Everyone at Cabin Rentals of Helen was a pleasure to work with- even making sure we knew about a promo code for a discount off of our stay (which I wouldn't have seen on my own). Very friendly and knowledgeable, and checked on us before and during our stay. They even knew that we might have been having internet issues- and we were- and reached out to us proactively and told us how to fix it very easily.
The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Beds were comfortable, water pressure was good (and plenty of hot water), and a nice deck with a hot tub that we enjoyed. Would definitely rent again, and again rent directly from CROH vs. AirBnb, as it was a good bit cheaper.

The staff was very helpful with any questions I had, but did not need any additional assistance once we arrived to the property.
The Overlook at Lake Burton was exactly that, it had a beautiful view of the lake and mountains across the lake. The moon was so bright at night while we enjoyed a fire in the beautiful fire pit. The overlook was very peaceful and we enjoyed our stay, will definitely want to come back to relax.
