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 glass bead jewelry and unique silk and wool scarves can be seen at the #7 Arts and Craft Gallery at 12 E. Main St. downtown Brevard.

Elda Brown purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Elda Brown chose Smoky Mountains

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!

A great stay in Brevard!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, including one toddler, found everything to be just perfect at this charming and recently renovated bungalow! Everything was comfortable and all needs were provided for, from an iron and ironing board to hair dryer, and everything in between! A short walk into downtown with great shops and restaurants! We were in town for a family wedding, but we would stay here again for another visit !

Location and Charm ---> perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a great cottage within walking distance to downtown Brevard. The house was great for our family of five. It had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. Owners were very responsive and even though we didn't need them for anything during our stay, we feel confident that they would have attended to any needs right away. We hope to be back!!

Peaceful, convenient Brevard Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Maple Street bungalow. The owners were very accommodating and understanding....even after our new little Jack Russell "Terrorist" gnawed on a night stand. Located an easy walk from downtown Brevard, the house is in a perfect location to enjoy the eating, drinking and shopping options of Brevard and a very short drive to all the outdoor activities we enjoy so much.

This is the in-town spot to be!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this wonderful home for over a month in June/July while our oldest was at summer camp. It was absolutely perfect. Just a block or two from downtown, parks, farmers market...we literally walked everywhere we went in Brevard. The front porch saw many a morning coffee and evening (sometimes afternoon) wine glass. If you want to feel what its like to live in this wonderfully charming town, you need to stay here. It also is right next to anything you want to do outdoors. Within a short drive is all the hiking, camping, kayaking, outdoor fun you could ever want. The owners live next door and are extremely welcoming. Very accommodating of our dogs and kids. The extra local touches at the house when we arrived were awesome. Nothing like a little local coffee waiting for you on that first morning to help start your trip off right! We will be back!
