Charming chalet in historic Flat Rock

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

A quaint property to completely unplug.

A newly updated chalet nestled in a historic property minutes from Main Street Hendersonville, NC. Come enjoy privacy in the mountains while still being close to shops, restaurants, and mountain activities. This 1 bedroom, 1 bath chalet is cozy and accommodating. You have a full bathroom, kitchen, dining area, and a 400 sq. ft. deck to enjoy the mountain air and starry nights. The property holds a lot of history that can be seen in the stonework of the chalet and the original heart pine wood floors. The main house on the property was originally built around the mid 19th century by Reverend Charles Cotesworth Pinckney from Charleston, SC. It sold to Henry Middleton, who was close friends with Carl Sandburg. When the original house burned down in 1949 it was Sandburg who came to assist, signing every book that was saved from the blaze. This property has historical significance with owners having deep roots with founders of United States. A wonderful getaway for anyone who loves history and tranquility. This is a perfect getaway spot for 2 in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Wonderfully Charming Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a much needed break during New Years weekend. Absolutely loved the chalet. The bed was soooo comfortable! Charming...the Perfect get-away. Great location...only minutes from Hendersonville yet off the beaten path. Denise was so great and very helpful. I can see a trip there in our future..when it's warm and we can enjoy the huge deck overlooking a meadow. A definite 5 stars!

This is the best place for quiet rejuvenation! It is beautiful. If you need a place to clear your mind and quiet your spirit, this is it. It's also minutes from Hendersonville if you need something. Definitely a repeat destination!!

Quiet Solitude at This Historic Chalet

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two nights here for our anniversary, and it could not have been more perfect. We were in such a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. It was warm and inviting. We had a little trouble getting the internet to stream for Netflix or Amazon, but it was fine. We really didn't try to hard to connect. We were trying to "disconnect", so we really didn't need the television. (There is a nice, big TV there if you need one.) There are plenty of things to do and see in Flat Rock and the surrounding area. We also spent lots of time reading. The view from the large windows was beautiful. I loved waking up and seeing the mountains before I even got out of the bed. The kitchenette was perfect. We ate our breakfasts there. We had plenty of warm water for showers. Everything was so clean. We had some of the best food we have ever had on this trip. We ate at Flat Rock Wood Room (fabulous, award-winning bar-b-que) and Saluda Grade Cafe in Saluda, NC (order the Monte Cristo). Denise was wonderful to work with. She was always available for questions. She was very accommodating. We will definitely be back when the weather warms so that we can make use of the beautiful deck. We had a perfect weekend.

Charming mountain cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this charming little chalet! Cozy and cute, it was perfect for our romantic getaway! Absolutely loved the deck, we sat out there to enjoy the view during the day and stargaze at night. One thing I will say is that there is no cable and the WiFi can be slow, however that shouldn’t be a concern with so much to do between hiking, Hendersonville, and Asheville only a short drive away. Loved having the little kitchenette! Was great for keeping drinks and snacks cold, we even stayed in dinner to make dinner one night!
