Ideal central location in Southern Appalachia for a weekend– or a life– of stress-free relaxation. Trout fishing begins across the country road and for miles downstream. One mile to Appalachian Trail and a day of hiking in the Mount Rogers National Forests, 16 miles to Marion and Lincoln Theater, 40 miles to Abingdon. Your neighbors are farmers, ranchers and a few retirees. Watch the mountains change hues from your back yard during sunset, while the chicken grills on the patio. Or catch the evening hatch.
