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.

Exquisite Decor

I arrived at Base Camp property and was immediately impressed with the exquisite decor. Every room was tastefully decorated. The entire home was immaculate and super comfortable. My guest and I really enjoyed the outdoor large deck complete with fire pit and really nice furniture. We all enjoyed the fine bedding purchased from west elm. There is a nice gift of a pound cake which was perfect for our morning coffee. We loved the area and it is only a short drive to the city of Asheville. This area was a great choice for our group of four because we were able to enjoy lots of great activities close by. Local restaurants, kayaking, shopping, parks, trails, etc. We can't wait to return.

Perfect place for us

Base camp was the perfect place for us to stay as we picked up and dropped off our daughters at a summer camp we attended ourselves 30 years prior. We even had a few alumni meet up at base camp for s'mores and sharing of campfire stories. The hostess was very welcoming and informative with local information and the home was very comfortable.

Wonderful Stay

Our family of 5, including our granddaughter, had a wonderful stay in a Brightwaters Vacation Tioga cabin in June 2018. The cabin was very comfortable, clean, well decorated and well kept. Great location with access to Ingles supermarket and a nice country diner within a couple of miles. Cabin hostess Elisabeth was very gracious. We will certainly return to a Brightwaters vacation cabin when visiting Hendersonville again.

Cute, quiet, and relaxing

We enjoyed our 2-night stay. House is clean, cozy, and well-decorated. Owner is very responsive and easy to communicate with. Grocery store is very close, as are lots of things to do. We really enjoyed our stay!

The perfect "base camp" for our needs

We had a very positive experience staying in Hendersonville. We were in the area for a wedding that weekend and just needed somewhere to lay our heads when we weren't out and about. The house itself is as described, small but comfortable as long as you're not planning on staying in all day. The house was very clean and pleasing to be in. Not too far from the main road and everywhere we needed to be for the weekend. My son loved the "kids" room, and each room was decorated tastefully and spotless. Elizabeth was wonderful to work with and I can't say enough good things about her or the property. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in the area I couldn't recommend this property highly enough!

Cozy, quiet place for a getaway.

I stayed at the hideaway with 2 girlfriends for a weekend getaway in Asheville and Hendersonville. The house is nicely decorated, has comfy beds and is super clean. It has a nice view from the deck -- we even saw several white squirrels!

The house was tidy and nice and the backyard was great!

The house is truly a Base Camp, just like the description says. The house was very clean and had all the necessities. There is a grocery store right up the road, which was convenient. Besides the trek to get to and from Asheville and the yucky weather, our stay was really nice AND affordable, a big thumbs up there!!

Clean, Cozy, & had everything we needed

I stayed in Base Camp last weekend with my roommate and we absolutely loved it! The place was clean, cozy and had everything we needed to make us feel at home. The location is also great! We do a fall hiking trip every year and this was very close to the trails. The colors were beautiful and the view at the top of John Rock was well worth it. We also checked out a couple of the breweries and had a great time. Elisabeth was very good about communicating with us if we had any questions and had great recommendations. Will absolutely stay there again and I'm looking forward to checking out the other rentals available as well :) Thank you for a great weekend!
