About Lisa Sykes
We are the Sykes family, & we have had vacation property in Brevard for about 12 years. Eight years ago, we decided to move with our three children from ATL to Brevard permanently, & our quality of life has gone through the roof. After about a year, we decided to list our vacation homes on VRBO so that we could share them w/ visitors coming to our beautiful county. Several years later, we purchased an 84-acre farm that we have lovingly restored to it's former glory. We added it to our VRBO listings, & the farmhouse has been quite popular, as well. We became aware that there was a growing interest in rental properties located within walking distance of downtown Brevard. Many tourists prefer to be near the local shops, restaurants, and breweries. We found this house and decided it was perfect for what we had in mind.
Lisa Sykes purchased this House in 2016
Why Lisa Sykes chose Brevard
This house has numerous things going for it. The main one is the location...it is situated adjacent to Brevard College and within walking distance of downtown Brevard. You can arrive, park your car, and walk to our many wonderful shops, restaurants, breweries, and movie theater. Additionally, it can accommodate larger parties due to its size (5BRs, 3.5 Ba), so it is perfect for large families, cycling groups, and retreats.

Wonderful location - attractive furnishings & decor- older home with perfect updates-
We were in town for a family wedding held at brevard college, so it was a perfect spot for us- very nice, spacious, clean & well appointed-
Great Friends Weekend House
We had an awesome time staying here with our friends and our dog for Burning Can weekend. The house is really comfortable, nicely renovated and decorated, clean, spacious and convenient. We loved sitting around the large living room, and everyone was very comfortable since there are so many bedrooms and bathrooms. There is parking for 4 cars so the house is perfect for groups. It is close to restaurants - we loved Dugan's Pub for brunch - and close to the bike trail if you cut through campus. We can't wait to book this house again next year!
Clean and comfortable and close to downtown
Brought my family of 7 and it was just right, thank you we will be back!
Close to town and mountains
Spent a weekend here with a group of friends enjoying the outdoors and Brevard.
This roomy cottage served as a great base for us to explore the area. We spent the mornings enjoying the local/regional cycling. You can get to some great areas quickly. Spent the afternoon and evenings checking out the 4 breweries in town and the great restaurants.
The cottage was large enough to accommodate 6 of us without difficulty. Very functional. Good kitchen. Nice outdoor deck. plenty of parking.
We had a wonderful time in Brevard and this house was perfect for our 2 families!! I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious it was on the inside because from the outside, the house looks a little small. The bedrooms are large and the bathroom updates are so nice. We hiked, biked and explored everyday and then loved coming back to this house and relaxing or going downtown which is only a couple of blocks away. There is a coffee shop just a block away also. This house is great for older kids who want to bike or walk into town to explore on their own. Brevard has so much to offer and we can't wait to come back next year. I highly recommend this house. It had everything we needed!!
A First Class Stay all the way!
A wonderful stay at AppleTree Cottage. A beautifully presented property, excellent facilities and spotless. Access instructions were clear and simple.
The location couldn’t be better, Main Street at the top of the road, and Ingles around the corner.
We were a mixed group of seven friends returning to Brevard for a forty year reunion, we decided to choose a house over the local motel and it was inspired decision.
The social space and deck made our stay.
The three and a half baths were easily adequate.
We would all, without question, recommend Apple Tree to any family or mixed group.
Before you ask, “there has to be something not quite right”, well, more and better coat hangers would be good, and I have to say, a glaring error for a group of Brits, no kettle or tea pot, otherwise a great find, we plan to return, but not wait so long next time.
Brevard offers something for everyone who comes to visit. For hikers, cyclists, and nature enthusiasts, both DuPont Forest and Pisgah Forest offer endless hours of fun for visitors of all ages. Hiking or cycling to see the abundance of beautiful waterfalls in Transylvania County is a favorite pastime. Rock climbers find numerous routes in Pisgah Forest to be both exciting and challenging. Families, especially the children, love visiting Sliding Rock, floating down the rivers, and eating ice cream at Dolly's (at the entrance to Pisgah Forest). Kids of all ages enjoy another favorite pastime...trying to find our elusive white squirrels. They can usually be found on the campus of Brevard College. Downtown Brevard also boasts some wonderful restaurants, art galleries, shoppes of all kinds, and numerous breweries. Further from town, numerous local pottery studios have been proven to be popular with visiting tourists.
