In the Fall of 2001, Nan packed up her two dogs Osmond and Zoe and headed to the mountain town of Brevard, North Carolina to seek sanctuary. Upon arrival she was amazed by the natural beauty of the area and it’s calming influences. Enchanted by the Land of Waterfalls the Pisgah National Forest and the friendliness of the local people she decided to make Brevard her home the following summer.
Searching the area for the perfect property, located not too far from town but in the midst of the forest, she discovered Cantrell Mountain located near the DuPont State Forest. Wanting to share the natural beauty and love of dogs with others she bought the land on which she designed and built the cabins for DogWoods Retreat. Using responsible stewardship of the land and maintaining its natural beauty she has created the perfect private luxury dog & owner vacation.
Please join us to peace out, venture out and find serenity in these wonderful mountains of North Carolina!

History of DogWoods Retreat.
Our search started by looking for that perfect piece of land on which to build DogWoods Retreat. We had quite a check list, not so easy to fulfill, in this land of Waterfalls. We wanted to be on a mountain (3000 feet altitude) and in the forest to enjoy warmer winter and cooler summer temperatures. A gentle south facing terrain to keep our porches on the sunny side in winter and shady in the summer and the ability to have our spacious fenced yards. Being close to town with easy major highway (276) access. After lots of looking we finally found that perfect spot!
Now the plans…. Chalets with lots of decking and two level covered porches added 700 sq feet to enjoy the wonderful outdoors! 1400 square foot interiors with an upstairs large master bedroom and bath with granite counter tops and loft area. Main floor guest bedroom, bathroom, living room with wood-burning fireplace, dining room, kitchen with granite counter tops.
Nan & Will Long purchased this house in 2013

What a really great place to stay. Awesome cabin and nice to know a place where dogs are truly welcome. This was our first time to the area. But are already planning another trip! DogWoods Retreat what an awesome place you have here!
We wanted a nice retreat in Brevard with a hottub. We found this one and it was a bonus that it was dog-friendly. So we took our dog. We found the place to be very clean, well-appointed, plenty of comfy dog beds, great hot tub, comfortable bed and sitting area. Great decks for lounging. Very convenient to everything, but very private. This was exactly what we needed and we would recommend Tree Frog!
It was an easy process to book our reservation as the website was self explanatory. Upon check in the place was clean, wood left for fireplace, terry and linens provided and amenities provided for our two dogs. The owners were pleasant to work with, tho nothing specifically was needed from them in that the home was well stocked. I would recommend this property to anyone who likes taking their""best friends" with them on vacation....the fenced in yard was a major convenience as were the exterior decking on the home.
We don't have a dog—we met up with a friend who does have one—but I would stay here again, dog or not. Aside from the amenities for pups, there is no sign that these places are regularly inhabited by dogs of any number and size. It was spotless and comfortable. We ended up cooking there quite a bit—even tried a new recipe—and had everything we needed. We hit a patch of rainy weather and didn't get out as much as we expected, but it didn't dampen our fun. The roads to the cabin provide good traction (and scenery), and the nearby cafés and stores provided plenty of supplies and atmosphere. It was a most pleasant stay.
Tree Frog was just perfect. Our dog loved it. She was more relaxed there than at home, since the deck allowed her access to the front door, back door, full deck, and full backyard at all times. The rooms were clean, beds very comfortable, furnishings well chosen, and all as expected. Our family was able to fully relax and get away from the summer heat, and hike, mountain bike, and sight-see either with our dog, or while knowing she had dog-friendly accommodations. 5 stars!
This is a great family get away! Cabin is furnished beautifully, great yard for our pets. Highly recommend!
My husband and I spent the weekend with friends and our dogs at White Squirrel cabin. Everything was perfect. The cabin is beautiful and nicely decorated with a big fenced in yard for the pups. The location is ideal between downtown Brevard and several breathtaking waterfalls. We highly recommend it!
You are centrally located to all of the wonderful sights of the mountains. The gateway to the Pisgah National Forest with its 157,000 acres of forest and its hundreds of miles of hiking trails lies just below. At the top of the Forest road lies the Blue Ridge Parkway with high altitudes of over 6400 feet and some of the most beautiful sights on the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. On the other side of you is the DuPont State Forest where The Hunger Games was filmed with 10,000 acres of trails and stunning waterfalls.
Within less than an hour lies the city of Asheville with its historic downtown and the Biltmore Estate in the opposite direction are the quaint towns of Hendersonville and Lake Lure. Head south and the road takes you over to Caesar's Head State Park in South Carolina. Yet another way will lead you to Lake Toxaway and further on to the towns of Highlands and Cashiers.
There are many great activities in the Brevard area such as world-class trout fishing, hiking, rock climbing, rafting, river tubing, horseback riding, zip lining and mountain biking. We are happy to point you in the right directions for activities that might suit you and suggest some of our favorite hikes. The Western Mountains of North Carolina are known for their hospitality so come and join us in the mountains for the ultimate vacation experience with your best friend!
