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.

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.

Second Stay as Pefect as the First!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our dog Bella have fallen in love with Deer Run, it's beautiful surroundings, including it's closeness to a Nature P.reserve and the many trails within the Forest! This was our second stay this year and we are prepared to return next spring. The Cabin itself is beautiful. It's comfortably furnished and the kitchen is very well equipped. Sandra, our landlord, has thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable both in the cabin and in her suggestions for hikes near the cabin, in DuPont State Forest, in Pisgue National Forest, along the Blue Ridge Parkway and other locations. We enjoyed our days of hiking and exploring and coming home to peaceful Deer Run. It was nice to sit on either the front deck or back porch for a relaxing glass of wine before we cooked simple meals at home. Although Brevard has many choices for good dining and many interesting shops and Galleries, we didn't take advantage of that , preferring the lovely forest and the peace of Deer Run! For us it is a magical place.

This cozy mountain top cabin is beautiful and quiet and perfectly placed on the property.

  • 5 of 5

My top three must haves all came through 100%. The kitchen was well equipped, the beds were very comfortable and the showers were wonderful too. Of course we wanted this vacation to be quiet and beautiful and it definitely was. It was an easy ride down the mountain to go into town for groceries and shopping in general. Asheville is not far and worth driving to for a day out.This cabin is also close to many beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails. The only thing I could say that we wished we had is 1 additional tv possibly in the Master bedroom...however, we did have internet and there was no problem with that. The owners live close by and are very helpful if you have any questions. All in all this is wonderful place to stay and we would recommend this cabin to anyone!

Cozy place

Very cozy and well stocked. Comfortable beds. Walking trails easily accessed off the property. If it had a mountain view would give 5 stars

Owner's Response: We're glad that you enjoyed your stay, and we were very happy to have you. Although the cabin does not have a mountain view, it does have a beautiful setting, surrounded by Hemlocks, Holly's, and Rhododendrons. I'm sorry if you were expecting a view, however I do not advertise that.
