About Elda Brown

Property manager Elda Brown owns this charming bungalow along with her husband Kevin Jones. They live next door and are available to help you make the most out of your vacation or stay in Brevard. Elda is a local artist whose unique silk and merino wool scarves and hats can be seen at the #7 Arts and Craft Gallery at 2 W. Main St. downtown Brevard.

Elda Brown purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Elda Brown chose Brevard

We wanted to preserve the unique nature of our street by saving the house next door to us, which was seriously in need of some tender love and kindness. We purchased it in May and began the renovation in June 2014. Thanks to the skill and hard work of our friend, master carpenter and all-around super Mr Fix-It, Rick Mickewicz, and his wife Maryann, the Maple Street Bungalow has turned out wonderfully! We've put a lot of blood sweat and tears into fixing the house up so that our guests can visit and enjoy this town we love so much. Living downtown is so great! We can walk two blocks to the Farmer's Market where we buy our meats and vegetables directly from the farmer's who raise them. Most of the 5 and 10k road races pass right in front of the house as do groups of cyclists heading out to ride on our mountain roads. The main library is just at the end of the street. The library free live music at the outdoor amphitheater. From the fabulous front porch and the back deck of our Maple Street Bungalow you can sit and check out the white squirrels too. Come experience it and you'll see what we mean!

What makes this bungalow unique

Ask anyone who lives in Brevard and they will tell you that Maple Street is a special location. One of the first things you are bound to hear about is Halloween on Maple Street. For years it has been a local tradition for children from all over the county have come to Trick or Treat on Maple Street and Park Avenue. So the police barricade the street and it becomes a huge street party. We set up a card table at the sidewalk to pass out candy to the hundreds of trick or treaters. Last year we gave out 1500 pieces of candy! Maybe because we live in Transylvania County we take our costumes seriously here. Everyone from adults to infants dress up. There's a Halloween Festival downtown on the Saturday before Halloween complete with a parade and there are lots of other fun events during the spooky season. The start of our festival season (and summer) is The White Squirrel Festival on Memorial Day weekend. From then on there are festivals, special events, cycling and road races going on right up until Christmas. (By the way, you can see white squirrels at play in the yard or the Maple Street Bungalow and all through the neighborhood.) We are just a 5-6 minute drive from the Brevard Music Center and a short walk to the Porter Center on the campus of Brevard College where you can see live music performances from opera to bluegrass and live theatre. Several of the bars in town have live music. We have our own local brewery downtown and some excellent restaurants and coffee shops. After a day spent hiking, kayaking, looking at waterfalls or cycling, its SO nice not to have to drive anywhere. From the Maple Street Bungalow you can walk to everything!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at numerous Homeaway vacation rentals, and by far this home has everything you need...and more. Immaculate, beautiful, spacious, quiet, safe and very well equipped. All of the residents we met while walking our dogs were very friendly, and the owners of this home are awesome. We loved our week-long stay and fell in love with this beautiful area of NC. We plan to come back! Don't hesitate booking this rental. It will not disappoint.

Our family of three had a very comfortable four-night stay and very enjoyable lunch with six local friends, enjoying this porch (pictured here) as well as the enlarged dining table and good chairs for all that the owners next door kindly provided. Many thanks to Elda and Kevin for a wonderful visit.

The sweetest Brevard bungelow in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a jem! We could not ask for a lovelier, cleaner, and more well equipped little get away spot, and right in the heart of Brevard - an easy walk to all the restaurants and shops. The owners live next door, are so friendly and accommodating and take great care of this property. This was our second stay for summer camp drop off and we look forward to many more!

Elda and Kevin are delightful people!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is located in a perfect location, easily within walking distance from downtown. I was there for family and the white squirrel festival. The place was spotless with everything that is needed. They both respected your privacy but were next door if needed. The front was a favorite! With no hesitation , I look forward to staying with them again.
