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 Brevard

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!

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!

Pictures don't do it justice!!

  • 5 of 5

From the very moment you turn off the main road and head up the gravel road you can tell this is a special place. We saw a large buck and several turkeys even before we made it to Serenity's drive. The climb up the drive leaves keeps the anticipation building and once you round the bend you are greeted with a remarkable view. The house on the left and the mountains to the right!! The wooden rocking chairs and swing on the front porch are nice touch and with the mountain view they definitely got plenty of use. The inside was remarkable and decorated very nicely. There was more than enough sleeping space for our family of 6. The brochures on things to do were nice and covered everything either rain or shine. Would love to see the view in the fall. We had a great experience and will definitely consider staying here again in the future!!

Perfect for a Family of 4 during 3 nights. Fire pit is great. We love Brevard (25 minutes away) and hikes.

Amazing view and great location for exploring the area.

  • 5 of 5

I had such an amazing time at the cottage. It was quiet and restful. The house is charming and had everything I needed. The long range view of the Blue Ridge was incredible. I found that this location is just right for accessing visits to the Brevard area as well as Sapphire and Cashiers. Kathie and Don were very helpful and great hosts! I hope to make it back to Serenity again!

Exceeded expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Serenity for a long weekend away from it all. We absolutely fell in love with the location and how it's tucked away peacefully. The air was crisp, the grounds are clean and well kept with a stunning view. We spent most of our time outside, had a camp fire at night, and enjoyed the nearby lake at sunset and sunrise. Serenity is truly a home away from home with everything you need to cook and get cozy at night. Don and Kathie are full of kindness and care. They were available at any time to answer any questions we had. We cannot wait to come back and visit... this time bringing more family to enjoy this litttle piece of heaven!!!
