Bavarian-Style Hotel on Chattahoochee River

Helendorf River Inn Suites & Conference Center is situated on the banks of the Chattahoochee River in northeast Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. It has alpine architecture, including gingerbread trim and a turret, giving it the feel of a stately Bavarian hotel. The inn is located in the heart of the town of Helen, which features a pedestrian-friendly mile-long stretch of artisan shops, restaurants, and brauhauses celebrating all things German.

Inside, you’ll find recently renovated riverfront balcony rooms overlooking the Chattahoochee. You can also enjoy the calm waters of the heated enclosed pool—one of the reasons the hotel earned a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. 

Helen, Georgia: Replica Bavarian Village Surrounded by the Appalachians

In 1968, the townspeople of Helen, Georgia—a struggling sawmill town in the Blue Ridge Mountains—hatched a dramatic plan to reinvigorate the economy and boost tourism. Led by local business owners and artists, Helen adopted a German identity, complete with cobblestone alleys, timber-frame cottages, and Old-World towers. Ever since, the town has thrived as a Bavarian-style village, now welcoming nearly two million visitors a year. Several festivals take place in the town every year, most notably a hot-air balloon race, a German-style Mardi Gras, and an eight-week-long Oktoberfest.

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Helen is also home to some incredible countryside scenery. The Appalachian National Scenic Trail passes nearby, and the Anna Ruby Falls drop off in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest. The area’s natural setting lends itself to scenic outdoor activities, including tubing down the Chattahoochee River.
