I recently stayed in one of the studio cabins at Timberloft Cottages and Cabins outside of Helen, GA with a friend. We stopped at another group of cabins on the way to our cabin by accident, thinking it was where we were staying. When we saw our studio cabin we wished we had picked one of the surrounding places to stay instead of Timberloft Cottages and Cabins.
The cabin had absolutely no privacy and was extremely close to the main office (which I believe has now moved into the main drag in Helen). There was little space between cabins, and the hot tub and front door were in plain view of everyone walking by. So even though the hot tub was nice, my friend and I were boxed in by the privacy curtain shielding us from other people.
The women we talked to while making our reservation were rude and difficult to deal with. They seemed to not want us to stay with them on our vacation, and the more we talked to them on the phone, the more they kept adding fees they seemed to forget about when we talked to them initially. I do not know if the people working at Timberloft Cottages and Cabins are this rude to everyone, or if perhaps they had some prejudice against women in their twenties (who they may perceive as not having as much money to waste on renting from them).
Overall, staying with Timberloft Cottages and Cabins was a mistake, and I advise anyone reading this review to stay somewhere else. Trust me, you do not want to deal with these rude peole or stay in their overpriced cabins.
