The cabins are beautiful, clean and have everything you need. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the location is perfect for mountain biking and close to downtown. If we visit this area again we’ll definitely plan to stay here again!

We rented 2 cabins while we were at Pilot Cove, a one bedroom cabin and an efficiency. Both were clean, pleasantly decorated, and comfortable. The beds were awesome and offered a great nights sleep. The location was awesome for hiking Pisgah Forest and driving into downtown Brevard for meals or shopping. You could also be in Dupont Forest within a 20 minute drive. Our visit at Pilots Cove lasted 5 days and we hope to be back in the future!

The 2 bedroom cabins are nice and very well appointed! We had a great time just relaxing and enjoying the many beautiful hikes in the area. My only negative is that the 2 bedroom cabins only have 1 bathroom. It would be nice to have another full bathroom or at least another half bath. I did know that going in but didn't realize how much of a bottleneck that could create :)

What a wonderful getaway for my husband, my two teenage boys, and myself. We were able to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There was a TV in our cabin, but we didn't even turn it on once! The weather was remarkable while we were there and we spent the entire time outdoors. We were lucky to have a cabin on the end. The cabins are pretty close together. Overall, we loved it and we'll be back!

Awesome place. Quite, clean, didn’t lack for anything in the kitchen, and so convenient. We fished and hiked, with our dog, for three days. Can’t wait to come back. Very well done units and property. Picture is Moore Cove Falls.
