Property was very clean and well maintained. The location is very efficient to all falls and hikes

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 cabin and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent cabin that was perfect for us. Very clean had everything we needed. The view was gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

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.

Hilltop Serenity

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we topped the last hill and the cabin came into view, we knew we'd made the right choice. I felt like Little Red Riding Hood, but we never ran into any big, bad wolves! It was an extremely peaceful week beginning with beautiful, sunny weather and ending with a couple of days of beautiful, rainy weather. Sitting on the porch in one of the 4 big rocking chairs listening to the raindrops on the metal roof was so relaxing and the misty fog just added to the magic 'lost in the forest' feel. We left the cabin almost every day and even after a few steady showers and some heavy rainfall, we never had any problem with the gravel road (driving a low-to-the-ground sedan). The road is very well maintained. If you turn left at the bottom of the road, instead of right toward the paved road, the gravel road takes you 7 miles or so through beautiful scenery - gorges, lakes, and a dam.

As for the cabin itself, it has everything you need in every room, and a charcoal grill outside.

We loved the trails through the property and the trout pond. We don't fish, but we loved watching them swim around as we walked around the pond.

We plan to return with more groceries and less activities so we can spend more time just enjoying the cabin and the grounds.

Thanks for sharing your Gem in the Forest!!

Great launching spot for Dupont and surrounding area. Our 4 year old granddaughter certainly enjoyed her first trip to the area.
