4th time back. Everything was as expected. Beautiful property.
Cozy Cottage Getaway
June 19, 2017
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Streamside! The home was very welcoming! We loved the outdoor spaces, mountain retreat furnishings and decor! Fabulous lamps!! The house was well equipped with necessities and comfortable beds.
We kept busy kayaking, hiking and visiting high falls and other waterfalls. Lunch in Brevard was great.
Thank you Jim! We hope to visit again soon.

We so enjoyed our stay in your lovely home in the woods. Every attention to detail is made in this home from the super comfy beds to the well appointed kitchen. We cooked all our meals with ease and kept a fire burning in the stone fireplace with plenty of wood. We enjoyed our visit from Patches the neighbors friendly pup. The surrounding grounds are beautifully landscaped and we loved walking the property. The house is close to the Dupont state forest and its hiking trails. We highly recommend this home.
Perfectly Appointed, Lovely Place for a Getaway
July 22, 2016
Streamside Home is a perfectly appointed small house, with lovely and thoughtful decor, well-equipped for cooking (full range of herbs and spices, for example) with a great outdoor grilling and eating area (even has an outdoor overhead fan to help keep heat down and bugs away). It’s spacious enough to relax in, with a good-sized living room area equipped with a TV, oversized coffee table, and a full game table. The nearby stream is lovely and there is a generous grassy area next to the house. It comfortably housed all 6 of us (5 adults and a teenager). The front porch/deck is large, and there is even a little summer house with another porch and a lovely sitting area inside (but no AC or heat). The waterfall cabin is nearby, but otherwise there are no other homes visible from the house. We will definitely return to this wonderful house, or try out the smaller adjacent waterfall cabin!
The location seemed out of the way at first – down a series of hair-pin curving roads south of Brevard, then down a single track gravel road – but once we got our bearings, we realized how close we were to hikes and waterfalls in DuPont Forest, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and many other beautiful sites and activities. Hendersonville and Brevard were close enough to have afternoons or evenings in town. Perfect Wi-Fi at the house – but for most, there is no cell phone coverage until you get a few miles away.
The owner is incredibly welcoming and responsive to questions, which is also a real plus. He answered questions about the house prior to our stay and about the area during our stay – and he always got back to me very quickly by email or phone. He also put us in touch with a terrific guy who does tours of waterfalls, especially many that we didn’t know about or wouldn’t have been able to visit on our own (since they are on private land). He’s also a great naturalist and resource for area hiking.

Awesome Get Away
July 8, 2016
We wanted a vacation to unplug and spend time as a family. THF was perfect for this. We hiked during the day. We came back to the cabin at night to cook together as a family. We also played games and had lots of laughs. This was by fair one of our best vacations. The cabin was perfect!!! Thank You Jim and we will definitely be back!!

Our family loved our stay in the cabin. It was so peaceful being nestled back in the woods along with the sound of the stream. The modern touches in the house and lovely decorations made for a wonderful experience. Our family enjoyed sitting around the fireplace each night talking and enjoying the sounds of nature. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area if you’re patient and willing to take a drive. Our favorite spots were Skinny Dip Falls, Bird Rock Falls, fishing and the waterfalls and river at Dupont State Forest. It was a great weekend being unplugged and in touch with nature and family.
