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 Eastatoe
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!

Quiet and Away from it all
My family really enjoyed the stay. Serenity is secluded and yet very comfortable. But with the seclusion came a lot of travel time in the car to get to some of our highlighted destinations West of Sapphire. Easy trip to Brevard and Pisgah National Forrest. Serenity had all we needed when it was time to head back and relax. Thank you for the use of the property. And make sure you hit the Mountain Meadow waterfall recommended by the owners, beautiful and not many visitors.
Great place to get away from it all!
Our family had a wonderful time. This Place was clean, roomie, and peaceful. It certainly takes after it’s name, Serenity!
Amazingly Peaceful Christmas at Serenity
We just enjoyed a wonderful week at Don and Kathie’s beautiful mountain home. The directions that they provide are spot on – and as you drive up the gravel road you are greeted by a secluded cabin on the top of a mountain with a panoramic view. Upon entering, we felt “at home” already. The décor is mountain fresh and you can tell that a lot of personal touch went into making this home feel welcome. We used this cabin as our home base to explore the Pisgah National Forest, Dupont state forest, as well as Jones Gap and Caesar’s Head state park. We found the location extremely convenient as we drove into Brevard to Ingels to stock up on groceries. We made use of the fully stocked kitchen to make our meals at home and for the day of hiking. We enjoyed the Charcoal grill out back. A couple of nights we made it to Hendersonville for some great dinners. Everything about this cabin made for a great week. One of the best features is the old school wood burning stove / fireplace, which we used a couple of times that made for a fantastic sit by the fire evening. Only a couple of minor things – the kitchen does not have a dishwasher so that is a manual process. In addition, the master bedroom is a smaller bed so we split the bedrooms for our trip. Coming from Florida I never had to use a gas furnace – so lighting the downstairs heater was a bit tricky for me – but I finally got the hang of it. The owners called to check on us the night we checked in to make sure that there was nothing we needed – I thought that was a very nice personal touch. Serenity lived up to our expectations and we hope to be back in the fall in 2018 for the fall color change. I hope that Don and Kathie consider splurging for a hot tub to make this the Perfect Get-a-way :)
Very clean well decorated place. The small lake and canoe are a very nice plus.
Perfect for a Family of 4 during 3 nights. Fire pit is great. We love Brevard (25 minutes away) and hikes.
Spent most of our time at Serinity or chasing waterfalls. House was well equipped, comfortable and quite. No problems.
We stayed at Serenity for a long weekend away from it all. We absolutely fell in love with the location and how it's tucked away peacefully. The air was crisp, the grounds are clean and well kept with a stunning view. We spent most of our time outside, had a camp fire at night, and enjoyed the nearby lake at sunset and sunrise. Serenity is truly a home away from home with everything you need to cook and get cozy at night. Don and Kathie are full of kindness and care. They were available at any time to answer any questions we had. We cannot wait to come back and visit... this time bringing more family to enjoy this litttle piece of heaven!!!
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!
