Asheville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

The most unique vacation rental in the Asheville area!

PLEASE DO NOT RELY ON THE 'INSTANT QUOTE' FEATURE!!! IT IS NOT ACCURATE BECAUSE OF THE OPTION TO 'ADD ON' AREAS OF THE CHALET: THE RECREATION ROOM/LAUNDRY AREA and/or EFFICIENCY APARTMENT.

The Asheville Country Chalet is undoubtedly the largest 2-bedroom/1-bath vacation rental available in the area (approx. 2,500 square feet) and probably the best bargain considering the size, amenities, and view!

PLEASE NOTE: This listing (www.vrbo.com/436612) is the 2-BEDROOM/1-BATH configuration of the Chalet. To rent the Chalet WITH the Master Suite and the entire main floor (3-BEDROOM/2 BATH), please inquire through www.vrbo.com/495206.

OPTIONAL ADDITIONS FOR BOTH #436612 & #495206: Include the Recreation Room/Laundry Area AND/OR the Efficiency Apartment. The Rec Room features a Ping Pong Table, Air Hockey Table, TV, Games, and Puzzles... and just extra space to spread out! It is available for an additional $50/night. The Apartment has a full Kitchen, private full Bathroom, private bedroom, and an open Living/Dining area which has a Queen sleeper sofa and a television and a propane-fired woodstove. The apartment, which can sleep 4, is available for an additional $100/night and WILL ONLY BE RENTED TO GUESTS STAYING ON THE MAIN FLOOR!

Designed as a Swiss Chalet, this custom-built home has transferred ownership only once since it was built in 1986. The cosmetic updates have maintained the original character of the house, while improving and adding amenities and comfort.

The main level 'living area' includes a Den, amply-supplied Kitchen, and a Dining Room open to the Living Room... the latter offering a gas fireplace, 18' ceilings, and a wall of windows - enjoy the view from inside!

The Den has Charter cable, great for movies or letting the kids watch cartoons (please note, there are no Parental Controls set). The sectional couch will comfortably sleep one adult or two children, and the room has a pocket door to provide privacy or buffer sound (movie watching in the Den while others enjoy music).

The two Guest Bedrooms are ample in size, and have queen beds with linens and pillows provided. The closets and dressers are ready for your use, and every window has light-blocking curtains!

The lower level Apartment has an interior door separating it from the Rec Room. Inside there is a Bedroom with windows facing East as well as South, private Bath, Living area with a Queen sleeper sofa, and a full Kitchen. It is ideal for guests wanting space of their own when the remainder of their party is on the upper level.

NOTE: The Apartment is NOT available to separate parties, it is strictly an 'add on' area of the house and an option ONLY to those making a reservation for the upper level. If it is NOT included in your reservation, it will remain vacant for the duration of your stay.

The ~900 square foot deck has a gable roof to provide shade in the seating area where there is a love-seat, chairs with ottomans, a coffee table, and side tables. The deck dining table has seating for 6, and there are a couple folding chairs if additional seating is needed. Most find it difficult to leave the serenity of the deck!

The 6-person hot tub is on the lower level patio. There is a Pergola in the yard shaded by the lush leaves of Wisteria, providing an additional outdoor entertainment area with an entirely different view! If travelling in winter, be aware that this property has the best sledding hill one could imagine!

Cable television, stereo with indoor and outdoor speakers (BRING CD'S), a land line with unlimited domestic long distance, and wi-fi are provided.

Available for use are a pack-n-play, high chair, and saucer. For the toddlers, there is one chair tall enough to sit at either the indoor or outdoor dining tables. Please specify in your Reservation Request if you'd like to use any of the children's items.

ANIMAL FRIENDLY!!! Pets must be up to date on vaccinations and flea preventative, obedient, and are not permitted to wander into the neighbors' yards. 'Dog Sheets' are provided to protect the couches and bedding if your pets are not accustomed staying on the floor. We also provide 'Dog Towels' to dry off paws and fur if they get wet in the morning dew or in the rain. We DO NOT charge a pet fee, however, we do inspect for damage and reserve the right to withhold the Damage Deposit if warranted.

This property is only a few miles from the Coleman Boundary in the Pisgah National Forest, 3 miles from Navitat Canopy Adventures (quite possibly the best zipline company in the country), 10 minutes to Weaverville or Mars Hill and 20 minutes to Asheville. The French Broad river is easily accessible with numerous options for water sports: kayaking, rafting, tubing, and fly fishing (several Outfitters in the area rent kayaks, SUP's, and tubes).

Voted 'Beer City' USA for 4 consecutive years, there is more than the fabulous craft breweries in Asheville. LaZoom Comedy Tours offer family-friendly as well as 'R-rated' adult entertainment, the Blue Ridge Parkway is beautiful any time of year, Bent Creek is among the top 10 mountain biking locations in the country, and other recreational options are seemingly endless! Mix in Asheville's cuisine, art, and music... you are not likely to find a vacation destination with so much to offer!

Now that the renovations are complete, the Chalet is available to rent in a variety of configurations! Consider it the a la carte version of a vacation rental… rent it as a 2-Bedroom or add the Master Suite for 3 Bedrooms on one-level. Another option is to add the lower level Recreation Room/Laundry area. An additional option is to include the Efficiency Apartment in your reservation!

To clarify, Rental Options are as follows:

- 2 Br/1 Ba, WITHOUT Rec Room or Efficiency Apt

- 2 Br/1 Ba, WITH Rec Room but WITHOUT Apt

- 2 Br/1 Ba, WITH Rec Room AND Efficiency Apt

Beginning in November 2013, www.vrbo.com/495206:

- 3 Br/2 Ba, WITHOUT Rec Room or Efficiency Apt

- 3 Br/2 Ba, WITH Rec Room but WITHOUT Apt

- 3 Br/2 Ba, WITH Rec Room AND Efficiency Apt

I've been in real estate for what seems my entire life. With parents as Realtors, it's always been a family business. I began appraising in college, investing in rentals at the age of 24, and have been a Property Manager ever since. I fell in love with this house and it's view during my first showing (as a Real Estate Broker)... luckily for me, my clients were not interested! Eight months later, I purchased the home and ~8 acres.

Paula Taylor purchased this cabin in 2004

This property and house leave people in awe... from the initial impression coming up the driveway to the expansive living area leading directly to that 'magnet' of a deck... it has the ideal balance of peace, views, and easy access to downtown and other amenities!

It is, undoubtedly, one of the most special properties in the Asheville area! Built in 1986 as a retirement residence with a Swiss Chalet design, there are charming and unique details throughout. The coat closet and pantry lights come on when the doors are opened, skylights and a passive solar design provide a light and bright atmosphere, the ceiling soars to 18' in the Living room, and all rooms of ample size.

The kitchen cabinets were hand-made by the original owner and feature a 'Small Appliance Garage': simply open the door with the brass 'Coffee Maker' label, and pull out the trolley upon which sits the coffee maker! The spice drawer might amuse you, or inspire you... the dumbwaiter is non-functioning, but still fun to check out! How often do you see a modern version of Thomas Jefferson's invention?

Multiple indoor and outdoor 'living areas' make this home an ideal get-away for intimate escapes, family reunions, or for your visitors who prefer a home rather than a hotel.

Spacious and comfortable, there are options to relax in/on the... Den, Living Room, Kitchen with a 'pass-through' to the Dining Room, the Deck, a shady pergola, and 8 acres upon which to roam!

UPDATE: As of October 2013, the Chalet can be rented with (or without) the lower level Recreation Room/laundry area and/or the Efficiency Apartment! The latter has its own kitchen, private bath, bedroom with a Queen, and a Living Area with a Queen sleeper sofa. Ideal for additional guests to have a bit of privacy from those staying on the main level!

I've gradually made improvements over the years, most of them cosmetic with a few upgrades to the major systems. Although it is still a 'work in progress', the home is fully functional and comfortable. It has already come a long way and I continue to enjoy the process of converting it into my vision and having the ability to share this special property with guests!

Please see www.vrbo.com/495206 to review additional rental options, as the Chalet on this listing (436612) is available as a 2 BR/1 BA.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is a so beautiful and well taken care if. You can not beat the view! The owner was very kind and accomodating. I absolutely loved the huge kitchen and tables outside so we could do dinner with a view. Also it's pet friendly so you can bring your fur babies with you!! Looking forward to coming back!

VALENTINE'S HONEYMOON

Valentine's honeymoon
  • 5 of 5
This place is awesome! Arrived with 5" of snow on the ground and sledded the big backyard hill all day long. Close enough (15-20min) to Asheville to get to town for fun, but also secluded enough for some nice peaceful relaxation. We really enjoyed it!

RELAXATION STATION:)

  • 5 of 5
Spent the weekend here as a meeting spot with some girlfriends. We really enjoyed the hottub, which was super clean, easy to operate, with a wonderful view. The kitchen was huge with every appliance one could need. We all enjoyed cooking together and eating at the wonderfully large dining table. Couldn't figure out the fireplace and the caretaker, conveniently located on next property, rushed over to help. The owner was easily accessible and very accommodating. I brought my books and studied by the fire. It was such a lovely feeling to be in such a cozy living room and gaze outside at the view of the mountains. When I finally pulled myself from the property, we all drove maybe 20 minutes or so to hike to a waterfall(Douglas Falls Trail).

GREAT ESCAPE FOR HUMANS AND DOGS

  • 5 of 5
Great place to get away and decompress. We were referred by our friends who have been a couple times and we had to check it out. Tons of land, beautiful views and great for dogs to explore and play. The house is super dog friendly which is a A++ for us!

Owner and caretaker are extremely responsive and willing to go above and beyond. It is an easy 15-20 minutes to Asheville, if you decide to venture in.

For folks who need Internet... it is WIFI and it is HighSpeed. I can't tell you how many times I have stayed at places and they said it was highspeed and it wasn't or the wifi was horrible.

EVEN BETTER THE SECOND TIME!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to the Chalet and it was even better than the first time, even despite the fact that leaves were late this year we had a great time. The house is cozy and relaxing, the view is unbelievable, the owner and the caretaker are lovely, and our dogs are still dreaming of running big loops and play in the front yard (note that our dogs have a good recall which you will need it here). We usually go shopping at Whole Foods and enjoy a nice home made meal on the lovely back deck. We will back and may stay even longer next time. The new shower is amazing!!! See you next year... Elena, Kurt with Livingston and Kiara.

COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for four nights, and had a wonderful time. The house had everything that we needed. The owner thought of everything, even having labels in the kitchen to help find things quickly. We instantly felt right at home. The view from the patio was outstanding, especially at night, which you don't normally think of as being a prime time for viewing. You could look out and see thousands of fireflies, seemingly orchestrated...just amazing. The location was great. We could not have been happier. Every day we went on different excursions, but were always excited to come back "home" each evening. It was so peaceful.

Also, we brought our dog with us, and because the patio is enclosed and has a great view, he was so happy to just lay around and take in the view like the rest of us. Again, the owner thought of everything, even having food and water bowls for the dog. Finally, we really enjoyed the five-disc CD player that played music in the home and outside. It made grilling out in the evening even more fun, so be sure to bring some CDs!!

I highly recommend this place, and will personally be looking forward to the day I can return and stay here again!
