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!

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.

Beautiful Brevard home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Blue Bungalo. It was a lovely little home right in downtown Brevard. It was very accessible to shops and restaurants and close by to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The home it's self was beautifully decorated and very comfortable and cozy. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Brevard. We even got to bring our dog Winthrop. He enjoyed looking at the white squirrels in the fenced in backyard. This was a great treat for us. we had a wonderful time and hope to be back very soon.

Comfortable cottage is walking distance to sweet Brevard

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay in the Blue Bungalow. It's a perfect size for 1 or 2 people and is close to downtown and the library and other amenities.

One caution: there was the smell of mold throughout the house. On a warm day I opened all the windows to air it out which helped for a while, but the odor returned after a day or so.
