About Tim & Corey Gafnea

After vacationing with our family in Brevard for several years, Tim & I decided to make the move from Atlanta to Brevard and we originally moved into this home before buying our dream house 1 mile away on Maple Street. We decided to keep our 'Carolina Cottage' and so we renovated the kitchen and updated the bathrooms.

We feel incredibly blessed to call this lovely community home. Our hope is that you enjoy it as much as we do. We want to do everything we can to make your visit as pleasant as possible. If there is anything special you would like for us to have ready for you, just ask!

Tim & Corey Gafnea purchased this house in 2013

Why Tim & Corey Gafnea chose Brevard

We hope you have a great time relaxing and exploring Brevard, the waterfalls, and all the outdoor activities in the mountains. Whether it's music, food, hiking, biking, birding, fishing or just waiting to spot the abundant white squirrels we hope you enjoy your stay at the Carolina Cottage.

What makes this house unique

This house is very cozy and convenient to downtown Brevard (.7 miles)

Kitchen was renovated in Feb 2015.

Good secure storage for bikes on the front porch!

We live in town and are available to answer any questions - provide you with an insiders view to all that Brevard and the surrounding area offers.

Nice backyard for kids to play in.

Comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This house fit us comfortably. Inviting common spaces and enough room for individual quiet spaces. We especially enjoyed the well appointed kitchen. The porch was a great spot for watching white squirrels.

Great stay in a cute mountain town.

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and as promised. The location was in a quiet neighborhood with white squirrels and a very short drive into Downton. The owners replied quickly and were easy to work with.

Carolina Cottage Convenience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our too-short stay in this well-provisioned small home. The kitchen had a full compliment of dishes and appliances, the bed was comfortable, the location was only a mile walk from downtown Brevard. Bust most importantly, when we had a problem the owner arrived at 7PM within 15 minutes to work with us for a solution.
