Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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

Why the Owner Chose Hayesville, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
