Interaction with guests
Our home is on the 117 acre wildlife preserve, and we are available during your stay. We have information on what to see and do in the area, and are happy to have you for cocktails if you are interested at our home. We built a 75' gaff-rigged schooner in California ourselves, sailed to the Virgin Islands and chartered our boat for 14 years, taking guests on an all inclusive week's cruise. We also built a home in Hull Bay, St. Thomas and did weekly rentals there. We enjoy sharing our sea stories (true) with any guest who wants to visit us during their stay.

About the neighbourhood
Deer, a variety of birds, bunnies, waterfowl, turkeys, squirrels, and the occasional red fox or bear are our only neighbors as they pass through our property. We own ridge to ridge in our cove, backed up next to the national forest. Our acre pond has five pound koi that love to be fed from our dock, which is part of our sunset enjoyment. Bull frogs and peepers sing in our small ponds, and fireflies light up the meadows with their dance. The stars compete overhead, and the dock is a great place to watch the firmament. There is no better place to unwind and enjoy nature than Eco Cove. Yet we are minutes away from many tourist attractions. We keep detailed information on hand so you can make the most of your stay, seeing all you have time for, but knowing you'll have to return to see... more
Getting around
We are 1/2 mile from Highway 70, 5 minutes from groceries and 7 minutes to Marion or Old Fort. We are the gateway to the mountains. Lake James is about 15 minutes away as are Black Mountain and Morgantown. Linville and Asheville are about 30 minutes. Restaurants abound, hiking, art centers, waterfalls, zip lines, snowboarding, kids play centers, shopping, and everything you'd want to see and do on a vacation in Western North Carolina is nearby!
