My wife and I spent a lovely weekend at the Deerwoode Resort just outside of Brevard. We stayed in the River Cabin which was absolutely charming. It's right on the river with a beautiful view and couldn't be more quiet and peaceful. The cabin is small but perfect for a couple. In addition to the bedroom and bathroom inside, it has a lovely back porch overlooking the river. There is also a fire pit alongside the river, and the owner keeps dry firewood on hand so that you can make a campfire if you'd like. My wife and I enjoyed a glass of wine by the fire while listening to the coyotes sing in the distance! It was absolutely lovely.
The 175 acre property is beautiful with great hiking opportunities both on the property and beyond. Plus it's a quick, easy drive into town where there are no shortage of nice restaurants, coffee shops, and stores.
Highly recommended for a long weekend getaway!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Historic Deerwoode, 175 acres of green, sustainable, peaceful serenity and wildlife preserve along the banks of The French Broad River, one of the oldest rivers in the world. Once a summer camp built in 1923 and closed in 1991, Deerwoode has matured into a quiet retreat for adults only. Preserving the vintage, old hardwood structures, many unique old stone fireplaces, and all with lake, river and mountain views, makes Deerwoode a must stop when visiting WNC. Deerwoode is truly one of the most ecological and pretty places in North Carolina, and only two miles from downtown Brevard. ... more less
