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!

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!
Just what we needed
We rented this home which is secluded and quiet. If that’s what you want then this is your place. It’s a little far from Asheville (30 minutes) but am glad we chose this place. ’
Cute place in great location
Great location. Convenient to Brevard, Flat Rock and Hendersonville. Good jumping off spot if you enjoy Pisgah or DuPont Forest hiking, waterfalls, and outdoors. Cute place with wonderful west facing deck...nice sunset viewing. Clean with antique furnishings.
Loved the vibe

Here are the comments Mike left for us:
Thank you Chris & Colleen for the use of your cabin on the hill. It is a very cozy and hospitable place and I felt fortunate to be able to stay here. Great location between Dupont State Forest & Pisgah National Forest. Both beds very comfortable and really enjoyed the vibe in the house. Only 2 things I'd like to have changed: 1) That the hurricane avoid NC altogether (no control on that one) and 2) a better way to mark the driveway coming off Talley Rd. It was a bit difficult to find the first time. Otherwise was terrific and we will likely return - my wife did not get to make this trip due to an injury.
We loved the house- even had a flying squirrel visit us while we were watching the lightning storms one night from the adorable covered deck! Also saw an owl flying down by the pond. The house is clean and well kept- perfect for our weekend getaway! Driveway was a little steep and bumpy but we made it up without much trouble (it was a little slick when damp from rain)
Cute, clean, private
Nice clean cottage back a private lane with cute antique decor. Away from it all but still close to town. Thank you!
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.
