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 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 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.

Peaceful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the cabin. My girls (7 and 9) enjoyed exploring around the cabin and my wife and liked reading on the porch. It was very peaceful and quiet but at the same time a quick drive to the restaurants and shops of both Brevard and Hendersonville. I would recommend trying Sweet Gypsy Coffee in Hendersonville and listing the toy store in Brevard. We hiked in Pisgah and Dupont - several beautiful waterfalls. The cabin was very clean and comfortable and Colleen was very helpful. We hope to be staying here again soon!

Cozy and Great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size for what my wife and I were looking for in a long weekend in the mountains to be able to hike with our 2 dogs. Cozy and well appointed, great view from front deck. Enough surrounding property to walk the dogs up back on trails to the upper pond and also down drive to lower pond. Great location to Brevard and Pisgah Forest. Great directions and info binder in cabin of which we found a fun one-day waterfall hike/tour that we took advantage of. Enjoyed the "house warming" bottle of wine provided. Will definitely look to return in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at Serenade Cove, spending time hiking in Pisgah, and shopping in nearby Biltmore Village, REI, and Hendersonville. A lovely getaway! We will return.

Look no further...

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an awesome cabin minutes from Dupont and Pisgah - this is the place! My family absolutely loved it during the Thanksgiving holiday. Minutes from grocery stores and two amazing little towns (Hendersonville and Brevard). I could keep writing but it is safe to say we will be back. I am already working on planning a mountain biking trip with some friends and Serenade Cove will more than likely be home base.

We had an amazing time at a beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

Serenade Cove was everything if not more than we had hoped! The cabin and surrounding property is beautiful! The mountain view was great! Everything that we needed was supplied at the cabin. So much is easily accessible from the property. Asheville, the Parkway, waterfalls, hiking, anything you can think of. Colleen and Curtis came to make sure the gas fireplace was working properly because they knew we were going to have a few cold nights, the first of the season! We will definitely come back!!
