About Lynn Brown
Hi I'm Lynn. A passionate lover of nature and animals and owner of 2 rescued Gordon Setter/Shepherd fur babies along with my 6 horses. I love where I live and enjoy sharing it with others, so I manage an 80 acre guest ranch/equestrian center, nature preserve and vacation rental which is home to many wildlife species…myself included ;) I have been a professional instructor of Natural Horsemanship for over 23 years and an avid equestrian. I currently teach private riding clinics and offer lessons. Recently I was also an instructor for a variety of natural horsemanship courses at Isothermal Community College here in Polk County where I enjoyed sharing techniques that were passed onto me. I have attended the International Study Center for Parelli Horsemanship in both Florida and Colorado and have been trained by several of the masters... Buck Brannaman, Lynn Palm, Chris Cox, Clinton Anderson, Pat Parelli and Dan James. Prior to opening TRANSITIONS I worked for several Fortune 100 companies in sales and management for 30 years in the medical/surgical industry as well as IT. I am Parelli Certified Level 4, a Certified Level 2 EAGALA Equine Specialist, a member of EFMHA (Equine Facilitated Mental Health Association) and have worked with my horses as an Equine Specialist for the department of juvenile justice, mental health community and prominent residential addiction treatment facilities in and around Polk and Rutherford counties. About 9 years ago I created a unique learning center here called Transitions Empowerment Center (TRANSITIONS), located on 80 beautiful and tranquil rolling acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Where I offer three main programs: Natural Horsemanship (for instructor directed riding and horsemanship skills), Equine Guided Learning (for personal and professional growth) and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy for a local 12-step addiction recovery facility.

Why Lynn Brown chose Rutherfordton
Prior to moving to North Carolina I lived in Illinois, Colorado and most recently Florida. I love the four seasons of the midwest and the lush green foliage but was looking for more moderate temperatures. I fell in love with Colorado and the mountains and missed them while in Florida but not the huge amounts of snow. After spending over two years traveling to North Carolina to find my Dream Home, I discovered this property. I enjoy sharing the peacefulness of the country, the beauty that nature provides everyday here and the abundance of wildlife that makes up this preserve. I chose to move here 13 years ago and live onsite. Sharing with others the beauty and tranquillity of the views, habitats, wildlife and woodlands as well as my horses has become my way of life here. To preserve and protect all that is here is my legacy while I strive for a green sustainable environment.
What makes this Cabin unique
I am an onsite owner and live on the north 40 acres of the property. While you enjoy complete privacy (I am available but not intrusive) you also have text access to me should you need assistance during your stay. Concierge service with area restaurants or attractions or just help with anything at Tiny Chalet. Customer service is my specialty. Tiny Chalet sits on the north 40 wooded acres so collectively you have 80 acres to enjoy without ever having to leave the estate. Your privacy and security is assured beginning with the gated entryway. If you are looking for the ultimate in tranquility and would rather not endure the hectic noise, traffic or intrusion of other travelers during your trip, this is the ideal location. I guarantee there is nothing else like it anywhere. You won't see or hear anyone else during your stay, it's like having your own private preserve all to yourself. The property includes so many options onsite for your enjoyment that everyone can find something. We are extremely dog friendly and have over 2 miles of walking trails for your pets to explore off leash! They do not need to be leashed while at the cabin at all or on the south 40 acres of trails. Feeling adventurous? Miles of gentle walking trails or more challenging trails for a hike or workout, fish in our private pond, stocked with large mouth bass and brim or schedule a relaxing guided trail ride with us on our well trained horses. Hand walked pony rides are even offered for the little ones! About an hour from Greenville, Asheville or Charlotte our location provides the perfect base camp for exploring all that western North Carolina has to offer. Minutes to beautiful Lake Lure and Chimney Rock State Park. Only 7 miles to the new Tryon International Equestrian Center. "We are in the middle of nowhere and the center of everything"...come see what escaping to the county is all about!
