Property description

VIEWS, PRIVACY, CONVENIENCE, EASY ACCESS, HOT TUB, and an AMAZING DECK!!!

The Asheville Country Chalet is unquestionably one of the most unique vacation rentals in the area!


The custom-built Passive Solar home was designed for both comfort and entertaining. It has generously sized rooms, amazing views, and seemingly endless areas to gather… or to enjoy a little solitude and tranquility.

Designed as a Swiss Chalet, updates have maintained the original character and rustic elegance while adding modern conveniences.

The Chalet is offered with 3 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms. Queen beds in all Bedrooms.

If you need an additional Bedroom/Bathroom, see VRBO Listing #436612

MAIN LEVEL:
• 3 Bedrooms w/closets, dressers, and light-blocking curtains
• 2 full Bathrooms
• Den w/cable television
• Kitchen w/pantry and pass-through to Dining Room
• Dining Room w/seating for 10
• Living Room w/fireplace and wall of windows… pastoral and mountain views!
• 900 square-foot DECK w/seating and dining areas

WALK-OUT LOWER LEVEL:
• Recreation Room w/ping pong, pub tables and stools, and a seating area w/cable television
• Patio
• Hot Tub

OTHER AMENITIES:
• High Speed wi-fi
• Cable television
• Stereo Receiver with indoor and outdoor speakers
• Land line with unlimited domestic long distance

ANIMAL FRIENDLY! Pets must:
• Have current vaccinations and flea preventative
• Be leashed or obedient and will come to you on command
• Not wander into the neighbors' yards
• Not get on furniture without using the 'Dog Sheets' provided to protect couches and bedding

We DO NOT CHARGE A PET FEE (not yet, anyway!). We do expect guests to maintain control over pets, walk them as needed, prevent damage to the property or furnishings, clean up all messes, and scoop poop out of the upper yard.

The Main Level Master Suite has a private full Bathroom with double sinks, radiant heat flooring, and a walk-in shower for two! There are two other Bedrooms that share a Bathroom. Additional space on the Main Level includes the Kitchen, Dining Room with seating for 10, Living Room with Fireplace and a wall of windows, Den with cable television, and the oh-so-wonderful Deck!

The Lower Level has a Recreation Room with ping pong, pub tables, and a seating area with cable television.

LOCATION: This property is 17 miles from Asheville’s city limits, approximately a 20-25 minute drive to the heart of downtown. It is easily accessed via Interstate 26 and Highway 197, with no curvy mountain roads to maneuver. There are also several cab companies that can transport groups to and from downtown.

It is 10 minutes to the charming historic towns of Weaverville and Mars Hill. It’s only a few miles to the Coleman Boundary area of the Pisgah National Forest, 3 miles to Navitat Canopy Adventures (quite possibly the best zipline company in the country), and the French Broad River is nearby: kayaking, rafting, tubing, and fly fishing are offered by several local Outfitters. Bent Creek recreation area in Asheville ranks among the top 10 Mountain Biking sites in the country!

Voted Beer City USA for 4 consecutive years, there is more than the fabulous craft breweries in Asheville. LaZoom Comedy Tours offer family-friendly as well as R-rated adult entertainment, the Blue Ridge Parkway is beautiful any time of year, the Biltmore Estate is the largest privately-owned house in the United States and is open for tours year-round, the Arboretum and Botanical Gardens are lovely, and other recreational options are seemingly endless! Mix in Ashevilles cuisine, art, and music... you are not likely to find a quaint vacation destination with so much to offer!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I've been in real estate for what seems my entire life. With parents as Realtors, it's always been a family business. I began appraising in college, investing in rentals at the age of 24, and have been a Property Manager ever since. I fell in love with this house and it's view during my first showing (as a Real Estate Broker)... luckily for me, my clients were not interested! Eight months later, I purchased the home and ~8 acres.

Why the Owner Chose Barnardsville, NC, USA:
This property and house leave people in awe... from the initial impression coming up the driveway to the expansive living area leading directly to that 'magnet' of a deck... it has the ideal balance of peace, views, and easy access to downtown and other amenities! It is, undoubtedly, one of the most special properties in the Asheville area! Built in 1986 as a retirement residence with a Swiss Chalet design, there are charming and unique details throughout. The coat closet and pantry lights come on when the doors are opened, skylights and a passive solar design provide a light and bright atmosphere, the ceiling soars to 18' in the Living room, and all rooms of ample size. The kitchen cabinets were hand-made by the original owner and feature a 'Small Appliance Garage': simply open the door with the brass 'Coffee Maker' label, and pull out the trolley upon which sits the coffee maker! The spice drawer might amuse you, or inspire you... the dumbwaiter is non-functioning, but still fun to check out! How often do you see a modern version of Thomas Jefferson's invention? Multiple indoor and outdoor 'living areas' make this home an ideal get-away for intimate escapes, family reunions, or for your visitors who prefer a home rather than a hotel. Spacious and comfortable, there are options to relax in/on the... Den, Living Room, Kitchen with a 'pass-through' to the Dining Room, the Deck, a shady pergola, and 8 acres upon which to roam!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I've made improvements over the years, most of them cosmetic as well as the less exciting upgrades to the major systems (heat/AC, roof, electrical, etc.). Improvements are made every year to modernize the Chalet while maintaining its original charm and character. The house is fully functional and very comfortable. It has come a long way from the fixer-upper condition it was when I purchased it, and I continue to enjoy the process of converting it into my vision and having the ability to share this special property with guests!
