We need to move for an extended period of time to live with our aging family. What we are looking for is an individual, couple or family for a long-term house/homesteading arrangement. To make it clear from the start, we are not interested in selling our land. Instead, upon our return, we are willing to explore cohabitation possibilities. Our land consists of 11 off-grid acres (no electric or running water) in Western NC, about an hour from Asheville. There is a partially finished small cabin, woodshed, and outhouse. There is a spring setup that runs about 10 months out of the year and can likely be improved. A creek also runs through the property. There is an established garden space and plenty of room to expand.

Let's talk about what we can work out.

Larry,

Thanks for responding. To clarify what I stated in the original post, we are making our land and house available for a long-term stay. The exact terms will be worked out with the individual(s) who desire to live here. We are not paying a salary.

Hi Jason,
My husband and I have three small children and have wanted to start our own homestead for sometime. What kind of care are you looking for your homestead? Would it be a situation where my husband would be able to work outside of the homestead as well, in order to bring in some income? Or is your homestead a full time job in itself?
Thanks!
Jenna
