Fantastic Girls Weekend in the Mountains

Rated 5 out of 5
April 12, 2021

We had an amazing weekend in the mountains! We were a group of 6 and Chalet Quietude was the perfect size for our group. Everyone had a bed to sleep in (all the reviews of the sheets are REAL) and the common areas were comfortable and cozy. During our stay, we hung out at the chalet, enjoyed the hot tub one night, went on a nearby hike about 20 minutes away, and went into downtown Asheville for some drinks, food, and of course beer! It was the perfect home base for the weekend. The home is stocked with everything you would ever need, and our group prepared a few meals while we were there.
I will say that the drive up to the house is not for the faint of heart! It’s a super steep and supper narrow drive, so come prepared for that. Also, Uber and Lyft won’t come pick you up from the house, so I highly suggest booking a car service if you need a designated driver for any portion of your stay. We were able to get an Uber home for one of the nights, but we had to leave a car in town overnight.
All in all, it was an amazing long weekend and I will most definitely plan to book future stays at one of Brea’s properties. She went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed before and during our trip. Thanks Brea!


Perfectly-appointed beautifully furnished cabin with amazing views!

We love staying in Brea and David’s immaculate properties, and Chalet Quietude was no exception! We had the best Thanksgiving in this perfectly-appointed cabin. The cabin was spotlessly clean. The views are breathtaking. It is very quiet and private. The hot tub has an awesome view. There are DVDs and TV apps to utilize. It was perfect for family time!

Me and a couple friends went away for a guys weekend, and shocker we messed up the dates. Showed up a day early and the owners showed up to do work on the house. They were so understanding and told us not to worry, had a good chuckle and let us stay. The Mountain View’s were amazing at all points of the day and we were completely secluded. Look up asheville cabs on google if no lifts/ubers are available to take you into town. Ubers and lyfts will take you back to the house from downtown. We had such an amazing weekend and couldn’t recommend a place enough. If you want some privacy with amazing views and a beautiful house, this is it by 1,000

This cabin is picturesque. Every photo you take, it’s just the cabin and the woods. Despite driving past several neighbors to get to the location – you can’t see, or hear, a single one. We stayed for 3 nights, but wish we had more. The house was clean and well organized for guest use. 5 of us stayed comfortably. Getting out from the cabin to the main street took about 5 mins or so. Once out, all of the tourist attractions in Asheville were easy and to get to. In fact, the cabin seemed centrally located to everything we did.
I recommend anyone staying there, wake up about 45min to 1hr before sunrise. Brew some coffee, bundle up on the porch, and watch the clouds ebb and flow while the surrounding mountains and foliage reveal themselves.
We were fortunate (?) to see a morning bear only once. He was in the distance, but it was amazing. Brea mentioned in her instruction book that the bears will rustle the bushes and trees. Rustle they did – there was NO mistake!
Downsides? Nothing really. Getting out of the driveway was challenging for the first couple of times, but then it was simple. I’m not sure how multiple cars would work, so ask brea for advice on that.
And take advantage of the hot tub! Great view and fireflies at night. Nothing beats it.

A Piece of Heaven
My stay at Chalet Quietude was heavenly. Even more beautiful than the great website photos. So cozy and super clean. Everything was top quality… the bed linens were luxurious and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook some delicious meals. The front porch was a favorite hangout for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. Of course, the outdoor hot top topped off each evening. Even though the Chalet was so secluded and private, it was an easy drive into Asheville for lunch and hanging out. There’s so much to do and so much beauty everywhere we went. Brea was so sincere and thorough in everything… from detailed driving directions to a notebook filled with every logistical detail needed for a great stay. A lot of love went into creating this beautiful place! Will definitely return and have recommended it as a great getaway to my friends!

We had a great time at your cabin. It was all you advertised. The fire flies streaking across our room at night was eye opening. We will recommend your places.
Thanks again,

We can’t say enough about this place!! At Chalet Quietude, w/the views and stylish well-appointed interior, we were on top of the world. Brea creates a truly luxurious surrounding and what a pretty place to connect w family and friends!

We were greeted by butterfly-covered bushes as we pulled up to Chalet Quietude !  This was just one of so many special “over-the-top” touches of our time there.  So many amenities made our stay there especially special and enjoyable ….. from the totally stocked kitchen, to uber-comfy sheets, too many great movies to choose from  … even down to the gentle melody of the chimes by our table out on the deck.  Thanks so much, Brea, for the lovely getaway in the mountains ~ and we girls are already talking about coming back when the “young ones” reach their 60th!

Our time together at the chalet is one we will never forget.  the beautiful leaf colors, the wonderful still quiet and exploring the town of Asheville…We would like to make it an annual vacation and look forward to it even now. Thank you for providing such a tranquil getaway — it is so nicely decorated and we had everything we needed.
Til next time!

P.S. no bears, but 7 wild turkeys running around in the driveway – I’ll send pictures!

Although disappointed that we did not have the opportunity to meet the “bear” :)!!,   Chalet Quietude was everything that I could have hoped for. . . which was a wonderful getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily life…peace and tranquility.  Oh, have I missed a real wood burning fireplace!!!  It could have been warm these last couple of days and I would have found an excuse to make a fire 🙂
Thank you for sharing your home.  Think of the “gift” that you truly give to all of your guests.  A chance to relax, to  connect or re-connect, to celebrate special times,….moments to be cherished and remembered forever!
And I will definitely be ordering a “sheet set”. What a wonderful night’s sleep!
Again, thank you! We will definitely be back very soon.

What a wonderful place!  The views are spectacular.
We had a great time and hope Chalet Quietude is here for many more years to come.|The Joneses from Maryland

Merry Happy Thanskgiving Mas!  Our families came together to celebrate the holidays out here in the peace and quiet of the mountains. We all enjoyed our stay here very much and love to return again someday!  We hoped to go to the Biltmore House, but didn’t make reservations in advance so we couldn’t go. We also hoped to see a bear but had to settle for a group of wild turkeys instead. Best Wishes,

Sunrise, sunset — what lovely ways to begin and end these four days on your misty mountain refuge.  We love the panoramic views out the doors and windows.  The upper level birds and squirrels entertained us as only they can!
The Biltmore candlelight tour was awesome with harp music to inspire the next mile of walking!  The carriage ride from the barn yielded one buck (large rack) and five does — all feeding avidly.  A “rafter” of wild turkey flew into the pines and really strutted their stuff!  Awesome views of the estate.  We thoroughly enjoyed our/your chalet and its amenities.  Our youngest, Anna Jane (7), let us know that moon-lit spa swims were the best!
We were even inspired to cook creatively and chili a la Mary Hunter fed our mountain appetites.
Be safe all voyagers!

We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend in quietude.  Our only regret is that we didn’t have one more day.  The chalet was perfect — well stocked for every need.  Brea was most accommodating!
We broke away for just a few hours to enjoy the Pisgah Brewery in Black Mountain and to dine on Spanish tapas at Cirate in downtown Asheville.  Otherwise, no need to leave this wonderful quiet hideaway on the mountain top!|

Greetings.  This was our 2nd year in a row to Chalet Quietude and it did not disappoint.  Brea again outdid herself and could be nominated for saint hood.  the weather was nice and cold, but the accommodations in this peaceful cabin were more than we could ask for.  there is somethign really special about beginning a new year on top of a mountain, closer to peace is closer to God.
Thanks gain Brea and God bless to all and Happy 2012!!

What a gorgeous backdrop to our much-needed, spetacular week-long getaway.  Thank you, Brea, for having everything in place.  Wine by the fire each night will be missed.
