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

Property was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed sitting by the river watching the tubers float by and my Grandsons could enjoy the river right off the deck. The property was very nice. Everything we needed was available. Very comfortable for all adults and kids.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location to stay in Helen. You can walk to all of the shops and restaurants and also get off of the river right in the back yard. Roomy, well appointed and clean.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location for tubing. You are a short walk to either of the tubing companies. Also a short walk to dining, putt-putt and all of downtown Helen. Plenty of room for the six of us and RIGHT on the river!

Not really

  • 4 of 5

The location was as advertised. Clean and furnished nicely. However..this is represented as a 3 BDRM..the Bunk beds were very uncomfortable and there was no closet there. The first floor living area was too cold and we all wore heavy clothing..upstairs was toasty warm. Since the registers were in the floor there. While downstairs tile could not be comfortable with registers in the ceiling. Where were the sheets.pillows and blankets for the sleep sofas?.plenty of pillows but no cases. Thankfully. the "Manager" brought more blankets. Again. the location was private and close to restaurants.etc.Helen is delightful..we were familiar with the area. We owned a home north of Blairsville for years

Forgive the typos. Please..
