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.

Colleen Snyder purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Colleen Snyder chose Smoky Mountains

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 the Disneyland of beers!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend at your cabin! Beautiful views, warm and homey. Location was convenient to the surrounding parks and town of Brevard. We love it here! Thanks again.

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin's location was great, close to Brevard and tons of waterfalls and hiking trails. The cabin itself is very nice and clean. We would definitely stay again.

Charming and cozy stay

  • 5 of 5

Serenade Cove was all as described and is a cozy mountain retreat. The Living room is welcoming, the kitchen has all the supplies you need, and the bedrooms are comfortable. We utilized the kitchen to make great meals nearly every evening in the well stocked kitchen. The location was convienent for our first trip to Asheville. I would stay here again.

Serenade Cove was a perfect home-away-from-home for us...

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our Anniversary weekend at Serenade Cove, and were delighted with it. Everything we could've asked for was there, and it was very cozy and warm. Crazy weather set it and it snowed one night. We woke up to a true winter wonderland outside with about 4 inches of snow on every visible surface. We want to come back!

We are people who like to cook. We Cooked a rib roast our first night, chicken tacos our second night, and blackened chicken pasta our third night. We had everything we needed to make all that happen. We have a 7 month old who was completely content as well as two dogs. Hendersonville is minutes away. Asheville is 20 minutes away. DuPont State Forest is 10 minutes away and dog friendly. Had a great time. The view is perfect!

An absolutely perfect mountain cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was an absolutely perfect place for a girls getaway! It slept six comfortably, had tons of space inside and outside on the porch, and had all of the things we needed. Perfect distance to drive into Asheville for the day. We do not want to leave!
