Six miles away is Cleveland - home of the Cabbage Patch Kids which is definitely worth a visit.Best Things About the Resort:The peacefulness. Although Helen is an easy walk away, be warned the town is deserted during weekday nights apart from the restaurants. The activities manager runs trips and events although we did not attend any.Resort Experience:We were warned there were a lot of stairs and no lifts, but our one bedroom unit was on the lower level down about 15 steps overlooking the garden with the river at the bottom, floodlit tennis courts to the right, and tennis courts and swimming pool of another resort to the left.
The lounge had a sofa bed, chair, tv, small table and fireplace at one end and dining table with four chairs at the other. The kitchen contained all the necessary equipment with oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. We were even given scourers and dishwasher tablets.
The bedroom had a double bed, one bedside cabinet, tv and fitted wardrobes. It only had a small window with no outlook.
The bathroom was compact with shower over the bath, washbasin and toilet.
There was a deck outside with table and four chairs and it was very peaceful as we sat there at night with the birds and crickets chirping.
Maid service was available for a charge, but linens and towels could be exchanged by taking them to housekeeping on Monday and Thursday. There is a laundry on site with four washers and dryers.
Our unit was very clean as was the whole resort area and the staff very friendly and helpful.
There is a large deck overlooking the river where people were fishing and also a club room where activities are held, and there is a small library.
Gas barbeques were plentiful round the resort.
Check in was very quick and a parking permit is given, which is placed on the dash of the car - the parking place number corresponds with the unit number. Check out was even quicker as we checked out before office hours and just posted keys and permit through the door.

The town of Helen is beautiful with its Alpine Village atmosphere. The people are all very friendly and the shops are full of all kinds of German stuff.
Close by is Anna Ruby Falls. It is a little bit of a hike up to the falls, but very much worth the adventure. I had a two-year-old in tow, no problem!
The resort sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt that was so much fun, even in the rain!
