On the first day of spring, March 20th this year, the sun rises right over the tippy top of Little Pisgah mountain from Cloud 9 Properties. Click the link to see other views. But, this is just a week and 2 days later, and look how much it’s moved to the northeast. I’ll take another photo on the longest day of the year (June [ MORE » ]

Colors and feelings…doesn’t bright grass green and daffodil yellow just make you feel fresh, alive, and healthy? Of course! Coming to the mountains SHOULD make you feel like that all year long. So, come! Here’s a photo of a side of Cloud 9 Relaxation Home. 4 bedrooms for a great family reunion spot.
“Or, should I say, poolishicious polliwogs, Quack, Quack!” Yeah, that’s Mr. and Mrs. Woodduck thanking me for brunch at Peterson Pond. Here’s the story: While doing some swamp drainage in the cow pasture, we noticed some gelatinous globs of what must be tree frog eggs. Knowing that they would soon be covered with a culvert, a rescue plan immediately took shape. Grab the vacation [ MORE » ]
I could rent Cloud 9 Relaxation Home and Heavenly Heavenly Hideaway cabin 10 times for this last weekend in July because of the popularity of Bele Chere, Asheville’s (and the Southeast’s) biggest and free street party. So, get your reservation plans done now! We are 15 minutes from down town Asheville. A total of 4 turns and you’re there having fun. P.S. – It [ MORE » ]
I love how the snow defines the landsacape. This is from the “big” snow on Sunday. We haven’t gotten this kind of snow in 4 or 5 years so, forget about the inconvenience, just enjoy it. P.S. – All roads are clear so you can get to Cloud 9, no problem.
or rather…Tiki Head with White Mustache…but it does look like Elvis. Just another winter photo from Cloud 9 farm.
On these cold days at Cloud 9 Farm, the cows really look forward to a serving of warm silage, chopped fermented corn stalks with plump whole kernel corn. It steams with the composting heat in the frigid air as I shovel it in the trough. Their pleasure is evident because they bury their sensitive noses in the warmth and stir it around before taking [ MORE » ]
Pyrographic Art is the fancy word for wood burning with an etching pen and filling in with beautiful colors. Here is the new headboard on the king-size bed in Heavenly Hideaway cabin, a couple’s secluded get-away on Cloud 9 property. Lisa, a spirit-filled, talented artist was commissioned to do this for me. I think she captured the blissful feeling of staying here at the [ MORE » ]
Nawwww, Only in the movies…My chickens know where I feed them and where it is safe from the hawk (I only let them out of their large run coop after I know the chicken hawk has made his rounds.) With the wind the other night, a leaning tree fell on the chicken coop. But, here come first-to-wake-up vacationers at Cloud 9, knocking on my [ MORE » ]
I love browsing for antiques, andBiltmore Village is the place to go for that and more. They have it decorated for Christmas so it looks like an old English Village. It was the craftsman’s village for living while working on the Biltmore Estate in the 1890s. The best place to eat is The Corner Kitchen because they have local foods cooked in such gourmet [ MORE » ]
