About Chuck Perry

As a native North Carolinian, it has always been a dream of mine to own a home in the High Country of NC. While attending college at East Carolina University I was on the tennis team and in the outdoor club. I often found myself backpacking, climbing and exploring in and exploring around the Linville area. When I discovered the Birch Lane Chalet (BLC) and Land Harbor, I knew I had found the perfect moutain getaway. Paddling, swimming, golf, cycling, climbing, hiking are all available within minutes of the BLC. There is something for everyone no matter your age or interest.

My career has taken me to more metropolitan areas in our state so until I can call the BLC my permanent residence it is my pleasure to share my home away from home with you. I invite you to visit the BLC, play, relax and come back. Your adventure starts at my doorstep. Alison

Why Chuck Perry chose North Carolina

Whatever season you choose has its special beauty. Springtime brings its new promise of blossoms and green. Summertime at 4,000 feet elevation gives wonderful mountain breezes and the exquisite profusion of white and pink rhododendron. Autumn brings the explosion of fall colors to Avery County mountains and winter brings the pristine quiet snow and skiing/snowboarding at Sugar or Beech Mountain close by.

What makes this chalet unique

-all the modern conveniences of home

-close to restaurants, shops and outdoor activities

-hiking on site, swimming pool, fishing and golf

-2 miles from YMCA with all indoor amenities

Nice impromptu getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at BLC and would gladly stay again.

Chuck helped us out with a same day reservation so my wife and I could sneak out of town for a few days. The chalet was clean, comfortable, and generally well-stocked. There was plenty of cookware, dishes, and utensils in the kitchen. There were plenty of towels but lacking a few other toiletries (TP, soap. Though we never told Chuck as we were prepared.) The queen bed upstairs was comfortable and the other furniture was as well. It's a nice place.

If anyone has mobility troubles, note that the steps to the deck entrance (keypad location) are quite steep, but the back is only a few normally-sloped stairs. If it has been wet (as it was during our visit), the decking can get slick, which is normal. Just FYI.

The location is in a nice planned community with a stocked lake, swimming pool, paddle boats (included!), among other clubhouse activities. I highly recommend Habaneros nearby for inventive tacos and sliders. It is an unassuming food truck alongside a gas station. Delicious. Valle de Bravo in Linville, however, is an insult to Mexican cooking. Next time we'll arrive earlier so we can have a better first meal.

It was quite warm and humid during our stay. The BLC does not have air conditioning, which made it a little sticky at times. But with plenty of fans and open, screened windows it was still quite pleasant.

The cabin is great and in a great location for availing the activities at the recreation center. All the porches were great Everything we needed was supplied. The only slight issue is that the single beds upstairs are not real comfortable but overall would highly recommend this chalet. Linville Land Harbor is lovely and the whole surrounding area is breathtaking. Pat and Jim Johnson

Just 20 minutes for Sugar Mountain. We had a blast & we got some snow! Chuck was very helpful and stayed in contact with us prior to our arrival. All in all, we had a great expirence and hope to visit again!

This was a cute 3 bedroom house in a nice community with a lake, walking trails, tennis courts and more. The house itself was comfortable and updated with a well stocked kitchen. We had a great time for our thanksgiving get away!

Annual Mountains Trip

  • 5 of 5

The home was, as Goldilocks would say, just the right size.

The bed I slept in was very comfortable as well as the atmosphere.

We felt secure in our surroundings and walked over to the recreation area and viewed the Lake and walked the trails there.

We were very pleased and we give this a 5 star due to the affordable price and area it was in.

Not Secluded, but not busy! Just the way I like it!

Thanks Chuck for a great home away from home!

Get Away From The Summer Heat

  • 5 of 5

This is just the perfect place to get away from the summer heat. Loved the mountain cool air for hiking and exploring the surrounding area. The BLC was so conveniently located to the Linville Land Harbor amenities and facilities, some within walking distance. Chuck was a great source for information when it was needed.

Or enjoy the on site gorgeous mountain Golf Course on site has 18 holes and over 5,153 yards with a par of 69. Enjoy our swimming pool during the warm summer months. Please inquire about the tennis facilities.

You can go fishing in our 48 acre trout-stocked lake or fly fish in the pristine river.

Multiple hiking trails within walking distance from the chalet around the lake or along the river with its tiny waterfalls or go hiking around Grandfather mountain and Linville Gorge, visiting Linville Falls and Caverns and driving along the spectacular Blue Ridge Parkway will all add to your very memorable experience.

Being close to Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk gives many choices of shopping & restaurants. Blowing rock has a charming downstairs with Tangier Factory outlets.

The opportunities for hikers of all levels are too numerous to mention. With the Blue Ridge parkway and the Appalachian trail nearby you will have many choices.

There are also wonderful on site fishing spots and mountain bike trails just around the corner.

Be sure to bring a daypack, your binoculars, and camera, and get ready for a wonderful getaway at The Birch Lane Chalet.
