About Colleen Snyder
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. We have recently purchased the 5+ acres with the pond below the cabin and are building a larger vacation rental home there; it should be completed by early 2019.

Why Colleen Snyder chose Hendersonville
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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 Malt Disney World!

Cute private cabin close to all the outdoor activities we love to do!
We loved our stay at this cabin, easy to get to and close to Brevard, Pisgah, and Hendersonville and all that those area's have to offer! It's clean, quiet and private, yet is not too far off the main road, and has everything you need to enjoy your getaway, fully stocked kitchen, gas fireplace, tv's with HD cable, laundry, dishwasher, great deck and a nice view. We spent the Thanksgiving week there with my wife's parents and it worked out great for our meals and hanging out together. It does have 2 bedrooms and a loft with a couple twins so it could sleep 6, but keep in mind the cabin is on the small side, so if you need more privacy it might be a little tight. Colleen was a super good host and easy to communicate with, we will be back but maybe this time without the inlaws;)
Serenade Cove was a perfect getaway in a beautiful setting.
Close to all that the area has to offer! Hiking, mountain biking, breweries and more. Far enough away from Asheville to be peaceful and quiet... but close enough to enjoy what the city has to offer. The view from the porch was awesome to wake up to every morning. :-)
We are on our way home after spending a wonderful long weekend at Serenade Cove. We’ve stayed at many VRBOs and this was one of our favorites. Colleen made everything so easy, especially the Check out process. We loved the location right off a main road but still feels secluded. Everything was clean and well maintained. The fireplace was our favorite as the temperatures were cool and being from FL we don’t get to use a fireplace often. We got all of the college football games Saturday which was great. It’s close enough to Brevard, Hendersonville, and Asheville to do day trips each day. This will definitely be our first property to check when we return next year.
Perfect for nature lovers!
We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at this cozy cabin on the outskirts of Dupont State Forest and Pisgah. We had easy access to the forest trails for multiple days of mountain biking and hiking, and the cabin itself was super comfortable and well appointed. Serenade Cove is situated on a large parcel of land with its own walking trails right off the driveway. Late afternoon sun warmed the front porch, so we gathered with our wine and cheese to take in the amazing views. We recommend this cabin to anyone who loves to be "in the woods," yet have every modern convenience. We'll definitely stay here again!
My fiancé and i stayed here for a week and it was an amazing experience. Loved the privacy and how you could truly relax. However you were still close to the stores and other attractions. Colleen ensured the house is completely equipped with all the necessities. We will definitely do this again!
Serenade Cove is conveniently located just 10 minutes from Dupont State Forest and 12 minutes from the entrance to Pisgah National Forest. It is an ideal base camp for mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, fishing and exploring the "Land of Waterfalls," Transylvania County. If you stay close to home, you will have your own private 20+ acre retreat with hiking trails to explore.
