I am originally from Charlotte and discovered Lansing NC when the wonderful folks of Lansing Rocks purchased "Fort Awesome" back in 2006. I was thrilled to be a part of the official opening of Fort Awesome as a hostel and happily hosted it during the summer of 2012, but when the opportunity arose to rent and hopefully purchase the house that has now become the Lost Province, I simply couldn't resist! The vibe I cultivate here is open, relaxed and fun with a strong focus on art, creativity, sustainability, and the broadening of perspectives through communication and understanding. Although I do like to play hard, I also work very hard toward my goals for the future of this place - I plan to create an organic farm right here on the property to provide fresh produce, eggs, milk, and meats, including a beehive, chicken coop, and of course, heirloom vegetable and herb gardens. I also intend on using the large basement as an art studio for guests and local residents to feel free to create and experiment, as well as a space to offer classes and workshops on primitive arts like candle making, soap making, canning, organic gardening, DIY organic cleaning products, wine-making, beekeeping, foraging, etc. (Any assistance in these endeavors is welcome and appreciated!) The Lost Province will do everything possible to work with and promote local farmers, artists, musicians, craftsmen, and proprietors of all manner of businesses. I must admit I'm partial to New River Winery, Pie On The Mountain, Phoenix Mountain Arts, (both a short walk downtown) Phipps Country Store (about 4 miles up the road), and especially Rose Mountain Farms (Ann Rose farms the best local meats and produce around). There are frequent opportunities to attend local events, annual festivals and social gatherings, whether they are here in Lansing or in West Jefferson or Boone. I truly look forward to meeting and hosting interesting, friendly, like-minded guests just like you!
