Aimee, myself and I and our 12 year old son Jeremy have lived here in the Western NC mountains for the last 5 years. We could not imagine a more beatiful place to raise our child. The combination of great weather (4 seasons but a short mild winter), friendly people and the incredible outdoors make it unbeatable. Their is an extensive range of outdoor activities in addition to all the horse trails and the Asheville restaurants, breweries and arts scene make it an ideal vacation destination. We welcome you come stay at our ranch.
