It's never too early to start planning for your summer getaway. Finding the perfect place to "have it all," though, can present somewhat of a challenge. The city has it's limits and is expensive. The coast is often overcrowded. So where to go? The cabins in the mountains of North Georgia, of course. In Helen, you get the best overall summer getaway with something for just about every one — families, couples, friends, anyone!
The Great Outdoors
If your version of the perfect summer getaway involves communing with nature in all it's glory, Helen fits the bill to a T. Our cabins lie just outside the Chattahoochee National Forest, which is filled with every kind of adventure a naturalist could want. You can go horseback riding. You can go whitewater rafting, kayaking or tubing. You can dip your fishing pole into rivers, lakes and streams. You can hike through scenic woods encountering majestic waterfalls. You can take zip lines over a lush canopy of trees. Did we miss anything? Northern Georgia and the Appalachian foothills make this area a dream for the outdoor enthusiast.
The Family Gathering
When you take the family for a trip, you want to know everyone will end up happy. The cabin experience guarantees smiles for everyone. In Helen and the surrounding towns, you'll find a wide variety of family friendly activities. Choose from mini golf courses and waterparks for an afternoon filled with fun. Take a trip to the Alpine Model Railroad Museum or the Babyland General Hospital, birthplace of the Cabbage Patch Kids, to excite the child in all of us. Plus, you will enjoy all the family time in the cabins themselves with family game nights around the foosball table, pool table or fireplace.
Adult Night Out
A summer getaway, for some, might include the kids. But couples away for the weekend or parents who need a night to themselves will find that vacations are best spent in Helen, for recreation and romance opportunities.
Take a wine tour through the fast growing Georgia wine country. Helen sits in the middle of several vineyards and tasting rooms. Enjoy the fine wine of the region, the breathtaking views of the Appalachian foothills and take a bottle of wine back to the cabins to enjoy. You can also fit in a round of golf at one of the many area golf courses. And don't forget to book a couple's massage at one of the many spas in the area.
So whether it's a family outing, an adventure trip or a romantic getaway for two, renting a cabin provides the perfect overall summer vacation package, without fail. Tell us about your favorite adventure thrill, kid-friendly outing or winery.
