About Karen Armel
Our family rented a variety of homes in the mountains of western NC over the years. We loved staying in vacation rentals, so when we found Pine Shadows Chalet and fell in love with it in 2003, we took the plunge into second home ownership. After a year we decided to share our wonderful vacation home with other families. It has worked out fabulously, and the people who have stayed have been top-notch! For twenty years, I was professor of fine arts and humanities at Florida State College in Jacksonville, FL. My spouse is a retired journalist of The Associated Press and has recently published his first novel. So the chalet has a full library of books and music and is decorated with an artist's touch. Come enjoy our wonderful place.

What makes this Chalet unique
We instantly loved Pine Shadows Chalet because of its surrounding pastoral beauty. We liked that the home was at the top of a private road and off the beaten track yet in close proximity to the attractions and shopping in Hendersonville and Asheville. The house was custom-built in 1981 with a 25' apex in the living room at the top of the 5000-brick fireplace. We loved the many angles of the walls and roof lines, the interior brick walls, the natural oak doors, and the many upgrades too numerous to list. We were instantly drawn to the gorgeous westerly view from the living room-dining room, all the natural light, and the 'good karma' of the chalet. The owner/builders lived at Pine Shadows Chalet from 1981 - 2003. We are the home's lucky second owners.

OUR STAY WAS RELAXING IT FELT LIKE A REAL HOME ENJOYED THE COMFORT. THE VIEWS EVERYTHING WAS AT OUR DISPOSAL. ENJOYED THE FIREPLACE. HAD EVERYTHING WE NEEDED FOR A THANKSGIVING DINNER. WISH TO RETURN FOR A LONGER STAY NEXT TIME
We loved out stay at Pine Shadows! Nice get away from the horse show.
We had a wonderful stay and were able to bring our 2 dogs , which was great since we had to evacuate from hurricane Irma.
We are so happy to have been able to provide shelter from the hurricane to these dear people. They were outstanding guests and our communication remained excellent throughout their stay.
couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. me and my girlfriend were extremely happy with the house. Private, secluded, great views off the deck. Close to places if you want to go out and about. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend. we will be back.
Second stay here and loved it!
This was our second stay here and we loved it. We escaped the heat at home and enjoyed our time on the deck, sitting in the tree tops. We love that we can bring our dogs! Thanks so much!
We're so very happy that your second stay was enjoyable. Pets are family members, too. We are delighted to host them as well as you.
close to Tryon
we found this place to be perfect for our show show team! Close to the show grounds and grocery store.
