Secluded mountain home at 3800 ft in a hollow on 60 acres surrounded by the Pisgah Natl Forest. It's cool here when it's roasting in the Piedmont.
Things to do without getting in your car: hike to the mountain top, climb on big-as-a-house rock formations, challenging road cycling. Fish in our pond, let fido roam free.pick blueberries, listen to song birds & owls. Sit by a creek & read. Relax on the deck with a glass of wine & watch the sun set over the mountains. Look for deer and wild turkeys. Take a professionally guided photography tour.

20-30 minutes away: drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, go gem mining, hike the Appalachian Trail, go fly fishing with Rivers Edge Outfitters, visit Penland Gallery & take a tour of Penland School of Craft, visit TRAC Gallery, & artist studios, go golfing.
What you can’t do: easily connect to work and other people you need a vacation from.
I am a professional photographer with a studio in Bakersville, I primarily photograph art for the large artist community here and I also do portrait work. I share my 60 acres with my wife Allison. I am also an avid bicyclist (5000 miles in 2013)
I live on my 60 acres (in the front). We placed our cabin out of sight and sound with the intent to use it for family ( I have 10 sibs). In the mean time we thought it would be a great vacation rental as well. This has proven to be true due to the fun and pleasure of meeting people from all over the world. The Appalachian Mountains are unsurpassed in their beauty, peace and quiet. This area is home to the Penland School of Crafts, and world renowned artists.
First I'll describe my land: 60 acres surrounded by mountain and forest, very green in the summer, snow in the winter. There are 2 creeks that pass directly next to the cabin and a small waterfall outside the bedroom window. The view from the deck is pure rolling green landscape with a small pond (very meditative). The hiking trails start nearby on my property and snake through the mountains for miles. Bicyclists bring their road bikes for the challenge and beauty and some come to ride in the 'Roan Moan' century and metric century. Some folks just stay and hang out, never leaving once they get here. The driving routes are gorgeous, the Appalachian Trail is nearby as well as Blue Ridge Parkway.
My 60 acres is surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest which lends itself to complete quiet and privacy...This area is known for it's world class art (Penland School of Crafts), The Appalachian Trail and The Blue Ridge Parkway. 4 Chef owned restaurants and a small microbrewery with home made organic pizza.
