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

Wonderful house nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very nice and clean home.

  • 4 of 5

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: 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! Nan & Will

Excellent pet friendly rental in close proximity to Brevard / Dupont Forest

  • 5 of 5

Had a very pleasant experience staying at DogWoods Retreat. Location is only minutes from the city limits of Brevard and the south entrance to Dupont St Forest. The fenced yard is very convenient plus I felt comfortable walking our dogs (leashed) on the gravel roads in the development.

The house is very clean, with amble space for 4 adults, 1 child and our dogs. WiFi service was great, with the consideration that cell service in the area is weak. No complaints.

Owners are very quick to respond to inquiries. Would not hesitate to recommend this property and look forward to staying here again.
