Brevard cabin description

NEW: Wi-Fi !!

Mountain Song is a comfortable two bedroom cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Rosman, North Carolina. Its multi-level decks allow for covered outdoor dining, as well as open air viewing of the mountain ridges rising beyond Rock Creek and Lake Jocassee. This two-bedroom cabin has two full bathrooms, a washer and dryer, and a modern kitchen with all-electric appliances ... including a dishwasher. Just opened for rental, the cabin has been furnished with comfortable new mattresses on all beds.

Mountain Song sits atop a sunny South-facing ridge surrounded by the high peaks of North Carolina's Gorges State Park and South Carolina's Jocassee Gorges. Easy access to these wilderness preserves, as well as Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Parkway, provides some of the best hiking in the eastern United States. The area offers many other outdoor activities too, such as mountain biking and river rafting.

Mountain Song's quiet atmosphere makes it ideal for reading, meditating, or simply relaxing on the deck.

Mountain Song is within easy driving distance of Brevard, North Carolina, home of the Brevard Music Festival, one of the country's most exciting summer music festivals. The Brevard area is also a center for the creation of handmade pottery, with several galleries offering traditional and creative ceramics at reasonable prices.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I am a museum curator, and formerly worked with McKissick Museum at the University of South Carolina. This work informed me about the folk life and history of North and South Carolina. I enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities, as well as attending concerts, such as those featured at the Brevard Music Festival.

                      Why the Owner Chose Brevard:
                      Our cabin, named Mountain Song, sits atop a sunny South-facing ridge surrounded by high peaks. Located in the Round Mountain area of Transylvania County, North Carolina, it commands a view of the peaks of North Carolina's Gorges State Park and South Carolina's Jocassee Gorges wilderness preserve. It is within easy driving distance of Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The area offers some of the best hiking in the eastern United States, and also access to other outdoor activities such as visiting waterfalls and river rafting. The area is also a major center for pottery and other crafts. The Brevard Music Festival, about a half hour's drive away, offers world-class musical events all summer.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Mountain Song cabin is located in a part of Transylvania County that is relatively undiscovered, very close to the eastern entrance to Gorges State Park. We have easy access to Pisgah National Forest and all its trails, too. Transylvania County is known for its waterfalls, which number in the hundreds. Several of them, especially those in Dupont State Forest--also a short drive away - were used as locations for famous movies. When we aren't hiking, we often go into downtown Brevard, which has wonderful shops and restaurants. The cabin is only about an hour's drive down US Highway 178 to one of the few working grist mills in upstate South Carolina - Hagood Mill. At this historic site there are regular shows of authentic mountain crafts, performances of folk and bluegrass music and you can see grits and corn meal being ground in the old fashioned way. Even if you don't set foot off the property, just being at the cabin is so relaxing. The view from the deck is superb, and when we are not hiking or taking part is one of the activities in the Brevard area, such as the Brevard Music Festival concerts, we enjoy simply sitting on the deck with a good book and a glass of wine. We also enjoy collecting handmade pottery, which can be found at several studios and galleries in the Brevard area.
