'Pine Shadows' chalet is located off the beaten path with easy access to all the wonders of western North Carolina in COLUMBUS, NC. A short drive to Asheville and Hendersonville, the cabin in nestled in the woods at the top of a private paved road in the township of Columbus (Pop. 992), just off Interstate 26 (I-26). The house is three minutes from downtown Columbus, five miles from the equestrian and arts community of Tryon, ten miles from water sporting on Lake Lure, 22 miles east of Festivals and apple orchards of Hendersonville, 43 miles southeast of high altitude and the cosmopolitan life in Asheville, and 30 miles north of Spartanburg, SC. Western North Carolina is famous for its gorgeous mountains, visitor-friendly country folk and quaint towns filled with wonderful crafts and unusual antiques.

Columbus is located in one of North Carolina's isothermal belts, where the weather is most often quite moderate and winters are extremely mild.

Come for the privacy, peace and quiet, mountain exploring, horse shows, festivals, antiquing, thrift-storing, historical sites, mountain hiking, and restaurant hopping.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Our family rented a variety of homes in the mountains of western NC over the years. We loved staying in vacation rentals, so when we found Pine Shadows Chalet and fell in love with it in 2003, we took the plunge into second home ownership. After a year we decided to share our wonderful vacation home with other families. It has worked out fabulously, and the people who have stayed have been top-notch! For twenty years, I was professor of fine arts and humanities at Florida State College in Jacksonville, FL. My spouse is a retired journalist of The Associated Press and has recently published his first novel. So the chalet has a full library of books and music and is decorated with an artist's touch. Come enjoy our wonderful place.

Why the Owner Chose Columbus, NC, USA:
We keep our beautiful home well-maintained, updated, and guest-friendly. Your great experience visiting Pine Shadows Chalet is our top concern. Our guests -- some of whom return year after year -- say it best in their reviews. Please view them.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We instantly loved Pine Shadows Chalet because of its surrounding pastoral beauty. We liked that the home was at the top of a private road and off the beaten track yet in close proximity to the attractions and shopping in Hendersonville and Asheville. The house was custom-built in 1981 with a 25' apex in the living room at the top of the 5000-brick fireplace. We loved the many angles of the walls and roof lines, the interior brick walls, the natural oak doors, and the many upgrades too numerous to list. We were instantly drawn to the gorgeous westerly view from the living room-dining room, all the natural light, and the 'good karma' of the chalet. The owner/builders lived at Pine Shadows Chalet from 1981 - 2003. We are the home's lucky second owners.
