About the Property
2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)
Amazing property central to many top activities including; The Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Mitchell, Linville Falls and the City of Asheville
Sleeps up to 6 comfortably.
Beautiful cook's kitchen stocked with all you need to make your stay special.
Over 1/2 mile waterfront on property and fun hiking trails right on our property.
80-year old restored farmhouse, nestled in the mountains on the outskirts of the town of Burnsville, North Carolina.
This artistic home is situated on 18 acres and over a mile of River frontage on the famous Cane River that is stocked with trout.
Experience the 'SPA' feel throughout this home with river rock showers, full chef's kitchen and warm colors and lighting throughout. Area is rich in history and local culture. Make sure you make some time to visit local museums and walk along the town square in downtown Burnsville.
An incredible farmer’s market is held on Saturday spring-to-fall and is rich with local produce and organic products.
Pass through the town, you will continue to drive along country roads and pass picturesque cows and old barns. We guarantee a smile will cross your face and your shoulders will begin to relax.
The worries of life somehow will be forgotten. Often parked along the sides of the road are trucks where local fly fisherman and their sons are fishing for trout. Make sure you wave and say hello.
Some mornings as you drive, you will see a herd of deer cross the misty road as they come to the Cane River to drink or look for berries. Often, you will cross paths with roosters and chickens as they search for food. Watch too for small bears along the river, but please just observe!
As you turn onto the driveway, cross over the Cane River and enter the property, make a mental note of the local swimming hole on the left. It is a favorite watering hole in the summer and locals call it the “rope hole”. Good for cooling off in the summer.
Pass the entry gate, and you will see an old cattle barn. In summer months, grapes grow on the vines up and along the top of the roof of the barn. When they ripen, make sure you pick a few.
After you settle in, take some time to sit on the rocking chair porch with a glass of wine or sweet tea. The rockers are hand-made by locals. You can listen to the water as it flows over the natural rocks and giant boulders and the water passes along the shores of the pristine Cane River.
Mornings are great for walking along the path of the river located just outside your back door. Around the corner, from the house in the summer months, we grow a kitchen garden with fresh strawberries, corn, tomatoes and herbs.
Wading in the river is a must for the summer afternoons. We suggest wearing old tennis shoes or such for traction. Unlike swimming pools, cut-offs and old t-shirts are preferred!
Dinner out with “people watching” is fun in downtown Burnsville. But most like to cook in our state of the art “country” kitchen using local produce and fish. The kitchen is a favorite of most and is equipped with a double oven and nice cookware. There are plenty of plates and utensils for families. The chilly water from the tap is from a hand-dug water-well, so please use what you need conservatively.
There will be plenty of room to serve your meals from our antique 12-foot long table from an old-local country-store. Everyone will enjoy dinner as they pull up a bench round the dinner table. Entertainment optional….talk and get to know each other again.

About the owner: Farmhouse on the Cane - Burnsville NC After looking for over 2-years we found it with 'Farmhouse on the Cane!' We completed a renovation of a 1940's home which took over a year's time. This is not your typical rental home and would love for you to enjoy it as well. We also own the historic Nu Wray Inn Bed & Breakfast (Built in 1833) on the Town Square about 10-minutes away. Read the previous comments as you have to experience to truly believe it.
Why the Owner Chose Burnsville, NC, USA (Town):
Farmhouse on the Cane - Burnsville NC We fell in love with the amazing 'Andy Griffith/ Old Town' feel of Burnsville (Only 10-mins away) with the friendliest people you'll ever meet. The natural beauty of the the Blue Ridge Mountains with local farms will shave years off your stress level. We very convenient to Asheville, only 35-minutes away, Boone which is a little over an 1 hour and 2.5 hours to Charlotte, so we're very easy to get to.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The River and beautiful countryside.
