The chalet-styled cabin is comfortable and cozy, newly renovated and decorated. Plenty of windows to view the natural beauty of the surrounding forest.

Standing on the deck, you see and feel the canopy of the forest. Quiet, relaxing and peaceful. Spend time in the hot tub, enjoy, relax and take a deep breath. In no time, you will wish you had a few extra days to continue unwinding at this woodland beauty.

Great Place for Girl's Weekend Celebration!

Great Place for Girl's Weekend Celebration!
  • 5 of 5
Six friends from Philly, NY and NJ were visiting me for a girl's weekend celebration of my birthday so I knew I had to make it special for them too. The Woodlands Chalet was the perfect place to stay and was extremely easy for us to venture into downtown Asheville. If you're looking for serenity yet lots of laughs, beautiful views with a relaxing soak in a hot tub and the ability make some delicious meals with an easy drive to Asheville and other sites, then the Woodlands Chalet is a must!

Owner's Response: Paula - we were so delighted to have you and the other ladies for a weekend birthday celebration. What a great idea to gather everyone in the mountains and at this time of year - it is so lovely on the mountain with spring springing. We hope you had plenty of time to relax and enjoy the views, the hot tub and a little exploring in Asheville. David and I look forward to another visit from you and the girls. We are grateful - Brea (& David)

We really loved our stay here. Just what we needed to recharge a bit and enjoy the mountains and each other on our anniversary. Wish we could have stayed longer. It really is close to downtown Asheville, but feels like it's away from everything. Even with the leaves fallen, it's pretty private. And the view is astounding. I can't imagine you're going to find a better cabin situation than this one, and thankfully, the decor is not the cheesy "bears & quilts" stuff you find in a lot of places. It's kinda "modern rustic," and none of it feels like 15 year old rejects that came from the owner's personal house (you know what I'm talking about). The cabin is very clean. Dishes are quality. The bed and sheets were amazing. The fireplace and hot tub were so worth the extra $. The manager, Brea, was great, too. Only downside I suppose is the drive up and down the mountain. It's a really steep haul without many switchbacks, but I guess that's to be expected. I don't think a 4wd would even have much luck on those grades in icy conditions, so get the travel insurance if you're staying in the winter. BTW, the restaurant suggestions in the book are outdated. There are WAY better places in Asheville now. Try Bull & Beggar, Table, The Admiral, Curate, Rhubarb, Red Stag ($$$) or Zambra, Strada, Salsa, Nine Mile ($$). But Barley's is still a great choice for pizza & beer. And don't miss the French Broad Chocolate Lounge for coffee & dessert.

Last thing to know, we considered coming back with our kids (9 & 7), but there's not much space for unstructured play outside given that it's situated on the side of a mountain. Just FYI. Beautiful nonetheless.

Owner's Response: Thank you! So glad you experienced a serene cozy and romantic anniversary. The Woodlands is fondly called “a treehouse” because it is built on the side of the mountain. It is amazing how tall the trees are – towering above the chalet. Stunning views from the windows and/or the deck provide relief from the hustle of a busy city life. We hope you were able to enjoy some of the magnificent purple and orange sunsets during your stay. Of course, inside, the chalet has a way of maintaining it’s relationship with nature and offers a cozy place to just “be”. We thank you about the dining list. It is hard to keep it current as the restaurants come and go and some stay like Zambra, Salsa’s and Barley’s. We’ll get right to work on updating the restaurant guide – thank you. As for space for unstructured play outside for the kids, you may want to try Charmed Cottage or Chalet Quietude as both have some “flat land” for outdoor play and exploring. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to hear from you again. Thank you for the review and suggestions – we appreciate that and will create a new list. Brea & David

Beautiful views and sunrises

  • 4 of 5
The girls weekend 2014 was a success, mostly in part due to this gorgeous property. The house was very well stocked, the owners close by and accommodating, and the views here are the best. We experienced the first snow of Asheville, which while beautiful, did make getting to the house a bit difficult. Half of our party couldn't make it up the mountain and fortunately we had a 4WD with us so we could get them the rest of the way. I just want to note, the sacrifice of the beautiful view is a tricky ride in the snow. So just go into this aware, if you book in the fall and/or winter, I wouldn't recommend driving anything but a 4WD vehicle. All that aside, we will be back to Asheville in another few years. What a great area.

Owner's Response: Dear Melissa – it was so good to have you and the girls as our guest. What a surprise and a thrill to have such a substantial snowfall so early. I think the news said it has not happened since 1953 or so. You had the best of both fall and winter in a matter of 48 hours. The beauty of our mountain is that by the afternoon after the overnight snowfall, all was clear, driveable and back to fall again. It is rare that our guests need a 4-wheel drive – it was lucky you had one though. After all that, the days were beautiful, sunny and just the best. So glad you had the opportunity to experience the Woodlands, Asheville, snow and fall – what a great combination! We look forward to your visit again. Brea & David

Lovely mountain house

  • 5 of 5
We had a girls weekend at the house. It was much bigger than how the pictures portray. The house was perfect for us. We cooked steaks and vegetables on the grill which, was followed up with a nice dip in hot tub on a crisp fall night. The house was perfect. We would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you Danielle,
So everyone enjoyed the girl’s weekend at the Woodlands Chalet! That makes us very happy. It is in an ideal location for experiencing the mountains and forest yet close to downtown. We know you were surprised with your grilling skills - so happy it turned out great! It is so special in the fall with the cool nights and sunny warm days. A nice “hot” hot tub on a crisp fall night is just about the best – so glad you enjoyed it. And, the layout of the chalet is ideal for a girl's trip. We hope to have you come stay again.

Exceed your expectations...

  • 5 of 5
...our experince was above expectations. We got a call shortly after arrival and another follow up a couple of days later - we were there for 4 nights. It was well stocked, had all the amenities you would expect in a high end rental. We were close to Ashevile,yet felt we were the only people in the forest. Spectacular views. Plenty of room too.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jeff - your review made our week. We are always thrilled when we see the phrase "exceeded our expectations". Indeed it is a very private location and it is like being the only people on the mountain. You are away from the traffic, the city and neighbors. Amazing what a few days in the mountains can do for ones soul. And, you are right - driving to Asheville is very easy and only a short distance away. It reminds me of the old saying "you can't HAVE your cake and EAT it (too)". In this case, you can HAVE serenity of the mountains and HAVE the activity of Asheville. It's the best of both worlds! Thank you and we wish to have you again on another trip to the mountains of Western North Carolina. Our best, Brea & David

Peaceful, Breathtaking Views

Beautiful chalet with excellent views. Great for families with 3 levels. Would not be good for older people that cannot do steps easily. Enjoyed our trip immensely.

Owner's Response: Thank you Janice. We appreciate the time you took to write. The view is great and we especially love it when having breakfast on the deck. I hope you had a chance to do that - I know there were some rainy days during your stay. You are right about it being 3 stories and perfect for families. The really cool thing though is that when two people stay, they feel just as much at home because everything they need is on the one main floor. And yes, the picturesque stairway to paradise could cause a problem for elderly if they have problems with stairs. However, we've had many stay there and they simply take their time and pause at each of the many landings. We hope you get to come stay with us again. Brea & David
