This property has been in the family for years and was always used as a family gathering place. We could always depend on the "house on the river" to provide great memories of kids playing in the river and exploring the world without a care. We have six adult children, five of whom have lived at this home at one time or another in their marriages. Our family considers this home a treasure and hope that you will enjoy it the way we have throughout the years.
Why Chris chose North Fork
The "house on the river" is a great getaway for the family or those seeking some peaceful nature but not off the beaten path at all. The home is less than a mile from shopping and town but it's a well kept secret among even those who have lived in Marion for years. Why stay in an expensive hotel when you can have all the convenience of home for the same price and with more room. More to explore, more space, more wildlife, more outdoor relaxing areas. Sleeps six.
What makes this House unique
Guests are free to walk the gravel roads that lead in and out of the property. The mill on the other side of the wooden bridge was originally a flour mill for locals to get their flour. The property around the mill is owned by the town of Marion and leased to our family and is yours to enjoy while you are at the "house on the river". We suggest a river walk that starts at the little beach near the mill and then to the house and beyond. The adjacent property on the other side is owned by Smyth County Community Hospital, Ballad Health. You don't even see the hospital as it is surrounded by 45 acres of mostly woods and nature and is set on a hill high above the river. You are close to highway 11 and the railroad. The kids have always loved when trains came through as it was a reminder of the progress that is close by while enjoying God's great gift of nature.
