About Nan & Will Long
Peace Out! In the Fall of 2001, Nan packed up her two dogs Osmond and Zoe and headed to the mountain town of Brevard, North Carolina to seek sanctuary. Upon arrival she was amazed by the natural beauty of the area and it’s calming influences. Enchanted by the Land of Waterfalls the Pisgah National Forest and the friendliness of the local people she decided to make Brevard her home the following summer. Searching the area for the perfect property, located not too far from town but in the midst of the forest, she discovered Cantrell Mountain located near the DuPont State Forest. Wanting to share the natural beauty and love of dogs with others she bought the land on which she designed and built the cabins for DogWoods Retreat. Using responsible stewardship of the land and maintaining its natural beauty she has created the perfect private luxury dog & owner vacation. Please join us to peace out, venture out and find serenity in these wonderful mountains of North Carolina! Namaste, Nan, Will, Talia & Pearl

Luxurious Dog Friendly Cabin
Firefly Cabin is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing, restful vacation with your four legged family member. The cabin is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. We enjoyed the privacy of the woods and the fenced in yard is a great bonus! We enjoyed our stay very much and our dog did too. We look forward to staying at Dogwoods Retreat again.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and the pup enjoyed the fenced yard. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Wonderful house nestled in the woods
This is our second trip, staying at this house. We love it because we can bring our dog who can enjoy the fenced in yard. The house is well kept with nice finishes. The outside porches are also a real bonus. We will definitely come back.
It was nice to host you and the dog again. We put in those spacious fenced yards because we try to find it when we vacation with our dogs and they are hard to find and it is usual tiny if we do find a place with one. We look forward to seeing you again sometime.
Very nice and clean home.
It's a very nice and well maintained property. We were impressed with how clean it was. The owner was quick to respond to our request. A perfect place for people who want to be out in the woods and just escape for a few days. There is no view and part of the ride up the road will be on gravel, although not a significant distance. The wifi works well and as do all the home"s systems. Also, the biggest plus for this home is that they allow dogs and given that, you would never know one had ever been in the home......spotless.......
We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the cabin spotless. Thank you for staying with us.
Beautiful cabin with tons of personal touches.
The owners were so welcoming and responsive. The cabin was beautiful. Loved our time there.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to see you again!
This place is beyond beautiful, relaxing, and full of thoughtful touches. Our dog Abby loved the big fluffy dog beds! We so look forward to staying there again.
I guess we got everything right if we rated "perfection"! Thank you. We look forward to seeing you again sometime.

This is the place to take your humans, they are going to love it here as much as I did. Perfect get a way.... woot woot
Lol! We certainly didn't forget about the humans stay with us. Our luxury memory foam mattresses and hot tubs are all for your people, so pups remember to bring them too. Also they need to come so they can drive you here, might be kinda hard for you to reach the gas pedal unless you're a Great Dane!

You are centrally located to all of the wonderful sights of the mountains. The gateway to the Pisgah National Forest with its 157,000 acres of forest and its hundreds of miles of hiking trails lies just below. At the top of the Forest road lies the Blue Ridge Parkway with high altitudes of over 6400 feet and some of the most beautiful sights on the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. On the other side of you is the DuPont State Forest where The Hunger Games was filmed with 10,000 acres of trails and stunning waterfalls. Within less than an hour lies the city of Asheville with its historic downtown and the Biltmore Estate in the opposite direction are the quaint towns of Hendersonville and Lake Lure. Head south and the road takes you over to Caesar's Head State Park in South Carolina. Yet another way will lead you to Lake Toxaway and further on to the towns of Highlands and Cashiers. There are many great activities in the Brevard area such as world-class trout fishing, hiking, rock climbing, rafting, river tubing, horseback riding, zip lining and mountain biking. We are happy to point you in the right directions for activities that might suit you and suggest some of our favorite hikes. The Western Mountains of North Carolina are known for their hospitality so come and join us in the mountains for the ultimate vacation experience with your best friend!
