Cashiers house description
Our house is nestled on a mountainside and is quiet and secluded but just minutes away from all the activities that Sapphire, Cashiers,Glenville and Highlands offer. Our two bedroom 1 bath is very clean, comfortable and was renovated this spring. The living room. dining room and kitchen have hardwood floors and an open floor plan with a 12 foot peaked ceiling. There is also a cozy wood burning stove to take the chill out of the night air (wood provided). We offer the standard communication amenities; wi-fi, a dvd player, and a flat screen with satellite TV. This would be a terrific artists retreat, a place to gather your thoughts and sound out the words to a novel or find the colors for a painting. The house is dog friendly. Downtown Cashiers has a glorious 12 1/2 acre open park for pets and children to walk and picnic in. Also known as the Village Green, the Kara Leigh Pulley park is a handsome manicured ramble that incorporates marsh wetlands and borders the post office and Cashier's excellent Albert Carlton public library where house guests can join for a nominal fee and have full privileges and reciprocity with 6 different libraries. It only takes a few minutes to get to the park and armed with a leash and a plastic bag this makes an ideal daily constitutional for dogs and their owners. We are also conveniently located near all the major golf courses, antique stores and many fine restaurants and coffee shops. There is a huge Ingles grocery store 5 minutes from the house and Highlands is about a half an hour up the road. My family and I lived here for 8 years and if you have any questions about what to do or where to go in the area we may be able to help generate some ideas.

- Our house is on a quiet secluded street just 4 minutes from downtown Cashiers. The living area is on one level with two small steps from the car park thru a wooden gate. There is a large wrap around deck with miles of unobstructed mountain views. We also own the 2 acres below the house and it is heavily forested. The deck can be closed off at either end making it pet/child friendly. I am a chef and my wife and I own Nona Mia/Ritrovo, in Asheville. Additionally we will give you a $50 gift certificate redeemable during your stay at our house if you decide to take a day trip to Asheville. We lived in this home with our daughter for 5 years when I was an executive chef at country clubs and we have always found it to be an awesome retreat where you can unwind, recharge and gain well needed perspective. We hope it will serve as a base camp for your WNC adventures with your favorite companions....moreless

About the owner: My name is Peter Affatato and I am chef and owner with my wife Yolie at Nona Mia Ritrovo in Asheville, North Carolina. I am from the New York area and our restaurant is named for my beloved and exacting grandmother, 'Nanny Ravioli' who taught me all she knew about Italian cooking. The restaurant is very successful, a ton of fun and very demanding. Yolie and I treasure the time we are able to get up to the house in Cashier's but we are not using it enough and would like to offer the privilege to others. I do all the cooking at 'the shop' and Yolie is the absolute best and most genuine networker and marketer imaginable. She innately knits together people, causes, events and ideas and we support with donated time and food over 40 different charities and non profits throughout Western North Carolina annually. We have a lovely 14 year old daughter who was raised in the library at Cashier's. In addition to being a voracious reader, she plays the flute, sings in a choir, runs the register at the restaurant part time, updates the Facebook and Twitter accounts, is on the soccer and track teams and last month (April 2012) with her chorale group she sang at Carnegie Hall. Yes, we cherish her immeasurably and are extremely proud of her. We have a cocoa colored lab mix named Canela who is also going to miss Cashiers but she knows any dog who does get up there will have a blast.
Why the Owner Chose Cashiers:
I was working as a chef at the country clubs. Yolie was a nurse and commuted to Asheville. We raised our daughter there.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The quiet. We have very busy lives and all of us are on the go from dawn till late at night. In Cashiers the phone rarely rings and we are able to slip into a softer and more conscious awareness of what matters in our lives. We always leave recharged and with a sense of perspective that is unfortunately often a shortfall of lives that move too quickly.
