Asheville Area Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Romantic 1BR/1.5BA - Be Spoiled w/Massage Chair, Hot Tub, King Bed, Jacuzzi Tub

A perfect romantic setting for your honeymoon or anniversary! Be outrageously spoiled by the wonderful amenities of the romantic Joy Chalet set at the edge of a 33 acre woodlands conveniently located at the south edge of Asheville. You'll be pleased by the elegant comfortable furnishings, luxury king bed with sumptuous bedding, soft towels, hot tub for 2 on a private covered screened back porch, Jacuzzi bath tub, awesome massage chair, a fully-equipped kitchen with quality cookware, outdoor gas grill, living room with gas log river stone fireplace on a 20' cathedral ceiling, movie library, WiFi & central heat & air! Lovingly furnished, the chalet is both beautiful & comfortable. Follow the woodlands path to a creek with a swing suspended from a tree.

INDULGE! You deserve to be spoiled at my vacation home! I am a caring local owner and answer all inquiries personally. I am available anytime to see to your needs. I make sure the home is exceptionally clean, well maintained & the hot tub sparkling with fresh water.



The luxurious, very comfortable couches and rich marble tables are quietly elegant and a perfect nest to watch your flat screen TV with simple-to-use built-in DVD. Choose from over 100 movies in our video library or watch cable TV. Better yet, it’s the ideal spot to just peacefully sit and unwind in front of the fire in the river stone gas log fireplace.


Your romantic upstairs king bedroom suite features a magnificent tapestry over a sumptuous Simmons king bed, 400 count cotton sheets, butter-soft blanket and elegant comforter. Lay in luxury while you watch your flat screen TV with a simple-to-use built-in DVD/VCR. A handsome dresser, chest of drawers and walk-in closet offer plenty of space for your clothes. And, best of all, an amazing Human Touch Technology Massage Chair will send you to heaven! It’s our favorite ultimate pleasure. A tasteful bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub/shower and sumptuously thick cotton towels complete the master suite. A perfect honeymoon nest!


Your delightful eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with all new everything! You have full size new appliances including stainless refrigerator with French doors & bottom freezer drawer, ceramic glass cook top with self-cleaning oven, dishwasher, microwave, and disposal. Enhance your meals by serving them on our festive hand painted dinnerware, heavy glasses and quality silverware. You’ll find sharp knives, a multitude of pots, pans, bake dishes, cookie sheets, cake pans, pizza pan, muffin pans, hand mixer, toaster, blender, waffle iron, coffeemaker and even a coffee grinder for your freshly brewed coffee. You’ll find a selection of spices and a few other goodies as well. Just off the kitchen is a full size washer and dryer as well as a pretty powder room half bath.


Just out the kitchen door is the wonderful screened, covered porch. Relax there in privacy in your 2-person spa hot tub ( privacy screens) or sip on a morning cup of coffee while you sit in the wicker chairs to view the woodlands back yard.

For the fun of it, there is a 1948 Scrabble board, a 1961 Monopoly game, a 1974 Easy Money game plus games such as chess, checkers, playing cards, Yahtzee, etc. In addition, there is a small selection of enjoyable paperback novels. With all the special touches, Joy Chalet feels like a warm, inviting home rather than a vacation rental house. Central air conditioning makes summers cool although seldom needed in these Blue Ridge Mountains.


I am a local owner who takes exquisite care of my homes and am available anytime to see to your needs. I make sure the home is exceptionally clean, well maintained & the hot tub sparkling with fresh water.

About Stephanie Joy Johnson

I am Stephanie Joy Johnson, owner and manager of my homes. My passion is creating beauty in real estate….remodeling and restoring homes, landscape design, interior home décor and, best of all, making guests feel pampered when they stay at my personally owned luxury vacation homes in the gorgeous mountains of Western North Carolina. I devote myself full-time to taking care of my homes & guests. YOU are my full-time business! My business is called Asheville Vacation Homes.

I began this business in 2004 and delight in finding beautiful locations and gorgeous homes for vacation rental settings. I am always searching for interesting furnishings (shopping!) to add to the delightful decor for my guests.

During your stay, you also might meet my awesome property manager and “fix-it man,” David. He can take care of any maintenance or property issues should they arise. He and I are both available 7-days-a-week to make sure your stay is the best ever!

Email me for my web address to see all 10 of my vacation homes. Take a virtual tour at AshevilleVacationHomes.

INDULGE! You deserve to be spoiled at my vacation home! I am a caring local owner and answer all inquiries personally.

Why Stephanie Joy Johnson chose Asheville Area

I am passionate about living in these awesome Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and adore sharing my vacation rental homes with guests who come to experience our area’s mountains & towns. I take exquisite care of my properties and am available anytime to see to your needs. I make sure each home is exceptionally clean, meticulously well-maintained and the hot tub sparkling with fresh water.

I have lived in Asheville, North Carolina for many years and find great joy in discovering more and more reasons why this is the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE! Asheville is consistently in the “Top 10 Places To Live” according to almost any criterion published! It’s a diverse multi-cultural blend of mountain folk and cosmopolitan society set in a dramatically beautiful mountain setting. It is my heart-felt desire to provide gorgeous welcoming homes in spectacular settings and to share this town with you!

What makes this chalet unique

With all the special touches, I promise you that my vacation rental homes will feel as though you are staying at a friend’s warm inviting home rather than a 'vacation rental house.' You'll appreciate the tasteful decor and thoughtful care my homes reflect. Each home has been lovingly remodeled, elegantly furnished, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully accessorized with special amenities to pamper you including massage chairs, hot tubs, high speed wireless Internet, king beds with sumptuous bedding, HDTV’s & DVD's, movie libraries, quality well-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, central heat & air conditioning, washers & dryers and much more!

Unique to my homes are all the amenities offered for babies and children. There are cribs, pack-n-plays, strollers, high chairs, baby bath tubs, stuffed animals & blankies. Older children love to play on the outdoor playgrounds with forts, slides, swings, climbing walls, etc. plus games, books, toys, kids DVD movies and more. Kids of all ages love to roast marshmallow at the firepits.

My homes are easily accessed, right in-town, close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. No winding mountain roads to get lost in or long drives to town. The homes are in peaceful, lush vacation spots where you can relax and feel at home.

Rather than dealing with a third party management company with limited business hours & knowledge of a home, you can deal directly with me, the owner. I am available to you 7 days-a-week, anytime between 9 AM and 7 PM and after hours for emergencies. I know my properties intimately because I have personally had them restored, remodeled, furnished and equipped. YOU are my full time business! Because I live locally, I am available whenever you call.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I enjoyed staying at the "Joy" Chalet so much. We took everything we thought we would need. Turns out all we need was our clothes. Everything we could have dreamed of needing was in the chalet. The attention to detail, from plastic wrap to the hair dryer was provided, it was absolutely amazing. The chalet is so beautiful. We appreciated the brochures of all the places to eat, the activities(and there is a lot to do) and maps. We will most definitely be back there. Stephanie is absolutely the nicest lady in ashville. She is very attentive to all your needs. So glad we chose ashville and the "Joy" Chalet.

Joy Chalet. A beautiful relaxing environment!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous home! We were so delighted that the Joy a Chalet was close to Asheville. We love the quiet neighborhood and the home is beautifully furnished with all that you need. We used the crock pot to make a pot roast which was awesome to come home to after a long day of hiking trails. The king sized bed was super comfy

And so we're all the lovely touches in the living room. We highly recommend staying in this home. We look forward to many more mountain trips. Thank you !! Tina and Bill

Excellent place!

  • 5 of 5

The joy chalet was a great place for our get away trip. The location is close enough to town to enjoy Asheville without any travel concerns while at the same time tucked away for moderate privacy. Great little back yard and a short trail, perfect for our dogs. The house is well maintained and well equipped. Bed was comfy. Added bonus was fireplace and hot tub. Recommend. We fully expect to stay here again.

Expectations Exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were extremely pleased with our stay at the Chalet. Everything was clean, neat, and in perfect working order. The cable and wi-fi service throughout the unit was good to have to keep in touch with friends and world events. And added touch was the labeling of the various light switches throughout unit so you knew exactly how to turn on the various lights both inside and out. Keep up the good work!
