Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We live in a fun but busy urban environment. We need the solitude of nature in the North Georgia mountains to recharge our souls from time to time. Hiking, tubing on the 'Hooch', biking, and relaxing are among our favorite mountain activities. As our guests, we hope that you, too, will enjoy all the benefits of our treasured mountain home! We would like to extend a very warm 'welcome' to all of our guests! We enjoy sharing the privacy and solitude of our mountain home with our friends and family. It's a great place to entertain or to relax!

Why the Owner Chose Helen, GA, USA:
Our home site was chosen because of its peaceful wooded setting and its close proximity to the Alpine village of Helen. It offers the best of both worlds: the serenity of a private mountain home on 10+ acres of land and the nearby activities, shops, and restaurants in Helen. You can retreat from the world or you can go into Helen and enjoy all the festivities...it's your choice!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
From curling up by the fireplace to relaxing in the Hot Tub, it's a wonderful place to retreat from the daily hustle and bustle of work and life. We enjoy the spaciousness of the home, especially while relaxing in the Great Room or in the sitting area of the upstairs Loft overlooking the Great Room below. Another favorite: sitting and drinking coffee on the covered balcony of the Master Bedroom Suite upstairs...so private and peaceful! The two skylights over the king sized bed in the Master Bedroom Suite offer a nice view of the stars in the mountain skies, especially on clear or colder days. Nights with a full moon are a special treat!
