About Glenn Golcher

We actually built this chalet ourselves. It is an authentic Lindal Western Cedar Home

that uses posts and beams to provide soaring spaces inside.

Glenn Golcher purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Glenn Golcher chose Wolf Laurel

This is about as private as it gets and an excellent way to get away from the stresses

of modern society. There are literally no homes directly on any side and only one

home below on the street below our Street. All you see is green trees and distant

Mountain views. No car horns, sirens, car alarms, other noises; strictly nature and

the rustling wind. This chalet also makes for a perfect family reunion

What makes this chalet unique

Lindal Cedar (fragrant)

Internet Streaming using ROKU service on TV

Gourmet kitchen with all the gadgets and Laundry under Counter

Quick access to Interstate Hwy 26 and a quick hop into Asheville and Biltmore Home

Hassle Free check-in/out! No driving to a rental agency to pick up keys, etc..

Beautiful home with excellent views!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 spent 4 days at this location. I don’t think another car came up the same ride the whole time we were there. There was a little snow each day so we couldn’t utilize the driveway but other than that everything else was enjoyable. My Verizon phone service rarely worked but WiFi was available most of the time except for one extremely windy day where it bounced for awhile. Also not a big deal since we were to be enjoying each other and disconnecting from the norm. Excellent road to travel down to Wolf Laurel Ski. Make sure you have supplies you want because he local gas station/ small convenient store is approx 7.5 miles away with local grocery store about 20 minutes away. The fresh covered snowy mountain was breath taking.

poorly maintained, cheap appliances, no charm

  • 1 of 5

This chalet is smaller than the picture would indicate. The entire lower level is an unfinished construction zone that you must walk through to get to the two person hot tub. The appliances were either broken or cheap quality, and there was a general lack of maintenance. The table on the deck looked like it was about to fall apart it was so old. There was expired food in the cupboard and leftover clothes and shoes in the closets. And maybe three towels total. And do not leave the top off the hot tub or it will never heat up again. And there is no outside area at all. We actually left a day early.

Owner's Response: This review just leaves me dumbfounded. All I ask is that you all look at the eleven five star reviews prior to this one. I personally clean the house as the homeowner. All the appliances work.Pictures of the spaces were taken with a normal camera lens; not a panorama or wide-angle lens to suggest a larger space in this chalet. No mention in the listing of the unfinished basement which is NOT part of the rental. If one half of the toaster did not work, sorry. One would expect a hot tub to lose its temperature if you don't keep its thermal lid on in extreme winter temperatures? I have personally counted eight bath towels in my rental, NOT only three? I also live in this house when I am not renting it and have some clothing and food in the house and I mention that it my greeting booklet.. Sorry, but this review does NOT square to the previous reviews.

Comfortable getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed staying at this property! It is easy to get to and everything was as advertised. It does not take long to get in and out of Asheville and the trip back and forth is easy to navigate. Well equipped kitchen enabled us to cook meals altogether and we had no problems at all. The view out of the common area is beautiful--a refreshing sight for those not accustomed to the beauty of the mountains. I would gladly stay at Glenn's place again. He was highly responsive whenever we had a question and was pleasant to deal with.
