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.

Beautiful mountain home.

Summer Haven was a great home away from home. It had more then you would except it too. Well equipped kitchen and wash room. The porch was our favorite place.The weather was wonderful. Hikes in the DuPont State Park were breathtaking. Love, love, love the place. Thanks for a great stay.

Great little house and very private!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time! The house was great for the 2 (seniors) of us and our sweet dog! It was also located just a short walk from beautiful Faith Chapel, which we attended both Sundays we were there. Our bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen well furnished with cooking necessities. It would have been nice to have had an overhead fan in the livingroom and also out on the porch, but still comfortable early in the morning and late afternoon. It was still a bit warm, even in the mountains, in mid August! I would have given 5 stars if there had been a view, but knew that before renting.

Great house, beautiful property, peaceful & secluded

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great weekend at Summerhaven, our second time staying in this house. The house is clean and well equipped, the property is nicely tucked into the woods so you feel remote even though it's so close to Dupont and only 20 mins to Brevard. Coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings on the deck. We enjoyed many of the fantastic outdoor adventures that Brevard has to offer.

Comfortable, clean, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a great location. As a solo traveler, I didn't use everything in the house, but I can tell you the king bed in the master is very comfortable with nice linens. Plus, the house was very clean upon arrival. It feels very secluded yet is convenient to Dupont Forest and Brevard. Melinda was very helpful and easy to reach if needed. Just be aware there is no cell service (which is not unusual in the mountains), but the WIFI worked well. Would definitely recommend and come back.

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.

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!!
