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

Very Beautiful Home and Loving Caring Experience

  • 5 of 5
I have just stayed in this most precious Brown eyed home. My stay here has been has been an almost surreal experience of living in a warm and just beautiful home. My experience with The owner has been nothing but a sincere loving and authentic concern for my stay to be as nurturing and the sense of being in my own personal home . The subtle presence of this home I have found to be inspired that the Owners have personally touched and transformed with such care and love every aspect of this house. there is sense of detail of eloquence mixed with presence of invitation of comfort. Every detail has been carefully thought out and respectfully made available to you with ease at a level of great respect for the occupant. I am a person sensitive to noise and was told this home was near a road but the solid door solid walls of this amazing fully restored home it was hardly noticed. I was here for a day and it wasn't until I turned my awareness and looked for the road noise is when I slightly noticed it.
As soon as I turned my awareness to the beauty in simple extraordinary presence of this house it makes it louder sound of peace, comfort and grace that can be felt ,this is all I experienced for my stay here. The owners care for the occupant has made my experience a memory that is written on my heart and soul. I would highly recommend this experience for all people wanting to experience a beautifully restored home in a very sweet town ......
Thank you

Great house not a great location

  • 2 of 5
We stayed a month at this house and if you are looking for peace and quiet this is not the house for you. I'm sorry to say this as the owners did a beautiful renovation, but the noise from the front and back streets never ended. I expected some road noise during the morning and evening's rush hours, but the traffic noise was constant. A little quieter by 10pm but started up again by 4am with the delivery trucks. At times the house actually shook from the trucks. Maybe the folks that wrote the other reviews are used to living in noisy neighborhoods. As other people said it is very convenient to downtown which is great, but so is a good nights sleep.

Brown Eyed Susie: The Only Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 3 weeks in the Brown Eyed Susie and it was the perfect place for the 2 of us. Internet service made it possible to work from home during the day and evenings were spent downtown, which is a mere 5 minute walk away.

Despite its size, Brevard is a bustling little city during the day (even in off season) and the house sits on a busy through-way. However things are very quiet at night so don't let that deter you. Everything is within walking distance from the property and the Greenway trail head is only a short bike ride away. It's an awesome location!

There is true pride in ownership and the owner's have gone to great lengths to ensure all guests needs are met. The house itself has recently been renovated top to bottom and they did a spectacular job.

The kitchen comes complete with granite counters, high end appliances, lovely dishes and a suitable selection of pots and pans. There's even a mixer if you want to whip up a treat or two! (Note: If you are a cook, bring your own knives/sharpener and possibly a larger cutting board.)

The bathrooms have upgraded fixtures and custom cabinetry that offer plenty of storage. We chose to sleep in the back bedroom and found the bed to be extremely comfortable and the pillows equally great. The owners provide a generous amount of linens/blankets/towels, plus there is lots of closet space w/hangers and a washer/dryer for added convenience.

There is no garage, but a mud room off the kitchen provides ample space for bikes and additional storage needs.

The owner's were super-responsive and very friendly making the entire transaction a pleasure.

If you're planning a stay in Brevard, we can't recommend the Brown Eyed Susie enough. It is warm, inviting and long on charm.

We hope to return soon.

The best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5
For all the years we have been coming up to NC, this was the best place we experienced. Everyone was so friendly. Susie and Gary were so caring and helpful through our stay. They did such an amazing job of restoring this lovely 1940 home. We just loved staying at Brown Eyed Susie! We enjoyed being in walking distance to downtown Brevard. The house is well stocked with everything. I needed an extra table for the porch and Susie was so gracious to get one for me. I look forward to returning to this place again soon.

after a very long drive, a perfect place to be!

  • 5 of 5
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.
