Why Carl & Jeanne Bailey chose Penrose
In 2016 we bought this beautiful property to build our home. We love that it is quiet, without neighbors nearby, but just minutes off a main road. In 2017 we finished the lower level, which we designed as a stand alone walkout apartment for short-term vacation rentals. In 2019 we bought an additional 3 acres, including a peaceful, shady park area with a babbling brook and an area for picnicing. We are in the process of fixing up the park area and just completed a 560 sq ft cabin in the woods that will be open for rentals in early 2020.
What makes this Apartment unique
Very quiet and peaceful but close to biking, hiking and other outdoor activities, restaurants, breweries and shopping. Our walkout apartment is perfect for those on the go with easy access, and a large mudroom. We have plenty of room for parking for those who may be towing. With a fully equipped kitchen, and a comfortable living room with a 40" TV, it is also a welcome retreat at the end of a busy day.

You can tell the owners put a lot of thought in setting up this wonderful place. Has everything you need plus more. It is well-suited for dogs. The pull out sofa beds were very comfortable. It is located about two miles from DuPont Forest. I definitely would visit again.
Enjoyed our stay again!
Great property and excellent communication with owners!
We were back again for a 7 night stay. We love staying here! Upon arrival we found the apartment super clean as usual. They have everything you need including a very nice washer and dryer. They have very nice extras like tea, hot chocolate, bottled water, coffee, creamer. Since our last trip the owners upgraded the mattress and it is super comfy!! We love the location; not only is it centrally located, but it is in the woods nice and quiet. We enjoy sitting on the patio out back. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us Carl and Jeanne! See you next time!!
The Landing Pad
I am a repeat guest at The Landing Pad. The apartment is spotless and very dog friendly. It’s more spacious than appears in pictures. Bowls, treats, and dog sheets are provided. The apartment feels very secluded at the top of a mountain. The owners have a little park and wooded area great for walking the dogs. The location is perfectly situated in the center of attractions in this area. DuPont and Pisgah are both only about ten minutes away. The large mudroom and large capacity washing and dryer are great to accommodate outdoor recreation equipment. Highly recommend.
The Landing Pad
The Landing Pad is an exceptional place to stay and could not be more centrally located to fully enjoy the area. The apartment is spacious and the owners didn’t miss any details making it perfectly functional. Sparkling clean and comfortable. It was designed very well and feels very private. The porch, beautiful property, and peaceful setting can be enjoyed all times of day. The owners thought of everything to make guests comfortable. It’s a ten minute drive to both DuPont and Pisgah Forest, 15-20 minutes or less to both Brevard and Hendersonville. Ideal spot for humans and canines. Owners even had dog bowls, bags, and treats on the ready. The large load washer and dryer are great for gear at the end of a dirty day. The memory foam mattress is surprisingly comfortable. Can’t recommend this apartment or it’s location enough. Photos don’t do it justice.
