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!

Jonathan, Hillary and Rachel

You cannot do better than a quaint downtown like Brevard.

It makes me long for retirement.

Why Jonathan chose Brevard


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.

Our family stayed in Jonathan's Downtown Brevard Cottage from 12/18 to 12/28/2017 while I was recovering from hip surgery done in Hendersonville. This "home away from home" was perfect for a holiday retreat for our family of four humans and two dogs. I was immediately impressed by the cleanliness of the home and the comfortable furnishings as shown in the pictures. My younger son does not usually like staying in vacation rentals, but found it to be very relaxing environment. The fenced in back yard is perfect for letting the dogs out early in the morning before being able to walk them properly. The infamous white squirrel of Brevard made his appearance daily in the back yard trees, or in the yard across the street. My sons enjoyed walking to down town and took in the new Star Wars movie at the downtown cinema. the shops down town are worth the trip. Jonathan was a great host, provided us with his cell phone number for contact, (though we did not need it outside of confirmation of our rental), and had a whole booklet of helpful information about the area that he sent to me prior to the reservation. We used Jonathan's "guide" to see a local waterfall we never would have seen if he had not given the directions, and it was close enough to parking that I could walk to it just days after my hip surgery! I should add that this home is very handicap friendly for someone who cannot manage stairs and obstacles. And don't forget the hot tub! My husband and sons took full advantage of it on several occasions, so it must have been good. Thank you, Jonathan, for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Pam, I am glad your recovery went well. You also must drink the same coffee as I do since the white squirrels showed themselves! Some guests don't drink our brand and then have to drive off somewhere to see them.....Thanks for the detailed review, Jonathan

Perfect House for Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town visting Brevard College for our oldest son. We brought our two other boys along to make it a family weekend getaway. From the moment we opened the door the house was perfect! Warm and inviting, clean and had eveything we needed including extra blankets. Beautifully decorated! The hot tub and fireplace were added treats. Great location to shop, wonderful restaurants and coffee shops, hike and get to know the town. Very clear the owner takes pride in the property so guests can enjoy. We will be back.

Very clean and remodeled cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to get this house after a winter storm changed our plans. The house was very central to our vacation activity plans and very close to various falls. The house was very clean and newly remodeled. We enjoyed Alexa and the hot tub. The listing was very accurate and the pictures are exact. I would recommend this property to anyone. If anything was bad, not having Netflix for one night due to a login mix up is all I'm going to say. thanks
