About Don & Kathie Briola

Don & Kathie have been married 26 years. We fell in love with the area immediately and after vacationing here for 13 years we decided to retire here. We moved in the summer of 2013 from Savannah,Ga with our two cats and our dream realized.

Don & Kathie Briola purchased this house in 2013

Why Don & Kathie Briola chose Smoky Mountains

We bought this property for the mountain view and quiet, serene location. It is for us an ideal mountain retreat, with the Smokies as a backdrop. The remote location is still within minutes of supplies and recreational activities for all ages. We also like the close proximity to Line Runner Lake.

What makes this house unique

When we purchased the property the basement was unfinished. It is now a cozy area for entertainment, reading, and playing games. There is a bedroom & bath in the basement.

The front porch swing and sitting area is a great place to have your morning coffee and look at the mountains.

The master bedroom also has a view of the mountains, so why not have breakfast in bed!

Pictures don't do it justice!!

  • 5 of 5

From the very moment you turn off the main road and head up the gravel road you can tell this is a special place. We saw a large buck and several turkeys even before we made it to Serenity's drive. The climb up the drive leaves keeps the anticipation building and once you round the bend you are greeted with a remarkable view. The house on the left and the mountains to the right!! The wooden rocking chairs and swing on the front porch are nice touch and with the mountain view they definitely got plenty of use. The inside was remarkable and decorated very nicely. There was more than enough sleeping space for our family of 6. The brochures on things to do were nice and covered everything either rain or shine. Would love to see the view in the fall. We had a great experience and will definitely consider staying here again in the future!!

Great home with great owners

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house set on top of a mountain. The views you see in the pictures don't do it justice. The home was spotless when we got there and had no issues during our stay. The house has everything you need, grill, porch, plenty of parking. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice getaway. If you have any questions the owners will respond quickly and answer any questions you have. They were nice enough to call us about a question we had, that doesn't happen often! Thank you for a great week

Chasing Waterfalls.

  • 5 of 5

Our main goal was to see waterfalls and the areas national forest and parks did not disappoint. It was much more than we expected. Even on the way back to Nashville, TN. from our stay in Rosman N.C. was incredible while traveling the scecnic 215 route.

The cabin was immaculate with a wonderful view of Mother Nature working her magic in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Serenity is appropriately named! So tranquil and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of Serenity went beyond anything we expected to make our stay enjoyable. The bedding is second to none and that was much needed as I took a spiritual retreat to the mountains. It was so nice waking up to the sounds of the forest and the incredible view. The home itself has so many special touches that made our stay peaceful. I would like to return and use the outdoor fire pit one day. I spent my days reading on the porch and exploring the area. The owners left a notebook with things to see and do in the area. We visited the waterfall nearby and enjoyed the Blue Ridge Parkway. The only negative to me was the mile long dirt road and drive way. It has some significant ridges and bumps (It wouldn't have been a big deal except I drove my new Mercedes and not my truck!) My daughter said the road wasn't bed in her Nissan! I will definitely give Serenity my highest recommendation for a peaceful and tranquil place to stay.

Located just minutes from Brevard, Serenity is located near Rosman NC. It is within 35 minutes of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The French Broad river is nearby and an outfitter is near Rosman where canoe and kayak trips/rentals are available. The town of Brevard is 25 minutes away and offers shopping and fine dinning opportunities. The towns of Cashiers,Highlands, and Franklin are also great day trips for shopping as well as many hiking and waterfall stops along the way. (A hike around Whiteside mountain is a must). This is Transylvania county and is known as land of the waterfalls. (There is a magnificent waterfall within 10 minutes of Serenity.

The cabin itself sits on top of a hill at about 2800 feet with a mountain view. As it is 2.7 miles from the nearest highway it is calm and serene. Enjoy mornings or evenings sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Come in the fall to enjoy the changing of the leaves. Take a short walk from tha cabin and see Line Runner Lake. We hope that you enjoy Serenity as much as we do!
