Away from the hustle and bustle
Our family has visited the Brevard area for years and have fallen in love with the area. If you are looking for go-cart tracks and put-putt golf, go to that tourist trap called Pigeon Forge. If you want clean air, beautiful scenery, and a quaint mountain town, Brevard is the place. David's house, which we recently had the pleasure of staying in, is located inside a gated community several miles from Brevard. It is roomy and has all the modern updates, yet has a true mountain home feel. Connestee is a nature lover's paradise - beautiful, clean lakes for swimming (Lake Ticoa our favorite), and hiking trails that are awesome (the trail system below Ticoa Dam takes you to Connestee Falls). Crowds - there are none and we have been coming here about 15 years. The shops and restaurants (don't miss Rocky's for a hot dog and shake or Jordan Street Café for a nice dinner) in Brevard are exceptional. Also, O P Taylor's toy store downtown is the best! The Connestee clubhouse grille is a great place for pizza and burgers if you don't care to drive into Brevard for the evening. You can call ahead and they will have it ready for you. Thanks David - We will be back in the fall!
