The team is outstanding! Love the welcome texts and the ability to be able to contact a member of the team at any time during our stay. They are helpful, polite, and extremely accomodating. They are one of the reasons that I would call this property management company before any others.

The stay was perfect. The home was more than well-equipped with everything we needed. It is spacious, gave everyone enough room, and very comfortable.

Great Winter Escape! We really enjoyed our stay at Burton Bass Lodge. The house was spacious and nicely furnished. We enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen and playing games around the nightly fire. The bunk room was perfect for our teens, who also enjoyed some time on the water in the provided kayaks. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation!

We had holiday week at this house! We hiked (Angel Falls was our fav), we went on a great ATV tour at Sunburst Adventures, we kayaked on the lake, we burned alot of fantastic smelling firewood and we did not want to leave. The kids room is great, loved everything about the master and appreciated the stocked kitchen. The driveway was a bit hard to find and learning both ways onto the street helps alot. Having an SUV is definately helpful. We rent houses everywhere, Im a bit picky...this one gets my complete approval for future renters. :) We were very happy with our vacay!

Every interaction via phone or email with the Cabin Rentals of Helen team was professional, courteous and went above and beyond expectations. The house itself was great but the service will have us booking a vacation with CROH next year as well.

Cannot say enough about the beauty of the Burton Bass Lodge, access to gorgeous Lake Burton, and the care and attentiveness from the Cabin Rentals of Helen team. We'll be back!
