Let’s kick off December with a town that epitomizes the spirit of Christmas – Helen, Georgia. This iconic southern town offers vineyards in the foothills, breathtaking natural surroundings, and an alpine aesthetic people travel far and wide to see.
Even the residents say, “It’s the charm of Bavaria, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.” There is the Lighting of the Village event and the annual Christmas Parade, plus a Christkindlmarkt and Victorian traditions.
Add to that appealing home prices and you have the formula for one epic holiday retreat! So today we feature two of Helen’s treasures to add to your real estate wish list! The only question is, which will you choose?
Splurge: Custom One-Owner Helen, Georgia Cabin With River Frontage For $279.9K
Far from a true “splurge,” this custom-built cabin is all about Christmas cheer! It sits on over 100-feet of Chattahoochee River frontage for trout fishing and kayaking and what the listing calls “tubing the hooch.”
Sounds ideal for summer fun! But come wintertime this two-bedroom, two-bathroom looker offers a prime holiday backdrop! It’s nestled on the outskirts of Helen but with easy access to all the attractions. And the surrounding trees offers a peaceful escape.
Inside, you’ll love the gourmet kitchen and oversized porch overlooking the river. A gracious den affords a wood-burning stove, and each bedroom offers the comforts of home. You can’t go wrong with this splurge, which in all honesty, is more like a steal!
