About Susie Wells

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. 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.

Susie Wells purchased this bungalow in 1995

Why Susie Wells chose Brevard

This wonderful little home is a true pleasure! It is tucked back from the road, on a lovely street, off the beaten path. The floor plan is a bit unusual: Living, Bedroom and Full Bath are on entry level. Kitchen, Dining, Laundry, Full bath, Porch and Deck are Downstairs. Kitchen is totally renovated! Lots of Charm!

What makes this bungalow unique

Quiet neighborhood, lots of character and walking distance to town.

Sweet Dreamy Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Laurel Cottage! Susie Wells (the owner) added all the comforts of home and thought of everything! The cottage was impeccable and very comfortable for a romantic weekend or hiking adventure. Brevard is a quaint, charming, and welcoming mountain town with unique galleries, delicious southern food and interesting retail shops, all within a short drive to other attractive destinations, such as Hendersonville and Asheville. Laurel Cottage will definitely be on our list of future getaway destinations for years to come!

Cozy and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

This little cottage is perfect for two! We stayed over a week and found the location fantastic, walking to the downtown area numerous times. The street is quiet and we felt at home the entire stay. Susie, the Hostess, was great to work with, responding quickly and offering flexibility when needed.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I've stayed at the Cottage on Laurel. I hope to return each year. It is very convenient to walking to town, but also situated in a quiet area for privacy. The home is well kept, clean, and I love the way it is decorated.
