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 Asheville Area

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.

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Convenient, downtown Brevard home with room for everyone!
average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

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.

Charming, updated house in central location

  • 5 of 5

This house is very nicely updated and well-maintained. We had three children and three adults in our group, and the house had ample space and a perfect layout. Our boys loved that they could all sleep upstairs together in the room with the bunk beds, and also enjoyed retreating to themselves down to the playroom. The location is in close proximity to Main Street (an easy bike ride or walk) and to other area attractions. We spent time in both Pisgah and Dupont, which were short 10-15 minute drives away depending on traffic. It also is easy to get on to the Greenway from this location. Meg was extremely responsive throughout our stay. We would absolutely recommend the property to friends and relatives, and will hopefully be coming back ourselves.

We stayed here with all our kids and grandkids. Our group included five kids four and under. We were all so delighted to go down stairs and find the most wonderful play room I have ever seen. As you get to the bottom of the stairs some of the first things you see are numerous huge trucks and a table with a large train set. There were tons of toys and even a large basket ball hoop that is part of a table with a net. It is actually two rooms of toys with furniture in one. Outside is an extremely large green yard. The kids can run and play with many outside toys.

The inside of the house is very nice with quality appliances and reallly nice bathrooms. We enjoyed the roomy back porch that overlooked the huge green yard. The king bed in the master was very comfortable and had beautiful linen. I really could not imagine a better place to stay. We had a wonderful time there.

Meg and her husband are very nice too.

Spacious, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is great for any area activity, even walking distance to downtown Brevard. The living room and kitchen are large enough for gathering. The weather was nice enough to enjoy the large back deck. The owner was able to accommodate our group even on short notice.

Excellent space, simple process!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great space! We used this VRBO as a church men's retreat. Plenty of sleeping room, great central gathering area, and a kitchen the men could gravitate around all weekend.

We headed over to Oskar Blues on Saturday for cornhole, burgers, and beer. Convenient to everything.

The owners also made entrance and clean-up really simple. A++ for a great rental. Thank you!!!
