About Susie Wells

My husband Gary and I met in Brevard 30 years ago. We have been renovating homes in and around Brevard for the last 23 years. This Vacation Rental: The Brown Eyed Susie is fondly named after me. We both enjoy bringing back to life homes that have been neglected and somewhat 'remuddled' This one has heart and the benefit of being walking distance to the wonderful town of Brevard.

Susie Wells purchased this house in 2013

This home could not be more welcoming. And so close to everything Brevard has to offer. Charming layout and spotless. I only regret that we hadn't stayed here before on our previous house hunting visits. I highly recommend this cozy home.

The home was updated, warm and in excellent shape

  • 5 of 5
We found the home to be in an excellent location because it was so close to downtown Brevard and the college. We would highly recommend this place for a weekend or longer get away. We definitely want to come back.

Absolutely PERFECT place to stay in Brevard!!

  • 5 of 5
This adorable downtown bungalow was the BEST choice to stay while visiting Brevard for our son's wedding.

The high finishes, the beautiful furnishings, the spotless rooms, the most comfortable beds...not to mention walking distance to downtown Brevard...was beyond our expectations!

We weren't able to spend a lot of time there, as we were busy with wedding preparations but the time we were....we spent hanging on the great front porch!

I highly recommend the Brown Eyed Susan for a wonderful stay in Brevard!

We can't wait to plan our return trip!!

The "Brown Eyed Susie Cottage" Had Us Singing Sha-la-la-la

The "Brown Eyed Susie Cottage" Had Us Singing Sha-la-la-la
  • 5 of 5
This quaint, perfectly charming and conveniently located cottage was ideal! The cottage is immaculate; the beds and linens very comfortable; the kitchen with it's beautiful custom cabinets offered full amenities. The cottage is newly renovated, but has stayed true to it's era with the rich hardwood floors throughout, crisp white bead boarded powder rooms, authentic base boards, doors and trims and open-air front porch; however, the cottage also offers upscale modern features such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and tucked away washer and dryer. One reviewer mentioned the noise from Main Street, but we found the thick heavy doors and windows blocked most of the noise out, especially from the back bedroom. Easy drive to Pisgah and Dupont Forest. For us, the best part was the short walk in to the historic part of town. We enjoyed shopping by day and fabulous dinners with a nice bottle of wine each evening. We stopped on the way home one evening to catch a jazz set at a local club. We will definitely be back...skippin' and a-jumpin'!!!

Great location...awesome front porch!!

  • 4 of 5
The house was very nice, in excellent condition. We loved the location,front porch was AWESOME, great kitchen and the bushes around property lines/road frontage. It felt private yet in the middle of everything. The only drawback for us to go back several times a year was the full size beds. The room is there and it would have been the best trip ever if the sleeping arrangements were better. We typically will not rent a place unless one bed is queen size or larger but the location is why the exception was made and it was worth it for the experience but generally great sleep is first priority. It also would have been nice to have a larger sofa and a grill. We love to grill on our vacations. Brevard has become a favorite destination for us. We love to mountain bike and the area offers soo much. Great place for a great price!!
