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

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.

                                                                      Don E.

                                                                      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.......

                                                                      Owner's Response:

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!
