About Jim Archambault

I am from New England and have lived in CT, MA, VT, and NH. I have now lived on the West coast of Florida for many years. After a while of living here, I longed again for the hills. Giving myself the limit of a 10-hr. drive, I found the ideal location in Rutherfordton, NC. It has everything I wanted...mountains, hills, northern plants and flowers, lakes, rivers, parks, antique shops, shopping malls, book stores, historic homes and much much more...It has it all!

I spend many of my waking moments in Florida wishing I were in North Carolina and get there as often as I can.

Jim Archambault purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Jim Archambault chose Rutherfordton

Scenery, change of seasons, comfortable weather, amenities that the area offers.

What makes this cabin unique

Peace and Quiet. Area attractions. Seasonal availability.

View from the loft outside and into the living room. For those who want to bring a dog, the deck and porch are gated.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was perfect. The gate for the dog meant she could stay on the deck with us. The office space on the lower level and WiFi allowed us to do work that needed to be done even while on vacation. The view is spectacular, the area is very quiet and peaceful, and the deer in the morning are welcome guests. So many places and things to do in the vicinity. Thanks for making Overlook so warm and friendly.
