Helen's Best In-Town Vacation Chalet - Located On The Chattahooche River
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 cabin, the Chattahoochee Chalet. We also enjoy camping. So when our cabin 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 Maynard purchased this Chalet in 2016
Why Tina Maynard chose Helen
When we first saw the Chattahoochee Chalet for the first time we fell in love with it! There are so many features of this chalet that standout. The view and sounds of the Chattahoochee River are the best in Helen! The proxmity to downtown Helen is a short walk to enjoy everything Helen has to ovver. Plus, the outside living space is fantastic...large deck, screened-in deck, & large patio all with great views of the river. Our dream of owning our second property in Helen came true in March 2016. The Chattahoochee Chalet is our place to go to relax and to continue to make amazing memories with our family and friends. If you every stay at the Chattahoochee Chalet you will never stay at another cabin in Helen!
What makes this Chalet unique
The most unique benefit of the Chattahoochee Chalet is the location. The chalet is located on the Chattahoochee River within a short walk to downtown Helen. You have incredible rivers views from all of the bedrooms, the family room, the hot tub, the huge deck and the outdoor patio.. The river bank offers a unique flat grassey area 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 cabin LOVES that you can walk to downtown Helen...within 10 minutes you can enjoy all of the activities in downtown Helen including Oktoberfest, shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, candy shops and much more!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Future guests should be made aware that the 1st floor bedroom is not fit for adults due to the small and not very comfortable double bed, kids only do fine. The internet wasn't sufficient, we couldn't get Netflix to do more than a few mins of any show the entire time we were there and usage on i-devices spotty. In the kitchen there is no place for food. Otherwise we very much enjoyed the abundant outdoor seating and multiple screened patios on several floors, it's in a good location (but not isolated as the picture suggests), the stream is pretty and geese visited, little ones enjoyed feeding them.
Great riverside location, great house
The home was wonderful, especially since every bedroom had Its own private bathroom. The home was clean and within easy walking distance to the center of downtown Helen.
The only surprise was the amount of traffic on the road. Generally the traffic noise wasn’t bothersome, but there were a couple of occasions when it was disturbing (loud motorcycles).
We would highly recommend the property and will likely rent it again.
Amazing!!! Entire family loved everything about it
This home is perfect for our family getaway !
Great family trip!
We had a total of 10 people between our 3 families and there was plenty of room for all of us! We loved the location, walking distance to all the shops and restaurants, and the tubing place was right next door. The house itself was very nice and clean. We had a small issue with the AC but the hosts were very quick in their response and had it fixed ASAP. We were quite impressed with the friendliness and immediate response of our hosts as well as the house itself. Would definitely recommend this beautiful home if you’re planning to stay in the Helen area!
Fantastic Family Vacation
We booked the Chattahoochee Chalet to experience a change of scenery from our usual beach vacation. This place did not disappoint! We had 4 adults and 3 kids ages 8, 8 & 6. The kids loved splashing in the river which was LITERALLY in the backyard. This property is situated perfectly along the river, with the most green space of the entire community and easy river access. The river was deep enough for the kids to safely play and shallow enough for the adults to sit and relax in the river rock area. Our crew was so ecstatic about the location! The porches offer amazing views of the river. We enjoyed sitting on each level during a few rain showers that popped up- very relaxing. Each room has a full bathroom which is HUGE when vacationing with multiple families. The place is tastefully decorated and included all the amenities necessary to make you feel at home.
The house is close to everything Helen has to offer. We walked to Cool River Tubing (buy/bring a push stick!!), The Alpine Coaster (So fun, yet pricey), and Pirate Cove Mini Golf. There is a BBQ joint one block up that has killer BBQ, too.
Overall, we were extremely satisfied with our stay. The owner reached out to us after check-in to ensure accommodations were adequate and make sure we were happy. I enjoyed the personal touch it added!
Thanks for sharing your Chalet with our families, we hope to return next year!
