Year Purchased: 2004

About: We were best friends in high school in Ohio and fortunately re-connected here in North Carolina 30 years later. Jane first discovered Asheville and Western North Carolina in the 1970’s, drawn to the beauty of the area and the wild character of the mountains. John was living in New York and working with non-profits to protect over 20,000 acres of land for parks and trails. An avid rock climber, John also fell in love with the southern mountains. In 2003, we heard about the land through a friend whose family had owned it for nearly 100 years. The land was in the heart of Hickory Nut Gorge and had not been occupied for over 60 years. We discovered a wild jewel with tumbling waterfalls along the tumultuous Hickory Nut Creek, overgrown stone walls of a farmhouse and the ruins of an old gristmill. We immediately fell in love for the place. Over the next 10 years, our vision for the land has continually expanded from conserving the wild lands to creating a sustainable community with organic gardens and orchard, hiking trails, renewable energy from the sun and water, green-solar homes and the Laughing Waters Retreat Center.

Why Asheville:
We don’t feel we 'own' this land. Rather, we feel more aligned as stewards, here to protect it. We are full of wonder and awe at nature’s intricate beauty. Living here is about discovering mysteries and miracles: the springtime sprouting shoots on the forest floor, the blooming of delicate wildflowers, the soaring trees spreading green leaves in a summer canopy, the magical transformation into vibrant fall colors, and the reappearance of the distant mountain vistas in winter. We have kept the most special places wild for all to enjoy: the cascading streams, tumbling waterfalls, sheer cliffs, and distant vistas. Residents and visitors can enjoy miles of hiking trails on our land, in the adjoining 600 acres of the Florence Nature Preserve, and down the gorge in Chimney Rock State Park. If you love the outdoors, this is magical place!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are deep in the heart of the Hickory Nut Gorge, a steep valley carved out of the mountains starting at the continental divide dropping down to Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure. From your cottage overlooking two beautiful waterfalls, you can hike up to the top of Little Bearwallow Mountain through 200 acres of natural forest with amazing views. The cottage is part of the Laughing Waters Retreat Center in Hickory Nut Forest. This sustainable eco-community includes organic gardens and apple orchard, conserved lands, renewable energy, and solar-green homes. Guests are welcome to hike, swim, bird watch, enjoy the gardens, go mountain biking, or just relax on the deck and listen to the sound of the rushing water. Enjoy dining in Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, or make your own feast in the cottage kitchen. And we are only 25 minutes from all the music, restaurants and culture in Asheville. Come experience a special place for a peaceful, quiet retreat in these beautiful sacred mountains!
