Our family enjoyed the Lodge and Fisherman's cabin for 4 wonderful days. These cabins are very nice with wonderful privacy. Our favorite was the spectacular view of the river which is only a few steps away. we had such a blast tubing and Cindy was very nice and always helpful. Very secluded but only minute's from all the town has... More

We had a wonderful stay in The Lodge and The Fisherman's Cabin over the 4th of July weekend. The park on the river is hands down the perfect setting for a group. We had a wonderful time grilling, tubing (very easy access), and drinking beer down by the river. The boys especially loved Cindy's driving range set up. It was... More

This is not the first time we have stayed at Bear Creek, but the first time in the RiverView cabin. As always we had an excellent time. Cindy always goes out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The accommodations were to our liking and very quiet and private. We try to visit every year but... More

My wife and I stayed here in October. We wanted to do some hiking and go to the Oktoberfest in Helen. Our cabin was clean and tastefully decorated. Cindy was a great host and gave us some great food and hiking recommendations. The cabin was close enough to walk to Helen. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here.

Where do you start? You are surrounded by beautiful woods not to mention beautiful people. The cabins themselves have anything and everything that a person could need. not to mention are within walking distance to town. We were so glad to be there during October Fest. Having been in Germany it didn't fall far from the mark.

It's been about a month since we returned from our mini-family vacation/reunion at the Bear Creek Lodge. We were truly impressed at the tranquility and detail that went into appointing the property and our cabin. We slept very well and peacefully. The enjoyment of a campfire alongside the river was a great treat. To say "It was a very pleasant... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the Bear Creek Lodge.....clean and comfortable....We stayed in the Fisherman's Cabin and loved the location, which can't be beat, just outside of town but within walking distance of everything. We were right next to the Chattahoochee River. Thanks Cindy and Tim...great hosts....a great place to stay while in Helen, Georgia.
