Last week, for school vacation, Hadley and I headed out to our favorite place in the mountains, Vermillion House at Doe Branch.  Doe Branch Ink is a writers’ retreat located on  50 acres nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Just 30 miles north of Asheville in lovely Madison County — “The Jewel of the Blue Ridge” — the retreat takes its name from a spring fed stream that flows from high in Pisgah National Forest into the French Broad River, a protected National Scenic Waterway. You can find out more about Doe Branch HERE.
