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, a full service pharmacy, extended shopping hours, self-checkout, and accepts major credit cards. Black Mountain (10 miles) has many wonderful restaurants; we personally recommend the Black Mountain Bistro, Veranda Cafe and the Dripolator Coffeehouse on State Street. For amazing and affordable barbeque (eat-in or takeout), visit Okie Dokies Smokehouse located on Old 70 in Swannanoa.

About Bob and Lorna
We live in Northern Virginia outside of Washington, DC. We have been vacationing in the Asheville area for over 35 years, first with our children (all grown) and then with other friends and family. We enjoy the mountains and the contrast Asheville offers us to our home and other vacation choices -- diving in the Caribbean or soaking up the sun in Arizona.
Bob and Lorna purchased this House in 2005
Why Bob and Lorna chose Buncombe County
We built the Chalet in 2005 on our family owned property as we wanted something larger for our friends and family guests than our little rustic cabin (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 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.
What makes this House unique
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 the music and art festivals of Black Mountain and Asheville, white water rafting on the French Broad River, driving and hiking the Blue Ridge Parkway and exploring the Pisgah National Forest.

Great amenities. Very clean. Nice upgrades
We stayed with our family and in-laws for our daughter's wedding in Asheville. It was a terrific place and offers a well outfitted kitchen and the heated floors we very nice on the cool mornings! We will definitely consider this option in the future...for a more relaxing set of days sitting on the porch!
Perfect quiet getaway
This house is beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed for a quiet weekend away. The owners were communicative and flexible and helped make the place perfect for us and our little one. Thank you so much! We will definitely be back!
This was a great place to stay if you're okay being a little further out from Asheville. The house was great and everything was provided. The back deck is fantastic. We really enjoyed the stay.
Great house with a Great View!
Overall our stay was great. The view was unbeatable. The open living room/kitchen made hanging out at the house fun. We unfortunately got caught in the middle of an Ice storm which made driving up and down the road to the house a little sporty.
Loved this Chalet !!!!
We could not have been happier with our stay at Asheville Lookout Chalet!!! The location was super convenient to Asheville, the Biltmore, hiking and mountain biking. The views were simply amazing from this home. Inside, we were so happy to enjoy the warm open family room with fireplace and kitchen. Everything - the kitchen, the bedrooms, and the bathrooms were up to date and super super clean. The hot tub and outside large deck were a nice addition to our experience. Thank you Bob and Lorna for sharing your beautiful home with our family!!!
