Impressive is the best way to describe the Banner Elk/Blowing Rock area of Western North Carolina. Wow. Progressive with a capital P. If I didn't have very special plans at The Swag on Wednesday, I would be heading to the horse show in Blowing Rock. A few days ago I wrote about the tour of The Headwaters at Banner Elk that Margie Casey and I enjoyed last week: The Headwaters at Banner Elk … Exceeding Your Expectations. My video camera was with me on the tour, and here is the YouTube video I just posted. Follow The Headwaters blog here. The Headwaters at Banner Elk Featured in High Country Home Resource Guide. If you want your own tour, call John Haynes (828-733-8687), fill out The Headwaters Contact Us page, or reach John via email: john@headwatersnc.com. Please tell him Susie sent you....

John Haynes, the Developer of The Headwaters at Banner Elk, took time out of his busy schedule to take Margie Casey and I on an afternoon tour of his exceptional development Saturday, which development, by the way, is very active (seriously), not only with new owners’ homes under construction, but with active, buying customers. Banner Elk is about 2 hours from Maggie Valley. Why (in one word) is The Headwaters at Banner Elk actually busy, even in this market? I came away knowing – VALUE. No kidding. Your expectations will actually be exceeded. Some of the present features are: Lakes (2) and Parks Views Paved Roads Staffed Gatehouse Maintained Trails Waterfalls Lots 1 to 4 acres Elevation 3100′ to 3900′ Clubhouse Fiber Optics Based Internet and TV 12 minutes to Dining, Shopping, etc. Fut...

I just discovered the best Italian restaurant in the high country of western North Carolina.  If you're ever in Boone, Blowing Rock or Banner Elk you must stop in and see Elliott at Bella's Restaurant.  Coming from Boone you take Hwy 105 south to Tynecastle and turn east on Hwy 184 like heading to Banner Elk and in about half a mile you turn right into the Food Lion parking lot where you'll see Bella's on the right.  Run by a great Italian family they have the cuisine down pat.  I recommend the lasagna.  Great bar by the way too if you're looking for a friendly place to stop in a have a drink.  Mangiare bene!  Ciao Bella! 3585 Tynecastle HwyBanner Elk, NC 28604(828) 898-9022

Evening Everyone,Just wanted to introduce and share a little information about myself. I have been married for 22 years this Valentine's Day and my husband Philip and I have 2 children, ages 18 and 16, that wechose to homeschool since 2nd grade. It was a wonderful adventure for all of us. However, we wonder..."where did the years go?"   We are starting to feel the pains of becoming empty nesters, but  have been told to embrace the moment because before we know it... we'll be Grandparents! !I love to volunteer in my community; (so much so, my kids love to tease me bout writing a book they would dubb "Growing up with a Mom who couldn't say NO! lol) I am a Kiwanis, belong to our 2 Chamber of Commerces, and partake in all of the exciting events that our quaint little hometown has to offer. ...

Many clients ask me if winter is a bad time to come to the mountains and view property.  My answer, of course, is:  IT'S THE BEST TIME TO COME!  The reason I say this is that in winter, with the leaves off the trees, you can see the lay of the land:  whether the lot you are looking at is flat, partially flat, rolling, has prominent rock outcroppings, etc.  That way, if you are interested in clearing your lot partially for a homesite or totally for the added playing area for the kids, then you can see exactly what you will be dealing with. Also, the rock formations and creeks will inspire with you with fresh ideas for landscaping and trails to mountain springs.  You really need to walk a community to find its treasures:  the waterfalls, the babbling brooks, your special, secret spot.  In...
