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

Very nice & comfortabe place that's assessable to all the downtown shops. They have thought of everything from a variety of movies & games to spices & other essentials in the kitchen. We can't wait to get back here for our next vacation in Brevard.

Little Blue Bungalow was GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived everything was in order. The minute my husband went to the kitchen he looked out the back window and saw a white squirrel running along the fence! Beautiful!

The bungalow was well stocked and clean. We only ate breakfast there but the kitchen was well stocked with appliances and utensils.

A great touch was the "Drink a bottle/Leave a bottle" wine rack. Perfect!

It is very well situated in Brevard and easy to get around from there. We walked to most places from there. Nice touch was the library one block over.

We would definitely come back to the Blue Bungalow.

Thank you for your hospitality!

Very very sweet!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Blue Bungalow! And our little dogs loved it! And it was a very safe place for them to chase squirrels. It is Zoe's lifelong ambition to someday, somehow, catch one. We sat on the covered porch and drank our coffee in the mornings while the girls "hunted", and drank our glass of wine in the evenings. It was our first time to visit Brevard and we enjoyed it very much. We loved The coffee shop on the campus and really enjoyed dinner at the Square Root. But the highlight of the trip was Mountain biking in DuPont State forest and the helpful sales force and the Hub bike shop. All in all, wonderful!!! We will be back to the Blue Bungalow !!!🤣�

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.
