Enjoy a quiet retreat in a private wooded setting nestled in the WNC mountains, just outside of Brevard. Although you may feel remote, you'll actually be an amazing short drive to many destinations, that is sure to please anyone! The house was built in a free-flowing floor plan (all rooms connect, no hallways), which was common in rural areas. This older house has a full kitchen, dining room and large family area that has room to stretch out and relax. There are three bedrooms and a large bathroom that is built at the end of the house. The yard has a fire pit that you can enjoy and there is small charcoal grill to cook on. Under the canopy of a huge oak is a homemade picnic table and a two person swing. Here in Transylvania County we have 3 different park lands that provide miles of hiking, biking and horse trails. Fly-fishing, water tubing, rock climbing & picnicking and don't forget to view some of our 250 waterfalls. You are less than 5 miles from the Pisgah National Forest, 15 minutes to DuPont State Park and 30 minutes to Gorges State Park. If the outdoors aren't to your liking, you are just minutes away from Brevard, for dining, art/crafts, music and shops. If you get a chance, check out some of our festivals.

Above and beyond expectations!
We walked into a warm cozy cottage 1/4 mile into the woods in the mountains. Like going to Grandmas old home place. The cubbards had everything I forgot and then some, there were treats for the kids, everything was just perfect for our 3 day adventure in Pisgah National Forest...... will go back someday for sure!
Great location and fair price for a cycling vacation
This property I have used before while down here for my team's annual training camps. Being located in Penrose, Dupont State Forest is short distance by bike, and the road routes we enjoy (Ceaser's Head, 276 to the BRP, through Dupont) are accessible right from the property. The car port is also great for keeping the bikes covered at night, with a washing area right out back. Mudroom is a great buffer from the living quarters. Used the fire pit for the first time and that was enjoyable (or maybe it was the smores).
A private mountain!
We are from Jacksonville, FL. And wanted to get away with our boys for a nice "Fall" weekend. My boys loved the privacy of being on a large piece of property and enjoyed the fire pit every night.
The owners were awesome to us. The house was decorated with Halloween and Fall decorations throughout the house and property, along with a bowl full of candy and everything we needed to make Smores. I mentioned to the owners beforehand that my son was really excited to make a fire, and she told us that there would be plenty of wood for us! And there was plenty, chopped and ready to go. As an added bonus, there was a box with lint and toilet paper roll tube as an easy fire starter. We found that extremely clever and it worked like a charm. We really enjoyed our short time there. We are not used to privacy that a huge lot of land gives you. So this was great. We did go to the Biltmore Estate and it was about 40 minutes away. This was so much nicer than staying in a hotel. Overall, I am so glad we discovered this little home on the side of a mountain and we hope to return someday in the future.
We had a very nice weekend in a lovely quiet place.
It is a very nice house, restful, quiet and surrounded by lovely fall colors. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and on a rainy Sunday, the house was a cozy place for reading. The house is well furnished with everything we needed. We brought our own food. of course and enjoyed cooking on a great gas stove.
My husband and I stayed here 2 nights over Labor Day weekend....home had everything we needed and it was in the perfect location to be able to visit Brevard and Hendersonville. Owners were very responsive.
It was everything I could hope for and more. Everything that you forgot to pack was there. It was quite and peaceful. The home and grounds are very well kept.
