Elda Brown purchased this bungalow in 2005
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!
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!
My husband and I really enjoyed our four night stay. The bungalow is very clean and well taken care of. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. The location is very close to some great hiking trails. Elda and Kevin could not have been more accommodating and responsive. We would definitely recommend this home and look forward to a return stay on our next visit to the area.
Clean and comfortable. Everything provided to make stay comfortable. Would recommend to others.
My husband, dog and I spent a week in this bungalow and I can't say enough good about the experience. We have been coming to Brevard for about 10 years to mountain bike and attend concerts at the Brevard Music Center. This bungalow was our best experience yet. Elda and Kevin are very nice folks and they have done a wonderful job with the bungalow. They have thought of everything. The house was absolutely immaculate when we arrived. The furniture and beds are comfortable, the artwork on the walls is lovely, the kitchen is well equipped. The front porch is a nice place to hang out and drink coffee (they even provided a bag of Brown Bean coffee which was terrific). The neighborhood is outstanding--you can walk anywhere (pastries from the Bracken Mountain Bakery are only a few minutes away). You can walk to a number of nice restaurants (we always visit Hob Nob and Square Root) and Dupont State Park is about 15 minutes away by car. There are a number of trailheads in Pisgah that are nearby too. We were able to walk the dog on the quiet sidewalks of the Maple St neighborhood. Everyone we met was pleasant and welcoming. The Farmer's Market is only 2 blocks away. The Brevard Music Center is only 5 or 10 minutes by car. Thanks, we had a great trip.
We spent a week in this charming bungalow in Brevard. The house is very comfortable and homey. It's just a few blocks from downtown Brevard and all the shops and restaurants there, and the public library is just a block away. The owners are wonderful to work with. We've stayed at this property twice and will stay again when we head back to Brevard.
The house is very convenient to downtown Brevard. My husband and I parked our car and didn't use it again until we left for home. In addition, the house has been renovated, and is very comfortable and inviting. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Brevard.
I have been coming to Brevard several times a year for 6 years, have stayed here twice and have booked again for the month of October. This is a renovated home in walking distance to downtown Brevard. The owners live next door and are there if you need them. The house is adorable with anything you might need. Being able to walk everywhere is one of the reasons I enjoy staying here. I feel very at home here.
Stay downtown and walk to everything! After a day of outdoor activities you can walk to restaurants and live music venues, galleries and shopping. Our guest house is just 5 short blocks from historic downtown Brevard and a 5-6 minute drive from the Brevard Music Center. Nearby are many family activities such as hiking, kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, cycling, fly fishing and tubing on the river.
