Testimonials

Just finished our second stay at Dogwoods.

We loved it...wife wants to buy the cabin!

One thing I really like is how quiet it is. Sleeping is absolutely wonderful. When we arrive here it always looks brand new. I don't know how they keep it so clean. Brevard is a great place to visit, there are so many things to do (with your dog).

We always go to Rocky's to eat...just try it, cheeseburgers and chocolate malts!

Dogwoods Retreat was very easy to work with. From start to finish, the vacation rental experience was perfect. It was really refreshing to see their attention to detail in the vacation property down to the quality sundries. Their properties are all dog-friendly and seeing certain things that worked nicely in their property inspired me to make some changes in our pet-friendly properties. I came away from the experience with a refreshed outlook on vacation property management.

Perfect Rental, Cozy & Modern | Three couples (and our fur babies) stayed in White Squirrel for a friends weekend getaway. I don't think we could have had a better time! The rental was impeccably clean, the layout was perfect, furniture was very comfortable (beds and dog beds included!), and everyone loved it. We went hiking with our pups and saw several of the waterfalls, visited downtown Brevard and toured the Oskar Blues brewery. We grilled on the charcoal grill and cooked every meal at the house. It truly was a perfect weekend. Thank you Nan & Will for the experience. We hope to return one day!

Awesome Doggie "Vacay"!

Jasmine, Lilly & family Thank You for an awesome "doggie" vacay!!! We stayed in the FIREFLY cabin and it was perfect for our needs...not to mention that it was absolutely beautiful!!! The fenced in back yard was a hit! We played ball every morning before eating breakfast on the back deck! Love, love, love the layout of how the porch, deck and back yard all connect! We felt relaxed letting our pups roam around and explore, knowing that they were safely fenced in at all times!AWESOME PLACE! We will visit again, soon!

Lisa N. - This Place is Phenomenal!

This place is phenomenal and on the TOP of my list of places to vacation at. I cannot say enough good things about DogWoods Retreat and its owners/operators, Nan & Will. If you are looking for a "real"  dog-friendly home-away-from-home then you are missing out if you don't stay here! The accommodations are top-notch and the little "extras" provided for your dogs make it that much more special. If I could rate DogWoods Retreat with 100 stars I would! Thank you Nan & Will for sharing this beautiful area with others!!!

Thanks for providing such an amazing place to ring in 2015 for our family.  Firefly was such a relaxing place to end the year and welcome in the new.  We loved that we were able to include our furry babies too!  I enjoyed our session and will look forward to more on our next visit.  This is the most relaxed I've seen my scaredy baby in ages. 

Thanks again, everything was fantastic!

Our family came to your lovely home to enjoy our holiday week together & for the scenery.  We were not disappointed!  We hike the Triple Falls & High Falls, what a beautiful place.  Our fur babies enjoyed the hike too.  We love how they have been welcomed to the Firefly cabin, in town, and on our hike at Oskar Blues Brewery :) We plan on returning for more hiking!  The Firefly cabin is beautiful and spotless!  Thank you for having us, we've enjoyed every minute!

Warm Regards

Teresa, Jim & "kids" (Rhett, Tara & Murphy)

This is our 2nd visit to DogWoods Retreat this year.  We absolutely love everything about this place!  We will be back as soon as we can - hopefully the beginning of May to see what spring is like here in the NC mountains.  There was a rainy day today and it was so relaxing to sit on the covered deck and watch the rain.  We will be back at least once a year and maybe more, if possible. 

Thank you so much for this awesome place you have created for dog lover's and their companions. I'm sure if our 3 could talk they'd say they love this place as much as we do, hate it when it's time to leave, and look forward to when we can return again.

We had an awesome time!  I'm so glad I found this place.  We will definitely be returning.  The dogs absolutely loved their visit to DogWoods Retreat.  They loved being able to run around in the huge wooded fenced lot & on both decks.  It is beautiful here and the "cabin" is perfect.  We enjoyed several hikes during our stay.  In DuPont State Forest we did the High Falls & Triple Falls hikes.  In Pisgah Natl Forest we did the Pink Beds hike.  I think the dogs enjoyed the hikes and all 3 were exhausted at the end of the day. :) 

We enjoyed shopping in Brevard - particularly at the toy store (for our grand kids) and Local Color and Bullwinkle's to name a few.  The bakery has yummy danish and scones and everything at Mayberry's is awesome.  We hated to leave DogWoods Retreat but are already talking about when to come back.  Thanks so much for creating such a wonderful place for us to bring our dogs.

Lisa, Jerry, Sutton & Lily F. - The Fire and Hot Tub Were Fab!

We read about DogWoods Retreat in Bark magazine.   We are very pleased with our stay.  The cabin is fabulous - we found ourselves not wanting to leave.  We hiked DuPont and Pisgah Forest.  Our dogs- a 3 year old German Wirehair and a 2 year old Golden loved the hikes, fenced yard and the loving from the community :).  We took a side trip to Highlands which was also a pretty area.  We boosted the economy at Quotations, Cherrywood (a great new store), soda shop and downtown cafe.  We are taking home pottery from Mud Dabbers and great memories.  We will "like" you on Facebook and tell our doggie friends to visit.

P.S. The fire, and hot tub were fab.  Everything we needed was here including gater :)  Felt like home!

Ellen G. - Thank You So Much For The Training!

Nan,

Sorry it took so long, life is busy back at home! 

I wanted to give you an update. Tabby continues to improve at home. And Lily (the 2-year-old) is on the same program now and showing great improvement. The situation with 5 dogs is much easier to deal with now that I don’t have to worry about Tabitha going off on the other dogs. And she’s a much happier dog now! I see a sweet side of her I haven’t seen since she was a puppy. It’s really wonderful.

I haven’t started working with her on walks with stranger dogs yet. There’s still some ground work to be done at home. But, other situations are being resolved that give me confidence we’ll be able to overcome her issues with other dogs on leash. She has a training class starting in a month, where she’ll be around other dogs so that’s our goal.

I just want to thank you so much for the training. Your insight, and tools and techniques that you brought to our situation, have been just what I was looking for. It’s so nice to be on the right track finally! Thank you.

I included a photo of Tabby and Guinness from our trip. I also attached a video of the two of them playing the last day we were there. Tabby and Guinness have never played together at home, so this was a drastic change. Tabby is being very submissive and Guinness isn’t humping her. So, big improvements. :)
