We live in the foothills of the Blueridge Mountains in North Carolina. We have a large blended family with 6 children ranging from 18 to 2. The last four (who still travel with us) all girls 13, 7, 6 and 2!! When we travel, we like to stay in homes or condos...there never seems to be enough space in hotels! We love to feel more like locals then the tourist and staying in rustic cabins to cozy ski chalets gives us that opportunity. I haven't found a place yet that my 6 year old hasn't declared that she will grow up and live there someday! I know this is because of the wonderful hospitality and warmth these private homes provide! We found this site recently and look forward to exploring its uniqueness more...it sounds like it was made for us! We look forward to possibly staying in your home someday and adding it to my girls "list" of wonderful places in the world to someday live!
