About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This rustic and sophisticated cabin is nestled on a mountainside near the French Broad River. It is located on nine private acres secluded from the Partridge Hill main house where the owners live. Partridge Hill was once owned by the author Hamilton Basso who was a close friend of Thomas Wolfe. Wolfe and Basso spent many hours on Partridge Hill and would love the inviting ambience of the cabin known as The Partridge Nest. The cabin features two queen-sized bedrooms and two full baths with an additional sleeping area in the cozy writers loft. Amenities include a beautiful and well-stocked kitchen, dining area, wood-burning fireplace, and a full screened porch with a mountain view. The interior design is comfortable, inviting, and mountain inspired.

An ideal get-away spot, the cabin is secluded yet only four miles from Brevard where there are fine restaurants, the Brevard Music Center, Brevard College, and many great shops. The Pisgah National

Forest is just minutes away from your front door and offers some of the finest hiking, rock climbing, and fly fishing in the East. Majestic waterfalls are all around the area as well. The Brevard Music Center is renowned nationwide for it's summer musical presentations and it's students typically go on to major careers in music. Keith Lockhart is the artistic director and principal conductor.

You will forget time as you sit on the old-fashioned porch swing enjoying the mountain view or reading a book in the cozy loft. You will return to the real world rested, renewed and looking forward to your next visit to The Partridge Nest.

The Partridge Nest was featured in the February 2018 issue of OUR STATE magazine in North Carolina. There are several pictures and a very informative story.

Cozy and Charming

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at this cozy, charming, and comfortable cabin. The details inside and out are amazing! We spent a lot of time on the screened porch playing checkers and rocking in the swing. Perfect location to Pisgah Forest where we did a fabulous day hike and downtown Brevard where we enjoyed a nice dinner out. Charlie the owner was a pleasure to work with. Hope to book again in the future!

Better than the finest hotel

  • 5 of 5

I drove up the night before picking my children up at camp and what a treat! This lovely cabin was the perfect place to stay. It looks charming and old but is acutually newer construction that is so well designed you think it has been part of a one family estate. Impeccably furnished, the beds are comfortable and the sheets are soft. The dining table is the perfect spot for a family meal and the back porch has an unbelieveable view of the sunset. I sat an watched from beginning to end! Such a peaceful, private perfect place to stay in the mountains. I will be back again soon with my whole family! It would be a great spot for fall leaf changing season!

My wife and I, and our son and daughter in law wanted a short getaway in the Brevard area. This cabin was a great find! The hosts are prompt and very welcoming! The cabin is immaculate and VERY well decorated, making you feel right at home. It had everything we needed for making ourselves comfortable and only a short ride from Brevard. All of the descriptions are accurate. We loved our comfortable, relaxing weekend and have already recommended the cabin to friends and family. We would definitely book it again and look forward to it!

Look no more!! You have just found the perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is 2nd time I've stayed in this amazing cabin. The first was with my husband and another couple during Christmas holidays in 2013. The second time was just last week. I stayed with 3 wonderful teacher friends that I've known for over 25 years. Both experiences at The Partridge Nest were excellent! Charlie and Jean pay close attention to the details so that you will enjoy your stay without worries. If you're like us, the only questions you will have are about the wonderful decor that the cabin offers. There's so much of Charlie and Jean's personality tucked inside that cabin that you will think of them as a good friend before your stay is over:) We loved the porch and spent every morning and evening there with our coffee. The ambiance of the cabin-inside and out-makes you feel so relaxed that your time will pass quickly and you'll be longing for just one more day!! I would recommend this cabin during any season as it is close to shopping, hiking, waterfalls, restaurants and more! The location is so easy to find yet tucked away so that it isn't even noticed from the road!! A stay at The Partridge Nest will only make you long to come back again very soon!!
