Log cabin on the East Fork of the French Broad River. This is our private 'National Forest'. It is nestled in a quiet, rural farming community about 9 miles from Brevard, NC. Our cabin is at the base of a mountain and is a stone's throw from the river. Our elevation is about 2500 feet and you can hike up our mountain out back much higher for some real nice mountain views. The setting is very private and secluded. East Fork Road can barely be seen way upriver and it receives light traffic from local residents and trout fishermen. Ask for our pictures of the surrounding valley of fields, meadows, mountains and old farmsteads.
Our gravel drive is about 1/2 mile in to the cabin on the river and you might spot a wild turkey or white-tailed deer as you head in. An SUV is useful, but not required.
Built in 2007 with 2 nice bedrooms and a loft upstairs. No children under 12 please for safety reasons. Rocking chairs and cot on the porch.
Please email us for more pictures of inside - bedrooms, kitchen, outside yard, the valley.
The Unique Benefits of this Cabin: Several excellent restaurants in Brevard. Out here- R&R is the key. 1st class trout fishing on the river. Sleep on the porch in peace with the river rolling on by. Venture out on the property to find the elusive wood thrush, see the passing osprey, kingfisher or herons that bedevil our trout, find the trillium, jack-in-the-pulpit, peppermint tree (black birch. Plenty of things to do nearby- tubing, kayaking, antiquing, shopping in Brevard, Highlands, Cashiers, or make a short trip to Asheville, about an hour away. See Biltmore, Pisgah National Forest, Jocassee Gorges, NC Gorges State Park, Dupont State Park or hundreds of waterfalls nearby. A mountain biking paradise, too! 5 minutes from Headwaters Outfitters for kayaking and tubing. Guided fishing trips from several nearby outfitters.
Why the Owner Chose Brevard: We fell in love with this property with long range mountain views and 2000 feet of rolling river. It is a wonderful place to relax and it gives you the true mountain feel. We will make it available for rental on a very selective basis, as we use it often ourselves. A map of the property is posted in the cabin to help you find your way around if you wish to hike the mountain trails or follow the trail down the river.
I am a wildlife biologist and forester, and my family and I love this property. Everyone who visits says it is an amazing "part of Heaven!". It is our family getaway and we live nearby in Brevard, NC. We take special care of this property for our personal use. We have only recently decided to make it available for rentals, on a part-time basis. The fishing picture is right out front and the river is perfect for flyfishing or light tackle.
Rosman is convenient to Brevard, Highlands, Cashiers and Asheville where you can find antiques, clothing stores, fly shops and plenty of local hospitality. The best deals are at the scattered Satuday morning yard sales, I am told.
Brevard's downtown tailgate market is open Tues. and Sat. mornings with fresh vegetables, nuts, fruits, organic meats, locally prepared breads, condiments, etc. fare. You can find anything from fried lobster to baked trout to the finest filet in the nearby restaurants.
