The Red House Inn is one of the best bed and breakfast conversions of a private home that my wife and I have ever encountered. Our suite took up half of the top floor and included a large bedroom, large sitting area (that can serve as a second bedroom), modernized bath, and huge balcony.
The day we arrived was very hot and humid, but a nice little wind was blowing. When not actually sleeping, we spent most of our time on the porch enjoying the breeze. Had the weather been inclement, we could have relaxed either in our private sitting room or in the downstairs parlor. Both were very well appointed.
The Red House Inn is located on the edge of the town of Brevard within walking distance of shops, bars, and restaurants. Even in the muggy weather, we enjoyed the short stroll into downtown for dinner.
Our innkeepers were very friendly without being intrusive. And breakfast was a delight! Many foods come from local farms, and our hosts were informative about their sources. However, no matter how free the chickens who laid the eggs roam or how quickly the chives were harvested and delivered, it's how the food tastes that really matters. And at the Red House Inn, it tasted great.
We have already cleared our calendar for a longer stay in the fall when the leaves change.
