Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We relocated to the mountains of western North Carolina in 2004 and bought the cabin and 6+ acres in 2006. It had been a long-time summer getaway for a family and was sorely in need of a makeover! We were able to refinish and keep the original wood floors but the entire home was gutted and remodeled. The layout was completely redesigned to allow for a comfortable, open floor plan and windows were added for more natural light. When the 15+ acres behind the property became available, we purchased it and opened up some old hiking trails that were overgrown.

Why the Owner Chose Hendersonville, NC, USA:
We have been visiting western North Carolina for years to hike and mountain bike. Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Forest are two of our favorite destinations. We feel fortunate to live in this area now and love sharing it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Serenade Cove offers a hard-to-find combination of privacy and convenience. It is truly a cabin in the woods, and you feel like you are miles away from civilization, but you can grab some groceries or a pizza 5 minutes away in the small town of Etowah. You are also only 15-20 minutes from Hendersonville or Brevard, and 20 minutes from Sierra Nevada's new east coast brewery, which we call the Disneyland of beers!
