“A Special New Years Eve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

My wife and I have an eighteen-year tradition of sharing the New Year's Eve holiday with her sister and brother-in-law, always in a different location. We have stayed in fine hotels, causal resorts, and cottage rentals from Montreal to St. Augustine, sometimes at a location recommended by friends, but often the result our collective research. Our 2011 choice was the Red House Inn, not in the inn itself, but by choice in a rental cottage a few blocks away on Franklin Street. What a find! Of all the accommodations we have shared along the East Coast, none surpassed the ambiance of the Franklin St. cottage in meeting our desires.

We have outgrown the need to stay at a fancy hotel or resort complete with holiday hats, noise-makers, and champagne. We're more interested in serene, comfortable, informal, and warm accommodations, and that is exactly what we found at the Franklin St.cottage. Recently renovated, tastefully decorated, and spacious, the cottage was a homey retreat from which we spent three days exploring the delightful Town of Brevard and the nearby parks and forests with their beautiful waterfalls. The three bedrooms and two baths with comfortable beds and TV's were spacious and spotless. As a matter of fact, the entire facility was squeeky clean, and the kitchen was abundantly equipped with ample china, like-new flatware and glistening utensils.

The heating system was responsive, and the fireplace insert, amply supplied with seasoned firewood, provided additional warmth and coziness on cold winter evenings. Glass sliders or French doors permitted direct access from each of the bedrooms onto huge deck complete with outdoor furniture and a gas grill.

Despite its location in a residential neighborhood, the cottage is screened by hedges, shrubs, and a wooded back lot providing plenty of privacy. There's more, but I'll end this review by highlighting the out-sized, tiled shower stall in the bathroom shared by two of the bedrooms. It sports shower heads on opposing walls, allowing residents the luxury of "saving water by showering with a friend"!

In short, if you enjoy "doing self" in a relaxed and homey atmosphere with family or friends, the Red House Inn's Franklin Street cottage is a perfect place to explore and enjoy the western North Carolina mountains with their pleasant small towns.

My wife and I decided to get out of town on Christmas Day and go to Brevard. Based on other reviews we must have stayed in the Probart room. It was downstairs and just off the side door. It was spacious with to-die-for linens on the king size bed. The bathroom was huge with a great tub and separate large shower. Daniel was very helpful with restaurant and waterfall recommendations. The town is quaint and only a few blocks away. They accommodated our lazy tendency of sleeping in and still prepared a made to order breakfast both mornings with eggs sausage bacon pancakes toast from local bakery and fresh fruit. There is a good size living room with fireplaces for lounging. Daniel and Tracy were wonderful hosts and we'd definitely visit again

We just spent three days at the Red House Inn, and are still raving about this beautiful Bed and Breakfast! We stayed in the Probart Room, and it was lovely---clean and cozy, with the most comfortable sheets and bed linens we have ever encountered. The bathroom was a treat, with a double-headed shower and a large clawfoot tub. We could have spent the entire weekend in our room!
Each morning we ate on the side porch and watched the famous white squirrels of Brevard frolic among the grounds as ate our delicious breakfast, prepared by our hostess, Tracie (her husband and daughter were out of town). She was so accommodating, and we loved talking to her about the town and the history of the inn. The food was excellent, and that was quite a feat, because we later found out her husband is the inn's usual chef!
Town is a short walk away, and we enjoyed Brevard's many stores and restaurants. My brother lives close by, so we are looking forward to a repeat trip and another stay at this beautiful inn!

Our kids gave us an overnight stay at the Red House Inn in Brevard for a Mother's Day/Father's Day gift. Our schedule allowed us to go in September. We had a wonderful time--stayed in the Probart Room--it is a beautiful and spacious room--the bath had a claw foot tub as well as a large shower. The bed was estremely comfortable. The inn is impeccably clean and there are fresh flowers in every nook and corner! The young couple who run the inn are very personable and friendly. We had breakfast the next morning on the porch and it was delicious. There was also excellent wireless internet at the inn if that is something that you wish to access. The inn was within easy walking distance of town and we had a wonderful stay in the lovely town of Brevard, NC.

Room Tip: Probart Room was wonderful--some rooms might be smaller, but I am sure they are all quite excellent.

We enjoyed our stay at the Red House Inn in Brevard. The town is full of antique stores and lots of local crafts. Daniel and Tracy are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were very good. They took time to tell us how to get places and where to shop. There are quite a few good restaurants in town and several are within walking distance. We would stay here again when we are in the area.
