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!

Downtown Brevard Rental

  • 4 of 5

The interior of the house was very clean and comfortable. It was a nice place for the week for the two of us plus our small dog. The second bedroom has a single-bed that I believe has a second mattress under the top one. I would not recommend it for a couple.

It was only about three blocks to downtown which made a nice walk for shopping and dinning.

Owner's Response: Yes, John. The second bedroom has a trundle bed with one below the other. I'm sorry if we failed in any way to make you comfortable, but hope that you will consider staying with us, again. Thank you for taking time to write your review.

beautiful house, great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a very cozy cottage-type house. Very comfortable stay; beautiful home decor. The main bathroom was huge. The kitchen was very good sized with all the amenities you want for a kitchen. TV included some DVDs if you didn't want to watch network TV. And, several board games were available to avoid watching TV. Though there are two bedrooms, one has only a day bed but it was comfortable. Big fenced in back yard allowed our dog to roam on her own a bit. The walk to town was not hard, about four blocks. The street outside was being repaved and wasn't near being done, so it was all torn up, but that is very temporary. We really enjoyed our stay
