The front porch welcomes you to sit and rest for a while. Enter into the living room with modern decor, a ceiling fan and a smart tv. The front bedroom has two twin beds. The separate dining room features a large oval table and artistic chandelier. To the right side of the dining room is the master bedroom with a queen size mattress and private bath. There is a shower/tub combination and a single sink vanity. There is also a sleeper sofa for two in the living room. The fully equipped kitchen is filled with all new appliances including a refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave and dishwasher. The green cabinets and granite countertops give the kitchen a cool and refreshing atmosphere. The small appliances are a standard coffee maker, toaster oven and a blender. The cabinets are filled with dinnerware, glassware and cookware, while the drawers contain cooking utensils and flatware. Off the kitchen is the second bathroom with a shower/tub combination.

Christmas in Helen
We had a wonderful time in Helen and can’t wait to come back. The home was extremely close to downtown which was wonderful for us. The property management company was extremely responsive to our questions. We would definitely stay here again!

Helen Christmas Parade
The rental was extremely clean and well-decorated; there was lots of room. Perhaps upgrading the bed sizes from a Queen and twins to a king and a queen. Living room could have used a comfortable chair.

Cute cottage just outside of Helen GA
This is a cute cottage just outside of Helen GA. It is located 1 mile outside of town. To us we thought it would be walkable but you would have to walk into town via a highway where there are no sidewalks.
We got there and there was no ice so the management brought a bag of ice. The fridge does not have an ice maker.
There are no extras like shampoo or conditioner. It is a good thing that I usually travel with those items but some people do not.
In the kitchen, there are no spices or condiments so if you are going to cook you will need to either buy or bring.
The layout was a little awkward for 2 couples as the second bathroom was a good distance away from the second bedroom.
All in all this was a great little cottage for a long weekend stay.

Thanks for your review and sharing your experience. We are glad you enjoyed the cottage! We make our best effort to provide details in the amenities list so that you can have accurate expectations; I think the spices and condiments would fall under "pantry items" which we left un-checked. We will look at our description to see if we can make anything clearer. Thanks!

Comfy Cottage
We found this little cottage to be perfect for our days in Helen. Everything was clean and cozy - as my husband put it - the biggest small house ever.
We were less than 2 minutes from the center of town but off the beaten path. Our host, Sherry, was very helpful and friendly.

Cleanliness is defined here!
This was the cleanest vacation rental I have ever stayed in - and I've stayed in dozens (and own one). Beyond the crazy level of clean, the home and its features were over the top - everything we needed was there, nice quality, and appropriate. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, while simultaneously very convenient to Helen. Should we choose to visit Helen again, our first call will be to book this property again. Bottom line: this place was so nice and clean that I found myself looking for something wrong. After 3 days I found an obscure scratch on a door.

Bear Footin Cottage is NOT SECURE!!!
We came for a two night stay and left our outdoor gear on the front porch. While we were out two individuals came and took our paddle boards, duffles, a white comforter, and later we found out they also took our gun in its silver case. The neighbors described an old woman and heavy set man taking our things and said they also enterd the rental property. We contacted Ga Mtn Rentals to share the crime and the female on the phone walked to a nearby place at their office can confirmed that she saw our paddle boards and gave us the address to come pick them up with no explanation as to why things had been removed. When we realized the gun case and bun were missing we called back. They are not taking this seriously and we are pursuing for a return or the weapon or compensation. Cleanliness and location mean nothing if your belongings are not secure and management cannot be accountable for their criminal staff.

Cozy Weekend Cottage
The house is just lovely. It is obviously recently updated. Decor is on trend and up to date in every room. Very cozy little cottage just outside downtown Helen on a quiet little street. Very picturesque. The house was very clean and everything was in excellent condition. I would highly recommend this property.
