About Meg Buchanan

I was born and raised in this beautiful, small town, and have been proud to call Brevard home. This home was built by my grandfather, and we have called it home for over 10 years. My husband and I are both teachers. We have 3 active, busy children. We have recently relocated to a neighboring county.

Meg Buchanan purchased this cottage in 1971

Why Meg Buchanan chose Brevard

You will be hardpressed to find a more naturally beautiful area than western North Carolina. We enjoy fishing area rivers, the locally owned shops and restaurants, and the small town atmosphere here.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a perfect home for large gatherings of any kind but is especially kid-friendly.

Spacious and well equipped home

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed home was perfect for our group of eight adults. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spaced out so that everyone felt they had complete privacy. The convenient location so close to downtown Brevard made shopping and eating out so easy. We cooked several meals there and every cooking utensil or appliance you could imagine was provided.

The large back deck was our favorite gathering spot where we saw a legendary white squirrel each morning running through the pasture.

The owner responding very quickly each time I wrote to ask a question. I would definitely recommend this lovely home to any group for a quiet get away. It would also be an amazing spot for families with kids as there is a large back yard with a basketball court and a full basement with fun trucks, trains and games to play. We had a memorable weekend.

Great home close to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with some other family members stayed at this home over the weekend for us to attend a wedding reception in Brevard. This house was just perfect. We had plenty of room, it is well laid out and a nice deck outback to enjoy the weather. Everything we needed was there and we couldn't have been any more pleased. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a larger home close to downtown.

Wonderful property! very comfortable, super close to downtown, just what we expected!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I planned our annual vacation and were looking for a home near downtown Brevard and also close enough to the Dupont and Pisgha forests since we really like mountain biking and hiking. This house had it all! not only was it close to the locations we wanted, but it was very spacious and comfortable! There was a large room for kids to play with tons of toys, a beautiful backyard, a very nicely renovated kitchen and very comfortable rooms. We loved every aspect of it! Also the fact that it had tons of information readily available and entrance and exit to the home was real easy.

The home was very clean and had everything we needed! We felt very welcomed and the kids loved it! they actually didn't want to leave! so that says a lot about a home that is right what you are looking for.

We would definitely recommend this home to anyone interested in visiting Brevard, especially with large groups and even more with kids!

This home was perfect for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We came to the Brevard area for the wedding of our son. Our family found this home to be perfect and the owners were extremely accommodating. The house was even better in person than the pictures indicated. There was plenty of room for our party of 12. The kitchen was awesome and the covered back veranda was spacious and the view out the back was so peaceful and relaxing.
