About Susan or Dave Donaldson

Dave and I bought this cabin strictly for a get away. We retired and loved the area so much we ended up relocating here permanently. We built a home right next door to the cabin we now have for rent.

Susan or Dave Donaldson purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Susan or Dave Donaldson chose Asheville Area

We lived in New Orleans for 28 years and decided to find a small get a way from the summer heat, hurricane season and to view the fall foliage. We looked in North Carolina and decided on a subdivision which offers us a gated community for security especially when we were 600 miles away from the property.

What makes this cabin unique

You would not have to leave the area except for grocery shopping. We have hiking, waterfalls, fishing, swimming, clubhouse, golf course, tennis, pickleball, playground, small beach at one of the parks on the lake, boating, picnicking etc.

Excellent; will reserve again!

  • 5 of 5

I live locally and needed a place for my 86 year old mother who was visiting from Florida. The house is super cute and very clean, the back deck is incredible, and the owners are awesome! My mother was easily able to navigate the few steps up to the front of the house and felt very comfortable staying in the house by herself. With two bedrooms and spacious living and dining areas, it can certainly accommodate more people. My mother was also thrilled to see deer in the front yard. The neighborhood is gated, yet casual and friendly, with amazing amenities and surrounded by nature. The drive to the shops and restaurants in downtown Brevard is enjoyable and not too far. Also nearby is the Pisgah National Forest, and DuPont State Park is even closer and highly recommended. I will definitely reserve this house again for my my family and friends.

Quiet Cabin in the Trees

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for a relaxing get away. The cabin is in a gated community but feels like it is in a secluded forest. The sound of the leaves rustling in the wind was beautiful. The huge deck was a perfect place to drink my morning coffee and watch the deer or enjoy a glass of wine after a day of hiking. The cabin location is about 10 to 15 minutes to Brevard. The cabin was clean and stocked with all the staples you might need. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for me when I arrived! The cabin is cozy and the bed comfortable. Water pressure in the shower was wonderful. The owners were awesome to work with - I traveled up from Florida during hurricane Matthew and requested an early check in which they quickly responded that everything would be ready when I needed it and to just get there safely. I would definitely stay at this cabin again and recommend it heartily! My reasons for the stay were to hike the surrounding mountains and visit the beautiful waterfalls. I had a wonderful time!

Cabin @ Connestee

  • 5 of 5

This rustic, serene property is conveniently located in a well-developed (cafe, golf, tennis, fitness) gated community, with easy access to both the Dupont Forest and the Pisgah National Forest, as well as many fine dining options and a thriving art community nearby in Brevard, NC. The gated community also provides the visitors with an enhanced feeling of security. However, the home sites are quite spacious, so that there is no sensation of even having any neighbors.

Every amenity is provided and the hosts/owners are most attentive and very thoughtful. The home has a huge elevated deck for viewing wildlife and scenic sunrises and sunsets.

We had a wonderful visit and hated to have to leave this cabin for the urban grind!

Donaldson's Tree House

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at the Donaldon's cabin. The weather was delightful and we spent many hours sitting among the trees on the deck. The house is very cute and very clean. The kitchen has everything you could ask for. My only disappointment was that I was hoping for a more rustic experience, and that was not the Donaldson's fault.

Super Place for some Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is very quiet...about the only things one hears are the crickets and frogs. The large deck is very nice; and probably in the Fall, the view would be incredible because off all the deciduous trees.

The owner was very helpful and communication was prompt.

Would stay there again.
