About the property

Wild Rock Cottage

Wild Rock Cottage is a comfortable home that is built on a beautiful mountainside. Imagine driving down a country lane to a cottage in the woodland. The cottage is nestled on two acres on a quiet peaceful street conveniently located between Brevard and Hendersonville, NC. There is a large porch with handcrafted rhododendron railing where you can eat meals outside, have your morning coffee, soak in the hot tub, or just enjoy relaxing in the mountain air.

Enjoy the peaceful view of the woods, with longer range views during the winter months. In the summer you’ll relish the chance to take refuge from the heat of the city while enjoying the wild rhododendron and mountain laurel. In spring millions of wildflowers bloom. Fall has cool nights and brilliant autumn color.

For those who prefer to relax indoors, we have new HDTVs with cable in the living room and both bedrooms. Fast WiFi Internet access is available throughout the cabin. We also have a full kitchen and full laundry amenities for your convenience.

The cottage is located minutes from the Davidson River, Elm Fork, Pisgah National Forest, and DuPont State Forest, which are all world renowned for the fishing available. The French Broad River has canoe launch access just down the street.

We are near a major scenic BIKE ROUTE. Photography, swimming, hiking, fishing, shopping, scenic drives, and rides are all available minutes away. Historic Hendersonville and quaint downtown Brevard have many super restaurants that range from family friendly casual to upscale gourmet.

Brevard area bloom times:

Late March to early April: Cherry trees, wildflowers, forsythias

Mid to late April: Azaleas

First of May: Dogwoods

About David Sams

We are John and Sarah Sams. John’s family owns several vacation cottages so he is a veteran. Sarah just joined the family and looks forward to this new experience. We live close by in downtown Brevard and enjoy all the area has to offer.

David Sams purchased this cottage in 2016

Why David Sams chose Penrose

Location, location, location. Wild Rock is located on a quiet street where the only cars seen are people that live in the immediate area. Lots of trees and other flora make for a peaceful getaway in nature while still being close enough to towns for anything you could need.

What makes this cottage unique

Vaulted ceilings in the living room with Cedar paneled walls. Hot tub on the porch. Private and quiet neighborhood.

Secluded and peaceful, but still convenient

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a very private getaway, this is the spot. If you're flatlanders like us, the road up to the house can be a little daunting, but we got used to it. You're in the last house on the road, so there's no traffic going by or anything like that.

The wifi worked well, so we were able to get some things done. The bathroom was adequate and the kitchen was well equipped, including a washer and dryer. The hot tub worked for the two of us and was nice for watching the sunset.

You're within 15 minutes of all the big stores (Ingles, Bi-Lo, Walmart) you might need, as well as the Dupont and Pisgah Forests, so there's plenty of outdoor recreation. You're just under an hour from Asheville if you need to see some rich hippies and drink some nanobrews.

Beautiful little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of Wild Rock cabin. The location is perfect! Private and quiet but close enough to go out and enjoy the surrounding towns. We are already planning our next trip as there was so much we didn't get to do this time!

Great secluded cabin but not far from civilization. Shared road but plenty of privacy

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing time and the hot tub works great! Very spacious for a two bedroom and affordable. I would love to come back again later in the fall as the trees had not turned yet. The road is narrow/steep and maybe troublesome in the snow/ice, but it leads to this secluded cabin at the end of it and is nestled below the top of the ridge and shaded all day so it was easy to sleep in as long as you like! There's not much of a panaramic view but we were able to enjoy sitting in the hot tub watching the sun go down no problem! I hope to be back next year!

Owner's Response: Just clarifying, it does not have a "shared " road, just a road that leads up to the cabin, then it's own private driveway :) I would not want anyone to think there was traffic going thru there- Glad to hear you enjoyed it !
