Ahhhh, where to start? In an era of sameness.....Holiday Inn Best Western Star Buckery nonsense Mountain Brook delivers the ultimate luxury which is one million percent authenticity.

I almost hate to write this review because this is like a hidden gem you almost want to keep for yourself. But I have to share. My boyfriend made the trip arrangements and chose the Mountain Brook Cottages and the honeymoon cottage (#11) for our anniversary weekend. He is quite the romantic and stickler for details and had many things... More

Both Maqelle and I had fun working with your man on the Romantic Surprise he had for you which evolved into quite an "event". Candles. Flowers. Bath products. Appetizer. Your anniversary song playing at your entrance and on and on...5 boxes worth of lovelies that he had mailed in awaiting your arrival...he is quite the man for details! It seems... More

August - December 2012 I spent in a cottage at Mountain Brook. I was attending an academy in Franklin, NC, just down the mountain. In finding housing this seemed the ideal fit for such a long stint in the mountains. It was far enough away from school that I could get away at the end of each day. I worked... More

Kris, it pleases us no end to have been able to provide a quiet place for you for your studies and Gus enjoyed talking with you about police work in an effort to pass on some tips he'd learned while he was in law enforcement. Being centrally located to things you wanted to explore was an added benefit since the... More

I recently stayed at Mountain Brook Cottages and had such a wonderful time. This was my first trip to western North Carolina. I must say that my stay at Mountain Brook was wonderful.

Music to our ears. We almost hope it will rain a little so our weary guests will stop, breathe deeply, listen to music (or brooks tumbling down the mountainside), relax by the fireside and cuddle up with a good book. Meeting guests and making new friends is our specialty, and it was a pleasure to have you with us. Maqelle... More

We wish you could have stayed longer, too!

Both the wife and I had a grand stay. The whole staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The friends that was with us could not believe how relaxing the cabins was and all had a great time. Thank you !!!!!!

Since 1979 we've been providing a relaxing getaway and we're so glad you and your friends were pleased with our property. It's sure not like a motel is it? We're spoiled and only like to stay in cabins ourselves. We'll be watching for your next return. Michele More

This was a wonderful place to stay! It was quiet and peaceful and was a great place to take children to get them "off the grid." Our innkeepers were absolutely wonderful and very attentive to our needs. We will definitely be staying here again.

It absolutely delights us when guests bring their children for an old timey mountain vacation...one where children come to revel in the joys of nature and cherish the memories they'll always have of being with family they love and that love them. We're here for you! More

Mountain Brook was absolutely incredible. The owners were great. The only bad thing about this haven is that it doesn't have a time machine to allow time to be stopped so I didn't have to return to the world and responsibilities. Will definitely return before the year is over.

When guests "wahhh" as they sadly leave to head home, I tell them that if they can't get to our haven physically, they can get here mentally by using a photo of Mountain Brook as their desk top picture, and putting themselves right here on their porch swing listening to the brooks babble down the mountainside and watching the leaves...

Mountain Brook was exactly what we were looking for. We read many reviews on TripAdvisor prior to booking and had very high expectations, as everyone seemed to enjoy their time here. Mountain Brook definitely lived up to these expectations! Cabins were clean and kitchens had all the basic cookware that we needed. We stayed in one of the Honeymoon cottages... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestled among majestic hardwoods, right in the middle of anything you could possibly want to do in Western North Carolina, is a gathering of quaint cottages dating back to the 1930’s and owned by the same family since 1979. Each cottage has something special to offer and has its own flair, neither one like the other. Modern on the inside, it’s the naturally beautiful scenic setting outside that means so much to our guests. Native trees. Brooks that criss-cross the property. Rhododendron thickets. Wild violets. Trails. Birdsong, squirrels, birds, bunnies. In the twilight, rocking gently on your front porch swing, enjoying the evening breeze, the charming cottages will, as a guest recently reviewed, remind you of a Thomas Kinkade painting. If your expectations of your Smoky Mountain visit are more of nature and less of glitz, you’ll be delighted you’ve found Mountain Brook! ... more   less
