“Lovely views, convenient location, and dog friendly. Some minor issues, though.”
Reviewed 18 November 2010

This year we stayed for the third time at the Asheville Swiss Chalets, and as usual, we were impressed with the gorgeous views outside the cabin and the cozy atmosphere inside the cabin. We enjoyed the 30-minute walk downtown with our dog, and of course, our dog loved lounging on the sofa (atop the provided furniture cover). We also enjoyed the delicious cookies from the owner’s bakery. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and other conveniences, such as sugar, coffee creamer, a coffee bean grinder, and measuring spoons. We recommend taking a walk up Windswept Drive for the great exercise and the panoramic views near the top of the mountain.

In past years, we were impressed with the care taken to prepare the cabin, right down to the smallest details. This year, we were a little disappointed with the following minor issues: When we arrived in the late afternoon, famished and ready to eat the take-out dinner we had brought, we found the dishes in the cupboard were soaking wet. There were pools of water on the plates, in the bowls, and under the glasses. I had to run the small dishwasher through several cycles to re-wash all the dishes. In addition, the remote control for the TV in the living room apparently had been chewed up by a previous canine guest. Also, though we had provided feedback in previous years about the lack of a convenient place to take our dog on potty breaks, we did not see that the issue had been rectified. Throughout our stay, our dog had to potty on narrow strips of grass and sometimes thorny brambles on the side of the road. It was especially difficult at night to find a good place for her to go. One last thing is the amount of brick-a-brack throughout the cabin. It certainly does create a homey look, but it dramatically cuts down on the amount of usable surface space. I ended up going through the entire cabin the first day, moving the decorative items to other areas so we could use the coffee table, side table, and what little space there was in the bathroom.

Despite our small disappointments, we still enjoyed our stay, and we recommend the Swiss Chalets, especially if you want to bring your dog.

I am so glad we stayed here! This was the perfect location- about a 5 minute drive to downtown, and 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. However, the chalet we stayed in - the "Geneva"- felt very secluded and private in the way it is arranged. Gorgeous view. The Geneva is small, but I felt like we had everything we needed, including kitchen essentials. You can tell a lot of thought was put into really making the space work and making sure the guest doesn't want for anything. I was really impressed with everything.

My husband and I and our three small dogs travel across the country throughout the year. Swiss Chalets is honestly the best place we have ever stayed. The location and proximity to all attractions, restaurants, etc is perfect. Our cabin was VERY clean and the entire family (yes, even the dogs) were given the warmest welcome. They honestly think of everything. They provide the basics like coffee, spices along with being fully equiped. Our view was incredible. The cabins are built into the side of a hill so we felt as though we were in a tree house. The property is so beautiful.

The owners and staff honestly care that you are happy. We forgot our dogs leashes and before we were gone 10 minutes I had a phone call letting us know we had forgotten then. And if you travel with dogs - you know you need the leashes.

I definetly will come back to visit Asheville and I will recommend to all my family and friends to stay at the Swiss Chalets. There is nothing better out there!!!

Keep up the good work Judy and team - we REALLY appreciate yall!

We just got back from Switzerland in the Alps - feels similar !! You will like the Swiss Chalets in the hills of Asheville in a little private road. The houses/apartments are very tastefully decorated. The owner Judy thinks of every little thing you may want. There was even plenty of spices, sauces either left over or supplied. I believe if you find you have forgotten something she would find a way of getting it for you. There is plenty of room for your things, and because it was so cosy we chose to stay in most evenings and prepare our own food. It was fun and we saved some money doing that. We would go back. Thank you.

My wife and I (and dog) stayed at the Geneva for our 1 year wedding anniversary and we had the greatest time. The chalet itself was perfect, we could'nt ask for anything better and definitely beats stayin in any hotel. The chalet was very clean and cozy and came with all the ammenities of home. We spent alot of time on the balcony enjoying the great weather when we were'nt out exploring asheville and everything the city and surrounding areas has to offer. I recommend the Geneva to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in a wondeful town. We will be back next October

Stayed in the full Zurich chalet which provided plenty of space for our party of 6. Rooms were clean and very modern. Would highly recommend.

We recently stayed in the Interlaken Chalet at the Asheville Swiss Chalets. We were very impressed with the beauty and cleanliness of the chalet. The interior is decorated very tastefully with beautiful hardwood floors and very nice furnishings. There are 2 bedrooms with only 1 bathroom. 2 bathrooms would have been ideal, but 1 bathroom worked out fine for us. The location is high up a mountain, yet only 3 miles from downtown Asheville. It's above Tunnel Road, so unfortunately you can hear the traffic if you sit out on the porch -- but inside you don't hear it at all. It's an ideal location for getting onto the Blue Ridge Parkway and for easily getting to all the wonderful areas around and in Asheville. The owner also owns a bakery in nearby Weaverville, which is an excellent place to have lunch or to get more of the absolutely delicious cookies that they leave as a sample for you when you arrive. In my opinion, this is an excellent place to stay in Asheville!
