About Brea Gratia & David Robinson

I, David, discovered Asheville when I first met Brea. She was very interested in living in Asheville and after knowing her for one month, she invited me to visit Asheville with her for the New Year. Even during the winter, we were hiking, visiting the Biltmore Estate and enjoying many outdoor activities. Brea achieved her goal - I did fall for the beauty of Asheville. After Brea's success in renting her Chalet Quietude, it seemed like the best way to invest and have a connection to Asheville. It's hard to travel anywhere when Asheville is calling. Brea manages my property and is very personable; making sure she establishes a quick relationship with each of our guests.

Brea Gratia & David Robinson purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Brea Gratia & David Robinson chose Fairview

I wanted a property that was open with many windows, had great views and was located on a pristine mountain. When I first found the property, it needed some updating and TLC. After renovations, the Woodlands Chalet became a reality. One of the many reasons I fell for this property was the location and the forest. It is not far from downtown Asheville, yet located in a forest setting. The chalet is located at about 3400 feet altitude so summer's are cool and refreshing. It is a great place to sit on the deck and enjoy the sounds of nature.

What makes this chalet unique

The woods - the forest...hence the name Woodlands Chalet. Open dining room with forest views on two sides is a great dining experience. Relaxing or dining on the deck in spring, summer and fall is the very best way to enjoy the Woodlands Chalet. The view and serenity is priceless. Enjoying the view from inside or out is refreshing and relaxing. The drive into Asheville is easy as well as going to get groceries. The chalet is also perfect for two families because of the two distinct living areas which provides for privacy of each family.

We really enjoyed the feeling of being up on the mountain in the trees with all the big windows and deck. The stars over the hot tub were also a highlight. Cozy and comfortable retreat! Very helpful owner with lots of communication and support.

comfortable chalet

  • 5 of 5

This chatlet was the perfect choice for my family to enjoy a comfortable winter get away. The house was so clean and well cared for that it was easy to settle in. We enjoyed the hot tub in -5 degree weather and loved the view of the winter mountains. It is a very steep drive up, so when the flurries began we just hunkered down. The owner were very easy to communicate with and addressed anything we needed. Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Meghann. It was our pleasure to have you, Jim and your sons stay with us for your winter vacation. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to have you and your family join us again - perhaps in the summer when you can take the boys to Sliding Rock and a great swim in many of the swimming holes around the area. Oh, YES, that hot tub is a true delight when it is really cold outside....frozen hair and all!!! Talk soon - Brea & David

Beautiful place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Our small group works in corporate event planning and from our perspective, Brea provides the best rental experience. She manages/owns a few properties and offered up another, more expensive one at no extra charge when it was determined this one would not be ready in time for our stay (it was receiving repairs). The property was up a winding, gravel mountain road and if we had planned our trip one weekend later, we would have had to cancel due to weather conditions so be sure to get the travel insurance. The cottage was wonderful and we had everything we needed. The one in Fairview is a solid half hour + to downtown Asheville but was perfect for us. Thank you for making the 40th birthday weekend memorable!

Owner's Response: Ashley - thank you so much. What a fluke experience. We do not usually have another property to make such a switch. The Woodlands had been severely damaged by Hurricane Irma Winds (who'd a thunk) and it took much longer to get it ready. You were supposed to be our first guest since the damage. We appreciate your kind understanding to make the move. Charmed Cottage (where you stayed) is 17 miles to downtown and the Woodlands Chalet is still in Fairview, yet 13 miles to downtown and about a 15-20 minute drive. You are correct about the next weekend (11-13 inches of snow) and luckily, our guests that weekend had travel insurance. We are so happy you had a great stay and that Charmed Cottage was perfect for you and the others. We certainly hope you come again - the Woodlands is up and running now. Our first guests since September are in and enjoying their stay. Please stay in touch! Brea & David

Magical, cozy mountain retreat with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

What an idyllic mountain getaway. Not only was our stay at the Woodlands Chalet marvelous, but Brea, the host, was generous, helpful, and communicative before, during, and after our stay. (She and David even sent a lovely postcard to our home a few days before to help fuel our excitement!) We were a group of friends in town for a wedding, and while the Chalet is 25 minutes away (and up a pretty steep drive) from Asheville, it was nice to feel like we had a quiet retreat in an otherwise busy weekend. Thanks!

Lovely house nestled in the woods

  • 4 of 5

This house was just as lovely as the pictures. We spent hours relaxing on the back deck and in the hot tub, with its spectacular view.

Owner's Response: Tamar - thank you so much for your review. It mean so much to us for our guests to take the time to let others know how they enjoyed our property. You were here during August and we have had a most spectacular season of cool weather for a typical hot month for most in the country. Sitting on the deck in this weather with the lush canopy makes it even better. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to hear from you again. Brea & David
