About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home on 250 Private Acres with Beautiful Views!

We welcome you to Plumlea Farm - a vacation home that you'll truly remember long after your stay has ended!

This charming home on 250 private acres is located only 18 minutes from both Asheville and historic Hendersonville and offers some of the most breathtaking views you'll find in the area. You'll enjoy close proximity (maximum 20 minute drive) to wonderful area activities and sightseeing such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore House, Biltmore Village Shopping, Downtown Asheville, Hendersonville Town Square, Chimney Rock, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, golf, kayaking, and many superb Asheville restaurants (numerous brochures detailing popular local activities, restaurant menus and maps are in the home for your convenience).

Our location is absolutely ideal during leaf season with gorgeous views from every window of the home! Plumlea also has a sizable covered front porch which offers a peaceful area to enjoy bird watching, spot a wild turkey or deer, read a book from our extensive library or simply take in the breathtaking views and relax in our rocking chairs.

You may also choose to spend your time hiking on the expansive private acreage with great long range views of both Mount Mitchell and Mount Pisgah.

For your reading pleasure, hundreds of books await, including popular fiction and nonfiction titles, books on the Asheville area and an extensive selection of Civil War and WWII history books. In the mood for a good movie or board game? We have over 60 popular adult and children's DVD titles and a number of fun family board games.

The comfortable living room easily seats six with a couch, loveseat and 2 recliners. The living area flows into the dining room with formal seating for six. Just down the hall is our cozy den where you'll find a queen sleeper sofa next to the half bathroom. This room is perfect for an extra guest or babysitter to enjoy an area of their own with doors that close from the hallway for added privacy.

Our fully equipped kitchen contains a dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, programmable coffee maker, French Press coffee maker, a full array of cooking utensils and spices and seating for 4. Additionally, one of the unique features of our home includes direct access from the kitchen to the screened-in porch for casual outdoor dining with seating for 4.

Whether you're up for an exciting and on the go vacation filled with many unique activities or simply a quiet and relaxing time away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you'll find your ideal retreat at Plumlea Farm.

We love life at Plumlea

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Plumlea 2.5 years after our first visit and found even more to love. The owners recently added a new tree swing that was the focus of attention for my two young children. The farm is beautiful, and we had fun exploring the property and greeting the cows, horses, and turkeys. Location is perfect for quick trips to Asheville and the surrounding sights. The owners are responsive and helpful. We love feeling like we are in a real home with history, and the house is well stocked. Thanks for another great week- hope to return to make memories here again someday!

A spacious home on a hill surrounded by a great community.

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, plenty of room for common areas, great working kitchen with necessities and more. Large glass windows allowed us to view the hilly scenery outside. A giant back and front yard allows for recreational time for the whole family. In total, the house was a big success and a great convenience for our family.

The owner is very nice to work with, we needed to adjust our length of stay after booking the house. Jody had accommodated to our schedule and refunded us, which we really appreciate.

The restaurant and attraction recommendations were emailed to us prior to our trip , flyers and brochures are provided at the house.This really help to make our trip more efficient with the time we have. There are also ton of books, DVD and board games for us to enjoy.

We had a really great stay and definitely plan to come back and Fletcher is a nice community with many conveniences.

Beautiful view, lovely home, great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed over a long Fall weekend. The home was clean and well-kept, and comfortable. The owners were quick to communicate and provided detailed information about our arrival and departure. The land and views were gorgeous. We spent a good deal of our time just walking around the property and enjoying the rockers on the front porch. The home was also convenient for traveling to Sierra Nevada brewery, downtown Asheville and the Biltmore. I highly recommend selecting this home if you want to enjoy the beauty of the mountains!
