Hi, I am Steve Pearson,owner and General Manager of Logs and Stones Vacation Rentals. With wife Soony, we have been working hard to start our vacation rental business in a beautiful area that we love and think that you will too. Our dream is to maintain the 14 acres as a peaceful nature preserve as well as a de facto botanical garden. Although we live about a mile from the cabin and are here a lot during the summer and winter months, I am also the Director of the University of Miami's Gifford Arboretum and spend a lot of the school year there. Obviously, plants are important to me and we hope you will join us in watching our property evolve as time goes on. Its a very interesting parcel with a lot of diversity and beauty so it is going to be fun to maintain and enhance those attributes as time goes on. Your patronage will not only result in your having a great time, but will help us achieve those long term goals.
While we will be actively involved in all aspects of our business, we also have our friend Doug McKinney working as Property Manager. Doug's family has been in this area for many generations (you will drive on 'McKinney Mine Road' to reach our cabin!), and he has a wealth of information about this wonderful area and North Carolina mountain living. He is also a genuinely nice guy who lives less than a half mile from the cabin.
We believe that we have a great team in place, and all of us are committed to insuring that your stay in the cabin will be fun and memorable. So come enjoy yourself and recharge your batteries in this exceptionally nice log cabin in a beautiful area. We'll try to get you as close to heaven as you can get in this world.
