About Dawn Grinenko

We fell in love with the quiet beauty of Hayesville, Julie Mountain and the Tusquittee Valley after purchasing a vacation home nearby. We purchased this property as part of our lifetime dream of developing a place for rest, discernment and restoration for others after difficult journeys in life. Our ultimate plan is to develop this property into a place of retreat for families who have a child or parent with a serious illness. We are both retiring from the health care field and hope to continue to serve in a healing capacity to all who visit The Still Place on Compass Creek

Dawn Grinenko purchased this house in 2013

Why Dawn Grinenko chose Hayesville

Grace and patience brought us to this property. We had planned to actualize our dream at a farm in Florida. But after Dawn was diagnosed with Melanoma cattle ranching and farming in the hot Florida sun was no longer an option. After being unable to afford farm land in the Hayesville area this beautiful serene setting came on the market and as they say the rest shall be history as it unfolds. We hope you will be a part of layering this place with the love of your family and friends as we develop the property in the next several years.

What makes this house unique

Compass Creek is the true gem of this property for all ages. The soothing sound of the water is like a lullaby. The wild rainbow trout are more beautiful than any gem we might find in the ruby, sapphire and garnet laden hills surrounding us. Glimpsing the sparkle of the creek water from each of the rooms is sometimes breath-taking as the water dances around the rocks. The property is situated in a quiet, friendly community with access to trails on our 27 acre property and surrounding National Forest.

Great getqwat

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property — perfect for small kids. The hobbit house and tree house did not disappoint. Lots of groceries on hand in the house — thanks Dawn. Would recommend bringing a hammock to string between trees and watch the stars. Wonderful stay.

Best ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been vacationing in North Carolina for quite a few years. I have never stayed in a place that I felt was so special that I really, really miss it and hope to return someday. It’s a true “home” and filled with so much love and giving. It’s filled with nearly every toy a child could want and so clean and comfortable. The outside is possibly the most beautiful setting yet. There’s so much to savor, the stream and swimming hole, beautiful forest and gardens. I guess I could go on and on but I think you get the idea. Dr Dawn and Dr Craig are some of the finest people ever and their mission at the “The Still Place” deserves so much recognition and gratitude. My family and I sincerely thank you for a truly awesome week. God Bless you both…

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just recently stayed here for the third time and we all had a blast, per usual.

The location is quiet and peaceful with compass creek right outside your back door. The house is very clean, has everything you need, and GREAT for children. The homeowners are two of the sweetest and most caring people I’ve ever met and we were so happy they opened their home to us once again. We were a little sad to go home at the end of our stay, but cannot wait to go back!!
