So lay back and take a deep breath at Shimer House. Whether just relaxing in wooded surroundings, lounging in the hot tub, or just meandering along picturesque streams, we are confident that your vacation at Shimer House will be full of lasting memories.
Spring is close at hand and it is time to schedule vacations. The Spring flowers will soon cover the area in color and beauty. The Mountains are coming alive with new growth. What a time to be in the Mountains
This area provides a combination of quietness and closeness to Asheville, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure and Hendersonville. The view from our property is one of the best in the area. The climate is nice most of the year with the four seasons to enjoy. We are also close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is a great place to see the mountains from. There are nice restaurants nearby and many things to do. This property is a one day drive from where we live full time (Florida)
The getting away from the sounds of traffic and City life is a big plus. I enjoy the birds and other animals that we sometimes see. (Deer, wild turkeys, Bear) and of course Bats at night in the Summer. I like the climate. Many times in the Summer we don't even need the air conditioner on. There is a fresh smell of woods and flowers.
