Chalet Quietude is an outstanding get away for those stressed out city folk like me. Nestled up high in the mountains this is a superb venue to enjoy the outdoors.

The view is stunning, both day and night and the sunrises are magnificent. We stayed over Christmas, but the temperature was more like May, with highs in the mid 60s and the nights only dipping to the 40s. No rain or any kind of precipitation marred our trips. We didn’t get out to do hiking, spending most of time in Asheville.

The road to the chalet can be a nail biter if you’re not used to mountain roads. The final mile is over a one lane paved road that passes several houses and is very steep. The chalet is at the end of this road, almost on a point. Luckily for us, we encountered no vehicles coming against us on any of our trips.

The chalet is very well equipped, with 3 bedrooms and is very clean and tidy. The internet works as advertised; we had no problems with anything.

Your about 20 minutes out from Asheville, a short scenic drive.

Overall, my family had a marvelous time and we would definitely return!

The Chalet was close to both Asheville and Black Mountain, yet private and quiet. We enjoyed great views, comfortable bedding and bathroom, and the hot tub was a great touch. I will book here again when we return.

When we finally arrived at the Château Quietude after about a 9 hour drive from Delaware, we were just overwhelmed by the beauty, nature and peaceful environment. Being from the East Coast we are very used to flat straight roads, the road up to the cabin was something really different for us! I have to say that the views from the deck at sunrise are absolutely breathtaking. We both love the mountains and hope to live in that area at some point. But this was just so special! The cabin was spacious and well-maintained, very comfortable. It was great that we could hop in the car and be in Asheville or Weaverville….. within 15 minutes or so. Brea is great to work with, we would highly recommend renting from her. Thank you offering such an awesome place, we hated to leave. Dawn

We loved our time at Chalet Quietude, waking up to see the colorfull mountain sky, every day was a show of natural beauty. Enjoying the quiet evenings on the deck after time in the city was so relaxing and special. I hope to return and relive our experience up in the mountain.Thanks Brea

Our family had a fabulous stay at Chalet Quietude. The house was clean, well-equipped, and fully functioning. We loved the gorgeous gardens, deck, and hot tub, and look forward to another stay. We even got to see a bear scurrying across the lane upon arrival.

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.

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.
