We had a great stay. Loved the Mountain Farm and the Pot Hole. My dad thinks El Ranchero is the best Mexican restaurant he's ever been to. My husband loved jumping into the South Toe River & my daughter bought a pair of sandals at a great shopin Burmsville called Clodhoppers. We all enjoyed long talks at night on the deck. A great family vacation for three generations!

We had a great time, visting Burnsville, Spruce Pine and Asheville. Picked blueberries three times at Mountain Farm and made pottery at the  YCCA. Our dog had a great time hiking Mount Mitchell and the falls with us. Hope to be back soon!

Beautiful Chalet. Wish we'd had more time to enjoy the decks & hiking but we were busy welcoming our first grandchild, Henry Paul. It's a long drive to Asheville! We'd love to come back again for a relaxing week.

My family and I enjoyed staying here. The deck has a great view! We enjoyed the movies. My dad rode his bicycle up Mt Mitchell and other mountains. We hope to come again soon.

We enjoyed staying here. The deck is wonderful. The house is convenient to good hiking and sightseeing and it is cute. Thank you for allowing people with dogs to share your house. We could never travel without them. They enjoyed the deck alot too!

Thanks for a wonderful place to kick back and really rest. This old world is getting so noisy! People rush everywhere and we need a place to just unwind. Thanks for giving us that place. God bless all of you! Hope to return in the future. Pets love it here too. :-)

Our son’s family from Charlotte joined us the first weekend and it was such fun visiting Little Switzerland, Spruce Pine and Burnsville. It’s so beautiful here! We felt so at home here thanks to you. Ed had a friend from Gastonia come up and join him for a day of golf and was so impressed with the scenic course. He is still talking about it!

We also enjoyed the falls (Roaring Fork), but Setrock was a little tedious for us oldies!

Thanks for a wonderful fall experience.

Three old guys (two brothers and 1 brother-in-law) originally from central NJ now living in ME, SC and NY climbed Mt Mitchell, Grandfather Mountain, etc. We would like to thank the Grafer family for use of the Hemlock Chalet. Weather was great (unusually warm) and Becky was very accommodating. Thanks again!

Thanks so much for a place to come and truly rest. Mike works for the department of homeland security so his job is really stressful. He really needed time off and this place was just what the doctor ordered. Thanks and hope to return. Our pets loved it too!

Becky – Really have enjoyed our month here in Hemlock Chalet. So quiet and peaceful. Several small deer visited us almost every day! The beauty of the area is one that must be experienced. Hemlock Chalet is quite comfortable and we hope to return next year. Sorry you could not make it up while we were here. Thanks so much for accommodating us, our best to you, Scott and your folks.

Becky, my wife, son and his family and I thoroughly enjoyed our first-time stay here. Not our last, lord willing! Our hike on Mt Mitchell, treks to the waterfalls and numerous tube rides and swimming at the Carolina Hemlocks park were wonderful, even though the water was low. We loved the Chalet and only wish we could have met you. My whole family wants to return before too long. God bless you and thanks for creating memories that will long endure!

Thank you so much for your hospitality. We enjoyed the Chalet and Mt Mitchell area. Our family celebrated a birthday, baptism and wedding anniversary! The Mt Mitchell Country Club was a great family restaurant. We also appreciated the good specific directions for local hiking trails. The falls were beautiful.

We had a great time! Saw lots of wildlife, we even got to see a bear on our way back to the Chalet one night. God’s blessings.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hemlock Chalet. We are sure to come back again and bring friends and send others. There was so much to do and see right here in the Mt Mitchell area without having to go far to get to anything else. It was so peaceful and relaxing and our dog Jessie loved it!! She scoped out the whole Chalet and property thoroughly.
Thanks so much,

“Cool” weather for mid-July, high of 80 with little humidity (compared to Charlotte!) the weather topped our wonderful, relaxing visit. The cabin was incredibly hospitable, having everything we need—even for a 2 and a half-year-old. Thanks for the thoughtfulness. Enjoyed cabin stay and several of your recommendations like hayride (Orchards), horseback riding and waterfalls. Thanks so much. We’ll definitely be back to this warm, cozy place!

We had so much fun here! The scenery and atmosphere were great. We went to Woody’s chair shop in Spruce Pine & the Soap Shed, then had lunch at Little Switzerland Café, which was really good. The we went to Mt Mitchell. It was really pretty at the top. The house is really nice, thanks!

We were married on June 24, 2005 just a couple of days ago and chose the mountains for the “mini-honeymoon” since we’ll go on our big honeymoon in Septmeber. Thanks for sharing your mountain chalet with us. Short trip but we are SMILING!
