About Elisabeth Perez
Hi Everyone, I'm an avid mountain biker and hiker. I love the mountains and invite you to enjoy them too. As the owner of Brightwaters Vacation Rentals, (several cabins, cottages and the historic Guesthouse) I take great pride in creating a home away from home for my guests and, as a host, I've met a lot of great people. I'm happy to share my knowledge and experience with you when you visit Western North Carolina.
Why Elisabeth Perez chose Laurel Park
Brightwaters, established in 1938, has a celebrated history. Today, the fully renovated flats (Garden level and the upstairs Verandah level) offer guests all of the comforts of an elegant Southern home. Each flat is a complete home - 1200-1500 sq. ft., offering large, airy rooms. And to celebrate the home's 80th birthday, book 3 nights and get the 3rd night for only $80 through May 24, 2018! The Brightwaters Guesthouse was originally built in 1938 as an 8 bedroom, 6 bathroom guesthouse. The founder, Samuel Childs, built the Brightwaters Guesthouse and Lodge and Dining Room, as well as 25 cottages on his 400 acres, in the surrounding area. The entire resort was called Brightwaters Estates, and was frequented by guests, primarly from Florida, looking to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cool, mountain air. On the grounds of the Guesthouse, Childs renovated an 1800's one-room schoolhouse to make it the dining hall for guests staying at the Guesthouse and the surrounding cottages. In the 1970's, the Guesthouse was renovated into 2 flats (one upstairs and one downstairs). Each flat had 2 bedrooms/2 baths, a living room, a dining and a kitchen. And the former, interior staircase was removed. Today, the Brightwaters Guesthouse takes back it's original name and has been refreshed and restored to it's former glory, exposing the refinished hardwood floors and tongue and groove paneling. The Brightwaters Guesthouse offer guests the opportunity to step back in time and enjoy it's timeless elegance. The Garden level flat is a great house for getting away to enjoy the outdoors. Very close to all of the best mountain biking and hiking trails - DuPont, Pisgah, Bent Creek and Mills River. Accommodates a maximum of 4 people. Minutes to grocery and restaurants. Only 11 miles from the Asheville Airport. The Brighwaters Guesthouse is centrally located to dining, breweries and entertainment in Hendersonville, Brevard and Asheville, as well as other areas, such as Tryon and

What a great place to come home to!!
I stayed at this property on very short notice when traveling to Hendersonville for a family emergency. I am a frequent VRBO-renter in Hendersonville, but none of my usual places were available. Turns out, it could not have worked out better! Everything about the experience was perfect- and I mean EVERYTHING. Elisabeth was so accommodating and kind. I told her that I was to arrive after midnight and she made sure that there were plenty of lights inside and out so I didn't have to fumble about to get inside. And, there was a delicious little cake waiting (I was starving, so that was amazing!). So welcoming! As for the home, I can truly say that pictures don't do it justice. The house is beautiful, the rooms are large, the beds and linens are top quality, the decor is lovely. The kitchen is well appointed (even tho' the only thing I used was one wine glass...don't judge me :) In addition to tending to my family emergency, I had to work remotely and the wi-fi was fast and reliable. Even simple creature comforts - like a really good hair dryer, good water pressure in the shower, an uncomplicated front-door lock, a simplified check-out process, a lovely outdoor front porch - made it feel like home at the end of several very stressful days. The location is very pretty and just minutes from everything I needed.
Thank you, Elisabeth, for your kind hospitality. You made a difficult trip so much more enjoyable, and I appreciate your consideration. I will definitely return!
Brightwaters Stone Home Rental
The home was beautifully appointed, clean and extremely comfortable. It was wonderful and more than exceeded our expectations. The living areas were very nice as were the bedrooms. Elisabeth had all kinds of information available on area attractions and responded immediately to any questions via email or phone. She provided excellent suggestions regarding the dining choices in the area. Top notch service. We will definitely be going there again in the future!
Wonderfully designed, clean - the pictures don’t do it justice.
Would like to come again, very welcoming and in a great location to explore all that the area has to offer.
Very peaceful and relaxing.
Thanks so much for a peaceful and relaxing week. I appreciated the clean home. And Elisabeth, thanks for all of the wonderful suggestions of activities and restaurants. We hit them all! I forgot to write in your guest book so I hope you get this note. Blessings. Gena B
A nicely decorated former guest house. Plenty of space. Beds were comfortable.
Beautiful landscaping, house, and wonderful owner!
The first rental I've been to where the house is better all around than the photos on the internet. The owner met us with a smile and was very charming and you could tell by talking to her that she truly cares about her clients as well as her property. We were extremely comfortable and we plan to come to the house in the future!
