About Brea Gratia

I, David, discovered Asheville when I first met Brea. She was very interested in living in Asheville and after knowing her for one month, she invited me to visit Asheville with her for the New Year. Even during the winter, we were hiking, visiting the Biltmore Estate and enjoying many outdoor activities. Brea achieved her goal - I did fall for the beauty of Asheville. After Brea's success in renting her Chalet Quietude, it seemed like the best way to invest and have a connection to Asheville. It's hard to travel anywhere when Asheville is calling. Brea manages my property and is very personable; making sure she establishes a quick relationship with each of our guests.

Brea Gratia purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Brea Gratia chose Asheville Area

I wanted a property that was open with many windows, had great views and was located on a pristine mountain. When I first found the property, it needed some updating and TLC. After renovations, the Woodlands Chalet became a reality. One of the many reasons I fell for this property was the location and the forest. It is not far from downtown Asheville, yet located in a forest setting. The chalet is located at about 3400 feet altitude so summer's are cool and refreshing. It is a great place to sit on the deck and enjoy the sounds of nature.

What makes this chalet unique

The woods - the forest...hence the name Woodlands Chalet. Open dining room with forest views on two sides is a great dining experience. Relaxing or dining on the deck in spring, summer and fall is the very best way to enjoy the Woodlands Chalet. The view and serenity is priceless. Enjoying the view from inside or out is refreshing and relaxing. The drive into Asheville is easy as well as going to get groceries. The chalet is also perfect for two families because of the two distinct living areas which provides for privacy of each family.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

The little cabin built into the hillside was the perfect retreat for our girls weekend. There were six of us and we had more than enough room. Remote and quiet, with fairly easy access to the town. Be mindful of the windy/steep road that takes you to this hidden gem. The hot tub on the deck with the gorgeous view was the highlight!

Owner's Response: Robin Thanks so much for your review. You have been one of our favorite guests. We're so glad you enjoyed the views and hot tub - they go well together and under the stars is even better. The roads are windy and in places steep, especially to "flatlanders"....we hear that on occasion. Yet, after a day, you surely get used to them. The roads, the altitude and scenery all make it the best place to visit. Thanks again - we look forward to your next visit. Brea & David

Owner's Response: Jennifer, it was great to meet you and some of your sweet family. Being from Florida, you surely must have enjoyed the mountains. So sorry you missed the snow event - we received about 8-10 inches of snow on the mountain. Your children would have really enjoyed making snowmen and throwing snowballs. David and I look forward to hearing from you again - SOON. Thanks so much for coming! David and Brea

Woodlands Chalet for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Ideal experience that met and surpassed expectations. Totally and professionally handled from beginning to end. We even left a briefcase by accident, and it was returned to us OVERNIGHT by the owner! Five star all the way.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jim and Clay - you were our ideal guests. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. When we found that someone had left a very important briefcase with computer, etc, we were so happy to return it for you. Also, I've never had a guest bring a gift - that was AMAZING - thanks for being so thoughtful. We hope to hear from you again. Brea & David

a Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I had a terrific time at Brea and David's Woodland Chalet,... it just couldn't have been any nicer !We used it as our home base for 4 nights while visiting the Asheville area, and we would have happily stayed longer if it had not already been booked. The house and decor are lovely, the deck and hot tub are pure heaven, and we made sure that we took time to enjoy it all! I'd certainly recommend this place to anyone, we'd love to go back!

Nice treehouse. Liked the privacy.

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was nicely decorated. Renters need to know that the driveway is steep and you have limited space to turn vehicle around to go back out. We had an SUV and it was challenging.

Owner's Response: Arlean - thank you for your review. We are always happy when our guests take time to write. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and that you liked the way the Woodlands is decorated. It's unfortunate that the driveway proved to be difficult for you. We rarely hear about the driveway as many people utilize a three-point turn and that proves to make it easy for pick-up trucks and SUVS. We do suggest backing down the secondary driveway with instructions about that in the "Access Letter" we send out prior to our guest’s arrival. Thank you again. We hope to hear from you in the future. David and Brea

Quiet, secluded house

  • 4 of 5

This home is a lovely three story cabin in the woods with a view of the mountains. The master bedroom and bath are on the main floor with the living area, dining area and kitchen. Downstairs is a second living area, bedroom, and bath making this ideal for two couples. There are also beds in a third floor loft - making the whole place ideal for a family. It is about 30 minutes from Asheville. There are some odd things; guests can walk down the street but not up; you need to bring your own bath soap. It does though seem well suited for people who want to spent a quiet weekend in the mountains.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write a review of the Woodlands Chalet. We are happy you felt it was comfortable for couples and families. The layout/floorplan is ideal for that. We find the drive into town is around 20 minutes, yet I understand being new to mountain terrain may take a little longer - up to 30 minutes as you mentioned.You also mentioned that not walking "up" the road was an odd request. People who live on our road beyond our property (up the road) are situated at the road level and I hope you can understand we are trying to protect their privacy. We do suggest walking down the road and even give directions for the fabulous hiking trail off the main road which many of our guests enjoy. We do provide hand soap, kitchen detergents, laundry detergent and other amenities - just not personal items such as bath soap and shampoo/conditioner. We look forward to hearing from you again in the months and years to come. Brea & David
