Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here a week in November, and absolutely loved everything about this place. The cabin is very quiet and tucked away off the road, so you feel very private, yet just a few miles down the road you can sightsee and hike at Dupont Forest with all the many trails and waterfalls. Breakfast every day at the Cedar Mountain Cafe was a treat, it's very homey with amazing food. Cedar Mountain is a very charming small hideaway outside Brevard, and this cabin fits the area perfectly. You'll enjoy the comfortable couch, DVD collection, luxurious linens and the kitchen is completely stocked. I highly recommend.

We spent a week at this lovely place & wished we could have stayed longer. I was celebrating my 50th Brevard College reunion & decided to come for the entire week. The house was perfect and so cozy when we came in on those cold nights after reunion activities. We had never explored the Dupont Forest, so that was an added bonus - not to mention the fall foliage. Triple Falls and Pretty Place are a must. There were other falls, but our 70+ year-old bodies were not willing. I would like to return in the warmer months and do some serious "porch sitting" and take in the beautiful view. Thank you, Donna, for sharing your piece (peace) of heaven!

Our family thouroughly enjoyed the Treehouse @ Golden Pond! The pictures on the web page didn't do the updated rooms justice! The home had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean! Our trip was last minute & Donna & Rose were very accomodating! We especially enjoyed the fireplace, fishing pond & trails! We can't wait to come back!

Our family stayed in this...

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this lovely Treehouse, for 3 days over our childrens spring break 4/09. We loved the peacefulness of the location, the wonderful pond, ducks and fishing and feeding the fish were our treat upon coming home after a day of hiking. Donna and her husband are wonderful hosts, the while doves were the iceing on the cake, as was the nightly fires we enjoyed over the outdoor fire pit. Cedar Mountain, is not next door to downtown Brevard, so take your items including Ice to the cabin with you, but we would not have traded the drive on reasonover road if we had the chance. We will be back. NOTE" I am a tripadvisor memeber and will be posting this on tripadvisor as well, to those who are very picky, you will not be disappointed! The Wells Family
