Come Relax in Blue Ridge Mtns and Enjoy Views from the Living Room Or deck
Our Mountain Chalet is a beautiful naturally lit 3 story home with an open floor plan and with 2 Master bedrooms. Come relax on our wrap-around deck or on the balcony. Enjoy the stars and fireflies in the evening around our fire pit. Listen to the sound of cicadas as you fall asleep during summer and Fall nights. Gaze out of our sliding glass doors and large windows from the leather sofas in the living room and enjoy the mountain views during any season. Enjoy our extensive library with many wildflower, wildlife, and bird identification books. Experience the mountains without having to drive far to enjoy downtown Waynesville. We are less than 5 minutes from Downtown Waynesville and 10 minutes from Maggie Valley, NC. Jump on the Blue Ridge Parkway (we provide free maps with our favorite spots circled), which is 15 minutes from the house. Easefully arrive at the house, paved roads the whole way, no steep gravely driveway. Large driveway allows more than three vehicles for large parties.
Give your self a spa or golf day and take a day trip to the Waynesville Golf Resort and Spa, only 1.3 miles from the Chalet. Take the kids to the Pigeon River, we have the best kept local secret and will share with you after booking. It is only 15 minutes from the Chalet and has a rope swing and Gazebo.
Receive our quest treasure hunt list-designed by me (USFWS Botanist) and my husband (Event Coordinator for City of Asheville). Let us give you a Vacation of a lifetime:))
Why we love our home-
The wrap around deck and balcony allow for maximum relaxation. The exposed beams give it a cabin flare. It is perfect for a family because we have four bedrooms with three full bathrooms so everybody has there own space.. Its also a perfect house and location for a romantic getaway. The master bedroom has a high vaulted ceiling and opens up to its own private balcony. The master bath has a jet tub. Also on the 3rd story is a 2nd bedroom with two twin beds. The first story bedroom has a Master bedroom with its own private bath. The fourth bedroom has a day bed with a trundle. Our house is nicely decorated and is lightly lived in. It feels new and cozy like a cottage. Being a botanist, there are many floral paintings and prints. The house is located in close proximity to Great Smoky Mountains National park, Nantahala National Forest, and Pisgah National forest making it perfect for outdoor enthusiasts.

About April and Vasily Punsalan
Vasily and I grew up in Norfolk, Virginia on the coast. We lived in the mountains for a decade and moved to Charleston, SC. I was the Botanist for Nantahala National Forest and accepted a Botanist job with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Charleston. Vasily was an event coordinator for the City of Asheville and now works for Charleston County Parks. We love to travel and explore new sights and sounds. We are happy to share the Chalet with travelers and think Waynesville-Western North Carolina is a special area.
April and Vasily Punsalan purchased this Chalet in 2013

It is a beautiful home with tons of windows, offering views from many rooms. It has a lot of natural light and is open and nicely built. It is close to the highway and easy to access. Also, close to downtown Waynesville and still close to downtown Asheville.
What makes this Chalet unique
Balcony, wrap-around deck, two master bedrooms, three full bathrooms. Library with lots of naturalist and gardening books-my personal collection.

Perfect for our sisters weekend!
My sisters and I came for a weekend get-together and we absolutely love this property. It is cozy, comfortable, quiet, and lovely. We have decided we want to come back next year for our next sisters weekend. The owners are very nice and helpful as well. I definitely recommend this property.
I had my daughter's bridal party housed here for her wedding in Waynesville, NC- the girls loved it and it made for beautiful pictures with a light snowfall Friday night.
We are so glad y'all had a great time! Come back anytime!
A beautiful home for small family gatherings
My sister and I booked this home for a weekend to attend and celebrate my daughter’s graduation from Western Carolina University. The home is nicely decorated, the beds comfortable, and the fireplace very inviting after a full day’s activities. It is very obvious that the homeowners have a huge love of nature and the outdoors. The kitchen has everything one would need to prepare family meals. The home is tucked away in a quiet area but many points of interest are only a short drive away. We are already planning an all girls weekend just so we can come back to this home and explore the area more.
Thank you for the great review! Very well said. Come back soon!
A bit shabby - plenty of room
