About the owner: I have lived in Nantahala for 8 years. I love it here. It is very peaceful and relaxing. I started Nantahala Farm and Garden because I love country living. I have Toggenburg goats, Ancona ducks, Dominique chickens, and Banty chickens. I have a large herb garden and grow vegetables every year. The mountain life is wonderful.
Why the Owner Chose Nantahala: I moved here because I wanted to live in harmony with nature. I gardened starting as a child when my mother taught me about plants. I loved it then, and I love it now.
I enjoy walking in the mountains. The whitewater rafting is a lot of fun with great restaurants overlooking the water at Nantahala Outdoor Center. I love bird watching. It is especially nice here in the autumn with a colorful display of falling leaves.
The Unique Benefits at this House: I like the community here. People care about each other. It is a small town where people know each other. It's a little bit like going back in time to a more connected life.
