About Steve

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!

Steve purchased this chalet in 1994

Why Steve chose Helen

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!

What makes this chalet unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your vacation home. The house is absolutely beautiful and was well above our expectations. The list of local activities was very helpful and much appreciated. Our stay was awesome and the location of your home was perfect. We loved the privacy and the nature.



I will definitely keep you and your home in mind for future vacations and will tell my family and friends.

HAD A GREAT TIME THE CHALET WAS AS PICTURED.ROOMS WERE GREAT SIZE AND BEDS WERE EXCELLENT. IF QUIET AND BACK TO NATURE IS WAHT YOU WANT WITH ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME THIS IS THE PLACE. ONLY 2 SUGGESTIONS . INSTALL SOME LIGHTING UNDER THE NEW JACUZZI ROOF (WHICH WAS GREAT)SOME LOW VOLTAGE LIGHTS WOULD ADD A NICE TOUCH AND JUST ENOUGH NIGHT LIGHT.HAVE SOME OF THE TREE LIMBS CUT BACK FROM THE HOUSE TO LET SOME MORE SUNLIGHT IN WE THOUGHT THEY WERE A LITTLE TOO CLOSE.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Yes, quiet and nature are what we like, too! With all the great features of the home, we call it living a "pampered life" in the wilderness...yet it's still conveniently located to get to town and all the local activities with ease. Regarding the trees, we kept as many trees as possible when we built the home. The home feels like you are in a "Robinson Crusoe" treehouse with views of nature out every window. We live in a city with more than 5 million people, so getting away from the "asphalt and concrete jungle" is a real treat for us and for our guests. We get a lot of repeat rentals thanks to our unique setting and features. Folks keep coming back, and we're glad to be their mountain hosts. We're happy that you enjoyed our home, too!

It was a very nice chalet in a very secluded area. The interior was very nice and well maintained. The only drawbacks were the trees, bushes and weeds were very grown up around the chalet. There was a picnic table we couldn't use because the area needs trimming. We also didn't know that the only access to the front door was up a major flight of stairs. This was very hard for one of our family members due to Parkinson's disease. It was difficult for them to get up and down the stairs. Would have liked to have know that beforehand. Also, the upstairs bathroom tub was dirty and had a major stain around it. We didn't take a bath in it because of the stain. Other than these few things, the chalet was exactly what we wanted. The space was excellent and the ammenities (full kitchen, hot tub, TV, grill) fit our family very well.

Owner's Response: Regretfully, I did not know in advance that there was a special needs guest with your group. When folks ask us in advance about handicap access to our home, I always tell them about the front steps and that we are not handicapped accessible. This is a common problem with many homes in the mountains. Many lots are on slopes, not level land, and the homes often require a few extra steps to get to the main floor. Regarding the picnic tables, we have two picnic tables. One of them is on the main wooden deck of the house and is not in the yard or around weeds. The second picnic table should be in the cleared gravel area by the driveway and under the main deck. However, it seems that some guests tend to move it around at will. I have no idea why anyone would put the picnic table outside of this area and into the weeds. You never know what happens when you are not there... individual creativity and artistic license perhaps! Regarding the stain that you found in the upstairs bathtub, I apologize for this. I contacted our cleaning crew immediately to make sure this does not happen again. Thank you for making me aware of the oversight. We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay other than these few things!

Perfect Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was absolutely one of the best vacations my husband & I have had in North Ga. The chalet was perfect, spotless clean with all the supplies needed. We loved the look and feel of this beautiful mountain retreat. We really enjoyed the hot tub, the master bedroom with skylights over the bed where we feel asleep looking at the stars. It was close to Helen yet secluded. The tips from Steve were just great. we tried most of his suggestions and were not disappointed once. Lake Burton and the Chop house was excellent. We loved Bettys country store for all our shopping. We will definitely return to this wonderful chalet.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful compliments! I tried to list many of our favorite places and activities that we have found from going up to the mountains with family and friends over the last few years. I like to send this list to our guests as soon as they reserve our home. We want everyone to feel welcome and to enjoy the mountains as much as we do when we are there. We hope that you will come back to stay with us again soon!
By the way, summer is a great time for renting a boat at Laprades Marina on Lake Burton. They have small boats and larger boats...up to pontoon sized boats for larger groups. It's fun to boat around the lake and to drop anchor in a cove to go swimming or to stop for a picnic lunch on the boat.
