Asheville chalet description

Picture yourself sitting in the hot tub surrounded by the most refreshing forest. Take a deep breath, relax and find your city life and stress ease away. Or, you're having a glass of wine on the deck feeling renewed and be inspired to call friends at home to tell them you will not be returning. Seriously, you don't want it to end wishing you had more time.

Chalet Quietude is a quiet place in the tranquil forest of the Smokey/Blue Ridge Mountains on 3 acres with two views. The surrounding land is vacant & undeveloped which adds to the privacy & quietude. It's an easy drive (15 minutes) to and from Asheville, North Carolina - 12 miles. Directions to the cabin are simple.

The grounds are gently landscaped so as not to intrude on nature. Chalet Quietude is so close to Asheville, you never really sense you are leaving town. Yet, it is just far enough to be away from the city, in the mountains, and close enough for you to be in the middle of all the festivals and fun in just moments.

Driving to the Blue Ridge Parkway (10 minutes), the Biltmore (20 minutes) or any other activity is easy. You will always feel you are in the center of activity, yet when you want to escape, Chalet Quietude is waiting for you, peacefully. It has become a romantic get-away for many couples celebrating an anniversary, engagement and/or birthday. A family retreat is also a popular reason to stay at Chalet Quietude.

The chalet-styled cabin is comfortable and cozy, newly renovated and decorated for your comfort. Plenty of windows to view the natural beauty of the surrounding forest. A wood burning fireplace sits proudly in the living area ready to create the beauty and warmth for your winter vacation with us.

The furnishings were chosen to provide the utmost in comfort & relaxation. The pillow-top mattresses, bed sheets & pillows are luxurious & white for cleanliness. 3 bedrooms with king, queen & a twin bed over full bed (bunk bed) sleeps 7 comfortably.

The kitchen is arranged for family cooking & conversation with a dining counter built around the cook top. We permit smoking outside only & cannot permit pets even though we love them. Children are welcome with your respectful guidance.

We have 3 flat panel TVs with DirecTv satellite & wireless internet, a washer/dryer, hair dryer, robes, and more.

Our hot tub is in the best possible place to relax with the surrounding forest. Sunsets & soaking in the hot tub is the perfect end to a day of adventure & fun.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: In 2000 I had plans to move to Asheville from Houston. Events in my life changed those plans. My draw to Asheville did not change. I continued to think about living there, but knew that with my business in Houston, that I could not leave. It was suggested that I purchase a home and spend a lot of time in Asheville. That sounded good to me. So in 2006 I purchased my chalet. As I thought about it sitting empty for long periods of time, I decided it was better to share it. At that time, I did not know the term 'vacation rental'. I did some investigating and found out how to do it. I also found that I loved sharing my beautiful chalet with others.

                      Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                      I love Asheville. It brings joy to my heart to be in the mountains. Asheville has everything and the best part is that nothing is extreme. The weather is not extreme, the mountains are not extreme. It is gentle, inviting and there is plenty of variety in things to do here. You can hike (my favorite), fish, golf, shop, eat, sight-see, go on adventures, see wildlife, swim, be a kid again at Sliding Rock, ride your motorcycle on the Blue Ridge and on and on.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      I love staying at Chalet Quietude. It is cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. Butterflies and humming birds love it there too. The location is beautiful and the mountain is covered with forest. Driving up to the chalet in summer, you wonder where the other home are. It is so close to town, yet just far enough away. I named it Chalet Quietude because it is so quiet here. The day I purchased it, I could hear nothing - not a mower, not a dog, not a siren, no traffic - NOTHING...just the QUIETUDE. The quietude surrounds you and you just might forget you have a home to return to! That's how I feel - 'It is the life' and when I am there, I don't want to go home.
