We are located in a remote forest in the Appalachian Mountain region of North Carolina. We're a married couple who adores Nature, animals, and offering experiential learning opportunities for others. We have 13 happy chickens, an 11 year-old lab mix, 4 Koi in our pond and six cats. We also have a separate building on the property called our "cat cottage" where we foster rescued kittens who are born from stray cats or abandoned by owners.
Our cabin is surrounded by 22 acres of forested land with four creeks (some livable space and some protected for wildlife). The work we need help with will be varied, such as creating a Holz Hausen from logs we split for the Winter, some animal care, creating a cat outdoor tunnel from the catio, and more!
If you're interested, we'd love to chat with you on the phone to offer more details and make sure we're all a good fit for each other.
Because we are in a forest, our space is 100% Smoke and Drug Free. We do not allow pets to come so that we can avoid stressing our animals.
We look forward to hearing from you with any questions you may have for us!

On your two days off a week, we'd be happy to point you in the direction of awesome hikes through our favorite spots - Grayson Highland State Park where wild ponies roam - and along the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. You can go to one of the oldest rivers in the US (oddly called The New River) to take a picnic and tube or kayak down the river.
Our closest town, West Jefferson, is only a ten-minute drive and has shops, restaurants/pubs, and a lounge movie theater. Boone, about a 25-minute drive, is a fun college town with a great yoga studio called Neighborhood Yoga; while Blowing Rock, about a 40-minute drive, is a quaint village for shopping, eating and great hiking spots. You might also enjoy our local Farmer's Markets each Saturday, both in West Jefferson and in Boone.
There is ziplining close by, if you would like to see the mountains from a bird's eye view.

There is a shuttle from the airport into Boone called Hickory Hop. We can pick you up at their drop off location (Enterprise) in Boone. There is also a Greyhound service that will drop you off in Boone where we can pick you up. If you have your own car or a rental, great, we'll give you directions as we talk more.
We provide internet/wifi service.
