Originally from Bucks County PA, I've lived in WNC since 2002 and a few other beautiful parts of the country before that; the mountains of Colorado, southern NJ near Cape May. The first two years here, my partner David and I renovated this awesome house and successfully had it open as a Bed and Breakfast and are now ready to open a room or two up again as sort of a "B" without so much of the "B" :) I've missed it but can't really open up fully as I'm working another job now and diving into my art ~ a full Bed and Breakfast requires full-time attention. I really enjoy B&B guests ~ certainly the most interesting and appreciative folks… so many great stories ~ I have old handmade paper journals filled with smile making memories, and now sweet reviews are filling up the pages of this virtual journal at Airbnb. :)
I'll be happy to help you with your plans while you're here. If you want, I'll share maps of the area & highlight things you might like ~ good hikes, vistas & waterfalls, drives, eateries, entertainment, art galleries/studios, etc.
