You can read about me by clicking on “Property Manager” – I am owner of AshevilleVacationHomes eleven vacation rentals. YOU are my full time business and will do my best to see that you have a 5 star stay!


The luxurious, very comfortable couches and rich marble tables are quietly elegant and a perfect nest to watch your flat screen TV with simple-to-use built-in DVD. Choose from over 100 movies in our video library or watch cable TV. Better yet, it’s the ideal spot to just peacefully sit and unwind in front of the fire in the river stone gas log fireplace.


Your romantic upstairs king bedroom suite features a magnificent tapestry over a sumptuous Simmons king bed, soft cotton sheets, plush blanket and elegant comforter. Lay in luxury while you watch your HDTV/DVD. A handsome dresser, chest of drawers and walk-in closet offer plenty of space for your clothes. And, best of all, an amazing Human Touch Technology Massage Chair will send you to heaven! It’s our guests' favorite ultimate pleasure. A tasteful bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub/shower and soft cotton towels complete the master suite.


Your delightful eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with all new everything! You have full size new appliances including stainless refrigerator, ceramic glass cook top with self-cleaning oven, dishwasher, microwave, and disposal. You’ll find cooking knives, a multitude of pots, pans, bake dishes, cookie sheets, cake pans, pizza pan, muffin pans, hand mixer, toaster, blender, waffle iron, coffeemaker and even a coffee grinder for your freshly brewed coffee. You’ll find a selection of spices and a few other goodies as well. Just off the kitchen is a full size washer and dryer as well as a pretty powder room half bath.


Just out the kitchen door is the wonderful screened, covered porch. Relax there in privacy in your 2-person spa hot tub filled with fresh water ( privacy screens) or sip on a morning cup of coffee while you sit in the wicker chairs to view the woodlands back yard.

For the fun of it, there is a 1948 Scrabble board, a 1961 Monopoly game, a 1974 Easy Money game plus games such as chess, checkers, playing cards, Yahtzee, etc. In addition, there is a small selection of enjoyable paperback novels. With all the special touches, Joy Chalet feels like a warm, inviting home rather than a vacation rental house. Central air conditioning makes summers cool although seldom needed in these Blue Ridge Mountains.

YOU DESERVE TO BE SPOILED!!! With all the special touches, this is a warm inviting home rather than a “vacation rental house.” I promise you a meticulously clean & well-maintained home thoughtfully furnished with your every need in mind! I am a caring local owner who takes exquisite care of my 11 AshevilleVacationHomes properties and am available anytime to see to your needs. YOU are my full-time business!

About Stephanie Joy Johnson

I am Stephanie Joy Johnson, owner and manager of my homes. My passion is creating beauty in real estate….remodeling and restoring homes, landscape design, interior home décor and, best of all, making guests feel pampered when they stay at my personally owned luxury vacation homes in the gorgeous mountains of Western North Carolina. I devote myself full-time to taking care of my homes & guests. YOU are my full-time business! My business is called Asheville Vacation Homes.

I began this business in 2004 and delight in finding beautiful locations and gorgeous homes for vacation rental settings. I am always searching for interesting furnishings (shopping!) to add to the delightful decor for my guests.

During your stay, you also might meet my awesome property manager and “fix-it man,” David. He can take care of any maintenance or property issues should they arise. He and I are both available 7-days-a-week to make sure your stay is the best ever!

Why Stephanie Joy Johnson chose Fletcher

I am passionate about living in these awesome Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and adore sharing my vacation rental homes with guests who come to experience our area’s mountains & towns. I take exquisite care of my properties and am available anytime to see to your needs. I make sure each home is exceptionally clean, meticulously well-maintained and the hot tub sparkling with fresh water.

I have lived in Asheville, North Carolina for many years and find great joy in discovering more and more reasons why this is the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO LIVE! Asheville is consistently in the “Top 10 Places To Live” according to almost any criterion published! It’s a diverse multi-cultural blend of mountain folk and cosmopolitan society set in a dramatically beautiful mountain setting. It is my heart-felt desire to provide gorgeous welcoming homes in spectacular settings and to share this town with you!

What makes this chalet unique

With all the special touches, I promise you that my vacation rental homes will feel as though you are staying at a friend’s warm inviting home rather than a 'vacation rental house.' You'll appreciate the tasteful decor and thoughtful care my homes reflect. Each home has been lovingly remodeled, elegantly furnished, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully accessorized with special amenities to pamper you including massage chairs, hot tubs, high speed wireless Internet, king beds with sumptuous bedding, HDTV’s & DVD's, movie libraries, quality well-equipped kitchens, fireplaces, central heat & air conditioning, washers & dryers and much more!

Unique to my homes are all the amenities offered for babies and children. There are cribs, pack-n-plays, strollers, high chairs, baby bath tubs, stuffed animals & blankies. Older children love to play on the outdoor playgrounds with forts, slides, swings, climbing walls, etc. plus games, books, toys, kids DVD movies and more. Kids of all ages love to roast marshmallow at the firepits.

My homes are easily accessed, right in-town, close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. No winding mountain roads to get lost in or long drives to town. The homes are in peaceful, lush vacation spots where you can relax and feel at home.

Rather than dealing with a third party management company with limited business hours & knowledge of a home, you can deal directly with me, the owner. I am available to you 7 days-a-week, anytime between 9 AM and 7 PM and after hours for emergencies. I know my properties intimately because I have personally had them restored, remodeled, furnished and equipped. YOU are my full time business! Because I live locally, I am available whenever you call.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I enjoyed staying at the "Joy" Chalet so much. We took everything we thought we would need. Turns out all we need was our clothes. Everything we could have dreamed of needing was in the chalet. The attention to detail, from plastic wrap to the hair dryer was provided, it was absolutely amazing. The chalet is so beautiful. We appreciated the brochures of all the places to eat, the activities(and there is a lot to do) and maps. We will most definitely be back there. Stephanie is absolutely the nicest lady in ashville. She is very attentive to all your needs. So glad we chose ashville and the "Joy" Chalet.

Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

This is just what my boyfriend and I were looking for. A place to relax, to slow down, to unwind, to reconnect, and to savor the moments of restfulness and vacation. We were very thankful for the amount of effort and intention that went into making this an extremely comfortable place to stay!

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place to stay - just the right size for the two of us. We enjoyed some lovely evenings by the fireplace and had a great time exploring the Asheville area! I'd definitely recommend this property for a fun relaxed trip to Asheville - it's close enough to get to everything easily but pleasantly removed in the country!

Clean, peaceful & cozy

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Joy Chalet. The location is in an ideal spot, close to activities in the Asheville and Hendersonville areas. Lots of Autumn colors all around. We had the opportunity to witness several wild turkeys that live in the neighborhood and we also had a visit from a Saker Falcon on the backyard tree. We really enjoyed having the fireplace on cool evenings as well as the Jacuzzi on the back porch. The Chalet is located very close to the interstate and the south end of the Asheville Airport runway. Other than the occasional large truck passing by or an aircraft taking off in the middle of the day, the neighborhood is very quiet. The description of the house and its amenities are all very accurate. We look forward to our next trip to the mountains of North Carolina and we will definitely stay at this property again.

Joy Chalet great little hide away for two

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a little over a week in this sweet little Chalet while house hunting around the Ashville/Hendersonville area. I was pleased to find that all the basic amenities were stocked in this cute house - all we had to furnish were our groceries. It's location couldn't be better, tons of places to eat and shop were located near by with easy access to Interstates 40 and 26. This place was clean and neat. Enjoyed walking on the trail behind the house and sitting on the back porch in the evening listening to the night sounds of the frogs and other critters. I will recommend this place to family and friends.

Seemingly small, but FULL of charm.

  • 5 of 5

Upon opening the door, we were delighted with the charm and coziness of the Joy Chalet. The cozy cabin had more amenities than we had expected. The kitchen was stocked with every gadget imaginable. The furniture was well cared-for and very comfortable. Even more-so, was the king sized bed upstairs. We enjoyed the comfort of the cabin as much as exploring the nearby attractions. I hope that we will be able to return in the near future!
