of 5
I had a special weekend planned for earlier this year for myself and my girlfriend. A bunch of unexpected snow storms blew in and I was unsure we would be able to get to Helen much less up the hill to the cabin. The owner was very understanding and worked with us to find a better weekend. Other than weather pushing our trip back a little our trip was great. The cabin is very nice, well decorated, and clean. Hot tub is big and very clean as well. And the views were amazing. Will definitely be renting form here again.

Just Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
We visited this cabin with close friends and family and stayed there for 3 days. The best part about this cabin is that its the last one on this road, and you get great view, a little bit of isolation (those who like it, I do) but would still not feel unsafe as its still very close to the town. We would definitely like to visit this place again. Well maintained and the owner is super cool so just in case you need something or would like to get something fixed or report anything, it gets taken care with a very positive attitude. Awesome place for kids and family.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Owners were very nice and accommodating to our needs. Perfect mini vacation with friends. Home was very nice! My only complaint is that it is a good ways to walk to town! There is a huge hill! We used a Alpine taxi which Doug was great!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and note about the hill. The cabin is 330 ft above the city, and this is gained through 1/2 mile distance from the main road. The distance to the city is about one mile, easy walk down, and cheap cab ride up unless you want to excercise the Helen dinner away with the uphill walk.

Good location in Helen

  • 3 of 5
Guys fishing trip stayed at the Pit Stop. Cabin was good. Electric stove we had to get use to the temperature controls. Master bedroom is on the top level with 2 bedrooms in the basement. Only one thermostat for all 3 levels so difficult to balance temperature. Location is very good. Pizza restaurant near the cabin is great (no delivery). Overall good stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The cabin has three bedrooms and I will look into what could be done to improve the thermostat arrangement. Three stories may need a second AC unit to have completely even temperatures for all rooms. There are extra heaters in closet downstairs if needed in the downstairs bedrooms or game room for coldest nights.

Octoberfest work outing

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here with my boss, his wife and another couple for the last weekend of Octoberfest and it was just perfect. The view is amazing and the home is stocked with pretty much everything you would need. It is a little far to walk to town but it was still close enough. We would definitely rent this home again.
Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I would like to have you again as a guest as well. Cabin is secluded, but still close. Cab rides are alternative and easy to get in Helen if the walk feels long.

Perfect Cabin For Us!!!

  • 5 of 5
First off the owners were very helpful throughout the whole process answering any questions/ concerns we had. The cabin was amazing with a perfect location (0.5 miles to town). The hot tub and grill were perfect at night when the temps began to drop. Very convenient to the fest hall (Oktoberfest was a great experience) and other attractions like putt-putt. I highly recommend this cabin and look forward to renting it again next October!!
