What Past Guests Are Saying
My husband and I enjoyed staying at the "Joy" Chalet so much. We took everything we thought we would need. Turns out all we need was our clothes. Everything we could have dreamed of needing was in the chalet. The attention to detail, from plastic wrap to the hair dryer was provided, it was absolutely amazing. The chalet is so beautiful. We appreciated the brochures of all the places to eat, the activities(and there is a lot to do) and maps. We will most definitely be back there. Stephanie is absolutely the nicest lady in ashville. She is very attentive to all your needs. So glad we chose ashville and the "Joy" Chalet.
Wonderful week at the Joy Chalet
We had a wonderful stay at the Joy Chalet. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and massage chair after a day of hiking. One thing that was particularly gratifying was how well organized everything was - it felt like any question a guest could have was anticipated and answered (where to eat, what to do, how things work, etc.). It's a perfect place to relax and enjoy.

What a wonderful place to stay!!
We had never been to the asheville area before. We were not disappointed. First of all the Joy cabin was wonderful! Easy to find, close to everything and perfect for 2 people. We had a wonderful living room sitting area with a fireplace. The kitchen was much larger than we thought it would be and with great appliances!! We enjoyed the hot tub and the bed was great upstairs. We slept the first morning till after 8 am!! We don't usually do that. The shower was great also there were lots of hangers and a big closet. It was nice to have the 2 day Biltmore pass waiting for us. We really enjoyed Biltmore. We will come back and would recommend Joy highly to stay at..the Blue Ridge Parkway was amazing..

Joy Chalet is everything you would want or need in a vacation ho
It was the first time we ever stayed in a rental home and we were so glad we did. Nothing was overlooked at Joy Chalet. Hot tub, grill and the amazing massage chair. A very cozy home.
The area is just lovely and it made us start a discussion about moving to the asheville area where there are seasons but much milder than where we live now.

Trip to Western North Carolina
Very nice, clean and inviting cabin. Stephanie was a joy to work with and very willing to please us.
Convenience to the airport was important and we were just close enough and yet not bothered with noise.
House hunting all day was tiring but it was so nice to come back to a quiet and relaxing atmosphere.
Relaxing and restful, just like home without the stress!
We stayed at the Joy Chalet for a week in July. It was delightful. The house was comfortable and included all the comforts of home. We made good use of the kitchen and patio/hot tub. Everything was clean and intuitive and made us feel like we were being taken care of.
It is convenient to asheville and Hendersonville and Brevard and many of the places we wanted to go, Biltmore and Blue Ridge Parkway. We spent the week exploring and it was a great base to explore from.
We always enjoyed coming home at night and relaxing in our lovely house.
A wonderful place to stay
Joy Chalet was the perfect place for our week in the asheville area. Quiet residential area with a wooded back yard, yet close to the city, makes this a perfect location. The chalet is clean and well-maintained. It had everything we needed for cooking, picnicking and relaxing. We will definitely stay here again for our future visits to asheville.
Everything you could think of - and more
What a lovely, comfortable, indulgent, immaculate place to stay. I enjoyed a week on my own at Joy Chalet, and explored the asheville area with ease from its great location - Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore, Asheville and Hendersonville all so easy to get to. Totally spoiled for choice with nearby restaurants and the house has a huge kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals. One day it poured rain all day and I decided to just stay in and relax, moving from the hot tub to the massage chair to the huge, comfortable couch in the living room - bliss! The back yard is lovely, very green with a beautiful ivy covered tree and birdsong all day long.
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 ashville 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 décor 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 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.
First time lodgers here. This is a very accessible property, surprisingly close to the asheville airport. Everything was as advertised. The owners have covered a lot of details in their extensive resource folder. The chalet was well appointed, clean and very comfortable.
Cheryl and Bob
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!
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.
Marty & Sherry S.
Wow! The Joy Chalet was our home away from home..
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.
Comfortable Cabin, Close to asheville
The Joy Chalet is a cozy cabin with a suite of amenities. It seems to be kept very clean, and is well appointed for relaxing indoors and out. It is located next to several other cabins outside of asheville, well within driving distance to asheville itself or other attractions such as the Biltmore. That said, I was imagining it to be a bit more isolated, but perhaps the compromise between isolation and driving distance is something that can't realistically be resolved.
What a way to relax.
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!!
Hallandale Beach, Florida
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 admitteldly 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 devine. 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 ot 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.

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!
Paul and Carol
Everything you need, and then some!
We were extremely pleased with our stay at Joy Chalet. Everything we could have askd 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!!!
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.
The house was nicely decorated, and the woodsy setting was lovely. The location was very acessible to the airport and not too far from Blue Ridge Parkway access. The kitchen was very well stocked. We didn't spend too much time at the home itself, as we were mostly touring the Parkway.
Ashley R. Cavenaugh Messier
This was the most relaxing atmosphere for our honeymoon. Everything that we needed was there and the chalet is so centrally located to everything, you are literally 20 minutes to an hour away from all of the attractions, it is wonderful. At the end of a long day just take a relaxing soak in the hot tub or wake up to the wild turkey's walking around in your backyard, no matter what this is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the mountains.

Spectacular Lodging and Vacation!
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, convenient, 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
Joy Chalet was exactly as described. The owners have thought of everything a guest could possibly need during their stay. The chalet is clean, well-furnished and comfortable. Although we spent most of the daytime hours in asheville, we looked forward to returning to the Chalet to rest and enjoy the hot tub.
St. Louis, MO
Had a fabulous stay...couldn't have been happier!
We couldn't have been happier with our stay. The Joy Chalet provided everything we needed to relax and be pampered after long days of hiking, horseback riding, swimming, etc. It was so helpful to have a well-stocked kitchen in terms of pots,
pans, and appliances; it made it easy to cook for ourselves throughout the week. Everything was extremely clean and comfortable, and it made for a fabulous week!
Fantastic Home away from Home! with so many extras!
David and I stayed at the Joy Chalet Sept 11-20th, 2010. We knew this was going to be a fabulous place from the pictures, but we were totally shocked at how much better in person it truely is. The location is perfect, seclued and peaceful, but still very easy access to everthing around. There is so much to see and do in this beautiful area of this country. The chalet is equipped with everything you will need. We really enjoyed the hot tub after a day of sightseeing. Thanks Stephanie and Robert for sharing your lovely home.
Wonderful Week at the Joy Chalet
This is truly the best vacation property we have stayed in. Stephanie and Robert have thought of everything. You will not be diasppointed. Everything was clean. We enjoyed the movie collection, the screened-in porch, new gas grill out back hottub, and comfortable bed. Also, the little things like scissors, paper, scotch tape, to name a few. It is just like home! If you are thinking about going to the asheville area, this is a very good location, with a nice quiet neighborhood of chalets. We had a wonderful week at the Joy Chalet.
Virginia Beach, Va
The Joy Chalet was the perfect place for our honeymoon. The home was beautifuly 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!
Morehead City, NC
Comfortable, Convenient and spoiled us rotten
Loved the Joy Chalet! This was our 2nd stay in one of Stephanie & Robert's vacation rentals (stayed next door in their Dream Chalet in Nov '09). We were just as pleased 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"
Roy & Jan
What a wonderful place to relax! It was absolutely perfect! The home was beautifully decorated and definitely made you feel as though you were in your own home. Stephanie and Robert are the perfect hosts, from the guest book with things to see and do, places to go and even a grocery savings card. You don't find these amenities in hotels or condos. Simply the best!!! I would recommend to anybody to stay at homes owned by Stephanie and Robert, you won't be sorry, you will be spoiled!!!
