The owner was very helpful with finding what we needed. She was also very sweet. We spent an hour with her and daisy, the friendly cat that truly rules the store. Bonus, kids would love the train out front! There is something for everyone.

Store is super-organized. Not a huge non-fiction section, but lots of fiction. Staff and pets are friendly!

I brought my book club to Mt. Yonah Book Exchange at the start of what was supposed to be a wine tour, though we only sampled from one winery and preferred visiting the local attractions like this one instead. (We are bibliophiles, after all!) The kitty cat, Daisy, was the perfect hostess, posing for photos. Owner, Ellen, couldn't have been... More

5 stars??? I give it a million!!! This place is far and away an awesome find tucked away in this tiny mt community. Books, Art, anything you need. The owners CARE and will get you what you want for a fraction of what you will pay elsewhere. And, you can pet Daisy the cat while you wait... ;)

My whole family and all of my friends have been going to this bookstore for years. Something for everyone old and young. Excellent variety and a wonderful kids corner. Not just a bookstore, there are all sorts of cool tie dyed shirts and arts and crafts. There is an awesome real train outside and real tracks that the kids can... More

Mt. Yonah Book Exchange is truly everything a book store should be! You are greeted when you enter, either by one of the amazing proprietors, or the real boss of the place, Daisy. The children's area is sublime and they have a fabulous local/regional author section. The deals are great, too, and the personal service is top notch. My husband... More

A little unexpected treasure in the North Georgia mountains!! While visiting Helen and surrounding area be sure to stop in. Charming used bookstore with thousands and thousands of volumes, wonderful advice on what to chose, and even a resident kitty to keep you company. Easy to find next to the big green locomotive. Don't miss it.

Mt. Yonah Book Exchange is a gem! First, there are plenty old train stations, but how many have a REAL LOCOMOTIVE? And how many have a FABULOUS BOOK STORE inside? Plus, there are lots of other things to look and and buy besides books. The minute you walk in you'll be greeted by the BOOK CAT (ask Ellen, the book... More

This is a great place to buy books. They've got a pretty good selection and a lot of great deals. I've even come across some hard to find books here. It's so nice to have a pleasant, friendly bookstore close by. Everyone there is so nice. On top of all that, I'm saving money by not needing to drive to... More
