About the owner: We are Rod and Lisa Burch from Prosperity SC. Rod was born in Hayesville, attended school there and went to Young Harris and Limestone College, he also is a Navy veteran. Lisa was born in Columbia, SC, attended Chapin High School and Limestone College. We rescue Shih Tzus and currently have 4. We are both employed by a utility and are looking very forward to retiring to Lorelai's Lair!! Lisa and Rod are members of Prosperity Rescue Squad and Lisa's an EMT-I.
We also rescue Shih Tzu dogs, the four of them love the front and back porches and walking the quiet drive to the house.
Why the Owner Chose Warne: We frequently visit Hayesville where Rod grew up and his parents still live. Having rented homes there for the last couple years, we decided to buy our own and rent it when we can't be there. The area is beautiful and the people are very friendly. There is so much to do in the area, there just isn't enough time!!
I wish I were a painter to show the beauty of the area, or maybe even just a photographer. America the beautiful is the best way to describe the area.
