About Alley Juckem

Norally's Vision

I was born in Panama near the Panama Canal. My father was a career soldier, the son of an Iowa Farmer. My mother was a citizen of Panama.

I lived and went to school in Panama till I was 8 years old. I remember the country as a very pretty, tropical country. I also remember that as an Army brat, I never felt at home there or in many other places that the military would take us. Being a child I really could not understand, why. That is until my father was transferred back state side.

I will never forget arriving at my Grandparents Iowa farm home. It was late at night and there were fireflies glowing all about. My Grandmother (Hattie) came running out to greet us. The love she had for my father was written all over her face. When she hugged me it felt like I had always known her, and that hug. I can still remember how she smelled.

My grandparent’s home was large, inviting and had plenty of room for us all. The next day all my fathers brothers and sister their spouses and children came for a big family gathering. I had Uncles, Aunts and cousins that loved us. They were our family. We belonged to each other. We were home.

My grandparents lovely farm home is now gone, as are they. I could not save that wonderful farm, but the love, laughter, fun and memories my cousins and I shared is ours forever.

I didn't know at that magical moment, how my life would move. I did not know that in my darkest hours, those magical moments I had shared with my family, at my grandparents home would keep me warm, bring me hope, make me smile and give me strength.

I came to realize that it was not the house and farm that we enjoyed so much as each other. Having room to all be together under one roof.

It is our vision to give families that visit Norally House or The Rose on Norally Acres that wonderful blessed feeling that they are always welcome, always at home.

Alley Juckem

Alley Juckem purchased this house in 1987

Why Alley Juckem chose Weaverville

My Husband and I designed and built this beloved property in 1987 for our growing family. We wanted a 6 bedroom home close and easy access to Asheville on some small acres with surround mountain views from sun up to sun set. We felt that if we were going to live in the mountains we wanted to see them from every window.

We did not think we would find the perfect spot until one day we got lost actually heading to another piece of land for sale. We pulled over unto a road off the main road to check out a map because we did not have GPS back then. It was a beautiful summer day and while my husband was checking out the map I was looking around at the beautiful sight before me. I remember leaning against our car and saying “why can’t we find a perfect spot like this.” My husband looked up and said “wow!! Guess you got to have a bit of luck or angel to find perfect spots like this.” We both started to walk around the beautiful location pointing out how perfect it was. As we walked back to the car a man walking his dog came over to us and told us he lived just down the road. We introduced ourselves and told him we were lost he started to help us by giving us directions to where we were headed. We mentioned that we hoped the property we were about to see was as beautiful as the one we were standing in front of. He then said “well you know this property is for sale the sign must have fallen down.”

We could not believe it!! He had the name and number of the owner. We got in our car decided the heck with even looking at another property. We had found what we wanted. We headed straight back to our rental called the owners of the two perfect acres and closed the perfect deal that night. The rest is History.

I do not believe in luck but I do believe in Angels.

What makes this house unique

The surround mountain views made us fall in love with this property. The private two acres just 10 minutes from the heart of Asheville is an added plus. The French Broad river is one and half mile bike ride or jog. The small town of Weaverville just a stroll away. The fine dining in Asheville and Weaverville is outstanding. The many festivals and events held all year around is always exciting and fun. A grand adventure seems to be waiting around the bend all year round. Visitors can enjoy viewing wild turkeys, and other wild life along with surround mountain views.

Just like the song goes "nothing could be finer"!

Perfect House for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was married on Sept. 1 on a nearby farm. This was the perfect house for family and friends to gather and celebrate the wedding weekend. We had a group of 15 adults, with a combination of couples and singles. The layout of this house was perfect. The roll-away beds enabled singles to share a room and still have separate beds. The large deck, kitchen, and huge dining area provided space for meals together. There was even enough room for friends who were not staying at the house, to gather the evening before the wedding for a welcome dinner. The kitchen was well stocked with every item one could possibly need. There are also many spaces where guests can escape when they need a little quiet time away from the group. Prior to our stay, I had several questions about the layout of the house. The owner was quick to respond and was very helpful. This was a hectic wedding weekend. We all agreed that we would love to return and enjoy a relaxing time at this house.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you all had a great time. It's was a pleasure having you all and what a blessing to have your 90 year old Father along..amazing. I am so happy the wedding extended stay turned out great for you all! Thank you for the lovely picture you sent us of the rainbow you all saw from the deck. I have taken many a picture of rainbows there. What a great thing to share with your family and friends. We work hard to ensure everything our groups can possibly need is provided. We want our guest to walk in and start enjoying themselves with family and friends from the moment they walk in to the moment they walk out. Please know that you are welcome back anytime. Thank you for your lovely review and most of all thank you for staying with us. Alley

great yard and location

  • 5 of 5

We used this property for a couples get away. We loved the location as it was close to Asheville (16 min) and the Groovepark Inn (10min). We enjoyed hanging out in the yard and the fact that all the bedrooms had queen beds so no couple was stuck in a bunk bed. Ali was quick and easy to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. We are so glad you could enjoy the grounds and views!! Most adults usually want a queen bed, so we have always tried to provide large comfortable beds. This coming Spring two of the seven bedrooms will have king beds in stead of queen. We will continue to provide single beds in the game room area and other areas when needed for large groups, church groups, business groups, family reunions and such. We pride ourselves in providing sleeping comfort on real beds not futons, bunks or air mats. Your lovely group was wonderful..and very neat and clean!!! Please know that you and your friends are welcome back anytime! The Norally Family

5 stars with a couple of little things

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Norally House for 4 days in August, 2018. It was a family reunion with 4 generations, ranging in age from 1 to 88, with the number of people reaching 22 at one point. The best things about this house are:

1. Big spaces. The family room, the dining room, and the deck are huge with plenty of seating. Also, the basement is a great retreat. Folks can all be together or spread out as needed.

2. Kitchen. Very well equipped kitchen. There was nothing we needed that was not there.

3. Yard and outdoor space. We had plenty of space to set up badminton outside. Fun to watch the wild turkeys parade through the yard every morning. Literally a dozen wild turkeys at one point.

A couple of little things to be aware of:

1. Handicap accessible. The site advertises as handicap accessible, and that's true for the most part. A wheelchair-dependent or walker-dependent person can enter on the first floor and have a bedroom on the first floor, but the only bathroom on the first floor has a regular bathtub. If that person goes to the basement with a walk-in shower, there is the issue of stairs to get to the main floor. Fortunately our one walker-dependent grandparent was able to negotiate the bathtub on the first floor. If you have someone who must use a wheelchair, I'm not sure this house would be the best choice.

2. Older furnishings. For the price, there really should be better quality beds and sofas, but I understand this process of updating is underway. Don't get me wrong; the beds and sofas are not terrible.

All in all, I would definitely recommend the house for big family gatherings. We had rain for 2/3 of the time we were there, and the house was a great place to hang out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I am so glad you all had a great time. We work hard to provide everything we can think of for our visiting families. We have many groups through out the years (17 years) that have had a family member in a wheel chair and motorize chairs with no problems. Sometimes they will use the handicap chair in the tub on the first floor other times they will go around the out side and go through the patio doors to use the lower level floors walk in shower without using the stairs. Yes, our furnishings are being updated as you noticed. Two bedrooms are getting king beds and the other bedrooms already have new beds. The grand-room furniture receives the most usage and is updated regularly. Its something we do on a regular basses and will continue to do so. Everyone has diffident taste in furnishings and we try to keep our furnishings, large group and family friendly. Please know that you and your family are always welcome in our lovely Vacation Rental.
