Our delightful cedar chalet is tucked away in a cluster of cottages with 33 acres of woodlands right out your back door. This quiet woodlands area is ideally located between Asheville and Hendersonville with only 15 minutes to either downtown and the Biltmore Estate.
A cheerful gas log stone fireplace in a soaring 20 foot wall with a lovely oil painting above greet you as you enter your front door. The luxurious, very comfortable couches and rich marble tables are quietly elegant and a perfect nest to watch your flat screen 37" HDTV with simple-to-use built-in DVD. Watch a movie from our big movie library or watch cable TV. Better yet, it's the ideal spot to just peacefully sit and unwind in front of the fire.
Central air conditioning makes summers cool although seldom needed in these Blue Ridge Mountains. Just past the living room is the eat-in kitchen, pretty powder room and laundry area.
For the fun of it, we've provided a vintage 1948 Scrabble board with 100 wooden tiles, a 1961 Monopoly game, a 1974 Easy Money game plus games such as chess, checkers, playing cards, Yahtzee, etc. In addition, we have a selection of enjoyable paperback novels.
KING BEDROOM SUITE:
Your romantic upstairs bedroom suite features a magnificent tapestry over a plush Simmons king bed, sumptuous cotton sheets, butter-soft blankets & elegant comforter. Lay back in luxury while you watch your flat screen TV with a simple-to-use built-in DVD/VCR.
A handsome dresser, chest of drawers and walk-in closet offer plenty of space for your clothes. And, best of all, an amazing Human Touch Technology Massage Chair will send you to heaven...it's our favorite ultimate pleasure! A tasteful bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub/shower and soft cotton towels complete the master suite.
If you prepare meals at home, your eat-in kitchen is thoughtfully & fully equipped with quality cookware! You have full-size appliances, electric flat cooktop with self-cleaning oven, dishwasher, microwave, and disposal. Enhance your meals by serving them on our festive hand-painted dinnerware, heavy glasses and quality silverware. You'll find sharp knives, a multitude of pots, pans, bake dishes, cookie sheets, cake pans, pizza pan, muffin pans, hand mixer, toaster, blender, waffle iron, coffee maker and even a coffee grinder for your freshly brewed coffee. You'll find a selection of spices and a few other goodies as well.
There's also a full-size washer and dryer for your convenience.
Step out your back door onto a wonderful screened, covered porch. Relax there in privacy in an intimate two-person lounger spa hot tub and view the woods and wildlife in your back yard. Drink a morning cup of coffee in the deck chairs or venture out into the yard to follow the woodlands path to the creek and swing. Ah, the romance of it all!

My wife and I can't stop daydreaming about out time spent at the joy chalet. We celebrated our 12th wedding aniversary and a quite and peaceful break from our jobs, children and otherwise hectic lives. With all the things to do in the area, it was nice to do none of them and just relax.
"A truly Joyfull experience!"
We're both from the UK and after a rather traumatic year previously we were in need of a good holiday and are thankful that all is now well again. We've been coming to the Blue Ridge Mountains for many years now and love it for its beautiful scenery and friendly people although we have not spent a great deal of time in the Asheville area. I am so delighted we found Joy Chalet to spend our time in and what a "joy" it proved to be. Our first impressions when we entered were "wow what a lovely place". It has been so well thought out and every need was catered for, lovely furnishings and dÃ©cor and extremely comfortable. We loved spending time on the deck with our sundowners often staying till dark and listening to the night sounds of the forest and seeing the occasional turkey walk by in the yard. The area has so much to offer and is close to good shops and restaurants. Stephanie and Robert were very friendly and helpful and we thank you both very much and, hopefully, we will be able to return to Joy Chalet again in the future.

"Upscale, romantic couples retreat!!"
Our time spent at joy chalet was very much like staying at a five star resort. All the lovely amenities including the hot tub, massage chair,
wonderful comfortable bed with high quality linens helped to make us feel pampered. We especially enjoyed the location of the chalet which had nature all around to behold and close to all the things we enjoy doing: hiking, golfing, The Biltmore Estate, sight seeing, lovely restaurants, and both asheville and Hendersonville. The service that both Stephanie and Robert provide is impeccable from start to finish!
The Goodmans, Winter Haven, FL
Fabulous week! The Joy Chalet was a most comfortable and well appointed cabin to spend our week away in the mountains. Situated between Asheville and Hendersonville was a plus, as we enjoyed touring Asheville and had friends in Hendersonville. We appreciated the book of suggestions/recommendations left for us at the Chalet as well as all of the brochures and eating suggestions.
We will recommend the Joy Chalet and any of the other larger rentals by this owner.
- Judy & Roger, Summerfield, FL
Our stay at the Joy Chalet was one of the most, if not the most, relaxing and enjoyable experiences. There was nothing lacking in this quiet, peaceful, comfortable home. The owners were very easy and pleasant to work with at every point in our venture. The location of the home was perfect! Not too far from town, but in a quiet, serene setting. There is nothing to dislike about this home! The living space was comfortable but the best part was the bed. Oh how comfortable it was! The hot tub on the back screened porch was so nice, as were the chairs on the same porch. The very, very best part was the cleanliness of the home. Everything was perfect!
- The Swansons, Chickamauga, GA
Everything about Joy Chalet is marvelous. The furnishings are sumptuous and artwork is everywhere (even under the steps). The bed is the most comfortable I've been in for a long time. I would have loved to have taken it home with me along with the what? 1000 thread count sheets. Luxurious. The hot tub was sparkling and was oh so welcome on those cool evenings. Sitting on the back porch watching the squirrels and the birds was a restful pasttime. Joy Chalet was stocked with everything you need for a long week-end or in our case a week. It was a true pleasure to spend time in this charming abode while in the Asheville area. Thank you, Stephanie & Robert for sharing this gem!
- Nancy & Bob, Linwood, NJ
"Wow! The Joy Chalet was our home away from homeâ€¦"
What an awesome place. The Joy Chalet had everything we needed and then some. Thank you, Stephanie, for making sure our stay was exactly what we needed. We will definitely recommend the Joy Chalet to our family and friends. Our time in NC went so quickly and we are ready to come back. The Joy Chalet is only a short drive to The Biltmore, Dupont Forest Park (beautiful waterfalls and hiking), downtown asheville, and many fantastic places to dine. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.
- The Shraders, Lafayette, GA
This was our second trip to the Joy Chalet. It was just as great as the last time. It seems that every time we are able to get away, that it is usually at the end of the "stressful times". And it, the Chalet, is just what the doctor ordered.
The relaxed pace was made to order for us. Days spent sleeping in, lounging around, or soaking in the hot tub. Nights brought great dinners in asheville. The decor adds to the romance of the Chalet. Everything in its place and nothing left to chance. Stephanie, thanks for all the details, it makes everthing so smooth. We will be looking forward to our next trip!!
- Wayne & Crystal, High Point NC
"What an awesome chalet."
From the moment I walked in, I felt at home. The chalet was very well appointed and extremely clean. Everything anyone could possibly need was provided. Very convenient to major highways and all the attractions. Although close to the airport it felt secluded with trees everywhere and the backyard led to a wooded area with a lovely path to a stream and a swing hanging from the trees. The hot tub was great. I loved staying so much that I extended my stay for 2 more days. I took my dog with me and the area is so dog friendly. I took him just about everywhere I went. I am definitely going to return to the Joy Chalet and I highly recommend staying there; you won't be disappointed.

"Awesome 5 Star Chalet!!!"
Look no more!!! This is the best little chalet that I've ever stayed in. It is so clean and a very relaxing environment. Everything is well instructed so there are no questions or lost time in trying to figure out how anything works. One of my favorite things about this chalet is the Fireplace. The logs look and feel so real but you just touch a button to light and do the same to turn it off. Another thing I like is the massage chair. This was so soothing after a day of touring and hiking trails. Then, the hot tub and jacuzzi are both nice and felt so good after a long day. This chalet is very clean and the linens are great. The towels are soft and just the right thickness. The bed is very comfortable and the sheets are as well. There are other chalets around but the way it sits among others, it's very private. We didn't hear or barely see anyone the entire time we were there. I loved the location. It's very close to everything but yet far enough away that you felt like you were secluded from everything. Our main goal was to tour the Parkway. It was so beautiful this time of year. We toured all the way to Virginia before turning around and heading back to our cabin. Stephanie and Robert are wonderful people to rent from. The little things that they have done to this home are wonderful. The home is decorated beautifully and all of the appliances are very up to date. Time we walked in the door, I knew I had made a great choice of where my husband and I were going to spend our vacation! We both loved it and plan to be back! Thanks Stephanie and Robert!

"Serenity and Security"
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed at 9-day stay at the Joy Chalet. While we toured that area of NC, we spent a fair amount of time in the chalet. We found it to have everything we needed (and lots more) in a home away from home. We loved the hot tub, and it was clean and ready to go when we arrived. It stayed that way during our entire visit -- always ready. I found it difficult to get my husband out of the massage chair, and admittedly it is incredible. We expected we might not sleep well, as the bed would be strange to us; however, we found the bed to be absolutely divine. We slept well each and every night we were there. You will love the sheets! You'll also love the walk through the woods down to the creek where you will find a double wooden swing hanging from a tree at the edge of the creek. We saw lots of wild turkeys throughout the asheville/Hendersonville/Flat Rock areas, and we even saw some strolling across the path that leads from the chalet to the creek. We felt very safe and secure in the Joy Chalet. All TVs worked well and wi-fi was an added bonus. Stephanie called to make sure we had settled in and found everything to be satisfactory. She would have been available to us at the drop of a hat, should we have needed her. But, the Joy Chalet met our every need from the beginning of our stay through our last day there. We were able to have our Rottweiler and Coton de Tulear with us, and we learned the asheville area is very pet friendly. One day while walking through the neighborhood, a sheriff's deputy stopped his car to offer us biscuits for our dogs. We are seriously contemplating relocating to that area within the next couple of years.
- Tanya & Les, Warsaw, IN
"Outstanding Experience!" We truly enjoyed our stay at the Joy Chalet. Extremely convenient to everywhere (Biltmore, WNC Farmers Market, downtown asheville, Blue Ridge Pkwy, I could go on and on). The Chalet itself is extremely well equipped. I consider myself a better than average cook and they had all the supplies to ensure that I could make any meal. Spices in the cabinet and great "gadgets". Living room was comfortable and cozy and the sleeping loft was outstanding - comfortable bed and linens and quiet enough to take a nap while your spouse caught the game on tv. The hot tub on the screen enclosed patio was delightful and the whole back area is pretty much private. There was a nice swing down the path near a creek as well. The owners have thought of every need for us to enjoy our stay. We can't wait to come back!
- Theresa & Bud, St Augustine, FL
"Everything you need, and then some!" We were extremely pleased with our stay at Joy Chalet. Everything we could have asked for was provided, including restaurant recommendations, explicit directions on how to use everything in the house, a well-stocked kitchen, even a massage chair to use after those hikes in the mountains, just to name a few. Check-in was a breeze, and the owners have gone out of their way to make each renter feel right at home. We loved it!!!
- Paul & Carol, Douglasville, GA
"Fantastic!!!" The Joy Chalet was exactly what we were looking for - off the beaten path, but not too far, privacy, luxurious - yet comfortable, completely furnished - also stocked with books, movies, games, folder with: chalet instructions, directions, restaurant menus, places to see, grocery saver shopping card, etc... All of our needs were met and expectations exceeded. From my first inquiry through checking out, we had fantastic service. We felt very pampered, and honestly, did not want to leave.
- Linda & Roger, McHenry, IL
We had them most wonderfully romantic honeymoon anyone could dream of. The Joy Chalet was so beautiful and cozy with all the amenities that you could think of. It was like having a fairy god mother there and when you thought of something you wanted to do or needed you would go to a drawer or cabinet and "poof" it was there. I can't say enough about the location. It could not have been more perfect. It was so close to so many beautiful place and neat things to do. And again that fairy god mother had so many brochures and pamphlets with enough things to keep you busy for at least a year. I think the best part was at the end of the day when you get back the chalet and soak in the hot tub and then cuddle up by the fire and then climb up to the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. So I guess you have can see we had a great time and will certainly be back!!!!!!!!
-Melesia T, Lakeland, FL
This is our 8th anniversary and actually the BEST! We have stayed in 5 star resorts, cabins, chalets and this was absolutely much better by far. The decor is great, the chalet was very clean and wonderfully cozy!
After a fabulous tour of the Biltmore estate and a lot of hiking, the massage chair was ideal for our backs. My husband had trouble keeping me out of it. I will definitely recommend this chalet to my friends and family. It has truly been a "JOY" staying here. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant.
-James & Charlotte T, Valley Head, AL
We loved every moment we spent at the Joy Chalet! While we enjoyed the many "home away from home" features, our favorite thing about staying here was the short walk through the woods to the creek and the bench swing. We spent most mornings sitting and swinging, watching the little fishies in the creek. Sooooo relaxing!
We made good use of the hot tub and the massage chair, as well as the Ingles Advantage card for the grocery shopping we did. It might seem like something small but we felt it was a special touch that was added for our benefit, and it saved us money! The binder of information (directions, locations of various stores/restaurants, menus, instructions) was invaluable and was used every day. The bedding was so soft and inviting, it was hard to get up in the morning! We loved that the chalet is located so close to everything we either needed or wanted to do, yet we had a lot of privacy.
Thank you, Stephanie and Robert, for making our vacation the most relaxing one we've ever taken. It was truly difficult to leave the Joy Chalet and return to the "real world"!
-Kerensa & Carola, North Plainfield, NJ
After 5 days in Heaven at Joy Chalet this week, I am now in love with your rental and want to make many future reservations as I found everything you have stated about this wonderful place to be understated and deserving of the highest rating I can imagine. You truly have a place one can come to and feel at home in. Lavish and meticulous are two words that are synonymous with Joy Chalet. No words can describe the Happiness and JOY we experienced. Five stars plus! Best we've ever stayed at. Be back many times.
Sumner & Debbie, Arlington, VA
My husband and I loved the Joy chalet! We went there to celebrate 6 yr anniversary. The chalet was beautiful! Beautiful setting, beautifully decorated and well taken care of. Loved the fireplace, massage chair and hot tub. Very peaceful and relaxing. We were also close to the Biltmore which we toured. We would recommend staying there to anyone and we will definitely return!
-The Grahams, Chillicothe, Ohio
This has to be, by far, the most well furnished home we have ever stayed in! We would like to thank you for thinking of everything! So many times when we travel there is always something we forget...well not here! Even the kitchen is well stocked with spices and being from New Orleans, we love spice!! We were very comfortable here, and because our son is going to camp up here, we will return as well as recommend the Joy Chalet to our friends! Thanks again!
- Hope & Jimmy M, New Orleans, LA
The Joy Chalet was the perfect place for our honeymoon. The home was beautifully decorated, the furnishings were extremely comfortable and the location was central to Asheville, Henderson and hiking trails in DuPont State Forest, with easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We loved the fireplace, hot tub, massage chair and the small trail out back leading to a love seat by a small stream. Stephanie and Robert have done an amazing job with the Chalet, it will be a key part of our fond memories of our first few days together as husband and wife!
-Diyar and Chris, Virginia Beach, VA
The Joy Chalet is WONDERFUL, very well thought out for the comfort of the guest. The furnishing are comfortable and stylish, the bed felt like we were sleeping on a cloud. The information provided for the guest answers any question you may have about restaurants, grocery stores, etc. The area is beautiful and so peacefully quiet. We plan to return as soon as time allows. Stephanie & Robert know just exactly how to treat their guests!! I highly recommend to anyone who wants to spend time in the area!
-Carolyn B, New Castle, DE
First of all I would like to thank you for a very pleasant stay at your Joy Chalet. We had a wonderful stay with everything being so close but yet so peaceful. The combination of things to do and just relaxing in the home was so great. There are many things to do around Asheville and wish we could have gotten to them all! The trail to the creek is a peaceful place. It was our first trip together and you made it very memorable. The house is equipped for anything you need on a vacation.
Upon walking into the home you are welcomed by warmth and coziness. Everything was above and beyond what I was expecting. Once again thank you for the memories and look forward to a possible stay there sometime in the future.
-The Wilsons, Southern Pines
Ellen and I spent a lovely week at the Joy chalet. We thoroughly enjoyed the back porch for morning coffee in the cool air listening to all of the birds and their sweet songs. The hot tub was very relaxing in the evening and very private. The location was near everything we chose to do from hiking to shopping in Asheville, Hendersonville and Black Mountain and general rubber necking on the parkway from Boone to Cherokee.
The accommodations were absolutely wonderful and the bed was fabulously comfortable to the point it is what we are looking at for home. Stephanie and Robert have thought of everything you need to make your stay comfortable and easy down to the needles and thread and eyeglass repair kit. We will recommend this to anyone.
-Ken and Ellen, Port Orange, Fl
This was our second stay in Joy Chalet. It was wonderful. Stephanie & Robert know how to make their guests comfortable. I would recommend the chalet to anyone. It is comfort, convenience, very peaceful and southern hospitality at the highest level. I've stayed at hotels such as the Peabody in the Memphis and have actually felt more comfortable at the Joy Chalet. If it was possible I would return every few months just to experience the comfort once again! It is just like spending time at a high end spa, but for more than just a few hours or a day. Thanks again for the wonderful experience.
-Carolyn B, New Castle, DE
The "JOY" Chalet is appropriately named!!! When I first opened the front door, Joy entered. The online pictures are great, but they pale to the real beauty and comfort of this chalet. Your personality shines through the decor. The massage chair is nice, but it doesn't compare to the relaxation given in the hot tub. The overall comfort provided here is awesome!!! Thank you for opening your heart and home to us. Your graciousness and thoughtfulness of the "little" things is greatly appreciated. The beautiful wooded surroundings are breathtaking! We will definitely return!
-Roxy & Minon, Kingsport, TN
You thought of everything and then some. Nicely decorated, perfect location, and the most comfortable bed ever! We cannot say enough about Stephanie and Robert. Very nice folks and very professional. We would stay in one of your cabins any time. Thanks for making our 30th Anniversary trip memorable.
-Diane & Alan Guerrero, Wellington, Florida
Joy Chalet was the perfect spot to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! The home was comfortable, clean, and cozy. The back porch was our favorite spot for breakfast in the morning and relaxation in the evening. We agree with comments from others about the massage chair. Pure heaven! The location of Joy Chalet was convenient to all the area's attractions. There is so much to do in Asheville and we were happy to have the two-day pass to the Biltmore which we purchased through the owners of Joy Chalet. Everything about our stay was perfect. We'd love to return to Joy Chalet!
-Bob and Carol, Edmond, Oklahoma
Joy Chalet. A home for home. Beautiful layout inside. A great Spa. The most comfortable bed you have ever slept in.
-Daniel, Miami FL
We very much enjoyed our stay in your cozy, comfortable, and spotless little chalet. Thanks for thoughtfully equipping it so well! You've thought of everything, from the luxurious sheets and throws to the high-quality kitchen equipment and games and movies. Since we spent a very happy holiday season there, we particularly enjoyed your Christmas decorations. Thanks again, Stephanie; we hope to return!
-Peggy and Bill, Morrisville, NC
Unbelievable is the only word needed to describe our New Year's holiday spent here. This cozy chalet is absolutely perfect and we were nearly overcome from all of the amenities that we were offered. It was almost like vacationing in a showcase home for Southern Living. Thank you SO VERY MUCH for showing us such warm hospitality Stephanie!! May God bless you for many more years to come. We hope to come back soon again to stay here.
-John & Maria W, Norfolk, VA
Not only is the Joy Chalet charming and romantic, it is so centralized to all the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed Biltmore, Historic Hendersonville, the Flat Rock Theatre, and more - all within minutes from our wonderful home away from home.
-Bob and Bonnie, Canton, Ohio
This is truly the best vacation property we have stayed in! Stephanie and Robert have thought of everything. You will not be disappointed. Everything was clean, we enjoyed the movie collection, the screened in porch, the new gas grill out back, the hot tub, the comfortable bed....also the little things like scissors, paper, scotch tape, umbrellas, flash lights....just to name a few....it is just like home. If you are thinking about going to the Asheville area, this a very good location....nice quiet neighborhood of chalets....we had a wonderful week at the Joy Chalet.
-Lou and Linda G, Gastonia, NC
Loved the Joy Chalet! This was our 2nd stay in one of Stephanie & Robert's vacation rentals. We were just as please with the Joy Chalet as we were with our first visit. The home is beautifully decorated and includes all of the amenities you would ever need. Just as if being at home - with the added bonus of a hot tub and a massage chair, and a wonderfully comfortable bed!
This house is just perfect for two. The location is convenient to all of the wonderful attractions in the area. Just a few mins down the interstate nearby and you are in Asheville, or the other direction to Hendersonville & Flat Rock. Brevard County is close with all the wonderful waterfalls you can hike to. Chimney Rock and Lake Lure are a short drive - and worth a vist. We drove to Linville Caverns, Linville Falls (both awesome) and stopped at the "top" of the Eastern US (Mt. Mitchell) on the way back. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs nearby.
We also went gem mining on this visit - plenty of those places to choose from that are less than 2 hrs away.
I know I'll be calling for another reservation here when I plan my next trip to the NC mountains. Thanks Stephanie & Robert for offering such delightful "homes away from home"
-Dawn, North Carolina
What a wonderful, quiet, peaceful retreat! It was everything we hoped for and more! Incredible attention to detail. We felt very much at home. Very thorough information on what to do and see in this area. Every need was anticipated. Asheville is a surprisingly cosmopolitan area, surrounded by great natural beauty. Thank you for providing such a lovely spot for us!
-Bob & Gretchen, Venice, FL
The minute we walked into the house, it felt like home. The warmth and charm reflected the hospitality of the owners. Relief from the Florida heat to the beauty of the forests and mountains and beautiful weather was a big plus. We can't express enough how free of tension we were. We also loved the people we talked to. They were so friendly and warm. We will tell our friends about the Joy Chalet so they can enjoy it as much as we did!
-The Friedmans, Boynton Beach, FL
There is no reason to stay in a hotel in the Asheville area! Stephanie and Robert have thought of everything. We stayed at the Joy Chalet for our week in North Carolina and found it met our every need. Every conceivable amenity was provided to make our stay comfortable. The location of the house is perfect for exploration in the surrounding towns. Each day was an adventure and tired as we were, it was wonderful to come back to the Chalet each night and enjoy all the comforts of home. I would highly recommend the Joy Chalet and we would definitely stay here again!
-Linda and Gary R, Wellington, Fl
