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

Why Susie Wells chose Brevard

We actually looked to buy this home many years ago...It needed so much work that we shied away. When it came on the market again, at a price that would allow us to do the necessary work, we jumped. We have added three closets, a half bath, laundry room, changed location of a bedroom and kitchen, rebuilt back porch, opened up walls to open space, replaced floor joists, replaced floor in kitchen and mud porch, relocated parking from back to front of house, all without adding any square footage (same footprint) ....It worked...whew!!! Time for a vacation!

What makes this house unique

Walking distance to town, comfort and character of an old home, big front porch with swing and extra seating, walking distance to Library

Brown Eyed Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Susie & Gary, what a beautiful job you did restoring this house. We loved our stay in your home. It is comfortable, and so clean! It was also well stocked with everything we needed.We loved taking our malti-poo Penelope to the cute little park across the street. Such a convient location to walk to the downtown, and restaurants. We enjoyed eating at Rocky's, The Falls Landing, and Marco Tratorria's. We would highly recommend the brown eyed Susie to anyone! Brevard is awesome little mountain town, and we can't wait to stay their again!

Very clean and beautifully updated!

  • 4 of 5

When we first entered the home, we felt the living room was smaller than the pictures seemed. The living room furniture was small and not very comfortable, but suited the home perfectly. The kitchen is beautiful and equiped with anything you will need. The beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of extra towels, blankets and linens if you need them. Very central to everything in and near Brevard. We loved it and plan on returning in the future! Susie is very helpful, down to earth and wonderful as well!

Wonderful Trip

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little craftsman home that has been redone beautifully. Traveled with our 2 daughters home from college for the holidays and enjoyed our stay very much. The home is very nice and was a great place to just relax. Brevard is a very nice town with cute shops and nice restaurants in a beautiful mountain setting. As some reviews state, there is some road noise but it did not seem to bother anyone during our stay. We definitely will return!

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
