I'm a retired fine arts professor from Florida State College in Jacksonville. My husband and I bought Pine Shadows Chalet in 2003 for a vacation home. We posted it for rent on websites three years later, not guessing how popular the house would become or how much fun we would have helping our visitors enjoy our home and our little piece of heaven in western North Carolina. Now we have to make our own reservations if we want to visit our own property! Come see. You'll love it.
