Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Our names are Terry and Kathi Torzala. We have been married for over 40 years and currently live in Tucson, Arizona. Terry is a consulting biomedical engineer for medical device manufacturers and Kathi is a human resource consultant and career coach. We enjoy our trips back to Georgia to visit all our friends in Helen and in Atlanta. We enjoy relaxing and escaping in our cabin, Misty Ridge Escape.

Why the Owner Chose Helen:
We moved to Marietta, Georgia, a northern suburb of Atlanta, about 30 years ago. At the time we definitely knew we were moving into a beautiful area of the country. Each of the seasons in north Georgia exhibit a special beauty. However, nothing prepared us for the spectacular beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Helen, Georgia, only about 74 miles north of our home. During our first trip to Helen, we were highly impressed with the natural beauty of the Chattahoochee River (which runs right through downtown Helen), Unicoi State Park and Anna Ruby Falls (both only a few miles away) and, of course, Mount Yonah (the highest mountain peak near Helen). Subsequent visits demonstrated to us how intense the seasons are in Helen. Springs are punctuated with the natural beauty of rhododendron, wild azaleas and dogwoods, to mention only a few flowering plants. The summers yield more natural beauty all around with temperatures considerably cooler than Atlanta. Opportunities for many and varied activities abound. The intense colors of fall rival and, many times, exceed the fall color of New England. Winters provide quiet relaxation and an occasional light snowfall frosts the mountains on a par with a Currier and Ives setting. We fell in love with the Helen area and began going there often. Ultimately, we purchased Misty Ridge Escape, where we seek a change-of-pace and an escape from the stresses of everyday life.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
What don’t we enjoy about escaping at Misty Ridge Escape? We have plenty of amenities in the cabin. The romantic loft bedroom master suite offers us privacy in a beautiful setting with our own private balcony to look out at the mountains. The Wi-Fi Internet system allows us to communicate with our friends and tell them about all the great fun we are having in Helen. We have a game room that offers an escape even when it rains, including an indoor basketball court, ping pong, pool table, card table and some classic board games. In the evening, to relax, we jump into the hot tub and enjoy its warm waters. If we want to stay in, our kitchen offers all the appliances and cooking tools we need to prepare a dinner for all our friends or enjoy a romantic dinner for two. The additional table and chairs on our outdoor deck allow us to commune with nature. We can listen to the birds in the morning, evening and at night. Sometimes, we see some deer or turkeys or other friends from the local fauna population. When it is time for a change-of-pace, we hike on the many miles of trails in Unicoi State Park or push out from Helen on a tubing or kayaking adventure on the Chattahoochee River. Between Helen and Unicoi State Park, there are many adventures to be explored, along with the many other national forests and state parks available close by. Later we can visit some of the quant and unique shops in downtown Helen to purchase that perfect item to add to our home décor, a bottle of local wine, crafts or pottery. Helen also offers many top notch restaurants with a variety of menus for breakfast, lunch or dinner to satisfy any palate. You can sit outside along the Chattahoochee River and enjoy the relaxing sound of the water as you dine or seek a quiet corner inside a romantic restaurant. There is virtually no limit to the fun that you can have in Misty Ridge Escape and in Helen.
