“A delightful stay at the stone Chalet” My husband and I spent a week at the Chalet for a leaf-changing getaway. He really chose well when he picked the week, because the colors were phenomenal all along the parkway! Our stay at the Chalet was really such a delight -- it was fantastic to get away from TV and internet and computers! Like the reviewer before me, I was really impressed with our arrival -- soft music playing, bunches of leaves and wildflowers brought in from outside -- such wonderful little touches that really warmed my heart. The Chalet had everything we could ask for! We did all of the cooking for the entire week in the snug little kitchen, and it was fantastic. Laying in bed and looking out at the trees blowing in the windy moonlight -- that was a memory I won't forget! The weather got pretty cold a few nights, and the fireplace really kept the whole house totally snug. I can't imagine staying here with more than two people, but it was definitely perfect for us! Such creative ways to save space -- I love that the dining table is on a fulcrum! Fantastic! Little Switzerland was a bit off the beaten path, but it provided a truly ideal launching point for a week of hiking along the Parkway and over at Grandfather Mountain. Stop by the Minerals Museum and talk to the rangers about some excellent off-the-beaten path hiking opportunities!
