About Jamie and Buddy Tompkins

We fell in love with Brevard several years ago as we began to consider retirement. We visited several larger and smaller communities in Western North Carolina, but Brevard seemed like the perfect place for us. Its proximity to two airports and other larger cities like Hendersonville and Asheville provide all of the amenities we could ever need without experiencing the heavy traffic and congestion we lived with in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area of North Texas! When we bought the Blue Bungalow to live in while we built our home in Pisgah Forest, we knew it would be a place to share with others who might enjoy the convenience of in town living while being so close to the many beautiful forests and attractions WNC has to offer. The moderate climate and majestic views of the NC mountains are the gifts we appreciate every day. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Jamie and Buddy Tompkins purchased this bungalow in 2012

Great stay !

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Bungalow was a great find. Jamie was wonderful to deal with and willing to answer any questions we had during the process.

It usually takes us a couple of days to settle in and feel comfortable but that wasn't the case here, we settled in immediately.

Upon arrival we were greeted by a white squirrel ( we were wondering if we would see any) .

The house is very welcoming and had everything you need. It is located in a quite neighborhood and within walking distance to downtown.

The master bedroom is spacious and the bed is very comfortable.

There is a large fenced in backyard with fire pit...I have to admit we never used but maybe next time.

You can't go wrong by renting this home !

We will be back and a big thank you Jamie for being so helpful and for allowing us a nice place to stay and bring our furbaby.

While in this area, check out Pretty Place Chapel in Greenville, S.C. ( a scenic drive from Brevard) A breath taking view!

This was a great cottage so close to town. Jamie and Buddy have really thought of everything--lots of information on things to do in the area and anything you could ever need for your stay. I definitely appreciated all of the details. Thanks for a lovely stay!

All we needed within easy distance of downtown

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we needed for a quick weekend getaway in Brevard. Much more comfortable and with far more amenities than a hotel room, and within an easy walk or drive of the center of town. We enjoyed being able to come back to the Bungalow to rest throughout our long day in town. The owners have carefully thought of everything one might need, including lots of extra surprises throughout. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely book the Blue Bungalow again.

Great location, met our family and furbabies needs perfectly

  • 4 of 5

We were traveling to Brevard College for scholarship day, with our oldest son. This was the perfect location for us. It allowed my husband and our younger child to go shopping downtown and grab lunch while the older son and I went to scholarship day and made it easy in the afternoon to meet up before another meeting at school. The house is perfect size two very nice bedrooms two nice bathrooms all the things that you’ll need there except some groceries if you plan to cook but there’s plenty of restaurants very close by. Also our two furbabies went and they loved the backyard I absolutely loved the property and it was so nicely appointed for them as well. The owners are very receptive to answering any questions or needs that you may have and do a very nice job of having house perfectly ready for you when you arrive.... we will be back to the Blue Bungalow
