Reviewed yesterday NEW

nice lodge, clean, mattresses could be replaced, somewhat dated. prices were not posted for the restaurant . Property was well maintained. Not enough information about what was going on and what was open to the public, There was a Christmas Tree Display,, but we were not sure if we were allowed in or not.

Unfortunately it was raining the time we stayed, however the campground is beautiful. Hotel staff/Front desk was a little brusque but it may have been busy. I did not get a chance to actually look at the conference center but it looked very nice. The price was a little high given it was a state park, but lowered during the...

I hate to write a negative review for a state park, but I think others should be aware of our experience. Our bathtub was quite dirty (as in black--wouldn't let kids bathe in it). The spare blankets were wadded up into balls on the shelf in the closet. I went to fetch my child's sock from under the bed and...

Stayed for 2 nights. Everything as promised on the website. Great buffet breakfast and dinner. Only complaint is that, although there were probably not more than 50 guests, we were givrn a room located above huge, noisy electric vents that kept waking us up at night. Sounded like a lawnmower outside our window. A pity, as one comes here to...

At the last minute we were searching for a place to eat Thanksgiving Dinner. A traveler recommended that the Unicoi State Park Restaurant was open for Thanksgiving. What an answer to prayer. We were traveling back from our stay in Watkinsville for our 25th anniversary on Thanksgiving Day. Good news the front desk at the lodge stated that walk-ins were...

Wife and I came for Thanksgiving weekend, arriving on T-day and staying 4 nights. This is our first time staying in the lodge. On our previous visits we stayed for a whole week in the barrel cabins, which are really fun for a young family. Anyway, the lodge room was fine - clean, and nice sized. I was a little...

My husband and I stayed at the Unicoi Lodge for our anniversary trip to Helen. Upon arriving, we were greeted by a very nice man at the front desk. However, the niceness of our trip really ended there. We got checked in and went to our room in the "D" hall. The room was very run-down and in need of...

The park has wonderful views. The trails are great. It does get a bit crowded but once your out on the trails you have plenty of space. Bring your camera to document the sights. Really close to downtown Helen but still feels secluded.

We visit the campgrounds at Unicoi every year in October. It is close to the Octoberfest festivities in Helen, and we find it more enjoyable to be out in nature then cooped up in a lodge or motel. The campground facilities are very nice, bathrooms are always well maintained. We've pulled a camper one year but usually just set up...

The lodge is located in a state park. It is a beautiful property and easy to find. There are five (5) buildings four (4) of which are guest buildings the other being guest registration, restaurant and meeting rooms. We arrived after dark and due to very little lighting found it hard to locate the building (C) that our room was...
