About Paul Tinkler

Paul and Libby grew up in Greenwood, SC, with the Blue Ridge in their back yard. For many years have lived in Charleston, SC, where they raised their daughter and son.

Paul Tinkler purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Paul Tinkler chose North Carolina

In 2001 they bought property on Nancy Mountain. They completed their dream house in 2003 and recently decided to share it with others on VRBO. Blue Ridge Manor is convenient to 'city life' in Brevard, yet remote. A perfect location for day hikes or for simply enjoying the surrounding natural beauty without leaving the back deck.The area is rich in history beginning with the Cherokees and moving on to moonshine production and timbering.

What makes this cottage unique

The home is a short hike from some beautiful waterfalls, a serene pond and the public lands in South Carolina. Jocassee Gorges State Park and Dupont Forest are nearby. You can simply relax and listen for the hoot of the barred owl or roam the adjoining 400 acres in hopes of spotting a bear or a turkey.

My friends, and I, found the home to be spacious, beautiful, and well stocked. The views were stunning. It would be real easy to check in and never leave.

Beautiful, spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

Our cycling team of both road and mountain bikers enjoyed this beautiful spot. It was a bit difficult to access due to the gravel road, but it was well worth it with a gorgeous view from the back porch. There were plenty of bedrooms for everyone to sleep, and enough bathrooms to accommodate the vast quantities of showers needed after a long day exploring the mountains on two wheels.

Our previous living arrangements fell through last minute, and Paul was very accommodating and helpful. The seclusion is nice, the views worth it, and we enjoyed our stay here very much! Highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed the stay. The area is ideal for cyclists. We agree that it is well worth the trip down the gravel road. The solitude is well worth it. We hope y'all will come visit again! Paul

Beautiful secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house and the land it rests on is absolutely gorgeous. The back deck looks upon a far and wide landscape of mountains.

I would recommend this vacation rental for anyone of any age who is a fan of the outdoors. Honestly, the price is more than worth it for such a large house in a beautiful area.

Magnificient house in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We spend three great nights & four days in this wonderful house - there were 14 of us including 4 kids 1 to 5 years old. It is very beautfil and very well kept house in the very scenic and secluded setting. The house is very well equipped and has 6 bedrooms, each with own bathroom so staying with the large group is extremely comfortable. Fantastic kitchen with all the equipment needed, spacious common areas and great sunset views from the porch It is up on a mountain meaning that last 3.5 miles are gravel road so you or SUV would be the best option to get you there. It is less than an hour drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway and a little over that to Asheville. Definitely would recommend this to friends.
