    Very nice and clean accommodations. No surprises which I think we all dislike. Property is about a 10 minute drive to Helen. Close enough to Helen to enjoy all it has to offer as well as close to other towns around. Great for family trips.

    It was just right for my family. Big enough for everyone to have their own privacy

    Would have been nice if it had more than one tv,a hot tub, and chairs around fire pit. But other than that it was ok
