Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

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 has 3 bedrooms, a full kitchen, large family room that has room to stretch out and relax. The yard has a firepit 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.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a few days, the house is very cozy and was very clean, beds are comfortable and the outdoors were great. A bit out in the wild, but very quite and enjoyable site. Owners were great, very friendly and on top of every detail. Thanks to them for making our time there more enjoyable.

Perfect fit for biking weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time staying at Carolina Spicewood and the house was exactly what we needed for a guys weekend biking in Pisgah and DuPont. The house was clean and exactly what we expected. One of the best deals available on VRBO in my opinion. Junette and Mike were very nice and even provided firewood for the fire pit out back. I plan to stay here again in the future.

Cozy home

  • 4 of 5

Even though we came for business, we really enjoyed our stay. Everything you needed was there. Loved the back yard just wish we could have taken advantage of the fire pit and seating area. Off the beaten path but very cozy stay. Thanks for allowing us to stay!
