Hot Springs farmhouse description

Secluded Riverfront Farm Cabin-Spectacular Views

Tired of the big city lights and traffic? Come enjoy the peace & quiet in the heart of the Smokey Mountains. The majestic, mature forest and utter serenity make this a perfect weekend get-away or week long vacation spot for those looking for true quality time. It’s perfect for those needing peaceful relaxation or the outdoor adventurer.

No matter what the occasion, the Seguin farm provides a great retreat for you and your family. Breathtaking views highlight this secluded mountainside getaway with one half mile of frontage on the French Broad River located 1.5 miles from the Appalachian Trail. The 120 year old recently renovated farm house is situated on a 39 acre working farm.

The house, although old, has been recently renovated and has all the comforts. It has air conditioning. It has a full, modern kitchen with washer/dryer, microwave, full sized stove and refrigerator with ice maker. We have an iPOD docking station and AM/FM radio as well as a phone and a TV with DVD player and VHS player. We have satelite TV provided by Direct TV and high speed internet access.

Take a step back in time and experience what life was like on a farm in the Appalachian Mountains. Relax on the rocking chairs on the porch that extends almost the entire length of the house and watch the trains go by. If you are a railroad buff then you will love this pastime. There is a working railroad track that passes through the property and several trains go by each day.

Take a walk through the hay field to the river and try a little bass fishing. Watch the farmer working the field. Launch an inner tube or raft and take a lazy float trip 4 miles to the take out at Murray Branch. Or you can just relax and read a book in a hammock along the banks of the river.

The town of Hot Springs was established in 1788. The town has had two very large hotels located on the French Broad river at the hot springs that have since burned down. This has become a destination spa for those nature enthusiasts that want to enjoy a natural setting while bathing in the mineral rich waters of a natural hot mineral spring. The Hot Springs Spa also offers a full menu of traditional spa services.

If hiking is what you are after, this is the place. The Appalachian Trail passes through town and you can take a day hike in either direction or you can head northeast and go all the way to Maine. There are many other opportunities in the area and the outfitter in town, Bluff Mountain Outfitters will be able to tell you some choices. One particular hike that we like is the hike along the Laurel River to the French Broad. It is an easy hike of about 8 miles round trip and you can walk for as little a distance as you want or you can do the entire hike.

If fishing is your favorite pastime then the choices are endless. You can fish for bass or muskie in the French Broad River. If trout is what you are after, you can try a little fly fishing in Spring Creek or the Laurel River where you will find wild and hatchery fish in abundance.

The choices for things to do are endless and whatever you have in mind for your vacation from shopping in Asheville to relaxing on a farm or hiking the Appalachian Trail you will find it here.

          Year Purchased: 1986

          About: My wife Donna and myself (Tom) are both Graduate Gemologists from the Gemological Institute of America. We own Suncoast Gem Lab in Bradenton, Florida where we do all things jewelry related. We have a fully accredited Gemological Laboratory where we perform appraisals of gems and jewelry for all purposes. We also sell new and estate jewelry as well as doing all types of jewelry repair and custom jewelry design. We love the outdoors and we are avid hikers and rock climbers. Our two sons, Anthony and Mitchell have grown up spending a part of their summers here and have a love of the outdoors as well. We hope that you will come and experience the beauty and tranquility that our little natural haven can offer.

          Why Hot Springs:
          I have owned this farm for 23 years. We live in Florida and we originally bought the place so that our two sons would be able to learn to love the mountains and the outdoors as we do. Our plan worked. Our oldest son, Tony is a Fire Fighter and an avid fisherman, mountain biker, hiker and outdoor enthusiast. Our younger son, Mitchell is studying agriculture at the University of Florida and he is also an avid fisherman, white water kayaker, sky diver and rock climber. We still come up and stay several times a year and the boys come up occasionally too so we have tried to make it comfortable and homey and we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
          The thing that I was drawn to on the farm is the natural beauty of the mountains and the river. It is the most peaceful place that I have ever been to. Our clearing along the river is like having your own park with no one else allowed in. Imagine a beautiful, cool fall day with the Pisgah National Forest in full color on the opposite side of the river while you relax in front of a camp fire and do a little fishing in the river. Another thing that we have enjoyed immensely is the Hot Springs Spa. People have been coming here, literally, for centuries to bathe in the mineral rich waters of the springs. Another huge draw is the hiking on the Applachian Trail as well as the many other trails in the area. Since the hot springs has opened up again in 1999 the town has been able to support more restaurants and shops so there are a number of good choices. The white water rafting and kayaking choices are many and the area is less than an hours drive from Asheville. It truly is a place where you can experience the beauty of the Smokey Mountains with all of the comforts of home.
