Perched peacefully on the side of a mountain, the home is a whimsical shed roof house with plenty of windows, high and low.
There is access to hiking trails right outside the door! Plus many in the immediate area. (See map) A Hot tub on the deck for your pleasure and natural beauty right out your doorstep! In the 12 acres, my home is situated providing a myriad of lovely views, from every side! See the photos!
My home is full of color and light. In the past it I has been home for me and my 3 sons My place rests about 2,800.00 ft and is about 10 degrees cooler than down in the valley!
Because it is shed roof designed, I have no duct work.
I don't have vented air conditioning yet every room has a ceiling fan. Plus I also have the mountain breeze to make it work! Along with a lovely intimate deck under the shade of a dogwood tree that hangs over the hot tub.
In case it gets cloudy and a little chilly... For heat, I offer a beautiful Vermont Casting wood stove in the kitchen and den combo. I will have the stove set up with kindling and wood, ready for use.!
All of the house is yours. It is my home, so I may have some of my stuff, but it will be tucked away.
Will leave plenty of accents that make it unique and you will enjoy!
There will be amenities... and you are welcome to use anything that you need! Dish soap, laundry soap, herbs, spices, baggies, Tupperware, coffee, any food you fill game to try! I will cue you into stopping at my store in nearby Fairview, Trout Lily Market & Deli, and also stopping at the "self serve" stand at Flying Cloud Farms on the way, where you can pick from fresh locally grown produce and flowers!
If you end up using "copious amounts of anything,' you can reimburse me in the tip jar I will leave out.
I am willing to give privacy if needed and to give help with your planning and offer "jewels" of the local area, because it has been my home and my love for 30 years!
I should be nearby and available. If not my youngest son Chris will be on call!
I also own Trout Lily Deli and Market, which is just in Fairview, just 15 minutes towards Asheville. I will gift some of my local crafted products for your stay!

When you first turn onto the private road that leads up to my house , you will ford a very shallow creek (4-6" deep), Go slow, The road is gravel and one lane.
I have only other 5 neighbors that use the road, so it is rarely an issue to squeeze by another vehicle going the other way, but it can be done!
The road winds up the mountain side for 8/10 mile. If your car is low to the ground, drive with care! So far, no has had no problem getting in and out!
The private road is now well marked with my house number along with my neighbors. (I am just beyond her house) I am 418.
