For long-term reservations (3 weeks or longer) a deposit of $400 (credited toward your stay) is required.

Cancellation Policy

Short Term (less than 3 weeks) We know that plans can go astray, but cancellations cannot always be re-booked. We do try to be fair to all concerned. For reservations canceled over 30 days prior to arrival date, all monies paid will be refunded minus a $50 processing fee. For cancellations with less than 30 days notice there will be no refund; however, we will issue a partial refund if we are able to rent the unit for the same time period. There are no refunds for early departures.

Long Term (greater than 3 weeks) Any reservation for a period of 3 weeks or longer is considered long term. A $400 deposit is required and the balance must be paid in full 45 days prior to arrival. For reservations canceled over 45 days prior to arrival, all monies paid will be refunded minus a $50 processing fee. For cancellations with less than 45 days’ notice there will be no refunds, but a credit for same length of stay will be given off-season only. Any credits used to reschedule a reservation are subject to season and availability. Discounts offered at time of original booking will not be applied to the rescheduled booking.
Asheville Swiss Chalets is not responsible for weather or other natural disasters and cannot provide refunds for these occurrences. We encourage guests to purchase trip insurance which covers you from losses incurred due to unforeseen circumstances such as: unexpected health issues, death, severe inclement weather, etc. Visit which offers quotes and policies from several companies. Premiums are based on the cost of your trip.

Damages and Smoking Policy

We require a credit card on file in case of damages. There is absolutely no smoking allowed inside any of our rentals. Smoking areas are provided on the front porch or the back deck. Smoking inside will be considered damage and subject to an automatic minimum charge of $200, should there be evidence of smoking after your departure. We make every effort to ensure all is perfect for your stay. We expect our guests will leave our rentals in the same condition they found it in upon arrival. Therefore, if anything is missing, damaged, or requires an unusual amount of extra cleaning we reserve the right to charge accordingly.

Extra Guests

Rates are based on 2 occupants per room. (For example, a 2-bedroom chalet is priced for 4 people.) For parties that exceed the number of guests per unit, there is a $30.00 charge per person, per night–or $100 per week.
