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"!

We had a wonderful weekend staying at this house. The mountain views were lovely and there was more than enough room for our group of 12 girls. Just a quick 15 minute drive to downtown Asheville. Would definitely recommend!!

Everything we could have wanted for a group house!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 adults stayed at this property over a long weekend in January. We were extremely impressed by the spacious layout, cleanliness, multiple gathering areas, and great views that the house had to offer. The decor was up to date and clean, while retaining that "cabin" cozy feel you want in the Asheville area. Multiple dining rooms, a basement with tons of space for ping pong, and the hot tub was a great touch for a winter weekend. Plenty of bed space, and we appreciated the options to use pull-out mattresses in the closet for overflow space. I would recommend this house for any large group of adults or families - we definitely enjoyed our stay!

Perfect for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This home was just right for our three-generation Christmas family reunion. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we were pleasantly surprised that most things came in twos - 2 microwaves, 2 blenders, 2 sets of dishes, 2 sets of flatware, etc. Grammie was very pleased that the dining room was large enough to hold her whole family at once. All the bedrooms were comfy and the kids enjoyed the game room stuff. The owner was very attentive and quick to answer any questions and was very accommodating. We highly recommend.

Family Gathering

  • 4 of 5

The house does a wonderful job of housing 14 or more adults. We enjoyed the open floor plan and the porch and deck. We did order fire wood for $50.00 and it was delivered both green and damp so we were not able to use it and instead had to purchase wood in town. Do not order wood if you are planning to use the fire your own. We were also disappointed that there was no garbage disposal in the kitchen. That makes it difficult when you have large groups eating 2-3 meals a day. Otherwise the kitchen is equipped terrifically. There was not a single gadget or pot we needed that was not available. Ally Jukeum, the owner, was great about returning calls and helping us if we had questions. Overall, a pretty spot in a comfortable home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review I am glad you all had a great time. We work very hard to ensure that the home has everything a vacationer needs. The garbage disposal is a first for us, no one has ever mentioned not having one. We will definitely look into the advantages of having one verses not. I am sorry your wood was wet (not green) as we have had unbelievable rain this fall. There have been no issues with it before as per many of our resent reviews..the following one was just last month. *We had a large group of adults staying for a long weekend & everything went perfectly. We had so much fun. We used Uber almost every time & didn’t really have any problems. It was nice to go downtown & not worry about driving. We were about 10-15 mins from downtown Asheville. We used all the eggs we ordered & the firewood. We had a lot of laughs roasting s’mores by the fire. Everyone was sad to leave! Thanks for having us! ** The group before you had a fire with no issues also. I did mention to the wood guy your comment about the campfire wood and he said the order came in later than usual and he had to set it out in the rain. It was raining there when I was doing inventory and I watched him stack it. It stopped raining and became quite windy so I thought it would be fine. Again thank you for your comments and we hope you all had a safe trip home. The Norally Family
