About Debra Cramer Anderson

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.

Debra Cramer Anderson purchased this house in 2006

Why Debra Cramer Anderson chose Rosman

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Very clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our relaxing stay and the dogs loved the backyard! Debbie was the most hospitable host and through the extreme cold and icy conditions, ensured we were safe upon departing. 'A Stone's Throw' was the perfect, clean, and quaint getaway to bring in the New Year! A must return destination and a definite recommendation to all. If you are looking for a simple, cozy and relaxing getaway, 'A Stone's Throw' is the place for you.

Perfect location for waterfalls

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great weekend here enjoying everything the area has to offer. Great waterfalls very close to the house. Best breakfast diner EVER just a mile away. Close to Hendersonville/Brevard shopping. Really just a best of both worlds place. We have a 2 year old and a dog so the fenced in back yard just put it over the top for us.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good getaway! Hope you found the waterfalls up by Balsam Grove. They are really pretty ones and close to the road. I think the diner you are referring to is Country Skillet. They do put on a really good breakfast!! We enjoy eating there occasionally. Merry Christmas to you and your family, and hope you consider staying with us again!

A wonderful home town place convenient to all the wonderful places in Western NC. Simple and wonderful perks like coffee, spices and a cute bowl of laundry detergent packets. The back years was lovely and inviting with the water feature and fire pit. Just perfect!!!

Very cozy, with large backyard for pets to run!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend here at A Stones Throw. A nice small town feel with football field and school about a half a mile away. We enjoyed the large yard for our dogs to run and also sipping coffee on the front porch in the mornings! There is a air conditioning unit in one bedroom and one I'm the living room, which kept us comfortable our whole stay. The high was around 80-85 degrees outside. We spent one day at Lake Jocassee which was about 50 min away, and went to White Water Falls (30 mins away) and Sassafras mountain (20) away. Check it out!

Wonderful, restful stay.

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Away from the bustle of Brevard and Asheville, but close enough to get into town. Walking path behind house. Yard is lovely with a fire pit. Right on Main Street, but not very busy with traffic. Game at high school stadium, but wasn't terribly loud. Couldn't hear it inside. Slept very well.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a nice time! Thank you so much for your kind words. Rosman is very school oriented, so sometimes the students and fans can get kind of rambunctious at the home games!

Cozy, comfortable and clean! Debbie has it set up very nicely!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, comfortable and clean! Kitchen was well stocked with dishes/ pots and pans for cooking. We especially enjoyed the swing on the front porch, which was great to enjoy our coffee in the morning. We also appreciated the bikes and tubes that were available for our use. My kids really enjoyed floating down the French Broad on Saturday. The back yard is very nice also. Listening to the water fall was very peaceful. Thank you Debbie for a wonderful stay in Rosman!

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.
