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.

Very relaxing and comfortable!
We really enjoyed this cabin. It had all the necessities in the kitchen and plenty of towels in the bathrooms. Enjoyed spending time on the three decks - one while dining and listening to the babbling brook. The owner is very talented with doing all of the bear carvings and the wood paneling throughout the cabin - it gives it a real cabin atmosphere. We'd definitely stay here again.
We were centrally located to all the places we wanted to visit and looked forward daily to returning to Babbling Brook. In fact, we always left with enough time to enjoy its accommodations in the daylight. We really enjoyed the sound of the brook early in the morning as the sun came up. The hot tub is a super nice addition. We were happy each day we were there. I'd go again for sure.
Great place to stay with great amenities
Absolutely loved staying here. Very comfortable, cozy and quiet. Felt like a home away from home with all the comforts of home already there. Décor was perfect. Great location with a great view. I anticipate staying here again in the future.
Clean, Clean, and more Clean!!!
This place was amazing. The first thing we noticed when entering the home was how clean the house was. In all the VRBO properties we have stayed this was hands down the cleanest home we have been in. The amenities provided were great, all you really have to bring is cloths, tolitries, and food, everything else is provided. My wife thought all the bear carvings were very cute. Opening the door in the master bedroom and hearing the creek was amazing. There are a few other cabins in close proximity but it still felt very private. The hot tube was a nice bonus to relax in the evenings. It was a very short drive to DuPont park where we hiked to see all the water falls and covered bridge. It was just me and my wife but this place would be great for a family of four. We will be back.
Wonderful! A perfect get-away.
Very clean, great views. Gas fireplace heats up the whole place! Dogs loved the fenced yard.
Babbling Brook Cottage was PERFECT!
We loved this cottage- wish I lived here all the time! It was beautiful, quiet , cozy and had everything you would ever need to be comfortable. The owners thought of everything! We stayed for a week with our 2 little dogs- and they loved it too! The fenced in yard was perfect for them. And after hiking 2 days and touring Biltmore for a day the Hot tub was exactly what we needed in the evening! I just hope we can come back again- the area is beautiful! We were back in the mountains- but still a short distance from everything we wanted to do! Thank you!
