This charming apartment is nestled in the woods with a prime view of your very own private 15 foot waterfall in the backyard. Enjoy peace and tranquility while reading a book on the hammock resting over the creek or warm up by the chiminea while watching the fireflies scatter about the woods.

The creek is about 3 feet deep right at the bottom of the waterfall and makes for a refreshing spot to wade away the day. The property is surrounded by State Forest and there are no visible neighbors.

The space
This secluded waterfall getaway, perched just above Lake Jocassee and the Gorges State Park, is located between the quaint towns of Brevard and Lake Toxaway. Asheville is just under an hour from the property and the airport is within 45 minutes. Transylvania County, the Land of the Waterfalls, has numerous attractions within driving distance. So whether your looking to get away from the craziness of life or want to indulge in your favorite outdoor hobby, we have the place for you.
If your looking to get out and enjoy a hike or a bike ride, there are several options within driving distance. We are located 22 miles from the opening of Pisgah Forest, 29 miles from several accesses in Dupont Forest and a short 5 miles from the Frozen Creek Access of Gorges State Park. There are also a few short, easy hiking trails in the neighborhood and a pond that can be used for recreational fishing.
There are several local breweries and restaurants located in Brevard if you are in search of a good brew or a meal to end your day. Two bakeries and several antique shops and art galleries fill the small Brevard Downtown area. Amazing food trucks are also spread throughout the area.
If seclusion is your goal, enjoy the solitude of relaxing by the fire overlooking the 15 foot waterfall on the property or sunning on the large back porch. Nature is a plenty on this property, ranging from birds to the occasional bear sighting. The neighborhood is spacious with only 40 homes in over 1200 acres of wilderness.
The apartment is the bottom floor of the main house and there are no shared quarters. It is furnished with a cottage vibe but still has the necessary technology for you to keep in touch if you need to. Wi-fi and Cable are provided (however, you are in the middle of nowhere so weather can affect their reliability). It’s perfectly suited for 4 adults with a queen bed and two double couch beds. However, with small adults and older kids you can comfortably fit 6-7. Our max occupancy is 8 people.
Once you walk in the red front door, you will find a kitchen table for four, a desk to get any business done, a sleeper couch and a reclining chair. There is no thermostat in the downstairs area but if you need the temperature changed just let me know and I will make any reasonable accommodations (range from 68 degrees to 74 degrees).
The kitchen is fully stocked with tableware and things you may need for cooking. An air fryer and a grill are also available for your convenience. There is a limited supply of coffee, tea, minimal condiments, and other miscellaneous kitchen supplies. Keep in mind the nearest grocery store is a ways away so you may want to stock up before you get there.
The bedroom boasts a medium mattress queen bed and entry into the bathroom where you will find ample supply of towels and washcloths. Please be sure to bring your own bathroom essentials (shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, extra toilet paper).
During your stay you can expect to enjoy the backyard and waterfall all to yourself. However, if you need something, I am a phone call (if im not home) or a knock on the door away.

** You are in nature. There’s bugs, bees, snakes and even the occasional bear sighting. We obviously can’t control what you encounter outside. Just steer clear and enjoy watching from afar.

** There is a chiminea off the lower porch. You can find wood at the gas stations nearby. Please dont leave the fire unattended. This is the only place a fire is allowed.

** There are 5 Ring Cameras placed on the property in plain sight. All cameras are located OUTSIDE of the home.

**The fireplace in the living room does not work.

**We allow one DOG. If you have a request for more than one dog, let us know and we will consider it. We charge an automatic $250 fee for unauthorized pets.

**We do allow children as long as they are supervised the entire time during your stay.

Where you’ll be

Brevard, North Carolina, United States

This neighborhood gives you the chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life but still keeps you connected. Wi-fi and cable available. An endless forest also awaits. Hiking trails in the neighborhood and biking trails are around the corner.

We do receive the occasional snow. In the two years I have lived here it has snowed less than 5 times but if it is a decent accumulation, it may be difficult to gain access/get out.

Originally from Green Bay WI and most recently from Charleston SC. I moved to Brevard NC three years ago and purchased my dream home. It’s a beautiful area with a lot of outdoor activities.

During your stay

I do reside in the upper portion of the residence. There are no shared quarters. The apartment rental is downstairs and completely separated.

I will not bother you during your stay, as some guests want seclusion, but if you need something, just ask.
