Overview

Asheville Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This new, luxurious chalet is nestled at the edge of the Blue Ridge Parkway on a very quiet 1/2+ acre wooded property in the city limit. The location offers the convenience of a short drive to downtown Asheville and immediate access to the countryside.

You will be 3 min to a Blue Ridge Parkway access, less than 3 miles to I40, 5 min to downtown shops and restaurants via expressway 240, 4.1 miles to the Biltmore Estate, and walking distance to the fabulous Folk Art Center!

There is plenty of opportunity for hiking or biking on forest trails and on country roads without using your car...

In fact, the Mountain to Sea trail is right there and you could take a hike to the highest peak East of the Mississippi from your door step! Biking on the nearby country roads is also a treat; take a look for instance at the pastoral Warren Wilson College campus, just a healthy ride away.

The chalet is suitable for a couple (very comfortable queen size bed) and a loft can accommodate up to 2 children as needed. There is a fully equipped kitchen, full size bath, and private, covered deck. Our living space is non-smoking and we strive to make it as healthy and relaxing as we would like it to be for our own vacations. The hot water is solar heated, the paints are non VOC, and the woodwork is locally and custom made.

Equipment includes wireless internet access, 46' HD TV, CD, DVD, Blue-ray, MP3 and USB player.

The chalet has a washer and dryer for your convenience.

There is ample cabinetry and shelf space available and the kitchen is supplied with high quality appliances/utensils so that cooking is not just an option! Please, inquire by email if you'd like to view more pictures or if you have specific questions.

We also offer guests discount tickets for Biltmore Estate and for ultimate comfort we arrange for professional massage therapy on site. A sauna / tylarium is also available in the guest room. Please, inquire at time of reservation or a few days before arrival.

We trust you will enjoy quality time and appreciate the convenience of our chalet!

About Jean-Jacques

Swangit and Jean-Jacques, long time residents of Asheville. Enjoy nature, quiet, gardening and sunshine!

Jean-Jacques purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Jean-Jacques chose Asheville

We made this chalet available for vacation rental in 2010 after careful consideration for the ease of access to numerous touristic destinations.

The location is ideal for a vacation rental because of it's proximity to what Asheville has to offer as a vibrant, liveable, and diverse community and ease of access to year round fun and enjoyment in the surrounding area. One can't help but feel deeply touch by the natural beauty of this region...and you will be able to walk from the chalet to appreciate it!

What makes this chalet unique

Our craftsman chalet is unique in its construction and style which makes for something special for your visit. You will feel at home with both privacy and proximity to everything to make the most out of your stay in Asheville. You will find the chalet most welcoming and comfortable on your return from day trips.

Since we live next door, we are often available to help immediately if you need.

Being on this side of town, you will not be slowed down by heavy traffic, making your stay all the more relaxing.

The sauna is always available to guests and we will arrange for professional massage on site as well. You might also appreciate being a mile away from a Blue Ridge Pkwy access.

Wonderful Home Away

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is a perfect fit for a small family looking to get away. Walking distance to hiking trails and mountains, and just a short drive to Biltmore Estate and downtown. The chalet itself is very peaceful, and has all the furnishings to make it a quaint home away from home. The sauna and attached room are very relaxing. Highly recommend to small family's and romantic getaways!

Extremely Chilly and Wonderful Escape!

  • 5 of 5

First off - Jean-Jacques is fantastic. The house - incredible! You are no more than 15 minutes away from mostly everything that Asheville has to offer food downtown, hiking trails (from your doorstep), and of course the Biltmore mansion, and it doesn't feel like 15 minutes either. Who doesn't love traveling through the Great Smokey Mountains (we are beach dwellers) to get to your amazing vacation destination, accessibility was fantastic. Of course I should write how amazing the house was too. Immaculate to say the least. Everything was thought of, the kitchen had all of the utensils that you could think of...if you have been to a 'fully outfitted' house before you know that is not always the case, this house was truly outfitted. The bed is comfortable, the breakfast nook was so awesome for some early morning coffee, and the bathroom was fantastic! It even has a heated floor...come on who has that...what a treat! (O yeah it was 3 degrees outside when we were there, so floor heaters were awesome) Unfortunately for us, we did not stay long enough to take advantage of the sauna and the home visit massage, but if the house is any indication - it is probably amazing. I would recommend this highly for a romantic get away. Finally, it is pet friendly and you wouldn't be able to tell - people are very responsible with their animals, and the house doesn't feel like any of our four legged fury friends have stayed there before.

Thank you for the hospitality!

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We love the two nights we stayed at the chalet. Jean-Jacques keeps the place incredibly clean and tidy. The surrounding garden is incredible, and the BRP green-way is across the street. Perfect for couples and small families.

What a nice surprise!

  • 5 of 5

I really loved this cabin. My family (two adults, two kids) stayed here for one night between two far-apart destinations during a long trip, and it was truly restful, welcoming, and comfortable. The sauna is just right after a morning workout. Every little detail in the house is extremely well thought-out and planned; every appliance, device, fitting, fixture, what-have-you is beautiful and works very well. There was a funky and thoughtful collection of movies and music on hand for us to enjoy. I wish I'd stayed longer and done some cooking; the kitchen looked like I could have gone to town. Lots of utensils and dishes that one doesn't normally see in little rental places. I loved the smell of natural cleaning products -- the place was immaculate. Looking at all the thought that went into sustainability and low-impact living was entertaining and gave me some great ideas for my own home. Space is tight, but not cramped. It's efficient and fun. And beautiful.

A little piece of Heaven!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely beautiful. We were a little worried about the size, but WOW, what a fantastic floor plan. Everything in it was high end. The owner treated us the same way he built the chalet, with perfection.

You quickly realize how much pride Jean-Jacques and his wife the put into their chalet. I have never stayed at a cleaner or more well kept place. My wife and I normally get the 2 or 3 floor homes simply to feel more like home. This put the other places we have stayed to shame. It more than met our needs and more. We strongly recommend this to anyone!!!!!!!

Cozy and relaxing place in Asheville

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the chalet for 10 days in June, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Jean-Jacques is a very accommodating host. The chalet itself is on the small side, but it has a very efficient layout and we did not feel cramped by any means. The kitchen is well-stocked and comfortable to use (we cooked most of our meals). The sauna was a real treat, as was the extra space downstairs for yoga/exercise. All in all we thought this was a near-perfect place to stay for an Asheville vacation, and we will hopefully get a chance to stay there in the future.
