Amazing place set up ideally for mountain bikers, however, you don't have to be. Just outside of the main street location, it's tucked away in a remote feeling area. The staff is amazing, the communication exceeded expectations, and accommodations were new and well appointed. For the bikers, they have a hose out front and a mud room to store your belongings. They also have rather large decks for either hanging out, hammocks, bike storage, etc. lastly, full kitchen and a great room for hanging out. Highly recommend Pilot Cove!
Nice new cabin's, ours was a studio. The parking was too short for my truck so they let me park in the extra space next to me as it was not being used by the occupants. Found a large number of mosquitoes in the space upon arrival. Very easily accessible to the surrounding areas, highly recommend especially for the cost.
Our family recently stayed at the cabins at Pilot's Cove and found them to be exceptional. The location was convenient to mountain bike trails, waterfall hikes, breweries.... and white squirrels. The cabins were clean and very well kept up. Each cabin had it's own parking place and a safe place to lock bikes. They offered so many great details that set them apart from any other place we have stayed - including a hammock, local coffee, and a refillable growler from the local brewery. We would definitely recommend this cabin to any family staying in the Brevard area.
Simply amazing, I sincerely hope Pilot Cove can keep up this standard. They have thought of everything. In unit washer and dryer, linens, towels, even pods for the washer, this place is made to enjoy. Close to all sorts of things. I am a mountain biker, but this trip I didn't even bring my bike. Went with my wife and three boys all under ten. We aren't mountain granola vegans either, but all of us agree this was easily a top 3 family vacation of all time, directly as a result of Pilot Cove's supreme quality and cleanliness. I highly recommend.
Excellent overall! Our sole complaint is the quality of the bedding. The mattress squeaked and was real soft i.e offered no support for the back and showed its age...unless the quality was a factor. Otherwise location, furnishings and prompt service for a problem with A/C were all good and appreciated..
I wish I could give this place more the 5 stars. I loved everything about our 2 bedroom cabin. It was super clean and just the right amount of room. Even though there is only 1 bathroom the layout is perfect for more than one person. The location is amazing for whatever you would like to do. Close to trails, water activities, dining and shopping. I have lived in the mountains in NC and traveled all over this area and I can assure you this is the place to stay. I will be going back again. I loved the treehouse feel and the hammock was a nice touch. The only suggestion I have is if you have a sensitive to cleaners let them know. The smell when we first arrived was strong from the cleaning products.
Our stay at Pilot Cove exceeded our expectations. The cabin was beautiful and spotless upon check-in. We spent lots of time on the deck, which provided privacy and serenity. The location was prime and the staff was helpful when we requested an air mattress for our son. We will definitely be returning to Pilot Cove.
The location was perfect for us, just a short drive from Asheville Airport.
The next day did some hiking and found some wonderful waterfalls.
The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. My morning yoga on the back porch was an added bonus. A perfect stay for exploring and enjoying the great outdoors.
A great place to stay when you want to utilize all of what Pisgah has to offer. The cabin was incredibly clean and modern. Fast WIFI in the middle of the forest. Comfortable beds and nice amenities. You really couldn’t ask for much more, and they allow dogs. We really couldn’t be more happy with the lodging and experience provided.
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).
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!
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!
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.
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.
My husband and I loved our stay at Pilot Cove! The “extras” did not go unnoticed either-hammock, make up towel, lantern, blankets that were great for porch sitting. We also cooked breakfast each morning and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend for a get away!read more
Definitely will be back! Great cabin, great location. Very easy booking/check in and out. Well designed and nice furnishings... very clean and has everything you could possibly need for a night or a week. Bed was comfortable. The porch is huge and the best part of the cabin. Don’t hesitate to book, especially if you are spending time in the pisgah forest... can’t get any closer.read more
We just spent Labor Day weekend at Pilot cove. Very nice, modern cabin. Super comfortable beds. MT biking a short bike ride away. The breweries and food trucks were amazing near The Hub. We asked for a late checkout so we could ride again on our last day and Lane was accommodating. We will be back!read more
I’m not a cyclist, but I was aware of Pilot Cove through family. I just wanted a quiet weekend in the mountains, away from noise, traffic, a mini-retreat. I made a three day reservation for some much needed self care time. Lane and Beth assigned me to one of the upper cottages. Check-in was completely stress-free. The kitchen was nicely stocked and even included pods for the laundry and the dishwasher. Staying in the cottage was like being in a tree house, simply by the way each house is placed on the lot. I had a complete sense of privacy while at the same time knowing there were people around. The bed was exquisitely made and as comfortable as any I have ever slept in. The location is within 5 minutes of Brevard city proper, a quaint, lovely little town with restaurants, The famous toy store, OP Taylor, and any number of interesting Stores in which to browse. Asheville is within a short drive. I spent the day there going to the Arboretum, Malaprops, and Urban Dharma. I will travel this way again and have already recommended it to my friends who might need a rest in the forest where stillness is the prize.read more
Great location! We enjoyed hiking on the property and appreciated the convenience to all of the Pisgah sights nearby (as well as the BiLo grocery store and Walmart). The deck was nice and we all had fun with the hammock. We were lucky, too, that our cabin led out to one of the fire pits with a picnic table. Bring bug spray and/or you might want to bring some citronella to keep mosquitoes off of you on the deck (or get something from Walmart, like we did.) We opted for the 2 bedroom and were glad we did.read more
We just stayed at Pilot Cove for 2 nights. It was a great stay. The cabin was clean and comfortable and well designed. We enjoyed the trail hike (pretty steep) and sitting on the deck relaxing. We also loved having a washer dryer. This is a perfect place to stay and in a really convenient location. We will be back next year hopefully for longer.read more

We stumbled across Pilot Cove when a hurricane cancelled our beach trip last fall. We love it!!! It has become our mountain retreat. The cabins are perfect and we enjoy wasting away the day on the porch. Enjoyed some fly fishing in the nearby Pisgah Forest this trip and spent the evenings wandering around Brevard. Honestly haven’t had a bad meal here! We’ll be back!read more
Pilot Cove is a great location to escape the heat and congestion of Hot'Lanta. The cabins are spacious and secluded with the the best amenities and design of any place that we have stayed. Pilot Cove's location allows easy access to Brevard, Asheville and the Pisgah Forest. We highly recommend it to you and your family when considering your next get away whether it be for hiking, biking, sight seeing or as your new favorite place to relax and enjoy nature.read more
Pilot cove was wonderful! I was fortunate enough to get to stay on two occasions this summer and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Cabins are wonderfully appointed and organized, clean, and have a fantastic deck! Plan to stay here whenever I can when I’m brevard!read more
Fantastic location and accommodations for our weekend of outdoor fun in and around Brevard. Easy check in, awesome deck with Adirondack chairs and hooks to hang hammock (one was provided), well appointed kitchen. We will definitely return and highly recommend.read more
I actually won a two-night stay (on Facebook) and decided to use it for my birthday last weekend. My kids (aged 21 to 10) and I LOVED Pilot Cove! It really couldn’t have been more perfect. The cabin was immaculate and had everything we needed. Even though we were minutes from restaurants and stores, when you were on the back deck, all you saw and heard was nature. The kids loved the hammock that was provided with the cabin. We had a great time riding on the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking, and exploring nearby waterfalls, and then slept like babies in the comfortable beds. I would recommend Pilot Cove to anybody and I know that we will be back!read more
I love the LOCATION and overall modern feel of the cabins. They were the perfect home base for adventure. I appreciated the ease of check in and out, and that our cabin was pet friendly. We love having our dogs with us and need to have a cool place for them during the heat of the day. I will absolutely book again!read more
