Property description

Ideal for two to four couples or small family groups of up to 8 guests, our pet friendly Asheville Lookout Chalet is located at an altitude of 2550 feet on 15 wooded acres in the mountains above the town of Swannanoa, 10 miles east of downtown Asheville and 10 miles west of the Village of Black Mountain.

First Floor EnSuite Master Bedroom and Bath with King Bed, TV and entrance to Hot Tub
Second Floor East Bedroom with King Bed and Single Bed in the open Loft above
Second Floor West Bedroom with Queen Bed, TV, Baby Crib and Private Deck

The Great Room has a gas log fireplace and a southern view through the 16 foot sliding glass doors and large clerestory windows. The Kitchen has a full complement of cookware and cutlery, large and small appliances, two china services, glassware and table linens. The Dining table has seating for 8 guests. The deck spans the length of the entire house with a gas grill, café table set and lots of chairs. On the adjoining stone patio is a picnic table for outdoor dining. When evening falls, roast a few marshmallows in the fire pit, or relax in the 6 person hot tub in the privacy of the Sun Porch.

A Smart TV with ATT U-Verse Cable service is located in the Great Room. To stay connected while on vacation, the Chalet has WIFI, so bring your personal laptop or tablet. The Loft computer is available to check your web-based email or look up a great restaurant downtown via the internet.

Answers to Frequent Questions: Asheville Lookout Chalet is 3 miles from Warren Wilson College and within 10 miles of Montreat, Lake Eden, the Ridgecrest Conference Center, Rockmont, Timberlake, MerriMac, and the Billy Graham Conference Center
Pet owners are welcome to hike around the upper part of the property using the trail adjoining the driveway. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is not required to reach Asheville Lookout for most of the year; may be necessary for winter rentals. Security resident on-site, housekeeper and maintenance available.

Shopping and Restaurants: The nearest grocery store is Ingles Market on Route 70, 4 miles from the Chalet. They have a full service pharmacy, movie rentals, extended shopping hours, self-checkout, and accept major credit cards. Black Mountain (10 miles) has many wonderful restaurants; we can personally recommend the Black Mountain Bistro, My Father's Pizza, Veranda Cafe and Las Quezelas. For those who like atmosphere with their coffee, visit the Dripolator Coffeehouse on State Street.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Bob and Lorna live outside of Washington, DC where Bob works for a government contractor and Lorna is an IT Specialist with Prince William County Schools. We have been vacationing in the Asheville area for over 25 years and enjoy the many activities it offers, and look forward to eventually retiring to the Smoky Mountains.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain:
We built the Chalet in 2005 on acreage adjoining our other family owned property (Brett's Falling Waters Cabin). We love the tranquility and privacy of our vacation home, as well as it's closeness to shopping, restaurants, and the entertainment offered by Black Mountain and Asheville. We hope that our guests enjoy and appreciate our home and the care that we and our staff take to keep it comfortable and welcoming!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Asheville Lookout Chalet has a private, away from it all atmosphere while being within easy driving distance of downtown Asheville and its attractions and amenities. Guests can enjoy the peace and quiet of time spent on the mountain, or as a convenient location for white water rafting on the French Broad River, hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway and exploring the Pisgah National Forest .
