Incredible experience

My husband and I stayed here for a little 2nd honeymoon. This cabin was amazing! The staff was very helpful and the cabin was so cute and clean. You can’t beat the location. It’s just far enough away from the city so that you can get a mountain feel, but close enough to get to Helen easily. Beautiful little town! The cabin look exactly like the pictures.

50 years

Very nice cabin Stocked with everything we needed. Cabin felt secluded even with other cabins near by. Road was a dirt road but well packed just needed to drive slow. Overall we loved this cabin, great for a couple. Cabin was cute.

Loved Our Stay At Bear Hug

Everything from the booking experience to check out was awesome. We try to go to Helen at least once a year, this year it has been twice. It is our Happy place. That being said, we have stayed with several different rental companies. Hands down Georgia Mountain Rentals has been the best!!! The staff was extremely helpful at booking and through out the stay. Bear Hug is this awesome little cabin that is perfect for a couple. Pictures absolutely does not do it justice. Although there are a few cabins around, this was not an issue, we still had the privacy we desired. We usually try to get a cabin with a view, this is not that, but something to be said for the quiet of the woods and the rain in the trees that is very relaxing. That is what we needed most out of this visit. I typically am not one to give 5 star reviews, I feel most things can use improvement, but based on past experiences this company and cabin deserve it!

First time in Helen GA

We stayed in Bear Hug cabin and it was wonderful. The cabin was very clean and warm. Nice layout inside and nice porch on the front. Loved the ramp up to the porch and great security light as your parked your car. While I know that it is difficult to maintain roads where there is a lot of cabins in the woods, the path up to the cabin was in bad shape. Some very deep holes to avoid. Other than that, we loved our stay in Bear Hug. Also, we loved Helen GA and without a doubt shall return and hopefully can stay in Bear Hug once more!

Great getaway

We enjoyed our stay in the Bear Hug cabin. The cabin was neat and clean and everything worked. Easy access to the town I guess if I had a negative it would be the proximity of this cabin to the others around it. But it wasn't a game changer.

Great experience!

Bear Hug Cabin was quiet, clean, comfortable and very cozy. It was a very short drive in to Helen, Georgia where there was great dining and entertainment. We also visited several of the beautiful waterfalls in and around Helen. We enjoyed our stay at Bear Hug and will be renting again from Georgia Mountain Rentals.

Our Stay at Bear Hug

We arrived to find our cabin in absolutely EXCELLENT condition. The cabin was locate in a beautiful wooded area. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. I thought bugs would be an issue, however, except for one night after a period of rain, there was none. The bed was very comfortable, all the appliances were in excellent condition, the bathroom was very clean, all the TV’s worked fine, internet service was excellent, the BBQ grill was used and found clean and full of propane and the living room furniture was quite comfortable. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable stay. Johna was a great host and answered all our questions.

Great stay

We came here on our honeymoon and stayed in Bear Hug. It was very clean, quiet,and peaceful. We couldn't have asked for the staff to treat us any better. We will surely be back for another visit in the near future.

Fantastic weekend

This was an amazing little cabin. Owners were so kind and helpful. Even called on Saturday morning just to make we had everything we needed.

Great Weekend Get Away

We needed a couple of days away from phones email and work. This cabin was just what the doctor ordered. Spent the whole weekend at the cabin with one trip to eat dinner out at Mully's Grill. Not quite as secluded as some of the other cabins we have rented but secluded enough. All in all a very relaxing and romantic weekend. Mission accomplished.

we had a great stay the only complaint I have is the ramp gets a little slick when wet other than that great place

Clean, comfortable, great all around!

This cabin was one of the most nicely appointed cabins we have stayed in. Everything was in excellent condition and very clean. In fact, the only negatives were very minor things: we could have used a cutting board in the kitchen, and it was a little tricky to spot the turn-off to the cabin on the highway. Otherwise, it was 5-stars across the board if you are looking for a quiet, comfortable place in the woods. (It is also a little bigger than it looks in the picture.) Quite close to Helen (less than 10 minutes).

Bear Minimum

The cabin was lovely, comfortable and in a good location. Our issue was the limited amount of towels, 1 dish towel, no condiments and no coffee. Also, no rug at the back door to wipe your feet. Acorns fell on the roof constantly so it sounds like the cabin is under attack. There were no rules near the hot tub as the information claims.

Cozy Comfortable Retreat

What an amazing retreat and close to everything yet quiet and relaxing!

Great place to stay

A good place to stay. The location is close enough to Helen that it’s not burdensome going to and coming from town, but far enough away to give an intimate feel. Pictures don’t do this place justice. Would recommend to anyone

Take your cleaning products

Helen is always a great place to do weekend vacation .Upon arrival the cabin was in a great location but was very disappointed in the cleanliness. The sheets,towels were still from the last guest I think and the shower curtain was mildewed and bathroom was totally unacceptable but we called office and drove across town to get new sheets and towels. We have rented several times before and never had problem like this but were overall just disappointed in the cleanliness of the cabin

Relaxing retreat

We spent three days in November at Bear Hug. The cabin was located within 5 miles of Helen but was quietly tucked away in the woods providing peace and quiet. The property was clean and well-maintained. We were pleasantly surprise at the size of the cabin as it was larger than we anticipated from the photographs. The staff answered all our questions and was very helpful with all aspects of our vacation. We most certainly would stay at Bear Hug again! We absolutely loved our experience.

Everything about this cabin was positive - even better than the photos. Management and Housekeeping are to be commended.

Great location

This cabin was a perfect location for our visit to Helen and the surrounding area. Even tho there were other cabins, they were not extremely close and it was very private and quiet. We found the cabin to be just as described, very comfortable and clean. We would definitely like to come back to the area and to this cabin
