Shelby house description

Your home away from home. Live in the city and tired of the traffic and busy life? Are you working in the Shelby area, visiting a student at Gardner Webb University, attending a wedding or family function? Give up that cramped motel room and come on down to Nell's Farm House.

One of the best locations in Shelby! Located on a quiet, tree-lined street just outside of town, this super-comfortable, spotlessly clean, quiet, country cottage is in a historic community on a farm that has been in the family for over 100 years. The house is furnished in a vintage style to reflect the history of Nell and her family, with an emphasis on comfort. Nell's Farm House is intimate and informal.

Nell's Farm House lets you escape the day-to-day rat race and provides you with a memorable country experience. You can relax on the porch, nap the afternoon away. Here is a place to sit back and relax while watching the horses graze in surrounding meadows. The nights are peaceful with only the sound of nature and the light of the stars. The days are opportunities for hiking, exploring, fishing, or just relaxing.

GUEST INFORMATION: Is it time to get back in touch with what life was like in a gentler and quieter time.

Nell's Farm House is your place to be when visiting Shelby, North Carolina, for business, pleasure, American Legion World Series Baseball, Gardner Webb University, Cleveland County Fair or when passing through Cleveland County for one of our many events.

While suitable for any traveler, the home is perfect for families who need affordable, flexible and friendly lodging. The home consists of two nice-size bedrooms with 1 king bed and 1 double bed and a third bedroom with bunk beds for the children and a crib for the baby. 400-thread-count linens are provided for most beds. There is a television with basic cable in the cozy den. The eat-in-kitchen contains all cookware, utensils and kitchenware, and all linens and towels are supplied. There is a large, centrally located bath with double vanity and tub with shower.

However, the greatest amenities are outside the home as it is situated on a quiet road in a quiet community with a deck off the kitchen, presenting pictorial views of the woods and surrounding pastures.

Perhaps one of the best features is the private deck, overlooking the pasture, which provides outdoor living and dining area to take advantage of Shelby's wonderful climate, whether for breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. You will also enjoy the gas grill in the evening as you watch horses, deer and listen to the Katydid singing in the woods.

You will feel safe and secure, with a burglar alarm and code set just for you.

Most of our guests are repeat clients who book in advance, so please book early. We think we've thought of everything you will need for your visit, but if not, we can help with anything you might need while you are here. With enough notice, we will be happy to stock the house with your choice of food and beverages, etc. We have lived here all our lives, so we are happy to provide any help during your stay, including restaurant suggestions, events, etc. Just ask! You will love living like a local. We look forward to hosting you in our house.

Pets are not allowed in the home, but please inquire about suitable arrangements on site. Long-term renters welcome.

If you are traveling with horses, email us about stabling nearby. Coggins and health certificate required.

LOCATION: Shelby is 40 miles west of Charlotte, NC and 40 miles east of Asheville, NC. You will find outlet shopping twenty minutes away in SC and furniture shopping in Hickory, NC with just a 35 minute drive.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1975

                      About the owner: Nell's house, located on Hafta' Mosey farm, is hosted by Harold and Debi Metcalfe, founders of Stolen Horse International, Idaho, pictured here with Debi, was stolen from us in 1997. She was recovered 51 weeks later. Her theft is the foundation for the nonprofit organization that assists thousands each year.

                      Why the Owner Chose Shelby:
                      This home has been part of our family since it was built in 1975. Nell, lived in the house alone most of that time until she suffered a stroke in 2004. She was diagonised with Alzheimer;s Disease and and passed away in 2011. Nell's Farm House relfects her wonderful life with from the vintage dishes to the pictures. We kept as much of Nell in the house as we could but also mixed in our love of horses into the house. It is an interesting mix vistors enjoy.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Peace. Quiet. Crickets singing. No smog. No traffic. Lightly traveled roads to walk on without cars whizzing by. Trees. Green fields.
