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

Steve is very thorough in making sure your stay is as easy and eventful as possible. The home is gorgeous, secluded but within driving distance from some really neat spots. It was the perfect location for a much needed weekend getaway for the 4 of us. Thanks, Steve!

Beautiful and rejuvenating vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

From the absolutely gorgeous view, the relaxing and comfortable chalet, to the perks of being close to several natural attractions and the adorable town of Helen, GA, I can not recommend this place enough. Anna Ruby Falls and Unicoi Lake are within 10 minutes driving distance and a must see for rejuvenation and inspiration. I highly suggest going to check out Helen's German artisan shops, but the most important suggestion I can make is just to wake up with a cup of coffee on the balcony upstairs and soak in the wonderful forest sounds. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

The cabin was great, was amazingly secluded, but within easy driving distance of Helen

  • 5 of 5

The room sizes and layout was wonderful. Owners were a joy to deal with and we are had a great weekend stay. Only two complaints were the automatic lighting mechanism on the grill didn't work and the internet service was slow. But, we should have thought to bring matches, and who would expect fast internet service on the edge of a national forest. We had a great time and would definitely return! Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your compliments! Yes, we have the fastest internet service that is currently available in our very rural location. Unfortunately, high speed internet has not made its way to our area yet, but we keep hoping that it will get there sooner rather than later! Please tell your friends and family about us. Come on back for another visit!

Loved the chalet. Very spacious and roomy.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was convenient to City of Helen and the Anna Ruby Falls. We had three adults and two young girls. Plenty of room for us to spread out. The setting in the woods was great, very peaceful. I believe in the fall will be beautiful.
