                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My prior experience as an award-winning publisher/editor of a parenting magazine, gave me lots of experience for evaluating and reviewing what makes a place truly 'family-friendly'. My goal is to help you create a fun and relaxing experience that will give lasting memories for you, your family and friends. From stocking the cabin with indoor and outdoor games, to gathering walking sticks, clearing a trail to the tree line for you to hike up the mountain, to providing binoculars.....your comfort and enjoyment are my top priority. I want your visit to be one you will always remember. And, I am not just an 'expert' in 'family-friendly' You will love the romance and ambiance that has been created for those special getaways. Top it off with my Romance Package -- a bottle of wine, chocolates and bath salts with natural essential oils will be there for you on your arrival to help you relax and feel the romance.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs:
                  When I first moved to North Carolina and began exploring the mountains, I fell in love with Madison County. Both the natural beauty and the beauty of the people who live and work here fills my heart with warmth.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  There is so much to enjoy on this property. It is remote enough that you cannot see any neighbors, yet close to many area attractions and activities.
