While many other developments became bank-owned after 2008, Featherstone is still owned by Bill & Cheryl Vernon, its original developers, free and clear. It is rock solid.

Yes, you can find some REALLY cheap land out there in what may appear to be good developments. But you must ask yourself… "Will the project maintain its integrity and the original visions? Will they deliver all they promised? Who will maintain the project?"

These are just a few of the many questions that remain to be answered.

If you are considering building your new home, you are probably dealing with one of if not your biggest investment and asset… your home.

Doesn't it only make sense to invest in the best area you can find?

Featherstone is… "SIMPLY THE BEST"!

The old saying "you get what you pay for" almost always comes to fruition.

Phases One and Two sold out fast several years ago, and we are finishing out the remainder of Phase Three.

Once that is done… that's it and Featherstone will be complete!

Be sure to read our "Serious Questions for Serious Land Buyers" page included within this flyer for more thoughts prior to purchasing your mountain dreams.

ALL Featherstone paving and infrastructure is done!

You need not worry if we as developers will fulfill our promises!

We've already done everything! You know exactly what you are getting!


Are you comfortable with the financial markets, economy, debt and the issues this country faces today?

Are you comfortable being in or near a big city if the "poop" ever hits the fan?

In times of crisis, the security of the mountains has stood for centuries.

More and more people are securing their mountain getaway location, just in case things get rough. This is evidenced with by a recent, definite pick-up in sales.

Featherstone was designed with one-way-in, one-way-out security.

Check out the aerial views of Featherstone on our website to get some sense of the security you will enjoy.

Plus, you will be close enough to a small town (3.5 miles) for the things you need.

The time to prepare is NOT after a crisis has erupted. The time to prepare is NOW!

Owner Financing Options are Available!

FEATHERSTONE has grown to 185 (+/-) Acres.
