Why Ben & Brywn Philips chose Green Mountain

Yancey County is 77% timberland. Green Mountain Farm, located in Yancey County, is a 365 acre mountain cove with the surrounding ridge lines as its property boundaries. Pisqah National Forest, Mount Mitchel State Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway are to its south with Cherokee National Forest to its north.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Ben & Brwyn were wonderful hosts to our group and could not have been more accommodating. The property on which the three cabins reside is beautiful and includes some of the best views you will find in the North Carolina mountains. All three cabins are remodeled and modernized in exceptional fashion including kitchens and bathrooms that are amenable to groups of any size.

Between the hiking trails, caves, ponds and horses there is plenty to do on-site. Should you want to get away, the farm is located within an hour drive to Asheville and makes day trips to the city very easy. I could not give a higher recommendation to visit this property, it certainly does not disappoint.
