This location does not disappoint! Perfect spot for two, large rooms, directly on the water, and hot tub to finish off the day (couldn't have asked for more)!
Sounds like you had a fun trip -- thanks for sharing!
We had a great stay. The rental was still very close to town, but not directly in town so we were able to avoid all the traffic. The rental was also spotless. The property manager was awesome about providing us with all the info needed to access the rental when we got there, as well as checking in once we arrived.
Thanks for taking the time to review us! Come back when you can.
Great little place for a couple's getaway. Walking distance to Helen's attractions.
Thanks for staying with us!
The overall experience was fantastic. The fridge didn't work but they quickly offered to replace it. Everything was clean. The private hottub was amazing. We lived the view of the river from the hot tub. Would recommend and definately stay again.
We are glad you enjoyed the stay and sorry the frig bit the dust during it!
The condo was cute, comfortable, and well outfitted. The management company was fabulous to deal with before, during, and after our stay. There are a few things about this unit that would make it a bad choice for some. The stairs are steep down to the unit with a tiny landing at the top that is consumed by the door swinging inward. The parking lot is very tight and steep and crowded. Others took our assigned space multiple times. The porch is very crowded with a hot tub and no view due to a cement support wall. We have stayed with this management company before and will do so again. The place was clean, convenient to everything. The fireplace was an added plus and very cozy. We enjoyed our stay.
Thanks for letting us know about your stay and for your comments. Just for clarity, I think you mean that there is no view while in the hot tub. Most people want to have privacy while in the hot tub so that's the reason for the privacy fence. You can walk out around the hot tub to go out to the river though.
We enjoyed our time in the mountains. The property was very nice. It was very clean, comfortable and neatly laid out. Close enough to the center of activity, yet far away enough to be quiet and peaceful.
Thanks for your feedback!
This location is ideal for those desiring a central location near Helen activities. The rooms were spacious, the hot tub was FANTASTIC, and the bubbling creek was an enjoyable backdrop at the end of a busy day.
Thanks for your review!
We stayed there to celebrate our 40 th anniversary. It was very nice. I do have to mention though that I was not aware that there were stairs involved and most of the view of the water was hindered by a wall. I thought the location was closer to town. otherwise, a good time.
Thanks for choosing Georgia Mountain Rentals for your anniversary stay! Yes, there is the one flight of steps to this unit. I realize not everyone reads the full description but it does mention the "14 stairs leading down to the Alpine River Bend 1" and "about a one mile walk to the center of town." Next time you stay call us and we can answer questions about that kind of detail - we are here 7 days a week!
We LOVED this location! There was a large bedroom, bathroom, and living area that was perfect for two. We enjoyed the gas fireplace over the cold weekend and the hot tub was a PERFECT touch for a relaxing evening! We'll definitely visit again!
Thanks for letting us know! Come back and see us when you can.
Close to the main area of Helen but quiet enough to relax when need.
Overall experience was wonderful!!
We are so glad to know you had a relaxing stay. Come again!
This was a great vacation house. Everything was clean. It was just perfect.
Thanks for letting us know! Come back when you can.
With ample space for two, this could have been the perfect vacation rental.
It was clean and had nice amenities. We enjoyed the hot tub but were disturbed by the noisy occupants in the unit above us. We were also disappointed in the “No Trespassing” sign that kept us from walking along the River which originally drew our attention to this property. The wi-if was spotty and I suggest bringing your own pillows. The king size bed was comfortable except for the iron backboard combined with queen size flat pillows. Location was perfect! Not too far from downtown but far enough to avoid a lot of crowds.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The no trespassing at the condo is meant for those not staying there! We will certainly address the pillow situation with the owners. We hope to host your next stay in Helen!
I emailed and talk with Sherry I told her no stairs. I explained my partner is a disabled veteran . I was sure surprised when I opened the door and counted fourteen stairs. Yes it was a bottom level the basement level. No ice trays, never stayed at a place that didn't give at least one free packet of coffee. Will not recommend or stay here again.
I felt the property manager was intrusive. Multiple email, texts, and calls about arrival and departure times that was really none of their business due to a rather extensive rental agreement that I had already previously signed. I think there was an issue with hot tub maintenance that should NOT have impacted our stay. The hot tub was locked up and not accessible regardless. Upstairs apartment was excessively noisy. You could hear every footfall and each morning we were awakened before 7am by the upstair neighbors. Even an attempt at an afternoon nap was interrupted by an apparent hot tub maintenance in the upstairs apartment. Recommend noise abatement repairs to the unit. Recommend better instructions for TV usage, hot tub access and usage, and even some new materials on local happening would be helpful (The only material in the apartment was 20 years old. The kind ladies at the Helen Welcome Center were extremely helpful, though and provided lots of free material.) There was a general lack of attention to detail although the place was cozy, neat and clean. Tub and shower need to be updated and repaired.
I enjoyed the apartment.. although I was expecting a few more amenities as far as the kitchen area and lighting in the den. There needs to be a lamp in the den area by the TV or maybe put another stand for it. The TV in the bedroom is on the small side - should be bigger. Hot tub combination was not given. Property was not where I wanted to be but it was still a good location.
The unit was in need of paint to cover water stains .The shower needed to be up dated. Everything else was good.We only stayed two nights as we did not realize that a first floor was 16 steps down so we gave up the fee for the third nigh..We did not use the hot tube. The view was ok.
This is our second year renting Alpine River Bend 2, from Georgia Mountain Rentals. We are always pleased with everything. The apartment is perfect for a couples getaway! We will absolutely be returning again next year!
Needs a new shower head, and better instructions for the hot tub, how to unlock it, how to heat it up, etc. The A/C drip pan leaked, we called maintenance they sent someone out who shop vacuumed the water out and said to call back when it got full again and they'd come do it again. We were there on vacation not babysitting the A/C drip pan duty. We feel that could have been taken care of better.
We stayed here for our 28th. Anniversary getaway 5/16/21.
Very nice clean and comfortable, and the office staff are very friendly, nice helpful.
Well pleased with the location and easy proximity to town. Loved the creek outside the backdoor.
My boyfriend amd I went here for a weekend getaway and it was perfect. Close to the downtown area very clean and cozy. I would definitely stay here again.
This is an ideal location and perfect for couples with kids. We stayed in Alpine cabin 2. Everything was nice and clean with our arrival, we did have issues with the fire place, but we didn’t really need to use it. Great space and will visit again.
Thank you for staying with us, Amanda!
Great time on our honeymoon! It was my husbands first time in Helen and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for his first Helen experience. 5 stars!!!
Very beautiful locale. Very cozy accommodations especially for couples. Fantastic customer service. The only issues we had were too much noise from the guests in the condo above us and inability to access local channels to watch live NFL games. It’s a mountainous area and there were recent community-wide changes regarding cable/satellite TV providers. This negatively impacted TV watching for my spouse who is an avid NFL fan. Guests should be aware of this possible issue and bring their own Roku or DirectTV login information so they can access programming that might be unavailable locally.
We had a tremendous stay. The room and amenities were clean, well stages and accommodating. We will absolutely be back!
Thank you for reviewing your stay at the cabin!
This worked for us. Close to Helen but not too close. The backroad route got us downtown quickly and avoided the traffic. Two of us stayed there 3 days, a couple of extra wash rags would have been nice to have. Please note this apartment is downstairs. The stairwell to get down to the living area is narrow.
we had a great stay. Helen is a wonderful Place to visit. Would be back again.
Terrance, we will look forward to you coming back soon!
Great Rental Company to work with. Very nice condo, great location and we had a great time.
