Escape to A Stone’s Throw, the peaceful and comfortable home you can use as your base of operations while you experience all that Transylvania County, NC has to offer. Located midway between Brevard and Lake Toxaway, you are almost in the center of the county. The vacation home is just “a stone’s throw” away from all the outdoor activities that are offered. Three bedrooms and one bath, this older home offers cleanliness and comfort and has just recently been updated.
Situated on almost an acre of fenced in yard, there is ample parking for your boat or RV, a couple of outbuildings and a carport to store your mountain bikes or kayaks. Your children or pet will enjoy being able to play in the huge fenced-in yard. Along with lots of shade, the yard also offers a gas barbecue grill, picnic table, outdoor dining table and chairs, a fire pit and a waterfall feature to enjoy after you are through exploring the area.
Enjoy your morning coffee on the large front porch and wave to the friendly townspeople as they pass by. Sit in one of the rockers and just rest or take a break in the porch swing.
So far our guests tell us they love the ambience of the small town, the well-equipped kitchen, the wireless high speed internet, the 42” flat screen television with satellite, the cleanliness and coziness of the home. After a day of hiking, kayaking or looking at one of the county’s 250 waterfalls, you can relax with the well-stocked inventory of books to read, DVD and VCR movies, games and puzzles. A Stone’s Throw is a dream for those with pets and children.
A Stone’s Throw is handicap accessible with a ramp at the back of the home. The doors are 36” wide and there is a grab bar in the bathroom. The floors are all hardwood and the front porch is accessible from inside the home with a ramp.
The French Broad River is approximately 250’ from the front door of the house across the school’s practice field. The headwaters of the river are a mile upstream; but Champion Park in Rosman is where most people access the river with their kayaks, canoes and tubes. A Stone’s Throw is within walking distance of Champion Park, the grocery store, the post office, the town’s swimming pool and a few charming stores.
Experience your vacation in the small mountain town of Rosman, North Carolina, located 8 miles west of Brevard, the county seat. Rosman is half way between Lake Toxaway and Brevard. A little known surprise for most people, Rosman is a small town with a big heart. The population is only 586 and the town has two stoplights.
THINGS TO SEE AND DO WHILE HERE INCLUDE
* Pisgah National Forest, including Sliding Rock, Looking Glass Falls, Cradle of Forestry and numerous other landmarks.
*Dupont State Foret where some scenes from 'The Hunger' Games were filmed.
*Gorges State Park
*Caesar's Head State Park
*Brevard Music Center
*Tubine and canoeing
*Blue Ridge Parkway
*French Broad River access at Champion Park in Rosman.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: My Mom, Martha Cramer, who is co-owner of the property, was born and raised in Transylvania County; but raised my sister and me in Fort Pierce, Florida. I lived there for 28 years, but loved coming to the mountains every summer to visit family and friends. Finally, in May of 1984, I moved here permanently, where I met my wonderful husband, Bill. I can't imagine living anywhere else ever again and love it here.
Why the Owner Chose Rosman, NC, USA:
I knew the family that lived here before, and always waved to them on their front porch as I went by. The home we live in is up on a mountain at the dead end where we don't see any people -- just wildlife. So, I always thought it would be nice to live in Rosman, where I would know everyone.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the front porch and the back yard. It is wonderful to sit outside and listen to the birds. Then, in the evenings, it is mesmerizing to watch the flames dance in the fire pit and listen to the waterfall feature. I like that it is just 'a stone's throw' from the IGA store, the post office and Champion Park where everyone puts their kayaks, canoes and tubes in the French Broad River to spend a couple of hours or a day floating on the river. We are only 8 miles southwest of Brevard, and can be there in less than 15 minutes and be in the 'big city' of Asheville, NC in about 40 minutes.
