My wife and I stayed at Riverbend Motel & Cabins for a week while we explored the area looking for waterfalls. We had a very nice stay. The rooms were nice. Nothing luxurious, but they were clean, had comfortable beds, and decent showers. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful when we had questions, and even remembered our names over the week we stayed there. They don't provide a real breakfast, but had coffee and pastries every morning. Given the low price, the location of the motel is great. It's right in "downtown" Helen, so all the shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. We visited in March during the off-season. I imagine during peak tourist season, driving in Helen would be awful, so being able to leave the car at the motel and walk everyone in town is great. As the name suggests, the motel is right at a bend in the Chattahoochee River and is very scenic. They have swings right along the river and we saw people fishing in the river as well. Overall, we had a great stay and would stay here again the next time we visit Helen.

... properties for sale and I can still only dream...at 400K for an empty lot on the lake. And of course I found my favorite cemetery yet (ok not including the coonhound cemetery). Just a mile down the road from the lake house is a tiny little cemetery with just a few rows of headstones. What amazed me was the grave of Elizabeth Eller who lived 1827-1922. In a time when the average life span was much lower than ...
... famed Amicalola Falls - 3rd highest in the USA and the start/end of the Appalachian Trail. And then hiked from the visitor center to the falls and back on two different trials. Maybe 3 miles or 1/1,000th of the famed Trail. Like spending 10 minutes at the Grand Canyon!
And then we discovered the boutique town of Blue Ridge where the new money from Atlanta hangs out over weekends and holidays. Great shopping and the ...
6/13/10 - 6/18/10 - miles 37.0 - 83.5: I decided to invite my 16 year old son, Nat, with me this year. It was the best decision I ever made! It was quality time the entire way - an entirely different relationship. I was so proud of him and enjoyed his company so much.
