Description

Welcome to the Brightwaters Guesthouse:Garden level flat! The charming, sunny Garden level flat is centrally located in Hendersonville on a private, multi-home property, close to downtown (only 3.5 miles).Perfectly situated for exploring DuPont and Pisgah's waterfalls and trails, Asheville, Brevard and more. This historic home is ideal for couples, business travelers or friends traveling together. 

The Guesthouse, established in 1938, has a celebrated history. Today, the fully renovated flats (this listing is for the Garden level)Please see listing for the upstairs Verandah level) offer guests all of the comforts of an elegant Southern home.

Our History

The Brightwaters Guesthouse was originally built in 1938 as an 8 bedroom, 6 bathroom guesthouse. The founder, Samuel Childs, built the Brightwaters Guesthouse and Lodge and Dining Room, as well as 25 cottages on his 400 acres, in the surrounding area. The entire resort was called Brightwaters Estates, and was frequented by guests, primarly from Florida, looking to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cool, mountain air. On the grounds of the Guesthouse, Childs renovated an 1800's one-room schoolhouse to make it the dining hall for guests staying at the Guesthouse and the surrounding cottages.

In the 1970's, the Guesthouse was renovated into 2 flats (one upstairs and one downstairs). Each flat had 2 bedrooms/2 baths, a living room, a dining and a kitchen. And the former, interior staircase was removed.

Today, the Brightwaters Guesthouse takes back it's original name and has been refreshed and restored to it's former glory, exposing the refinished hardwood floors and tongue and groove paneling. The Brightwaters Guesthouse offer guests the opportunity to step back in time and enjoy it's timeless elegance.

The Garden level flat is a great house for getting away to enjoy the outdoors. Very close to all of the best mountain biking and hiking trails - DuPont, Pisgah, Bent Creek and Mills River. Accommodates a maximum of 4 people. Minutes to grocery and restaurants. Only 11 miles from the Asheville Airport. The Brighwaters Guesthouse is centrally located to dining, breweries and entertainment in Hendersonville, Brevard and Asheville, as well as other areas, such as Tryon and Saluda. All within a 30 minute drive.

The Brightwaters Guesthouse:Garden level is on a quiet cul-de-sac in a small, private sub-division, owned by me. This is a multi-home property, so it is ideal for large groups. Check out my other cabins, the Guesthouse:Verandah level, and the Foxhole Cottage by clicking on my profile picture.

WOW...Even the pictures can't do it justice

Easy to find, well appointed and all the amenities of home. The charm of this residence is evident from the moment you pull on to the property and is further enhanced by the lovely interior decor. Elisabeth you are a great hostess! I hope we have occasion to return to charming Hendersonville and stay at your lovely cottage again.

Perfectly Suited for our Family!

My family stayed at the Brightwaters Gardens on Tioga road. We rented the upstairs and downstairs units and it was perfectly suited for our family. We enjoyed the porch to drink coffee on and share good times with the people involved in my sons wedding . it was the perfect location to get to Etowah for the wedding service and to Hendersonville to have the reception at the Cedars. Our rehearsal party was at Cummings cove country club. We were very happy to be so close to all the places that we were sharing with our family. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend and your beautiful rental .

What a great place to come home to!!

I stayed at this property on very short notice when traveling to Hendersonville for a family emergency. I am a frequent VRBO-renter in Hendersonville, but none of my usual places were available. Turns out, it could not have worked out better! Everything about the experience was perfect- and I mean EVERYTHING. Elisabeth was so accommodating and kind. I told her that I was to arrive after midnight and she made sure that there were plenty of lights inside and out so I didn't have to fumble about to get inside. And, there was a delicious little cake waiting (I was starving, so that was amazing!). So welcoming! As for the home, I can truly say that pictures don't do it justice. The house is beautiful, the rooms are large, the beds and linens are top quality, the decor is lovely. The kitchen is well appointed (even tho' the only thing I used was one wine glass...don't judge me :) In addition to tending to my family emergency, I had to work remotely and the wi-fi was fast and reliable. Even simple creature comforts - like a really good hair dryer, good water pressure in the shower, an uncomplicated front-door lock, a simplified check-out process, a lovely outdoor front porch - made it feel like home at the end of several very stressful days. The location is very pretty and just minutes from everything I needed. Thank you, Elisabeth, for your kind hospitality. You made a difficult trip so much more enjoyable, and I appreciate your consideration. I will definitely return!

The home was beautifully appointed, clean and extremely comfortable. It was wonderful and more than exceeded our expectations. The living areas were very nice as were the bedrooms. Elisabeth had all kinds of information available on area attractions and responded immediately to any questions via email or phone. She provided excellent suggestions regarding the dining choices in the area. Top notch service. We will definitely be going there again in the future! - Frank
