About Brennan

I love the ocean and the mountains.

Brennan purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Brennan chose Brevard

It's the perfect cottage for a home base when exploring. I have done many renovations to the cottage since purchasing it and hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!

What makes this cottage unique

I love the front porch swing and back deck, the original hardwood floors and fireplace are also just as wonderful (built in 1928). Simple and understated. Gas grill is great for BBQs in the spring and summer. Amazing locale - steps away from any outdoor adventure you wish to partake in.

This cottage was exactly what we were looking for, quiet, comfortably and cozy. The price was right and had everything we expected, also had very comfortable beds! Close to town and convenient to everything, we would rent again!

Spacious, clean, and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage. Spacious, clean, and comfortable! We loved hanging out by the fire and swinging on the porch swing. The cottage is in a great location so we were able to explore Downtown, go hiking, and it didn't take us long at all to get to the Sierra Nevada Brewery for dinner one night. Loved it here. We will be back!

Great getaway place.

  • 4 of 5

My son and I wanted to be close to hiking trails, waterfalls, and fishing for a guys getaway... and this place was ideal. We enjoyed the property. The cottage was nicely decorated and it felt as if we went back in time, but with modern amenities. The cottage is in a little neighborhood and close to other homes, so if you want lots of nature and privacy, this might not be your pick. If you want 'character', convenience, good customer service, and a unique visit, this is a good pick.

Peaceful stay in the mountains just outside of Brevard

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Character for 4 nights while taking our daughter back to Brevard College. The cottage was clean and well stocked and had a great shower! The washer and dryer are great to have. Since it was the two of us, we stayed in the master bedroom. I loved the sheers as it let the sunlight in, but I do think window shades would have been nice at night. Closer to Brevard than it seems, there is an alternate route that gets you to Brevard in 6 mins. We would definitely stay again!!

Felt Like Home

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I spent a long weekend in this cozy little cottage and we were beyond impressed. The moment we stepped through the door, I was in love. The place was clean, and well taken care of. It truly felt like home and I would recommend it to anyone.
