How Pleasant Bank came to be: Sixty years ago my father Ernest was the ‘old man’, now as things go I am the ‘old man’. I was raised on the farm here on the river, with fond memories of hunting and catching loads of catfish from a flat bottom boat on the river, a lot of hard work with many good times. I now have many stories to tell and, a good knowledge of the history of the area going all the way back to around the 1800s, when the first owners were here. The name Pleasant Bank comes from the name of the old ‘drover’s inn’ once located on the property. We chose this name, when we decide to build a rental on the property in hopes that others could enjoy the surroundings just as me and my ‘old man’ has done for nearly a century.
What Do we have to Offer: In addition to the Log House there are many things to see and do around the area. You won’t find the quick food shops, you see all around the country, but there are several good down home restaurants and some very good steak and fish restaurants in the area. You may want to travel to such places as the world famous natural mineral springs and spa, the Appalachian Trail, ski slopes, River fishing and fly fishing, world famous Biltmore house and miles of hiking scenic trails, white water rafting, and biking. Whatever you do it will be remember for a long time.
About the rental: Made of logs, sleeps six, with air condition, Hot tub, full kitchen, all sheets and linens furnished, all you need to do is come prepared to enjoy yourself. The Rental has private access to the river, for fishing, boating, and observation deck for relaxing. Come and enjoy the farm with an orchard fenced in from the abundant wildlife and produce being raised on the farm. I am sure; you will enjoy the area as much as the ‘old man’ of yesteryear and the ‘old man’ of today has done. May God Bless.
