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, 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 6 comfortably. We have a full bath including a bathtub/shower on the main floor and in the loft we have a full bath with shower only.
The kitchen is arranged for family cooking & conversation with a dining counter built around the cook top. We do permit smoking indoors & 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.

About Brea Gratia & David Robinson
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.
Brea Gratia & David Robinson purchased this Chalet in 2006
Why Brea Gratia & David Robinson chose Fairview
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.
What makes this Chalet unique
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.

Wonderful, quiet and peaceful place.
Most comfortable bed I’ve slept in outside my own home. A beautiful, quiet & peaceful place. If you want to enjoy bird song and good sleep this is the place for you!
Don't hesitate booking the Chalet Quietude!!!
We recently booked the Chalet Quietude and found it to be the perfect headquarters for our long weekend in Asheville! There were a total of four of us (two couples) and we had more than enough room to spread out without feeling like we were on top of each other. Having two full bathrooms was a huge plus. The interior was decorated very well and the entire unit was clean and well maintained while the kitchen was stocked with all of the essentials. The beds in the bedrooms were very nice and we all got great sleep in the cool mountain air. Speaking of cool mountain air -- if you are looking for an authentic mountain retreat -- look no further than the CQ! You are literally on top of the mountain here. It's amazing. We used Lyft to pick us up 2 times -- 1st time the driver had no trouble getting to us and the 2nd time the driver got a bit lost but he eventually figured it out. The huge deck outside was a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the mountain views! The hot tub was a little disappointing as it seems to be older and rather small. It was okay for 1 or 2 people at a time but don't plan on sharing it with any more than that. Brea, our host, was extremely thorough and gracious and responded quickly to any questions we had. Overall, don't hesitate to book the CQ! You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!
Beautiful the pictures doesn’t do the view justice
We had a wonderful weekend away with our family in this beautiful cabin (inside and out). The accommodations were clean and modern. The drive to the cabin was such a fun experience with wild turkeys running beside us as if they were welcoming us to the mountain top. While sitting on the deck we could hear only nature at its best with the birds chirping and ground squirrels rustling in the leaves. The stars were brilliant looking while relaxing in the hot tub. The cabin is also a short distance from Asheville and not too far from Chimney Rock. Thank you for a relaxing weekend!
Thank you Debra - we appreciate you and loved having you as a guest. Those turkeys are pretty awesome to see - not something we see in the cities. I'll bet there were some deer around somewhere too! The birds singing in the forest is something from which I also derive great joy - especially now that we live in the area. We were enjoying them this morning in fact. I can tell from your writing that mountain life suited you well. I hope you come again for more of the relaxation and hopefully spend a little more time. Thanks for staying at Chalet Quietude and hope to hear from you again. Brea
Great girls getaway
The cabin was perfect for our group of girls. Beds comfy, cozy living room, nicely decorated. Wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed more of the amenities and the scenery.
Laurel - we appreciate the time you took to write a lovely review. We appreciate that you enjoyed the comforts of Chalet Quietude. We also wish you could have stayed longer. Our beautiful forest will be in full bloom soon and you won't believe just how lush it is. We hope you can come again and enjoy the seasonal changes. We loved having you and the girls. Thanks so much for your kind words. Brea
Private mountain retreat
If you value being "in the mountains" in a comfortable, private setting, we highly recommend Chalet Quietude. The listing description is very accurate, with no other houses in sight except for a few visible in the far distance on the other side of the valley. No noises or traffic to disturb your sleep, and your hot tub experience will be very private. The drive into Asheville is 20 minutes. The house is well maintained and comfortable. The owner was very attentive and helpful.
Thanks Tony. You are appreciated for taking the time to write and for such kind words. We are happy you had a great stay and that you loved how quiet and private Chalet Quietude is - hence the name! We hope to hear from you again and soon!
Great place to stay if your looking for a secluded spot. Still very close to downtown and the Biltmore. I wouldn’t look for uber to come get you here though. Very steep on that last 2 miles.
We enjoyed our stay.
Thanks so much Shannon. So glad you enjoyed your stay and found it convenient to downtown and the Biltmore. Driving up the mountain is really not difficult. I know "first-timers" will comment on it from time to time....especially "flat-landers". We are from Houston (can't get much flatter than that). Some will ask if a 4-WD vehicle is needed and the answer is no. The roads are paved all the way to the chalet. We do have guests who use Uber and it must depend on the driver and familiarity with mountain driving. Sounds you had Uber driver that was new to the area. Thanks again - hope to have you come stay many more times. Brea
