The team has always been very responsive to my inquiries and needs before, during, and after each stay. I've been to Helen, GA for at least 3 to 4 times in the last 10 years and we always come to the same cabin with Rent Helen because of how smooth the process is and the quality of service.

We love the cabin "A River Runs Through It". We have been to Helen, GA for at least 3 to 4 times in the last 10 years and we always come to this same cabin. It is comfortable, cozy, well taken care of, great amenities, and water front privacy. It is the perfect family get away place.

We appreciated that we were provided contact information for the various potential ways we'd need assistance during our stay and then were free to enjoy the cabin as if our own.

A River Runs Through It was our first cabin experience and it did not disappoint. From the wooden staircase to the sound of the river below, it was just what we expected a cabin to be. The location was perfect, as it was a short drive to town and to waterfalls.
