We are in the valley of the South Toe River between the Black Mountains and the Blue Ridge, 50 miles northeast of Asheville, NC. At an altitude of 2600 feet we enjoy a cool mountain climate. We are surrounded by government forests, which protect our water and give us a beautiful area for hiking and camping.
