About Tim & Corey Gafnea

After vacationing with our family in Brevard for several years, Tim & I decided to make the move from Atlanta to Brevard and we originally moved into this home before buying our dream house 1 mile away on Maple Street. We decided to keep our 'Carolina Cottage' and so we renovated the kitchen and updated the bathrooms.

We feel incredibly blessed to call this lovely community home. Our hope is that you enjoy it as much as we do. We want to do everything we can to make your visit as pleasant as possible. If there is anything special you would like for us to have ready for you, just ask!

Tim & Corey Gafnea purchased this house in 2013

Why Tim & Corey Gafnea chose Asheville Area

We hope you have a great time relaxing and exploring Brevard, the waterfalls, and all the outdoor activities in the mountains. Whether it's music, food, hiking, biking, birding, fishing or just waiting to spot the abundant white squirrels we hope you enjoy your stay at the Carolina Cottage.

What makes this house unique

This house is very cozy and convenient to downtown Brevard (.7 miles)

Kitchen was renovated in Feb 2015.

Good secure storage for bikes on the front porch!

We live in town and are available to answer any questions - provide you with an insiders view to all that Brevard and the surrounding area offers.

Nice backyard for kids to play in.

Bungalow was great!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great Memorial Day Weekend at the Bungalow. The back porch was nice to stash our mountain bikes at night. Easy access to Pisgah Forest and DuPont. Bracken Preserve is very close to the house, which was incredible! Fire pit is a great addition and they even had dry fire wood. No issues or complaints with the house, would definitely stay here again! Thanks Tim & Corey.

Best Christmas ever!

  • 5 of 5

I'm only 2 days into this place, and I can't express how amazing these hosts are!! I am not going to mention all that they do, because that will ruin the surprise. Corey and Tim are excellent hosts, and they have made this place a home away from home for me. The house is in wonderful condition, the beds are super comfortable, and the location is ideal for biking. Thank you for such an amazing experience!! Merry Christmas!

Great place to stay in Brevard

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this house twice now with four adults and two small children and it was very nice both times. The bedrooms are comfortable and quiet. Both the den and the kitchen are great gathering places. The house is conveniently located to downtown and as with any house in Brevard it is a short drive to the forest. It is a great place to stay if you want to spend the day in the woods but have a comfortable place to sleep at night.
