Brevard House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Sleeping Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Our Mountain House is our primary residence but we will be happy to pack up and move out for the duration of your stay.

From the porch you can see for 20 miles to the West and North – amazing mountain views, morning mist rising from the river valleys below, the sunrise painting light and shadow on 9 ridges to the West, amazing sunsets – and continuous breeze.

This house is our home but we would like to turn it over to you to enjoy. We have rented it from time to time since 2009 while we camped from Central Mexico to the Canadian Rockies and the Maritimes and back, and we are doing it again on a year round basis until further notice.

We designed and built the house as a bright, airy and open place to enjoy the magical site. It is facing SW on the NW end of a finger ridge at elevation 3200’ overlooking the valley of the headwaters of the East Fork French Broad River in a quiet secluded 12.5 acre setting with paved roads right to the end of our easy driveway.

The neighborhood is surrounded by scores of thousands of acres of protected lands - lands in strong private hands or public lands such as Caesar’s Head State Park, Jones Gap State Park, duPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and Gorges State Park – each only a short drive, - as is the Blue Ridge Parkway. The view from our porch is Headwaters State Forest. Our neighborhood also includes miles of hiking and mountain biking trails and fly fishing on the East Fork French Broad.

The house features:

o More than 3000 sq ft of living area on three levels.

o More than 1500 sq ft of porch and patio on two levels.

o A cooking and view deck outside the kitchen door; with gas grill and chiminea.

o A fenced in side yard.

o Many large windows and tall glass doors for maximum light and air.

o The air conditioner is usually not needed.

o There is a well tended flower and kitchen garden with herbs and seasonal vegetables with a gardener provided. Cleaning service is provided once a week.

o Pets will be considered.

The main floor kitchen, great room (open to upper level roof line ceiling), and master bedroom all open to a wrap around 12 foot deep 750 sq. ft. porch for dining, comfortable seating and fair weather sleeping – ideal for families and entertaining. The large master suite includes a tile shower, double sinks, and walk in closet. The kitchen is fitted with black honed granite counter tops, farm-house (fire clay apron) sink, stainless steel appliances, gas cook top, electric convection oven, electric drawer oven, and walk-in pantry. The entry hall incorporates a coat closet and ½ bath powder room. The dining table seats 8 with additional seating at kitchen snack bar and on the porch.

The lower level includes family room with TV and game table, and a bedroom with twin beds each open to 750 sq. ft. flagstone terrace; and a full bath. The laundry room includes washer, dryer and utility sink.

The top level consists of one queen bedroom, one twin bedroom, and a full bath each opening to a large loft library/sitting area with clerestory windows and the great room below, and including a day bed.

Keywords: Our Mountain House is very near duPont State Forest (film location for 'The Hunger Games' and 'Last of the Mohicans') near Brevard, Smoky Mountains, North Carolina, USA (Big Hill Rd is 3.5 Mi from US 276 on E Fork Rd).

Tanne and I were born and raised in the SC low country. Escaping the summer heat by traveling to the mountains of WNC was something we always enjoyed. We moved to this area when Tanne retired after 28 years as a teacher. I am still working as a funding compliance analyst for public school districts.

Tom Traywick purchased this house in 2006

We have been coming to this area almost our entire lives (summer camp, family vacations, visits to relatives) and have always thought this country was magical. Since we have located here full time we have been amazed by the atmosphere of friendship among the locals and outlanders.

My fabulous week!

I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful house in early Spring. When I walked in I immediately felt that I was in a very special home. There were books everywhere. I think that this is a measure of a true home. I could have just stayed inside, reading in front of the huge fireplace, for my entire visit!

The house was appointed with everything you could ever need for a pleasant stay. The kitchen was complete with all the cookware a home chef could ever desire. We enjoyed many meals at the large dining table which we were able to set with place mats, napkins and china.

In addition to all this luxury was the quaint village of Brevard. Good shopping, great restaurants and art galleries. Ashville was only 45 minutes away and I cannot say how much I loved our several trips there. The Biltmore is a must see.
We also visited and enjoyed the towns of Hendersonville and Flat Rock nearby.

I guess by now you can tell that I loved our stay and that we will certainly come back as soon as possible. Did I mention the views from the large deck at the house? And it's close proximity to Pisgah Park with it's many waterfalls and hiking paths? Just beautiful!

Wedding Worthy!

My to-be-husband and I were far more than pleased upon arriving in and stepping into "Your Mountain House!" Your beautiful home offered the warmth, charm and elegance we were looking for in a mountain home wedding. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect spot for the ceremony than the covered deck overlooking the vast mountains. The living areas on the main level were spacious and very conducive for entertaining afterwards. The days spent in your home were after the wedding were truly cherished. We will always have the fondest of memories when thinking back to our wedding day and week. The immediate comfort level we, as well as our guests, felt while being in your home exceeded our expectations. Much thanks for providing a very well-maintained, inviting home! I would absolutely recommend this home to any friend or relative.

This house and its views -- something out of a travel book. I stayed at this mountain retreat with my college friends and we were never in want of space, beauty, convenience, or realxation. I couldsepend all day ion the porch and we did! The kitchen and great room was cozy, lovely, and made you want to stay there forever. The bathrooms and bedrooms were plentiful and so comfortable. May we come again?? I loved it. Thank you, you have truly created the PERFECT mountain getaway. And it's ideal for a gathering of old friends and family ( relaxing, sunsets, sleepful nights, and good food and drink with your closest friends). Life slows down bit in this house and reminds you of how we should all be living ALL of the time. Thank you!

Wow?

September, 2009 Wow! What a beautiful home you have in Brevard! We all loved the big porch and the view! We only wish we had more time here to enjoy! The house is beautifully decorated and I love that we have the same cookbooks. "Talk About Good" is one of my favorites and mine is just as worn! Our children were born in Louisiana! Thank you for sharing your home with us! Our fly fishermen were successful and my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed

I stayed in this beautiful house with 6 of my college friends (we are now in our late 30's) for a long weekend. The views are incredible and the house is so comfortable, welcoming and full of conveniences. The fireplace in the living room is so inviting for everyone to gather around with good wine and conversation. The location is perfectly enough isolated to be quiet and peaceful, but within easy driving distance to good hiking and downtown Brevard. We will definitely be back!

This house is fabulous!

The views are amazing and the porch so nice you may never spend any time in the house. It is well located-close to civilization if you want it but if not you never know it is there. For a real treat sleep on the sleeping porch and by all means watch the sunset with a cocktail and count the mountain ridges in the distance.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at the house in Brevard. The view from the porch is like nothing I've ever seen - so gorgeous! I loved spending time with my Salem girls and we couldn't have had a more perfect place to stay. Your house is so easily accessable and a quick drive from Charlotte. Thanks again for such an amazing weekend!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you girls could get together. It is nice to know that our Our Mountain House is a place for friends to reunite and share memories and more. Glad the weather was good and you were able to hike in the DuPont Forest, see those waterfalls, and enjoy "the porch".
