Deerwoode Resort is a wonderful find for us. We hiked the miles of trails, chilled out on the front porch swing, and took early morning walks around ponds with rising mist. Wildlife was abundant. We saw herons, pied-billed grebes, warblers, and many other birds. The Bear Cabin was cozy and comfortable. And the owners were helpful and friendly. Peace, quiet, comfort, and nature.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Historic Deerwoode, 175 acres of green, sustainable, peaceful serenity and wildlife preserve along the banks of The French Broad River, one of the oldest rivers in the world. Once a summer camp built in 1923 and closed in 1991, Deerwoode has matured into a quiet retreat for adults only. Preserving the vintage, old hardwood structures, many unique old stone fireplaces, and all with lake, river and mountain views, makes Deerwoode a must stop when visiting WNC. Deerwoode is truly one of the most ecological and pretty places in North Carolina, and only two miles from downtown Brevard. ... more less
