Description ↑↓

When our brother passed away and left us his beautiful home, we decided that the best way to honor his memory would be to share it with others. He called it Vaquero (Spanish for "Horseman") because of his love of horses. The property includes a three stall horse barn with secure storage for bikes and other equipment. The pasture borders the French Broad River in the back of the property. We plan to complete repairs to the fence soon so we can accommodate horses in the near future.

Vaquero's outdoor spaces have been lovingly maintained and include a screened porch and deck that overlook the pasture and the dramatic mountain view beyond. There is a lovely gazebo where you will find both a gas grill and a charcoal grill. The pond beside it has a little dock, which is a peaceful place to sit and relax. We are nestled in the valley so you don't have to drive on any twisty mountain roads to get here.

Come explore Brevard, Asheville, Hendersonville and the surrounding communities. Vaquero is located a mere 2 mile drive to Oskar Blues Brewery and several other excellent local breweries. Beautiful Sierra Nevada Brewery is only about a 30 minute drive away with tours and a restaurant. We are just minutes from downtown Brevard and the entrance to Pisgah National Forest. It's also a short drive to DuPont State Forest, the site of the beautiful waterfalls featured in The Hunger Games. Opportunities for outdoor activities are endless, including biking, hiking and sightseeing.

Check out the shopping, dining and scenery as you walk down Main Street in Brevard. Be sure to check out The Proper Pot, a great kitchen store that also sells wine, cheese and other yummy snacks. Another favorite is Main Street Ltd., a great gift shop right next to Quotations Cafe which is known for the occasional patronage of Steve Martin, a seasonal Brevard resident. Of course, Brevard is home to the renowned Brevard Music Center, and is also host to annual festivals including the White Squirrel Festival every Memorial Day Weekend, the Twilight Tour and festival in early December, great 4th of July festivals, the Mountain Song Festival every September, and lots of fun activities on Halloween (Brevard is in Transylvania County, after all).

We look forward to hosting your visit, and we hope you love Vaquero as much as we do!

Lovely Property

By: Trip Date: 2018-11-08
This property was exactly as described and then some. We truly felt like we were staying in someone's home, not a boring hotel. It is located so close to Brevard where you can find just about anything you might need. I would highly recommend Vaquero!

Family Getaway Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2018-10-19
We found the [perfect location in the mountains for the family vacation. Our son is an avid mountain biker and he said there couldn't be a more convenient location. He was only three miles from Pisgah National Forest entrance and only a little further from Dupont State Forest, It is a bikers dream location. The rest of the family enjoyed both the location to outdoor activities and the convivence of dinning and shopping in Brevard. Vaquero was the perfect "home away from home", base of operation for our extended weekend. The house is perfect for a family who wants access to all that wonderful Western North Carolina has to offer. Perfect for hikers, mountain bikers or horseback riders. The property comes complete with barn and fenced pasture. Very nice decks, gazebo and wildlife pond are all included. The house is very clean and comfortable. We will be back for certain!
