About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Alpine Escape is steeped in Helen History. Originally owned by the founders of the Alt Heidelberg Restaurant in downtown Helen, the house was built for entertaining. Converted into a Bed and Breakfast in the 90's called the Royal Windsor, it was showcased in Southern Living. Purchased in 2005, the home has been completely renovated to it's orginal charm but with many additional luxuries.

Alpine Escape is a true by owner rental. Lori and Chuck take great pride in their home and update decor, amenities and the property on a regular basis!

Close to Helen, Unicoi State Park and Lake Burton, the home is secluded on 3 acres with a beautiful iron gate. Two covered decks and three outdoor decks are surrounded by woods yet offer views of Tray Mountain. After you have tired of all the area has to offer, you'll have a private place with lots of space to enjoy family and friends while sitting by the stone fireplace, playing pool, teaching your kids to play pin ball or simply listening to the awesome Klipsch Sound System while relaxing.

Ranch style house makes it Great for family or friend get aways with a fully stocked kitchen complete with a wood burning stove - ever had fresh bread cooked in a wood burning stove!! The back patio has a gas grill, coal fired grill and a smoker.

There are three bedrooms with private bathrooms and the fourth bedroom has an awesome bathroom with travertine shower just across the hall. The half bath is located just off the pool table and bar area! A loft contains two twin futons with down mattresses that can be converted into a King for added guest!

Alpine Escape is truly a unique get away!
