We were drawn to 158 Wilderness Trail because:
     It was located at 3200 feet on the North face of Ratcliffe Mountain
     It was  at the end of the subdivision on a quiet road
     It was a chalet style home
     It had an awesome stacked stone fireplace
     We could enjoy all of the beautiful seasons, with full Winter views of the valley
     We had a cleared front lawn with forest on either side
     Neighbors were not far away yet there was privacy for our house
     Paved Road, maintained year round
Waynesville is perfectly located in Western North Carolina.  Protected by surrounding mountains, the seasons experience beautiful Falls, incredible Springs, cool Summers and moderate snowfall in the Winter.  The demeanor of the town is peaceful and leisurely with a wide variety of interesting things to see and do. Although  you feel like you are"away from it all" you are just minutes away from I-40 and forty-five minutes from Asheville International Airport.  In three hours you can be in Atlanta for a sporting event or play.  If you don't want to rock on your deck, you have a huge amount of other things to do!    
Public schools are rated as good as are home schooling organizations that support parents and offer supplementary classes for home schooled students. In addition to local schools, Western Carolina University, Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and Haywood Community College are within a short drive of Waynesville and classes are offered to the community.        
In no particular order we love...Having a good selection of restaurants and eating out...warming ourselves by the fire when it snows (making snow cream and hot chocolate, too)...Having a great variety of hiking and other adventures at our fingertips...Having an Easter egg hunt in the woods as the daffodils unfurl their splendor...Listening to the nearby stream in the Spring...watching the forest "leaf out"...Taking short "Road Trips" out 209 or 276 or to Sylva or Franklin or Asheville to spend the day, shop and have lunch or dinner.
From the magnificent Blue Ridge Parkway to street festivals with local artists fare,  Waynesville has a wide range of opportunities to spend spare time and indulge your interests and hobbies.   Hiking, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, shopping, working out at two fitness centers, swimming, taking art classes, skiing, and community and professional craft classes are all within a few minutes of 158 Wilderness Trail.
