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. Unicoi State Park and Lodge contains trout streams, mountain-biking trails, and a freshwater lake. 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.

Staff was A+. The food was not good at all. Thanksgiving Buffet was horrible and the tavern food at the lodge was not good. Drinks were great. Bathroom in room in the D building did not close, it was a rolling door and stayed open. Very loud doors and could hear thru the walls. Only a 10 min drive to Helen. The archery was a great experience with a great teacher. Won't go back again or recommend.

They had canceled my reservation as I was heading to the lodge for a no show though I gave them a prior notice regarding my delayed trip. I had a issue with the car rental company that didn’t allow me to get car on the pick up date. I wasted my time talking to one of the agents whom I had explained about the trip delayed and agreed to give me the chance to show up for the next day.

The lodge is a great place to stay. Loved the adventure opportunities specially the zipline. The only two things that I have to say about the lodge that didn't go as planned: 1. I called a week before check-in to ask for a king bed and at check-in they said they missed the note made by the staff about it. 2. Our AC didn't work the 1st night but after talking to the front desk was promptly fixed.
