Frequently Asked Questions

Pilot Cove was designed with location in mind. We are the closest lodging to Pisgah National Forest you can find without actually camping in the forest.  We are at the BASE of the mountains at 2200 feet elevation, bordered by Pisgah National Forest in a 64 acre wooded setting. 10 restaurants, 2 bike shops, a brewery, a tap room and Walmart are all within walking distance.  We are an 8 minute drive from the beautiful town of Brevard.  Our cabins are oriented for privacy and connection to the outdoors. If you are looking for long-range views and absolute seclusion, you should look on TOP of the mountains in an Airbnb. The trade off is you are typically a long way from anywhere on curvy, steep mountain roads.

Pilot Cove offers comfortable accommodations for travelers of all ages, interests, and activity levels. Guests are welcomed to utilize trails on-site, and encouraged to use bicycles as their primary mode of transportation to surrounding amenities and town (we’re right by the greenway!). If you prefer to drive, that’s fine too! All cabins feature private parking, and are accessible by car.

Minimum stay requirements are shown on our booking platform and these stay requirements vary by season.

The Pilot Cove property is essentially a part of Pisgah National Forest, we share a contiguous border for over a mile. When designing Pilot Cove, we went to great lengths to preserve the forest environment for guests to enjoy along with modern comforts and conveniences. Please understand that you may encounter mosquitoes, insects, and other wildlife around the cabins and on the trails. It is difficult for us to control all insects and occurrences in the natural environment, although we do all we can!

Check back soon for updates on our campground progress!
