This is a great location for a quiet getaway with nature or a quiet place to stay in proximity to active Helen, Georgia. It's a secluded, woodsy area with great hiking trails. The food at the restaurant is great, especially the breakfast buffet. The rooms are small, bathrooms are very small, and much of the carpet and fixtures throughout the... More

We were looking for a quick get-away in the No. Georgia mountains and chose Unicoi Lodge as it was near a craft fair. We stayed in one of the lodge buildings (versus cabin or campsite) - the room was generous size with sink in bathroom and another outside bathroom. Plenty of counter space and room to make coffee. Desk, chair... More

For the guest ratings and the price, you would expect a very nice hotel. It's the opposite of that. The hotel lodge rooms are dated, musty smelly and remind you of a roadside motel of the 1960's. Ice machine did not work. Water was off when we came back to room, took hours to repair and front staff seemed unconcerned... More

We went to visit our son during his intersession break from summer camp. The cabins looked nice on the website so we gave it a try. Awful! The cabin was dark and musty. The chair in the living room had a major stain on it. The linoleum floor in the kitchen was cracked and missing pieces with sharp edges. The... More

We reserved a tent walk in camp site on the 4th of July. As we were setting up the tent, two deer walked through eating about 15 feet from us. That was great. Pros: The site had plenty of shade, was set up nice with a fire pit ,plenty of space,not right on top of the next camper. Cons: had... More

The lodge, which is located inside Unicoi State Park, looks to be from the late 70's or 80's. It is a solid structure -- made with plenty of metal and cinderblock (like a school or military building). There are no elevators, only stairs (on the inside of the building), so if you have mobility issues, be sure to request a... More

rooms were nice, great walking trails, close to Helen. The restaurant offered only a buffett, the food was not hot and sitting for a while. It would have been nice to order from a menu and get freshly cooked food. Great scenery and location. Would go there again.

Lots to do in the area. Enjoyed an excursion to Dahlonega, and inside the park, plenty of forest and water to enjoy. At night, we had a good dinner in the lodge. We also enjoyed sitting around the bonfire outside lodge and toasting marshmallows. All in all, an enjoyable park stay.

Been coming to Unicoi for about 12 years now. Great place to stay and there is a little of everything around for someone to do. Not hard to find what you wanna eat great family place. The fishing is a mustso is the hiking. Close to many towns so you can always have a different adventure everyday
