    Hello, we are Eric and John (and Duke!)

    We have hosted workawayers for several years now and have done some fun and creative projects (labyrinth, trails, landscaping, creating a meditation studio and have had only wonderful times.)

    Recently we sold our arts snd crafts cottage and purchased a block house just down the road on the Pacolet River in Tryon. We are reclaiming this acreage from so e Kudzu and a few years of neglect during the pandemic. To start, we recently planted over 100 trees and shrubs and have a bunch to go. We have ideas, but as always reach out for new ones, often from those that visit us.

    This new home is modest and we all share a bath, but we are putting in an outdoor shower. We have lots of land to create some fun outdoor spaces (again looking for encouraging ideas!)

    We are excited about the possibilities here and are hoping for a few dinner parties (a la Chocolat) by the river.

    We are about 40 minutes from Asheville, NC and the same to Greenville, SC. Tryon is a great small town with much more than you would imagine, including lots of nearby hiking.

    Eric practices Acupuncture and herbology in Greenville and is opening a practice in Tryon (some of these pictures are the outdoor space at office, where there are some other fun projects to explore. He is an accomplished Massage practitioner and practices Salsa and Tai Chi. John is a recovering business exec, who spends time on a couple of non profit boards and working on the future.

    We want workawayers staying with us to be members of our family while staying here, and we have certainly been fortunate in our experiences so far having hosted people from Europe, Asia and the US. We are not tech oriented, prefering conversation and reading to movies and phones. We think that folks visiting us here in Tryon will find a small town reminiscent of time past.

    Also, Eric loves to speak spanish and will teach anyone salsa.

    And, anyone staying with us will benefit from time with our wonderful Boston Terrier, Duke.

    Our home is on a blank slate of land that is need a lot of love and attention. Additionally, we will have projects including creating pathways and water features. As well, we are always interested in and encourage ideas from our workaways and guests for new projects.

    There is a lot of natural beauty in this area, some great hiking in the mountains with the Green River Gorge nearby. This is a must see.

    Tryon is a great small town with a private library, little movie theater, restaurants and a fine art center. Asheville and Greenville are both great places within an hour to explore.
