“Location and size was perfectly suited to our needs!”
Reviewed 30 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We were discussing our accommodations and location with other family members last night. Its perfect for us and our other family. Our grandchildren (10 & 12) got a little board around the cottage, but they have to be "entertained" so not surprising. We all enjoyed spending time together around the fireplace and in the village itself. Anna Ruby Falls was gorgeous. Of course, we had to visit the Cabbage Patch Kids Hospital. Not enough time to see/do all we wanted to. Good excuse to come back!

“Great Private Residence, Close to Downtown Helen”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

The Bavarian Pit Stop is a nice 3 level cabin located at the top/end of a road connected to Main Street Helen. While at the cabin we mostly utilized the master suite Jacuzzi tub, a back deck Jacuzzi for four, and outdoor grill. This cabin is well furnished on each level. 2 and 1/2 bathrooms (one per floor) met the needs of our 8 person group for the weekend.
The entire top level is the master suite, and while it was not a deal breaker, there is no door between the staircase entrance from the living room to the master bedroom.
We would absolutely come back again.

Thank you for your stay. Yes, AC needed some attention because it was turned too low by previous guests and froze. We got it back running the first night of new guests stay without further issues. Thank you for letting me know!

Thank you for renting my cabin and taking the time to write a review for it.
The location of the cabin is on top of the hill, very close to Helen, and sometimes the water pressure is lower upstairs, showers and all appliances have still been usable. I had the pressure checked by the city and a private plumber, but at the time of checking, it was within their range. We have curtains in downstairs bedrooms and upstairs master bedroom has some as seen in the photos. There are none in the middle floor living area.
I am sorry if you didn;t find the ATV offerings in the area usable. There are several locations which offer that service. Unfortunately my cabin does not offer a direct ATV trail, and I haven't advertised so.
There might have been a misunderstanding since my description says "Bring your toys to enjoy mountain roads". There are countless mountain roads in the area to have scenic drives with road legal cars or motorcycles. One can spend weeks driving curvy and enjoyable routes looping back to Helen nightly and still have routes to explore.

“Beautiful cabin, great place to stay”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

the cabin is beautiful and very spacious. We found very clean.
Any area has nice views, large Jacuzzi with lights that change, so great!
My children were so happy that they preferred to enjoy the cabin instead of going out to the town
We really enjoyed the pool table and games.
If I have to write a complaint, I would say that the main room has no curtains, which is beautiful at night because you can sleep watching the stars, but in the morning the sun wakes you up very early.

Thank you for yours stay, the cabin is pretty close to what you described. We will add curtains to main bedroom, it has been without them for number of years, and being on top of the mountain by itself, the privacy is there without curtains.

“Great cabin for family get away!”
Reviewed 22 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We took our two adult children,their spouses and two young grandchildren on a week end get away. Bavarian Pitstop was perfect for us. Even though we had several people the lay out of the cabin allows everyone to have space. Young children were able to sleep on bottom floor while adults stayed up. GREAT hot tub with a lovely, peaceful view. Very short drive into Helen and main attractions.

Enough space for eight people to spread out and not trip on each other for a full week. Cannot top the views from the decks or large hot tub for the cold nights with a full fireplace for the added touch. Fully stocked and ready for enjoyment!
