Location Type

  • RuralCome remember what it’s like to live close to the earth, where tree frogs serenade in summer while fireflies twinkle, where butterflies drift through the gardens and dragonflies hover around the pond. In autumn, experience the color changes of the hardwoods and reach for apples and pears as they ripen on the tree. Hike around in the crisp fallen leaves. In winter, suit up and sled down snowy slopes. Then build a crackling fire while the wind howls. By spring, you’ll want to warm in the sun while dandelions pop up. Why not sit on the pier by the pond and toss out a line with some fresh bait and tempt a bass or bluegill for your supper?
  • WaterfrontStocked pond with boathouse, pier, catwalk, picnic shelter, grill and bonfire ring.
  • Mountain ViewThe Nuthouse Cottage sits on a hill with views of hardwoods and meadows. Cows, sheep and goats graze and wildlife abounds. Ashe County Christmas trees grow within view. Our pond is stocked.

Pool / Spa

  • Private pool


  • When fishing on our pond, no license is required. You are also five minutes from Helton Creek a popular trout fishing location where NC fishing licenses are required. So catch some fish and cook them up! You can kayak, canoe or go tubing down the New River in summer. (Outfitters are available if needed.) You can hear first class bluegrass music, attend cultural festivals, visit arts and literary venues and shop antique stores in Jefferson and West Jefferson, NC. Since we are close to the Virginia state line, Mount Rogers National Recreation Area and Grayson Highlands State Park are both a short drive away. The Appalachian Trail is nearby for hiking and the Virginia Creeper Trail for biking starts at Whitetop, VA. Life is simple here, and unbelievably quiet. Enjoy birding, watching wildlife, and rocking on the porch or floating in the pond. Starlit nights are a specialty.
