Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Queen-size Convertible Sofa bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This luxurious mountain cabin is nestled in a hardwood cove surrounded by a babbling brook, blooming rhododendron, and landscaped with native plants. The cabin is tastefully furnished with mission-style antiques, has a wood-burning, field stone fireplace, and all of the amenities of a home away from home. A wrap around porch with outdoor living room surrounds the cabin---perfect for outdoor relaxation by candlelight while listening to the beautiful sounds of nature and a babbling brook. A large grill and stereo speakers make the porch perfect for outdoor lounging and entertaining, and a native stone circle fire pit is located in the garden area just below the front of the home. Inside is a large great room with a cathedral ceiling with hardwood paneling, dining table for 6, fully equipped modern kitchen, 2 sofa beds, WiFi internet and satellite HDTV with premium movies and sports channels, and BluRay/DVD player.

Originally a summer camp over fifty years ago, the property on which the home sits now is a private, family estate comprised of 66 mountainous acres with two ponds that are fed by 3 streams that originate on the property. There are two small fields at the top of the mountain that are perfect for playing games with the family and throwing balls to the dogs. Gravel roads and trails weave throughout the property for leisurely strolls, short hikes, and outright bush-whacking for the brave hearted! A great place to roam through the woods, play in the streams, and have some fun adventures with kids! Structural relics of the old summer camp still exist----old stone foundations from the cabins, a stone amphitheater in a mountain cove, outdoor fireplaces, etc. make for interesting exploration as you walk the property. The largest pond is over an acre and is stocked with Rainbow Trout. An outbuilding that serves as a workshop/garage with a large front porch deck overlooks the pond with a grill and patio furniture making the perfect space for relaxing while fishing for your evening meal. This is more than a rental home --- it's an adventure!

The Master BR has a King-size bed and a bathroom with a full bathtub/shower (the home's other bathroom has a spacious shower with a Waterpik high-pressure showerhead with an extra long hose if your dog happens to need a shower too!). One of the two additional BRs has a Queen-sized bed, and the other is a King. The LR has two, new Queen-size sleeper sofa beds.

Note: If this home is booked, there is one other home on this same property that isn't within seeing or hearing range (a small mountain separates them). Both homes have similar amenities, but it is a 2BR/2BA. You can check its availability by searching for property number 565064.

Why David DeLozier chose Smoky Mountains

I bought this property due to my love for Brevard. While I grew up in Western NC, the hiking, waterfalls, and unique mix of cultural offerings, such as the summer Brevard Music Festival and great restaurants, shopping, art and music in this small, mountain town is truly unique. My dream was to share the property with my family and friends, and guests, in hopes that they love and appreciate it as much as I do. The property is large and very private with only two homes. It offers plenty of room to explore and a perfect place for kids and dogs to play outdoors. It's close to town, less than an hour away from Asheville yet just down the road from Gorges State Park, rafting and canoeing, fly fishing and a stocked trout pond right on the property.

What makes this cabin unique

The property has plenty of room to play with an acre trout pond, ball field, multiple streams, and hiking trails for long walks. Just down the road is the Frozen Creek entrance to Gorges State Park which is very close to the property. The Blue Ridge Parkway can be accessed approximately 10 miles away, and whitewater rafting and canoeing on the French Broad River is a mere 1.5 miles away.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nestled in the forest, yet close to town that has all you need, is this beautiful and spacious cabin. It is furnished cottage-style and it very comfortable, not to mention fast internet accesss. It had all needs including soaps, shampoos, towels, very convenient. The owner was very helpful and responsive to our calls and needs. We will stay here again soon.

Tranquil, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We came to this place as a stop over between Wisconsin and Florida. I was driving alone with my three children and my dog! I needed a place where they could all run around in between the drive and the property is absolutely stunning. There are little rivers that run into the pond. The house was clean, renovated beautifully and comfortable. David was a wealth of information about the area and we had a really great time. I would love to come back here and would even consider purchasing a home in this area!

Wonderful retreat and beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

The owner has thought of everything to make his guests feel like they are in a home away from home. The beds are super comfortable, linens equally as nice, bath towels were thick, the kitchen was well stocked and the rooms tastefully and beautifully decorated. Each night we hoped it would rain so we could fall asleep to the sound of the rain on the tin roof! The house is located at the top of the road which allows total privacy from the pond and other cabin. A covered porch runs the length of the house and we spent hours there relaxing to the music through the porch speakers, playing checkers or napping. The grounds are beautifully maintained and we enjoyed walking the trails, fishing the pond, identifying native plants and listening to the sounds of the tree hoppers! The quaint town of Brevard is close enough to explore yet far enough to enjoy a peaceful getaway. David, the owner, is wonderful to work with and is readily available to answer any questions and send information concerning the rental and things to do in the area. There were four adults, one child and our small dogs in our group. The layout of the cabin was perfect and wish we could have stayed longer than our three nights!

Gorges State Park Frozen Creek entrance is just down the road within biking distance where trails can be used for mountain biking and long hikes to some of the better waterfalls in the county, the Brevard Music Center host the Brevard Music Festival each summer with the conductor of the Boston Pops, Whitewater Rafting, kayaking, canoeing, water tubing, zip lining, and river snorkeling are about 2 miles away, and the Blue Ridge Parkway's most scenic views (in my opinion, at least) are located between the onramp of hwy 276 from the Pisgah Forest entrance to the exit ramp onto hwy 215 down the mountain to the cabin and property, the county has numerous Summer Camps, Dupont State Forest is well-known for it's waterfalls as well as having been the setting for several movies such as the first of the Hunger Games series, Craft Beer Breweries and Brewery Tours at Oskar Blues East Coast Brewery in Brevard, Brevard Brewing Company, Pisgah, and Sierra Nevada's brewery in Mills River about a 35 minute drive away. Transylvania County is the East Coast mountain biking capitol with some of the best trails in the country. Similarly Pisgah National Forest and the Shining Rock Wilderness area contain some of the best hiking east of the Mississippi.
