All of our properties are an easy drive to the new Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring NC. We are proud to have such a prestigious event center in our area and it will be a pleasure for all to enjoy whether you are a rider, spectator, or simply love the beauty of horses. If horses don’t interest you, perhaps a trip to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville will make for an exciting day on the grounds of the largest privately owned home in the United States. Our area offers lots of fun activities for young and old alike.
Rutherford County is home of a new $450 million data center for Facebook. The diversity of the natural landscape includes rushing rivers, waterfalls, densely wooded forests, hiking trails, lakes and more.
