About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths

Ideal for 3 couples or small family groups of up to 8 guests and two pets, Asheville Lookout Chalet is located ten miles west of the village of Black Mountain and ten miles east of downtown Asheville; an ideal central location for many of the area activities, including visiting the gorgeous Biltmore Estate. Situated on fifteen family owned wooded acres at an altitude of 2550 feet, the Chalet overlooks a quaint church and horse farm in the Bee Tree Valley below.

First Floor En Suite Master Bedroom 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
Second Floor open Loft over looking Great Room with Full size Futon (sleep sofa)

The Great Room has a gas log fireplace and a view of Watch Knob mountain 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. The Hot Tub is located in the multi-windowed sun porch, accessible from the patio or through the Master bath.

A Smart TV with ATT U-Verse Cable service is located in the Great Room. Program in your personal Netflix or Hulu Plus accounts to view your favorite shows and movies. Two additional TVs are located in the Master and West bedrooms. The Chalet has WIFI, so bring your personal laptop or tablet or use the Loft computer to check your 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, but 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. This is a large, well stocked store with an exceptional selection of products, including beer and wine. They also have a full service pharmacy, 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, the Veranda Cafe and Las Cuezelas. For amazing bar-b-que, you shouldn't miss Okie Dokies Smokehouse located on Old 70 in Swannanoa. Athen's Pizza (also in Swannanoa) has excellent sit-down or take-out. Start your morning with a visit to the Dripolator Coffeehouse on State Street in Black Mountain for some great coffee and baked goods.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We live in Northern Virginia outside of Washington, DC. We have been vacationing in the Asheville area for over 30 years and enjoy the many activities it offers, and look forward to eventually retiring to the Smoky Mountains.

Why the Owner Chose Swannanoa, NC, USA:
We built the Chalet in 2005 on acreage adjoining 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 venues offered by Black Mountain and Asheville. Our staff, Lee and Holly, have been taking care of the Chalet since it was built, and they help us ensure that the Chalet is a comfortable and welcoming home away from home for our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Asheville Lookout Chalet has a private, away from it all atmosphere while being within easy driving distance of many of the area attractions and amenities. Guests can enjoy the peace and quiet of time spent on the mountain in their own company, or as a home-base location convenient to Black Mountain and Asheville, white water rafting on the French Broad River, hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway and exploring the Pisgah National Forest .
