About Merrie M Wilner

We live in Florida and have camped and hiked in the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountain area for years, so it was only natural to find Connestee Falls the ideal location for a beautiful second home. No other area includes miles of hiking trails and a broad variety of amenities and activities. We share of love of the mountains and a desire to share our home with other within this very unique community.

Merrie M Wilner purchased this chalet in 1989

Why Merrie M Wilner chose Asheville Area

Treat yourself to private luxury surrounded by trees and wildlife in this cool mountain setting near the college town of Brevard, NC. Less than 45 minutes from the Ashville Airport, area is a real vacation find - an ecologically planned community, gated and well preserved. - summer hiking trails, BBQ on porch or at one of the nearby lakes. Swimming, golf, tennis, cycling, no end to activity or peaceful naps on the side porch. We desire the same for friends and travelers that share our love for the mountains in this unique setting.

What makes this chalet unique

This quiet, private getaway home was built on top of a hill, surrounded by trees. It has a fairly steep driveway and a spectacular, year round view. The kitchen area has just been renovated with all modern appliances, cabinets, and countertops, original wood burning fireplace remains extra source of heat downstairs. We have a steep driveway, a large variety of birds, and a family of turkeys on our next door lot, also wooded secluded.

Great Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We when with a a group of six adult men. Not the best planners in the world, the house being well supplied in the kitchen was fantastic. We liked that it had twin beds, so each could have a bed without sharing covers. The views were great, very peaceful setting. No neighbors insight. The neighborhood waterfall trails are better than the ones in the national forests, add in the ability to use some of the other amenities of the neighborhood we could have stayed all week. The owners were easy to work with and communicated well. All in all a great experience.

Older musty cottage up a very steep driveway.

  • 2 of 5

The cottage's musty smell hits you as soon as you open the door. The master bedrooms sheets were used, I had to strip the bed and find clean sheets before going to bed. The windows barely open and didn't stay open, after a day of keeping both doors open it started to loose the musty oder. The windows are not insulated you could hear every vehicle drive by. We encounter some bears in the yard, they found the orange peels thown in the leaves under the bushes. This home needs some TLC, elbow gease, fresh paint and more comfortable furniture. Every piece of furniture is outdated and overused. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your helpful comments. There is a fireplace just next to the inside of the front door, so the musty smell is coming from the fireplace. We will contact housekeeping as we always have plenty of clean sheets to be placed on the beds at all times and especially between guests. This is the first furniture complaint we have had, so thank you. Most guests report the furniture to be very comfortable. The porch sofa was new last year and the downstairs mattresses are new. We have a painter who is halfway finished with the exterior of the whole house and deck. Then Windows will be replaced after that. Ceiling fans move air in main room, porch, and upstairs. The upstairs master bath is new with slate in the shower, marble floor, new fixtures and faucets. As for the bears, they are all over the property, so we warn against leaving food out.

Absolutely perfect mountain cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four absolutely loved everything about our stay in this adorable home in Connestee Falls! The home itself was so charming and spotless! It had everything we needed. the screened in porch was delightful and it is easy to get into Brevard from this location. Merrie (owner) was incredibly responsive with any questions and so wonderful. We will definitely be back!

Great get-a-way home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing stay at this mountain home. It was minutes away from charming Brevard as well as many beautiful waterfalls. The house was so comfortable. It was the most well stocked vacation house I've ever stayed in. The owner was great to work with and was readily available if needed.

Great Space for family

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time at this house! The bedding was soft and comfy and the space was great for a family of 6 - we loved that there were so many twin beds instead of full and queen beds. The screened porch was a great place to drink coffee in the morning and even though we were mainly "unplugged" we appreciated the wifi, cable and netflix for occasional use.
