About Melinda

We love adventure and beautiful places. We have been passionate kayakers, mountain bikers, cyclists, fly fishermen and explorers of new places for most of our lives.

Melinda purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Melinda chose Smoky Mountains

We had the opportunity to purchase this lot in the Stone's Lake community in 2005, which was just too good to pass up! We jumped on the chance and built this home as an investment. This location has a wonderful long history, a beautiful chapel for our closest neighbor and many wild places to explore within just a short drive. This is a paradise location. We created this home to share with others.

What makes this cabin unique

This is such a quiet and peaceful spot. I love walking the dogs down the road to a little creek with a swimming hole just big enough for cooling them off. Being able to ride your bike from the home to go mountain biking or cycling for the day is amazing.

Very clean and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, well furnished and the kitchen was appropriately stocked. We had plenty of room and felt right at home. The stove burners were not consistent so this should be addressed but this was the only problem.

Great location and perfect vacation with Mom, Sister and the dogs. I would definitely rent again in the future.

Secluded but close to amenities. Spotless and comfortable.Everything needed was supplied.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to Summer Haven. We wanted to be close to downtown Brevard and Pretty Place. We were right in the center between both! The surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful...we enjoyed rocking on the porch and hearing the birds. We ate most meals at Cedar Mountain Cafe which lived up to its name...food was awesome and great atmosphere! We saw a white squirrel which was on my to do list! I would love to be able to spend more time at Summer Haven. We slept wonderfully as the beds were very comfy. We had absolutely no problems as the place was just as advertised. I love nice linens and they were supplied. Summer Haven was just that.......a haven!!!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Summer Haven. Home was perfect for our family (2 young kids and a dog). Great house, super quiet location. This location (Cedar Mountain) is pretty much perfect if you are looking to escape (no cell service but strong wireless) with a 15 minute drive to downtown Brevard. Great local cafe and beer garden in walking distance. Very short drive to DuPont State Forest and Whistlestop Market.

The home was clean and calm, quiet and well-appointed. The location was great for strolling and so easy to get to DuPont for hiking and biking. This was our second visit, and we will be back again!

Great experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well built, clean, quiet, comfortable house with comfortable beds and furniture. It is perfect for a family of 4. Functional interior with some rustic touches, and a great porch with rocking chairs. Very private. Woods are dense around property so there are no "mountain views," but the house is 15 minuets from visitors center parking lot for DuPont State Forest. THats where the "mountain views" are, which is probably why you would want to stay in this house. I was there in early spring, and hvac was quiet and worked good. Limited cell signal, which was perfect because I didn't want to talk to anyone anyway. Cedar Mountain and Brevard are not tourist trap areas, like gatlinburg and pigeon forge, and the area tends to be a little bit more pricey than other similar mountain destination areas.

Love this house and this area. I'll be back.

Summer Haven (and Cedar Mountain) is surrounded by state and national forests. The home is located in an historic neighborhood and feels very secluded and private. However, you're just a half mile from the main road and even a breakfast/lunch spot (easy to walk to). Check out our video for more visuals!!

There is a true abundance of world class trout streams for fly fishing, crystal clear creeks and rivers for kayaking, hundreds of waterfalls and thousands of acres of forest with hundreds or thousands of miles of trails for hiking, biking, or horse back riding within minutes of this home. This is an outdoor person's paradise!!
