About Gay
My husband and I are both from Georgia and have always loved the mountains. Having raised three sons, we enjoyed many vacations and long weekends staying in or traveling through the beautiful Northeast Georgia Mountains.
Why This Property?
With the children grown and having more time to ourselves, we had the opportunity to travel more often to the Northeast Georgia Mountains and Helen became our regular destination at the end of the day. That is when we found our peaceful, relaxing townhouse and made it our vacation home. The layout of the home is comfortable and it is conveniently located to downtown Helen. We enjoy it so much w ... more +
Unique Benefits
The main benefit of this home which captured our attention is the fact that you can look down from the ridge top and view the Alpine Village. It's especially beautiful at night when all of the village lights are glowing in the dark. It's great for watching the balloon races in June and the July 4th fireworks show. The location offers convenience to restaurants, shopping and activities. Should ... more +

A wonderful stay in Helen
Date of Stay: October 3rd , 2018

In October we had the pleasure to stay in Gay's and Randy's Ferienhaus in Helen for ten days. The location of the property is in walking distance to downtown Helen, it is just perfect. The property itself is outstanding. It is very, very clean, the kitchen is fully equipped, - dishwasher, toaster, coffeemaker etc. There are more than enough towels in the bathroom for everybody. Helen is a beautiful little town, good restaurants and the area around Helen is ideal for hiking and so much more. Thank you again for everything. Thank you again for

The Ferienhaus
Date of Stay: August 30th , 2018

We stayed two nights at the Ferienhaus and it was fantastic. It was even better than we expected. The house is spotless and exactly what we needed. Gay and Randy were great hosts and very accommodating. It is up the side of the mountain, which was explained to us, so we opted to walk down into town and pay the few bucks to cab back up. We really couldn’t have picked a better location. Thanks again for everything!

Best rental in Helen!
Date of Stay: July 17th , 2017

A great place to get away!  We so enjoyed our stay at The Helen Ferienhaus. The owners of this townhouse provided so many amenities that we felt like we were at home. They really do it right. Way better than a hotel. And there's so much to do - shopping, antiques,  zip line,  tubing, horseback riding,  not to mention the beautiful mountain views. We stayed 3 days and couldn't do it all! Will definitely stay here again!

This lovely townhouse worked perfectly for us. Each of the two upstairs bedrooms had advantages — the back one having a great view overlooking the hillside and the town, and the front one enjoying the morning sun. Because we came In the winter time, we were able to enjoy the electric fireplace in the living room. The back deck overlooking the town below would be a favorite spot during warm weather. Wifi worked perfectly, and the TV was excellent. The kitchen is modern (great side by side fridge and freezer) with everything we needed, including coffee, creamer, and sugar. We enjoyed the town of Helen, and appreciated the tips from Gay and Randy. We especially liked the Sautee Nacoochee cultural and history museum attached to the Folk Pottery Museum, and a hike up the trail to Anna Ruby Falls. Highly recommend this rental.


Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. For the reasons you mentioned--the bedroom view overlooking the hillside and the Alpine Village, enjoying the panoramic view of the surrounding mountains from the spacious deck and the close proximity of the various activities--is why we fell in love with this townhouse. It's a great location for a peaceful and relaxing stay and yet it is a 5-minute walk to downtown Helen. We are glad you found our townhouse comfortable.

Wonderful Stay!
Date of Stay: February 17th , 2017

We had such a wonderful stay at The Ferienhaus! Gay and Randy provide a fantastic home-away-from-home for their guests. The pictures that are provided on the website are absolutely what you experience. The townhouse was immaculate and Gay and Randy provide special little touches such as coffee, creamer, sugar, etc. They met us exactly as they said they would and showed us around and gave tips on what to do and where to eat. We have never felt as comfortable on a trip as we did this time. The view from the deck and the master bedroom is fabulous, not only during the day but also at night! We explored many surrounding towns, many waterfalls that are very close, did a lot of hiking in the mountains, ziplining and even rented an ATV for the day. The townhouse is a 2 minute drive to downtown Helen and is within a 5 minute walk to all shops and restaurants. We hope to be able to return and will definitely stay at the Ferienhaus! We highly recommend it!


Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive review. We are so glad you enjoyed our townhouse; we will continue to strive for a clean, comfortable and relaxing stay for all of our guests. It is exciting to know you took full advantage of the outdoor activities surrounding Helen. It still amazes me that Helen has so much to offer to a variety of guests...whether it is the historical tours, arts and crafts, wineries, shops, flea market, antique stores, restaurants or the numerous outdoor activities...there is something for everyone! We hope you visit us again!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your kind review of our townhouse. We strive to give our guests the comforts of home and help make their stay enjoyable and relaxing. It's fun to hear our guests participating in the various activities in and around Helen. The townhouse is conveniently located to wineries, state parks, ziplines, hiking trails and a golf course.
