Property description

A Magical Farm in the Smoky Mountains where Nature Rejoices . . .

Experience the comfort and coziness of a 1920’s farmhouse nestled amongst the Great Smoky Mountains. Recently renovated to include all of the comforts of home, The Gardener's House at Frog Holler combines a beautiful farmhouse with gardens, ponds, breathtaking mountain views on all sides and farm life to it’s fullest! For a virtual tour and more pictures, please visit frogholler.net or our Facebook page recent photos: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Gardeners-House-at-Frog-Holler/155119767912782?sk=photos_stream Experience real 'country living' with cows, horses and chickens lazily grazing on neighboring mountainside pastures.

Enjoy a very special breakfast of fresh eggs from the many exotic pasture-ranged chickens at Frog Holler. Our eggs are the healthiest available, with bright orange yolks and flavor like you have never tasted before! Our spoiled and happy birds range through mountain pastures and fields, eat certified organic veggies and fruits and are not confined to fences. Delight in fresh-picked vegetables straight from the garden, such as Honey Select Corn, over a dozen varieties of squash and tomatoes, eggplant, okra, lettuces, a large variety of greens, brocolli, cauliflower, swiss chard, beets, cabbage, garlic, potatoes, and numerous varieties of beans, just to name a few. Frog Holler is a fully-functional farm with gardens of organic flowers, herbs, fruits and veggies, including a delicious array ranging from varieties found in Grandma's garden to the exotic. Imagine 100% organic produce straight from the garden to your table! If you have not experienced this before, you are in for a real treat. You cannot buy food like this in the grocery store!*

Relax on the porch swing or rockers while songbirds flutter amongst the flowers and birdhouses. Be mesmerized by the large variety of butterflies floating amongst the many blooms. Curl up in bed on evenings cool enough for a light blanket, even in July! Just open the windows for the cool nighttime breezes and experience 'Mountain Air-Conditioning!' Be lulled to sleep by the night sounds of the frogs’ lullabies and the waterfall outside your bedroom window. You may even hear the mournful wail of a coyote in the distance.

Amongst the beautifully landscaped flower and vegetable gardens are two ponds, a large one in the garden area and another tableside by your kitchen window! Be greeted at your kitchen table each morning by almost 2 foot long Koi fish from their window-side pond. Stroll down lavender-lined paths through gardens strewn with fountains and statuary. Enjoy all the comforts of a home, not a rental. You should find just about everything you need for a comfortable and memorable stay.

WEDDINGS AND SPECIAL FUNCTIONS AT THE HOLLER! Enjoy the entire farm for use as a very special fairytale wedding and honeymoon, anniversary party, fundraiser or other special event! The entire farm is flat and in a secluded location with beautifully landscaped grounds--all for a very low price. Packages start at $999.00 and include three nights or more in The Gardener's House and use of the entire farm for your special function.

*Complimentary produce, eggs and flowers harvested by owners, provided when available/in season.

Pets always welcome with responsible pet owners.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Robyn Cammer, Rental Manager for The Gardener's House, which is family owned. Robyn moved to the beautiful Smoky Mountains from Virginia Beach, Virginia in 1999 with her parents to enjoy mountain and farm living.

Why the Owner Chose Waynesville:
The farm is in the middle of just about everything! Even though it is in a very rural area of farms surrounded by beautiful mountains, it is only minutes from Downtown Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Lake Junaluska and Asheville and all their great events--The best of both worlds. If you want a trip to the city, you are 20 minutes from Downtown Asheville. We are just over the mountain from Maggie Valley--about 10 minutes, just 12 minutes from Downtown Waynesville and 5 minutes from Lake Junaluska! And being only 2 miles from Interstate 40 gets us everywhere really fast and easy. Also great in challenging Winter weather since the road is not steep to get in and out of the farm.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The farm offers a serene atmosphere to get away from it all. Become another one of our wonderful regular guests who visit each year! Enjoy fresh veggies, fruit, flowers and eggs from the farm. It does not get any more 'Local' than that! The farm is teaming with songbirds and much wildlife, butterflies, frogs, bees, hummingbirds, not to mention the surrounding mountain pastures with cows and horses, chickens. Just sitting on the deck in the afternoon is an experience you will not soon forget. There is so much activity between all the beautiful flowers. Enjoy a bonfire by the pond at night while listening to a multitude of frogs', coffee on the deck in the morning next to the waterfall and koi pond while enjoying the mountain views. All of this is just minutes from great hiking, rafting, art galleries, festivals, and so much to do you will want to return again and again like many of our repeat guests (and like we did!).
