About Jofre & Saskia Cacanindin
After living or owning properties in Germany, the Philippines, Hawaii, Manhattan, Croton-on-Hudson, and Raleigh, we chose the Asheville area to raise our three children. We love the cultural and natural richness of this place. The mountains, forests, ecological diversity, waterfalls and the local food movement, farms and markets, outstanding restaurants, cultural events and interesting, friendly people make this a great place to live and visit. We decided to build the Chalet at Winghaven so we can welcome people to this amazing area that we enjoy so very much. We live just about ten minutes away from Winghaven, on a small farm with dairy goats, rare breed chickens, ducks, geese and dogs. . Of course we would also be delighted to have you come in person and visit with the animals during your stay at Winghaven! Naturally, we will always have fresh eggs from our happy hens as well as handmade goat's milk soap for you at the Chalet at Winghaven.

Why Jofre & Saskia Cacanindin chose Fletcher
We looked for a long time to find the ideal vacation rental property here in our beautiful area. We were not satisfied with what we could find, so we decided to build it ourselves! The chalet is very close to our own home, but we still feel like we are on vacation every time we go up there, even though we go there mostly to work! We love the seclusion and privacy of a large property, but we don't like to drive forever to pick up some groceries, go to a restaurant or enjoy the culture of our region. One of the most important aspects in our search for the perfect vacation spot was that the home needed to be sunny and bright. When we found this amazing piece of land it was just a perfect fit. We love the special feeling and connection to nature that only a log home can offer, so this is what we built and we feel that it fits its location amazingly well.
What makes this Cabin unique
The chalet feels bright, airy and warm, with its exposed wooden beams, high ceilings and natural materials throughout. We love to have a crackling fire in the wood stove when it is chilly outside or sit on the porches and enjoy a glass of wine under the stars in summer. We designed the home to take full advantage of its location and the mountain views. The inside and outside connect through sliding glass doors and huge windows. The loft bedroom is amazing, it feels like you are sleeping in the tree canopy up and away from it all. Our kids love the bunk room, this is a favorite sleepover spot for them and their friends. The master bedroom is spacious and it is nice to open the sliding glass door to the porch and take in the night air before going to sleep. We love to explore the forest, follow the little stream downhill and look for the large flock of wild turkeys that is always to be found here somewhere.

Hoped for Snow
We drove up from Florida hoping we’d see snow. Didn’t get our wish for snow but fully enjoyed our stay. The property was super clean and aside from the kitchen faucet, everything worked great. Our thanks to the homeowners for their hospitality!
Wonderful Family Christmas!
We gathered our adult children from near and far to spend Christmas. What a wonderful house with beautiful views and solitude, yet close enough to Asheville and Hendersonville for wonderful restaurants and shopping. Hot chocolate on the porch of Grove Park Inn Christmas Eve was one of our favorites! The house is very well stocked with supplies and thoughtful items. There was plenty of seating for the family and lots of room to open Christmas. gifts. Jofre and Saskia were quick to respond when called about a question. We look forward to renting again.
Absolutely the best VRBO rental I’ve ever had!
This property is situated beautifully on the side of a mountain overlooking a gorgeous mountain range ahead. It is also very convenient to Asheville and Brevard (Brevard is great too!)
Thank you to the owners of this home for sharing this gem!
Great place, secluded in the mountains
Easy, and nice
This is a terrific house, with a very good layout, comfortable beds and great service. A girls weekend was thoroughly enjoyed, all the amenities were there and the kitchen was well stocked with plates and bowls and glassware.
The locations is nice, close to Asheville but on your own mountain. The driveways is a bit gravely and narrow, but was no problem for my little car.
I highly recommend staying here.
Amazing Mountain Getaway
I am a frequent VRBO renter and annually take a “puppy hiking vacation” somewhere in the mountains. This chalet in Fletcher was spectacular!!! The owners’ attention to every tiny detail, the serene privacy and the convenient access to both downtown Asheville & several waterfall hikes alike made me feel as though I was a world away from life’s hustle and stresses. I will definitely return and highly recommend this property as a mountain, pet-friendly, hiking getaway for both solo and group travelers.
