About Carol Hemphill
Hi, we're Alan and Carol Hemphill. We live in the tranquil foothills of NC about 1 hour south of our mountain property. We have 2 lovely daughters, 4 dogs, and 3 cats. Carol is a corporate trainer in the financial industry; Alan is the proud owner of The Fresh Depot Restaurant located in Hickory, NC, and an eBay store listed as cookwareconnection.
Carol Hemphill purchased this House in 2011
Why Carol Hemphill chose Foscoe
We love this area for its scenic beauty and array of recreational, educational, and cultural activities and events. From the peaks of Grandfather Mountain, to the depths of Linville Gorge and Caverns, there's just no place like it on Earth. Come find out for yourselves.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the quiet majesty of the mountains in a community setting. The neighborhood hiking trail, swimming pool, and tennis court are a stone's throw from our driveway. The best ski slopes in NC are 10 minutes away. The first stay at our house was Thanksgiving 2011. The greatest thing about our house is it provides one place for such a large group, which gave us all the chance for more family time. Parents with little children don't have to go back to their hotel room and stay with the little ones. We had 17 and this was the first year we all got to stay in one location. The kitchen works great, with one range and one cook top, enough 'eyes' for our short order breakfasts. Toaster and toaster oven producing bagels and toast. while the Keurig and a 14 cup coffee maker woke us all up. The three 80 gallon water heaters made sure there were no cold showers. The cousins that don't get to spend as much together time as we did when we were little really got some quality time together. So what makes our house so unique isn't even there. It is in all the cars that pull up and unload your family. Then the most wonderful family experience begins!

Great Family Reunion House
The house is in a great location! We had 15 adults and 4 children and we were all very comfortable! The kitchen and Dining room were great for group meal time and never felt crowded. Everyone had a space to getaway if necessary. The pool table was used regularly for many hours of entertainment! We were there for my Mom’s 80th bday celebration and it was perfect for our multigenerational family!! We are already planning our return trip!
It was wonderful! Just like we remembered from 5 years ago!
We had 26 people there, the house is laid out so well that we never felt crowded. The bedrooms are quiet. We love having a bath in every bedroom.
Comfortable very spacious house. Easy access from main road.
Our group of 12 adults was unanimous in praising the location and the house's charm and amenities--
The perfect weekend!
My family and I had a wonderful time this past weekend celebrating my mother's 60th birthday. The house was spacious and located in a beautiful community. The only issues noticed we're that even with the thermostat up to 68 the room directly to left of the front stairs on the top floor was still very cold. When going up the stairs the room opposite to you and just to the right had a very small hole at the bottom of the tub. The room directly to the left of the stairs on the bottom floor was cold until we figured out the small window in the bathroom was stuck open and has a broken hinge. Lastly, the fridge didn't keep cool, not even in the nighttime when there was no one open and closing it alot.
Truly, my family and I loved the cabin and are very grateful we got to spend time there. Thank you for sharing your home with us Carol!
What a perfect place
Perfect place for us Lees McRae College alumni to spend 4 days. This is our 3rd visit to this house and not our last! We love the fact that every bedroom has it's own bath. Plenty of gathering space and a great kitchen!!
Perfect for large groups!
We have stayed at this property several times. The privacy of each bedroom having a bath is a huge asset. The kitchen/dining area allows everyone to eat together. Also plenty of parking. It remains the favorite of our group.
