In the Cashiers Highlands area, porches with a view are meant to be enjoyed. The New-Old Barn built in July has become one of our favorite places for pictures and to sit and watch the day turn to night. Western North Carolina is unique because even in the hottest Summer months it is still enjoyable outside. All you need to do is find a spot of shade and it makes all the difference. The porch is not only a wonderful spot for “the wedding dress” picture, but it is also great for group pictures. The barn was built over a two week period of time and we used barn wood from an old tobacco barn in Hayesville, NC that was falling down. If you are interested in a quick game of checkers, let us know. There is a checkers table there too!
