About the property

4BDRM/2BATH FARMHOUSE ON ORGANIC FARM, CONVENIENT LOCATION, ENDLESS HOT WATER!!!

A Magical Farm in the Smoky Mountains where Nature Rejoices . . .

Experience the comfort and coziness of a 1920’s farmhouse nestled amongst the Great Smoky Mountains. Recently fully renovated (2006 and 2014) to include all of the luxurious comforts of home, The Gardener's House at Frog Holler combines a beautiful farmhouse with gardens, ponds, breathtaking mountain views on all sides and farm life to it’s fullest! Experience real 'country living' with cows, horses and chickens lazily grazing on neighboring mountainside pastures.

This beautiful, peaceful home is located in the quaint town of Waynesville, with an award-winning Main Street full of cafes, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops and just about any shopping you can imagine (10 minutes).

The farm is also only:

20 minutes from Asheville

3 miles from Lake Junaluska

15 minutes from horseback riding, skiing and tubing at Cataloochee

15 minutes from The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

30 minutes from the elk and synchronized fireflies at Cataloochee Valley

A short drive to Pigeon Forge (Dollywood), white water rafting, Gatlinburg.

2.5 hours from Atlanta

The Gardener's House has HIGH SPEED INTERNET INCLUDING WIFI. It also has Satellite TV with two new big flat screen televisions.

Sleeps 9 Adult Guests but Additional Children are allowed so just ask us if you have extra little ones.

Everything you need to start your vacation is here--high quality linens and towels, soaps, lotion, shampoo, kitchen cleansers. Just buy groceries at one of the 3 major grocery stores--including the brand new huge Ingles just 10 minutes away!

Enjoy a very special breakfast of fresh eggs from the many exotic pasture-ranged chickens at Frog Holler. Our eggs are the healthiest available, with bright orange yolks and flavor like you have never tasted before! Our spoiled and happy birds range through mountain pastures and fields, eat certified organic veggies and fruits and are not confined to fences. Delight in fresh-picked vegetables straight from the garden. Frog Holler is a fully-functional farm with gardens of organic flowers, herbs, fruits and veggies, including a delicious array ranging from varieties found in Grandma's garden to the exotic. *

Relax on the porch swing or rockers while songbirds flutter amongst the flowers and birdhouses. Be mesmerized by the large variety of butterflies floating amongst the many blooms. Curl up in bed on evenings cool enough for a light blanket, even in July! Just open the windows for the cool nighttime breezes and experience 'Mountain Air-Conditioning!' Be lulled to sleep by the night sounds of the frogs’ lullabies and the waterfall outside your bedroom window. You may even hear the mournful wail of a coyote in the distance.

Amongst the beautifully landscaped flower and vegetable gardens are two ponds, a large one in the garden area and another tableside by your kitchen window! Be greeted each morning by two foot long Koi fish from their window-side pond. Stroll down lavender-lined paths through gardens strewn with fountains and statuary. Enjoy all the comforts of a home, not a rental. You should find just about everything you need for a comfortable and memorable stay.

WEDDINGS AND SPECIAL FUNCTIONS AT THE HOLLER! Enjoy the entire farm for use as a very special fairytale wedding and honeymoon, anniversary party, fundraiser or other special event! The entire farm is flat and in a secluded location with beautifully landscaped grounds--all for a very low price. Packages start at $999.00 and include three nights or more in The Gardener's House and use of the entire farm for your special function.

*Complimentary produce, eggs and flowers harvested by owners, provided when available/in season.

Pets welcome with responsible pet owners.

No Security Deposit!!! Just like a Hotel, we authorize a credit card to save you putting up funds or buying insurance.

Stays of less than one week during July and August will be available for reservation after June 1.

*SEPTEMBER AND NOVEMBER SPECIAL: Reserve one week or more and receive 25% off the regular $195 nightly rate ($1,024 Basic Rate for 7 nights). Mention the September & November Special prior to making your reservation and we will edit the total charged (holiday weeks excluded from special)

About Robyn Cammer

I'm Robyn, Rental Manager for The Gardener's House at Frog Holler, which is family owned and managed. My parents and I moved to the beautiful Smoky Mountains from Virginia Beach, Virginia in 1999 to enjoy mountain and farm living. Mom is still active with farm life and harvests in the gardens still -- at the age of 95!

Fortunate to grow up on several family farms, Robyn has continued her love of the outdoors and creative farming techniques. Since retiring from the legal, real estate and construction fields, she has developed three farms and continues to do farm consultation/design/development work in the Smokys.

Robyn Cammer purchased this house in 2005

Why Robyn Cammer chose Smoky Mountains

The farm is in the middle of just about everything! Even though it is in a very rural area of farms surrounded by beautiful mountains, it is only minutes from Downtown Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Lake Junaluska and Asheville and all their great events--The best of both worlds. If you want a trip to the city, you are 20 minutes from Downtown Asheville. We are just over the mountain from Maggie Valley--about 10 minutes, just 12 minutes from Downtown Waynesville and 5 minutes from Lake Junaluska! And being only 2 miles from Interstate 40 gets us everywhere really fast and easy. Also great in challenging Winter weather since the road is not steep to get in and out of the farm.

What makes this house unique

The farm offers a serene atmosphere to get away from it all. Become another one of our wonderful regular guests who visit each year! Enjoy fresh veggies, fruit, flowers and eggs from the farm. It does not get any more 'Local' than that! The farm is teaming with songbirds and much wildlife, butterflies, frogs, bees, hummingbirds, not to mention the surrounding mountain pastures with cows and horses, chickens. Just sitting on the deck in the afternoon is an experience you will not soon forget. There is so much activity between all the beautiful flowers. Enjoy a bonfire by the pond at night while listening to a multitude of frogs', coffee on the deck in the morning next to the waterfall and koi pond while enjoying the mountain views. All of this is just minutes from great hiking, rafting, art galleries, festivals, and so much to do. You will want to return again and again like many of our repeat guests (and like we did!).

What a unique and relaxing experience!

  • 5 of 5

"What a unique and relaxing experience! The house was comfortable and the sights and sounds of nature were worth the 9 hour drive form Michigan. Meeting our old college friends in Asheville yesterday was also great. This is a beautiful part of the country that we had never seen before. Thanks again for the hospitality!

Coming Back!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us use your home! We enjoyed sharing meals in the kitchen and the views from the great back porch. Would love to come back during the Summer to enjoy the gardens also!

We celebrated Veteran's Day (5 of 6 adults having served in U.S. Army) and 30th birthdays for 3 best friends. We don't get the opportunity to get together often anymore and this was a great weekend of making new memories and reminiscing over the old.

A Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful, well-furnished home and surrounding area! We enjoyed the quiet countryside, the animals and the beautiful views. The 8 of us had so much fun catching up on the big deck in the evenings and the wonderful well-equipped roomy kitchen. The rooms and beds were so comfortable and we found everything we needed plus lots of little surprises like eggs, salad and other goodies. A beautiful farm and it is clear the love that you have put into your property. Our dog, Shasta, so enjoyed the visit too! Robyn, thank you for making us feel so welcome and providing everything to make our trip so wonderful. Our second visit was even better than the first. The only downside was having to leave. We can't wait to come back!
