Ketchie uses North Carolina’s Love Valley — where Old West ambiance allows only horses and horse drawn vehicles on the streets — and some of its real life residents to create a true to life backdrop for the action.
A modern day Beauty and the Beast, meet in their fifties when a disfigured carpenter becomes a guest at a bed and breakfast in the western-style tourist town of Love Valley, NC.
Love Valley is a small town in rural North Carolina. Its genesis in 1954 marked the fulfillment of a dream for founder Andy Barker. Barker cultivated two visions as a young man—he wanted to build a Christian community, and he wanted to be a cowboy. The result of his vision is Barker’s utopian experiment.
