About Carie Lopatka
We are high school science teachers and fell in love with the NC Mountains because of the numerous year round activities, cool summer weather and availability of winter sports. Our home is secluded yet we can get to Boone, Blowing Rock and West Jefferson in no time. We love the nature that being secluded provides and have purchased the property surrounding the house. We chose this location for it's high elevation yet it's ease of accessibility in the winter. This home is our relief from the hustle and bustle of city life and is very comfortably furnished for the ultimate relaxation. We especially enjoy the hospitality of the local people and we eventually want to spend our retirement years in the area. The history of the area is fascinating with Civil War Battles, NASCAR and Appalachian culture. Every time we visit we always find a new adventure, festival or site we haven't yet seen.
