Brevard House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 10

The non-smoking home is on a secluded, wooded ten-acre tract one mile from the entrance to the Slick Rock Mountain development and a five-minute walk from the lake.

It has a rustic exterior that blends with the natural environment, and there is a good view of nearby mountains from the living room and porch.

The two-story plan of the home, with two bedroom, bathroom up and downstairs, is well suited for a large family or two small families. The home is tastefully but functionally decorated, and the premises are clean and well maintained.

Slick Rock Mountain is a 600-acre development of vacation homes near Brevard, NC, between the Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains. The development focuses on family use, privacy, and preservation of the area in its natural state.

A small lake with picnic facilities is maintained for swimming, fishing and picnicking, and the development's gravel roads are kept in good repair. Otherwise, efforts are made to minimize development and maximize privacy in a heavily wooded, natural outdoor setting.

Slick Rock Mountain is about a 15-minute drive from Brevard, a charming resort town with a wide array of activities, including music, pubs, movies and antiquing. Asheville (with its lively arts, culinary and cultural scene, and classic Minor League baseball ballpark) and Hendersonville are about 35-45 minutes away; Greenville, SC is one hour away.

The area enjoys moderate weather all year. Summer lows are in the 50-63 degree range, with highs of about 75-85 degrees. Winters are mild in comparison with other mountain areas of North Carolina, with temperatures only occasionally dropping below ten degrees and moderate amounts of snowfall in most years. Elevation is about 3,000-3,750 feet above sea level.

The Vacation Home is less than two hours away from most of the major attractions in Western North Carolina. Driving distances to selected locations:

Brevard Music Center & Festival 15 minutes,

We rented this home to do hiking in the area! It was perfect for us! Each of us had our own bedroom! The view from the back screened in porch was fantastic! It was great sitting out there after a long day of hiking with a cold one and snacks! Home had every amenity we needed. Location was ideal for us!
Directions was great, did not have any problems finding it!
Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Very well mantained and clean property. Perfect for young families. Very spacious, and loved the screened in porches on both levels. Beautiful mountain view from the porches too. Town not to far from cabin, and a beautiful downtown area to explore. Great location and loved our stay.

It had been 9 years since we stayed at this sweet home in the mountains. It was lovely to stay again and this time with the littlest member and thus the next generation. We look forward to our next visit.

Had a Wonderful Family Vacation!

We really enjoyed our time on Slick Rock Mountain. The community was very welcoming.
The lake is a short 5 minute stroll from the house, 8 minutes to the beach area, or you can just hop in the car and drive down. The swimming area is well balanced between shallows for the little ones and deep areas for adults. Our kids had a blast swimming and fishing!
I think we ate all our meals on the 2nd floor porch with a view of the mountains - MY favorite spot!
Slick Rock is far enough away to escape the world but close enough to town to grab a bite or find something to do.
We found out, after visiting nearby Triple Falls, that The Hunger Games was filmed there - how cool is that?
We will be back!

Our family of nine (us, our son, daughter, son-in-law and 4 grandchildren) thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations at this rental. The sleeping arrangement was excellent (two bedrooms upstairs, two bedrooms downstairs), Both floors have ample sitting space inside as well as a screened in porch on each level.

This rental was well-equipped with dishes, linens, and cleaning supplies. The property was neat and clean. The view off of the back porch is stunning (as pictured in the listing). The communication and rental transactions were seamless (and quite friendly!).

Brevard is one of those places that draws you back again and again. We're in this area every July 4th holiday with family. There are some excellent golf courses only 10 minutes away from the rental (Connestee Falls and Sherwood Forest). Downtown Brevard has many special shopping experiences, including the unique selection at the White Squirrel, a classic soda shop (Bullwinkle's) and the coolest toy store on the planet (O.P. Taylor's).

And of course you are only 20-25 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway that takes you into Pisgah Forest with all its trails and waterfalls to explore. So many choices all within an easy drive from your hideaway rental in the mountains. We will be back!
