About Frances Wechsler
The Wechsler Family is from Decatur, GA. Along with our four children we enjoy cycling and horseback riding. We are quite active in the cycling community and have enjoyed hosting many rides in Dupont and along the Blueridge Parkway with friends and family. Several of our friends are professional cyclists who enjoy staying at Trail-Side for training. We are very relaxed and want our guests to enjoy the cabin as much as we do.
Frances Wechsler purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Frances Wechsler chose Little River
In 2013 we went to Brevard to visit our daughter at Camp Eagle's Nest and rented a cabin adjacent to Dupont State Park. We had never visited the area and fell in love with it at once. We were amazed at the beauty of the forest and waterfalls with such easy access to activities we are passionate about.... horses and bikes! . While out biking we came upon Trailside Escape and couldn't resist purchasing it because of its quaint style and incredible location. Tom is an avid biker and I have 2 horses. The location of the house eliminates the travel time of hauling horses and bikes to and from Dupont. We have spent 2 years renovating and preparing the property to share with others. Now we hope that you can enjoy it as much as we do.

Great spot and so good if you want to mountain bike Dupont!
This house is super cute, clean, and well taken care of. We enjoyed our stay.
Great place for riding and relaxing
Wonderful cabin that is close to DuPont. The property is is extremely nice and the hosts have thought of everything. Will go back soon !
Thanks Mike! Looking forward to having you as neighbors! The risk of visiting DuPont is that you never want to leave!
Perfect mountain getaway
Frances' cabin was clean and comfortable. We stayed with two small children and enjoyed easy access to hiking and waterfalls. Also close to good food and beer in Hendersonville, Brevard and Asheville. The setting is beautiful and quiet. Frances was extremely responsive to our inquiries. Highly recommend.
We had an excellent stay at this site. The cabin was secluded enough to make us truly feel like we had a getaway. It is very well cared for. We enjoyed the big front porch, walking to the pond and horse farm nearby, and the proximity to Dupont Forest and other sites. Had a little trouble with the wifi at first, but figured it out. Loved that there was no TV as all 7 of us had a chance to really reconnect. We will consider staying here again.
Perfect Mountain Escape
This is our first time to visit Asheville and we wanted to find a place that offered quiet and peaceful isolation yet close enough to the city, hiking trails and scenic spots. Trailside Escape offered a cozy retreat tucked close to wonderful Dupont Forest where we hiked through several waterfalls including one that was in The Hunger Games. The owners did a lovely job of decorating the cabin to give it a homey feel. It felt like our home in the mountains. Our family enjoyed playing board games at night and just relaxing. Lastly, the owner, Frances, was extremely helpful and even gave good recommendations for fun activities.
Perfect Getaway with convenience
Trailside Escape was PERFECT for my family! The property was beautiful and right in the middle of the Dupont Forest and a quick drive to waterfalls such as Wintergreen, Hooker, and Triple Falls. There are so many more that are literally around the corner from the cabin, but we only had time for the three. Downtown Brevard is an easy 10 minute drive from the cabin. We enjoyed cooking burgers on the grill and made smores for dessert over the campfire. The trails were easy enough for my 8 and 10 year old nephews and my elderly father. My dogs loved running on the property and on the trails. Again, everything was perfect, my husband and I would love to return to the cabin in the summer. Looks like we found our go to cabin!
Walk down the hill to Shoal Creek Stable and go for a horseback ride with Olivia and Kyle at Shoal Creek Farm. If biking is your thing, ride down our path to Dupont State Park and ride all day. Hiking what you like? Less than a mile away is hiking into beautiful waterfalls. Easy enough for the little ones or difficult ones for hiking enthusiast.
