This was our second stay on this property for many reasons...beautiful views, comfortable accommodations, gracious hostess, centrally located for all our exploits, reasonable rates, and the list goes on. We are looking forward to our 3rd stay at this Private Equestrian Estate.

“Just what we needed!”

In our stressful lives, it is necessary to get away and unplug. Without every day distractions, we have the chance to refocus on what is important in our lives. The Private Equestrian Estate - Tranquil Getaway provides just that. We were visiting for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The property is beautiful and the cabin was everything we wanted. It was clean, cozy, far enough away from the business of Brevard but close enough to visit all the parks, shops and restaurants. Ilse and Otis were great and very accommodating hosts. If you're looking for a clean, tranquil place where the hostess has thought of everything, look no further. We'll, definitely, be back again!

We were attending a family graduation celebration here. The cabin is truly lovely. Nice and cozy and very clean. A lot of thought is given to provide everything a guest could ask for. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. Really enjoyed meeting Otis and talking with Ilse about her various pets. Thank you for allowing us to celebrate and spend time with the family at your place.

“Too wonderful to share!”
Reviewed 6 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Sometimes you just find a place that you don't want to share! You're afraid if you ever want to come back, there will be no vacancy! Just a short ride from downtown Brevard and half an hour away from Cashiers and Asheville, this cabin is tucked away on a private gated estate. The cabin has huge windows with views of the property to include a pond, waterfall and fenced horse pastures. Cabin is light and airy. Master bedroom has a very comfortable king bed with nice linens, spacious bathroom. Additional beds in very spacious loft area with additional full bath. So cozy! Kitchen has everything you'd need including a Kuerig coffee maker and dishwasher! The cabin was clean with very tasteful decor. Simple, cozy, lovely views and lovely hostess. We were very well taken care of by our hostess Ms Ilse and spoiled with homemade pumpkin bread! The other inhabitants of this special place were loved by all! Otis the dog and Tommy the barn cat would stop by occasionally to say hello! Cabin is close to Gorges State Park and Dupont State Forest for mountain biking, lots of restaurants in downtown Brevard, quick drive to Biltmore Estate and downtown Asheville. No light pollution and millions of stars on a clear night! If she'll have us, we will be back!

“Convenient location, picturesque view, accommodating hostess.”

We loved this property. It was a great "home base" for going waterfall hunting in Pisgah National Forest and Gorges State Park. It was also conveniently located close to Brevard for shopping and dining with minimal mountain driving. Our hostess was warm and welcoming, and so was her faithful sidekick, Otis. We hope to return to this scenic and restful estate soon.

“An amazing cabin in the mountains”

My boyfriend and I stayed two nights while we were checking out nearby waterfalls. It was a great location close to national parks. I can't say enough about Ilse, she is an amazing host. She left us brochures that were extremely helpful. She made cookies and banana nut bread that my boyfriend couldn't get enough of. Her property is one of the most peaceful cabins I have ever stayed in. The waterfall was soothing to listen to and I loved hearing the frogs and watching the firefly's at night. The cabin was the perfect size for us, had everything we needed and was well maintained/clean. I love (and miss) Otis, if we could fit him in our car we definitely would have. One of the best, well-trained, sweetest, biggest teddy bear I have ever meet. Again I can't say enough about this property and Ilse. When we are in the area again we are definitely staying here!
