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.

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.

About David Sams

We are David and Darla Sams. Originally from Texas, we came to Brevard on vacation and fell in love with the mountains.

David Sams purchased this cottage in 2005

Why David Sams chose Smoky Mountains

We moved to this area in 2000 and just love it!

We are glad we can share it with others.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is situated on a quiet street on an acre of woodland. There is a beautiful stream flowing behind the cottage and you can see a waterfall from the deck off the secluded Master bedroom deck.

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.

Bear Heaven on Babbling Brook Lane

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this cabin. Especially, our two small dogs who had a nice fenced in area to run around and play. It had everything we needed and I am sure in warmer weather we would have loved the many deck areas. We hiked all day and got home late each afternoon, so being Floridians, it was too cold for us to hang outside. The very large living room and good size bedrooms were a plus. If there is any negative it would be counter space in the kitchen, but we were able to make it work. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer on site. This cabin has a great location - between Brevard and Hendersonville and gave us a good starting and ending place each day.

Cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our weekend stay at your cabin. We especially enjoyed being able to bring our sweet dog with us too. The cabin is in a great location for quick drives to popular hiking spots. Also about 20 min to the Sierra Nevada Brewery. The porches were our favorite thing about the cabin!

Goldilocks would love it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly lovely setting & it was a joy to breakfast on one of the three porches each morning (I prefer the one with rocking chairs), admiring the trees & listening to the brook down in the ravine--which is actually loud enough I could hear it over my tinnitus going to sleep.* Another nice thing is that a dog can be confined on the front porch as well as in the yard, and ours really enjoyed spending time there. The cottage is convenient to Brevard (good restaurants, great gallery shops) and the Pisgah National Forest (with waterfalls!), and the ride into town is lovely too. We expected to be isolated in the wilderness, so to speak, but other cottages are scattered up and down the wooded hill (not too close). The amenities are fine--the shower is great & safe though it's awkward to have a bathroom opening onto the living room--and the hot water and towels plentiful. Kitchen is tight but functions well; plenty of dishes & cookware. Bears are everywhere--carved, photographed, everything but live. *The one problem for me--my daughter and son-in-law had the master bedroom--was the single bed with the delightful bear posts; it's picturesque but the mattress isn't good enough for an elderly person with a bad back. If we were to return--and we'll certainly be tempted!--I'd either have to get a "Travel Ewe" pad or be assured you'd acquired a pillow top if not a whole new mattress. I think it's all right for the young. A little table on the door side of the bed and a rocking chair or small armchair would also be useful additions to that room. All in all, though, I certainly give it a five-star recommendation.

Cozy Mountain Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend and really enjoyed the cottage. We spent evenings on the front porch, and our children had fun playing in the creek. The property is tucked away nicely off the beaten path and just a short drive to Brevard. We hope to return next year.
