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

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.

Great place to stay with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Babbling Brook Cottage was PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

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!

The cabin was great! I loved the babbling brook that runs behind the cabin. We felt very much at home there. Would definitely recommend this place.
