The process was so seamless that we needed very little interaction. The little we did upon check out with some questions regarding garbage disposal was very efficient!
Fantastic, beautiful experience with all the amenities we would need in a house. All we needed to bring was soap/shampoo.

I was able to call ahead of time to get all of my questions answered from how parking was situated at our specific cabin to procedures and local spots.
Our cabin was perfect. Plenty of space with a kitchen on both the lower and main floor. Helen is a fun town and the cabin allowed us to enjoy our down time as much as the town itself

I enjoyed my family trip to Helen. The cabin was close enough to the little town, touristy area. However it was far enough that I felt like I had the mountain to myself. Very awesome location
The property was impeccable. Very clean. The kitchen was equipped with everything I needed t make a meal.

The staff at CROH were amazing. We had to change our dates due to weather and they were very accommodating. I had to call a couple times with questions I had and they showed patience and provided helpful resources. Looking forward to using their service again in the near future.
The Southern Skies Lodge property was conveniently located in Helen. We had 6 kids all under eleven and we all walked to and from the lodge into town in no time and then a two mile hike. The lodge had everything you need to feel at home. The kitchen was well stocked. Although there ware 2 kitchens we only use the one on the main level because everything we needed was there.

The time of our lives! This cabin was our best mountain getaway yet. The house is huge, clean and fully stocked. I mean fully stocked and accommodating. My wife brings our whole house when traveling and she's finally met her match. Both Kitchens had everything she could think of. All you'd need is groceries and there is a Walmart 15 minutes away right next to a Starbucks, Thank God. This house just has it all games, TV, fireplace, jacuzzi, grill and all times 2 there's 2 of everything. We watched sports and had beer on one level and there was music and wine on another level. Yes this house is huge, held down 3 couples together for a week and it was one big relaxing party week. Definitely making this an annual tradition. Southern Skies lodge the tribe will see you same time next year!

I called to get information and received the best help and answers. I appreciate the knowledge and timeliness.
This home had everything and more for our vacation!! So close to town with just enough privacy to make you feel miles away!! Very well stocked kitchen and linens!! We really appreciated the kitchen. We cooked breakfast and dinners for 8 very comfortable. The sunrise view from the balcony was the perfect way to start the day. The hot tub helped us end our action packed days of touring town. We are already looking forward to coming back to this Beautiful home.
