Interaction with guests
We live here most of the year and love having guests to share our home. We are happy to host local hikes and outings. We have pets and welcome your pets, too.
The Lodge is situated on a quiet, private road. The house itself is secluded and quiet. Most of the neighbors live here on a vacation basis. The few neighbors that are here full-time are warm, friendly, and very helpful.
Vehicles are essential in this mountainous area. There are tons of great scenic rides whether you're in a car or on a bike.
Other things to note
There is a 2-car garage available for your use. We provide tools and supplies for motorcycle maintenance. RV hook-ups are also available.
All we ask is that you keep your room and bathroom clean. We enjoy meeting new people who like to socialize with us and other visitors. Pets are allowed but they need to get along with our pets. No smoking in the house. Graham is a dry county so bring your own adult beverages.
I'm a veterinarian by trade. I retired from practice to found a wildlife rehabilitation center in Ontario, Canada. Once that endeavor was self-sufficient, my partner, Jeff and I retired to the mountains of western North Carolina. We both love hiking, enjoying nature, and riding our motorcycles on the scenic roads in this area. I now contribute to my community by providing veterinary care for lost and abandoned dogs and cats. I belong to 3 hiking clubs and am a trail maintainer for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. I write a pet column for the local newspaper. I also enjoy gardening, cooking, and spending time with my 3 dogs.
