Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Ben and Lori are natives of the area and great local guides for our beautiful "neck of the woods." Ben holds a B.S. in Environmental Science and has worked to save and restore log cabins and Lori has an M.Ed. in English Education, with a background in both teaching and tutoring and is a handmade soap maker. We are animal and nature lovers and look forward to sharing our home with you.

Why the Owner Chose Rutherfordton, NC, USA:
Lori's family owned land in this community for 100 years, the property is Lori's childhood home. When her great grandparents found the ancestral home place adjacent on Thompson, they came in a horse and buggy along a primitive dirt road. Our home was passed down through the generations and we are surrounded by family homes and land.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is located close to town (but not in town) and our area is a hub to jump off to horse events at the Tryon Equestrian Center, the beauty of Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, home of Dirty Dancing and Last of the Mohicans films. There are also local sporting events such as high school baseball and football. The Owls Forest City baseball games are just a few miles away. Natural beauty surrounds the area, including Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, South Mountains, Tryon, Marion, and more. Hiking and biking on the Rails to Trails is less than a mile away. The home also features beautiful sunsets over the Blue Ridge Mountains.
