Fisher Branch Road, Marshall, North Carolina

Is it hot where you are? How does a summertime escape with plenty of cool mountain breezes sound? Come on up to the house and have a seat on the porch. The boys are down at the barn, they'll be back soon.  Here on Fisher Branch Road, we rise early to get our work done, then rest in the quiet shade of the afternoon. Evenings are lazy card games. Can't see the moon for the trees.  Stick around awhile and we'll show you our secret swimming hole out near West Fork Bull Creek. You can hike nearby Zade Knob and the Walnut Mountains, which sounds like a band that would play the kind of banjo/folk music we like around here. We're sitting pretty here in terms of location. It's 33 minutes to the Pisgah National Forest and about the same to Asheville, in the other direction. You know, everyone makes a big deal about the Biltmore House there in Asheville and they didn't even start building it until 1889. Opened it at Christmas, 1895. Our house, it was built in 1877. Of course…
