My husband and I decided last minute to go to Helen for our 18th wedding anniversary. We have visited Helen many times but never stayed over for the night. We researched several places to stay and narrowed it down to 2. After phoning both places I was very pleased with Mark's personal touch at Riverbend. I phoned Mark on our... More

My husband and I visited Helen and decided to rent a chalet at Riverbend. We loved the chalet, the riverside location and being within walking distance of town. The chalet was clean and comfy with plenty of room and a nice view on the river. We wish we could have stayed longer but we plan to stay there again and... More

We recently decided to take a spur of the moment get away to the Georgia mountains. Many people had told us about the beauty of Helen Georgia, so we decided to give it a shot. After doing a quick (but thorough) search online we found the Riverbend Motel's website. It looked like the perfect location and a great price for... More

This motel is in a perfect location, just down a little side street from Main Street. Easy walking all over town. This is definitely an older property, but the rooms were renovated and look nice. Front desk personnel was very nice! I think he may be the owner. He made some great recommendations for food and things to do. Beds... More

We loved the location! Back off the main street and felt like we were in our own little world...Mark told us several places to try for dinner and they were awesome. We stayed in a cabin and everything was set up very nice and clean. Will definitely make this location one we will go back too often! Thanks Mark....bonnie

This is a charming little motel on the water. My husband and four year old loved waking up in the morning to go skip rocks and sit on the swings facing the water. The motel itself needs a lot of work and if you are use to a fancier type of place this would not be for you. The rooms... More

While the riverbend is not the newest motel the owner makes up for that with outstanding personel service and friendliness. The motel is being updated in the next few months. Even though the motel was older the location is wonderful within walking distance of all Helen. The room we stayed in was a very good size and very clean. We... More

The atmosphere was very relaxing with a fantastic view of the river. The king size room was pretty as pictured. The wood floor added more charm than having a carpet. Chairs were provided by our door to sit out in the balcony. This allowed my husband and I to enjoy the sound of nature and the river during evening hours.... More
