About sharon bode

I spent many summers at camp in western NC as a child. We have vacationed in this area nearly every year for the last 20 years. We love the outdoors, excellent hiking, kayaking and other activities that are so available here.

sharon bode purchased this cabin in 2010

Why sharon bode chose Smoky Mountains

We love the proximity to Dupont State Forest and Caesers'Head and the great hiking opportunities in both spots. The complete privacy of our location, opportunity to view wildlife in the front yard and the incredible choices of activities nearby made this a 'must have' for us!

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is fully equipped so no worries about being able to prepare great meals away from home. The stream, waterfall and wading pool provide on-sight entertainment. Feed the deer and enjoy a touch of nature right in the front yard. The fenced yard keeps the kids and pets safe and secure. Listen to the sound of the waterfall as you fall asleep. Wifi, satellite and DVD keep us in touch with our other lives if we choose.

Fenced yard for dogs was great!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house for us and our two dogs! Loved the back sun room for dining! Good location almost next to DuPont Forest. Just be aware that it 10 miles of curvy mountain roads to Brevard for any real grocery store and nice restaurants.

Owners suggestions for places to hike and visit were very much appreciated since it was our first visit to the Area.

Fantastic Retreat into Nature...Above and Beyond Owners

  • 5 of 5

Our trip started off with a bang, literally, my truck engine blew up 5 miles from arriving. After a tow truck drop off, David was so kind to lend me his truck so our family could get groceries, etc. He then continued to go above and beyond by driving me to get a rental car the following day. Can't say enough of how thankful we were. The house itself was great, our kids (6,5,1) loved playing in the fenced yard and down at the waterfall just a few steps down into the back woods. Great proximity to Dupont (we hiked Triple Falls/High Falls/Hooker Falls 3 times, nice easy flat trails ~1 mile to each) Only about 25minutes to Pisgah waterfalls/Brevard downtown. New place "Canteen" about a mile down the road for local beers and ice cream for the kids great after a day of hiking.

Each morning and evening we had 3-6 deer friends visit and even had a large black bear swing through the front yard 1 evening to sample the deer corn.

The cabin itself is spacious and great for a family retreat.

Already planning our return, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

A Great Week at Amos Acres

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Amos Acres. The property was exactly as advertised. The cabin was absolutely lovely, and the setting was superb. We enjoyed sitting out back and just listening to the stream in the background. It was a treat in the early evening to watch the deer come out to eat corn near the front gate. We have already interested one of our cousins in the property and hope to hear that they stay there too.

Perfect tranquil home for dogs and their humans

  • 5 of 5

So pleased that we found this home that we have already booked our next trip! Amos Acres provides the restful location two busy humans need as well as a securely fenced yard for dogs to be let out safely off leash to enjoy their surroundings. It is a short drive into Brevard and the local area has everything you need. We hope to come here multiple times per year to enjoy the forest during each season.
