UPSCALE MOUNTAIN VACATION HOME - BEAUTIFUL WOODED SETTING

Brevard House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This beautiful mountain home is nestled high in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by two gentle streams on 26 private, wooded acres. It is adjacent to Jones Gap and Caesar's Head State Parks, a part of the 10,000-acre protected environment for many rare and endangered plant and animal species known as the Mountain Bridge Wilderness. Hiking and mountain biking trails abound here and in the nearby DuPont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest.

The house itself has the warmth and charm of gentler times when families from Greenville came to the mountains to escape summer’s heat and humidity. It has since been thoroughly reconstructed with the installation of a gourmet kitchen, totally new infrastructure including new bathrooms, central heating and air conditioning. We call it “Pentimento” because the charm of the old subtly shines through the new.

There is a master suite with a king-sized bed and adjacent full bath on the first floor. Upstairs, a second master suite has a king-sized bed, a private full bath and walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and the other with two double beds, share a third full bath.

The house comfortably sleeps three or four couples, or two couples plus several single adults or young children. The dining area table seats a maximum of eight people.

The wrap-around porch and wood burring stone fireplace in the living room are both great places for gathering family and friends.

In addition to hiking and biking, there are several great golf courses nearby as well as fishing horseback riding, river rafting and many other outdoor adventures. The nearby City of Brevard, home of Brevard College and world famous Brevard Music Center, offers great restaurants, arts and crafts and shopping. There are many summer children’s camps nearby including YMCA Camp Greenville and its a great wedding venue, Pretty Place (Symmes Chapel).

We’re centrally located to conveniently explore the entire Upstate South Carolina/Western North Carolina area. Hendersonville, Asheville and Greenville are all within 40 to 80 minutes away.

My husband and I are high-tech industry retirees who are fortunate enough to be able to spend part of our year in the fantastic Upstate South Carolina/Western North Carolina mountains. We rebuilt this wonderful vacation home in 2004 and are happy to share it with others who love the area as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

This property has been in our family since it was built in 1939 by my grandmother as a respite from Greenville's summer heat. Previously used only in the warm months, the house has been completely renovated with a gourmet kitchen and a totally new infrastructure including comfortable, year-round central heating and air conditioning.

We were able to perserve the warmth and charm of this mountain get away while still having all the comfort and conveniences of the 21st century!

We are ideally surrounded by state parks in both North and South Carolina which provide many hiking and mountain biking trails with great waterfalls and wilderness vistas. You can escape the feeling of suburbia while still having ready access to shopping and entertainment in nearby Brevard or, a little further away, Asheville NC and Greenville SC.

Or you just walk out the door and hike down the fascinating Jones Gap!

Early Fall in the Mountains

This is a beautifully restored mountain home. Impeccably clean and comfortable. The kitchen was modern and had very tool and gadget to satisfy gourmet cooks. We had a wonderful time exploring - there are many interesting sights close by, including Caesars Head (beautiful views), DuPont Forest (amazing waterfalls) and too many hiking trails to list. The house is close to the quaint town of Brevard (do your food shopping at Ingles) and good restaurants (try Marco's). We had a fun canoe trip down the French Broad river. It was great to come back after a day of exploring and have a cocktail on the porch, a nice meal, and a soothing wood fire. There are so many things to do and see and Pentimento is the ideal place to stage your mountain vacation.

Excellent accommodations! Just like being at home - complete kitchen for the cooks, comfortable beds in every room with luxurious bedding, all seating very comfortable, wonderful wrap around porch, large den w/ fireplace, outdoor grill - home surrounded by a virtual rainforest environ. QUIET and peaceful. Lovely setting. Must note a lot of stairs to house from parking area. Nearby to Dupont Forest & Falls, Brevard, NC and Caesars Head, SC as well as "Pretty Place" where the YMCA Camp is located.Most enjoyable - we will return! Highly recommend.

You will not be disappointed with this mountain house rental. From the minute you enter the driveway, you'll know you made the right choice. The surrounding area is beautiful, conveniently located and overall just charming. You'll enjoy the short drive to Brevard or Hendersonville for shopping or dining and the hiking trails that are located within minutes from this property. No need to look any further...this is definitely the rental you should choose if you want a cozy, spacious, well-stocked, clean and comfortable vacation home. We can't wait until our next stay!

I LOVE this place!!

I am a local resident who was searching for a location for my wedding. As an avid mountain biker i knew I wanted my wedding in the mountains I love to ride. When I found Pentimento I knew I found the perfect location! It was minutes from my favorite trails and secluded enough to give me the true feeling of being in the woods. The house was perfect size for our small wedding. The kitchen was great for cooking (we cooked all the food for the wedding); it was stocked with every utensil and serving dish we could need.
The wrap around porch was perfect for entertaining and great for sipping morning coffee and listening to the wind in the trees and birds singing. The beds were incredibly comfortable and had high quality linens; certainly superior than the average hotel.
We had family in town from out of state and they rented a house in the area as well. The difference between the two properties was shocking. The other house provided the very basics, whereas pentimento went above and beyond, considering each and every need I may have.
The local contact and caretaker of the property was extremely kind and generous, and ensured that all of our needs were met. They even took the time to let us view the property before we rented it.
It truly was above and beyond my expectations and made my wedding spectacular!! We can't wait to go back!!

Pentimento Mountain Retreat

  • Submitted: Jul 12, 2012

This is a beautiful property with friendly, responsive owners. The listing accurately describes the premises but you have to be there to experience the incredible ambiance. The large porch with comfortable seating and a swing provided the perfect spot for enjoying the quiet beauty of the woods. The property was clean, comfortable, and well-maintained; the caretaker is a lifelong resident of the area, and was willing to answer all of our questions. The kitchen is well supplied with utensils and other conveniences. The property is about 20 minutes from Brevard where you will find restaurants, shops, pharmacies and 2 major grocery chains. There are beautiful hiking trails, waterfalls, and numerous points of interest along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Asheville is a lovely town a little over an hour away, with restaurants, shops, and the Biltmore, which is worth the drive. I would definitely recommend Pentimento to anyone who asks, and we certainly plan to return.
