Why the Owner Chose Brasstown, NC, USA:
The Appalachian mountains have been home to our ancestors since the early 1700's. Stars aligned for us, the mountains called, and we arrived! There is no better place on earth to live than here, in the mountains of North Carolina. This area has everything you could possibly want: Folk school, artists, fishing, kayaking, white water rafting, golfing, hiking of the A.T., antique stores, concerts, festivals, wineries, waterfalls & fine dining. You just can't beat the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains!!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
'Mountain Jewel' is a private home but it's not remote. It lies in the heart of the Appalachians in the Great Smoky Mountains. It is a darling home in the woods, with an abundance of wildlife (deer, turkey, Pileated woodpeckers....all enjoyed from our kitchen window!). The home is very peaceful & our property is quiet. Bring the kids, bring yourself, come & rejuvenate!
