It's hard to imagine that the vision for Yewit Center was birthed through a fairytale romance that began in Venice, Italy in the Spring 2010. Ursula and I met while working on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean. Ursi was a chief nurse and I a musician. Well, as you can imagine one thing led to another.......We spent a lot of time visiting different ports but none as memorable as our several visits to Venice. When our contracts ended Ursi came to meet my family which had relocated to the mountains of Hayesville, NC over the last decade. During that trip Ursi and I knew that we wanted to be together but there were difficulties. Ursi was raised in Switzerland with sometime in Africa and was currently living in Manchester, England. I was raised on Long Island, NY and had lived in many locations in America and Europe. Then one day as we were looking at properties we came across what would become Yewit Center. Ursi relocated to Young Harris, GA and we dedicated ourselves to the vision of Yewit Center. The first event was a wedding on March 31, 2012...it was ours. With friends and family from both Europe and America attending on these spectacular grounds we truly had our most fondest of all memories! It is our hope to provide for you a venue or vacation spot that will be truly a wonderful memory as ours already is for years to come. God Bless!
