Description Description
Finally, you have that time away, and you are looking to relax sitting on a porch listening to the river flow by and having a cup of coffee. Perhaps you are seeking the wonderful fresh smells of the mountains? Sit on the porch with friends and a glass of our local wine. A short walk puts you in the downtown area with many options for dining. The walk back to the property is a lovely path along the river. If you are planning all of these relaxing moments, then Rivers Rest is the place for you.

Pets are not allowed at Rivers Rest.

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.

Spectacular Place
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!

Great place to stay
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.

Warm, Cozy & Inviting
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.

Can’t wait to come back!
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!

Didn’t want to leave
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

Relaxing River Property
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.

Clean and relaxing
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!

Amazing!
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.

A perfect getaway
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

Amazing Cabin
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!

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.

Restful River...a slice of Heaven
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!

A perfect vacation!
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!

girls getaway
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.

River’s Rest
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.

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.
