About Dale Justus

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.

Dale Justus purchased this house in 2007

Why Dale Justus chose High Country & Blue Ridge 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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Wonderful Experience...

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we needed. It took a day or two to realize we were disconnecting from our hectic schedules and constant attention to our devices. That being said, we embraced the entire experience. The house had everything we needed and we slept very well. The setting gives privacy with an awesome large back porch with dining area. The gas grill and firepit were a bonus.The owners checked in with us to be sure we didn't need anything. Upon arriving home, we realized that we left our favorite corkscrew that had sentimental value from a trip to Monte Carlo. The owners arranged for it to be delivered to us. We will book this one again.

Enjoyed our stay in the cabin. The location was great. We were close to lots of trails and could get into town in about 30 mins. Our son caught fish three days in a row right from the river near the cabin.

Great house for a group

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I stayed at the house for the weekend of my wedding. The house is really nice, was very clean, and the outdoor area is more extensive than I thought from the pictures. The kitchen and living area is very cozy and cute. We had a great time and would definitely stay again!
