Coral Hospitality-GA, LLC announced renovations are underway at Unicoi State Park & Lodge, a popular Blue Ridge Mountain retreat in Helen, Ga. All 100 lodge guestrooms will undergo renovations, as well as several of the property’s cabins.

“We’re excited to embark on this much-anticipated makeover of our lodge rooms and cabins this year, elevating our offerings to local residents as well as those who visit us from outside the state of Georgia,” said General Manager Bill Mish.

“Unicoi is such a wonderful, unique place to visit, and we can’t wait to wow our guests with refreshed, more modern accommodations.”

 

New features in the lodge guestrooms will include completely reconfigured bathrooms, new bathtubs, tile, marble and linens. The property also will debut four new suites and upgraded Wi-Fi service in the lodge, as well as updates to 29 cabins, including the famous barrel cabins.

 

Recently, Unicoi State Park & Lodge also renovated Smith Creek Tavern, a favorite dining venue for travelers and locals alike. Smith Creek Tavern offers guests the perfect spot to grab a bite after a day exploring Unicoi State Park and features an appetizing upscale bar menu. Additions included new tables and chairs, stylish lighting and an entertainment area with space for live music, pool and shuffleboard tables.
