Property Description: 

A Place of Healing and Rejuvenation:  Even the earliest travelers to Western North Carolina knew that they couldn’t simply pass through this part of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

You’re Among Friends: Residents of Kenmure have the best of both worlds: They can enjoy the quiet tranquility of a hike on our walking trail, or they can compete with one of our many groups on the golf course or in an organized pickleball tournament.
