About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Please CC me your request via email because I don't always get nitified of a request from this site (especially if you need immediate response). COME IN, TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND PULL UP A SEAT ON THE DECK OVER-LOOKING THE MOST SERENE LAKE IN WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA (MY OPINION) AND SIP YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE.

PLEASE NOTE: If you Google Earth the address of the house, it will show the lake as 2/3 empty. 2 years ago we had a crack in the dam and had to empty the lake to repair it. It just happened to be the time Google took the picture!!! I promise, there is plenty of water in the lake!

NO POLYESTER IN THESE SHEETS! JUST BRING YOUR TOOTHBRUSH AND A CHANGE OF CLOTHES AND YOU ARE ALL SET. FORGOT SHAMPOO? IT'S THERE. FORGOT YOUR RAZOR? IT'S THERE. FORGOT YOUR GOLF CLUBS? CAN'T HELP YOU, SORRY.

GOLF!!!!!! THREE BEAUTIFUL GOLF COURSES WITHIN 3-5 MINUTES OF THE HOUSE. WATERFALLS, TENNIS, HIKING, TUBING, BIKING AND MORE. ONE STATE PARK AND ONE NATIONAL FOREST WITHIN 15 MINUTES OF THE HOUSE!

THIS HOME IS 15 MINUTES FROM QUAINT DOWNTOWN HENDERSONVILLE AND BREVARD (MUSIC CENTER). ONE HOUR FROM GREENVILLE AND ONE HOUR FROM HIGHLANDS.

REMEMBER, THIS IS A LAKE HOUSE, NOT THE BILTMORE. IF YOU WANT MARBLE, GRANITE, AND VENETIAN PLASTER, YOU ARE IN THE WRONG NECK OF THE WOODS, LITERALLY!

About Karen Donnelly

HI

MY NAME IS KAREN AND I LIVE IN SOUTH FLORIDA WHEN I AM NOT IN THE MOUNTAINS ENJOYING ALL THE AREA HAS TO OFFER. I AM A REALTOR AND A TENNIS PRO (THOUGH IT HURTS MORE AND MORE EVERYDAY). I HAVE 2 GROWN SONS AND I WORK ALL THE TIME! THAT IS WHY I LOVE TO GET AWAY TO HENDERSONVILLE AND ENJOY THE OUTDOORS.

Karen Donnelly purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Karen Donnelly chose Smoky Mountains

LOVE EVERYTHING THE MOUNTAINS HAVE TO OFFER.

What makes this chalet unique

THIS HOUSE IS SITUATED ON A SMALL SWIMMING/FISHING LAKE. THE BEAUTY OF IT IS THE VIEW! YOU CAN ALSO SEE ALMOST ALL THE WAY AROUND THE LAKE IF YOU NEED TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE CHILDREN BECAUSE MY HOUSE SITS UP HIGH. THERE IS A ROAD THAT GOES AROUND THE LAKE FOR WALKING AND IT IS JUST SUCH A HAPPY PLACE AND I HAVE THE BEST NEIGHBORS!!!!

It was a great weekend. Lots of things to do in Asheville and Brevard. The Pisgah national forest is a must see. Great place for a relaxing vacation.

beautiful pond view

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Willow Lake. We ate many meals on the deck looking out to the pond and waiting for the sun set. The accomodations were nice and the house is well stocked. The ride to Hendersonville is about 20 minutes which was a nice blend of conveniense with the quiet of being at the edge of the mountains.

Minor problem with trash pickup, but assume that was a one time mix up.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Super Great Stay!!! The owner has everything covered that you might need. Four motorcycle guys enjoyed our visit to the mountains. We cooked out on the deck every night........... Ran out of propane gas for the grill but the owner had a back up tank full and ready to go. Now that's being prepared!!

Good Job on Everything!!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we vacationed at Willow Lake through VRBO and the first time staying in this house. We love the beauty of this location and its close proximity to downtown Hendersonville and Asheville.

Our favorite times at the house were spent on the deck, which overlooks the lake. On the deck is a fabulous reclining swing, adirondack chairs, a bistro set which seats 4 and a gas grill. We also enjoyed the private dock and even caught a few fish, which we threw back for the next visitors to catch.

Thank you to the owner and caretaker for their availability. We had everything that we needed during our stay. We had a great time and hope to visit, again.

Perfect spot - in between and close to so many things!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very spur of the moment trip for us, and the owner and neighbor were SO accommodating for us on such short notice. I loved the location, so close to Brevard, Hendersonville, Flat Rock, and Asheville, it was perfect. I admit, we spent most our time in the Du Pont State forest (GREAT mountain biking!!), but we hiked a couple places in Pisgah and some trips into nearby towns. This place was a perfect location to do all that, and the cabin itself was very well equipped with everything we needed, and very comfortable. The deck was great and the lake was fun to walk around and my sons even fished and enjoyed that.
