“This property was extremely clean and well-managed. Kristy was very helpful and quick to respond to all questions. The view from the property was super.” – The Ruffins, September 2020
“The staff at Deer Ridge Property Management were friendly and helpful when we made our reservation. The Oak Cottage was one of the best places we have ever stayed! The home has high-end finishes, comfortable furniture and a great mountain view. If you need more than one cottage, there is another cottage right next door as well as one right across the street. The neighborhood is only about 10-15 minutes to Brevard and the Pisgah National Forest, so it is very convenient.” – Greg, February 2020

“Our 2nd visit to Sutton Knob. We love these homes, but we had a few issues with Oak Cottage, otherwise it would have been Excellent. Beautiful homes and Mountain Views. Deer Ridge does a great job as property mgr and the rental & check in process is so easy. We’ll be back to stay at Chinquapin.” – Lori, November 2018
“We loved our time there – the fabulous view, the non ye-old mountain decor, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the screen porch, the fireplace, the layout and the fully equipped kitchen all made for an excellent stay.” – Celia, October 2018
“The view from the house is amazing. We arranged our day so we were home before sunset. The perfect ending to our day of hiking is sitting on the porch with a glass of wine watching the sunset over the mountains.
We built a fire in the fireplace which gave the house a magical romantic feeling. It is a perfect way to experience a mountain house in the fall. I love this house and can’t wait to come back again.” – The Fobbens, October 2018
“We had a great stay at Oak Cottage! The cabin was clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Plus the views were awesome! Working with Deer Ridge was pleasant as well. They took the time to help us find the perfect cabin for our stay and were very friendly and welcoming. The management team even left flashlights in every room for a storm that was in the forecast during our visit. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again! – The Smiths, October 2018
“The house was wonderful and new with an incredible view. This is my first visit to this part of the country and I was impressed with the beauty of the scenery and the friendliness of the people.

“Another great stay at The Oak Cottage! My husband and I, along with our two Airedale Terriers, introduced our friends who were visiting from Scotland to the Brevard area and we all agree that it is five stars plus! Took lots of photos of white squirrels, had a great lunch and tour at Sierra Nevada Brewery and finished off the weekend with a delicious Easter brunch at Jaimie’s in Brevard!” – Maeve, April 2018

“The entire stay was fantastic! It’s a beautiful house with a great view. We’ve been renting for vacations in NC for 20 years, since we moved here, and this is the best one ever! Deer Ridge is one of the best rental agencies we’ve worked with. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and they make you feel that customer service is not just an empty promise.” – Tom & Diane, May 2016
“Amazing views! Also a quality home that was not only beautiful but very comfortable with space for everyone! Also Deer Ridge makes things easy!” – Jennifer, July 2016

“We spent a week during Christmas. We found Oak Cottage to be spacious and very clean. We had beautiful mountain views and enjoyed the wood burning fireplace. The town of Brevard is so close that we enjoyed exploring it and trying new places to eat. The week was rainy but that did not put a damper on our stay. We would love to make it a yearly tradition!” – The Palmers, January 2016
“The house was beautiful and so clean. Wonderful view.” – Melinda, September 2015
“This is one of the favorite homes we have rented for our vacations. Beautiful home with great views. Location perfect for all our daily adventures-Brevard, Pisgah, Dupont, Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. Highly recommended!” – Karen & Chuck, August 2015
“The Oak Cottage is a really lovely, well planned and furnished property. My husband and I, along with our two Airedale Terriers, enjoyed a wonderful 8 night visit and wished we could have stayed longer! The views from the cottage are great and the screened porch was a great place to hang out and enjoy the cool mountain air. Brevard has a lot to offer, in fact we enjoyed the town so much we think it will be the perfect place to retire.
The staff at Deerridge were very pleasant and easy to deal with and we look forward to a future stay at the Oak Cottage.” – Maeve, August 2015

“Our family has rented properties in the WNC mountains two or three times a year for more than ten years. Oak Cottage is the best property yet, bar none! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house and its location, particularly its proximity to town, could not be be better. And the view is incredible!
The family and our dogs had the best time enjoying the porch, hiking the trails, and exploring generally. We did not turn on the television the whole weekend. We plan to return soon” – David, May 2015
“We had 4 adults and 1 dog. The house was beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. There were dog dishes, bowls, and towels and even a dog cookie waiting for “Aspen” on our arrival. The sunsets were amazing. Walking to the top of the Knob every morning and walking the trails during the day and not having to worry about traffic with the dog was great.
The response time for our concerns and questions was amazing by the staff of Deer Ridge. We arrived 1 day early and because the house was not rented, we called the office (on a weekend) and Sandy was so accommodating to get us into the house a day early.
There were landscapers and electricians working on the house next door and the first day the “boss” knocked on our door and asked if we were being “disturbed” and if so they would stop working. Wow! Of course they were not disturbing us but when does that ever happen?
Amazing views from the house. Screen porch was awesome and would be very nice to use in the summertime.
We even took time out of our busy days, just to find your rental office to meet you in person. Thanks for all you did for us. We will be back again.” – The Herders, March 2015
“We stayed at Oak Cottage over Thanksgiving weekend 2014. Most of the other rentals that we considered were already booked. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I contacted Deer Ridge Property Management in hopes that there might be a home left in the Brevard area. I am really glad I did. The property in question was brand new construction. Kristy Kolisch-Harris went above and beyond to get the house ready for our arrival. The customer service and professionalism exhibited by the people at Deer Ridge Property Management was second to no other that we have rented from before. A sincere thank you from our family.
About the house: Oak Cottage is nothing short of amazing. The drive up to the cottage is an entertaining switchback climb up from the valley floor. It takes about 10-15 minuted from downtown Brevard. There is a very nice double car garage to park in. One of my favorite memories of our entire stay is opening the front door the first time. The house instantly exceeded all expectations. Full stone fireplace, gleaming hardwood floors, granite counter tops, all add to the appeal and beauty of the house. Nothing, however compares to the endless views out of the beautiful windows on the back of the house. We have stayed at many different places over the years. In my humble opinion, the mountain views at Oak Cottage equals or tops all of the others that I have seen.
This was our second trip to Brevard in as many months. We went to back to Brevard to explore the downtown area, trails, and waterfalls. However, I found myself not wanting to leave this house. It has everything one would need to settle in and have a wonderful stay. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need to cook/bake with. The furniture is much nicer than what we have experienced in other vacation rentals. The bathrooms are very well thought out. The main bedroom offers the same amazing view as the living area. There was even firewood left for us to enjoy.
I highly recommend Oak Cottage. It is an exceptional vacation rental to base your explorations of the surrounding area in. Enjoy.” – The Stubbs, November 2014
