I was born and raised in the Hendersonville area of NC, and have spent nearly all my life in the state. My favorite part of the state has always been and forever will be, the mountains.

When my wife and I started our search for a mountain retreat, we visited and fell in love with the Mount Mitchell area early on. After a number of visits and after looking at what seemed like 'hundreds' of potential places in this area, we fell in love with the River's Edge property the moment we saw it.
Our immediate and extended family, and grandchildren have spent hours of enjoyment in this house making unforgettable memories that included a White Christmas, my oldest grandson's first trout on a fly rod, and countless Thanksgiving get together.
My grandchildren like this area so much, that they bring a few friends each year as part of their birthday, and spend a long weekend fishing, tubing, swimming, and horseback riding. It's become a tradition with them. You know it's a special place if it can get teenage boys to give up cell phones and Xbox for a weekend.
This property holds a special place for me, and I hope you will find that it does the same for you and your family.
Boy, where do I start? We fell in love with this place for so many reasons:
River front - 300 feet of private river frontage makes for awesome fishing, tubing, and wading. Just down the river from our house, the Mount Mitchell Golf course beings to maintain the river. Although a special permit is required to fish there, that area has some world class, trophy brown and rainbow trout.
Relaxation - This is an area and house where you can choose just how 'engaged' you want to be. Should you decide, you can step away from technology for a bit and embrace the outdoors, of, if you prefer stay connected. I should warn you though, you won't find a better house for a nice afternoon nap with the sound of the river running gently in the background.
Activities - There are so many unique and interesting activities to do in this area that it really never gets boring.
Master shower - The master shower is certainly not anything that you'd expect in a mountain getaway. Wall to ceiling Italian tile with a sitting area and dual European shower heads.
