A charming and cozy rental. Excellent location to downtown...close enough to walk but just far enough away from bustling downtown.
We are so glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing the tip on distance to town!
The small touches, like board games, a well appointed kitchen, throw blankets, and more really made it very cozy. There were a few cobwebs in high corners, and a couple of door dents and very minor things that show it is a rental and not lived in full time but it was a great property. We'd stay here again. It is a bit too far to walk into downtown Helen for most people and the drive is very steep on a single lane road.
Thanks for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Took our two grandsons on a little 4 day 3 night vacation to rivers rest. It's on the river,cozy and clean.I cannot think of one thing to critique. This will probably become an annual trip.
So glad you enjoyed it. Make sure to call next time you book so we can apply your repeat guest discount!
I stayed at Rivers Rest with my family for one last get away before school started. It was a great property conveniently located to waterfalls we wanted to visit and to town. We walked to town each day. I was grateful for my backup camera since the drive was directly across from the river. I would stay here again. I do want to note that the bathroom door in the room with the king bed cannot close because the bed is too close. It wasn’t a problem for us. I loved having the half bath on the main floor by the kitchen.
Glad you enjoyed it! And thanks for the tip about the door.
Great location. Property management team got AC fixed same day when unit froze. Highly recommend.
Thanks for your review and glad we could get help so quickly!
Perfect spot by the river and walking distance to town.
Thanks for your comments!
We really enjoyed the cabin feel of the townhouse. The large balcony porches provided relaxation during the mornings and evenings with the sound of the river and birds. They also provided entertainment during the days as the tubers would get caught on rocks or squeal from a short plunge. I enjoyed fishing in the early mornings and caught several beautiful rainbow trout and a red eye bass while my wife relaxed with a coffee on the deck.
Thanks for sharing about your stay and how much you enjoyed the river!
The pictures didn’t do it justice. Very nice, clean, great view of the river and easy walk to downtown.
So glad you were pleasantly surprised!!
Beautiful place to relax. Excellent location. Very sad we have to leave
We thank you for staying with us and hope to see you in the future.
Everything was perfect! Extremely nice and clean location!
Thanks for your review!
Great stay at Rivers Rest. We have stayed at Rivers Rest several times. It is a family tradition for Thanksgiving week. Perfect location, great amenities, perfect atmosphere. Will continue this tradition in the future.
Thanks for sharing your tradition with us!
LOVE THIS PROPERTY ! GREAT LAYOUT ! WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF DOWNTOWN HELEN !
Happy to hear that you loved Rivers Rest! Come back soon.
We walked in and immediately felt warm and cozy! Very nice home and especially loved the spa and balcony areas. We wished we had more time in Helen, and we will definitely come back to River's Rest if we make it back to the area.
Wonderful! Thanks for letting us know. Remember you have a repeat guest discount if you call for your next reservation with Georgia Mountain Rentals!
We had a great time at this vacation spot.
So glad you had enjoyed you stay at Rivers Rest!
Our family of 6 really enjoyed our time. Very clean and felt we had plenty of room. The river view was great!
Glad you enjoyed Rivers Rest. Come back when you can!
This place is better than described. It was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated and so welcoming. The beds were super comfortable. I didn’t realize there was a Jacuzzi spa in the master bathroom, which was a nice bonus. The easily accessible upper and lower patios made the place seem even more spacious. The kitchen was well supplied with many appliances. It would have been nice to have more than one dish towel and a dish rag to wipe the counters. I called the management about it to see if I just couldn’t find the towels and they said that that is all that housekeeping must have left for us. It was not a big deal because we used the black wash cloth to wipe counters. There was a roll of paper towels but it would have been nice to have napkins provided as well. We bought a pack and left it for the next guests. We had a most wonderful time. Our only regret is that we couldn’t enjoy it longer. We would love to come back someday!
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of the amenities! Come back when you can.
Absolutely everything was PERFECT. We will definitely be back . I hope real soon, me and my family was dreading leaving so we ended up adding an extra day to our stay .
Glad you could get another day in! Come back when you can.
Rental was very clean and had the things one would need from home. Loved the warm throws and the deck furniture. Dishes and cookware were super nice. Loved the decor as well. The only complaint would be the steep driveway.
We absolutely LOVED our stay!!! The location of the cabin was great, just on the edge of town - super close to everything, but also very private. The cabin is very clean and beautifully decorated! We spent a good amount of time on the porches... swinging, rocking and sitting in the hot tub (which is the best one we’ve ever been in) listening to the stream. If the weather is nice you can open your window and let the stream lull you to sleep. The beds are comfy, there are extra blankets if needed. I love that both bedrooms have their own private bath. And the second bedroom has queen size bunk beds!!! The kitchen has everything we needed. Everything worked perfectly. The living area is cozy and comfortable with plenty of seating. We were contacted the first day to make sure all was well and to make sure we call if there were any issues. I have to say this was probably our best experience in a rental and we hope to be here again!!!
What we did and loved - Cimmi’s (pancakes), Scaztie’s (bagels), Cowboys & Angels (steak), Chattahooche Cheese Market (sandwiches), Anna Ruby Falls, Tallulah Gorge, Toccoa Falls, Dukes Falls, Minnehaha Falls. We hope to return soon.
This was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had staying in Helen. The property was so comfortable, and the way everything was laid out inside made it feel even bigger than it was. Being right on the river was so nice. We loved sitting out on the deck and listening to the rushing water. Everything was well thought out for guests, and the local rental company called during our stay to make sure everything was okay. We had one little hiccup during our stay, and the on-call maintenance person was there in 15 minutes to solve the problem. And when he found out it was my birthday, he even brought me a bottle of wine the next day! So sweet! My family and I had a great time, and we can’t wait to come back!
The river view is amazing. Two huge porches with hot tub and lots of sitting choices(favorite was swinging chair). Kitchen very well supplied for cooking. Private location but still close to town. Decor Comfy, beds very comfortable. We just sat on the covered porches for hours enjoying Georgia.would stay here again
Great Place to stay- Close to town. Just as pictured on website.
Only negative was the parking was steep and narrow for two trucks
My husband and I came here for the weekend and it was perfect! Close to town, Fully stocked & beautifully decorated, comfortable mattresses, and that view! Highly recommend!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property. The location is fantastic! The sounds and sights from the balconies can’t be beat. We enjoyed the sound of the flowing river, especially during the peaceful morning and evening hours. The hot tub was clean and was much appreciated after tubing and enjoying the outdoors. The inside of the home was very clean and comfortable. Overall, we had a great time on our Georgia mountain adventure.
This rental exceeded our expectations! It was clean and very well decorated. The driveway is a little steep but not a deal breaker. We hope to stay here again. It’s a very short drive to town or you could easily walk. The kitchen and pantry had everything needed to cook a meal. It’s a very quiet and relaxing place to unwind. The rental company is amazing too. They called to check up on our stay and were so helpful when I booked with them. Highly recommend!
Rivers Rest was a perfect location and very clean. Everything you need is there. Hot tub was very nice. Sounds of the river outside your window was fabulous. My favorite thing was sitting in nice rockers and watching the tubers go by. My family loved this place. Georgia mountain rentals were great! Check in and booking we’re super easy.
Rivers Rest has everything you need to enjoy your time in the mountains! We enjoyed being minutes from downtown Helen while feeling worlds away. With a beautiful view from every window and a home that offers everything you need to enjoy your stay, we cannot wait to return! The property management team reached out before checkin and once we got settled the next day to make sure we had everything we needed and offered their services should anything come up. Very friendly and courteous. Definitely recommend you consider River's Rest for your stay in Helen, GA
The cabin was super clean. It is located in the perfect place for peace and tranquility but walking distance to downtown Helen. The beds are really comfortable and we loved the double queen bunk beds in the second room. The porches facing the river is so nice. We loved that the pantry had basic necessities and seasonings so that we didn't have to buy everything. My kids loved the hot tub and utilized it everyday. Having a washer and dryer in the cabin was really convenient so we didn't have to go home with dirty clothes and towels. The owners have decorated it really nice and it feels welcoming and cozy. We will definitely stay at this location again. A++++++++++ Rating!
Very clean, Nice interior. Phones not working but Internet working well. I would like to stay there again this fall.
This was the second time we have used GMR for a trip to Helen and have been very pleased on both occasions. The condo met our needs and was convenient to all the attractions as advertised.
We were greeted with a phone call the day of our arrival. The cabin was dreamy. We just loved our stay!!!
The place was absolutely amazing. The views from the patios were mind blowing, and the interior was really well put together.
It's only like a mile to the main strip in Helen, but we felt like we were miles away.
A wonderful and relaxing experience. The townhouse is beautiful...(and somewhere in that house are my husband's sunglasses). He misplaced them. We walked into town, walked to get groceries at Betty's, we walked everywhere. I was impressed with the beauty of this location. The home had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and accommodating; I am ready to go back!
My husband and I stayed at River's Rest with our 8-year-old daughter. We absolutely loved it here. The place was clean and all the furnishings and decor were really nice. You can tell the owners put a lot of love and care into this place. We have dietary restrictions, so we cooked all our meals here. Everything we needed was available in this kitchen. I loved the huge pantry space for hiding away all our things too! The layout and space here was wonderful. There was plenty of space for cooking, eating, relaxing, sleeping. We loved the indoor and outdoor spaces. The location on the river was so nice and it is so close to downtown that we always walked anytime we headed downtown. This unit is located just on the edge of town, so leaving for various outings was easy too. GMR was great to work with and I loved their personal touches. We absolutely loved our stay at River's Rest and hope to come back!
My three daughters and I spent some girl time here last weekend before the wedding of my middle daughter. We were very happy with our stay. The rental was clean and cozy. The bedrooms were well laid out each having its own bathroom. The hot tub was wonderful on a cool raining evening and we loved the sound of the river. The location was great being close to everything down town. Be careful pulling in to the parking area, it is quite steep and if your car is low to the ground it may scrape and backing out can be a bit tricky. Overall it was a great place to get away for the weekend.
We had a fabulous stay. Cabin was clean, hot tub was on, and view was very relaxing. The cabin is close enough to walk anywhere you’d like to go. We will be back. The only down side was there was no cable or remote to operate TV in master bedroom. If that were available this would be 5 stars.
We had a wonderful stay at rivers rest. Everything was perfect and a beautiful location.
Perfect location, lovely accomodations with everything we needed. Sparkling clean and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend!
So close to town but felt so rural. Perfect location.Amenities were exceptional.
Cabin was clean, cozy and in a great location! Beds and pillows were all good size and super comfortable! Just be advised it does have two flights of stairs. First flight to get to common area off of garage (living space and kitchen), second flight to both bedrooms.
The rental was lovely. Did not want for anything. Well stocked, super clean, lots of room. It was a great experience.
Ga Mtg Rental staff were great to work with. When we had a problem, they took care of the issue.
Location was perfect for us, quiet, near town and great view.
Very private rental right on the river and walking distance to town. We were so relaxed! The only reason we are ranking the cleanliness higher is bc some ants found their way into the kitchen and in the hall near the garage.
