We went for our daughter's birthday to the Big Bear Lodge and took our whole family and kids. It was a very memorable and fun weekend! The rustic mountain cabin experience is definitely worth it and you are within walking distance of downtown but still far enough away to be out of the crowds. Even though the water is low... More

Oh and inside a smell of old musk or mildew and that was... More

Each day after the guests checked in, I asked them how everything was, and they said fine- no mention of any of the allegations above.If they had expressed any of their concerns while staying there I would certainly have offered them other accommodations, or let them check out and given them a refund. I wonder why they chose to stay... More

We had 9 adults and 8 children that stayed in the lodge and 2 of the other cabins for Labor Day weekend. The lodge was absolutely disgusting. For starters the upstairs bathroom had someone's genital hair all over it. I had to clean the toilet before I could even use it. The shower and sink looked like it hadn't been... More

As I replied to the mother of this reviewer in the previous post, NONE of these allegations of uncleanliness were brought to my attention during their 4 day stay.. After attempts to extort money from us for a refund a day and a half after checking out, did these issues come to light. Why would they stay 4 days if... More

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our cabin had a rustic charm, and a perfect location! All of us LOVED being right on the river, and the close proximity to town was an added plus! Cindy was extremely helpful and especially accommodating of our family dog. We will definitely be back!

The cabins are very spacious and in a perfect location! It was beautiful and the hosts were wonderful and very accommodating. They were especially accommodating for our black lab who had an awesome time! Loved it and will definitely go back if ever in Helen again!

Cindy and Steve had a wonderfully private refurnished hot tub cabin available on the night before the 4th of July and for the 4th of July at a rate you would find at a rate better than you could find at a hectic chain hotel. A large outdoor porch overlooking the river. All modern conveniences and very comfortable. A+! Jeff... More

We had a big family vacation in helen ga and we all stayed at the ''lodge'', which has five bedrooms, a big living room and a nice sized deck outside. Cindy the owner was fantastic. She gave us great tips for restaurants and activities. The town is a short walk from the lodge. We left some walking sticks at the... More

Do your homework..we were not happy at all.Check the place out before you rent. I'm not sure if the same people own this property or not, so it could have been cleaned up in the last 6 months ( sure hope so)

We had an awesome time staying in the treehouse cabin for our honeymoon! The cabin is BEAUTIFUL with plenty of room and comfortable everything! It was very close to downtown and a stone throw away from the river. We caught plenty of trout and did lots of sightseeing and shopping. Cindy has the area down for anything you are wanting... More

I surprised my wife with a get away weekend in Helen and found our new favorite spot. Walking distance to all the night life and restaurants as well as river access onsite. Tim and Cindy are owner operators and are onsite to assist with any needs. Our cabin was exactly as it was described and very neat and clean. The... More
