About Jamie and Buddy Tompkins

We fell in love with Brevard several years ago as we began to consider retirement. We visited several larger and smaller communities in Western North Carolina, but Brevard seemed like the perfect place for us. Its proximity to two airports and other larger cities like Hendersonville and Asheville provide all of the amenities we could ever need without experiencing the heavy traffic and congestion we lived with in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area of North Texas! When we bought the Blue Bungalow to live in while we built our home in Pisgah Forest, we knew it would be a place to share with others who might enjoy the convenience of in town living while being so close to the many beautiful forests and attractions WNC has to offer. The moderate climate and majestic views of the NC mountains are the gifts we appreciate every day. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Jamie and Buddy Tompkins purchased this bungalow in 2012

Perfect Pet Friendly Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the Blue Bungalow in October. It was in a centralized spot close to everything. You can make quick trips, to Highlands, Hendersonville, Asheville, Chimney Rock, etc. We had a wonderful time in downtown Brevard at the shops. We wished we could have stayed longer and tried some more restaurants. We ate at Rocky's and Jaime's, and both were excellent. The fenced back yard was fabulous for our pets. They had plenty of action between the birds, grey squirrels, and the famous white squirrels. After all the action, we were able to relax by the fire pit. It was a smooth stay from the booking process to the deposit refund. You will not be sorry if you stay here!

All we needed within easy distance of downtown

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we needed for a quick weekend getaway in Brevard. Much more comfortable and with far more amenities than a hotel room, and within an easy walk or drive of the center of town. We enjoyed being able to come back to the Bungalow to rest throughout our long day in town. The owners have carefully thought of everything one might need, including lots of extra surprises throughout. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely book the Blue Bungalow again.

Great location, met our family and furbabies needs perfectly

  • 4 of 5

We were traveling to Brevard College for scholarship day, with our oldest son. This was the perfect location for us. It allowed my husband and our younger child to go shopping downtown and grab lunch while the older son and I went to scholarship day and made it easy in the afternoon to meet up before another meeting at school. The house is perfect size two very nice bedrooms two nice bathrooms all the things that you’ll need there except some groceries if you plan to cook but there’s plenty of restaurants very close by. Also our two furbabies went and they loved the backyard I absolutely loved the property and it was so nicely appointed for them as well. The owners are very receptive to answering any questions or needs that you may have and do a very nice job of having house perfectly ready for you when you arrive.... we will be back to the Blue Bungalow

Cute, comfortable, clean and close to town. This was the perfect property for our stay in Brevard.

  • 5 of 5

In between taking advantage of the many outdoor activies available in and near Brevard and we enjoyed relaxing at the Blue Bungalow. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were very clean and supplied with lots of towels. The kitchen was also clean and stocked with all the necessary service and cookware. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit and game night in the cozy living room.

Sweet Bungalow Conveniently Located Near Downtown Brevard

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house. The furniture is eclectic and comfortable. There is plenty of room. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the fenced in backyard even has a covered porch area so you can hang outside while it is raining. Town is a four block walk, and there is a well-manicured park right across the street.
