This comfortable home has two bedrooms, two full baths, a fireplace inside and fire-pit outside.

White squirrels are regular visitors sharing several bird-feeders for your viewing pleasure. Other features include two flat screen TVs, cable, WIFI, washer/dryer, central heat and air, BBQ grill and bike rack. Check out the wine rack for a Take One/Leave One experience!

Brevard is a perfect home base and only a short drive to Asheville and the Biltmore Estate, Pisgah National Forest, DuPont State Forest, and other attractions like the Blue Ridge Parkway, NC Arboretum, NC Nature Center, the Carl Sandburg home and the professional, NC State Theater known as Flat Rock Playhouse.

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 location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time in Brevard very much. Thank you Jamie & Buddy Tompkins for being so accommodating with us and our check out time as well as our girls (dogs) that travel with us. The house was in the perfect location for our needs and very close to everything. The fenced in yard was great (there was a crazy!!! thunderstorm and torrential rain that came through and the back yard was a mud pit our first day there but thankfully the leaves that had fallen helped soak some of it up so they didn't make such a mess!). Again, thank you for being so great and accommodating and this cute house was perfect for our needs! We would rent again when we come to the area.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had another great stay at Blue Bungalow. Jamie was able to accomodate us on short notice during a family illness. We love the convenient location near downtown and appreciate it being dog-friendly. Everything is kept in top condition and very clean. I enjoyed walking my dog in the quiet neighborhood as well as in downtown Brevard.

Cozy, clean, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Sorry to be so delayed in reviewing, but this property was perfect for our needs. It is very nicely decorated, and has just about everything you would want at home, something you would reach for at home to use, is here too. I had one minor issue and Buddy came right away to take care of it. The bed is very comfy by the way. My dogs like having the run of the yard, though we were there three weeks, the weeds were trying to take over a bit in the back. Very enjoyable stay.

Cute, walkable spot

  • 4 of 5

Location - Great. In downtown, you don't get the mtn. views but you get to stroll to coffee shops, restaurants, bars, arts district, movie house.

Owners - Nice and prompt.

Property - Very cute exterior with fun color. Super fenced outdoor space that's good for kids, pets, private firepit time. Equipped for bikes. Interior is a little more like Grandma's house w. Victorian LR furniture, doll & doilies. Clean but different style than exterior. AC worked great. Towels were nice, clean and fluffy. Bird feeder stocked and patronized by fattest birds I've ever seen.

Fun spot.

A terrific home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a delightful stay in the blue bungalow. We loved the attention to thoughtful details in the house and grounds and the location is great. We walked to restaurants and the library and the bakery, etc. We would definitely like to stay there again.

Beautiful Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place. The bungalow was well-maintained, both inside and out. Jamie and Buddy, the owners, were extremely helpful and responded quickly to any concerns we had, which were minimal. There was a burned out light bulb, a broken bird feeder (we think the squirrels knocked it down) and recycling that didn't get collected. In each of these cases, Jamie and Buddy responded immediately to our email or phone call. I'm sorry I missed meeting them to tell them, in person, how great the place was. The master bathroom and closet were huge. Lots of space to hang our clothes and store our luggage. The second bedroom and bathroom were just right for our weekend guests. The covered deck was so comfortable and inviting. We spent most of our evenings out there, after coming home from a great dinner in town. The location was great, so that the dinners I just mentioned, were within walking distance. Our favorite places were Falls Landing, Wine Down, and Mayberry's. Those were our go-to places for lunch and dinner. We also found a great breakfast spot called Creekside Subs. This is a drive-to location, but just a few blocks from downtown. A new place in the new "arts district", called Magpie, had fantastic barbeque. Besides eating (that's not all we did), we spent our time fishing, hiking to waterfalls, and driving on the Blue Ridge parkway. Everything around the area was beautiful. We will definitely stay at the Bungalow, if we vacation in Brevard again.
