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 our brand new backyard camping experience CAMP YONDERWAYS

Stay Yonderways where the crisp mountain air fills your soul and where serenity is restored on your private deck by a mountain stream.

Yonderways' News

propertysupers logo


Three years ago when we purchased this property we had drastically different plans for how Keith's corporate career would play out, and how we would waltz seamlessly into retirement with finances squared away and living our dream of owning a little mountain homestead with a guest house we would occasionally offer to friends and family.

"The best-laid plans of mice and men..." blah, blah, blah ~ Renovation costs doubled, Keith lost his corporate job, and soon after moving in we gained custody of our toddler granddaughter. LIFE GOT we started our own company.

We're up at dawn feeding pigs and chickens, caring for our now 5yo granddaughter, greeting guests, washing linens, cleaning toilets, and having a BLAST. We're providing a much needed service in our tourist area for remote vacation home owners, in addition to maintaining The Acorn and Camp Yonderways.
