About Bob and Lorna

We built the Chalet in 2005 on acreage adjoining our other family owned property (Brett's Falling Waters Cabin) for our eventual retirement from our jobs in Northern Virginia. We love the tranquility and privacy of our home, as well as it's closeness to shopping, restaurants, and the entertainment offered by Black Mountain and Asheville. We hope that our guests enjoy and appreciate our home and the care that we and our (amazing) staff take to keep it comfortable and welcoming!

Bob and Lorna purchased this cabin in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

To start, we had never rented a "cabin" before, so this was a first. It exceeded our expectations, which made it all the better. We had my parents come down from Michigan, us from Louisiana, to stay there for two nights. We had a wonderful time, the location was perfect. Our only regret was that we did not stay one more night. Three nights would be the way to go if you have the time. The slightest issue we had is we could not get the hottub to work which we left a note for the maintenance people. That said, it in no way hampered our stay. We loved the place. The layout was great, to the point it may be the blueprint to our retirement "dream house" in the future. Thanks again...

beautiful home and beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful and private! The deck is wonderful and a nice place to spend time in the sun and enjoying the view of the valley. I loved the kitchen too and the home is beautiful, comfortable, and you feel like you are on vacation as soon as you enter.

The pictures do NOT do this gorgeous home justice!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do NOT do this house justice!! It is gorgeous and updated since these pictures were taken. Bob and Lorna were so gracious to accommodate us last minute. The house was easy to find, no trouble navigating from the recent ice & snow. We arrived to an immaculate home with a cabin feel. Bob was so kind to call me ahead of time to answer any questions I might have. There is plenty of room for our group of 2 adults and 6 kids. They have loved playing all the board games in the cabinet and we have all enjoyed the hot tub! I had the best nights sleep I've had in a while, snuggled up under fresh luxurious bed linens. I was truly shocked at how beautiful this house is in person. It's huge, with tons of storage! The gas logs are so welcoming and the outdoor fire pit has provided a fun relaxing time for all! It's 10 miles from Asheville and easy to get to. I would definitely recommend it and we will be coming back in the future!

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples looking forward to a "Celebration of Sorts" getaway weekend. This place did not disappoint. From the moment we saw the cute waterfall we knew we were in for a treat. The house is beautiful inside and out and very, very clean. Lots of room where each couple could have their separate space but could still come together and play games, sit around the counter or chill out on the decks. The view of the mountains is awesome and so peaceful to look at. Lorna and Bob have gone all out to make this place perfect for anyone who visits. Even though there were only four of us, there was still lots of room, in fact we never used the third bedroom upstairs with the kingsize bed. This room has a spiral staircase that leads us to a small loft with a twin bed and a futon. The other bedroom upstairs is really cool with it's own deck. It also has a baby crib if you want to take a little one. Did I mention the 2nd loft that looks down over the living room? This one has a futon also. The hot tub is really nice and clean even though we didn't get to use it because we were so busy doing other stuff. We are already thinking about making plans to go back. This place is centrally located between Black Mountain and Asheville. Being an early riser, I would go out on the deck early in the morning and could hear the roosters crowing (not to loud) from someone in the distance. Late at night we would stand on the deck and look up at the stars and moon. Such a clear view of the night sky. Asheville Lookout Chalet is everything we hoped it would be and more. Nice and Peaceful and the perfect getaway!!! Angela, Barry, Melanie and Paul ~ Raleigh, NC

Absolutely wonderful Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

While there are great pictures on here, they still don't do it justice. The views are great with huge windows in the front of the house. The house its self is well decorated and has everything you could want including radiant heat in the floors! It is convenient to Asheville without being too close. We will definitely be staying here again in the near future.

Family Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We packed that house with the max number of people we could, 10 adults 2 children and a dog! Loved speaking with the homeowners directly when renting and they were so kind to add bringing a dog last minute. We enjoyed the open downstairs floor plan and had a great time building a fire outside. Beautiful views, and not a far drive at all to get to Black Mountain or Asheville. It rained our second day but we would've loved to hike around the house, plenty of opportunity. The house was very well equipped especially needing a crib and a high chair. Almost any kitchen appliance you would need. If I had to say one down fall was we looked forward to using the hot tub, but the water level wasn't very high and it smelled a bit moldy in the room, but it was nearing the end of the season when they drain and clean it, but it did need cleaning our weekend so we did not use it.
