We rented the treetop cabin for weekend for my wife's birthday, and it was awesome. We loved the beautiful view from the wrap around porch, the gas fireplace at night, and the private Jacuzzi. Plus, we were only a minute or two drive from the main town (Helen). Tim and Cindy were really nice and helpful, Tim even met us...

My friend and nephew recently stayed in the Log Cabin and it was absolutely perfect!! Everything about this location was simply wonderful!! I especially enjoyed sitting/relaxing on the porch that overlooks the firepit and the river. The sound of the river flowing by the cabin was so peaceful!! We enjoyed a big fire at the firepit, grilling steaks and other...

Four of us stayed in the Treetops cabin, and we were all blown away when we arrived. We loved the cabin! Awesome wrap around porch, fun country décor, clean, and within a few minutes walking distance to the central area of Helen. Fireplace was sweet because we're from Florida, and it was a little chilly for us at night. They...

This was an awesome weekend! The fisherman's cabin couldn't be located in a better spot, river front with a fire pit with firewood, and only a 5 minute walk from downtown Helen. The downstairs cabin is a 100 yr old cabin with lots of history and a cool, funky flair. Yes, their are a few cobwebs, but like I said...

Our group had a great time at Bear Creek Lodge. The proximity to downtown Helen is a huge plus as you can simply walk to any of the restaurants and shops. We especially enjoyed hanging out at the riverside and grilling.

I went back to Bear Creek Lodge for our third stay and I plan to go back for many more! Previously I visited with my boyfriend and we stayed in one of the smaller cozy cabins (Treehouse is our favorite!), however, this time we decided to go with a group of 12 and stayed in the Lodge which was beyond...

We went for our daughter's birthday to the Big Bear Lodge and took our whole family and kids. It was a very memorable and fun weekend! The rustic mountain cabin experience is definitely worth it and you are within walking distance of downtown but still far enough away to be out of the crowds. Even though the water is low...

Angela- Thank you so much for your kind review. I am happy you had a good time with the family in celebration of your daughters birthday. I hope you get a chance to return soon!

We stayed at bear creek lodge and cabins!!! Awful just awful, the railing on porch was unsafe, bench has nails sticking out of it, so it was unsafe to use, the grill blew up in my husbands face, which I was told to go after the company!!! Oh and inside a smell of old musk or mildew and that was...

Each day after the guests checked in, I asked them how everything was, and they said fine- no mention of any of the allegations above.If they had expressed any of their concerns while staying there I would certainly have offered them other accommodations, or let them check out and given them a refund. I wonder why they chose to stay...

We had 9 adults and 8 children that stayed in the lodge and 2 of the other cabins for Labor Day weekend. The lodge was absolutely disgusting. For starters the upstairs bathroom had someone's genital hair all over it. I had to clean the toilet before I could even use it. The shower and sink looked like it hadn't been...

As I replied to the mother of this reviewer in the previous post, NONE of these allegations of uncleanliness were brought to my attention during their 4 day stay.. After attempts to extort money from us for a refund a day and a half after checking out, did these issues come to light. Why would they stay 4 days if...
