Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Since Hurricane Katrina I am a Disaster Assistance Employee deployed in the aftermath of disasters. Formerly I was a counselor in private practice, consultant & trainer and continue to own and manage the first B&B in Ocean Springs, MS, Oak Shade Bed & Breakfast. My four adult children are responsible, self-supporting, environmentally conscious professionals with exceptional credit scores. I am understandably proud of them! I am a high energy, physically active beyond mid-life woman who loves to read, write & travel. Last year I visited the Turkish cities of Istanbul, Ephesus and Kusdasi. As a young woman I worked as a tour guide in Turkey and my first child was born in Ankara. With the single exception of North Dakota, I have visited all 50 states, traveled in more than two dozen countries and lived in four. Originally from Asheville, the Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains draw me in, hold me in their embrace and always, I consider the NC mountains my spiritual home.

Why the Owner Chose West Jefferson, NC, USA:
Eventually I may move from the Mississippi Gulf Coast to live closer to my daughter, her partner & my grandchildren. Until then I wanted to have a rental and mountain get-away for myself where I may putter, enjoy time alone and do some creative writing. The outdoor options for sport and recreation are fantastic, and there are fascinating cultural, natural and human-made sites to visit. A walking tour of the 15 murals in West Jefferson done by local artists is a 'must-do.' Nearby you may want to enjoy The Church of the Frescoes OR impressive performances sponsored by the Arts Council OR monthly outdoor music events at the community park below the library as well as public tennis courts, a covered picnic area and a children's playground with a creek running through it. There are also annual events that draw thousands of visitors to West Jefferson area beginning with Merlefest (last weekend in April) followed by Christmas in July (first weekend), the August Fiddlers Convention and others. Two hours' drive could find you in Asheville, Winston-Salem, Hickory, or the quaint town of Damascus, VA. Each season offers unique, special stimulation to the discerning traveler interested in stretching her/his life experience. I cannot overstate the beauty; you simply have to see for yourself!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet, peaceful, walking distance to top of Mt. Paddy & downtown West Jefferson; close to Mount Jefferson St. Park & the Blue Ridge Parkway. Two fabulous decks to enjoy both sun and moon showings as well as Mt. Paddy and Mt. Jefferson. Exceptional local library--visible from back deck of Marian Manor-- walking distance to the West Jefferson Coffee House, en route to library. Also close by you may enjoy Boone, Blowing Rock, Grandfather Mtn., Tweetsie Railroad, several gem mines (to pan for rubies!), ski resorts, or Linville Caverns, Falls & Gorge. You may opt to bike ride on the Virginia Creeper Trail, formerly an old railroad bed converted from 'Rails to Trails.' Exceptional restaurants in West Jefferson area beckon every palate and pocketbook: Frasers, Sweet Aromas, Geno's, Shatley Springs, Mountain Aire, Tamales, Black Jack's, Smoky Mountain Barbecue and the Hillbilly Grill. The New River--the oldest river in North America--offers tubing, kayaking, canoeing as well as fishing, wading or simply sitting by the stream. Come see for yourself. There is something for everyone and you are likely to return again and again.
