Sure, you can camp or stay in the lodge…but the Barrel Cabins at Unicoi are a very special way to enjoy Helen. They recently underwent a renovation, so the unique barrel shaped cabins are newer than when we last visited but the layout should be the same.
We enjoyed a large kitchen and dining area. The living space was cozy, with a fireplace and cable TV. The back porch is accessible from the living area. It ran the span of the cottage, with several chairs and a table. It overlooked the lake and the lake trail, and we enjoyed sitting out there listening to the birds.
Smithgall Woods State Park is only minutes away from Unicoi, as well. It is another gorgeous park! It resides just off Richard B Russell Scenic Highway, a wonderful way to tour the mountains and access premiere hiking trails such as Dukes Creek Falls.

One Bedroom/Awesome Deck. The covered deck on this charmer is amazing. It’s only a one bedroom, but the sofa makes a queen sized bed, too. Great for a family or a couple. There’s a grill, fireplace, firepit and it’s super close to town (but still in the woods) for less than $100 per night!

Bigger Rooms/Mountain Views. This one has 2 bedrooms, HUGE windows, and we LOVE the hot tub on the large porch with the fireplace. A large kitchen opens up to the great room, with a pool table, too.
2 Decks/2 Bedrooms/Sleeps 6. The largest of our recommendations, it sleeps 6 in 2 bedrooms (and a futon.) We love the double decks (with hot tub,) pool table, and mountain views. Pups allowed (up to 3.)
