We provide first in class concierge service and love to help our guests plan the ultimate mountain vacation. In addition, we provide our guests with access to our unique online guidebook complete with all of our favorite restaurants, things to do, and places to see. Once Upon a Stream is ideally setup for a two-family vacation getaway. The cottage is a 3 BR/2.5 BA with a loft and sleeps up to 10 comfortably. The main level offers a large Master en-suite with a King-size bed topped with 400 thread-count, Egyptian cotton sheets, and high-end pillows. You will be in heaven in the over-sized jetted tub enjoying the view and taking in all of nature's beauty. Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms and a loft with pullout couch. The 2nd bedroom has a queen-sized bed also topped with fine linens and pillows. The 'bunk room' is equipped with four twin-size bunk beds and additional air mattresses for overflow kids.
Ideally situated on a 2-acre private lot, the cottage will spoil you to the point where you won't want to leave. Greet the morning with a cup of coffee on the large back deck. Stroll down the backyard hill along the meandering boulder pathway to the stone patio below and enjoy a glass of wine as you listen to the noisy stream. The kids will stay busy exploring and hiking up and downstream- bring your dog too!
Whether you stay for a few nights or a few weeks, we strive to create a one of a kind experience for you at Once Upon a Stream. Please contact us for more information on booking your mountain getaway.
A perfect getaway, beautiful home, very clean and comfortable.
The owner is very friendly and willing to adjust your schedule if necessary.
The home is located in the beautiful mountains and is centrally located between Brevard and Cashiers with Highlands just a short distance. The Girls had a great time shopping these areas. The guys were able to play golf at several nearby courses and had a splendid adventure on the mountain courses.
Micas is my choice as the best place to eat, Brevard also has several good eating places.
Everyone had a great time.

We really enjoyed a super relaxing long weekend here! We had plans to go skiing and tubing, but after the whole family was recovering from a virus, we opted for restful weekend instead. My kids loved the bunk beds & toys. My pups loved exploring the woods & path to the stream. Hubby and i enjoyed snuggling on the couch and hitting pause. Perfectly quiet & bright beautiful stars at night. Home was clean & comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook all our meals. Linens & beds were comfortable!! Highly recommend this Home and the area.
