Secluded rustic mountain getaway

Sister cabin to Laurel Haven,(#174640) Chestnut Haven is also situated on 2.5 acres, very secluded and peaceful. Vaulted ceilings with 100 year old wormy chestnut wood, hefty hammer beams and a gas log fireplace with stones to the ceiling. We have a large beech tree securing the staircase with rustic mountain laurel twigs. The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances, dishes utensils, etc., and granite counter tops. Bedrooms are comfortable with cotton sheets, and soft quilts and comfortors. Thirsty cotton bath towels are in each bathroom. If we've forgotten anything, please let us know. Your comfort and enjoyment is our #1 priority.

About Phyllis Goff

Mark Goff, Owner, builder, contractor & owner of Goff Construction, built this cabin.

Phyllis Goff, owner, real estate broker, designed, decorated and manages this property.

We have been in the area almost 35 years, and are so thankful to live here and love sharing it with the many visitors we have had at Laurel Haven.

Phyllis Goff purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Phyllis Goff chose Brevard

The beauty. Nature surrounds and abounds. The peace. The proximity to so many activities. It is central to Dupont State Forest and Pisgah National Forests. Biltmore House is only 1 hour away.

What makes this cabin unique

We have tried to bring the outside inside. We have used many reclaimed objects, like the 100 year old wormy chestnut, the claw foot tub, antique sinks in both bathrooms. The laurel handrail and stone fireplace are great focal points in our cabin.

Amazing Craftsmanship and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four was absolutely delighted by our stay at Chestnut Cove! We were very impressed and felt at home the minute we walked in the door and appreciated the loveliness of the area and the cabin. The owners, Phyllis and Mark, have taken great pains to make the place special---and it shows! The cleanliness, decor and unique touches are impressive and thoughtful.

We enjoyed hiking at Pisgah and DuPont State Forest and touring shops and eating at restaurants in the Brevard area, but our favorite thing to do was to hang out, drink coffee and relax and reconnect on the beautiful back deck. The ping pong table in the basement was fun entertainment for us and our teens--who were willing to set aside their technology for hours of fun and competition.

Our Fall break trip to Brevard was very special and the beautiful new cabin really created the perfect atmosphere for us in the mountains. We liked how the cabin is a few minutes out of town providing just the right amount of rest and relaxation, while still being very accessible to all the amenities in the area.

We highly recommend this cabin and cannot wait to return. Thank you, Phyllis and Mark, for making such a wonderful, welcoming retreat available.

The cabin is very cozy and clean. The forest view from the back porch is so serene and beautiful. The location could not be more convenient to all that Brevard has to offer. We could not be more pleased with our stay!!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Chestnut Haven was so charming and cozy. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had everything we needed. The highlight for me was the huge covered porch to drink tea and relax. We will certainly be back and I highly recommend this home.

After turning onto Chestnut Cove, go straight until the pavement ends, go up steep hill. Chestnut Haven is the first house on the left after gravel road begins.

Chestnut Haven is located just 7 miles outside Brevard, NC, a small "Maberry like" town. Good food downtown, antique & gift shops. We are central to all the forests, state and national -- Gorges, Dupont, and Pisgah are all just a 20 minute drive from the cabin. Great hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails.
