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 Cedar Mountain

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 built 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.

We have stayed at Summer Haven many times now and we consider this our Fall escape to the mountains! We enjoy the mountain bike trails of Dupont and Pisgah so this location is IDEAL! Melinda is an awesome host and she always takes care of us if we have anything come up with the cabin. We will return again next year!

We enjoyed our stay at Summer Haven. The home was very clean had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxing time, I highly recommend summer haven. It's very close to DuPont State Park and walking distance to a bier garden and a great breakfast - lunch place. The food at cedar mountain cafe was so good we decided to visit 3 mornings to have breakfast.

It is a short drive to Brevard, where we Enjoyed shopping and dining.

Fabulous setting

  • 5 of 5

Summer Haven is the perfect cabin. It is secluded, but not isolated. It is a short and easy drive into Brevard. It is adjacent to the Dupont State Forest with all its recreation. The kitchen is well equipped. The living area is comfortable. The beds are cozy. Porch is everything a porch should be :)

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!!
