The Woodlands Chalet was a wonderful environment for a group of retirees, plenty of individual rooms for sleeping, Brea’s typically well appointed and perfect decor – everything works, is clean, beautiful and the view! the hot tub! Just like the pictures and more. Our 2nd time renting from Brea and we look forward to more trips at her properties. The downstairs allows for someone or a family to have their own little apartment.

We spent the last week of April, 2021 at the Woodland Chalet and couldn’t have had a better experience. The location is beautiful, private, quiet, and we were surrounded by trees just leafing out. The view was as advertised. In fact, the entire house was as advertised. The house was spotless and well furnished. The towels and bed linens were luxurious. The kitchen was well appointed. Brea left ample instructions for all the mechanicals, including the hot tub, which we used in the cool evenings. Getting to the house was an adventure that will make a good story for years to come. It isn’t nearly as difficult as we made it. I would love to stay there again.

We stayed at this cabin 7 years ago and we’re so happy to return. Brea is a fantastic host and provides thorough information prior to the stay to ensure you are prepared for your trip. The cabin is clean, comfortable, and peaceful. Enjoy the incredible views from the hot tub!

We stayed for 5 nights in the wonderful Woodland Chalet in Fairview and would highly recommend this as a place to stay if you want to explore North Carolina. The hosts were very attentive and we felt very welcome. The view is incredible from the balcony and one of our favourite things to do on our stay was eat breakfast as a family on the balcony admiring the beautiful view. Another bonus were the fireflies at night.. the kids thought this was magical!

David & Brea
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your absolutely amazing mountain getaway home for our girls weekend  It was so nice to be able to get to see each other in this neutral location and be able to eat good food.  Sit and chat, do some yoga (in the living room with our own amazing yogi!) and simply enjoy each other in such a gorgeous setting.  We couldn’t have asked for more, especially with the hot tub and snow.  We even hiked “Mount Everest” aka the Arrowhead Trail and back up the road!  All in all, it was fabulous and we may just have to do it again, Namaste

Brea, We had a fabulous time at the Woodlands Chalet, and it was the ideal spot to regroup after several long days of shopping and sight-seeing in the Asheville area. We celebrated the 65th birthday of our friend, Betty, in style and surrounded by tranquility — sunny afternoons on the top deck, under an Indian Summer sky, were some of our best times. Thanks so much for all you did to make our journey and stay a pleasant one — your organizational skills, attention to details and thoroughness made all the difference in our experience. I’m passing this letter on to other members in our group in case they care to submit comments, photos or purchase sheets.  I didn’t take any pictures… the memories, sights, smells of the mountain are safely tucked away in my treasure box of favorite things. If I’m fortunate enough to make it back again, it will always feel like home to me. From beginning to end, thanks for everything Brea and David!!

Our stay at the Woodlands Chalet could not have been better, unless of course we had been able to stay longer.  The house is so beautifully furnished and well equipped.  It was the perfect place to come home to after a day at the Biltmore or hiking.  It was also a great place to stay with teenage boys who enjoyed having the loft to the themselves.   Very comfortable and relaxing and close of to town to enjoy the great restaurants there.  Thanks again to Brea for making everything so easy, from reservations to making sure we had everything we could possibly need, to the quick refund of our security deposit.  She could not have been more helpful.  We would definitely stay here again if we are ever in the Asheville area.

We have just spent a wonderful week at the Woodlands Chalet.  It was an amazing vacation to North Carolina.  The mountains are so rejuvenating.  We went on many hikes in the area and are attempting to teach our small children the joys of the outdoors.  Our kids called Woodlands Chalet their “tree house” and had so much fun playing on the deck and building fires in the evening.  They also loved sleeping upstairs in the loft.  Their own little haven!  We will miss the quiet setting here.  It’s a beautiful home that allows for true relaxation.  We look forward to many more trips to the Asheville area in the future. Thank you for sharing your incredible home with us!!

What a magical place!  Far exceeded our expectations.  Thank you Brea and your beloved for this opportunity.  We would be back in a heart beat!  The hot tub has such beautiful views and the wrap around porch is unbelievable.  Hiked today on Blue Ridge Parkway Rattlesnake trail head to Mountain-to-Sea trail, fantastic hike, challenging and great exercise!!  Asheville is such a unique town.  Salsa’s = great Mexican fusion restaurant.  Thank you for such great accommodations and a perfect vacation.  We will be back again sooner than later!

We celebrated our 20 year anniversary here and loved every minute of it. We WILL be back!! Dale and Leann Ft.Mill, SC Spent a week at this great mountain home.  The weather was perfect and a relaxing time was had by all.  Jason and Amy were along for trip as well and had an incredible time visiting with us.  But especially big brother Gavin soon to be 3 years old next week and little brother gunner who is 19 months old.  Thanks for sharing this great spot in our world with us!

We had an amazing weekend, 4 friends (both newlyweds) from Atlanta, GA and Carboro,k NC.  Your chalet was the perfect meeting point for both couples.  Everything exceeded our expectations during our stay…except of course the bedframes when we all managed to bang our knees on.  Our memories will surely outlast our bruises (haha, just kidding).  Although, it may have had something to do with the fifth of vodka we finished on the first night.  The hot tub, views, decorations – everything was top notch!  We will definitely be back for our next 30-something get together again.  Thank you so much!

What a wonderful escape!!  This was an ideal spot to shake off th worries of the world and work and focus on what’s really important.  Thank you for such a relaxing few days!
Jason & Laura Atlanta, GA

This is a great getaway place.  We came to celebrate our 30th anniversary with a concert at the Biltmore (Steve Miller Band).  Had three great days relaxing.  Hot tub was glorious!  Decor is very appealing and love the comfortable bed.  Hope to be back soon.
Rick & Monette Taylorsville, NC

On our honeymoon.  We love this cabin!  Recommend:  Cocktail hour on the deck, take a dip in the French Broad River, visit the Troyer Amish Store, spend a minimum of two hours a day in the hot tub.  Thanks for a wonderful, memorable vacation!

Brea and David, Thank you so much!  We had such an enjoyable stay at your home and we will definitely try to come back again!  We did go hiking and walk through down town Asheville.  The views were great! Thank you again!

What an amazing weekend!  Thank you so much for everything.  The cabin was perfect, and the mountains were glorious.  We all wish that we did not have to leave.  Once again, thank you for everything and we hope to see you soon.
Andrea G. Raleigh, NC

We loved your Woodlands Chalet!  The views are spectacular!  It was definitely “our home” away from home for the weekend.  We would love to return when we have more time to enjoy the many wonders of the mountain.  God surely blessed us with this family trip.  Thank you so much!
