About Dean and Diane Shepherd
We are healthcare professionals who have spent our careers taking care of sick infants and children, in Florida. We have 3 children, and 6 grandchildren who have all shared the mountains with us. We are now empty-nesters, rounding into retirement, and trying to figure out what the next phase of our lives will be.
Why Dean and Diane Shepherd chose Bryson City
We started coming to the area 15 years ago, when the kids were small. We love playing on the raging rivers, most of all. Dean even became a rafting guide for NOC, 5 years ago. We live in Florida, but plan on spending our summers in the mountains as soon as we can. While we love Florida, nothing can beat a summer in the mountains.
What makes this Cottage unique
For outdoor enthusiasts, this location cannot be beat. Whitewater, hiking, mountain biking, boating, waterfall seeking, ziplining, horseback riding are all nearby, in many forms. After days of adventure, or shopping for antiques, this house offers the best place for a quiet evening, watching the sunset with friends and family.
