Some pictures of the house

Hi All, We thought we would share some pictures. Montreat is a unique place. Nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina, lies a community of about 700 permanent residences, with the college and the conference center. There are about 450 students at this campus where I work - the rest are in Asheville and Charlotte and during the summer months, the conference center attracts thousands of people who come from all over for church retreats. In years' past, the college and the conference center were one entity but they split during the 1960s I believe. I am only a mile from work and sometimes I do walk though it is more convenient driving. There is much wild life here - black bears, foxes, and plenty of deer.

The Teo Christian Academy (yes the government requires us to name our school and that is the official name) - the best teacher, the best female student and the best male student. Picture taken by the principal :-)

The teacher taking a break for a good cause. We are depending on the wood burning fireplace to keep us warm throughout the winter.

Our maid took this picture - just kidding. Two bedrooms on the first floor and three on the second floor. So when are you coming to visit?
