About the neighborhood:
It is most important to us that people know what they are getting before they arrive so their expectations are met or (we hope) exceeded. We've been renting our house since right after our daughter was born in 2009. The neighborhood is safe and many of our guests enjoy walking. They often remark on the friendliness of the neighbors and the community spirit. Directly next door on one side of our house is a retiree, on the other is a peaceful, private, family garden. Overall the neighborhood is quiet, but there are sometimes children playing in the streets and the occasional family gathering.

Unlike gated communities (like at Cashiers, Connestee, etc.), Brevard is a mixed income, working-class mountain town. Our neighborhood is diverse and has individually owned, single family homes. The neighbors all work in Brevard or adjacent towns – or are retirees. One of the houses down the street has a bit of “mountain character”, but in general it's a well kept neighborhood where people take pride in their homes.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: This was not purchased as a vacation home, but when we met and married, we each came with a house. We love Brevard and hated to give up our connection to the area, so rented in in the hopes to one day live here year round. We named our house 'Adele's Retreat' after the our daughter Adele. This is her enjoying some 'wa-wa' time underneath Bridal Veil Falls in Dupont. A true child of the mountains, she's enjoyed many hours hiking, biking, playing in Pisgah, Dupont and with the neighborhood kids.

Why the Owner Chose Brevard, NC, USA:
We love Brevard. It is beautiful. The air is clean and the pace is slow. When you visit here, you take a piece of it home in your heart. We hope you'll enjoy our home during your stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Something to think about: If you have an interest in owning a home in Brevard, this one may become available in 2017. Please contact us for more information.
