PERFECT FOR HIKERS, ADVENTURERS, LOVERS OF NATURE

Waynesville Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you enjoy hiking, camping and the great outdoors, the Treehouse Chalet is a wonderful vacation destination! Recently renovated with a brand new master suite, this cozy treehouse offers a relaxing home base from which to pursue all of your favorite outdoor activities. It is refined and modern yet completely unpretentious.

With 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, this is an ideal space for couples traveling together or families with children aged 5+. The Treehouse Chalet is an A-frame home with a private master suite built right below the 'A' structure.

The A-frame boasts an interior of 2x6 tongue-in-groove wooden boards from front-to-back, floor to ceiling. For the steeply pitched roof that means single boards of 20 feet in length! You just have to see it to appreciate it.

Located in the A-frame is:

-- a cozy kitchen with hand crafted cabinet doors featuring handles carved from rhododendron branches collected on the property;

-- a dining counter made from pecan wood harvested from our north Florida back yard —and milled and crafted locally in Balsam, NC;

-- a full bathroom with tub;

-- a living room/seating area with futon sofa, additional seating, tables, bench toy box, flat screen TV, DVD/VCR, and cable modem with wireless router;

-- Jotul wood stove

-- two very unique, ~4-ft high skylight-style windows which cantilever open on a horizontal axis, bringing the sounds of the rushing creek, singing birds and the fresh air to you when you're inside;

-- beautiful pinewood floors;

-- a rustic wooden chandelier to illuminate it all;

-- a loft bedroom overlooking it all the chalet with bright lighting, double bed, high-quality bedding, screened window and window fan for the hotter months;.

The private-entrance master suite, eight steps below the A-frame, features:

-- a huge deck with large picnic table for outdoor meals;

-- large, screened casement windows;

-- double bed with high-quality bedding;

-- accent paneling made from pecan trees harvested from our FL home, milled locally in Balsam, NC;

-- seating area with dresser, and remote-controlled TV;

-- complete bathroom with a new tiled shower featuring shelves made from stone pulled from out of the creek on the property;

-- beautiful pinewood floors,

-- warm, pinewood ceilings

-- inset lighting

-- washer & dryer facilities

-- large closet and shelving area for clothes storage.

Doesn't it sound fantastic inside? But that's not all. You have even more to look forward to outside! We provide an outdoor grill for additional cooking options and by the creek is an outdoor fire pit where you can responsibly enjoy all the hot dogs and s’mores you can fit on a stick -- just like camping! A few fire pit implements such as skewers are provided (but if you want to cook on the campfire, please bring your own camp cookware...we don't provide that...at least not yet!!)

We are happy to share with you our homey family getaway. We hope you will make many wonderful memories at the Treehouse Chalet!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Treehouse Chalet easily accommodates 4 guests, and can accommodate up to 6, but we suggest that this only be attempted when the party includes young children. Total square feet of 'inside space' is about 950. We have provided a child's air mattress to guests before, and the futon is often used for sleeping (adults or children). We reserve the right to refuse rental to parties we deem to be too large for the accommodations. Our concern is wear and tear on the unit as well as your personal comfort!

Caveat: Because a) the master suite is separated from the A-Frame frame and b) the loft bedroom is only accessible by ladder, some families with young children prefer to look for other accommodations. Please call us if you have questions. A child's room monitor is provided for split sleeping arrangements.

Our active family enjoys everything the great outdoors has to offer! We purchased the Treehouse Chalet as a means to build memories, year after year, in a special place which is far different than the environment we enjoy in Florida, our current home.

Our children are thrilled to go fishing, hiking, tubing, camping, swimming and sightseeing throughout Western North Carolina. There are many early mornings we leave the Treehouse for an adventure and don't get back until after sundown.

In 2012, we will be opening the cabin to renters previously unknown to us for the first time. The home is very special to us, and we are pleased to be sharing it with people who value the same things that we do and who can appreciate the special setting we are trying to create.

Our motivations for renting are not profit. We merely want to break even. Anything we clear over taxes, insurance, power, utilities, and maintenance costs will go into improvements at the Treehouse Chalet. In fact, after your visit with us, we'd love your suggestions!

Josie Summa purchased this chalet in 2006

We chose to purchase a vacation rental in this area for the climate, topography, biodiversity, geographic interest, accessibility to numerous national and state parks, and countless opportunities for outdoor recreation.

I love waking up on a June or July morning and drinking a cup of hot coffee or cocoa on the porch....while wearing a sweatshirt and jammies, and wrapped in a blanket because it's so COLD!

Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5
We simply loved it here. Everything was perfect from the great living space to all the amenities there. It's hard to describe but we felt at home as soon as we walked in. Josie is great to work with and so helpful. The neighbors across the way are also very good but not intrusive. We could not get our rav up the drive but it's not a 4 wheel drive and the extra walk did us good! I would recommend this lovely home to anyone .

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. For those with front wheel drive, we recommend backing up the driveway at the switchback. Also, unloading from the top cove road is best at arrival. That way, you're always unloading DOWN steps, instead of up them. I will add this tidbit to my "Helpful Hints," as this driveway seems to vex about half the guests!

I loved the cute treehouse and we had a great time. We picked a great time to go, the ski slopes had just opened the weekend so they had a great time skiing. The only thing I did not like and must have missed the information about the steps going up to the treehouse, from where we parked the car. Anyone with a bad back or bad knees should not stay here, but overall it was a wonderful get away. All the necessities were there if we had forgotten anything and the owners were very informative of what we needed to take and to do and not to do. Great weekend getaway!

Smoky Mountain Chalet Getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a treasure!!! Spent 5 days at the Treehouse Chalet with my two sons, 15 & 13 from 10-15-13 to 10-20-13. The place was perfect and the owners thought of everything. We had no issues with using any of the electronics, the WiFi was great for the kids in the evening when we weren't exploring the property. It was the perfect time of year, the colors were amazing! We went horseback riding at Cataloochee Ranch, gorgeous place, and zip lining at Navitat Canopy Adventures just outside Asheville. The driveway is steep and the owner suggested backing in if I was a little nervous which worked out perfectly. The stairs are many and a little steep as well but I had 2 strapping young men to help transport everything so it wasn't an issue. You simply cannot beat the price on this stunning mountain retreat!!! We will definitely back :-)

Owner's Response: Sounds like you had a great trip. We were not able to make it as planned prior to your visit - sounds like we missed great color! Glad all was still in order. Please come again ~

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the cabin and would highly recommend it. It is a charming place and we thought it was very well-located to explore the Smokies and the surrounding areas. Thanks for a great stay!

Summer break

  • 5 of 5
Stayed a few days in the mountains for some cycling and hiking. Cabin was very comfortable and convenient to starting some beautiful bike rides up to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Enjoyed the hike out the back door and love that mountain stream that runs along the property.
A great place (has everything you need) to stay if your looking into the Maggie Valley/Waynesville area - we want to come back to the mountains soon!
