We are hoping to find loving non-smokers interested in a Smoky Mountain Christmas! We hope you can come late afternoon Sat) to meet and settle in before we leave early the next morning. We will return the evening of Sat). We will be travelling with our dogs, so would like you to stay here to look after our cats and funny chickens. (We will leave a 4WD manual transmission SUV for you to use during your stay if you wish...) We have not had snow around Christmas for several years, but this just might be the year! If interested in a mountain Christmas adventure, please contact us!
Now, for the family...We have 6 mostly indoor cats, 1 outdoor cat and sixteen funny chickens to look after while we are away.Two of the indoor cats are seniors, sweet though sometimes persnickety. One of them requires medication, so cat whisperer skills would come in handy! We will leave detailed written instructions for you, as well as contact numbers.
About our place...Our log cabin is located on 8 wooded acres in Cold Springs Ranch, a gated community adjacent to Pisgah Natl Forest in beautiful western North Carolina. At an elevation of 4,000', this is a hiker's paradise, only 4 mi from the Appalachian Trail. Near to Asheville attractions, not far from Smoky Mountains Natl Park, we are in a private rustic setting, yet still keep up with the rest of the world (when we want!) with basic wireless satellite internet. Though cell service is patchy here, we also have a dependable "land line" . There are more pictures of our home and life here on Facebook, and our closest neighbor has a live weather camera on his , .
