PANORAMIC VIEWS FROM 4,100 FEET! A LOVELY MOUNTAIN CHALET

Balsam Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Stay in a beautiful and comfortable mountain chalet in the Smoky Mountains 30 miles southwest of Asheville, North Carolina. You'll have a fabulous panoramic view from nearly 4,100 foot elevation during the day - and an absolutely enchanting view of the twinkling lights of nearby Waynesville at night!

Mother Nature invites you to relax and enjoy beautiful Walker-in-the-Hills with its cold, clear mountain streams, its surrounding hardwood forests, incredible wildflower displays quiet ponds and delicious wild blackberries - all without leaving our mountain!

The deck and surrounding trees are visited often by the many varieties of songbirds. Enjoy watching the fast, feisty and beautiful hummingbirds that visit the feeders multiple times every day! Let your children and guests enjoy feeding the fish in Pollywog Pond. 'No Fishing Please'!

You will be located only minutes away from many popular attractions such as the palatial Biltmore House and Gardens, Maggie Valley, Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casino, Blue Ridge Parkway, numerous championship golf courses, horseback riding, exciting white water rafting, llama trekking, elk watching at the Pisgah National Forest, snow skiing on Cataloochee Mountain, Great Smoky Mountain National Park and Railroad, gem mining and delightful craft and antique shopping and dining in Asheville, Waynesville and Dillsboro.

Relax in the comfortable living room with cable TV, gas log fireplace, DVD and CD players. The dining area seats 6-8 comfortably and opens to the upper deck and a spectacular view!

The master bedroom features a queen size bed, plenty of closet space and a newly redesigned private bath with shower. The upper floor features an office with high-speed broadband internet and all-in-one printer/scanner/fax.

The kitchen includes a large refrigerator, ceramic range/oven, microwave, toaster, toaster oven and coffee maker, dishes, pots, pans, utensils and gadgets, etc. The Formal dining Room seats six or more comfortably - so invite your friends for dinner!

The lower floor features a spacious bedroom with two double beds as well as a Sitting Room with a 57' TV! The couch in the sitting room converts to a very comfortable Queen Bed. The downstairs also features a covered patio and a fully equipped laundry.

Additional Features

Large deck with wide open view of the sunrise and the lovely Waynesville below.

Wireless or wired High Speed Internet access for your laptop computer is provided with a separate office area in the Master wing. A Fax machine is available and unlimited long distance calling in the US, Canada & Puerto Rico is provided for our guests.

Rentals are normally done on a weekly basis from Saturday afternoon at 3:30 pm through Saturday morning at 10:30 am. This gives us time to make sure the home is properly cleaned and prepared for our next guests. We occasionally accept 3 night minimum stays - but on a limited basis. See our website for more information.

We look forward to having you stay in our home

Ron and Mary Jane Thompson are retired and have a home in La Cita in Titusville, FL. just across the Indian River from Cape Kennedy.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 2004

We have owned a vacation home in this community since the early 80's. We love Walker-in-the-Hills so much that we purchased additional property in the 90's and had our permanent home built there in 2002. We purchased this wonderful chalet in 2004 from our neighbors, Harry and Ruth Bliwernitz, in 2004.

The view! It's a beautiful view looking to the east toward Waynesville. The home is just far enough away from the city that you see the church spires in the day and the magical beauty of twinkling city lights at night. There's a lovely pond next door where we encourage you to feed the fish - no fishing please. The community is made up of everything from small cottages to large, beautiful mountain homes. It's quiet and peaceful with a special ambiance and character of its own. It's situated on the eastern slope of one of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the Appalachians, Mt. Lyn Lowry.

We just finished our third year - thirty day stay - in the Chalet. As usual, the property was well presented, furnished, with all of the possible needs considered by the owner. The very personal touches added by the owner included various kitchen & dining items. Also, available was a full range of entertainment center items, WiFy, Printer, Blu Ray, TV, VCR, CD/DVD, Fireplace, etc. The owner is always available in case of any potential problem which arises. The golf facilities available in the area are great. No where will you find more challenging Courses. We highly recommend this property and it's owner to anyone who would like to visit any area that has wonderful weather, beautiful views, and a great place like Haywood County to visit.

We had a great time at 136! It was easy to walk in and immediately be "at home". The Personal touch in furnishings and accessories provided by both of you is excellent. The Chalet is just what we needed, giving Gary, Brandy (our 5 pound POM), and me plenty of room. We loved the deck, sitting outside each evening watching the clouds and occasional showers. The temperature was perfect for us to escape the heat at Hilton Head Island. The humming birds were very entertaining with their protection of the feeder. We played about 12 rounds of golf at some great mountain courses. We also discovered Clyde's Restaurant as the best breakfast place around. Nico's was a great place for sandwiches, Bogart's is great for everything.

Thank you so much for letting us stay here again. We all have so much fun. From going to the swimming hole to relaxing on the couch, we had many adventures. Everything is wonderful - don't change a thing!
My Mom and my Dad had their 15th anniversary here. Last year they had their 14th here. It is now a tradition!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. The tranquility was delightful. Everything we could have wanted was here. We felt as if it were our home. We also enjoyed the ducks on the pond.
