About the neighborhood:
It is most important to us that people know what they are getting before they arrive so their expectations are met or (we hope) exceeded. We've been renting our house since right after our daughter was born in 2009. The neighborhood is safe and many of our guests enjoy walking. They often remark on the friendliness of the neighbors and the community spirit. Directly next door on one side of our house is a retiree, on the other is a peaceful, private, family garden. Overall the neighborhood is quiet, but there are sometimes children playing in the streets and the occasional family gathering.

Unlike gated communities (like at Cashiers, Connestee, etc.), Brevard is a mixed income, working-class mountain town. Our neighborhood is diverse and has individually owned, single family homes. The neighbors all work in Brevard or adjacent towns – or are retirees. One of the houses down the street has a bit of “mountain character”, but in general it's a well kept neighborhood where people take pride in their homes.

*Please do email or call me immediately if you find this description does not match your experience in our home.*

The booking site (VRBO / Homeaway) has recently added a “BOOK IT NOW” feature that allows customers to immediately make a reservation if a credit card number is provided. We allow our customers to use this feature with our listing, but please note the following:

1) Your reservation is not actually confirmed unless we explicitly “Accept” it within 24 hours. If we don’t accept in 24 hours, the reservation is automatically declined by the system (not us).

2) We have had instances where customers have used “Book It Now” – but some of the information in the reservation request was not exactly what the customer needed. To avoid this issue, we will send you a message and ask that you confirm the details of your stay before we click ACCEPT. Please let us know if corrections are needed. Sometimes these corrections do affect your price.


We do offer discounts at our discretion for multi-week stays. We are also able to break your charges into two payments if desired. Please ask.


Our typical minimum rental is 3-nights unless we are less than 4 weeks from the date of the stay, when it goes down to a 2-night minimum. This excludes holiday weekends and is subject to owner approval.

Thank you for your interest in our home.

Even if you don't stay with us, we are sure you will love Brevard!

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.
