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

Weekend Get-a- Away with Pets
Thank you Will and Nan for the opportunity to stay at your cabin, everything was perfect! You both went out of the way to make sure we were taken care of and comfortable despite our incident with our SUV. The cabin was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The extra dog bowls, sheets to cover furniture and dog beds were a special added touch. I enjoyed most having the convenience of a fenced in backyard that allowed the pups to experience "the woods" unleashed. We look forward to coming back again. Many Thanks - Brad & Susan ....Woof, Woof - Sadie, Bailey & Zoey

This is one of the best properties where we have stayed. It especially great for dogs.
The location is wonderfully secluded. The property is exceptionally well maintained. The yard and decks are great for relaxing and safe to let your dogs run loose without concerns.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found the cabin to be to your liking. We look forward to seeing you again.

Best place to stay in Brevard especially if you have dogs!! We have stayed here more than once and have never been disappointed. It is exceptionally clean and the owners make the rental process so easy. We will definitely be back in the future.
This cabin was fantastic!
We had a really lovely time at the Firefly cabin. The location is great ... secluded but a quick drive to hiking, waterfalls and to enjoy Brevard. The property was really beautiful and the cabin is really nicely appointed. And, even though it is pet friendly (which our dog loved) it is spotless and well maintained. It does not give any signs of wear and tear that people stay with dogs. We would absolutely return and stay at this property again.
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!
