The Chalet Inn is exactly what it advertises, a perfect Swiss chalet-styled inn in the middle of the beautiful western North Carolina mountains. The location, about a mile from the highway kept things quiet while letting you get out to see the area easily. The innkeepers, Hanneke and George were gracious, helpful, and a pleasure to talk to. The inn's rooms were just the right size, and our balcony overlooked the forested area in the back yard. The grounds had a number of trails that were well-maintained, and just enough to allow you to enjoy a walk. The morning breakfast was delicious and complemented by talking with Hannake. We couldn't have asked for a better relaxing getaway.
