      Lovely Stay on Chattahoochee River

      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.

      Friday was our last full day in Helen and it was a dreary day. But we weren’t going to let that stop us from getting more waterfalls. Our first stop was the DeSoto Falls Recreation Area in Chattahoochee National Forest. From Helen, we got on GA-75 Alt North and followed that to GA-11/US-129 North. The recreation area was about 11 miles down …

      Thursday morning, we decide to change plans a bit. This would be the last day of nice weather, so we decided to head east and hit Tallulah Gorge. On the way, however, we wanted to get the waterfall that is perhaps Helen’s most famous - Anna Ruby Falls. After breakfast, we drove through Unicoi State Park to Anna Ruby Falls Recreation Area. …

      Wednesday, we were planning to hit some waterfalls closer to Helen, so not as much driving today. Our first stop was Raven Cliff Falls in the Raven Cliffs Wilderness of Chattahoochee National Forest. We headed northwest from town on GA-75 and GA-75A and then turned on GA-348 to the trailhead for Raven Cliff Falls and began our hike. The Raven …

      Tuesday, we were heading back towards the Dawsonville area, but with only one stop here, though it would be a long one. Our destination was the Wildcat Tract of Dawson Forest. From Steve Tate Highway, we entered the forest at the Wildcat Campground. Originally, we had planned to hike a 12-mile loop, but had a late start, so we decided we would do a …

      Monday morning, after we woke up, we asked the hotel staff for recommendations for breakfast and they suggested Hofer’s. This was just a short walk from the hotel so we gave it a shot and really enjoyed their breakfast. So much so that we ended up eating breakfast here every morning of our trip. After breakfast, we got ready and headed …
