Dan and Courtney's house was just perfect for our family reunion. It was exceptionally clean and very well equipped for meals and family activities. It is extremely spacious and well furnished for young and old. Games were available for our little ones and ping pong for the adults. We all enjoyed the farm atmosphere - visiting the horses, geese (and their babies), donkey, chickens, etc. Their son Canaan was very kind to us and helped us learn so much about the family farm. It was a very warm atmosphere all around. Thank you to the Crouse family for an unforgettable experience. We certainly hope to be back.
Perfect Getaway for a small work retreat!
This home was booked for a small group work retreat and the accommodations couldn't have been more perfect! Home layout was spacious and perfect for accommodating our sleeping needs, group dinners and round table discussions indoors and outdoors. The Mane house was beautifully decorated, luxurious and well stocked for entertainment, cooking, relaxing and learning more about the local area. The best surprise was greeting the farm animals each day! Owners were extremely professional and helpful! Although this experience was to treat a small work group with rest, relaxation and networking, I would imagine a holiday gathering with friends or family would be very memorable! I highly recommend this home and should I ever return to the area, I wouldn't look for alternatives as The Mane House would be my top pick!
Absolutely loved it!!
Everything about our weekend was wonderful! The house and grounds is beautiful and spacious. We enjoyed the farm animals (horses, donkey, chickens) and Alice the dog who came down to visit and hang out! Dan was very hospitable and they do a fantastic job making sure you are taken care of and enjoy your stay. Please reserve this spot for your vacation in Asheville!
We absolutely loved the property.
We had a great time staying in your beautiful home. Even with the weather being a little cold and rainy-the indoor fire warmed us up and the steam shower was Amazing! We cooked in both nights and had a great time. Thank you for responding to any questions we had so promptly and for helping us light the fire too. We are planning on returning next year at the same time.
Great place to spend a weekend!
We stayed here for a long weekend, and it's absolutely fabulous. It's got a great kitchen and appliances, nice fireplace. The owners are very responsive and friendly. Dan even ran a propane tank over to us when we ran out. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean, and the beds themselves were comfortable. The property outside the house is stunning. Horses, chickens, and ducks roam around. There's even a donkey. It's about 15 minutes from downtown Asheville, and a great respite from the city.
We loved staying here. The only annoying part was that Google maps sometimes takes you to the wrong side of a the mountain from the house. But that's hardly the owner's fault!
Big, big recommend for this home and it's owners!
Thanks for being great guests! We have been in touch with Google about the property pin. Im not sure why they chose to put it on the far side of the mountain. We hope to host you again on your next visit!
We had an amazing time at Canaan Valley Farm. The house was absolutely gorgeous and had everything we needed and more. It felt like Chip & Joanna Gaines might walk in the door at any moment. Belle was nice enough to give my daughter’s horse back riding lessons, Dan was very hospitable and attentive. He answered text messages quickly. Canaan was fun and helped my girls feed the horses carrots. We would 100% recommend this house and would go back in a heartbeat.
