Awesome place to stay while riding through Georgia! Ms. Jane took us in and made us feel welcome! The rooms, breakfast and beds were fantastic! Breakfast in the morning made by Chef Jarome was off the charts... We (my brothers and I) were traveling up to see a friend play in Homerville and couldn't have stumbled on a better place... More

If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place. Despite having to be there for work it is still worth it. Even though a little town still has great places to eat after having breakfast at The Helmstead.

What a wonderful time I had staying with Ms Jane. She is the epitome of southern hospitality. It felt like I was staying with family. There is a special comfort pillow on each bed that was the cause of me oversleeping one morning. I stayed in the Queen room with its big comfy chairs and private bath. Mr Jerome helps... More

Down in the little south Georgia town of Homerville, there is a lovely house and a delightful Southern woman who put the "home" in "Homerville." The Helmstead Bed and Breakfast is known far and wide for its beauty, comfort and graciousness---all at affordable prices! Once the home of the chatelaine herself, Jane Helms, this establishment offers a welcoming shelter for... More

The Helmstead is a great Bed and Breakfast. The owner, Miss Jane, makes you feel like family from the minute you arrive. The historic brick house itself is amazing and beautifully furnished, and each room has its own character. Wifi and cable TV are available in each room. Breakfast was delicious and the staff is friendly. The town of Homerville... More

After speaking with 'Miss Jane', the owner of The Helmstead B&B, prior to our trip, we knew we had to stay there. Her southern charm was simply too much for us not to stay there. Our rooms were lovely, breakfast was wonderful and 'Miss Jane' regaled us with local history, both hers and the area's.

My husband stayed at the Helmstead the end of August, 2012 to attend a funeral service for his high school friend. He was so impressed by the rooms, service, hospitality that he received while staying there, he told me he might take me up there just to stay there and have that experience. Ms. Jane was such a fine "lady",... More

Used Homerville as a mid point stop over on our road trip from Fairhope, Alabama to Savannah, GA. Our stay at the Helmstead was enchanting. This two story colonial home is filled with antiques, memorabilia and warm hospitality provided graciously and colorfully to you by Ms. Jane. We stayed in the "Princess" room which was well appointed, clean, and had... More

We planned to stop by in July to say hello to family members on our way to Savannah. Although I knew my family would welcome us into there homes, I wasn't sure of our plans, and... More

Ms Jane was out of town celebrating her birthday day...but her staff did not miss a beat. They were amazing!!! Everyone in our party had the best night's sleep and the most delicious breakfast by Ms Mary. Jerome was the best host, ensuring we all were well taken care of...as the saying goes "The true test of a man's character... More
