This house is styled after an Italian villa I stayed at in Spello, but this "villa" fits perfectly in the Appalachian Mountains. Walk the trails of the historic Rhododendron Lake or hang out at the Appalachian Coffee Company for some organic coffee (in the evenings go for a locally brewed beer). Both are less than 1 mile from the house (a 10 minute walk). Historic downtown Hendersonville features a serpentine street lined with trees, floral planters, thriving specialty shop. A great location!
