Uniquely Unicoi Winter Getaway
Winter can seem long, constricting and lacking inspiration. Shaking up the routine with a weekend away or starting the year with quality time together is rejuvenating. Unicoi State Park & Lodge is set perfect for a solo, couple or group cold weather escapade with mountain cabin rentals near historic Alpine Helen.
Skip the Winter Blues
Visitors and locals skip the ‘stir crazy’ and experience the thrill and warmth of settling into a cozy Blue Ridge Mountain cabin. And they are not the average accommodations. They are in a vacation class all their own, especially the all-around remarkable Barrel Cabins. The sizes vary, from one to three bedroom, to fit each excursion.
Adventure Abounds at Unicoi State Park
Each cabin is unique and provides the ideal setting for a winter retreat. Access to adventure activities at the park and Alpine Helen will free the kids – and adults – from devices as they take in the amazing natural surroundings. Guests can unplug on a guided hike or expand their knowledge of the terrain through educational programs on the landscape and wildlife. The Unicoi State Park Archery and Air Gun Range is another great way to get outside. If you are up for trying something new, instruction classes are available.
Visit Alpine Helen
Alpine Helen, another North Georgia treasure, is two miles from the park. Experience authentic Bavarian cuisine, browse the German-style shops, warm up with a craft beer or cocktail or hit a local vineyard for a tour and tasting. Alpine Helen is a truly extraordinary. Enjoy the best life has to offer in this curated hub of culture, history, tradition and art.
Escape the Daily Grind
A mountain cabin vacation can mean an escape from the ordinary or a return to something forgotten. It’s like listening to campfire stories with the marshmallow and chocolate of a carefully crafted S’more melting away the hustle. No need to bring the makings; we have S’mores Kits on site and ready for the fireside.
Home Away From Home
With a full kitchen and fireplace, Unicoi cabins are a serene scene for sharing a meal with loved ones. There’s no need to grocery shop if a break from planning and prepping is needed. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available in the Lodge with fresh, seasonal and local ingredients. The Unicoi Restaurant or the Smith Creek Tavern serve classic southern and American fare.
Renting a cabin near Alpine Helen is a great way to customize a vacation. And whether you get out in the brisk air, soak up local flavor or play games by the fire, it will be memorable. It will be uniquely Unicoi. The biggest decision is who to include on your mountain retreat
