Overview

Brevard House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Most Brevard area homes with amazing mountain views are half an hour or more away from town. Here, just drive 5 minutes and you will arrive downtown with all it has to offer. At night, experience the dazzling view of the city lights. Despite its proximity to town, this house is very private. From the expansive back decks on a summer day, you can often hear distant music drifting up through the trees from the Brevard Music Center. In the fall, take in the amazing mountain view of changing leaves. Enjoy a huge stacked stone fireplace with large dining room and living room both with fabulous views. The kitchen has river rock granite counter-tops and new stainless steel appliances.

For cyclists... there is also a garage to store bikes or other outdoor equipment. Bracken Mountain Trail is almost just outside our back door.

The property also features a private pool with a 'twisty'slide and hot tub (both open only during the summer) surrounded by beautiful stacked stone rock work. There is a gated playground with a swing set, and a custom made tree-house for the bigger kids. The playground also has a picnic table and fire ring for backyard camp-outs. Also enjoy a lower kids deck with ping pong table and tire swing. For kicking back after an active day, the kids can hang out in the indoor game room with a Netflix ready TV/DVD with wifi and an air hockey table.

About Robin McCollough

One of us is a cyclist/hiker and the other an art/ theater lover. Brevard, Asheville and surrounding areas are a haven for both. We live 30 minutes away from the house.

Robin McCollough purchased this house in 2002

Why Robin McCollough chose Brevard

Husband grew up going to camp here as a child. We vacationed here for 20 years before finally buying a house in the area.

What makes this house unique

When we considered selling this house the realtor said it was so unique he wouldn't know how to compare it to anything. It's like a private family vacation compound in the middle of the woods, but you can get in the car and in minutes be in downtown Brevard. When we bought the property in 2002, the pool inspector gave us the history of how the pool had been built and the rock work implemented. It is beautiful but also remarkable because it is on the side of a mountain. He told us that he had actually submitted a bid to build the pool, and had made it an outrageous amount never believing that it would have been possible to do. He told us 'I see she went and got herself someone to build it!' We also have an eclectic mix of antiques and contemporary art in this house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home has surpassed our expectations. How beautiful and relaxing even with kids and grandkids! Each child had a spot to relax in and the adults were able to talk. We loved having our family reunion, birthdays and July 4th here. My parents came up twice. They are not in good health so it was perfect for them to come and go as they needed to. You were the perfect host and hostess - helping us with the pool etc. We have made some precious memories here.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
In one word, FABULOUS! This house is exactly as pictured! Beautiful views, plenty of space to spread out, and a kid's dream house. The only trouble we had was being able to pull the kids away from the house to do the nearby, kid friendly waterfall hikes, and apple orchard visits! Would recommend only 4-wheel drive vehicles if visiting in the winter months, which I'm sure is a picturesque time to be here. Our family loved the ping pong, air hockey, toys, fire pit, swings, tree house, tire swing, and all of the parent-minded security measures that exist in this house! If you like waterfalls, don't miss the Moore Cove falls. It is about a mile hike in to a 50' free fall falls, and you can walk behind the falls, which was awesome for the kids! There are great places along the walk to stop and dip toes in calm water, and for the more daring you can climb to the top of the rock ledge for a unique view of the falls. Mayberry's on Main St. was a favorite food stop for us. Ingles grocery store is at the bottom of the hill, very convenient. This house is just the best of so many worlds! Location, ammenities, kid friendly, clean, comfortable, and fantastic views. Robin, thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven with us! We will be return visitors for years to come!

Excellent well maintained property

  • 5 of 5
This home has it all. We were specifically looking for a kid friendly home.....and boy did we ever find a gem! This home has an excellent playroom designed for children! And we loved the fact that all the outdoor porches are screened....no scary situations for little ones. And at the very bottom of the mountain within 4 miles...there is a Sonic! Who could ask for more? We went out to a nice dinner without the kids to "Hobnob". It was wonderful....the vrbo owner steered us to that special spot. For a lovely dinner out without children.....go there!
This home has many added special touches that you will not find with other rentals. Even the detail on the kitchen and bathroom soap pumps. So nice.....felt like home away from home! Robin ...your vrbo owner .....knows how to take care of guests and how to decorate a home! And the dinners out on the upstairs screened porch will live on in our memory book forever.....so happy we picked this property. If you are looking for an upscale feel in the mountains.....book this home asap! The views are beautiful from the upstairs area. You should see the views while you take in a football game on the televison. This is a gem!

Mountain Bikers--Stay Here!!

  • 5 of 5
For our annual mountain bike trip, we wanted to ride Dupont and Pisgah out of Brevard, NC and this house was the prefect find for our group of six riders. The house is very spacious and open with two HUGE screened decks that had spectacular views of the valley below. Being close to downtown, two bike shops, places to eat and a nice grocery store made the location great but the privacy on the top of the hill really makes this place ideal. It was so nice that we cooked and ate dinner in the house most nights! The large garage was a handy place to store and prep our bikes but the hot tub was the real treat after a day of riding. The owners (Mark and Robin) were extremely helpful, flexible, and responsive to us and made sure we were really happy. Mark is a rider who gave great intel on trails to hit. In addition to mountain biking, make sure you experience Sliding Rock and Oskar Blues Brewery. We highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a very nice place to stay in Brevard. Our group has stayed in many houses over the year and this has been one of the very best. Get off the brakes Bobby, Stay left Todd.

Hidden gem in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we first arrived and saw that view, we were hooked! The house with all its amenities was true to its claim and provided our family with a beautiful retreat from the world. And, yet, in a few minutes we could be down the hill and into the quaint town with its great shops. The owners were so attentive to our needs and conscientious about caring for the property to assure our stay was enjoyable. We especially appreciated the screened in porches for outdoor dining and ping pong, both with a view to die for, and the hot tub was such a treat. The area is a great location for nature lovers who want to explore the local state parks (Sliding Rock and the waterfalls featured in The Hunger Games made for fun days out.); but if you seek a world class historical site, visit the renowned Biltmore Estate. We've stayed in numerous vacation rentals, but this one was the most beautiful!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
Our favorite vacation house in 14 years! It was everything we needed and more. The pool, view, location & owners were the best. We stayed busy with all there was to do in the area and we did see a white squirrel! The week went by too fast. We loved it. Perfect place for a 15 & 9 yr old as they loved the rec room.
