                One of the first national forests in the Eastern United States, Pisgah National Forest was established by the federal government in 1916. It covers over 500,000 acres in twelve counties in Western North Carolina and contains original portion of George W. Vanderbilt’s once-vast Biltmore Estate. The roots of American Forest Conservation lie in Pisgah at the Cradle of Forestry, the brainchild of George Vanderbilt, Frederick Law Olmstead and Gifford Pinchot. Transylvania County contains a significant portion of the forest, as well as some of its most memorable landmarks, including Looking Glass Rock, Looking Glass Falls, Sliding Rock and the Cradle of Forestry Historic Site and Museum. http://www.cradleofforestry.c

       A visit to the center starts with a walk around the hatchery raceways. Once trout reach fingerling size, they feed and grow in a series of 54 outdoor raceways.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: This was not purchased as a vacation home, but when we met and married, we each came with a house. We love Brevard and don't want to give up our connection to the area. We decided to name our house 'Adele's Retreat' after the birth of our daughter, Adele, in 2009. This is her enjoying enjoying some 'wa-wa' time underneath Bridal Veil Falls in Dupont.

              Why the Owner Chose Brevard:
              Brevard is a beautiful place - the air is cleaner. Your pace slows as you become a part of this small town. It's so much kinder to the spirit than the big city. My husband had been riding (road and trail) in this area for 10 years before he finally decided to settle here. And then life took us away... We keep the house with the hope that it will someday make sense for our family to live here. We hope you'll enjoy our home during your stay.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Something to think about: If you have a rental home somewhere (ANYwhere - worldwide!) we are open to the idea of trading time in our house for time in yours. When you visit you'll enjoy art from around the globe, evidence of our globe-trotting ways.
