We welcome you to a time of refreshment and adventure at our "Dream House". Our family of five lives and works in a remote part of Southwest China. During a vacation in the States in 2005, we discovered this beautiful cedar-sided mountain lodge for sale and immediately fell in love with it.
This half million dollar property has now been totally renovated and is truly a Dream House along the New River. Many of the beautiful hardwoods were left intact to create the mountain home feel. This is a place for our family to come, to be renewed and play. We think you, too, will find this five acre setting to be a place for your dreams to come true as well.
