The home's setting is picturesque as the home is carved into a mountainside and there is a forest behind the house and a swimming and fishing lake just steps away. The lower porch has a brook that runs underneath of it that offers soothing sounds to calm the mind . You’ll also have easy access to everything the Great Smoky Mountain region has to offer, including opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback riding, boating, fishing, white-water rafting, shopping, dining, sightseeing and more. The Nantahala National Forest and Lake Fontana, the Fontana Dam and the Great Smokey Mountain Railway are some of the many favorite things to do that are super close to the chalet.

About Michelle Shelby Spinneweber

I go by Shelby and I am a sagittarius:) Which makes me a lover of travel and adventure . I like to write, read, eat really good food in really nice or really unusual restaurants, and listen to all kinds of music (country, jazz, blues, classical, old rock) I appreciate a finely crafted cocktail and prefer 'top shelf'. My husband and I have 10 horses (mostly quarter horses) and we like to trail ride at the beach and numerous state parks. I am a fan of camping. I would like to work on the 'glamping' thing. I work full time as a realtor in NE Florida. I specialize in St. Augustine which is the oldest city in the US! My work keeps me really busy but I like it as I get to work with buyers and sellers from all different walks of life and I get to see a lot of nice homes. I like renovation projects best as I love to see an old home with good bones get new life. In early life I grew up on 40 acres in Pennsylvania. I moved to S. Florida in the 80's and now live near St. Augustine, FL.

Why Michelle Shelby Spinneweber chose Bryson City Area

From the moment I first walked in this home I was enchanted. I loved the huge stone fireplaces, the sprawling outdoor spaces, the amazing lake views, and the icing on the cake was when i first heard and saw the babbling brook running under the deck. I found this place to be so peaceful and I had to make it mine and I also wanted to share it with others.

What makes this chalet unique

Super close to NOC, Lake Fontana, Smokey Mountain Railroad. Super easy access on a paved road with plenty of room to park vehicles and or a boat. Really quiet and peaceful setting but so close to so many wonderful things to do!

Best place to vacation 3rd year in a row!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year in a row at the Chalet. We never want to leave. It is a beautiful quiet place with all the comforts of home. Shelby is always great to us! The home is always very clean and supplied with everything we need. If I could I would stay for a couple weeks or a month!! Our dogs are welcome as well and that is a major plus. The lake is beautiful to look at and to fish out of. We have never been anywhere else that we have went back to year after year until we found the Chalet. I could go on and on but you just have to see it for yourself, it is great! Thank you again Shelby!!

Lots of room,very peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

Older home with some updates. A little misleading about the "pond" we thought we were going to be by the lake. The kids loved the paddle boat & overall we had a great time.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a nice time at Herons Haven Lakeside Chalet. I am sorry you were disappointed in the lake. It is directly across the street from the chalet and a short leisurely walk to the dock where you can enter for swimming or tubing. I hope you took advantage of the lot that I own down on the lake with the picnic table as that is a great place to drop a fishing line, have a picnic, or sit and read a book. Also if your preference was to enjoy a larger lake that would be suitable for boating Lake Fontana and two great boat rental places are just a five minute drive from the chalet. I hope to see you again.

Amazing home with everything you need:)

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! The house was very clean and we loved the hot tub, fire pit, screened in porch and the dock to sit on and look at the lake. Was a perfect spot to ride the motorcycle:)

Rest and Relaxation At Last

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice big rambling house and a great porch, it gave us so much room for privacy and communal areas. The photos caught my eye on the website, but the place was so much more. The property photos and description exceeded my expectations. It was very clean & well maintained. I was afraid it was not going to look that good in person. A lot of attention was given to detail in the decor and amenities. The bed was so comfortable and the porches overlooking the lake. Loved the well equipped kitchen. This was my first experience with a VRBO and based on the success of this trip it won't be the last. I will definitely be recommending this property to anyone I know going to the mountains. Very relaxing.

LOVE!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such a great time. It's comfortable, clean, and had everything needed. It was our first time there. We were very impressed and enjoyed the quiet time. The home was spacious. We almost wished we could live there year around. It was nice to have the screened porch and fireplaces. The hot tub was marvelous. Can't wait to go back!!!!
