              Year round activities make historic Valle Crucis an excellent vacation destination or simply a great place to get away.

               

              Owner info

              About the owner: The Townsends are among the families whose ancestors first settled in the area now known as Valle Crucis. My husband, Fred, is a fifth generation native. Our two sons are sixth generation and we hope to pass the family farm along to the 7th generation (our grandsons). Me? Robin. Well, my ancestors date back to the original native Americans here in the valley - the Cherokee. So my ancestors were here long before the Townsends came to settle in the valley now known as Valle Crucis.

              Why the Owner Chose Valle Crucis:
              Hen's Tooth Acres Farm is a treasure as rare as Hen's Teeth. We provide our guests with a genuine - and truly unique - small family farm experience. We are close to everything yet you'll feel like you've left the hustle and bustle of everyday life far-far behind you - giving you the best of both worlds. R&R when you want it or plenty of recreation, shopping, dining and assorted things to do when you don't.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Farm fresh free range eggs for breakfast, handcrafted goat's milk soaps (made with essentail oils) and come along at chore time if you'd like to share in caring for the farm animals. You may even want to try your hand at milking a goat or gathering fresh eggs. Perhaps you'd like to take a hike up the mountain. All of this and more...but you'll not find another vacation experience in the High Country that will even come close to the uniqueness of all that Hen's Tooth Acres Farm has to offer.
