Our family has owned this lovely A-Frame home for many years and it has been our personal retreat. There are lots of good memories here, and we love the realxing, peaceful feeling we get when we arrive. We leave the rest of the world behind for a while as we enjoy the spectacular view from the gazebo and the cozy atmosphere of the great room. We are looking forward to sharing this experience with you.
The home is located in Pisgah Forest, which is just beside the City of Brevard. From here you can easily reach DuPont State Forest which features beautiful waterfalls, miles of great hiking and biking trails and is the location where many scenes of the first Hunger Games film were shot. You can also visit Pisgah National Forest for more waterfalls, hiking, mountain biking and access to the Blue Ridge Parkway which features spectacular views and scenic driving. Be sure to check out the appropriately named Gorges State Park, another amazing reserve which is truly gorgeous. You are in the heart of fly fishing territory here, so be sure to bring your gear!
Brevard is about ten minutes away, and it has a wonderful small town feeling. Check out the shopping, dining and scenery as you walk down Main Street. Be sure to check out The Proper Pot, a great kitchen store that also sells wine, cheese and other yummy snacks. Another favorite is Main Street Ltd., a great gift shop right next to Quotations Cafe which is known for the occasional patronage of Steve Martin, a seasonal Brevard resident. Of course, Brevard is home to the renowned Brevard Music Center, and is also host to annual festivals including the White Squirrel Festival every Memorial Day Weekend, great 4th of July festivals, the Mountain Song Festival every September, and lots of fun activities on Halloween (Brevard is in Transylvania County, after all).
Hendersonville, Asheville and Greenville SC are all less than an hour away, and each offers a unique experience. If you want to try ziplines, check out The Gorge in Saluda which boasts the fastest, longest and steepest ziplines in the world. Lake Toxaway, Highlands and Cashiers round out the other nearby towns that you might want to include in your itinerary.
We hope you enjoy our little home as much as we do, and we look forward to hosting you. Our property is managed by Pete Key Properties, and they are here to help if you have any questions or need assistance with anything. Thanks for visiting, and we hope to see you soon!
