Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This charming cabin, 'Deer Run,' is situated on a beautiful, private setting, surrounded by Hemlocks, Mountain Laurel, Rhododendron, and Holly Trees at 3,000 feet on the top of Black Knob Mountain. Located in Pisgah Forest Estates, the cabin is in a private neighborhood, secluded from the main house where the owners live.

It has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a spacious loft with twin beds, two full baths, a great room with a cathedral ceiling and stone fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, sunroom, covered back porch, and a stack washer and dryer. The cabin has a TV with a built in DVD player, and WiFi.

You will love this location. It is so close to spectacular waterfalls and hiking trails. Written in Bike Magazine, Brevard is home to some of the best bike riding in the country. Also close is Brevard Music Center, renowned nationwide for its summer musical presentations. The Flat Rock Theatre only 16 miles from our cabin provides an incredible array of plays, musicals, and concerts. If you just want to stay on top of the mountain, there are miles of scenic trails you can explore.

About Sandra Whitaker

Thirteen years ago we bought 13 acres of land to build a cabin to vacation in with plans to later build a small retirement home and use the cabin as quest quarters. When we ended up building a larger house than planned, we decided to rent out the cabin.

Don is a retired Cardiologist, and Sandra is a retired teacher. We have hiked this area for over 30 years and knew that we would want to spend the rest of our lives here.

While we genuinely love hiking, Don is passionate about taking pictures of wild flower and nature, and Sandra is very active at Brevard Health & Racquet Club.

It’s great being able to walk out our door with our dogs to so many beautiful trails. There is so much wild life to discover.

Sandra Whitaker purchased this cabin in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cabin with us. We appreciate how all the rooms are immaculate and beautifully appointed. I love the super soft blankets on the beds! We enjoyed the scenery, the musical DVDs, and the kitchen stocked with everything we needed for all our meals. It's hard to leave such a wonderful place.

Perfect little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cabin for a few days while vacationing in Brevard. The cabin was less than a 10 minute drive from some of the most beautiful waterfalls we had ever seen. It's super secluded! One night it rained for a bit, and the sound it made on the tin roof was like a symphony. The cabin was very clean and comfortable, and the owners of the cabin were very hospitable. We felt right at home.

Even though we're nature freaks and spent most of our time hiking, it was nice to have the town of Brevard within a short driving distance from the cabin. We went out one night for dinner, and the town itself was very charming, with a nice selection of locally owned restaurants. We even saw a white squirrel!

We will absolutely stay at this cabin again the next time we plan a hiking trip!

Thank you so much!

What a beautiful cabin in the woods! Secluded, yet so close to all the attractions of western NC.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful! It has everything you need--just show up with your suitcase! Dupont and Pisgah are so close. So are the quaint towns of Brevard, Hendersonville, and Flatrock. The cabin offers tranquility and the perfect setting to unwind and recharge.

We loved the cabin. Wish it was closer to town but overall a great place. The weather was beautiful.

Great place to get away from it all. Very quiet. Sandra was a wonderful host. Loved taking a walk with she & our dogs. The smells of the cut grass were lovely when going into town.

Had a wonderful time.

If you want to get away to the woods, this cabin is for you. A lovely setting at the top of a mountain, Deer Run is comfortable, fully outfitted, and attractively appointed. And you can bring your dog.

Absolutely beautiful!

this cabin was really a gorgeous house with just about everything you could think of that you would need. It was so quiet you could here a pin drop! The owner was very accommodating and pleasant. If you are looking for a secluded and peaceful getaway with all the amenities, including the internet, this is the place for you.

Perfect Dog Friendly Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Hubby & I, plus our 2 dogs, really enjoyed our recent stay in Pisgah Forest. With 13 acres available, we all enjoyed our walks every day. Husband played golf at Connestee Falls Golf Course (south of us) and Cummings Cove Golf Course (north of us), both within 20 minutes or so of the cabin. Getting to Ingles was an easy drive, as well as driving to Flat Rock for a play one rainy day. We had everything we needed in the cabin (except for groceries, of course). Enjoyed sitting on the back porch in the evening after dinner and spent many hours in the sunroom enjoying the rockers and lots of light for reading. I read 3 books while there!

We are looking forward to our return visit for 2 more weeks of fun and relaxation in August..plus escaping the heat/humidity of Florida. Thanks Sandra for sharing your cabin.
