I enjoy traveling In my RV, kayaking, camping, bicycling, hunting, fishing, and spending time with my family. I have two wonderful daughters that keep me going.

Why the Owner Chose Kenilworth, Asheville, NC, USA:
The reason I chose Asheville for a rental/retirement home is because my oldest daughter lives here and we enjoy spending time together in this awesome town.
