Property description

A working ranch for grass-fed Black Angus, Double Down Ranch is a 220 acre property located near Asheville, Lake James, Lake Lure, and the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area. The property supports approximately 75 head of cattle, various horses, goats, cats, and donkeys. The 8 acre lake is well stocked with bass and brim and the 100 acres of woods have maintained trails for hiking and biking. The property is conveniently located 5 miles from I-40 and offers easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Hwy 221, Black Mountain, and Montreat. The A-frame farm house easily sleeps 13 and can seat 20 for dinner so it is an ideal situation for large families or even small family reunions. The house is surrounded on three sides by decks which offer long range mountain views and a panorama of the farm itself.

Double Down Ranch is located at the foot of the North Carolina mountains just outside of Marion. It is 5 miles from I -40 and convenient to Lake James, Lake Lure, Asheville and the Linville Gorge Wilderness area. Marion refers to itself as the place where Main Street meets the mountains and it serves as a gateway to endless outdoor pursuits. The ranch itself is a 220 acre property boasting an 8 acre stocked lake, rolling pasture land, and 100 acres of woods for hiking and biking. In the immediate vicinity there is fishing, hiking, golf, boating, and gem mining. Linville Gorge Wilderness offers some unspoiled beauty, amazing hikes and access to the Blue Ridge Parkway.
