Why David Sams chose Asheville Area

We moved to this area in 2000 and just love it!

We are glad we can share it with others.

Our cottage is situated on a quiet street on an acre of woodland. There is a beautiful stream flowing behind the cottage and you can see a waterfall from the deck off the secluded Master bedroom deck.

Loved the fishing

  • 5 of 5

I, being the only girl with two men, was more than happy to find out the guys had reserved a cabin with rooms and bathrooms!

It's very cute! They did a good job!

We arrived late Friday to wake early Saturday and go fly fishing all day on the East Fork and Davidson rivers. We had good luck.

It's Sunday, and we are about to go again.

Thanks for letting us stay!

Oh, and thanks for all the great movies to choose from.

Clean, Quiet, Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a three night stay at this cozy cottage nestled in a wooded area. The cottage was clean and comfortable and we spent time on all three of the porches. A grill is provided on the property and we cooked outside one night. My husband is an avid cyclist and brought his bike, enjoying the beauty of the land and challenging climbs! We loved exploring the waterfalls at Dupont State Forest and neighboring Brevard with it's lovely downtown area. We ate at Magpie Meats & Three, a new restaurant in Brevard, that offers delicious southern BBQ with a twist and enjoyed The Hub and Pisgah Tavern. Our dog Stella was welcomed as well and made for a wonderful visit in the area. We recommend staying in this clean and affordable home.

Tranquility and a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Waking to the sound of songbirds and a brook while surrounded by a green canopy will stay in our memories. The cabin was comfy and has several porches which invite sitting outside and taking in the beautiful sourroundings. We slept heavenly and we will be back! Our dog adopted this home basically immediately - nice fenced outdoor area for him to roam around.

Beautiful place for a get-away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful mountain cabin for a get-away weekend to see my sister. We came from Michigan, she came from Florida. The cabin was perfect with all the amenities one could want. The three porches were all enjoyed, the cabin was clean and on our first night it was very chilly so the fireplace was wonderful. You are close to Brevard, to visiting waterfalls, driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, to Ashville, and to driving in the Smokey Mountains. It is very quiet at this private location and you will not go wrong to stay here. We are talking of coming back in several years!
