About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

The Once Moore condo is just eight miles south of Brevard, North Carolina. On Route #276 (Greenville Highway) with easy access on paved roads. A one-level cabin/condo (bungalow style) in a two-unit building with only six entrance steps. No one above or below. You'll enjoy relaxing on the screened porch overlooking the 17th hole of the Executive Golf Course while deer graze lazily.( click on UNIQUE PROFILES for link to news video re: LLAMA caddies)

Fully furnished in country decor, for relaxed comfort, with locally made pottery and wildlife art. You will know you are in the mountains! On chilly nights the propane fireplace will warm you while lounging in the plush recliners. There is a his,hers and guests TV for all to be happy and content with their favorite program.

Once Moore is nestled in Sherwood Forest's 1030 acres where one can hike the more then 20 miles of trails - experience wildlife all around - enjoy the lush vegetation - and fish or canoe on five lakes. For more active exercise: two tennis courts and an outdoor pool are a short walk from the Once Moore. Even Robin Hood would be pleased with this Sherwood Forest.

A few miles down the road is Dupont Forest known for its numerous waterfalls, quiet trails, and the best mountain biking in Western North Carolina. Caesar's Head State Park - 15 minutes' drive south, is also perfect for a family outing. Standing on the top of Caesar's Head rock, one can see three states on a clear day. And one of the best kept secrets is the YMCA Camp Greenville Chapel, also known as Pretty Place because of its spectacular view. Of course, cultural options are Carl Sandburg's home, Flat Rock Playhouse, the Biltmore Estate, and the famous Brevard Music Festival

Come and experience the beauty of North Carolina's mountains and Transylvania's 250 waterfalls. You might even hear some mountain fiddles!

Oh, your family pet is welcome too however there is an additional charge for pets. Please inquire about pet fees.

Being an animal lover I presently have 5 dogs all of whom are rescues. My longest profession was a Flight Attendant with PAN AMERICAN WORLD AIRWAYS for 30 years. Having traveled the world over it is nice to have my feet planted the last 21 years

I did hold a private pilot's license for years and my husband and I enjoyed flying ourselves to golf destinations on the East Coast or to dinner. Other professions were in Reservations with 2 major airlines, a travel agent, and a ballroom dance instructress in Puerto Rico with ARTHUR MURRAY's school of dancing. Presently I'm working in a golf pro shop and enjoying my home in South Carolina and condo in North Carolina.

JO ANN MOORE purchased this condo in 2004

Why JO ANN MOORE chose Brevard

Cedar Mountain is located just 10 miles south of a charming college town and a few miles from 3 popular park and forest areas. The condo is easily accessed from a main road and yet quite private, nestled in the woods. The elevation is 3000ft with pleasant and mild temperatures in all seasons. Wildlife is abundant and flora abundant.

What makes this condo unique

The quietness of the area is very relaxing and the cool beauty of the woods and many waterfalls is refreshing. Yet hiking, biking, and horseback riding are readily available. In the summer the famous Brevard Music Festival is a wonderful treat. One can picnic on the grounds and listen to the music filling the air.( Or if you choose sit in the open air covered hall in case of rain.)

For the golf enthusiast the 18 hole executive course is just out the door. It offers llamas for caddies, quite a unique experience. 1. 5 miles away is a semi-private course. I enjoy visiting the many pottery shops nearby. FLAT ROCK offers the North Carolina State theater with wonderful productions through out the year and is only 18 miles

Lots to do for every taste...cultural or athletic. Come and enjoy !!

Close to hiking trails!

  • 4 of 5

This quaint cottage like condo is close to many state parks and national forests. We enjoyed the convenience of being close to many beautiful waterfall hikes. The condos location makes you feel as if you are in a wooded area. The screened in porch with rockers is the best part of the condo. The location is also close to Brevard with all the shopping and restaurant conveniences. Definitely a place I'd choose again.

Great Location and extras!

  • 5 of 5

We love Sherwood Forest because of the location and the Once Moore was an excellent choice. Jo Ann was nice enough to allow us to extend our stay for 1 more night (last minute). The duplex had everything we needed to accommodate our family of 4. The use of the pool and canoes on the lake was an extra bonus. We have a 12 year old and a 2 year old so the pool and lake were good ways to break up the day after sight seeing. We didnt get the chance to hike much, but the trails we did use were well maintained and easy for all of us. We will be back!

Owner's Response: .What a good feeling to know my guests enjoy their stay at the ONCE MOORE. The amenities in Sherwood Forest make it a perfect vacation spot as you needn't leave the Forest to enjoy outdoor sports and hiking. And it is all cost free with exception of golf which is a nominal price for 18 holes. However if you want a visit to town it is only 8 miles to Brevard with wonderful pottery shops enroute. A very reasonable vacation for families !!!!

Peaceful mountain retreat in woodland beauty

  • 5 of 5

JoAnn was a wonderful, thoughtful hostess. Our visit was planned at the last minute and JoAnn went out of her way to accommodate our visit. She was available by phone and email to help us.

The duplex was conveniently located in the Sherwood Forest community. The location was peaceful and quiet and provided the privacy that we were looking for. The “neighbors" that we encountered were friendly and offered help when we looked lost. We were thrilled by the access to mountain, woodland hiking trails in walking distance from our front door. We found everything in the house to be clean, well-maintained and in good working. We did miss the instructions about the hot water heater being turned off, but easily found the electrical circuit box in the kitchen and soon had hot water when we turned the circuit breaker on. Overall we found the "Once Moore" true to the listing description and pictures.

We would love to visit Sherwood Forest again and would definitely choose to stay at the "Once Moore" on future visits.

The little community of Cedar Mountain was just a few miles away. Our food at Cedar Mountain Cafe was delicious and fresh.

Brevard was an easy drive north to allow us to visit the galleries, shops and restaurants there. Don't miss stops in Brevard - Bracken Mountain Bakery, Mayberry's and Food Matters. We love that this area has so much access to fresh, local and organic food...and there is so much more to explore!

Very nice accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at JoAnn's condo and found it to be very clean and in overall excellent condition. JoAnn was wonderful to work with throughout the rental process. The only downside to the stay was the lack of cell connectivity at the condo, which the owner advised us of prior to renting, so it wasn't unexpected.

Overall very nice experience.

My husband and I have bee...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been lucky enough to stay at "Once Moore" 2 times now, and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a vacation home with "atmosphere". It is very clean and well kept and has great furnishings. Best of all is the location. Is's just a few miles from Dupont Forest and Cesars Head - both with lots of hiking trails and waterfalls. It's also very close to the town of Brevard - which has great shopping, art, restaurants and music at night. Finally, it's within a few miles access to the Parkway with tons of fun things to do.

If you want to stay "close to home", the location is perfect as well. It sits on the 17th hole of a very sweet 3-par golf course !! The development, Sherwood Forest, has tons of clearly marked walking trails and several beautiful lakes. It's also a good setting for riding bikes and caters to the wildlife and wildflowers of the local area.

We highly recommend this vacation spot to anyone who wants to get out and explore or just relax away from home. It's a good choice spot !!! Oh yea - how could I forget to add that doggies are also welcome - you can't beat that !!!
