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.

The hostel offers free shuttles into nearby Hiawassee, GA, so after dropping out stuff off we headed into town for dinner. We ate at a country buffet where I ate an inappropriate amount of food, then headed down to the grocery store to ...
... a German-themed town. Too touristy for us but Betty's General Store is a must. Walk to the back for fresh soup and sandwiches.
Two active gold mines are situated in Dahlonega and a tour is a must. Learn to pan and make some of the entrance fee back in real gold. I even bought a gold pan - just in case the opportunity arises again. One never knows...
After 4 days we headed to the town of Blue Ridge but stopped ...
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.
