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.

Definitely Charming for a holiday away from home
We had extended family gathering in Brevard for Thanksgiving and six of us stayed here. We all gathered for dinner here with the help of a card table we brought. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a traditional feast (we did bring our own smoker to smoke the turkey in the driveway) and it was fantastic. We also walked into town to the movies and over to College Walk using the path at the back of Brevard College, so the location was especially perfect for us. Everyone was very impressed by the cute and efficient home. The big screen tv in the living room was perfect for Saturday night football too. If we do this again, this will be our go-to rental.
Pleasant, comfortable and spacious home, close to town
My wife and I really loved this place. There was plenty of room for us, our kids, and friends. Downtown is quite close, but the neighborhood is removed and quiet. There was a slight mishap with the cleaning, but despite it being after hours, the owner and manager were quick to address/fix and our cleaning fee was even refunded. The beds were exceptionally cozy. We plan to stay here again in the future.
Loved this house
We were in town for our wedding and need a house large enough for our family. This house was perfect. Very spacious, plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms. Everything was spotless and even the bed sheets smelt fresh! Thats a huge plus for us as we like to know that we are sleeping on clean sheets. The beds were all very comfortable and the house was just right. Plenty of parking and so close to town. We love the restaurant Dugans which was within perfect walking distance. If we ever need a large house agin we will definitely be back!
Such a beautiful clean house in the heart of downtown Brevard! It easily accommodated 10 uf us!
Very comfortable and clean. We even built a fire in the fireplace! Walkable to downtown and close to the trails of Pisgah Forest!
Great house and a great location
The house was exactly what we needed for 3 couples riding the White Squirrel Ride. We were close to everything and enjoyed our stay. We will definitely stay here again. The owner was quick to answer a couple of questions that I had, which was great also.
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-
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.
