    So Alyce! This I some really informative list of Places. I have been to only on from the many listed on this article.  The Fairfield Inn & Suite. They took COVID seriously and kept the space ultra clean. The breakfast was nice with lots of variety. We were surprised since many hotels eliminated the buffet style breakfast, in the common room. There were fresh fruits, yogurts, eggs and sausage etc. I am glad I came across this Article, Now I got a few selected to try out.

    As I read through you review on Helen, I cannot take my off the gorgeous accommodation although they seams a lot expensive with the various condition but I must say that this are places that can take your mind off the haustle of the day to day. From Helen chalet sitting on the river to Chattahoochee, all are good places to help focus and keep your mind relaxed.

      Hi Parameter, Any time of year is great time to visit Helen GA, but the prices are likely to be the highest on holiday weekends and during Helen’s Oktoberfest from mid-September to early November. If your travel dates are flexible, you should be able to find lower nightly rates for travel in the off seasons. Good luck!

    I’ve traveled a lot on the East coast of the US but never really explored the western part of the state. It looks beautiful. Your website is very thorough and offers tons of information if you are visiting in the area. Helen, Georgia looks like a very nice place to visit. I’ll have to remember this website when I plan my next trip in that area.

      Hi Nina, Georgia’s coast is quite beautiful but it’s alsost hard to believe how quickly the landscape changes when you arrive in the mountains in the Northern part of Georiga. The town of Alpine Helen is a unique treasure that would certainly surprise someone who came across it without knowing where they were headed. I hope you get a chance to take a scenic detour towards the mountains on your next “east coast” trip!

    There are so many exciting places to choose from. I love the townhouses and the Chattahoochee Chalet also the lodge. My family, brothers and cousins are scattered all over the world and we plan vacations to meet for at least a week. The Georgia selection would be a good area to check out a little more closely. I love the facilities that are in the area, and the access to the river. I am sure they would enjoy it,. Thanks for introducing me to this area.

      Hi JJ, A vacation rental house in Helen is the ideal choice for spending holiday time with a large group or family. Enjoy your trip!

    I am German and have been looking at choices for a good Oktober Fest.  There just are too many.  All say they are good, but are usually small and not authentic.  The one in Helen piques my interest.  So I am going to look at all the places to stay that you mention are good choices.  I will go from there.  Thank you!

    • Alyce says:

      The town of Helen GA has been working on its Alpine charm for decades, and in its 50th year celebrating Oktoberfest, the town is excited to share its authentic celebration experience. Be sure to book your place to stay as early as possible as Helen is a popular Oktoberfest destination and the town always sells out of rooms on busy Oktoberfest weekends!

    Hello, Alyce!

    My choice is definitely the Breathless Waterfront Condo on the Chattahoochee River for sure!!

    I’ll be undoubtedly looking forward to visiting Helen after reading your website. Your post is so thorough and clear, very reliable as it shows what one should expect of all those wonderful places to visit.

    Thanks so much for sharing and I’ll keep an eye on your posts. Stay safe!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Antonio! The Breathless condo on the Chattahoochee River is the perfect spot to take in the scenic views of the water and easily walk to everything in downtown Helen. Great choice to help you fully enjoy your trip!

    Oh wow this is a very comprehensive post on the best places to stay in Helen. I’m personally interested in staying at the Biscuit Inn because it is just so cute and I only travel if my dog can come with me (at least within the states). Thanks for letting us know that there is a minimum of 2 nights stay, guess it’s very popular? 

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Sunquan, The Biscuit Inn is indeed a popular choice with dog owners and the “gourmutt” dog treats they provide are sure to make it a dog favorite too!

I especially like all the options and photos you’ve posted of each of the places you recommend. I also really like how they are all aesthetic and affordable. Thanks for putting this together to make my Oktoberfest planning a lot easier.
