About Renee Simchon

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

Why Renee Simchon chose North Georgia Mountains

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

What makes this chalet unique

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!

Great place to stay in Helen. Would use again!

  • 5 of 5

the condo was very well appointed and extremely clean. The best part is the convenience to all of downtown Helen within walking distance. We did not use our cars again until we left for home. We will definitely look at this place for a spring visit to enjoy tubing down the river.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this property and it was comfortable and clean. It states it can sleep 10 people, but don't believe it. I mean it can if the last two people sleep uncomfortably on recliners. To me recliners don't qualify as sleeping 2. The condo is nicely decorated, however we felt it has too much decor. There could be less decor and more room for the guests and their belongings. The one master suite could use a bedside table for reading. I'm not trying to dog the property. I just wanted to give honest feedback to the owners. As I said, it is a great property and we would definitely return. The location is amazing. Easy walk into town to enjoy Helen.

This is a beautiful condo located right on the river. Everything we needed was within walking distance. The condo was clean and cozy. I will definitely be back to both this condo and Helen.
