Through Helen, North Georgia’s Alpine tourist town, the Chattahoochee gets heavy doses of hatchery trout on a regular basis. 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.
The December Calendar is filled with holiday activities in the mountains. Living and working around the corner from Helen, I just have to take an occasional drive through town to see the lights, people, and excitement. 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…)

How many remember the last time you were able to witness the Total Solar Eclipse? One thing is for sure, if you saw the last Total Solar Eclipse in Georgia, you were 47 years younger than you are today! The last Total Solar Eclipse to pass through our state was on March 7, 1970. The next big evening is just weeks away! We are busy here at Georgia Mountain Rentals, planning and organizing our Valley Viewing of the Total Solar Eclipse passing through the Northeastern corner of Georgia, including Helen and Sautee Nacoochee on Monday, August 21, 2017.
