The booking process was simple and easy. The information received was timely and acccurate leaving nothing to be done on my part after booking.
Relaxing. Peaceful. Convenient to Helen. You get the pleasure of staying on river without tubers constantly floating by. Master suite was fantastic with a small porch overlooking the river, and the two downstairs rooms were perfect for children or teenagers. Everything you need to cook, build a fire, roast hotdogs or smores was provided. Hip waiters are also provided for fishing. We will definitely return.

Great cabin with a great location. Beautiful setting on the river with a nice deck to sit. Very roomy and very clean. We used the fire pit which was nice. Centrally located to Helen and short drives to other nearby towns. Right down the road from the tubing centers as well.

Rate stay - 5-star - Location. Location. LOCATION. 1st- the rental company? Fantastic! I had a few snags with dates (my end) and they were able to accommodate me without skipping a beat. 2nd- right on the CREEK!!! No tubers, so no people watching, just me and the kids in the creek with my lovely wife cheering us on. 3rd- silent as a graveyard (except for the sounds of nature) 4th- Animals! Lots of crows, a deer (we only saw her butt as she had just crossed the creek) and a big boy of a groundhog! I think he lives under the deck. A washer/dryer would have been super convenient, but we will definitely stay again!!! 10-10 would recommend. P. S. Its a three-minute drive to Cool River Tubing and if you wanna go to Cleavland and want to skip the heavy weekend traffic, you have easy access to the county roads.

Called to add my adult son to the party 2 weeks out. Very smooth. Rentals made sure linens were provided for him. I was not excited about having to sign away all rights on the rental agreement, but we are pretty respectful of properties, and all worked out well.
The cabin was tidy, well appointed except for a broom and pot holders. Fixthe window and clean them for even more river enjoyment. The town of Helen is great if you love beach boardwalks and Gatlinburg.
