Reporter Jeremiah Reed with The Transylvania Times in Brevard, North Carolina wrote a fantastic article highlighting the ongoing development and construction at Sutton Knob. In the article, Dan Schuessler provides insight into his efforts to boost the local economy through the construction process, as well as attracting outdoor adventure enthusiasts throughout the year.

An excerpt from the article:

A new development on Ivy Lane, near Pisgah National Forest, seeks to capture the allure of the outdoor culture in Transylvania County by providing visitors with beautiful homes in a remote area, while also providing all the natural recreation amenities that have made the county attractive to outdoor enthusiasts.

Sutton Knob, located in Pisgah Forest roughly five minutes off the Asheville Highway, is a 96-acre development that will house up to 30 rental and housing units once construction is complete in the coming years.

Sutton Knob is approximately 1,000 feet higher in elevation thanBrevard, containing more than 40 percent green space consisting of Hiking trails, ponds and waterfalls with easy access to Pisgah National Forest located 1.5 miles away.

Dan Schuessler, who along with his wife, Mary Kay, is the developer of Sutton Knob, said he envisions providing visitors with a “mountain adventure experience” as well as an “escape from reality.”

“We want people who rent cottages to feel like they have escaped and they’re in really kind of a true mountain adventure, near everything but where they’re staying also mirrors and blends into Transylvania County,” Schuessler said.
