Overview

About the property

New log home, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths on 38 acres, close to town but a world away

Located on the south slope of Burney Mountain in the beautiful Mountains of North Carolina, the Chalet at Winghaven is a spacious, sunny log home, built in 2014.

Close to Asheville (twelve miles to downtown) and all its attractions, the Chalet is surrounded by 38 acres of picturesque hardwood forest. Wild turkeys rustle the fallen leaves in winter and lead their young in spring. An abundance of birds and other wildlife can be spotted from the sunny porches and large deck.

Amazingly this natural oasis is walking distance from the local pizza place and the closest large grocery store is less than four miles away!

Open the sliding glass door of the spacious MASTER SUITE to enjoy the mountain air or relax with a glass of wine on the covered porch.

Sleeping in the LOFT BEDROOM with its own private full bathroom feels like being away from it all, up in the trees.

Guests of all ages enjoy the BUNK ROOM which is adjacent to another full bathroom which features a washer and dryer.

The open kitchen /dining / living space with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams is bright and airy during the day and cozy at night with a fire in the Danish wood stove.

Outdoor amenities include two covered porches, a deck, a gas grill and a fire pit perfect for making s'mores.

The Chalet is a convenient home base for the multitude of activities our area has to offer: Visit the Biltmore Estate ( 11miles), Downtown Asheville (12 miles), Historic Hendersonville (14 miles), go tubing or kayaking on the French Broad River, zip lining, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, hike a different trail every day or see five magnificent waterfalls in just one day. There are wine tastings, beer tours, music and dance performances to attend and fabulous restaurants to try. Biking is a favorite sport here be it on the road or on mountain trails. We are more than happy to help you with planning your vacation so please talk to us and let us know what you are interested in.

Of course the chalet is also an awesome place to just relax, enjoy the sun shining through the leaves, the peace of the forest and the starlit nights. Please note that the Chalet is accessed by a private gravel road but 4-wheel drive is usually not necessary.

About Jofre & Saskia Cacanindin

After living or owning properties in Germany, the Philippines, Hawaii, Manhattan, Croton-on-Hudson, and Raleigh, we chose the Asheville area to raise our three children. We love the cultural and natural richness of this place. The mountains, forests, ecological diversity, waterfalls and the local food movement, farms and markets, outstanding restaurants, cultural events and interesting, friendly people make this a great place to live and visit. We decided to build the Chalet at Winghaven so we can welcome people to this amazing area that we enjoy so very much.

We live just about ten minutes away from Winghaven, on a small farm with dairy goats, rare breed chickens, ducks, geese and dogs. . Of course we would also be delighted to have you come in person and visit with the animals during your stay at Winghaven! Naturally, we will always have fresh eggs from our happy hens as well as handmade goat's milk soap for you at the Chalet at Winghaven.

Why Jofre & Saskia Cacanindin chose Fletcher

We looked for a long time to find the ideal vacation rental property here in our beautiful area. We were not satisfied with what we could find, so we decided to build it ourselves! The chalet is very close to our own home, but we still feel like we are on vacation every time we go up there, even though we go there mostly to work! We love the seclusion and privacy of a large property, but we don't like to drive forever to pick up some groceries, go to a restaurant or enjoy the culture of our region. One of the most important aspects in our search for the perfect vacation spot was that the home needed to be sunny and bright. When we found this amazing piece of land it was just a perfect fit. We love the special feeling and connection to nature that only a log home can offer, so this is what we built and we feel that it fits its location amazingly well.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet feels bright, airy and warm, with its exposed wooden beams, high ceilings and natural materials throughout. We love to have a crackling fire in the wood stove when it is chilly outside or sit on the porches and enjoy a glass of wine under the stars in summer.

We designed the home to take full advantage of its location and the mountain views. The inside and outside connect through sliding glass doors and huge windows.

The loft bedroom is amazing, it feels like you are sleeping in the tree canopy up and away from it all. Our kids love the bunk room, this is a favorite sleepover spot for them and their friends. The master bedroom is spacious and it is nice to open the sliding glass door to the porch and take in the night air before going to sleep.

We love to explore the forest, follow the little stream downhill and look for the large flock of wild turkeys that is always to be found here somewhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the Chalet from December 27 to December 30.

The whole family had a great time! We enjoyed the private setting, the turkeys calling in the background and our children and the dog loved to roam the woods. The wraparound deck is a great place to soak up some sun, even in December. The home was super clean and spacious, the cathedral ceilings are beautiful and the kitchen fully equipped to cook up some good dinners. Oh, and the towels are amazing, I went out and bought the same ones for my own home!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely chalet at the end of October. Even though the weather did not cooperate, the chalet provided a relaxing mini vacation for my family of 9 (6 adults, 2 pre-teens and a 1 year old). The chalet was very clean, the bedrooms were spread out so each family had their own area and the baby gates, electric socket protectors and pack-n-play being provided were very much appreciated! The driveway was rough, but manageable if you took it slow. I would definitely recommend staying at the chalet - you won't be disappointed!

Perfect cabin for a perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I got together to celebrate a birthday and I couldn't have picked a better rental cabin! It was secluded from everything yet close to everything at the same time, it was the perfect size, had all of the amenities we needed including a wonderful fire pit. The place was immaculate when we arrived and had anything we needed if we forgot anything. The cabin feels like it was built yesterday with everything appearing fresh and clean and new. No bugs in sight! We truly enjoyed this cabin and I've already recommended it to several family members and friends if they want a nice place to get away!

Beautiful home situated in a very convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and the home was absolutely perfect! The beds were comfortable and anything we needed was there. The property is quiet and secluded enough to enjoy, but not so far up the mountain that you can’t enjoy other aspects of the town quickly!

A true mountain cabin experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the chalet. Excellent amenities for cooking, which we did a lot of and very kid friendly with toys, games, pack and play, high chair and gates! Superb communication with owners in booking and providing information as needed. The driveway is a bit of a trek up the mountain but you arrive at a very beautiful, peaceful location you won't be disappointed in. If we are ever in the area again, we would definitely stay again!

Beautiful home and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and had lots of toys for the kids. The drive to the house was a little rough on the car, so I would recommend an SUV.

Chalet at Winghaven

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 8 females (sisters, sister-in-laws, aunt and cousin) ranging in age from 57 to 79, so we are likely not the typical group for this house--yet we truly enjoyed our stay and appreciate the owners' responsiveness to our needs. The deck was a central location for our visits, as was the dining table where we spent many happy hours visiting and playing games. We appreciated the little amenities one sometimes doesn't find in rental houses, such as coffee, snacks, even lovely soaps for each person. The only suggestion might be additional chairs as we had to move chairs inside/outside as we moved. Thanks, Saskia and Jofre, for our wonderful few days.
