Where to Stay in Helen?

Since this is my first trip, I need some advice. Here is what I would like to have: in town, within walking distance of everything, a balcony, preferably looking out over town, or the river, in the center of everything. We are only there for 2 nights, so we don't want to be too far out. Suggestions?

Don't know your dates, or how many people you have...but this is a nice cabin, in town, good rental company.

pinnaclecabinrental.com/…

another nice cabin I have stayed is:

http://www.vrbo.com/143878

This one is not walking distance to downtown Helen, but a very short drive. (<10 min)

Have fun,

Oh....the moondance cabin IS walking distance, but I just saw that part about being over the river. hmm...look through what Pinnacle has, you can put that in the search criteria. They are reliable and good rates.

VRBO...some owners good, some not so good.

Have fun, Miller

Have you looked at the Hampton Inn? They are literally a block from the downtown shopping district and have balcony rooms that overlook the Chattahoochee River. Also, I think they may have recently remodeled the place. Might be worth a call to check:

Not familar with Castle Inn, sorry. We usually camp or stay at one of the State Parks when we go up there.

If you can find something with Pinnacle Rentals... Very nice people, easy lock box check in.... and cleaning fee is less than all the others- we stayed in Chattahoochee Trail.. SUPER nice.. but not walking distance.. I would say 2 minute or less drive... Beware of rude service staff in many of the restaurants... Had super treatment by waiter at the Troll.. but that was it....

We ended up renting a cabin in town from A-1 Vacation Rentals called Above the Rest. It had a grill, hot tub, fireplace, two bedrooms, two baths, full kitchen, den and two balconies, but it was very close to everything. While I was in Helen, I noticed the Castle Inn looked nice, as well as River Bend. They were both close to downtown and River Bend had a beautiful view of the river.
