We were up there for Helen to Atlantic Hot Air Balloon Race. I have stayed there several times and like the wines made in the Helen area, this place only gets better with time. This place is American owned and has been a family operation for 2 generations and was started by an ex military guy. This owners and staff will make you feel at home if you give them the chance. While some may call the place dated, renovations are in progress and the mountain and river views more than compensate for this. Location is on the main drag through Helen and offers free parking. Downtown is a 5 minute walk across the river and other attractions such as hiking, horseback riding, hot air ballooning and tubing are close by. The place is also animal friendly. Most room have mini fridge, microwave, coffee service, and wi fi with some having small kitchenets. WI-FI is free and they also have a banquet.meeting facility on premises aling with indoor heated pool. This is a resort area with year round events so it pays to make reservations early. Fall season duing Octoberfest is especially busy for leaf watchers and good time can be had on weekend in the Festhall. Only 90 minutes from metro Atlanta visting here is an easy weekend trip.
