The place reminded us all of when we were in Germany, serving and defending the free world during the ending years of the Cold War. We spent most of our time outside overlooking the river and enjoying each others company.

Situated on the Chattahoochee River within easy walking distance of just about everything you would want to do in Helen. Private balconies overlook the river for relaxing morning coffee or watching the tubers floating by in the afternoon. Would stay here again.

The inn is not adjacent to the river. We stayed on the second floor of the older portion of the inn.

The inn is very close to the Festhall--you can walk to...

The location in the middle of town is great for walking to everything and being right on the river. The rooms have all been recently renovated with double sinks, one in the bath and one out. View is off our balcony. Recommend.

I had trouble finding hotels in Helen which were accessible or had any information regarding it posted. Mostly, they are not. However, helendorf does a great job in that respect. There is an elevator and rather simple access to the Main Street sidewalk where you can get around the town. There are some places inaccessible due to stairs downtown but...

I was looking for a place with some peace and quiet away from noisy kids, teens and drunks and found it here at this very beautiful place on the river. I am a senior and drove over the area and was referred by a local resident. I love nature and the hotel is across from all the noise but it...

Just got home after participating in the 2017 Helen trout tournament. I didn't catch a winning trout, but the trip was overall highly successful because my wife and I spent two luxurious days at the Helendorf River Inn and Conference Center. Our room at the Inn was superb. Sparkling clean, gorgeously decorated and reasonably priced. The staff were extremely friendly...

It's in the middle of town,. walking distance to most things. The river is accessible, and our room was amazing. We had the large suite with a remodeled kitchen, fireplace and gorgeous bathroom. The whirlpool tub was a nice bonus!
