More Xplor!e Fun

Xplorie just got better with new fun filled activities for Georgia Mountain Rentals’ guests. Here, I would like to give you more details to help make your selection easier.

As you know, most all of the Georgia Mountain Rental properties include exclusive Xplor!e Activities, arranged with local business owners. This arrangement is exclusive to Georgia Mountain Rentals and our guests. For each paid night at Georgia Mountain Rentals, the selected cabins, chalets and lodges offer one free adult admission for one activity of your choosing.

I decided to split the activities as follows…

Access is good through most of Helen, with anglers fishing right through downtown. The river has already reached a decent size in this area and leaves plenty of open area for casting. The river bottom drops just enough to create good holding areas for trout. Just remember that in the summer, fishing in Helen has the added sport of dodging the recreational floaters in hot pink tubes.

We hope you take time to visit the area and to celebrate Christmas by attending one or more of the special events, festivals, and parades scheduled this month. Welcome to a Christmas in the Mountains with Georgia Mountain Rentals! (more…)

Alpine Helen 2017 Oktoberfest

Looking for Oompah Central in the Northeast Georgia Mountains? That would be the Helen Festhalle on Edelweiss Strasse.

Helen has been noted for the longest-running Oktoberfest celebration in the United States, making 2017 the 47th Annual event. (more…)
