This website began as an online journal of our experiences of restoring our forever home – a 1940s cabin and a barn with sleeping quarters situated on 7.5 pristine mountain acres located between Hendersonville, NC near DuPont Forest and Brevard, NC. The website now features our affordable rental cabin, THE ACORN,and coming August 2018 we'll be adding another tiny cabin and primitive creekside camping sites.

Come stay Yonderways, where the pace is relaxed, the distinct mountain air fills your lungs and soul, the summer frogs and fireflies perform nightly, and where serenity is restored on your private deck by a mountain stream.

Where are the Pearls?

As the founders of Shucks Pearls we would like to sincerely thank our loyal patrons over the last 8 years for your enthusiastic support. But due to the growing responsibilities of the vacation rental(s), AND raising a five year old (!), I've decided to close my workbench and the online shop for good. I did not come about this decision lightly! Designing and making jewelry brings me great joy, but our growing hospitality services have a healthy return for the labor, and quite frankly, as Keith and I head into retirement mode, the supplemental income is necessary.

Keith and I are most grateful and will always remember fondly this chapter in our lives.
