Upscale Mountain Vacation Home - Beautiful Wooded Setting

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This beautiful mountain home is nestled high in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by two gentle streams on 26 private, wooded acres. It is adjacent to Jones Gap and Caesar's Head State Parks, a part of the 10,000-acre protected environment for many rare and endangered plant and animal species known as the Mountain Bridge Wilderness. Hiking and mountain biking trails abound here and in the nearby DuPont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest.

The house itself has the warmth and charm of gentler times when families from Greenville came to the mountains to escape summer’s heat and humidity. It has since been thoroughly reconstructed with the installation of a gourmet kitchen, totally new infrastructure including new bathrooms, central heating and air conditioning. We call it “Pentimento” because the charm of the old subtly shines through the new.

There is a master suite with a king-sized bed and adjacent full bath on the first floor. Upstairs, a second master suite has a king-sized bed, a private full bath and walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and the other with two double beds, share a third full bath.

The house comfortably sleeps three or four couples, or two couples plus several single adults or young children. The dining area table seats a maximum of eight people.

The wrap-around porch and wood burring stone fireplace in the living room are both great places for gathering family and friends.

In addition to hiking and biking, there are several great golf courses nearby as well as fishing horseback riding, river rafting and many other outdoor adventures. The nearby City of Brevard, home of Brevard College and world famous Brevard Music Center, offers great restaurants, arts and crafts and shopping. There are many summer children’s camps nearby including YMCA Camp Greenville and its a great wedding venue, Pretty Place (Symmes Chapel).

We’re centrally located to conveniently explore the entire Upstate South Carolina/Western North Carolina area. Hendersonville, Asheville and Greenville are all within 40 to 80 minutes away.

About The Owner

My husband and I are high-tech industry retirees who are fortunate enough to be able to spend part of our year in the fantastic Upstate South Carolina/Western North Carolina mountains. We rebuilt this wonderful vacation home in 2004 and are happy to share it with others who love the area as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Cleveland

This property has been in our family since it was built in 1939 by my grandmother as a respite from Greenville's summer heat. Previously used only in the warm months, the house has been completely renovated with a gourmet kitchen and a totally new infrastructure including comfortable, year-round central heating and air conditioning.

We were able to perserve the warmth and charm of this mountain get away while still having all the comfort and conveniences of the 21st century!

What makes this house unique

We are ideally surrounded by state parks in both North and South Carolina which provide many hiking and mountain biking trails with great waterfalls and wilderness vistas. You can escape the feeling of suburbia while still having ready access to shopping and entertainment in nearby Brevard or, a little further away, Asheville NC and Greenville SC.

Or you just walk out the door and hike down the fascinating Jones Gap!

Enchanted house from a fairy tale!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this secluded cabin. Excellent amenities, lots of dishes and utensils. Easy booking, quick and easy access to lots of beautiful trails with waterfalls. The house itself looks like from a fairy tale, with a little creek and moss surrounding it. Enough parking for 3-4 (maybe even more) cars. We would love to come back.

Best Thanksgiving Holidays Ever

  • 5 of 5

My family including wife, daughter and her husband , their 18 year olds twins and my son spent the Thanksgiving holidays in this wonderful house and it was the best ever. The house is very special, with every convenience imaginable with a breathtaking view of nature including streams that run through the property, located on the highest mountain in S. C. It is so secluded but within 10 miles of the beautiful small mountain town of Brevard, N. C. which has all of the amenities that one would want. The fire place was beautiful and efficient and we kept it going all of the time as the woodpile was overflowing. For the past 14 years we have vacationed at different locations in the mountain however none compared to this. it provided a memorable Thanksgiving for us, one that we will never forget. You could not ever find a better and charming place to vacation.

Best House for the Location and Money

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 and another family of 4 just stayed over Memorial Weekend and we all loved it. You will not find a finer nicer home for your family to stay in. We all said that we could live in this house. It has everything that you could possibly need plus everything was top of the line. No expense spared in this house. The views were excellent and everything is near by. We said we would come back to this house again and again if available.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay in the mountains for the holiday. The house is down a drive in the middle of a rhododendron woods. The house was incredibly stocked, no need to pack anything but your clothes for your stay. The living room was a perfect size for family to sit and visit and enjoy the fire. Beds were very comfortable with very cozy bedding and the firewood was fully stocked for our evening fires. Nearby Brevard is a wonderful little town. I can only imagine how beautiful the property would be in the spring with the rhododendron in bloom.

The owners were very easy to contact and very helpful. I would love to go back in the warmer weather for fly fishing and hiking.

A perfect central location; beautiful, comfortable cabin that welcomes you home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

I so enjoyed the ease and convenience of this great cabin. So close to Caesar's Head, Dupont Forest, Symmes Chapel, and Pisgah --- we hiked each day and didn't have to travel that far to get to these awesome places. The cabin is just beautiful! You could feel the love and history in all the great details of the cabin and its surroundings. It was very clean, well equipped kitchen, big bedrooms and baths, and a great comfy living room with a big fireplace! Awesome porch. Owners are a pleasure to work with -you will not be disappointed in this great cabin. Look forward to a return visit!!!
