“Absolutely Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2011

We were heading south from Indiana with no destination for our anniversary and we found an opening with Asheville Swiss Chalets so we directed to North Carolina. We stayed in the Upper Berne and it was absolutely fabulous. Everything you would possibly need. Very Nice Bravo!

We stayed in Beau cottage for 3 nights and it was pretty much perfect in every way. Great location, felt like a home from home. Has everything we could have needed, and more! Highly recommended.

My wife and stayed here for 3 nights, along with our two small dogs. We wanted to find a pet-friendly place to stay in Asheville, and found the Swiss Chalets online. We initially had planned to come up last November, but my wife got sick - Judy immediately issued us a "credit" and said we could reschedule our visit at any time, which we did the first week in May 2011. When we walked in the door, we were amazed right off the bat with the chalet layout: a nice living room, great master bedroom, a fully functional kitchen and a patio/deck. Judy thought of EVERYTHING someone might need, right down to the dog bowl and spices in the pantry! The place was immaculate and a great value - we would stay again in a heartbeat! If you do go, be sure to visit the deli/bakery in Weaverville where the cookies you receive at check-in are made - delicious food.

We were more than a little worried traveling with two teenage girls, my daughter and one of her friends! We walked in and they went directly to their room / mini suite and they proclaimed that it was "better then home!" When we were not out enjoying Asheville, we only saw them when they got hungry (thanks to the flat screen tv in their room)!

Thank you for your impeccable attention to detail and comfort! The chalet was beautiful! The bedding was super soft and comfy! We loved having internet hookup, a dishwasher and laundry facilities!

Thanks for the yummy cookies and coffee, we also enjoyed our visit to your cafe! Thank you for making our stay so relaxing!

We have been permanently traveling for almost 2 years so we have stayed in a wide variety of accommodations ---- hotels, bed and breakfasts, vacation rentals, and inns --- and Asheville Swiss Chalets is amongst the best, especially for those traveling with dogs.

Human-Friendly:
We stayed in the Beau Cottage, a petite two bedroom, one bath house (approximately 1200 square feet, we estimated), with a fenced in yard and deck. The house was pristine and fully equipped, down to extra light bulbs, batteries, washing detergent, and tupperware containers. You really don't need to bring anything other than your clothes and toiletry items (and they even have shampoo, soap, and conditioner, in case you forget yours). The house was beautifully decorated and we received two cookies from the Well Bred bakery as our welcome present.

The only negative to the house was that you don't get views of the mountains but it is surrounded by a lot of trees, meaning that it feels very secluded. Also, there is a very bright light right outside the bedroom. It wasn't a huge deal but it would have been nice if they had darker curtains to block out that light.

The location is fantastic, at about 3-minutes from downtown Asheville, 10 minutes to Biltmore Estate, and 20 minutes to Bent Creek and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Pet-Friendly:
On the pet-friendly side, we were very impressed that they included a small gate to enclose off the fence, pet towels, a pet blanket for the sofas, and a list describing dog parks. On the negative side, there is no good place to walk your dogs in the immediate vicinity of the house because the road is quite steep and has many blind curves. We wished that the Swiss Chalets had a dog park area that all of the residents could use.

That being said, there are incredible pet-friendly walks and hikes within a 5-15 minute drive but you need to know that these places exist because otherwise it's easy to end up at the two main dog parks (Azalea and French Broad - Azalea is by far better and larger but neither dog park is particularly fantastic). If you travel with your dog and enjoy taking him/her for walks, I highly recommend visiting:
- Biltmore Estate (the best easy walks in the area for dogs);
- Bent Creek Experimental Forest (loved this walk but mind the bikers on the weekends and evenings)
- Blue Ridge Parkway - there are tons of hikes on the Blue Ridge Pkwy but the best thing to do is to get onto the Pkwy and go toward the South. You can stop anywhere by the side of the road and start walking. The Southern part of the Asheville stretch of the Blue Ridge has less steep trails, making it a better option for canine hikers.

All that being said, if you have the time, the one hike I would absolutely recommend with your dogs is the Max Patch. On a clear day, pack a picnic, get the dogs in the car, and drive the hour to the NC/TN border. Google Max Patch to get directions but, suffice it to say that this is our favorite dog-friendly hike in the United States. Not only is it incredibly safe for dogs with very few steep turn-offs, the entire path is carpeted in lush green grass making it a joy for dogs to romp, and the views at the top made us feel like we were at the top of the world.

All in all, you can't go wrong staying at the Asheville Swiss Chalets, whether you travel with or without your canine companion. We highly recommend it and will certainly stay with them again when we are in the Asheville area.

My husband, myself and our 14 year old daughter stayed in the upper floor of the Zurich for 3 days. My parents came to visit on the 2nd day, to go to Biltmore. We all LOVED the Zurich. It was peaceful and relaxing. The deck has an amazing view at night, being able to see all the beautiful lights in Asheville. The beds were very comfortable and the Zurich has another room with a pull out couch sleeper that our daughter used. She loved the room so much that she asked to stay in it instead of the regular bedroom. Judy thinks of everything, by leaving delicious treats from the bakery, M&Ms, and coffee beans. The chalet has everything in the kitchen you need to cook. We prepared dinner and a big breakfast. We would definitely stay at the Swiss Chalets again.
