Overview

About the property

Walk to restaurants, antique shops, pubs in downtown Brevard

Come and stay in our Downtown Brevard Cottage. Walk to great local restaurants such as the Marco Trattoria ( 5 minutes ) and Square Root ( 9 minutes ) and many others. Our cottage is a three bedroom, two bath home nicely located a block away from Main Street down a quiet side street in Brevard, NC, a college town nestled on the edge of Pisgah National Forest in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

Stroll the numerous antique and specialty stores along Main Street ( 1 block away ). Have breakfast at Rocky's Grill and Soda Shop ( 10 minute walk ), and afterwards, take the kids to OP Taylors on Main Street, a two story old fashioned toy shop packed to the rafters with fascinating things for children and adults alike.

After a day of strolling, soak up some warmth in the four person hot tub. Watch movies on our netflix enabled smart TV, or cast your favorite youtube videos to the TV with your laptop when hanging around at the cottage. To see the latest movies, mozy on over to the 'Co-ed Cinema' on Main street by foot, just a 7 minute walk.

If it's time for a drink, Dugan's pub is a 13 minute walk (Square Root has a bar too!), and if you want to keep going in that direction, Brevard College is just across the street from the pub.

You will love our brevard cottage, not just for it's convenient location in quaint downtown Brevard, but for it's comfort and amenities too.

If you are bored, just ask Alexa to read you the latest news! Alexa, do I look good today? If you must talk to the NSA through Alexa, do it while you are there, don't let the black helicopters arrive right after you leave.....

The cottage sleeps six with our king, queen and two single beds. On winter evenings, relax by the gas log fire, and when not walking the neighborhood, the cottage is close to the natural scenic wonders of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is located in Transylvania County, known as the land of the waterfalls.

Asheville's Airport is only 19 miles away, not bad when you need to get rid of a relative fast!

You can be driving on scenic HWY 276 through Pisgah National Forest in just nine minutes, following the Davidson river (great for tubing) on the way to the Blue Ridge Parkway......Stop at Sliding Rock as you pass by for some fun in the water on a warm summer day. Visit the Pisgah Inn for lunch and marvel at the views from the restaurant.

Later, drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway towards Asheville and stop at the Biltmore House to see how we should be living....you know, some design ideas for your own place....perhaps add a new wing to the abode? Gothic anyone?

The cottage has a king size bed and an ensuite master bathroom, one queen and two single beds. For longer stays, the washer and dryer will come in handy. If you are the out-doorsy type, sip a glass of wine and have a cookout on the gas grill on the private back deck while enjoying the cool summers and mild winters this part of the North Carolina mountains offer.

If you need a break from cooking up a storm in the well equipped, gourmet cottage kitchen, and just want to order a hand made pizza from a wood burning oven, Marco Trattoria an Italian restaurant is only a five minute walk, ( 1 min by car ) one block away on Main street, next to Hobnob. If you or the kids have a sweet tooth, there are at least two iced-cream shops nearby, one 'Downtown Chocolates' is next to the Square Root.

You can walk to several grocery stores that are close by, but four minutes in the car to Ingles, and you can avoid lugging that delicious sliced ham home.

The weekly farmers market every Saturday in summer is a must do destination for the serious cultural browser, located just off East Main Street, near Quotations Coffee Cafe, a 12 minute walk ...... past the court house. Bring your dog so he or she can meet all the other dogs who brought their owners to be market! If you are not there on a Saturday, the region boasts a huge farmers market where every chef worth their salt will be found. This is Asheville's WNC Farmers Market, and is detailed in our cottage handbook for visitors which you receive with your access instructions when you have booked.

If horse riding and waterfalls is your thing, visit Shoal Creek Horse Farm for a guided ride through the Dupont State Forest (23 minutes away) on a friendly horse...I rode Joker, my nine year old daughter rode Duke (say hi for us) winter or summer.....check the handbook for contact details. You can visit some of the spectacular waterfalls such as Bridal Veil Falls, High Falls, Hooker Falls and Triple Falls to name a few while in Dupont State Forest.....a truly spectacular natural resource.

Speaking of quaint little towns, downtown Asheville is only 46 minutes away, and is a wonderful place to visit. There is a phenomenal Antique Tobacco Barn there too that is worth exploring. As you look around our brevard cottage, you will see a few items from the Antique Tobacco barn.

With five national and state parks nearby, there is an endless potential for sightseeing, hiking, day tripping, biking and watersports such as tubing, white water rafting and fishing in the surrounding area.

The area also boasts a vibrant music scene, and know that the cottage is located near the road to the Brevard Music Center.

Every surface in our Brevard Cottage is new and state of the art from the seamless shower enclosures to the gourmet kitchen and natural gas fireplace.

There is truly something for everyone in Brevard, and we hope you come and stay in our downtown cottage!

About Jonathan

Hi, I am Jonathan

I am a suburbanite, and have always wanted to have a home within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, groceries etc.

You cannot do better than a quaint downtown like Brevard.

It makes me long for retirement.

Share our downtown cottage with us,

Why Jonathan chose Asheville Area

Downtown!

What makes this cottage unique

Walk everywhere! I am amazed at how many restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, chocolatiers and shops there are......

Jamie's restaurant on main street is highly recommended, and I have also enjoyed eating at the Hobnob, the Square Root, Falls Landing, Dugans Pub, El Ranchiero, Big Mikes and Quotations!

Quotations is a great internet cafe serving light lunches, coffee at all times and other delightful snacks.

There are many many others! Come and experience them for yourself...

Cozy Home in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this perfectly located cozy home. We were able to walk into downtown Brevard and enjoy the quaint shops, great food, and hospitable people. The home was clean and beautifully decorated with new modern furnishings. We look forward to possibly staying here again in the future.

Thank you.

Wonderful property, great location, friendly helpful,owner.

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this property. The house is very clean and everything is in good working order. It is as they say "move in ready". Jonathan the landlord is friendly and very helpful with his suggestions as to where to go for fun ,recreation, sightseeing, eating, etc. On the coffee table is a booklet about the property and the area ,read it as it is full of ideas and maps to fill your days with great things to do. The town of Brevard is wonderful. The people are friendly. There are many nice shops and restaurants. Within a 40 minute drive are several other nice towns. Our favorites were Hendersonville , and Asheville. My group flew in and out of Ashville and the drive to and from the airport was an easy 35 minutes. Near the airport is the Sierra Nevada Brewery. This is a beautiful attraction. Try to book a tour well in advance.

It sounds crazy but one of our fun days was going on a white squirrel hunt. It took us 2 fun filled hours. We have great pictures of these unique creatures which are only found around Brevard. Many of the shops in town are named after the white squirrel.

Other sites to see include Looking Glass Falls (a 15 -20 minute drive) the town of Black Mountain (a 40-45 minute drive) , Pisgah State Park ( 50 minutes to one of the most beautiful scenic overlooks you will ever see.

Each day ended with our group falling asleep in the most comfortable of beds. We look forward to visiting the cottage again.

Owner's Response: Michael, good to have you back a second time! If you sit outside with regular coffee in the morning at 7.03 am exactly, (has to be regular coffee not decaf, no more than three minutes since brewed, Dunkin Donuts brand only) you may see the elusive white squirrel right from the back deck of the cottage. You must have had the wrong brand of coffee or time etc..... hence your need to go and seek out white squirrels! Next time!

We stayed there for a couple of days and enjoyed this very well taken care of cottage.

It's conveniently located within the walking distance to the Brevard center close to shopping and dining. Detailed Guide to the nearest attractions was very helpful. Highly recommend !

Owner's Response: Marek, great that your experience was good. I am always adding to the Cottage Handbook as guests tell me of new sights to see and as I find them myself. The online version is sometimes slightly ahead of the book version. Happy you found our cottage convenient and well taken care of. Jonathan

We really enjoyed this place- the layout is great for a family. The living room/kitchen was very large and spacious for us all. We love the hot tub. The town is so cute and close by.
