High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Family time or a romantic weekend with views and privacy - Warm days cool nights

Roaring Fork Chalet is named after the 200 ft. waterfall directly behind the chalet. In the winter you can hear the waterfalls and the relaxing effects are something only Mt Mitchell can bring to your soul. In the summer you can escape the heat and cool yourself off in the high mountains of the Great Smoky National Forest which borders the property line.

The chalet has a loft master bedroom with a locally grown and built red cedar king size log bed. In the mornings you wake up to a beautiful view of Mt. Mitchell and the huge valley below. Sip your coffee as the clean cool mountain air gently wakes you up.

Hike some of the local trails which are everywhere. Wade in the mountain creeks and rivers in the cool mountain water. Visit some of the most scenic waterfalls in the world as there are three very close to the chalet. Roaring Fork Falls, Setrock Falls and Crabtree Creek Falls are all less than ten minutes away. If you're up for a mountain hike you can hike from the chalet Roaring Fork Falls behind the chalet.

Come spend time in total peace and quiet away from your daily routine.

About Ron Mashburn

I live outside of Asheville, NC. I love to hike, ride mountain bikes, play with my chocolate lab Nellie and orange tabby BB, cook and enjoy entertain family and friends. I thoroughly enjoy talking about these old mountains and all they have to offer, so please don't hesitate to ask me any and all of your questions.

Ron Mashburn purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Ron Mashburn chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

I bought this chalet in order to get away from it all. Getting back to nature, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and enjoying a round of golf every now and then was a priority.

What makes this chalet unique

I enjoy the peace and quite. The fresh air and there's always a gentle cool breeze blowing. Sitting on the front deck and looking at the peak of Mt Mitchell has always relaxed me as well as my family and friends.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for the four of us. We spent a lot of time at the fire pit and enjoying the amazing views of Mt. Mitchell. The snow on the ground was an added bonus for the views.

The cabin had everything we needed, and was quite comfortable.

We would definitely recommend a visit.

Rustic retreat

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a nice time with our dog at the chalet. A pretty location with lots of hiking options. The cabin itself is rustic with all of the necessary amenities. My boyfriend and also my cousin who visited for a day both said that it definitely seemed like a hunter's cabin, with the chosen decor and overall feel. The beds were nice and comfy. My only complaint is that the cabin wasn't as clean as I would have liked, cobwebs and dust were pretty abundant, the bathtub didn't seem super clean and I went to grab a saucepan lid and there was grease splatters all over it. Overall good experience though.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I apologize for the cobwebs and such and I have asked my cleaning service to do a deep cleaning now that it's slowed down a bit. Oct is by far our busiest month as we had only one day vacant. Combine that with one of the highest amount of rainfall for the month of Oct and the spiders must love the humidity. I do applaud the cleaning service for all of their hard work which includes much time away from their families on Saturdays and Sundays during our busiest month trying to assure your vacation is perfect. We'll do our best and double our efforts next Oct and hope to see you back next time. Happy Holidays and many blessings! Ron

Roaring fork chalet

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the chalet for 4 nights. The chalet was clean upon arrival and is tucked away nicely in the mountains. It had everything u needed and the location is the best part. We were about a 5 min drive to the blueridge parkway. We were both very pleased with our stay and we plan on coming back. Excellent value and excellent location if you want to get disconnected and enjoy nature this is the place to go. Only knock on the place is the WiFi being unreliable.

Lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a 4 day weekend and really enjoyed ourselves.

We cooked every meal while there, and ate them all on the deck. The deck has a lovely view, outdoor speakers, and plenty of space. We had amazing weather so we were lucky enough to spend the majority of our time outside.

Basically everything we needed in the kitchen was provided. The kitchen is small and a bit cramped while cooking, but 1 person can fit in there to cook. That's all we needed! Plus there's a dishwasher so that is very helpful! We used the grill on the deck to make a couple meals and that is quite handy. There were very few nearby choices for dining out, but we expected that and brought groceries. The trip to Marion is long due to winding roads (not mileage), but its not too bad if needed or wanted (we went for delicious ice cream!).

Access to the Parkway is quite close. We hiked at Craggie Gardens, Crabtree Falls, and Linville Falls, all off the Parkway. All were not too far for day trips and all are awesome. We also went to Roaring Fork Falls near the cabin and its lovely and secluded.

The neighbors ARE close. I assume this is often not an issue, as you can't really SEE them...but during our stay the neighbors were partying constantly and incredibly loud. This was a bit annoying, but not the chalet's fault in any way. It was Memorial weekend so I assume they were there to party (and possibly a rental also).

The Master bed is divine - so comfortable. We did not use the other room, but we love that we could invite friends here to join us in the future if we want. It would be fine for 4 people.

We brought our 2 dogs and they had a great time. They got to roam around outside, sleep in the sun on the deck, and go hiking with us. They were happy pups! Mainly they just came inside to sleep after exhausting days.

We did use the provided firepit and that is another great feature - we enjoyed that quite a bit.

We had absolutely no AT&T service (nowhere nearby), but the available wifi helped us be able to watch Netflix a couple times. Since we came here to get away, being a bit disconnected was lovely.

I would say that if you're looking for a small, rustic place to relax and be near hiking, this is the place for you. We'll definitely be back.

Great Mountain Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a cabin in the mountains and we got a cabin in the mountains! We chose this locations because we wanted to be close to the Mt. Mitchell golf course and Mt. Mitchell. We really enjoyed our time at the cabin. And enjoyed bringing our dog with us!

Peaceful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the chalet. The property had everything we needed and more. The view from the deck is beautiful and there are hiking spots starting right outside the cabin. We could not find a very direct route to the waterfall, but eventually found it and it was breathtaking! We will definitely come back!
