About the owner: Peace Out!
In the Fall of 2001, Nan packed up her two dogs Osmond and Zoe and headed to the mountain town of Brevard, North Carolina to seek sanctuary. Upon arrival she was amazed by the natural beauty of the area and it’s calming influences. Enchanted by the Land of Waterfalls the Pisgah National Forest and the friendliness of the local people she decided to make Brevard her home the following summer.
Searching the area for the perfect property, located not too far from town but in the midst of the forest, she discovered Cantrell Mountain located near the DuPont State Forest. Wanting to share the natural beauty and love of dogs with others she bought the land on which she designed and built the cabins for DogWoods Retreat. Using responsible stewardship of the land and maintaining its natural beauty she has created the perfect private luxury dog & owner vacation.
Please join us to peace out, venture out and find serenity in these wonderful mountains of North Carolina!

History of DogWoods Retreat.
Our search started by looking for that perfect piece of land on which to build DogWoods Retreat. We had quite a check list, not so easy to fulfill, in this land of Waterfalls. We wanted to be on a mountain (3000 feet altitude) and in the forest to enjoy warmer winter and cooler summer temperatures. A gentle south facing terrain to keep our porches on the sunny side in winter and shady in the summer and the ability to have our spacious fenced yards. Being close to town with easy major highway (276) access. After lots of looking we finally found that perfect spot!
Now the plans…. Chalets with lots of decking and two level covered porches added 700 sq feet to enjoy the wonderful outdoors! 1400 square foot interiors with an upstairs large master bedroom and bath with granite counter tops and loft area. Main floor guest bedroom, bathroom, living room with wood-burning fireplace, dining room, kitchen with granite counter tops.
