Second level has great traditional cabin feel with exposed beams in the ceiling, tongue and groove walls in dining area and wooden and stone tile floors along with big stone fireplace. These combined with rustic dining set, comfortable sofas, 42' HDTV and lots of windows letting the light in make this level great for get togethers. The deck outside has very nice and private Leisure Bay hot tub, big 7'-9' square which seats 8, has lots of jets and changing colors for those dark nights. Deck wraps the house and is 12' wide, has nice dining set and big Char-Grill Duo grill with one side propane gas and one side charcoal along with sideburner. There is also good set of utensils to cook great steak from local grocery store. Terrace level has spacious game room with carpeted floors and special steel ceilings along two private bedrooms which have closets and queen size beds. The game room has pool table, nice sofas, one recliner and the other turns into queen size bed, and of course TV and DVD player. The terrace level doors open outside and there is a simple firepit for roasting those marshmellows under stars. The upper level is dedicated to master bedroom, bath and private balcony. The bedroom floor is covered with carpet and huge bathroom has tiles while walls are tongue in groove type wood panels. There is massive king size log bed, TV, closet with hangers for clothes and a nightstand. On balcony there are two log style rocking chairs to enjoy the view. The Bavarian Pit Stop Cabin is suitable for families with kids, groups of friends, motorcycle and trailer friendly. The cabin has three stories with stairs, although the staircases are straight and extra wide, it still has limited handicap accessibility to the levels with bedrooms. Being on top of the mountain close to the city it has very good cell phone service. More

Spent a great 4th of July at the cabin with our family. Could walk down the hill and watch the fireworks without fighting traffic. The walk back up the hill is only for those in shape though. Cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the privacy and the hot tub. Our young adult kids loved the pool table. A great place to stay and very close to the heart of town. We will be back!

We were discussing our accommodations and location with other family members last night. Its perfect for us and our other family. Our grandchildren (10 & 12) got a little board around the cottage, but they have to be "entertained" so not surprising. We all enjoyed spending time together around the fireplace and in the village itself. Anna Ruby Falls was gorgeous. Of course, we had to visit the Cabbage Patch Kids Hospital. Not enough time to see/do all we wanted to. Good excuse to come back!

The Bavarian Pit Stop is a nice 3 level cabin located at the top/end of a road connected to Main Street Helen. While at the cabin we mostly utilized the master suite Jacuzzi tub, a back deck Jacuzzi for four, and outdoor grill. This cabin is well furnished on each level. 2 and 1/2 bathrooms (one per floor) met the needs of our 8 person group for the weekend. The entire top level is the master suite, and while it was not a deal breaker, there is no door between the staircase entrance from the living room to the master bedroom. We would absolutely come back again.

Thank you for your stay. Yes, AC needed some attention because it was turned too low by previous guests and froze. We got it back running the first night of new guests stay without further issues. Thank you for letting me know!

I was pleased with the location of the cabin & the cabin itself was nice & roomy. We didn't have good water pressure upstairs or downstairs & none of the windows had curtains. But what I really was the most disappointed about is in the description of the cabin it said "bring your toys to ride the mountain trails", soooo we came all the way from Macon, GA. pulling 3 four-wheelers. There was nowhere for us to ride unless you rented one from the locations that doing trail rides.

Thank you for renting my cabin and taking the time to write a review for it. The location of the cabin is on top of the hill, very close to Helen, and sometimes the water pressure is lower upstairs, showers and all appliances have still been usable. I had the pressure checked by the city and a private plumber, but at the time of checking, it was within their range. We have curtains in downstairs bedrooms and upstairs master bedroom has some as seen in the photos. There are none in the middle floor living area. I am sorry if you didn;t find the ATV offerings in the area usable. There are several locations which offer that service. Unfortunately my cabin does not offer a direct ATV trail, and I haven't advertised so. There might have been a misunderstanding since my description says "Bring your toys to enjoy mountain roads". There are countless mountain roads in the area to have scenic drives with road legal cars or motorcycles. One can spend weeks driving curvy and enjoyable routes looping back to Helen nightly and still have routes to explore. Heikki

the cabin is beautiful and very spacious. We found very clean. Any area has nice views, large Jacuzzi with lights that change, so great! My children were so happy that they preferred to enjoy the cabin instead of going out to the town We really enjoyed the pool table and games. If I have to write a complaint, I would say that the main room has no curtains, which is beautiful at night because you can sleep watching the stars, but in the morning the sun wakes you up very early.

Thank you for yours stay, the cabin is pretty close to what you described. We will add curtains to main bedroom, it has been without them for number of years, and being on top of the mountain by itself, the privacy is there without curtains. Heikki

We took our two adult children,their spouses and two young grandchildren on a week end get away. Bavarian Pitstop was perfect for us. Even though we had several people the lay out of the cabin allows everyone to have space. Young children were able to sleep on bottom floor while adults stayed up. GREAT hot tub with a lovely, peaceful view. Very short drive into Helen and main attractions.

Es una cabaña bonita y cerca a Helen, pero no es apta para discapacitados ni para adultos mayores (íbamos con dos y uno de ellos no podía subir ni bajar escaleras), cuando las habitaciones son en la planta alta y en la baja, con escaleras bastante empinadas e incómodas. Son tres baños pero sólo dos con duchas, y el de la planta baja es extremadamente pequeño y aún peor cuando se comparte con 3 adultos más. Si van 3 parejas ponerse de acuerdo con el tema de las habitaciones porque sólo vale la pena la grande de arriba, las 2 de abajo no están para nada dentro del nivel. Nosotros eramos 8 y toco improvisar una cama con cojines en la habitación de arriba para un adulto y en una de las habitaciones de abajo que iban con una menor, improvisar otra cama en el suelo. Finalmente mi esposos y yo tuvimos que rentar una habitación en un hotel en Helen e ir a la cabaña solo a compartir con la familia. Las zonas sociales son agradables para compartir, muy acogedoras.
