About Nan & Will Long
Peace Out! In the Fall of 2001, Nan packed up her two dogs Osmond and Zoe and headed to the mountain town of Brevard, North Carolina to seek sanctuary. Upon arrival she was amazed by the natural beauty of the area and it’s calming influences. Enchanted by the Land of Waterfalls the Pisgah National Forest and the friendliness of the local people she decided to make Brevard her home the following summer. Searching the area for the perfect property, located not too far from town but in the midst of the forest, she discovered Cantrell Mountain located near the DuPont State Forest. Wanting to share the natural beauty and love of dogs with others she bought the land on which she designed and built the cabins for DogWoods Retreat. Using responsible stewardship of the land and maintaining its natural beauty she has created the perfect private luxury dog & owner vacation. Please join us to peace out, venture out and find serenity in these wonderful mountains of North Carolina! Namaste, Nan, Will, Talia & Pearl History of DogWoods Retreat. Our search started by looking for that perfect piece of land on which to build DogWoods Retreat. We had quite a check list, not so easy to fulfill, in this land of Waterfalls. We wanted to be on a mountain (3000 feet altitude) and in the forest to enjoy warmer winter and cooler summer temperatures. A gentle south facing terrain to keep our porches on the sunny side in winter and shady in the summer and the ability to have our spacious fenced yards. Being close to town with easy major highway (276) access. After lots of looking we finally found that perfect spot! Now the plans…. Chalets with lots of decking and two level covered porches added 700 sq feet to enjoy the wonderful outdoors! 1400 square foot interiors with an upstairs large master bedroom and bath with granite counter tops and loft area. Main floor guest bedroom, bathroom, living room with wood-burning fireplace, dining room, kitchen with granite counter tops.

Family stay at dogwoods retreat
We stayed at Tree Frog with our three children and two dogs, tree frog was great and very accommodating for pets.
It was our first time ever taking the dogs with us and the dogs beds, fenced yard and other dog friendly accommodations made it very easy.
The kitchen is well stocked and the house was very clean. Nan and Wil were very accommodating with our schedule and gave us great suggestions on things to do with our kids.
We are glad you were happy with our Tree Frog cabin. Please come back again sometime.

You are centrally located to all of the wonderful sights of the mountains. The gateway to the Pisgah National Forest with its 157,000 acres of forest and its hundreds of miles of hiking trails lies just below. At the top of the Forest road lies the Blue Ridge Parkway with high altitudes of over 6400 feet and some of the most beautiful sights on the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. On the other side of you is the DuPont State Forest where The Hunger Games was filmed with 10,000 acres of trails and stunning waterfalls.
Within less than an hour lies the city of Asheville with its historic downtown and the Biltmore Estate in the opposite direction are the quaint towns of Hendersonville and Lake Lure. Head south and the road takes you over to Caesar's Head State Park in South Carolina. Yet another way will lead you to Lake Toxaway and further on to the towns of Highlands and Cashiers.
There are many great activities in the Brevard area such as world-class trout fishing, hiking, rock climbing, rafting, river tubing, horseback riding, zip lining and mountain biking. We are happy to point you in the right directions for activities that might suit you and suggest some of our favorite hikes. The Western Mountains of North Carolina are known for their hospitality so come and join us in the mountains for the ultimate vacation experience with your best friend!
