What makes this condo unique

CONVENIENCE! Since my property is located in downtown you can park your car and WALK. You don't have to worry about traffic or parking. Also walk to Betty's Country Store to pick up the things you need whether it be a band-aid, snacks, drinks, lunch or something great from the fresh meat counter to grill for supper.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We needed a nice relaxing weekend getaway with friends and this condo did not disappoint. Very clean, cozy and close to everything in town. Once you park the car you really don't need it to explore the wonderful downtown area of Helen, Ga. Being so close to a country store was helpful as well since we decided to cook most of our meals ourselves. The flat screens in every room, hot tub and movies are a nice touch and were used many times. Also great bonus having Wifi, can't go anywhere without connectivity nowadays! Thank you very much and we will return in the future!"

Best ever stay in Helen!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 night stay in Helen at this condo. It was absolutely perfect. The location is so close to everything that we could walk. We never even got in our car. The condo was spotless. The decor was so nice, we all just loved it. Kela was just as fantastic, she was so easy to deal with and made our stay perfect. We would highly recommend staying here and would definately return.

Great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was awesome. Walking distance to the restaurants and shopping! We had a group of 8 adults that had varied interests...hiking, mountain biking, tubing, shopping, winery tours, and of course dining out. I loved the fact that it was a short drive to the wineries in Dahlonega.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our loved this vacation. The condo was prefect for our group. The large sofa made family game time so easy. The kids loved the hot tub and we had a hard time getting them out. The close location to town made things so nice. You can also walk a very short distance and play for hours in the river. Beds were so comfortable! The kitchen had everything you could want. The location grocery store with great wine selection and deli sandwiches was GREAT and only steps away!
