We live on this property in a separate house and have a small 7 acre farm. We raise llamas, donkeys, and fruit and vegetables. We also have 2 horses, 23 laying hens, 2 dog, 4 cats, and fish in the pond. This is a lovely rural community that is close enough to town to give you the best of both worlds.
The 'cottage' is a 1400 sq. ft. home built on a small hill with garage underneath it. Access to the home can be up the front stairs, up the inside stairs on foot or on electric chair that glides to the top of the stairs. A car can also be driven to the back of the cottage with access up 2 steps to the second bedroom and the rest of the house.
There is a hammock under the screened porch for relaxing, reading and listening to the birds. We have walking trails on the adjoining 30 acres, as well as a picnic table in the woods. There is a fire pit next to the pond for bonfires. The sky at night is filled with stars and the sounds of hoot owls. Deer and turkeys visit the hills. We are close to famous motorcycle roads that wind through the mountains. Well behaved pets are welcome, but we do ask that they do not get on furniture and are crated when you leave the home.

We love the mountains of Western North Carolina and the lifestyle of living on a small farm, yet being close to the town of Waynesville and the city of Asheville. We feel that we have a responsibility to care for all of our animals and the land in a respectful manner. We make everyone welcome who visits here. We want them to love it as we do.

It just happened, as we wanted this property to live on, and the second house was a bonus.
