The Alpine Crest Resort is nestled in the beautiful mountains of Helen, Georgia. Reading some of the reviews here made me a little nervous at first, but I’m relieved to say that the resort turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Like most of the other hotels and shops in Helen, the Alpine Crest is designed in the Bavarian/South German style. It sort of reminded me of a Gingerbread House. Our unit was on the top floor, and included our own covered parking space beneath. The inside had a warm log-cabin feel to it. Although our unit was described as a one-bedroom, it had a loft upstairs with an extra bed and bathroom with garden tub. We also had a full kitchen, fireplace, and a good-sized balcony facing a quiet wooded area. One of the best things about the Alpine Crest Resort is its location. We visited during Helen’s popular Oktoberfest celebration, and while we were within walking distance to the downtown action, we were just far enough off the main drag to not be bothered by the festivities once back in our room. As for the room, it’s true that the Alpine Crest has probably seen better days. The carpet was a little worn and some of the faucets dripped, but these are minor things that can sometimes be typical of older properties. We never got the feeling that we were “roughing it” and certainly there was nothing about the resort that spoiled our stay. In fact, we plan on returning for a weekend in the spring. The Alpine Crest Resorts is a perfect choice for anyone who can relax in a cozy atmosphere, overlook a few flaws, and just wants to enjoy the lovely scenery of the mountains in the cute town of Helen.
