About Don & Kathie Briola

Don & Kathie have been married 26 years. We fell in love with the area immediately and after vacationing here for 13 years we decided to retire here. We moved in the summer of 2013 from Savannah,Ga with our two cats and our dream realized.

Don & Kathie Briola purchased this house in 2013

Why Don & Kathie Briola chose Asheville Area

We bought this property for the mountain view and quiet, serene location. It is for us an ideal mountain retreat, with the Smokies as a backdrop. The remote location is still within minutes of supplies and recreational activities for all ages. We also like the close proximity to Line Runner Lake.

What makes this house unique

When we purchased the property the basement was unfinished. It is now a cozy area for entertainment, reading, and playing games. There is a bedroom & bath in the basement.

The front porch swing and sitting area is a great place to have your morning coffee and look at the mountains.

The master bedroom also has a view of the mountains, so why not have breakfast in bed!

My husband and I stayed three nights at Serenity and it was the perfect location for our mountain getaway, beginning with the lovely fragrance of the home that greeted us when we entered. The owners' attention to details made us feel like special guests. The cabin is "homey" yet beautifully decorated, both spacious and immaculately clean, and boasts a mountain view that makes coffee on the front porch something you don't want to miss. The road to the cabin was easily accessible and directions were spot on. We found the location to be perfect. It was away from the "touristy" areas, yet a short drive to Pisgah National Forest where we hiked mountain trails and saw waterfalls; the Blue Ridge Parkway where we viewed magnificent mountain sunsets; and Asheville, Highlands and Cashiers. There is a fire pit for roasting smores, a grill on the back patio, and the night skies while we were there were filled with more stars than I had seen in ages, so we took our chairs and sat on the front lawn with a symphony of crickets and frogs to keep us company. The kitchen is well-equipped and it was nice to have WiFi and cable to keep us connected. I am picky about vacation rentals and considered 35 or so before settling on Serenity, and if I had it to do all over, I would make the same selection. Making reservations and securing our deposit were seamless.

Serenity is right

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay for a family vacation. The views are spectacular, access to the lake made for some very special moments. The house was very nice, well kept, well appointed, very comfortable. The owners treated us very well. We used the grill several time. More stuff in the pantry than we expected. We will definitely come back here.

The Name says it All

  • 5 of 5

On the top of the hill with views to the mountains, serenity takes you away, back to a slower pace of living, trout streams to fish in, waterfalls to walk to. The cabin is beautifully maintained, and is really too nice to be called a cabin. The hosts provide everything you could possibly need. Just when you think of something that you have forgotten, look around and you'll probably find it tucked away in a drawer.

All in all, a lovely place to stay.

Serenity - what a treat!

  • 5 of 5

First of all - this home is far nicer than the pictures indicate. Super clean and has everything you need! Super quiet and peaceful neighborhood in/near Rosman - a quaint little mountain town with easy access to Brevard, Pisgah, Dupont and Gorges State park. We enjoyed hiking around the neighborhood and lake almost as much as checking out the waterfalls nearby! Serenity is a peaceful, private, setting where you feel like you're at one with nature, yet have all the modern comforts of a nice, well kept home.

The owners were helpful, informative and made the experience seamless.

Be sure to check out Rainbow Falls in Gorges State park. This hidden gem is a well kept secret compared to the more frequented Pisgah.

Serenity is a great VRBO property and I'd definitely stay there again!

Located just minutes from Brevard, Serenity is located near Rosman NC. It is within 35 minutes of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The French Broad river is nearby and an outfitter is near Rosman where canoe and kayak trips/rentals are available. The town of Brevard is 25 minutes away and offers shopping and fine dinning opportunities. The towns of Cashiers,Highlands, and Franklin are also great day trips for shopping as well as many hiking and waterfall stops along the way. (A hike around Whiteside mountain is a must). This is Transylvania county and is known as land of the waterfalls. (There is a magnificent waterfall within 10 minutes of Serenity.

The cabin itself sits on top of a hill at about 2800 feet with a mountain view. As it is 2.7 miles from the nearest highway it is calm and serene. Enjoy mornings or evenings sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Come in the fall to enjoy the changing of the leaves. Take a short walk from tha cabin and see Line Runner Lake. We hope that you enjoy Serenity as much as we do!
