About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, close to town/biking,/hiking/waterfalls/fishing/antiquing

A spacious and well stocked 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with a fabulous great room; featuring views of the surrounding forest and manicured natural landscaping, serving up to 8 guests. We brought the comfort of home to your vacation with all new furniture and ultra confortable memory foam mattresses, luxurious linens, towels, etc were newly purchased in 2016. Yard is very spacious with a path through a garden, several spots to relax by the creek and breathe the fresh mountain air, and a fire pit for toasting marshmallows and sipping wine while listening to the creek. Williamson Creek runs along the back and partial side of the property with a bridge to access both sides. All furnishings are well maintained and newly purchased in 2016. Prior guests will enjoy seeing the renovations completed in January 2017 including a new master bathroom, several new upgraded appliances, new windows, fresh paint and décor inside and the addition of a picnic table by the creek for al fresco dining.

Nearby all the Biking and Hiking trails through beautiful forests to waterfalls and scenic overlooks you could want in very nearby Pisgah National Forest and DuPont State Forest. Swim at the base of hooker falls in DuPont, or slide down sliding rock in Pisgah, canoe and fish in the lakes at DuPont State Forest, or fly fish the Davidson River. Located 8 minutes from downtown Brevard, the Brevard Music Center, Brevard College and the Porter Center for the Fine Arts. Stroll the idyllic main street Brevard with its unique shops, antiques, and great restaurants like Marco Trattoria, Square Root, Hob Nob, The Pheonix farm to table, Falls Landing, Jamie Creole Brasserie, and Mayberry’s to name a few favorites, just 5 miles away! Be sure to check out the local Saturday morning market just off Main Street for local farm fresh goods and local artisian crafts, foods, and more!

Enjoy the local breweries like Ecusta Brewing, Brevard Brewery, and Oscar Blues right here in Brevard with a tasting room and live music and food trucks several nights a week. Or plan ahead and book a tour at Sierra Nevada in Fletcher just 20 miles away, be sure to hit up the bar for tastings, and try their great menu offerings. Walking tour of the bottling facility is always an option if you didn't plan a tour.

Just 30 minutes and you’re on the Blue Ridge Parkway with its many overlooks, and trails that are sure to delight!

Bring the family! Kids will fall in love with hiking to waterfalls, visit the cradle of Forestry and take a scenic drive on the parkway. Little ones will love the playground at Franklin Park just off Main Street also offering a public pool, and home to many of Brevard’s infamous white squirrels! OP Taylors Toy store, Kiwi Gelato, and Gem mining are all downtown favorites of our child.

Looking to add a spa day there are several spa's in town, we recommend Elements located minutes away in downtown.

The house is easily accessible on well maintained paved roads at the top of Williamson Creek. A perfect place to have a relaxing, fun, adventurous outdoor vacation with all the modern amenities close by! There is so much to do and see in this area we stay at least 6 weeks a year and don't see or do it all!

About Heather Rutledge

We stumbled upon the Brevard area on a mountain biking trip in 2001 and have been coming back almost every year since. The last few years we have found ourselves here more than 6 weeks a year and decided it was time to invest in our own home. We are avid mountain bikers, hikers, waterfall hunters, amateur photographers, and generally love small mountain towns and this place has it all. The Beautiful forests and well maintained trails abound everywhere, beautiful scenic overlooks and waterfalls to hike to, and we love to go into town for the Saturday market for local foods to cook at home, and often go out for a great meal in town at one of our many favorite restaurants. Even the drive to get anywhere is scenic and relaxing!

Heather Rutledge purchased this house in 2016

Why Heather Rutledge chose Pisgah Forest

What we love most about this home is proximity to everything, town, Pisgah, DuPont, Oscar Blues, and yet we love to relax at home in the great room, or by the fire enjoying the sounds of Williamson creek. We have amazing adventures here and are able to relax!

What makes this house unique

First you fall in love with the beautiful mountains on your drive up, then it’s the fresh mountain air smell, the sound of the creek, the beautifully landscaped yard, then the views the large great room with plenty of space to entertain while hanging at the house between your outdoor adventures. We love rustic mountain decor and have woven it throughout with modern comfort and relaxation in mind. Sitting by the fire at night listening to the creek with a nice glass of wine and toasting marshmallows is the best!

Memorial Day Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a great little hideaway just outside of Brevard and minutes away from tons of great hikes and waterfalls. And if you don't want to leave, send the kids into the backyard to explore the creek, they can play for hours. Had a great stay and for sure will return to this little gem!

Creekside retreat

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful setting for a mountain house. The creek was just perfect for playing in and listening to. The fire pit area was perfect for roasting marshmallows or just sitting. The house had big rooms so lots of space to spread out in. Like to come back in the summer for more playing in the creek

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great get-away for a family gathering of 3 generations. The inside of the home was beautiful, comfortable, and well-stocked, but the highlight for me was the back-yard / garden, which was filled with flowers, butterflies, a flowing creek, and several little "nooks" with swings and a hammock for relaxing.

The only "negative" I can think of is that it took awhile to figure out which switch turned which fan or light on, haha. Thank you for a perfect vacation...!

This property was great if you are looking for a vacation in or near Pisgah Forest

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! It was roomy and perfect for our two families with 4 adults and 3 kids. There were tons of games, puzzles and things to do inside the house. The kitchen was stocked better than most rentals and there was plenty of laundry detergent, dryer sheets, hand soap and dish soap. There was even shampoo and conditioner and soap in the showers! The internet connection was good in an area where LTE doesn't exist. The grounds were by far the best. The stream was wonderful to explore and the fire pit was used every night. Lots of little areas to explore and hidden gems. There are no "sweeping views" at this home but I can guarantee you that you won't be disappointed. Coffee in the morning by the fire pit while the stream bubbled and the birds chirped was awesome. Close to Brevard and plenty of Pisgah activities. Only an hour for lake lure and chimney rock. We will be back! Thanks so much for a great stay.

We chose to give this trip to my husband for Father's Day...BEST GIFT EVER! The house was immaculate. The owner went above and beyond to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. We had everything we needed. We loved the home and the back peaceful! Conveniently located to town. Would definitely come back.
