About Leisa Munce

Todd and I and our two teenagers live in Melbourne Florida. We purchased the first Chalet for a 'safe place' to run to when these nasty hurricanes come through. But then we fell in love..in love with Maggie Valley. It's wonderful to see those mountains and visit our 'home away from home'. Many years later I still get as excited about going as the day I first saw the place!

Leisa Munce purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Leisa Munce chose Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area

We looked at many homes before choosing this one. A lot of the properties in the area require being a billy goat to access them! So many have steep drop offs and the roads aren't paved. This location has a very gradual incline and the road is paved right up to the front door. It was just perfect for our family.

What makes this chalet unique

The large yard offers an area to play or relax and enjoy. In the spring and summer it is a great place to throw a frisbee, football, or spread a blanket and enjoy a picnic. In the fall just rake up a huge pile of multi-colored leaves and jump right in. And of course you've got the winter months where you can slide and saucer down the hill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Leisa,



I owe you a huge apology for not emailing you sooner! My schedule has been so busy since our trip. For example, we returned home on Sunday, I worked Monday and we had basketball games Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights! Its been kinda crazy. Please know that my negligence in no way indicates our experience with your chalet.



We had a wonderful time!!!! The chalet was just perfect!!! You never know how you will "fit in" with the housing. As soon as we got there, we all felt at home. It was so welcoming to find the fireplace on and the place nice and toasty when we arrived. We really expected it to be freezing cold inside especially since we arrived at about midnight. It was cozy and charming and just felt right! My sons are convinced that we should try and buy it - lol!!



We ate all but one meal "at home", which really made it feel like home even more. We had my oldest son's homemade waffles every morning! It was nice to just spend time there just hanging out together. We talked about what it would be like to be there during the fall and summer! You never know, I may be back in touch with you, lol.



Two mornings, we woke up to a thin blanket of snow outside. How beautiful it was! As you know, the location is perfect!! We took advantage of the free ski ticket for my youngest on Friday and skiied again Saturday. We also took a day trip to Cherokee. We just had so much fun!! As a mom, I know you appreciate the time we spent together as a family. It was such a blessing to me. The whole trip was one answer after another to prayers - from safe travel, perfect lodging, no injuries, wonderful bonding time, patient, positive attitudes, fun!, etc etc etc.



Leisa, thank you so much! We appreciate how you worked with us - especially with the changes to our travel dates! And thanks for returning our security deposit so quickly!! It has been a pleasure!!



God bless,

Linda

Rest in Peace !!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week at the sister property to the one shown here. We had an excellent time. The Chalet is very well maintained, cool and quiet. There are about six of these in a row back off the road and though they are close we were never disturbed. The location is perfect. You are close to Asheville, Cherokee, a quick trip to the tourist traps in Tennessee and miles and miles of very serene mountain drives.

If you need a shot of adrenalin, you can go to Deals Gap and drive the "Tail of the Dragon". It's 11 miles with 138 curves most hairpin. Then come back to Chalet for a quiet cocoa, coffee or chilled beverage and just mellow out.

We found lots of nice places to eat in Maggie and Waynesville and you can save a few bucks staying in and cooking. The Chalet kitchen had all the necessities to set up house.

We checked in on Sunday afternoon and the following Sunday when we pulled out we spent 8 hours driving home just talking about all we had done, how well rested were and what a great bang we had gotten for our buck.

Thanks Leisa !!!

The chalet was quaint, warm and welcoming. It had beautiful views as well as soothing sounds of nature. Leisa was wonderful to work with. Always prompt to respond and very accommodating. There was so much to see and do that we will have to go back again and again....and of course stay at "Chalet in the Valley"!

Cozy mountain hide away

  • 5 of 5

The lovely chalet was a beautiful surprise.

It is centrally located, close to the hustle and bustle of Maggie Valley, yet hidden away on easy accessible road just a few minutes from town. The cabin is very cozy and comfortable and you feel right at home. It is fully equipped with everything for long/short term use. The view of the mountains from front porch is exceptional and was enormously enjoyed by my husband and I.

There are lots of attractions and activities to enjoy, literally just minutes away from the cabin. Asheville,Cherokee ,Waynesville, Gatlinburg at arms length so to speak.

Our time went way to fast by, but we left with beautiful memories.

I can highly recommend the the chalet for the view, comfort and affordable price.

Thank you Leisa for sharing, we had a great time.
