Nestled in the Nantahala National Forest, and in the southern shadows of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you'll find 'Jimbo's Farm.' It's a 53 acre retreat that includes a 110 year-old restored Farm House with New Metal Roof, one acre trout pond, 2 settling ponds with waterfalls and mountain branch running through the entire property. There are Apple / Pear / Peach / Cherry Trees and Blueberry Bushes in meadow next to Pond. Hughes Net Internet service with wireless router available. Springtime arrives late March, when the old growth trees begin to green and daffodils start to bloom. By summer, dogwood, laurel, wild azaleas and rhododendron are in full glory. Gentle summer temperatures rarely reach 80 F while nights drop into the high 50's. The colors of fall in this rural mountain setting make for the most spectacular viewing. With over 100,000 acres of National Forest, the walking trails along the pristine streams and mountain tops contain one of the greatest varieties of flora found anywhere in the world. Lake Santeetlah covers 2800 acres, with 100 miles of shoreline. Excellent fishing for small mouth bass and large mouth bass, walleye, crappie, bream, and lake trout. Cherohala Skyway; a leisurely and breathtaking drive. This ridge route between North Carolina and Tennessee opened on October 12, 1996 and was immediately acclaimed as one of the most scenic routes in the USA. Spirit Ridge offers the most expansive view along the entire route. The Dr agon: 318 curves in 11 miles on US 129, a scenic driving challenge. Mountain crafts abound with over 500 local artisans. Cherokee Indians are native to the county and make beautiful baskets, beaded items and carvings. Tsali: one of top 10 mountain biking trails in the US. Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest: the last 3,800 acres of untouched virgin wilderness east of the Mississippi. Old growth trees, some 20 feet around the base, grow in this natural setting and remain in its primitive state. Excellent walking trails wind along this living monument to the memory of Joyce Kilmer, the poet who is best remembered for the poem 'Trees.' Practice your Fly casting skills on your private trout pond before heading off to countless streams. Then visit the famous Blue Boar Lodge, rent a boat and try your luck on Lake Santeetlah. Enjoy the many outdoor activities available just minutes from ' Jimbo's Farm .' Or just stock up, close the gate, and stay in your secluded retreat.

locals are wonderful.
You get the entire 53 acre to yourselves. Looking out from front porch you see the
acre pond and Beech Creek Mountain not other cabins & other folks.
