Brevard cabin description

This rustic and sophisticated cabin is nestled on a mountainside near the French Broad River. It is located on nine private acres secluded from the Partridge Hill main house where the owners live. Partridge Hill was once owned by the author Hamilton Basso who was a close friend of Thomas Wolfe. Wolfe and Basso spent many hours on Partridge Hill and would love the inviting ambience of the cabin known as The Partridge Nest. The cabin features two queen-sized bedrooms and two full baths with an additional sleeping area in the cozy writers loft. Amenities include a beautiful and well-stocked kitchen, dining area, wood-burning fireplace, and a full screened porch with a mountain view. The interior design is comfortable, inviting, and mountain inspired.

An ideal get-away spot, the cabin is secluded yet only four miles from Brevard where there are fine restaurants, the Brevard Music Center, Brevard College, and many great shops. The Pisgah National
Forest is just minutes away from your front door and offers some of the finest hiking, rock climbing, and fly fishing in the East. Majestic waterfalls are all around the area as well. The Brevard Music Center is renowned nationwide for it's summer musical presentations and it's students typically go on to major careers in music. Keith Lockhart is the artistic director and principal conductor.

You will forget time as you sit on the old-fashioned porch swing enjoying the mountain view or reading a book in the cozy loft. You will return to the real world rested, renewed and looking forward to your next visit to The Partridge Nest.

                                My new husband and I spent our honeymoon night at Partridge Nest. It was quiet, romantic and cozy. Everything was clean and neat, the bed was comfortable and attention was given to special details, like fresh flowers and a personal greeting at the entryway. There is a unique rustic charm to the cabin that you are unlikely to find anywhere else. Many times you try to find a cabin that is "rustic" but rustic translates to dirty, cold, no modern conveniences and uncomfortable....not true of the Partridge Nest! Also, sometimes people try to make their cabin look like a mountain retreat, but it just looks tacky. The Partridge Nest's decor is great. I loved every detail. The owners have taken great care to collect interesting items that make their cabin a true mountain hideaway. I can't wait to come back! The Partridge Nest is near Brevard NC, which has a number of quaint shops and restaurants. We didn't stay long, so we didn't get to go to all of the places we wanted, but there was no shortage of things to do. We want to come back in the summer so we can explore the waterfalls in the area. Check out the Land of Waterfalls website for suggestions on things to do in Brevard.

                                The Partridge Nest is rather like something out of a story book or magazine. The cottage and decor is stunning, quality furnishings and decor have been used and the setting is beautiful. The views from the screened porch are magical and the small garden/entranceway is very welcoming. There is everything you can think of that you may need and the house is spotlessly clean. One of my highlights was watching the hummingbird just outside the window every morning feed from the bird feeder. It is just a short drive to Brevard and is the perfect place for exploring the whole area. Charlie and Jean are great hosts and have a huge knowledge of the local area. Fabulous place to stay, Vicki and Jeff.

                                We stayed in the Partridge Nest with our 2 teenage kids for spring break and some hiking. We've done a few vrbos - all great - but this has been the best! The pictures do it justice - it really is that charming! It is small but "lives big". The feel is casual but luxuriously comfortable and the owners have thought of everything that a guest might want or need. It was easy to find and very close to Brevard but far enough from the city to feel like a mountain get away. It has a wonderful fireplace, a screened porch you won't want to leave and best of all you travelers - excellent bed linens, soft pillows, generous hot water with good water pressure and Starbucks coffee in the kitchen! Caution - you will get spoiled! We may never be able to stay in a hotel again.

                                Partridge Nest is truly a gem of a mountain retreat. Nestled in a peaceful and scenic setting yet still convenient to the shops and restaurants of Brevard. Our hosts, Charlie and Jean, provided a wonderful place for us to spend our 10th anniversary. The cabin is sophisticated yet rustic. We enjoyed the fresh flowers on the dining table, a cozy fire and the beautiful view. We enjoyed meeting Charlie and Jean and appreciated the recommendations on restaurants in the area. We will definitely be returning for another wonderful escape!!!!!!!!

                                The Partridge Nest was beautiful! Charlie and Jean have created a lovely spot for a restful vacation, complete with sunset views over the mountains from the screened porch. Numerous hand-crafted details adorn the cabin, giving it a unique but tasteful flair. Plenty of privacy, yet an easy drive into the town of Brevard or to Dupont or Pisgah for hikes and waterfalls.

                                My daughter and I have now stayed here twice- each time as I was dropping her off for summer camp in Brevard. We couldn't ask for a nicer cabin; spottlessly clean inside, tasteful decor, comfortable beds, beautiful view of mountains from the screened in porch and best of all.. less then a 10 min. drive to downtown Brevard! Also, the owners are very easy (and nice!) to deal with and do not require any deposit or cleaning fee.. a first! We look forward to returning next summer and hopefully this winter as well~ We love it!

                                My daughter married at Key Falls Inn close by last weekend. We stayed at the Partridge Nest which was heavenly. It was adorned with fabulous antiques and loaded with personality! The owners left fresh cut flowers and starbucks coffee. The setting was condusive to R and R post nuptial bliss. Linens were fresh and lovely, beds were comfy. The porch has a wonderful swing with an incredible view. The location is close to everything yet far removed. We strongly recommend the Nest! We will gladly return hopefully soon...
