1 Bedroom 1 Bath Mountain Cottage with Queen size sofa couch in living room

Enjoy the outdoors while staying in comfort. Cottage sits on 13+ private acres with its very own waterfall. No wonder it is located in “The Land of Waterfalls”. Fully furnished and equipped with all the comforts of home, plus a covered porch to enjoy the wildlife. Lots of deer, white and grey squirrels. Occasionally you may see a bobcat, fox or black bear, but they are shy. Several walking trails right out the front door. The Cherokee Indians used to live in our valley and other near by areas up until the 1800's. Last year was our first year renting the cottage. So many people enjoyed sitting on the deck; we expanded the deck and wrapped it around from the kitchen door to make it more convenient for cooking out, etc. Although the cottage sits in the mountains, we are in the Little River Valley; therefore, the roads traveled are not very steep and curvy. It is an easy drive to near by towns.

About Priscilla Tinsley

My husband I built our home in 1993. It is located just up the drive from our guest cottage that was built in 1995. We first purchased a five acre lot and later added acreage for a total of 13+ mountain acres with a waterfall, several creeks and hiking trails throughout the property. We decided to share our mountain tranquility with others and rent out the guest cottage on VRBO.

                                                              Excellent location for fishing in Dupon Forest, Pisgah Forest. Well-appointed with all the comforts needed for a great stay. Owners are lovely, helpful, and easy to rent from.

                                                              We are glad you enjoyed your fishing vacation and decided to return to our cottage for a second time! We look forward to having you return for more fishing trips. Thank you for taking very good care of the cottage.

                                                              very clean, cozy,nestled in wooded lot, there may be more exspensive cottages, but none as charming

                                                              we had a great time, loved the quietness, the woods that the cottage sat on, a real jewel. very reasonably priced

                                                              Great Brevard area getaway!!!

                                                              Three of us went to Brevard for a weekend of mountain biking and we found this cottage and the owners to be wonderful. Everything we needed was provided in the cottage for a great long weekend. If this property is available on my next visit I will certainly not hesitate to return. Thanks for everything.

                                                              Excellent N.C. Mountain retreat

                                                              The Cottage had excellent reviews and my expectations were exceeded. It is nestled in a quiet secluded hillside, and had everything we needed to enjoy a family stay. It was a pleasure to have limited Cell and WiFi , if we needed it we could drive down the hill, The getaway experience was much better without the kids being glued to devices, and they instantly found other ways to have fun. This location is excellent with Dupont state Forest at your back door and Brevard and Pigsah forest just a short drive. We are already dreaming of our next trip!

                                                              My daughters and I have been coming to the Brevard area during the summer for several years now. Bobcat Falls was central to everything we enjoy: Pisgah Forest, downtown Brevard and the music center, and Dupont Forest. Priscilla and Eric are great hosts. The cottage was fully equipped with every convenience: even plastic wrap and foil. Nothing was overlooked. Mornings on the front deck with a cup of coffee were wonderful. If you're looking for a nice base camp for your WNC adventures, consider this location.
