Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Brevard - Downtown Cottage, Brevard

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 Hobnob, Marco Trattoria ( 5 minutes ) and Square Root ( 9 minutes ). 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.

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.

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

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,

Jonathan, Hillary and Rachel

Do consider my mountain cabin near Brevard for a different experience:

Why Jonathan chose Asheville Area


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...

Perfect getaway with the family!

  • 5 of 5

Staying in the cottage was perfect. It offered plenty of space for our family of 5. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. There is a back patio and grill to enjoy the quiet location. You can walk to town within 5 minutes. Once there you will enjoy many small town shops and excellent dining. Be sure to walk down and get some delicious gelato. When you are ready to explore waterfalls, there are so many within a 15 minutes drive. Be sure to take a towel and a change of clothes as it is impossible not to get wet. The waterfalls are so inviting!!! We can't wait to return and enjoy another family vacation or maybe we'll even leave the kids behind one time.

We stayed at the Downtown Brevard Cottage for a long weekend. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but once you walk inside you can see the owner has down a fantastic job updating the house and turning it into a modern structure. We really appreciated having a grill with a gas line (so many times have rented houses with grills and have spent $20 to fill a propane tank). We walked into town a few times to do a little shopping and frequent some of the Brevard restaurants, it was an easy walk. For those attending the music festival, the festival grounds is just down the road...one night we even heard some of the music as we sat in the backyard. My only regret is I sat outside a lot with the hope to see the famous Brevard white squirrel. I saw one brown/grey one but not a white one, oh well, maybe next time.

Owner's Response: Erin, thanks for visiting with us. I have heard of others seeing a white squirrel from the cottage, and I have too, so I guess it is timing that counts. Probart street seems to be more populated with them. Jonathan
