A great spot for lunch or ice cream with sprinkles. Children can watch the goats from ground or roof level and can dig through dirt for quartz. Souvenirs are reasonably priced. Staff enjoys family visitors.

This place is no longer open in Helen. The only one open now is located in Tiger, GA. When it was open, we loved to take the kids here, all kinds of great goodies!

My husband visited Goats on the roof in Helen about 2 years ago and loved it. I could not wait to take my son to see it on our trip there today. Sadly it has closed. I am very disappointed because I just thought it was awesome.

This was a funny little roadside stop that reminds me of old school roadside America. My husband and I agreed that the fudge in the shop was the beast fudge we have ever eaten, hands down! They have tons of flavors made fresh everyday. We had the pistachio and a new one that is a combo of vanilla/peanut butter and... More

I'm not sure what I expected but I was disappointed. Yes, the goats are on the roof, but the novelty of that wears off in about 2 minutes once you realize that you can't really see them and they don't do anything. The gift/merchandise store is not worth your time as the inventory is poor and very limited (to goats... More

We have a lake house about an hour from Goats on the Roof . Our Daughters LOVES going there and always wants to take her friends when they visit the lake. Feed the goats and watch them traverse the roof but skip the "mining for gems". It's a waste of money.

There is one in Tiger, GA that we visited, but the one in Helen, GA has closed. Nice place to stop and let the children feed the goats. They also have great fudge and very reasonably prices souviners

We were surprised to see this out of the way oddity when driving to the moutains this past March. Stopped on our way home. Cutest thing you've ever seen. Kids would love it, but my teenage son had a blast feeding the goats. Not much there except that. Small gift shop, little restaurant, ice cream. Prices not bad either for... More

This was so much fun and very cute!! We are older ladies and had a blast feeding these goats on the roof! You buy a cone filled with food, 50cents, then either pedal a bike to take the little cup that you dump food in!! Kids around love it and so did we.
