A Great Place For Affordable Retirement
Perched between the Great Smokies and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Hendersonville has
long been recognized as a summer resort and is today rapidly gaining attention as a place to retire. With its moderate climate,
both in summer and winter, and the scenic natural beauty of the nearby forests and waterfalls, the 17,000 residents of this
small town, with its historic downtown, have many unique shops and restaurants available for their enjoyment.
There are several residential golf course communities in and around Hendersonville, as well as a number
of outdoor recreational areas. With two excellent hospitals nearby and the larger city of Asheville just 25 miles north on I-26, healthcare is readily accessible.
