House in Waynesville, USA

Our fully updated log home is the best of both worlds!  You can choose to recreate in leisure spending time in our garden's nooks or on porches gazing out to the distance, or watching the butterflies make a living off our flowering bushes. We love waking up to the sunrise, listening quietly to the katydids in late summer and the fragrance of early spring when honeysuckle, blackberry and laurel bloom. Even doing the dishes is a joy. The kitchen sink overlooks our garden and Hazelwood and beyond to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The  town of Waynesville is the Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains in Western North Carolina.  The house is only two miles from the center of town, less than 15 minutes from our house to the Blue Ridge Parkway which offers beautiful scenery, wonderful hiking trails to many gorgeous waterfalls and many cultural and historic attractions on or near the parkway, and a 30 minute drive to Asheville, NC, the Biltmore Estate and many other attractions.  Also nearby are several golf courses, fishing streams, white water rafting, and kayaking.  Within 30 minutes you can be in the Great Smoky Mountains for even more adventure including the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indian town of Cherokee, its museum and summer show Unto These Hills are worth visiting. If casinos are of interest, the Harrah's in Cherokee offers gambling and fine dining opportunities. Theater and the arts are big in Western North Carolina. Waynesville's Haywood Regional Arts theater is a premier semi-professional local theater offering high quality dramas, comedies and musicals. The Flatrock Playhouse and Carl Sandburg home are within an hour's drive. Thomas Wolfe's home was Asheville and is open to visitors.

Our home is built of logs and has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths a fire place, and loads of porches from which you can gaze at the mountains, stargaze and barbeque with friends.  There is a full laundry room, cable TV, wireless internet and the kitchen has been fully updated.

Our 2 cats are indoor/outdoor and only ask to be fed. We can hire a person to clear the litter boxes daily and coordinate with you for timing if you'd like.  We will be glad to exchange our car as well.
