Deerwoode is a classic. An old school camp from the 1920s that has been renovated (ever so gently) to accommodate couples and/or families. We stayed in the Coyote Lodge. The room was large and clean, rustic and quiet. And the Lodge itself is great. Large with wood paneled floors, walls, ceiling, a great stone fireplace, rocking chairs, and plenty of room for a family or corporate gathering. A refrigerator provided perfect "room service." Matt the owner was very accommodating. The grounds have nice walking trails and the goats, chickens, ducks, and donkeys are a joy. Finally, you are five minutes from downtown Brevard and 15 from Pisgah.
- 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
