Six Reasons To Honeymoon In Helen Georgia

No one likes talking about it, but who could doubt that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you can do? With weeks or months of preparations, all leading up to a single set of memories, it’s easy to get so stressed by your wedding day that you don’t enjoy what comes later!

That’s why a honeymoon in beautiful Helen, Georgia, is such a popular choice for newlyweds around the country. Once the stresses of the wedding are over, it’s your chance to get away from everything for a weekend or a whole week while spending time with the most significant person in your new life.

Just take a look the unique opportunities Helen offers to a happy new couple!Inspiration Cabin

Here are our six reasons to honeymoon in Helen Georgia.

1. Convenient Location

One of the reasons that Helen is among the country’s top vacation spots is that it’s so easy to get here! For those in the Atlanta area, it’s merely a two-hour drive. It’s also within convenient driving distance for the entire southeastern United States. If your state borders Georgia, Helen is probably easier to reach than you realized!

We even get plenty of visitors from central Florida! I guess people realize real mountains are more beautiful than ones made of metal and plastic.

2. A Fairytale Setting

When we say Helen is unique, we mean it! Helen is built in the style of a genuine Old World Alpine village, full of romantic Bavarian architecture and cobblestone streets. The town looks and feels like virtually nowhere else in America, creating a truly enchanting atmosphere with romance in the air! 

As you wander our softly-lit streets in the evening, surrounded by charming cottages and colorful villas, it’s easy to forget you’re in America at all. When you’re celebrating the timeless tradition of marriage, the timeless storybook beauty of Helen is a perfect accompaniment.

3. America’s Natural Wonders

Of course, even if Helen was built to remind us of a simpler time in another world, it’s still surrounded by some of the grandest scenery on earth. For decades, the Appalachians were the “gateway to the west,” and even centuries later, it’s hard to look at them without a rising sense of wonder.

Helen is also nestled snugly on the banks of the majestic Chattahoochee River, putting nature at your back door. And, many of our mouth-watering restaurants offer river side dining in intimate, candle-lit settings.

Can you imagine many better ways to let a stressful day flow off you than by having a gently-babbling mountain river accompanying your first dinner as a married couple?

4. Solitude

Newlyweds need time to themselves – and often lots of it! Rather than fighting crowds at theme parks, downtown hotels, and other tourists traps, Helen gives you and your lover a real opportunity to get away from it all!

Helen can give you all the quiet private time you could hope for with miles and miles of pristine wilderness at your disposal if your goal is to have a few days together with your lover with no interruptions. And if you happen to find a secluded grove in your journeys, well, you two will likely be the only people around for miles.

5. Plenty of Adventure

Other honeymoon destinations offer fake, pre-packaged experiences. Helen brings you the real deal – a world of real mountains, lakes, streams, and other opportunities for adventure.

Choose from riverboat cruises, horse-drawn carriage rides, or even hot air balloon tours! If your adventure doesn’t need a guide, we’ve got entire state parks nearby that you can explore at your leisure. Enjoy fishing from quiet riverbanks, or just watching our deer and other wildlife in their natural environment.

6. World-Class Luxury Cabins

There are plenty of options for high-class living in Helen, but for a romantic honeymoon, nothing can top renting a private luxury cabin! You get it all: the serenity, beauty, and privacy of a nature expedition, with accommodations that rival the best hotels, all in a quiet cabin in the woods. Why not spend your honeymoon in our luxurious treehouses?

A Cedar Creek Cabin Rental Luxury Cabin has all the amenities, including:

  • Cable TV and high-speed Internet

  • A full kitchen, including fridge and prep space
