As my husband and I grew up, our families often made trips to the mountains sometimes just to buy locally grown apples. As children we loved to hike in the woods and I especially loved seeing the deer, chipmunks and other wildlife. As we grew up we knew that finding a home to purchase was in our future.
My husband and I chose the Blue Ridge Mountains, specifically Chimney Rock, NC area, because over the last 30 years, it has been the area that we would frequent to relax and enjoy nature. We always wanted a place of our own and purchased the original home in the mid 80's, then late in the 1990's we added on and did a major refurbish. The people in the area are very friendly and welcome strangers very easily. Also, being outdoor spirits, we had so much to do in such a small space. Often times, we brought our boat and used Lake Lure for skiing when our children were young. Our children/grandchildren also love the mountain activities in the Chimney Rock area.
