Couples welcome but pets not welcome (long story) but we may make exceptions for a very experienced person. Property located 4.5 miles west of Hot Springs surrounded by the hiking/rafting options of Pisgah and Cherokee National Forests, the French Broad and Laurel Rivers, and the Appalachian Trail (goes down sidewalk). There are small grocery stores and 7 restaurants/take-out food options in town, just 8 minutes away from our place. 27 mins from Marshall, NC and Newport, TN and 47 mins from Asheville, NC.

Hi, my name is John. I live just north of Durham. I am self employed as a carpenter. I also grew up on a farm so I have plenty of knowledge in that area as well. If you would like to get in touch with me my email is silverlion0475@gmail.com.
