Thank you for sharing such a beautiful mountain getaway!  We loved the waterfall, the streams, the view, and the silence - it all made our trip so special!  We will definitely be back!

My first thoughts upon arriving... I'm in heaven!  We loved opening the doors and hearing the waterfall and creeks.  The cabin had everything we could have possibly needed for our stay.  We definitly feel this is probably the best vaation we've ever been on.  Once our little one arrives, we'll have to take antoher trip to Brooksong as a family.  Thank you.

This past weekend was the best therapy I could have asked for! Who needs a shrink when you can come to this place?! My husband and I spent 2 very relaxing days enjoying nature and each other. The waterfall was mesmerizing as we heard it everywhere we stood on the property. The cabin was exactly like the photos showed on VRBO/Homeaway; even better! The bed we slept in was super cozy and the sheets were amazing! We had everything we needed to cook our meals and had romantic dinners on the back deck. Stacy met us when we got there and showed us around. She made sure we had everything we needed to have a nice weekend. We will definitely be coming back. Oh, and our phones and the wi-fi worked perfectly. Thanks so much Stacy!

Brooksong is MAGICAL!  We are so grateful that the timing worked out for us to be here.  The sound of the waterfall and creeks seem to be with us everywhere.  We had drinks by the waterfall last night, dinner on the deck, and slept soundly with the peaceful sound of the water. While we were having coffee on the deck this morning, we had a visit from a few beautiful hummingbirds and a broad-winged hawk landed on the hemlock right in front of us!

Brooksong is peaceful, secluded, and good for the soul!  Each of the three generations in our family enjoyed the cabin, porch, swings, waterfall and streams!  Have some firewood delivered and enjoy a fire in the beautiful stone fireplace.  The outside views from this room are amazing.  The beds are warm and the kitchen inviting!  Stacy made our stay so easy, she provided great driving directions and answered all of our questions.  The property was clean and obviously cared for and loved!  You will love spending time at Brooksong!

The dust has settled and we wanted to share with your perspective visitors what a wonderful time our family had over Thanksgiving. The home and grounds are truly lovely and the feeling of serenity that envelops the home and surroundings were the perfect fit for our holiday getaway.  The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with pots and pans so even foodies like us could cook to our hearts content.

We so look forward to repeating the visit at different times of the year to fully grasp the awesome place you have created. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

We are back in the flatland and reality…would rather be on your back porch. Hopefully will be again soon.  See my brook trout caught on East Fork in the French Broad!

I wrote a little note in your guest book, but I wanted to personally email you and say thank you!  The cabin was absolutely amazing.....the cabin itself was comfortable and had all amenties someone could ask for....the property was inspiring.  We spent alot of time walking the grounds and sitting near the waterfall.  When we finally did venture from the cabin, we enjoyed day trips to Asheville and Hendersonville and did lots of hiking in Dupont and Gorge State Parks.  Of course we also spent time in Brevard, enjoying the quaint shops and delicious dining.  For a bit of excitement, my husband got face to face with one of your local bears (yikes!). It was a pleasure to meet you when checking in and we thank you again for your hospitality!

We had a wonderful stay at your cabin.  Our time there was too short and we did not want to leave. Hope to come back next year!  Thank you so much.

Now that we're back home, I wanted to more fully thank you for a wonderful stay at Brooksong.  It was perfect. It far exceeded our expectations. We travel a lot and found the cabin to be our new favorite place. It's a shame that we live 10 hours away.  We were able to bring my wife's 91 year old uncle up from Brevard for the day.   He was obviously impressed as well.  He has been a 25 year resident of another local mountain community and it really lifted his spirits to be at your cabin. We met a few of the neighbors and they helped us locate a great trail past the Model T to a waterfall.  We really could have stayed right around the house for the entire time.  Our daughters are 13,12 and 9 and share our love for the outdoors.  They had plenty to do and never complained about being bored.  We hope to visit again soon.

Thank you for the last minute escape at your beautiful cabin.  I am a school administrator and my best friend is a police sergeant and it was great to escape parents, students, and criminals for a few days. The cabin, yard, streams and waterfall provided much needed solitude and relaxation for all of us. Hopefully, we can visit again in the near future.  I need to work on my dissertation and after spending time at Brooksong, I know I would feel completely safe even if I stay on my own!

WOW! WOW!! WOW!! We have fallen in love with your amazing "Brooksong Cabin". The beautifully furnished house, amazing landscaping surrounded by a babbling brook...and to top it off with the incredible waterfall. We have been blessed by your generosity to share your slice of heaven with us. We have never felt more at peace with nature and relaxed. We hope to return again! What a blessing!

What a place you have here! The waterfall, creeks, the porch. Our most difficult time here was leaving the comfort of the porch. The birds at the feeder are awesome. I found Peace at the waterfall meditating in the mornings. Oh, but now back to the real world. Will be back here again.

This was the third house we have rented in the Brevard area, and by far our favorite. It was my family of three and another couple. The set up of the house was perfect for traveling with another couple as the two bedrooms are on different floors. Everything was modern and well maintained within the house. Outside was spectacular. My family, who normally runs from sun up to sun down, spent a day just relaxing outside on the property. The waterfall is much more impressive in person and the porch on the back of the house was the perfect place to relax after a day of hiking. We loved the fire pit and actually cooked our dinner over an open fire one night. Definitely follow the directions that you are sent with your confirmation as there is no cell service on the mountain. The gravel driveway is steep but we were able to get up the driveway without four wheel drive (not sure that would happen in the winter though). We were also able to bring our dog who loved being able to run on the property. This cabin is definitely our first choice in Brevard.

I just wanted to drop a note and say thank you. Our kids and grand kids have just left to head for home. We had one of the very best weekends ever. We could NOT have met at a better place. The atmosphere is like non other. The cabin is such a peaceful place. Our two oldest grand children loved for us to play with them in the stream and we all loved the waterfall. Sitting on the benches at the bottom was so very relaxing. We will be getting up early to start on our long ride home but just wanted to drop this note while I was still here. Thank you. This place is like non other.

What an adventure!! Every year the family fills up the truck and drives north for the holidays. This year was no different. We were welcomed into this homey cabin - much needed after not knowing the tricks to arriving to so much snow. The grounds were covered with 3-4 inches of snow "at least" on our first night's arrival. Everyday we made breakfast, sat as a family, and enjoyed the house. With so much snow around us, we wanted to stay on the grounds - which became a blessing. We visited the waterfall numerous times, made snowmen, and even made a BBQ :-). The stay was truly a memorable one. We have taken more than 300+ pictures in the house alone. With the premises being so gorgeous who would want to leave!

Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us! I can't think of a more peaceful and relaxing way to spend our anniversary! We love the waterfall, the stream and relaxing on the porch. The waterfalls here are beautiful, and we had a great dinner at the Quarry. We hope to return next year.
