Comfortable house with fully equipped kitchen, outside deck seating and grill. Enjoy the fire pit in the evening. There is a large, locked storage for bikes, kayaks and outdoor gear. This home is an excellent "base camp" for all of your outdoor adventures - close to DuPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest and Bent Creek trails.

And within 7 minutes of Base Camp, you can be kayaking, tubing or canoeing on the most beautiful stretch of the French Broad River, with Lazy Otter Outfitters!

The Space

Loved It!

Elisabeth's place was a perfect spot for our family weekend. My husband had a bike race one morning and the rest of the time we enjoyed exploring the area. Everything was so close by. Elisabeth told us about great spots to sightsee and for meals. The place was comfortable and quiet. Loved it.

Place is amazing

Made a last minute trip to the Blue Ridge mountains and stayed here. This place is amazing! Perfectly situated near many hiking trails and waterfalls. Our host had many different brochures and pamphlets laid out to find our way. Very clean with all the necessities and creature comforts needed when we turned in for the evening. Elisabeth was a wonderful host, quick responses whenever we had questions and greeted us with banana bread and card! I will stay here again!

Clean and plenty of space

Base Camp is a great accommodation, it was clean, plenty of space and very comfortable. We were only there for a short time, unfortunately, but would have loved to enjoy relaxing on the deck. Elisabeth was easy to communicate with and returned an item we left behind. Thank you, Elisabeth.

Hi Everyone, I'm an avid mountain biker and hiker. I love the mountains and invite you to enjoy them too.

As the owner of several vacation rentals, Brightwaters Vacation Rentals, I take great pride in creating a home away from home for my guests and, as a host, I've met a lot of great people. I'm happy to share my knowledge and experience with you when you visit Western North Carolina.
