Here's what some of our guests have had to say:
Hi Jan,
We've just returned from your house in Asheville......How wonderful!!! The house was great, the firepit was so enjoyable, but without a doubt,,,,,the most wonderful part of the property was the guest house! Our family enjoyed the pool table, and gas logs, but the porch was absolutely fantastic! How great to sit out on the porch and listen to the creek with our family. The time we spent was unforgettable.Our parents are getting a little older, and our family time is limited, and with part of us in S.C, and part of us in Kentucky we seldom have time when all of us are together,,,,, We will treasure this time for many years to come.
This was such a blessing!
Thanks again...
The McDonald's

More Comments...: 'This has been a great family vacation! We hiked almost everyday...the most beautiful and fun for the kids was hiking 'Graveyard Trail'. We visited the N.C. Arboretum, Black Mountain, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, The Grove Park Inn...just to name a few! Had dinner at the Pisgah Inn - it was good, but really enjoyed cooking steaks here on the grill. We had a campfire each night and read ghost stories from a book we left for you to enjoy! We'll be back!' The Wilkens Family

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Keith and Jan have called Central Florida 'home' since 1984, where we established a custom sign manufacturing business. Designing and creating signs has been a great way to use our God-given talents and also has lead us down the road to renovating and restoring houses through the years..

Why the Owner Chose Candler, NC, USA:
We absolutely fell in love with this property and the whole area in the Pisgah National Forest when first laying eyes on it! There are 8 homes on a total of 77 acres that were notched out of the Forest back in 1930's and little by little most of these homes were constructed by Bob Dowtin who built our house in 1952. Home renovations and decorating has been our joy and given us much satisfaction, so it was a natural fit for us to find such a unique opportunity and begin a renovating process again. Our latest project completed was tearing down an old garage and building a wonderful gameroom/guesthouse (Creekside finished in 2007) re-using the beautiful rough-sawn oak boards to make kitchen cabinets and a dining table for the new structure! We began sharing this amazing property with friends and family many years ago and it only gets to be more fun with each ensuing year (thanks to VRBO and HomeAway)! Words cannot begin to say how much God has blessed us with this place and what a privilege it is to 'meet' all the new travelers who contact us to stay here in our 'little piece of heaven'!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
2 beautiful mountainside acres with oaks, ironwoods, poplars and hemlocks towering over the wild rhododendron, mountain laurel and creek. Though we have a few neighboring homes, none are in view of our property. Privacy and serenity are key. Fire pit down by the creek.
