Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: I was born in Texas then moved to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. During this time, my father, a Vietnam veteran, was serving in the Army’s Special Forces. I grew up in Buncombe County where the family home had been established in the late 1800s. I have lived in North Dakota, California, Idaho, Washington State and Australia. As a missionary nurse, I have traveled to Peru, Guatemala, Indonesia, and Australia. I have three border collies-PRINCESS Kenai, Shammy and Healy, Coxie-the rooster and his nine hens, and some minx cats that enjoy my family farm with me.

Why the Owner Chose Leicester, NC, USA:
This is a family inheritance which I am privileged to own. I want you to share with me in this experience of beauty and solitude. No city lights, just God's heavenly stars. A bird watchers sanctuary and great hiking.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Completely private, peaceful, relaxing experience. Claw footed tub (Hillbilly Hot Tub) on front porch with modern amenities. A bubbling mountain stream flows continuously beside the unique cabin.
