About Melissa Kamer

My husband Donny and I feel fortunate to call Pisgah Forest, NC home! We started vacationing here about 4 years ago and we were hooked. As avid mountain bikers, hikers and overall outdoor enthusiasts we visited the area every chance we got. We decided to make a big change and uprooted our lives in Ohio and made the move to beautiful Western North Carolina in 2015. We were excited to purchase a second home and offer it as as a vacation rental, so other outdoor adventurers can experience all the activities, beautiful waterfalls and scenery that Pisgah Forest & Brevard have to offer!

Melissa Kamer purchased this house in 2016

Pisgah Forest Adventure

  • 5 of 5

The route house was a perfect home base for my family’s Spring Break hiking trip. Our family of two adults and two teens comfortably had enough personal space and communal areas. The house had everything we needed to make our trip special, including some lovely muffins waiting for us upon our arrival. We especially enjoyed the proximity to the beautiful hiking trails, the attractive decour of the house itself and most importantly, the easy communication with the owners. I would recommend the route house and plan to stay there again soon.

One of our favs

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a lot of places near Brevard and this was definitely one of our favorites. Location was unbeatable. Home was extremely clean and spacious. It was decorated in minimalist decor which I love, no clutter. We will be returning again and again. The hosts were awesome to deal with as well. Thanks!

Clean and well equipped! Much better than a hotel room!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was well pleased with our accommodations at The Route House. We had plenty of room to spread out and the kids loved the big yard. It is located near major points of interest as well as grocery stores and restaurants. The house was sparkling clean and beautifully furnished.

Loved The Route House

  • 5 of 5

The Route House, just a few miles outside of Brevard was centrally located for day trips of hiking the Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Forest, visiting local breweries and about 40 minutes from the fantastic Burnt Shirt Winery in Hendersonville. The house has been recently remodeled and pristine. The owner, Melissa did a wonderful job emailing us with clear directions and even helped with restaurant recommendations! She was an excellent host, and we look forward to staying at the Route House again!
