About David DeLozier
Just a bit about me. I live full-time in Atlanta but am a Western North Carolina native. As a child growing up in the area I loved spending time outdoors and some of my fondest memories were attending Gwynn Valley summer camp in Brevard and hiking in Pisgah Forest. I’ve owned the property where you’ll be staying for about 20 years and previously shared it with my mother and her husband, and now look forward to retiring there myself---hopefully sooner than later! My son,10, loves ‘adventures’ on the property and learning to fish, and I really enjoy gardening, hiking, and anything outdoors as I’m ‘trapped’ in the office in Atlanta most of the time! I’m an amateur botanist/naturalist (most people don’t like to hike with me because I stop to ‘look’ at things all the time!) and the mountains are my escape from city life. I’m counting the days until I return to my mountain home where I'm truly happiest. I'm honored to be the custodian of this beautiful property and share it with my family and friends, and my sincere intent is to have them love and appreciate it as much as we do.
David DeLozier purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why David DeLozier chose Brevard
This property is unlike others as it's located on the footprint of a very old summer camp that has old native stone walls, beautiful old stone foundations from buildings like archeological sites, old roads weaving through the property now just trails for walks that go nowhere. Privacy and room to play is what the property offers. Firepits, picnic tables, an old stone amphitheater built into a mountain cove make things special for family gatherings. All of this 15 minutes from Brevard, 20 minutes from Pisgah Forest with 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, lots of privacy, pet-friendy, and kids love it! There is a large, acre-sized pond stocked with local rainbow trout for fishing, two small mountaintop fields, multiple streams, and hiking trails for long walks. The home is luxurious and stocked with all that you'll need for your stay: kitchen is more thank equipped with utinsels, tools, bakeware, pots & pans, and small appliances, and the bedroom linens are high-end and comfortable. The home has a great fire pit as well as a wood burning stone fireplace inside. Firewood is provided. Just down the road is the Frozen Creek entrance to Gorges State Park which is very close to the property, approximately 1 mile, and offers mountain biking and hiking trails. The Blue Ridge Parkway can be accessed approximately 12 miles away, and whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing on the French Broad River is a mere 1.5 miles away. Downtown Brevard is an easy 10 mile drive (or 15 minutes) away. When renting this 'home' you're truly getting much, much more.

We had a great time at David’s home. The home is well stocked to make the stay easy and the property is great for fishing, hiking and playing games on one of the fields above the cabin. David provides plenty of info to make the stay easy and is available anytime if needed. We’ll be back!
Better than described
If ever a property was even better than described, this is it. Very comfortable home, super well-stocked, immaculately clean. All the beds were extremely comfortable for luxurious sleep at the end of the day's adventures. Definitely recommend this one- you will feel quite welcome here.
Fantastic cabin near Brevard!
Great find! Close to Brevard for shopping, groceries and restaurants (reservations required at a few so check ahead). Perfect location for hiking lots of waterfalls! Cabin is well stocked and clean. Beds were comfortable with plenty of extra linens. Fire pits is perfectly located with plenty of wood. Dog friendly with plenty of walking trails and clear spaces to run and play. Easy access to cabin with plenty of parking. Home owner has thought of everything.
Great Cabin - Fun for everyone
Went for 4 day hiking trip - This cabin was central to some great trails as well as downtown Brevard. Also loved the trout pond - Caught one for dinner. Excellent communication by the owner and this place is well stocked with most everything you would need including some firewood. We will be back.
Really enjoyed our stay. The house was so very comfortable and very dog friendly. Beautiful property and very convenient to town. David was so great to deal!
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. Downtown Brevard is approximately 10 miles away (15 minutes or less) with diverse restaurants, in terms of cuisine and price, lots of unique shops and art galleries, antiques, and one of the top toy stores in the country. Additionally, the Brevard Music Center hosts the Brevard Music Festival each summer with the conductor of the Boston Pops, and virtually every holiday has it's own festival in downtown Brevard. Just down the road from my home and property is Headwater's Outfitters with whitewater Rafting, kayaking, canoeing, water tubing, zip lining, and river snorkeling (~2 miles away). The Blue Ridge Parkway's most scenic views, in my opinion, are located between Hwy 215 (turn left at Headwaters Outfitters and drive up the mountain about 10 miles and turn right onto the Parkway). You'll pass Devil's Courthouse and Graveyard Fields---both high elevation quick hikes with great overlooks---and amazing views, often above the clouds, of Looking Glass Rock at almost 6,000 feet, and the return exit back down the mountain to Brevard at Hwy 276 where you'll pass the Pink Beds, Cradle of Forestry, Sliding Rock, and the well known and photographed Looking Glass Falls. The county has more than 20 summer camps attracting families from all US states and internationally. Gorges and Dupont State Forest are both well-known for their waterfalls, but Dupont more so for having been the setting for several recent movies such as the first of the Hunger Games series. Craft beer breweries and tours, especially at Brevard's Oskar Blues East Coast Brewery near downtown, 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.
