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

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

This house is like Marry Poppins, perfect in every way. Great layout, good room sizes and beds are all really comfy. Location is perfect for your stay in Brevard. Why can't every VRBO be so easy to check in and pay. The owners are not uptight at all and that goes a long way if you have every stayed at places with all kinds of rules and procedures during your stay. So simple. So perfect.

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5

This is a 5 star home and allowed us to have a wonderful reunion. Everything about the house and furnishings assures a comfortable visit. It was spotless when we arrived. The kitchen was filled with nice pots, pans and basics. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were more than adequate. The rooms are large and perfect for family events. There is plenty of parking. The house is close enough to restaurants and shops that walking is very pleasant during good weather. We would certainly hope to stay in the house again. The owner went out of her way to ensure that all was well.

Car: not necessary

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.
