Some reviews from of our guests....

My grandson and I came up for a couple of days fishing. Man, it was such a blast. We caught numerous fish and really enjoyed the experience and scenery. I have been here numerous times throughout the years but this was my most enjoyable trip. The cabins, the staff, and the fishing are all 1st class!!!! These people are so friendly and make you feel like family. The day we left to return to South Carolina, my daughter in law called to ask my grandson if he had a good time. His response was “Momma, I liked this better than Disney World”. Enough said 🤗🤗

Our Memorial gathering went so well, all the family felt it was tasteful and elegant. They loved the surroundings!
-Sarah S

We have stayed here numerous times over the years and it never disappoints! The view and cabins are awesome with tons of nearby hikes!

Do you want your first look wedding photos or do you want your aisle walk to be your big reveal?

The First Look lets you have an inimate moment with each other before you're in front of all your friends and family. And it makes a fantastic emotional photo/video 📸

Our cabins are a short distance from the beautiful town of Helen! You get the quietness and simplicity of the mountain life but can also enjoy the variety the city life offers!

Rain on the wedding day is bad.. right? WE THINK NOT!

Rain on your wedding day is good luck because it signifies that your marriage will last. As you know, a knot that becomes wet is extremely hard to untie – therefore, when you “tie the knot” on a rainy day, your marriage is supposedly just as hard to unravel! 🌦️

We are wishing the Yorks a long and happy marriage 🤍🤍
