Overview

About the property

Mountain Chalet - Resort Community

Spectacular views! This amazing chalet is located in a Canadian micro-climate that does not require air-conditioning (although it has both central AC and heat), and has a connection to a very special environment that includes deer, bear, and a variety of other creatures and foliage. Located in Alpine Village Resort nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains only three miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, this rental offers tranquil, secluded surroundings with spectacular mountain views at 3,250 feet in elevation in an aura of warm hospitality. The spacious and inviting clubhouse is open 24/7 while the heated swimming pool is open between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Outstanding views from your private deck. Our unit is the closest unit to the clubhouse, heated pool, and gas fire pit. Right out the front door, about 50 yards to edge of Pisgah National Forest is a trailhead to Mt. Mitchell and other interconnecting hiking trails. Beautifully appointed cottage (a duplex condo) with wood burning fireplace, Direct TV,

DVD player, NETFLIX, free long distance phone, free wireless internet access. Fully furnished. Great trout fishing within a mile, Mt. Mitchell Golf course within 2 miles, and several national and state parks are nearby offering hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails throughout the mountains.

Hal & Katherine Stokes purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Hal & Katherine Stokes chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

Katherine & I had been looking for a mountain retreat for a few years and knew we wanted a small cozy place in NC above 3000 ft. in altitude. After attending my oldest son's graduation from law school in Charlotte, NC we visited Burnsville and met with a real estate agent who by chance happened to show us Alpine Village Resort. One look at the outstanding views as we entered Alpine Village Resort and we were hooked. It's a beautiful hidden gem that only a few people know about. We're happy we can share this beautiful spot with you.

Peaceful and pristine

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a peaceful and quiet stay for four nights recently. Hiking and water activities are close by. The pool was a welcome feature. We had everything we needed to cook our meals (don't forget to stock up on food and beverages for your stay before heading up the mountain!) I met the owner, Katherine, upon our check in and the couple left us a tasty welcome snack. Thank you for sharing your home away from home with us.

Has everything you need! Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Finch 2 exceeded all expectations! The view is beyond amazing! Me and my daughter took hundreds of photos from the deck during our stay. Just as important, everything is there at your fingertips. I am convinced there is nothing you could forget (except basic food) that isn't provided for you. From spices to teas to kitchen utensils, to bath robes w/slippers, there is nothing you could forget that isn't already here. My 13 year old daughter, who is as picky as they come, was truly impressed. As was I!

Spectacular & Breathtaking Views in a Tranquil Setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! From the views from the deck to the quiet setting to all the comforts of home it was a perfect place to stay.

We are a family of three and the unit was the perfect size to give us together time and also allow for privacy when desired. In addition to time at the unit we took advantage of the pool and clubhouse while there and both were very nice. The central location made it ideal as a home base for our days of exploring and hiking. There are many things to do in the area and the unit has a large binder with information on all of it.

The unit was fully stocked with anything you may need in case you may have forgotten to bring it with you. The owners truly thought of everything. Their attention to detail and comfort was above and beyond what might be expected.

When it came time to leave we truly didn't want to go. We've already started to plan our next escape to this wonderful spot.

The property was as amazing as the views. It has everything you will need for a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

The views all around were breathtaking. The chalet had all the amenities of home and a great cozy feel. Definitely big enough for the whole family. The kitchen and grill provided made it nice to have a home cooked meal and enjoy it on the patio set on the back deck while overlooking the mountains. This was our honeymoon destination and we could not have picked a better spot to enjoy it.

Charming home, amazing views, and a heated pool nearby made for a great long weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Charming home, amazing views. Right next to the resort pool (salt water, heated). We hiked each day, then came back to the cabin and swam in the pool in the early evening. The owners were very nice and quick to answer our questions.
