About Nan & Will Long
Peace Out! 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! Namaste, Nan, Will, Talia & Pearl 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.

This was a wonderful place to vacation with our dogs!
This cabin was beautiful! We loved our stay. We've stayed at pet friendly places before and they were okay but having the fenced yard was so nice! No leashes and no crates! There are so many wonderful waterfall hikes close by. It was perfect! We so enjoyed the hot tub and the grill. The only thing missing was a vacuum...We are so sorry for the dog hair left behind...we had two mega shedders! It's just that time of year. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful cabin in the woods.
We are glad you all enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the accommodations to your satisfaction. As dog owners we put a lot of thought in creating our idea of the perfect dog friendly vacation for our guests! We apologize for the lack of vacuum. It broke right before your arrival and we didn't have the time to get you a replacement. Next time you stay there will be one for you to use:).
Thanks again for choosing DogWoods Retreat and we hope to see you all again!

Beautiful secluded cabin in the woods
This was a beautiful place to stay - secluded but a short drive from all activities in the area. Nan and Will have the place stocked with everything you need for your stay.
We are so glad you enjoyed your secluded cabin in the woods. We hope to see you again sometime.

We loved the house. It was super clean when we arrived and the decks are amazing. Love the dog-friendly vibe and it was perfect for two couples.
We are glad you enjoyed the decks and the dog-friendly vibe during your stay with us. We'd love to see you again sometime.
Nice comfy cabin
Great place when visiting with furry family. Love that there is a wood burning fireplace! Well equipped kitchen.
Glad you and the pups enjoyed your stay with us! There is nothing like a wood burning fireplace. We also have fire pits for use during the warmer months. We look forward to seeing you again sometime.

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!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our Tree Frog cabin. We choose furnishing of the same quality we use in our own home. DogWoods Retreat was designed for dogs and their people to enjoy the ultimate vacation together. Our extensive decking, covered porches, and spacious fenced yards ensure that all are truly able to enjoy the great outdoors together. And let's not forget that hot tub under the stars!

Overall a nice place to visit for people who vacation with their dogs
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 are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. As noted DogWoods Retreat was set up to be the dog friendliest vacation on the planet but has also been enjoyed by "dogless" people also.

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!
