At the same time, this cabin offers private and secluded at the end of the road location with plenty of parking space, bring your favorite toy on a trailer to enjoy mountain roads or clear lakes in the area if you like.

Second level has great traditional cabin feel with exposed beams in the ceiling, tongue and groove walls in dining area and wooden and stone tile floors along with big stone fireplace. These combined with rustic dining set, comfortable sofas, 42' Led HDTV and lots of windows letting the light in make this level great for get togethers or watching the game or movies from vast 50 DVD:s collection.

The deck outside has very nice and private Leisure Bay hot tub, big 7'-9'' square which seats 8, has lots of jets and changing colors for those dark nights. Deck wraps the house and is 12' wide, has nice dining set and a big Char-Grill Duo grill with one side propane gas and one side charcoal along with sideburner. There is also good set of utensils to cook great steak from local grocery store.

Terrace level has spacious game room with carpeted floors and special steel ceilings along two private bedrooms which have closets and queen size beds. The game room has pool table, nice sofas, one recliner and the other turns into queen size bed, and of course 36' TV and DVD player.

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

The upper level is dedicated to master bedroom, roomy bathroom with jacuzzi bath and private balcony. The bedroom floor is covered with carpet and huge bathroom has tiles while walls are tongue in groove type wood panels. In the bathroom there is shower, jacuzzi bath, and washer and dryer available for use.

There is massive king size log bed, 34' TV, closet with hangers for clothes and a nightstand. You will find iron and small board from the closet. On balcony there are two log style rocking chairs to enjoy the view.

If you want to just kick back and relax all three levels of the cabin have Moviechannels like HBO,Starz etcincluded. In main level those can be watched in 1080p resolution from 42' Vizio flat screen HDTV. Keeps teenagers occupied too.

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!

We had a wonderful time in Helen. The cabin was beautiful, clean, spacious and equipped with everything needed and then some. The location of the cabin is perfect as well. We can definitely recommend the Bavarian Pit Stop.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Bavarian Pit Stop. I organized a small family gathering with my elderly parents, my adult siblings, and their teenage kids. The cabin was at the end of a road very close to town. We had no trouble navigating the lock box upon arrival. Everything was clean, organized, and very homey. The teenagers thoroughly enjoyed the basement with the pool table, and the hot tub. My brother and I made use of the "hot rod" grill and had a great time cooking burgers one night. I was very thrilled to be able to give my parents the suite on the top floor. I think the stairs were a bit much for them, but they loved the space with the balcony and large bathroom. The only issue we had was with the wifi. It was out for a couple of hours one day, but came back on and there were no problems after that.

My mother had never rented a cabin before, and was very concerned about toilet paper, etc., but I assured her everything would be there. She still managed to pack her car so full that they had to take two vehicles! It was nice to see how surprised she was at the amenities provided, and be able to relax and enjoy the weekend. Everyone wanted to stay longer! Thanks so much for having our family!

A Family Getaway That Will Always Be Remembered

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Helen. The cabin was close to town. It was much more than we had hoped for. The three levels allowed for everyone to have some space and engage in different activities at the same time. We spent a lot of time on the deck and ate several meals outside. At night we sat on the deck and listened to the activity in Helen. Everything was updated and clean. The bathroom on the top floor was a wonderful surprise since it is not shown in the pictures. Also, waking up in the bedroom on the top floor is like waking up in a tree house since there are lots of trees right outside the window. We truly enjoyed staying in this cabin and was sad to leave. Very hassle-free booking and check-in. Great Job!

My sisters & I had a blast. One of them saw a bear. She was in the car coming back from the grocery store, & I guess he scared her enough not to take a pic or call us in the house for us to take pics. So she beeped the horn & off he went. We would've love to see him, ( not face to face though. ) We climbed 2 mountains, went to a winery for a tasting, got our old time pic taken & spent lots of time in the beautiful little town of Helen. All the restaurants were very nice. The very last night we got in the hot tub, it was great for our feet & back after all the walking.

My gps gave the perfect directions to the cabin. It was 10:30 at night when we arrived so it was dark, thankfully there's a censor light. I would definitely recommend (& have already) this wonderful cabin to anyone.

Thank you Mr Heikki Rinta_Koski for all your help & kindness. We'll be back I'm sure.
