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!

About Paula Taylor
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.
Paula Taylor purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Paula Taylor chose Flat Creek
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!
What makes this Cabin unique
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!

Very good scenic views, spacious, good value.
Good value for the money. The house is fine; lots of space. The basement area is a nice gathering place but had a stale smell like a lot of basements. The hot tub was very nice. The views are good. Everything in the house was in good working order and just about any kitchen utensil one could want was provided. Overall, our experience was a positive one and the owner and the caretaker were vets nice and attentive to anything we needed. It is likely that we will rent this property again in the future.
Picked the perfect weekend! Around 7" of snow at a very quiet and peaceful chalet! Plenty of room, and a very responsive and caring owner. Everything you'll need is in this house. Great time had by all
Fantastic Couples Getaway!
We loved our stay at the Chalet. The house is as described/pictured & we couldn't have asked for a better location or view. We couldn't get enough of the the night view of the stars from the hot tub (we live in a city so this was an awesome treat)! The house has a really chill, old-school vibe, and it feels like a lot of great times have happened there... our stay was no exception! Would absolutely stay here again!!
July in the Mountains!
Large rooms, rolling grounds, and privacy make this a wonderful home in the mountains. The inside is clean, with comfortable beds and comfortable linens and towels. Criticisms are few... there were some old cabinets which had been left outside near the garage, detracting from the overall impression. The kitchen cabinets are a little dated, and there is some outside paint and grounds maintenance that could use some sprucing up, Show stoppers? Not at all. It's a homey, comfortable place where your dogs and kids can run and play. It's got a lot of room to eat and entertain, inside and out. I would recommend to others.
The chalet is everything we were looking for. We had a group of 6 that wanted space and great views. This house had everything! easy to access, clean and great stars at night. It was hard to leave the porch.
great relaxing trip
There were 6 of us total, three couples. We had a great relaxing trip staying in the mountains. Lots of space in the home. It was close to Asheville so we were able to go downtown and tour the bars and shops. Plenty of kitchen space to cook a meal in the evening. Owner was very helpful - home was very clean! We would stay again.
Only 17 miles from Asheville City limits, this property is a peaceful and private lodge-style retreat (allow 20-25 minutes drive time to Asheville). The charming town of Weaverville is less than 10 miles and offers restaurants, shops, galleries, grocery, pharmacies, and banking.
