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.

Terry purchased this cabin in 2007

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.

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.

Wonderful vacation!

We had an amazing stay at Misty Ridge Escape. My husband, two children and I decided to spend a week in the mountains to relax and refuel this summer. The kids had a blast playing basketball and exploring the property and we really enjoyed the jacuzzi and the pool table. The cabin was very clean and well maintained. There are two televisions in the cabin but we did not even make use of them. The only problem we encountered during our stay was a few missing pieces in the board games that were provided but the kids were so busy during the day they barely noticed. We were just a couple of miles from Anna Ruby falls, 10 minutes from Helen and about an hour from Blairesville. I recommend eating at Ain't B's during your stay, the food is great, the prices are reasonable and it's just a mile or two from the cabin. If you are looking for some great family fun, I suggest tubing on the "Hooch." We enjoyed tubing so much that we went again a second day! We also enjoyed hiking and checking out numerous local waterfalls.

Nice cabin for families

This cabin is very nice and roomy. The main drawback for me is there is nowhere to put your groceries. I would not like staying anymore than the three nights we stayed without this. The game room is very nice for kids. I read in a previous review that the game room was cold so we took a space heater. Of course it didn't help that it had just snowed. The drive up the lane to the cabin the first time was a little nerve wracking. We also got to feel the earthquake that hit South Carolina! I would recommend this cabin for anyone making a trip to Helen.

Owner's Response: We are certainly glad that you had a good time in spite of the snow and ice that can occasionally hit the mountain areas near Helen. I was VERY surprised that you said there was no place to store your food. The entire upper kitchen cabinets to the left of the sink are left empty for that purpose. The shelf heights can be easily adjusted if necessary. Also, we have a LARGE side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with copious amounts of space for our guests to use. In a pinch, you can even put larger items such as bags of chips on top of the refrigerator. We have stayed at the cabin ourselves for as long as 3 weeks straight and have had no problem storing our groceries.

This was wonderful place to get "away from it all" ! Very quiet surroundings, I took a walk everyday. We love to hike and it was very close to Unicoi State Park. The lake hike was beautiful-not too long. Ruby Falls is also a beautiful place. Alpine village was great fun, chocolate shops and gift shops in plentitude. Our favorite was the glass craftsman shop. The cabin was great for just staying put and relaxing. We played, ping pong, pool and shot baskets. The cabin really delivered on fun!!!

We had a nice time. Two teenage boys enjoyed the basketball court. Roomy and comfortable. A little cool in the basement. We bought a small room heater to keep cozy. Enjoyed the visits from Bear...the neighbors dog. Very friendly.
