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

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.

Tranquil vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home is one everyone should visit. I was so impressed with everything in the kitchen. Every room in the house was very comfortable. I brought my two very small dogs with me to the cottage, it was amazing how they learned to go up and down the stairs so easily, so much fun. The grounds outside were clean and neat and I had no fear of walking my dogs outside. The master bedroom is huge and very comfortable. The two guestrooms were small and quaint but very comfortable. If you're going up to the mountains to watch TV, forget it. With all the storms in the summer The DirecTV does not work too well. Of course no one goes to the mountains to watch TV. This location was awesome to go to all the waterfalls and all the walking trails. I highly recommend Summer Haven for a beautiful vacation spot.

Another great stay at Summerhaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Summerhaven and it won't be the last! It rained every evening (which we had hoped for), making for a nice cool evening sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch. The cabin has everything you need for your stay and a nice addition was a grill, which we used to cook some local grass fed beef! Location is fantastic and beautiful!

This is our second time at Summer Haven and like the first time, it was just perfect. See my review from last summer for more details. Hope we will be back again.

Great property & location

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal location and a very nice home to hike, bike, play and enjoy the area nearby. The owner fully equips the house with everything needed to enjoy your stay. Brevard is just a short drive if you prefer dinning out or enjoying one of the many micro brewery - otherwise the home's kitchen is fully stocked to prepare meals @ home.

This was a great get away. Very clean and private. Close to everything needed.

  • 5 of 5

Easy access to camp. Wish we could stay longer and will plan to return. Only complaint was decoration - did not like the throw rugs. and several doors could swing different for easier access to room (down stairs bath and master bedroom. ). That's my own obsession. Was a great VRBO. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place v

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to head to the Mtns and enjoy the peace and quiet, Summer Haven is the spot. My wife and I spent 3 days riding at DuPont and the location couldn't have been better.

The house has everything you need to enjoy your stay and the bed is comfy. Originally we planned on bringing our dog, but we added another and he wasn't quite ready to travel. That being said, the owners are dog people! There are books for trails with dogs, info on local vets, etc.

We had a great time and will 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!!
