Apartment is down a path to the guests keyless entrance, which is down a slight incline. Path is uneven so please be careful. Guests have their own patio with a gas grill, table/chairs, and rocking chairs (not available during the winter) to relax maybe have your meals outside. The main road is not far from here so the traffic can be heard. The apartment is cozy and has a space heater in the winter and a new portable AC for the summer. You can sit in the living area and look out the 3 big windows and watch birds, deer, and other flora and fauna. There is a galley kitchen off the living area.

Hi my name is Carol. David, my co-host and I moved from CT to N.C. July 2019. David is retired and I am semi-retired. We both wanted a change and Western NC beckoned to both of us. It took us over a year of looking at over 100 houses to find this fantastic house. It was perfect for what we wanted. It had plenty of land for gardens, a shop for David and the neighbors were not right on top of us. We moved in and then got the apartment ready for an Airbnb and opened September 2019. We have planted two vegetable gardens, an herb garden and have blueberries, raspberries, black berries and a few fruit trees. There is also 4 Honey bee hives we have just started that is not near the guests. We have deer that will be on property at different times. David, Kady the dog, Callie the cat and I absolutely love the area and all it has to offer and we continue to look forward to hosting guests.
