“Charming and great location”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Joy Chalet is totally charming and very centrally located. A great location to visit Asheville, Chimney Rock, the various national parks and waterfalls, and the beautiful towns in this area. The Chalet is fully equipted with everything you could possibly want. We especially enjoyed watching the bunnies and birds from the screened in patio in the morning over coffee.

Quiet cottage surrounded by nature. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The hot tub was very relaxing. Everything was up to our standards and as advertised. The information provided about the property and the surrounding area was very appreciated.

“Expectations Exceeded!”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife and I were extremely pleased with our stay at the Chalet. Everything was clean, neat, and in perfect working order. The cable and wi-fi service throughout the unit was good to have to keep in touch with friends and world events. And added touch was the labeling of the various light switches throughout unit so you knew exactly how to turn on the various lights both inside and out. Keep up the good work!

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 21 October 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The Hublet made a last minute decision to take me up to North Carolina to experience some of the fantastic scenery (especially coming from fairly flat Florida), so we dedicated a long Memorial Day weekend to our trip.

I rushed around trying to find an available place to stay, almost resigning myself to having to stay in some awful budget motel straight out of a horror film, however was delighted to come across the Joy Chalet on the HomeAway website and I reached out to Stephanie who runs the chalet.

She was a delight to work with, from beginning to end, and provided us with a huge amount of information about not only her chalet but also concerning what was available in the surrounding area, including shops, restaurants options (including some wonderful ‘unique local restaurant suggestions if you’re not an Olive Garden/Appleby’s sort of diner) and local attractions to visit.

The price p/night sounded suspiciously low considering all the benefits that the chalet boasted we arrived expecting to discover some sort of horrible catch...but there honestly wasn't one, the Joy Chalet was an utterly wonderful place to stay.

Unfortunately this is not a location for couples with children or large groups, however as we were neither we didn’t mind and enjoy the complete peace and quiet the area offered.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or simply a private vacation location that doesn’t feel like a soulless cookie cutter box, Joy Chalet is wonderful choice for anyone.

The chalet is located conveniently close to the Asheville Regional Airport but we weren't disturbed by a single plane while we were there. It's also very close to The Biltmore Estate, and Stephanie will purchase entry tickets in advance if you wish.

The chalet is tucked away in a very quiet residential area, with the cabins/chalets nicely spaced apart from each other.

Stephanie has stocked her 2-level chalet with everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING, you could possibly need, including towels, a kitchen full of utensils and free Wi-Fi. It feels like a home-away-from-home and there’s a Walmart, a Whole Foods Market and a large range of smaller grocery stores nearby if you didn’t have time to buy any supplies on the way in.

As you enter the house through the front door you step into the living room (complete with gas fireplace) that leads on into the kitchen, the downstairs rest room, the back porch and screened Hot Tub. Immediate in front of you is the stairway leading up to the bedroom with closet and master bedroom (with Jacuzzi tub).

Although I didn’t think I would have the time for the Hot Tub, after climbing Chimney Rock and walking around Biltmore Estate I made the time and my aching legs hugely appreciated it.

The décor is cosy and romantic, with little personal touches everywhere that have clearly been chosen with care.

The Joy Chalet is a fantastic place for couples to stay and I cannot recommend Stephanie’s vacation rental enough.

“All The Comforts Of Home....And A Whole Lot More!"”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

If you're planning to spend a few days in the Asheville area, I cannot think of a more relaxing, comfortable, convenient property than the Joy Chalet.

My wife and I arrived at Joy Chalet following a rigorous seven-hour drive from Alabama (with heavy traffic and even heavier rain). Once we unloaded the car I plopped down in the living room and took in the surroundings. The sofa and throws are luxuriously comfortable, the artwork fun, eclectic and representative of the Asheville community. The overall effect is immediate and soothing, like returning home after an arduous journey. I could feel myself unwinding with each passing minute.

The kitchen is surprisingly large and well-appointed, with topnotch appliances, cookware and utensils. Conveniently located around the perimeter of the kitchen is a pantry, hidden washer and dryer, and a small powder room.

One of the finest features of Joy Chalet is the screened porch behind the kitchen. Every evening my wife and I relaxed in the wicker chairs (she with her wine and I with my beer) until well after dark. The forest behind the chalet is dense and peaceful; a perfect place to pass the time.

Upstairs in the loft is the king bed, with a plush, pillow-top mattress and luxurious, high thread count linens. The bathroom features a nice, deep jetted tub/shower combination along with high quality cotton towels. And the safety bar on the wall next to the tub is a much appreciated extra.

Joy Chalet is located on a semi-private lot on the end of a cul-de-sac within a densely wooded, friendly community of similarly-designed chalets and homes. It is less than twenty minutes south of Downtown Asheville via I-26.

The owner, Stephanie, thoughtfully provided countless small touches that added to our stay. One of them was an Ingles Advantage Card, which we took full advantage of on the first full day of our visit. The nearby Ingles supermarket was large and clean, with an outstanding selection and surprisingly low prices.

Although we took a sizable load of groceries back to the chalet, my wife and I experienced several delightful meals and treats around the Asheville area. Especially memorable were the sesame rolls at Ianucci's, the cake batter ice cream at Kilwin's in Black Mountain, the delicious al fresco lunch at Carmel's outside the Grove Arcade, and the authentic German cuisine at Black Forest.

Joy Chalet is the perfect place for a busy professional couple to unwind for a few days and enjoy a second honeymoon. It is worthy of our highest recommendation.
