Hiking

There are so many amazing hiking trails in the area. Some of our favorites:
Dupont State Forest
http://www.dupontforest.com/
If some light hiking and waterfalls are what you're looking for, then Dupont State Forest should be your destination. This is where we first took Lola for a hike after she came into our lives. Bonus: It's also where the first Hunger Games movie was filmed!

Frying Pan
http://www.romanticasheville.com/fryingpan_tower.htm
This is a nice short hike up an easy forest service road to a lookout tower. 1.5 miles roundtrip, with 360 degree views at the top.

Black Balsam
http://www.romanticasheville.com/black_balsam.htm
Some of the most popular hiking in the area. This can be a short out-and-back, or a nice loop. Choose your own adventure!

Looking Glass
http://www.romanticasheville.com/looking_glass.htm
Venture down to our little town of Brevard to check out this more strenuous hike to the top of one of the most unique and iconic geographic features of our area. A great 6.5 mile hike.

Art Loeb
http://www.romanticasheville.com/art_loeb_trail.htm
If you're going to be spending more than just the weekend in the area and are looking for a challenge, you can give the 30.1-mile Art Loeb trail a try. We've done it twice now, taking 3 days/2 nights each time to backpack it. Let us know if this is up your alley and we'll share some valuable advice about confusing intersections and water sources!
Enjoy nearby Pisgah Forest: 15 minute drive: Home of the nation’s first school of forestry where you can picnic, camp, hike, rock climb, fish, swim, slide, float, hunt, bike, mountain bike, ride your horse, rent a horse, learn about forestry, find waterfalls, sightsee, experience the NC Fish Hatchery, navigate the Blue Ridge Parkway, or just relax!

The Hub, Sycamore Cycles and Pura Vida Adventures are located right at the entrance to the forest. You are guaranteed to find whatever level of adventure you are after. Take an easy day hike or go more extreme with kayaking, rock climbing or canyoneering.

Dupont State Forest: 20 Minute Drive: Explore Triple, Bridal Veil, Hooker, High and Wintergreen Falls. Cedar Rock Mountain with its hundreds of acres of exposed granite makes it a popular destination for Bikers and Hikers! DuPont offers mountain biker ride opportunities ranging from easy forest roads to exciting single track. All trails are open to horses except for Triple Falls Trail and a few foot trails that are clearly marked. You can also take a Hunger Games Tour and feel like Katniss Everdeen for a day.

Historic Hendersonville: 30 minute drive: Visit the Carl Sandburg home, Flat Rock Playhouse State Theater and Apple Festival street fair (Aug 29- Sept 1). Great shopping along Main Street! West First Wood Fired Pizza will not disappoint you!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: My husband Gary and I met in Brevard 30 years ago. We have been renovating homes in and around Brevard for the last 23 years. This Vacation Rental: The Brown Eyed Susie is fondly named after me. We both enjoy bringing back to life homes that have been neglected and somewhat 'remuddled' This one has heart and the benefit of being walking distance to the wonderful town of Brevard.

Why Brevard, NC, USA:
We actually looked to buy this home many years ago...It needed so much work that we shied away. When it came on the market again, at a price that would allow us to do the necessary work, we jumped. We have added three closets, a half bath, laundry room, changed location of a bedroom and kitchen, rebuilt back porch, opened up walls to open space, replaced floor joists, replaced floor in kitchen and mud porch, relocated parking from back to front of house, all without adding any square footage (same footprint) ....It worked...whew!!! Time for a vacation!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking distance to town, library and parks. Comfort and character of an old home, Big front porch with swing and extra seating.
