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 Brevard

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.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we found the cabin online,to working with the owners, to checking in and then relaxing, things could not have gone more smoothly! We loved the cabin, its beautiful and secluded location but close location to great amnenities. The cabin was cozy, nicely decorated and well stocked. And the view-awesome! We can't say enough about the entire long weekend rental experience. We truly hope to come back some day! Thank you for being so pleasant to work with!

Cabin was very cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were visiting family members in the area and were so happy that the Donaldsons had their lovely cabin available for our stay. We felt at home immediately and were surprised to find some goodies and a personalized note waiting for us on the counter! The bed was cozy and we slept as well as we do at home. We love the area and were so happy that we were able to stay in Connestee Falls. We will definitely be staying at the Cabin in the mountains again if there is availability. Thanks for the hospitality!

Relaxing Retreat So Appreciated!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin in the Mountains provided the perfect place for us to relax and reinvigorate after the busyness of the holidays! The entire experience from reservation to check out was pleasant and personable. Susan and Dave go out of their way to make sure everything is welcoming and warm for their guests. The seasonal decor, cozy chairs, supplied books, games, and CD's, and fresh flowers all made this seem like a visit to a friend's home. I appreciated the well-equipped kitchen which allowed me to make most of our meals without having to improvise as I have had to do in other VRBO houses. Everything was comfortable, clean, and enjoyable. This was honestly the best experience we have ever had with a rental and we all agree that we want to return over and over again. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience! Oh, and thanks for making sure our boys got to see a little snow. :)

Wonderful experience ~ again!

  • 5 of 5

I've rented the cabin two years in a row for my mother visiting from Florida, and both times have been perfect. The cabin is very clean and comfortable, and nicely furnished with everything you need. The living area is spacious, and there's a great deck across the back of the living space and master bedroom. The owners are amazing; they even had flowers, wine and delicious holiday goodies waiting for my mother. The setting is quiet and peaceful, and only a short drive or nice walk to the communities' main amenities. I live full time in the community and love it here! There are so many places for a nice walk, including a nice walk near the cabin to two of our lakes. We also have hiking trails within the community. It's a gated community away from the hustle and bustle and I always feel safe here. The town of Brevard is a short drive up the road and has a charming downtown with shops and restaurants. DuPont State Forest is a short drive down the road with numerous waterfalls, and trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

I highly recommend visiting the area and staying in this cabin!!!

Outstanding place with all the comforts of home and more...

  • 5 of 5

Amazing small house, spotless, included everything we needed, and more. Terrific views, central to Connestee Clubhouse. Hosts were incredibly helpful, gracious, and available (live next door). Finished with a designer's touch, not your usual rental. There were flowers, wine, fire in fireplace, and music playing awaiting our arrival! Best of any rental we have ever had - and we will return... We usually travel with our own sheets and towels as most rentals have older worn out things, but we didn't need them this time - great bedding, fluffy towels. Much more like a B&B, not a rustic cabin!
