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!!

More fabulous than I expected!

  • 5 of 5

Serenity is the perfect name for this get away. My daughter was at a camp in Brevard so there were two adults and two teen boys in our party and we picked my daughter up to spend the last day with us. Yes, the place is a little off the beaten path but that is what we were looking for. The drive up is beautiful and the home is perched up high so that you have a fabulous long view of the mountains. The house was very clean, beautifully decorated, cozy and had the perfect floorplan for us. The boys took the downstairs and we had the upstairs. The home was well equipped with all of the linens and kitchen items that we might need. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch every morning, we used the grill and made steaks one night and made a nice bonfire at the fire pit another night. There is a wonderful lake in the community where the boys could fish (bring your own gear). We visited some of the close by waterfalls which was really nice. We then headed over to Cashiers and went zip lining. Kathie and Don were available to answer questions and to make sure that everything met our expectations. When we left the house we left a few items behind. They promptly mailed a box which included our forgotten clothing items, a $20 bill that fell out of my son's shorts and was found on the floor, a nice bar of Brevard fancy soap and a lovely card. I highly recommend this place and would love to visit again. It is perfect if you are going with another couple or family and need the separate downstairs space. Thank you for a lovely 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!
