New Listing - In The Heart Of Dupont State Forest, Hike, Bike, Waterfalls, Swim

This newly renovated 3 bedroom, 2 full bathroom house is located halfway between Brevard and Hendersonville. Asheville and Greenville are both within an hour. This house is minutes from all 6 of DuPont State Forests' parking lots. Caesar's Head State Park is less than 5 miles and Pretty Place Chapel is 7 miles away.

DuPont State Recreational Forest is an outdoor lover's dream with many waterfalls and 86 miles of hiking/biking/horse back trails on over 10,000 acres. It's the reason Transylvania County is called "The Land of Waterfalls" and is one of the top Mountain Biking destinations in the Southeast. The first Hunger Games and Last of the Mohicans were filmed here.

The house has plenty of parking for 3-4 cars, a nice front porch for sitting/swinging, plus a big deck out back for hanging out with the family and cooking out on the new gas grill. The kitchen is wide open with new counter tops, newly refinished cabinets full of new dishes, pots, pans and lots of space for fixing meals. There is plenty of seating everywhere for relaxing, solid hickory floors throughout the house, new bathrooms and fixtures. The sofas, 3 beds, towels, linens, washer, dryer and 55" Vizio TV with Direct TV are all new. The house has 2 fireplaces inside and a fire pit outside. Firewood is stacked under the shed in the back of the property that renters can use at no additional charge. So bring your Smores stuff and wire coat hangers.

This is a Smoke and Pet Free house, NO SMOKING or PETS allowed.

Thanks for looking.

About Patti Dever and Sam Derrick

We've vacationed all over using VRBO for many years and always found ourselves coming back to the mountains, staying near Hendersonville, Brevard and DuPont State Forest. We love to mountain bike the trails, hike to the waterfalls and swim in Fawn Lake. We were actually biking in DuPont when they were filming The Hunger Games.

Patti Dever and Sam Derrick purchased this House in 2016

Why Patti Dever and Sam Derrick chose Little River

Location, Location, Location. As soon as we saw the house was for sale, we knew we wanted to be here, close to DuPont State Forest. It is the most convenient house to all the DuPont parking lots. We can bike early, hike later and swim in Fawn Lake in the afternoon. Then come home and sit outside by the campfire while supper is prepared on the back deck.

What makes this House unique

Staying here, you can get to any of the parking lots in the park in minutes. You can get there early, go home for lunch and back in the afternoon if you like. It's like having the whole place in your backyard. Plus the Cedar Mountain Café is only 200 yards away for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

                                                          Perfect for us in every way. Clean, inviting, close to waterfalls, trails, eating out or eating in, shopping. Private and quiet. All you need to take is your food and personal items.

                                                          Nice, clean and perfect location for both DuPont State Forest and Pisgah Forest. Owners were helpful and easy to contact when we decided to stay an extra day. Clean and we'll appointed. Thanks and we'll be back!

                                                          Amazing place to stay!! Loved it and already looking forward to a return visit.

                                                          Since we were attending the Bassmaster Classic, this rental house was a little out there, but I couldn't have been more impressed with the house and surroundings. From local trout fishing, to nearby (20 minutes) little towns that offered everything you might need, this rental home exceeded all expectations and I am already looking forward to a return visit. Clean, fun and a perfect house for anyone who LOVES the outdoors. Cheers!!

                                                          Happy New Year!!

                                                          Liz S.

                                                          The property was beautiful. My kids had so much fun playing in the yard and playing on the rocks. We had snow which was awesome. The home is very clean and comfortable. The non stick pans are a great bonus for cooking. We hiked many waterfalls and enjoyed every minute of our visit. The fireplace and the ample supply of firewood is really nice. Love the back porch. The host are great too. They call to make sure you arrive and let you know if you have any questions feel free to call. I believe they mean it. Very friendly people. Can't wait to go back. Btw my son got ENGAGED to the most wonderful girl in the world while we were there to end the perfect trip and the year. Yay!! Enjoy.

                                                          Great place to stay for mountain bikers!

                                                          Great rental home, Excellent location!

                                                          Matthew H.

                                                          We rented this home for a few days as we explored Dupont State Forest and Brevard and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Patti and Sam were very helpful with any questions and emailed us to see if everything was okay after we arrived. The house itself was nicer than the photos and had everything we needed for our stay. I can't say enough about the location if you enjoy biking, hiking, or the outdoors. You're only a mile from one of the trailheads and you have a lot of privacy at the house. We will definitely check to see if this property is available the next time we come down to the area. Thank you!
