About Tom Traywick

Tanne and I were born and raised in the SC low country. Escaping the summer heat by traveling to the mountains of WNC was something we always enjoyed. We moved to this area when Tanne retired after 28 years as a teacher. I am now retired from my consultancy as a funding compliance analyst for public school districts.

Tom Traywick purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

It is bright, open, airy; in a very quiet neighborhood; and a pleasant walk to town.

Beyond excellent

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Brevard NC from Canada for 4 years as our son received a lacrosse scholarship . Tom's house is hands down the nicest we've come across. Our last visit was for 2 weeks and it truly felt our home away from home. He has provide everything you'd need to enjoy your time there. A fresh bowl of fruit was there upon our arrival.

This is a must property to rent if you're staying in Brevard. There was not even 1 thing to improve on.

Great place to stay in Brevard!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with good space in all rooms and screened porch to boot. Property nicely maintained and the fenced yard is outstanding for fuzzy travel companions. White squirrels were all around and only a minute or two from center of Brevard!

Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Trust all the reviews you read on this property. Every positive statement you read is accurate. This Sunday house is immaculate, well maintained and very comfortable. Like others will mention the screened in porch is a wonderful plus with this home as you drink your morning coffee, enjoy the white squirrels and create new family memories. I would highly recommend this rental property for your family.

Clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean and roomy house only minutes, we always drove,from downtown Brevard. The front yard is fenced and beautifully lush with plants. Loved watching the lightening bugs in the evening. Screen porch was well used and appreciated while drinking morning coffee. Both DuPont and Pisgsh Forest are not far drives. Beds are comfortable. We ate all the delicious spelt bread that was dropped off at the house. This house was a great home base for our hiking vacation.

Music, arts and dining in Brevard and Asheville (30 minutes) are terrific. We are an hour from Greenville SC, 2 hours from Charlotte NC and 3 hours from Atlanta.

The Brevard area includes the highest concentration of waterfalls in the world, over 100,000 acres of public parks and forests (public lands such as Caesar’s Head State Park, Jones Gap State Park, duPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and Gorges State Park), and the internationally acclaimed Brevard Music Center.

And the Brewery Tour at Oskar Blues is worthy if you are so inclined - and ride their free trolley service from Brevard to Asheville. The Sierra Nevada Brewery is a destination for dining and the brewery tour.
