Overview

About the property

Family time or a romantic weekend with long range views and privacy.

Roaring Fork Chalet is named after the 200 ft. waterfall directly behind the chalet. In the winter you can hear the waterfalls and the relaxing effects are something only Mt Mitchell can bring to your soul. In the summer you can escape the heat and cool yourself off in the high mountains of the Great Smoky National Forest which borders the property line.

The chalet has a loft master bedroom with a locally grown and built red cedar king size log bed. In the mornings you wake up to a beautiful view of Mt. Mitchell and the huge valley below. Sip your coffee as the clean cool mountain air gently wakes you up.

Hike some of the local trails which are everywhere. Wade in the mountain creeks and rivers in the cool mountain water. Visit some of the most scenic waterfalls in the world as there are three very close to the chalet. Roaring Fork Falls, Setrock Falls and Crabtree Creek Falls are all less than ten minutes away. If you're up for a mountain hike you can hike from the chalet Roaring Fork Falls behind the chalet.

Come spend time in total peace and quiet away from your daily routine.

About Ron Mashburn

I live outside of Asheville, NC. I love to hike, ride mountain bikes, play with my chocolate lab Nellie and orange tabby BB, cook and enjoy entertain family and friends. I thoroughly enjoy talking about these old mountains and all they have to offer, so please don't hesitate to ask me any and all of your questions.

Ron Mashburn purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Ron Mashburn chose Blue Ridge Mountains

I bought this chalet in order to get away from it all. Getting back to nature, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and enjoying a round of golf every now and then was a priority.

What makes this chalet unique

I enjoy the peace and quite. The fresh air and there's always a gentle cool breeze blowing. Sitting on the front deck and looking at the peak of Mt Mitchell has always relaxed me as well as my family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best wishes,

Cozy homesite

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home, rustic, cabin decor. The beds are very comfy and you have everything to cook meals. Prepare to cook as not much in the area.... Take food and grab fire wood before you get to house. Well done, quiet and charming. Wifi yes, but zero cell for 20 miles. Easy hike to falls and four miles to BRP. Would recommend for a relaxing vacay.

Perfect mountain getaway. Quiet, beautiful view and a fire pit.

  • 5 of 5

Ron's property was the best getaway for my girlfriends birthday surprise . His chalet was perfect for cooking smores at the firepit, making steak dinners with every kitchen utensil you can imagine available, and within a short drive to many waterfalls and trails. The neighborhood is quiet and the view from the deck is amazing. The place was clean and homey and I would definitely stay again.

absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Huge kudos to Ron Mashburn for providing my friend and me with a truly fabulous NC mountain experience. Right from the beginning I felt that this property was special, and I was not mistaken.

I received a virtually instantaneous response to every single communication I sent to Ron prior to, during, and even after our stay. He was unfailingly warm, positive, and ready to help in any way. The directions to the home, and the instructions once we arrived, were organized and detailed. The chalet itself is utterly charming: spacious, impeccably clean & fresh, and truly beautiful. The level of thought and care that had been put into the smallest details (right down to night lights in the bathroom and at the stairs to the loft!) made us feel secure, comfortable, and very much at home. This is a lovely home that even smells wonderful! You can be very content simply staying put (with lots of room inside, as well as a peaceful, tranquil deck and a friendly fire-pit). Or, there are many things to do in the area, especially if you enjoy nature - starting with the not-to-be-missed Roaring Forks waterfall, which is conveniently close to the house and involves a completely non-strenuous half-mile stroll on an old logging road to the falls.

A couple of notes for prospective guests: 1) Despite what your GPS says, if you are coming from Asheville and, like us Floridians, are NOT used to driving winding, twisty steep mountain roads, the time it takes to come south to the chalet through Burnsville is absolutely the same - and far & away less nail-biting! - than the trip north via Marion. 2) The secondary road up to the chalet is steep and winding, but it's paved every bit of the way and isn't difficult (even for us flatlanders, who didn't feel the need to put the car into 2nd gear once - even in the rain!). 3) Not only were we unused to mountainous terrain, but (even more embarrassingly) we seem to be directionally challenged on occasion, and despite the very clear instructions it took a while to actually FIND the back door! Just in case any other visitors should be similarly disadvantaged, from the parking area walk to the LEFT end of the house and around the corner, and - voila. :))

Ron, many thanks again for all your assistance, for the serenity of your beautiful mountain paradise, and for being - so - NICE!

I definitely intend to come back.

Owner's Response: Jan is awesome! She is an excellent communicator and fun to host. She wanted to know a bit about the area and was eager to explore. And, I love talking about and sharing information about the beautiful chalet and Mt Mitchell/Burnsville area with my guests. I try to think of how I like things to look and feel while staying at a vacation home and I tailor the chalet for your comfort and safety. I'm glad to know that my efforts are appreciated. Thank you so much for your visit Jan and please hurry back! Cheers - Ron
