Wow-o-wow! From the pictures, I new this was going to be a nice place to stay...but when we got there, i quickly realized it exceeded all my expectations. The cabins have great architecture, feel roomy and let in a lot of light. Everything in the cabins were top notch, very high quality... from the furnishings, to the bathrooms, to the artwork on the walls, to the kitchen, to the bed, no complaints here. The deck was very roomy and a great place to enjoy outside while eating breakfast or dinner. I honestly felt completely at home in this cabin. I will certainly be back ( hopefully many times).
My wife and I had a wonderful weekend stay at Pilot Cove. The cabins are bright, modern, and very accommodating with all the amenities. The grounds are beautiful and each cabin is tucked well into the woods, essentially nestled within the Pisgah forest. There are fire pits, grills, picnic areas and hiking/biking trails within sight of your front door. We rode the trails on property extensively, as well as biked out to trails in Pisgah, before grabbing food/drinks at the HUB (at the entrance to the property). I even did a nice scenic road ride out to Wolf Creek Lake on Sunday.... all right from the cabin.
Pilot Cove was a wonderful place for my husband and I to stay & enjoy a quiet week away. The newly built Pilot Cove is beautifully done with all your needs thought of in your cabin. Our cabin was the perfect size with beautiful views. Pilot Cove is situated in an area full of activities (biking, hiking, breweries, shopping and delicious restaurants) while being just far enough away to enjoy quiet. Best part for us was that we could bring our dog to enjoy the beauty of NC too!
We loved our stay at Pilot Cove! The accommodations were wonderful...clean, well appointed. And the setting was lovely. We especially loved sitting out on the large, private deck, and relaxing. We'll definitely stay here again on our next visit to the area!
Absolutely amazing! Love this place! Pilot Cove is located as close to the forest as you can get without pitching a tent and roughing it. The cabins are brand new, charming, well thought out, and with all the comforts of home. I love that we can bike an hike from our front door and come home to relax in our cozy, private retreat in the woods. This is the best get away spot for the outdoor enthusiast I've ever seen. We look forward to enjoying Pilot Cove for years to come.
I travel a lot (both internationally and domestically, for work and pleasure) and Pilot Cove is one of the nicest places I've been. The location is absolutely perfect, with a short walk down to the Hub and within minutes of several amazing hiking and biking trails. The quality of the different units is second-to-none... it's a like a much nicer home away from home. The guys at Pilot Cove really know how to do it right!
We planned to camp our way through NC during Spring Break with our kids, but the temps at night were sub 40's and rainy so we booked our stay at Pilot Cove four days before we arrived. We felt so lucky to have found a great place to serve as our base camp for a few days. We did quite a few hikes in Pisgah during our short time in Brevard. Our cabin at Pilot Cove was perfect! As a designer for a modern architectural firm I appreciated the design and layout of our cabin. The beds were comfy, there was plenty of room for our family and gear, and the kitchen had just what we needed! I only wish we could have stayed longer. We will certainly be planning to come back soon - next time with our mountain bikes!
These cabins are a must if you’re staying in the Brevard/Asheville area!! Our cabin was just the right size for our small family...two adults, one kiddo, and our mini Aussie. We had everything we needed in the cabin...we only had to buy some additional laundry detergent packs.
We can’t wait to visit again. I hope the amphitheater is completed on our next stay...It’s going to be an AMAZING space once completed!
Thanks so much for creating a true home away from home!!
We really enjoyed our stay here. The cabin was clean and cozy. The mudroom was really handy for our dirty crew of Mountain Bikers. The bed and bedding was extremely comfortable!!! It's probably the best night's sleep I've had in years. The deck was peaceful and we enjoyed the sounds of the creek below. The sofa was large with plenty of pillows. There was an extra stack of kitchen chairs which was also nice. All of the necessities were there including wine glasses, plenty of dishes, pots, cutting boards and a hair dryer. We would have liked to have found some paper towels and kitchen towels so I could clean up a little more, but that's ok. All and all, we loved the place and will definitely come back again and again.
Just got home from a week stay here...YOU need to go!! I stayed in the studio cabin since it was only my dog and I. It was bigger and as nice as it looked in the pics and video! And the deck was huge! The cabin had everything I needed and then some. It is a bit pricey, but with all that it has to offer and an perfect location, it’s worth it. I would definitely recommend staying at Pilot Cove!
Thanks again to Lane and Syl !
Clean, modern cabins with a location that can't be beat. Everything from booking to check-in was smooth and simple. It's great to be able to walk to restaurants, the grocery store, and bike shops. Easy bike access to the best trails in Pisgah!
We booked last minute my husband, son, poodle, and I planned to camp at pisgah but it was too cold the first night. The cabin was lovely, clean, comfortable, and had anything we wanted. I was sad to go the next day and we will return. The staff was very easy to work with.
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Pilot Cove while celebrating my birthday weekend in January. We enjoyed some hiking in DuPont state forest and delicious food in downtown Brevard. I was very excited to stay at Point Cove after seeing the photos and reviews online, and I can say that the cabin exceeded expectation. We rented a dog friendly cabin so we could bring our two pups with us and my husky could not get enough of the gorgeous deck. Thanks to the secure railing and big glass doors, I could leave her outside to squirrel watch while I kept an eye on her from the warmth of the couch. The bedroom was cozy and the bed and covers were very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with all the basic utensils for eating and cooking. There was a coffee pot and a tea kettle (my husband is a coffee drinker, I’m a tea drinker, so very much appreciated). The bathroom was very convenient as the shower, sink, and toilet are all located in separate rooms, so sharing is easier. The bathroom was well stocked with plenty of clean towels; soap, shampoo, and conditioner in the shower, and a hairdryer. They also had fun touches, like a hammock you could hang out on the deck and a growler for visiting one of the local breweries. The staff we spoke with were super helpful and accommodating and quick to respond to any needs or questions. I will definitely be staying at Point Cove next time I’m planning a trip to NC!
Pilot Cove was amazing! We loved everything about our stay. Colin and Lane were professional and helpful and their passion for Pilot Cove was evident. The interior and exterior of the cabin were designed well with unique minimalist features. We will definitely be back!
Had a great time with 3 families in 3 separates cabins over NYE 2017 weekend. The houses are minimalist in furnishings, but everything has a purpose and sometimes even a dual one. The sleeper sofas were great for pre-teen sleepovers between houses. Absolutely everything you need is there...extra sheets, blankets, towels, etc. Mattresses in bedrooms are very comfy as well. Shower pressure was awesome!
Our favorite feature of all was the enormous deck space and hammocks! Love that it was pet friendly as well.
The VERY minor negative is that the floors by the bathroom are cold in winter (concrete, I believe) so bring slippers.
We happened to have iced road conditions on our departure day. Management was incredibly responsive the night prior regarding our concerns over this.
I would 100% recommend Pilot Cove to friends and family.
We hiked in Pisgah, had lunch and shopped in brevard, and did the same in downtown Asheville.
We had an amazing family trip at Pilot Cove! Our family of 4 rented a two bedroom and had more than enough room. Everything we could ever need was provided and the house was beautiful. The proximity to the national forest can't be beat, and there's plenty of great food within walking distance. The owners are incredibly responsive; we had an ice storm during our visit and had salt on the roads the next morning right away to make sure we were safe to drive. We will definitely be back and recommend for both hiking and biking.
We spent the Christmas holiday at Pilot Cove and the experience could not have been better. The cabins are beautifully crafted and well maintained with hiking and biking trails located right outside the door. However, while private, access to shopping, restaurants, etc... is only 5-10 minutes away. Lane provided excellent customer service by being responsive and flexible. If you are looking for the best of both worlds, immersion in nature but with access to thriving communities, Pilot Cove is the place.
My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pilot Cove. The Studio cabin we rented was the perfect option for us. It was so spacious, modern and clean. We were very impressed by the unique furniture and all of the small details of the unit. Being that we both love to cook we really appreciated the fact that there was a full kitchen. We also loved that the property is right at the entrance of Pisgah Forest and in very close vicinity to shops and grocery stores. Pilot Cove is the perfect place to go for an adventurous trip or a relaxing weekend getaway. We definitely will be back for many more trips.
I recently stayed at pilot cove and loved the environmental friendly community it presents. It offers great views of Pisgah Forest, privacy from other surrounding cabins, and great community features like hiking trails, flow tracks and pump tracks throughout property. They actually lead into Pisgah National Forest where you can hike to nearby waterfalls and popular trails. If you’re looking for a beautiful, cost efficient, alternative to traditional lodging, check out Pilot Cove!
Our extended family celebrated a wonderful Thanksgiving at Pilot Cove!! The cabins were so well-designed and beautiful, and the kitchens had everything we needed to prepare our feast. Lane and Beth were amazing hosts, and the caretaker, Sil, took care of every need we had -- from bringing folding tables for our Thanksgiving dinner on the back porch (18 of us fit!) to providing a first-aid kit when one of the kids scraped a knee! The trails on-site are beautiful and were super fun for the mountain bikers in the family. Great location, too. It's walking-distance from restaurants and a cute local brewery (more "in-town" than we had expected), but also directly adjacent to the entrance to Pisgah National Forest, where we did some beautiful waterfall hikes. THANK YOU, Pilot Cove, for a lovely stay. We absolutely will be back!
I got to experience my stay at Pilot Cove during a mountain bike trip with several others in October. Ride to the trails! I think our group had the entire place to ourselves. Each cabin is within a short walk to one an other and the amenities are just perfect. The cabins have pretty much everything one would need they are basically a full apartment. Parking, mud room, full kitchen, dining table, shower, bedrooms, washer and dryer, and a balcony. Each cabin even has a hammock if you want to set it up. Oh, and WiFi.
Our group used the amphitheater area for a catered event and though the construction for the seating wasn’t done during our stay, the fire pit and the stage were amazing. It was easy for the caterers to set up.
The location is excellent! Hub is practically next door and there are a few stores and restaurants all within walking distance if you didn’t feel like driving. My interactions with the owners and caretaker were great - they are such nice people! I would definitely return for my next trip to Brevard (or anywhere in the area).
Exceptional! They clearly know their target customers- everything we needed was provided. Any questions we could've had were addressed before we could even ask. Cabin was clean, modern, private... the staff even went out of their way to help me find some restaurants in the area to accommodate food allergies. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!
Pilot Cove is the ultimate cabin glamping destination in Western NC!! Beautifully designed and furnished cabins were a home away from home as I celebrated my daughter's wedding in Brevard. They may be small but the layout of the cabin space is superb...I could easily live in one! Located only minutes from Brevard and Pisgah National Forest, we were still afforded privacy and a quiet space that truly felt like we were "getting away from it all". Thank you Pilot Cove for the wonderful accomodations!
