About Tina Maynard
We live in Statham, GA and own a learning center, Kidz Academy, located in Winder, GA. We take a very hands-on approach to managing our business, therefore we work very long days. When we are fortunate enough to take time off for pleasure we enjoy visiting our lodge, the Chattahoochee Lodge. We also enjoy camping. So when our lodge is rented we are camping and exploring the area in our Jeep Wrangler with the top down. We have two boys and they also have Jeep Wranglers and enjoy camping with us. We have been visiting Helen and enjoying Oktoberfest since 1977. Our entire family would all meet in Helen for Oktoberfest...great times were had and great memories were made! Everyone should experience Oktoberfest in Helen! Tina & Billy Maynard the lodge in 2018.
Tina Maynard purchased this Lodge in 2018
Why Tina Maynard chose Helen
The Chattahoochee Lodge construction was completed in May 2010. It is located across the river from Helen's Festhalle and only 2 blocks from downtown Helen. The lodge has an open concept with a kitchen, dining, & family. The kitchen features new stainless steel appliances & 2 bars that seat up to 10 people. You can dine while viewing the Chattahoochee River. The family room features a 30 foot wall of glass overlooking the river and a 26 foot rock fireplace. The walls are covered in Ship-lap siding and the ceiling is tongue & groove pine with beautifully stained trusses. Each of the 4 bedrooms has queen beds, a bathroom, a fireplace and a Smart TV. The loft bedroom has a queen size Murphy bed. The loft has a pool table and ping pong table. The outdoor living space has a flag stone patio with a fire pit and a huge deck that overlooks the river. The lodge is perfect for a family retreat, summer vacation, Oktoberfest celebration, reunions, weddings, or just a weekend getaway!
What makes this Lodge unique
The most unique benefit of the Chattahoochee Lodge is the location. The cabin is located across the Chattahoochee River from the Festhalle & within a short walk (2 blocks) to downtown Helen. You have incredible rivers views the family room, the hot tub, the huge deck and the outdoor patio and fire pit. The river bank offers a unique beach that allows easy access to the river to wade or swim. The cabin is located in an area of the river that offers the best trout fishing in White County. Everyone that stays at our lodge LOVES that you can walk to downtown Helen...within a couple of minutes you can enjoy all of the activities in downtown Helen including Oktoberfest, shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, candy shops and much more!

Annual ride to Helen GA
The house is excellent. The view of the river is incredible. Enjoyed sitting by the river and cheering tubers going down the river. The only downfall is the spiral staircase. It can be difficult to use when carrying luggage.
Glam party success!!!
We hosted our high school dance team retreat "Glam Party" at the Chattahoochee Lodge. It was perfect in every way. Beautiful house, perfect location, easy check in, great communication with owners . . .just perfect!!! Will definitely be going back for a family getaway.
Chattahoochee Lodge is amazing
If you are planning a trip to Helen with a large group or family, then look no further than the Chattahoochee Lodge. The location is as good as it gets and the property is simply amazing. The property owners roll out the red carpet for their guests and are always available to answer questions during your stay. This is truly a 5 star property and when we come back, we hope the lodge will be available. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars.
One of a Kind
We have rented from VRBO about 10 yrs. and nothing has compared with this home. We're a family of 10 ages 13-76 so finding something that works for everyone is not easy. After watching the building and landscaping of this property I knew it was for us and we were not disappointed. The location is great, It is located on the river, within walking distance of restaurants and shopping.
All the rooms are large as well as the bathrooms and beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed to prepare and serve meals.
The Maynards were in touch to make sure that all was well. They have thought of all the nice things that we might need. (the basket of throws to cover up while we watched TV)
We enjoyed the tubers so much. They would wave and yell
"beautiful house" We even had one person get off the tube and walk up the bank to enquire about the house.
Sitting here looking at our pictures and thinking about how nice it was to sit under the trees and just relax I know I could live there and be very happy. My granddaughter came by yesterday and said "I wish we could have stayed another week"
All 10 of us wish that. If you are considering going to Helen
THIS IS THE PLACE.
Excellent as always!
Owner was great with communication and the house is even more beautiful during the summer. Can't wait to stay again!
Wonderful place to stay! Right in town yet very private. Would recommend to anyone. Great owners!
