The 45 acres feature nearly a mile of wide hiking/biking trails along mountain ridges bordering national forest and state game lands. Gentle to steep sloping hardwood forests total twenty-seven acres. Twelve acres contain the retreat/event/camping/glamping areas. Six acres have two modern residences, vegetable garden, 3 acre open meadow and 36x20 greenhouse.
Our southern Appalachian mountains are famous for their bio-diversity. The forests contain a wide variety of woodland herbs, wildflowers, tree species, and birds. A small stream meanders down from the ridges through lawns that surround the pavilion, pond, and gazebo areas. Our protected watershed provides, even during drought years, bountiful fresh water from a deep well.
