Directly bordering the vast Pisgah National Forest, Pilot Cove offers a hospitality experience unlike anything existing in Western North Carolina or the Southeastern USA. Modern 'cabins' with custom finishes were designed for guests to interact with the surrounding forest and mountain views, each oriented to ensure guest privacy.
Catering to outdoor recreation tourists, guests enjoy direct access to Pisgah National Forest's renowned trails, roadways, rock walls, and trophy waters. For cyclists, the cabins offer ride in / ride out access to hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails, also roadways for world-class road cycling. While each cabin feels a world apart in the forest, multiple restaurants, grocery stores, bike shops, outfitters, breweries, and shopping are all located within walking distance. Brevard NC, named one of the best small towns in America, is located a short 5 minute drive away. The bohemian city of Asheville is 30 miles away.

Each living room features sectional couch with pull out beds, local photography of Pisgah National Forest landmarks, and rug made from recycled plastic bottles. Custom coffee tables and entertainment consoles were created from local timber harvested by the artisans. HVAC mini splits heat and cool the interior spaces.
Each cabin features a mudroom entry with concrete floor, washer, dryer, reclaimed wood coat rack, and locker storage for guest use.
Each cabin features a fully stocked kitchen with cherry cabinetry, rainforest green granite countertops, and whirlpool stainless appliances. Created from ambrosia maple, the live edge kitchen table was designed to be movable, allowing guests to dine either inside or al fresco on the covered back deck in nice weather.

Living spaces were designed to allow for guests to interact with the surrounding forest. The shed roof design allows for light-filled interior spaces while allowing for complete guest privacy. Cabins feature pivoting flatscreen TVs, cable with 300+ channels, 5G wi-fi, and bluetooth speakers for entertainment.
Interior of efficiency cabin. Headboard and bed frame created from reclaimed barn wood sourced locally in Brevard NC. Windows were strategically placed to frame trees and foster a connection to the outdoors. Every cabin is furnished with custom artwork, photography, and furniture created by local artisans from Transylvania County, NC.
Expansive covered back decks provide an enjoyable outdoor space for guests to enjoy in every season.
While clustered closer together for efficient site design, all cabins were strategically placed for maximum guest privacy.

Long term plans on the 124 acre property include 50 cabins, a glampground with yurts and lean to shelters, a flow trail system for mountain biking and hiking, and an amphitheater for weddings and special events.
