Yes, it's a 1970-built, ranch-style house BUT with lots of windows, the sunlight always lighting and warming this southwesternly-exposed home (passive solar). Wait ‘til you see the mix of retro with luxury. Walls are opened up to show off the view, no small rooms, new furniture, new fixtures and kitchen appliances, tiled walk-in shower. A tear-drop shaped rock-stamped patio added near the full-house-length deck makes outside living at Cloud 9 in the mountains an energy experience you won't forget.
What can families do outside on Cloud 9 Farm?
HOT TUB with a view on the deck! Hike the trails to our highest peak: “Buzzard’s Roost”, feed the chickens and cows, enjoy a picnic at Peterson Pond, swim, fish or paddle boat, and watch for birds, wild turkeys and deer, pick in the garden or munch on blueberries in the summer. And, if you want, help with farm chores, too. It's like going back in time to a simpler way of life. No traffic noise, no street lights, no power lines, no neighbors. Quiet.
Wi-Fi, Large Screen TV with DISH network, puzzles and games (board and video), professional size air hockey table, windows with views in every room, one step in. Great light for reading your tablet. Plus a library full of books from gardening to wellness.
By staying on Cloud 9 Farm you are supporting the conservation stewardship of the land and animals. Tours of our 'best management practices' available. On-site farm products for sale in season: chicken, beef, honey from our pollinator hives on the farm, blueberries, raspberries and vegetables in season, natural skin care products, too. Hair Salon opportunity in proprietor’s home on the property.

Kids have a ball on the farm and can help gather eggs, feed the chickens, watch the cows being fed by sitting on the fence, fish in the pond, explore hiking trails, swim in the pond, ride bikes and swing on a tree swing. Just watch out for that clear sliding glass window. Even with stickers on it at eye level you are so fascinated with the outdoors that often you don't see it!...moreless

One tub with showers and one, new, tiled walk-in shower. ...moreless

About the owner: Janet here, your hostess, and conservation farmer owner/manager (with lots of help) of one little valley of Fairview, North Carolina. Our sing-along slogan is 'Beds, Berries, Trees, Beef and Honey Bees and don't forget the chickens' which says it all about what you can find on Cloud 9 Farm. These are my many interests and passions which I invite you to share with me as you step back in time for a visit to a simpler way of life on Cloud 9 Farm.
Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
I DIDN'T buy this property, it is my family home to share with you. We refurbished the mountain top Cloud 9 Relaxation Home for families up to 6 and built Heavenly Hideaway, a cozy cabin, for couples, too. Both have hot tubs on an open deck under the stars. Just 8 miles from I-40, you can be at the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, and the waterfalls of Dupont State Forest in minutes. Quiet and private. I live on this beautiful property, too.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Asheville is just 15 minutes away for a soiree into down for a delectable meal or a great day-excursions, especially to the Biltmore Estate, but vacation renters (like we do) find that they never really have to leave the farm because there is enough to do right here; hiking, enjoying the valley pond area, picking blueberries in July, or just sitting on the huge deck (or in the hot-tub) over-looking the mountains and relaxing. The layout of Cloud 9 is very outside-friendly with sliding glass doors in every room to open with natural light and get that fresh mountain air. Views, views, views! Come see for yourself!
Master Bedroom with walk out hot tub deck. Flat screen TV also!
Den is right off the kitchen bar area and outside deck.
Quiet living room expands to the outdoors. Great for guests or workshop area.
The Garden Room has access to deck and a view.
Under the stars with views of the mountains, too!
