They have a full service pharmacy, movie rentals, extended shopping hours, self-checkout, and accept major credit cards. Black Mountain (10 miles) has many wonderful restaurants; we can personally recommend the Black Mountain Bistro, My Father's Pizza, Veranda Cafe and Las Quezelas. For those who like atmosphere with their coffee, visit the Dripolator Coffeehouse on State Street.

About Bob and Lorna

Bob and Lorna live outside of Washington, DC where Bob works for a government contractor and Lorna is an IT Specialist with Prince William County Schools. We have been vacationing in the Asheville area for over 25 years and enjoy the many activities it offers, and look forward to eventually retiring to the Smoky Mountains.

Bob and Lorna purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Bob and Lorna chose Black Mountain

We built the Chalet in 2005 on acreage adjoining our other family owned property (Brett's Falling Waters Cabin). We love the tranquility and privacy of our vacation 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 staff take to keep it comfortable and welcoming!

What makes this chalet unique

Asheville Lookout Chalet has a private, away from it all atmosphere while being within easy driving distance of downtown Asheville and its attractions and amenities. Guests can enjoy the peace and quiet of time spent on the mountain, or as a convenient location for white water rafting on the French Broad River, hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway and exploring the Pisgah National Forest .

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, comfortable, and affordable vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an amazing time enjoying this vacation home. There was ample room for us, and the openness of the living area and decks were wonderful. We also enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit. Thank you again for offering your home for the weekend!!

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.
