Pros and Con List -.August 2016
Pros: Fair rate, close to state forest, nice hiking trails behind cabin, fairly clean, nicely decorated, good supply of essentials (paper towels, towels, soap, etc), good supply of pots and pans in kitchen, etc. Plenty of space/beds for people, hot/cold water, nice large porch on front of cabin, neat and tidy grounds. Supply of books and magazines to read was a nice touch. AC works very well. Everything was simple and useful in the cabin - nothing took away from the beautiful logs and fireplace. Simple clean up list (wash and put up dishes, sweep, take trash to their garage building on way out, put all towel and bedding in hamper).
Cons: **$3.00 per pound trout fee** this fee needs to be listed on here instead of a note left on the table at the cabin upon check in. Had we known of the fee we would have just left our fishing gear at home! I understand the cost involved to stock a small pond, but a 1-fish per person limit would have been just fine. Cleanliness.. the cabin could have been cleaned better. Hair in the shower, half empty Gatorade bottle stuck in the couch,.dried food on dishes, etc. Just general cleaning issues, nothing too bad. Beds are uncomfortable - to each their own, but IMHO the old mattress could stand replacing (only slept in master, so I do not.know the comfort status of the loft beds. Privacy.. while we were thankful to be given space and not contacted, we didn't know the owners lived right across the small trout pond. Lastly *road to cabin* would be somewhat difficult for a driver with a low clearance vehicle that is not accustomed to driving mountain roads.
P.S. Cotton strip drenched in peppermint oil stuffed in vent was so strong our eyes burned and watered upon walking into cabin. We removed strip of cotton and opened the windows. A small defuser might work better for this approach.
P.S.S. Visitors to the area make sure to check out sliding rock for some summer water fun there are two great roadside ice cream establishments in town of Brevard!
Enjoyed our visit to the cabin. Definitely in the "woods". My two 14 year old boys loved it. They TRIED to catch every fish in the pond. Convenient to visiting the Pisgah National Park and the Dupont State Park. The waterfalls were beutiful.
My wife and I enjoyed this mountain cabin thoroughly . It is very quiet, clean, safe and beautiful. Internet works great and the trout pond is stocked . Very easy to get in and get out without issue. All falls and hikes in Brevard are close and easy to get to. It is just what we were looking for in a mountain cabin.
Great property and house! Beautiful surroundings and close to everything! The owners made the house warm and inviting, couldn't have been better! Perfect vacation for our family. We will definitely be coming back.
My family and I loved our week of vacation at this little GEM. If you're a mountain biker and I am, you're in the middle of mtn biking heaven. A short warm up ride of 2 miles or less and you're in DuPont State Forest. My wife and daughters loved sitting on the porch in the rockers relaxing and reading every evening. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.
The owners take great pride in their property and it shows. The cabin is really clean and comfortable.
I would recommend this for anyone. We had fun fishing in the pond and caught some nice trout. The road up to the property was steep in couple places with gravel. I was able to get up there in my Kia optima but it might have scratched the underneath. Brevard is only 20 minutes away. I would definitely go there again, it was absolutely beautiful.
