    I loved Helen. This as our first trip.

    I loved Helen. This as our first trip. I did not realize the amount of shops closed during the off season (end of January) However, We still had a really good time. Loved how quaint. ALL of the people were friendly. My favorites on this trip was Heidelberg, Hancel and Gretel candy. And then we topped the evening off over at Bettys across the street on the patio with some really , really tasty beer. The people and the bar tenders were so friendly. It seemed like we were all friends for a long time.

    Don’t come to Helen when it is raining.

    Don’t come to Helen when it is raining. And, there is not much going on in January other than the Christmas decorations are still up. There are some nice restaurants but they are all pretty expensive (over $40 for two sandwiches at lunch). All the shops downtown are way over priced, as I have seen better quality in some junk stores. We didn’t buy anything - just window shopped. The little park on the hill is nice and there is some free parking there. Almost all other parking is paid, traffic is awful and cops are everywhere anxious to issue tickets.

    Helen is a quint German themed town with interesting shops and eateries. You can park and walk around to most of the stores. Some of the stores further away from the town centre are too far to walk, but there is plenty to keep you busy for at least day. A river runs through town which offers tubing and other facilities in summer. We visited over the Christmas weekend Dec2023 and the lights on display were beautiful and magical. We returned for this reason. On the town square musicians were playing Christmas music and other themed entertainment were provided. The town and restaurants closed by 6pm on Christmas eve, which was unexpected but it added to that wonderful feeling that Christmas was sacred. So be aware that only one or two restaurants were open late for dinner. We attended the Christmas Eve Communion Service at the Helen Presbyterian Church. This was special. It was a rainy evening but the lights all over town were magical and being so quiet it gave enough time to look at the lights a few times. Overall Helen is worth a visit for a weekend. Do not miss the Christmas lights.

    Alpine Helen is a picturesque, authentic German town, which made me feel like I had crossed the Atlantic and gone right back to Germany!! It has several excellent German restaurants, wonderful shopping, and all the charm of Europe in its German architecture. We loved every minute of our time there at the Christkindlmarkt!! We also enjoyed Hardman Farm’s Victorian Christmas, a hike to gorgeous Anna Ruby Falls, and Babyland (all very close to Helen)!

    I have been to Helen many times and always enjoy my time there. There is always something new to do, something new to see, and always always waterfalls to hike ranging in trails from beginner to expert. There is also a good range of restaurants from fast food to formal. Book a hotel room downtown on the main street and you can easily walk to most restaurants and shops.

    The building itself is a bit older so when you look at the outside you can't imagine how incredible the actual room is. The room was immaculate first and foremost. Very spacious and thoughtfully laid out. The beds were comfortable, linens were super soft as well as the towels and washcloths. We were thrilled to be directly across from the little market and within walking distance of the entire town of Helen. I highly, highly recommend the Heidi Hotel!

    I truly appreciated the customer service. The management is kind and eager to make your stay a pleasant one. The original I booked was smaller than I anticipated and the management without question placed me in a room that was very spacious and went over the top to make sure my daughter & I were satisfied. The exceeded my expectations my by far. Thank you! Respectfully, k. Brockway

    I liked that this was close to down town Helen and we had no issues with bad traffic. Not many people go to this hotel instead they do go to the ones closer to town. This hotel does have a back route to take that leads to in town, so that’s easy instead of trying to go straight into town with all the traffic.

    The staff were very friendly and accommodating but understaffed. Really appreciated the shuttle to Helen! The amenities seemed good but it rained so hard, we didn't get to enjoy everything like we had anticipated. Room was spacious and view was nice, even with the rain.

    Located on the river. Our room on the back #201, had a pretty view of the river. Thankfully No Carpet. Old Hotel was quiet. Room was comfortable. Lots of pigeons so bird poop is an issue. $73 for a Sunday night. It's location makes the little town of Helen walkable.

    The property was a short walk from downtown Helen so it was nice to be able to park there and shop. The room was clean, only issue was our comforter had multiple cigarette burns to it in our non smoking room. It was nice to have a free breakfast at the hotel.
