About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-5)

Nestled in a mountainside filled with the native Rhododendron and Mountain Laurel of the mountain region, you will find peace and privacy in this inviting home. Located in a nice, safe neighborhood that is a hop, skip and a jump to both Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State forest, you can relax into the comforts of home after those long days trekking through the woods. You can drive (or for the more adventurous, bike) to your fun in no time. Be awed by the Land of the Waterfalls or take a leisurely drive on the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. All you need is something to warm your stomachs as you take in the fresh mountain air sitting on the huge screened in porch, or by the fire. Enjoy the mountains and everything they offer without feeling like you have to rough it to say you have been there and done that. Come and enjoy the feeling of being home in your home away from home.

About Haley

I am a mountain girl, whose heart will forever be in the mountains.

Haley purchased this house in 1975

Why Haley chose Pisgah Forest

This is the house my mom built.... with a little help from the builders of course! I grew up here, spending most of my time in my backyard forest; digging, imagining, inventing, and dreaming. The house was just a child's formality because truthfully I would have preferred to stay outside forever. Being a grown up now, with my mom now gone, I steal away with my son and my dog as often as I can take a break from teaching, to my fond memories. However, since I know life feels better when we share what we love, I hope you will enjoy our home too... making memories of your own.

What makes this house unique

Sitting inside or out, I often feel like I am in a tree house.... and I like it:) The house is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and noises, yet is safely tucked into a private community of other homes. I think it is the best of both worlds for those who love trekking through the woods and rivers by day as well as those who just want to enjoy the quaint little town of Brevard.. with food, festivities and fun. Either way, you don't have to go but a few miles to get to the adventures you came for. Easy access and low key living equals stress relief for anyone.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our two months on Knob Creek was our home away from home. The house had everything you needed to make it your home. I slept very well. I felt very safe. The home is located near two forest, lots of hiking, waterfalls and downtown Brevard. I would return and recommend to anyone wanting to visit Transylvania county. We had several friends visit us while there. Everyone was impressed with the home and location. Haley was a great host and very responsive. I appreciate her opening her home to us.

Quiet and relaxing. Close to town

  • 4 of 5

House is a little dated but the woods setting was very relaxing. Would have used the awesome porch more of it wasn't so cold. Wasn't expecting to have to drop off our own trash at the dump collection but it was ok. Only cost $0.75 for our trash and the recycle was free. Very close to quaint brevard downtown area and Oskar blues brewery (among others). We're more into cider but there's a place only 20 minutes away for that also! We would stay again if we weren't already buying property nearby.

Nice home but needs some upgrades

  • 3 of 5

Home was clean and location was convenient. Home had a musty smell and carpet in master bedroom in need of replacement as it has lots of stains and smelled. Glad we got in earlier than we expected as we had to make up the beds (sheets and such) ourselves when we got there. It was clean and served our needs for the weekend.
