We stayed there over Thanksgiving of 2016 and I wrote a review then but apparently it was removed. The cabin was in poor repair and the stairs down to the cabin needed to be replaced then. My wife is handicapped and needed help going up and down them as the handrail was worn and wobbly - even the dogs were nervous going up and down them. The stove was unreliable and the fan above it had no fin so it was useless. The bed on the main floor was so hard my wife couldn't sleep for the whole week we were there and the couch wasn't any better and her being disabled - she couldn't manage the stairs to get to the bed upstairs. We were very disappointed by our stay. The internet didn't work either - we had to walk down to the main house to get a signal which is difficult when you are expected to answer to emails from work in WPB, Florida. Should have gotten a refund due to the many issues with the cabin.
We have been to many cabin rental properties over time but Helton Falls Lodge is a true winner. The Inn keeper Stephen was accommodating, friendly and available at all times to answer any questions or address needs. We stayed in Sophie's Attic named after a cute little dog of past. Fitting as we asked for a pet friendly cabin so as to travel with our two little dogs rather then board them. We initially reserved a one bedroom but Stephen, after knowing one of our relatives might need a one night stay with us went ahead and upgraded us @ no charge to Sophie's because it had a loft with two twins just in case. No air mattress for them! A nice touch of good ole southern hospitality. There were staff working to better the property the whole time we were there and they were very friendly as well. Overall a great experience and will definitely visit again.
