                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We are the Anderson's, Rick & Kathi. We reside in Andrews, North Carolina. We both love the outdoors, hiking or driving the many back roads of the Appalachians. Kathi is a fiber artist who enjoys spinning wool, weaving & knitting. Rick is a wood-worker who enjoys having his hands busy with any type of wood-working, home renovations are his specialty.

                  Why the Owner Chose Brasstown:
                  The Appalachian mountains have been home to our ancestors since the early 1600's. Stars aligned for us, the mountains called, and we arrived! There is no better place on earth to live than here, in the mountains of North Carolina. This area has everything you could possibly want or need: Folk school, artists, kayaking, white water rafting, hiking of the A.T., antique stores, concerts, festivals, wineries, waterfalls & fine dining.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  'Mountain Jewel' is a private home but it's not remote. It lies in the heart of the Appalachians & the Brasstown Carvers. It is a darling home in the woods, with an abundance of wildlife (deer, turkey, Pileated woodpeckers....enjoyed from our kitchen window!). The home is decorated with some art, a few antiques, and plenty of peace. Bring the kids, bring yourself, come & rejuvenate!
