Wonderful visit to The Helmstead. Miss Jane is the epitome of the Southern hostess. Rooms were clean, comfortable. Enjoyed a delicious breakfast thanks to Jerome. Unfortunately, did not have time to enjoy the lovely pool and spa. Hope to visit again.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and good sized. (We stayed in the Queens Room.) Each room has its own bath. The home is well back from a road that's not busy at night, so any room will likely be quiet. The home is well air-conditioned. Breakfast, cooked by Jerome, was wonderful. Miss Jane is a warm and welcoming proprietor.... More

My partner and I stayed with Jane and her staff this past weekend. We were in town for my son's wedding. We are so glad we did!!!! It was an absolute pleasure to meet Jane and stay in her beautiful home. She was a joy and treated us like family. We left with gifts of books, honey and Vidalia onions.... More

The pleasant, little town of Homerville isn’t on the most beaten of paths. But if heading that way, a great place to stay is the Helmstead B&B. Jane Helms is the lovely proprietress. She makes sure that the rooms are well appointed with lots of little features for a comfortable stay. The home is just a little out of town... More

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.
