About Babbling Brook cottage:

The cascading stream and waterfall view make this cottage the perfect retreat.

The cottage overlooks a beautiful stream cascading down the mountain. The water cascades down the waterfall,then down the brook over moss covered rocks, creating wonderful sounds of rushing water as it flows behind the cottage. A gas log stove will keep you warm on a brisk fall evening or winter day. Cable TV, a Video Library, and Wii game system will make your stay enjoyable.

Don't let the lower rates fool you. We have very NICE accommodations, refreshingly cleanly kept and most of our guests turn into repeat guests! Many have been coming for many years/several times a year!

The master bedroom has a glass door that opens onto the covered

porch perched above the brook. You can see the waterfall from this covered porch/open deck combo and it's perfect for watching the squirrels play or birds sing.

*The living room has a warm cozy feel that makes you feel that you are at your own personal home away from home. Babbling Brook cottage is filled with handcrafted furnishings that will make your stay enchanting.

2 Comfy bedrooms - 2 full baths - full kitchen & laundry area - sleeps 4.

The Living room closes off and has a queen sofa sleeper and full bath plus an enchanting gas fire will warm you on the cool nights.

This cottage has three covered porches/decks where you can entertain, cook out on the grill, or just sit back and enjoy the day.

YOU JUST WON'T BE ABLE TO FIND A BETTER LOCATION TO STAY-- FOR WATERFALLS, SIGHT-SEEING, HIKING, ETC! We are in the scenic valley just east of town. No crowds! Drive past the pastures that flank the river into a wonderful area of peace and contentment.

Loved the fishing

  • 5 of 5

I, being the only girl with two men, was more than happy to find out the guys had reserved a cabin with rooms and bathrooms!

It's very cute! They did a good job!

We arrived late Friday to wake early Saturday and go fly fishing all day on the East Fork and Davidson rivers. We had good luck.

It's Sunday, and we are about to go again.

Thanks for letting us stay!

Oh, and thanks for all the great movies to choose from.

Perfect for kids, elderly, and pets.

  • 5 of 5

I loved having coffee on the back porch while listening to the sound of rushing water from the creek. That creek was an everyday adventure for my 5 year old son. We had 5 in our party and picked this cottage because it seemed the perfect fit for all of our needs: not too many steps, near attractions, and fenced. The house was easily accessed by my 85 year old grandmother.

The cottage was in a perfect location and though you can see other homes from the front, we had privacy from the side and back porches. The cottage is nicely updated and met our expectations. Our black lab loved the fenced in yard-- it was such a relief to know she could get some safe outdoor time, too! I would ask the owners to check the cooking utensil inventory for the cottage There were plenty of knives, 2 spatulas and a metal spoon, but I hated using metal on your non stick pots. Plenty of silverware, dinnerware, and glassware. Thank you!

Overall, we couldn't have been more pleased and would love to return!

Cute and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The cabin is not far from Hendersonville and Brevard. There are a couple cabins nearby, but it's nestled in the trees so you still have privacy.

The babbling brook outside the master bedroom is the best part of this property. We opened the door (but closed the screen and blinds) at night so we could fall asleep to sounds you'd find in a ambient sound app.

Road is paved all the way to the driveway which makes it easier to get to. Living room is spacious, two 3/4 bathrooms are nice as well. Full stove, range and refrigerator make it easy to cook your own meals. Second bedroom has two twin beds and would be great for kids.

We're so glad we stayed here. This will be the first cabin we'll look for the next time we come back to the area.

Lovely escape

Adorable cabin. Great outdoor space with 3 covered porches and a fenced yard. Pet friendly so the fenced yard was fabulous for our dog.
