                  Car: Necessary

                  Summer Haven and Cedar Mountain is surrounded by state and national forests. The home is located in an historic neighborhood and feels very secluded and private. However, you're just a half mile from the main road and even a breakfast/lunch spot (easy to walk to). Check out our video for more visuals!!

                  There is a true abundance of world class trout streams for fly fishing, crystal clear creeks and rivers for kayaking, hundreds of waterfalls and thousands of acres of forest with hundreds or thousands of miles of trails for hiking, biking, or horse back riding within minutes of this home. This is an outdoor person's paradise!!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We love adventure and beautiful places. We have been passionate kayakers, mountain bikers, cyclists, fly fishermen and explorers of new places for most of our lives.

                  Why the Owner Chose Brevard:
                  We had the opportunity to purchase this lot in the Stone's Lake community in 2005, which was just too good to pass up! We jumped on the chance and built this home as an investment. This location has a wonderful long history, a beautiful chapel for our closest neighbor and many wild places to explore within just a short drive. This is a paradise location. We created this home to share with others.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is such a quiet and peaceful spot. I love walking the dogs down the road to a little creek with a swimming hole just big enough for cooling them off. Being able to ride your bike from the home to go mountain biking or cycling for the day is amazing.
