About Terri

Growing up on the original 103 acre farm, Terri has a true passion for what she and her husband of 28 years have ventured into.  Though the farm has dwindled in size, Clay and Terri Vick still maintain and operate 17 acres as a horse boarding facility, keeping their own horses as well.  Realizing horses were going to be a huge part of our lives we created Willow Pond Stables 19 years ago.  Now we are excited to offer A Cottage at Willow Pond for others to share our joy in this wonderful place we live.

Terri purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Terri chose Smoky Mountains

The house has been part of the family for 50 + years.  Terri's grandfather raised a large family on this farm.  It was his wish to continue to have horses and family here.  He would be pleased to know people can come enjoy what he started.

What makes this cottage unique

Off the beaten path, yet so close to all conveniences.  Nestled in a beautiful valley, horses all around the property.  Enjoy nature at its finest, fox, deer, frogs, fish, and occasionally a duck in the pond.  Sounds of horses grazing just outside the front door.  Goats, chickens and miniature horses are on the property too! Only 5 minutes to restaurants, gas, movies, grocery and shopping.

Tranquil setting but close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a very nice stay at the cottage. We probably could have wasted the day away drinking coffee and just taking in the relaxing setting. The cottage was well appointed with the basic necessities and if we were missing anything shops and restaurants were only a few miles away. It was the perfect place to hang out after our daily trips exploring Asheville. We didnt catch any fish but we had fun trying.. Would book again for a return trip.

Beautiful Setting

  • 4 of 5

It's really a cute little cabin. The setting is really beautiful too although right before you get to it, they have neighbors who looks like they're starting a junk yard...

The cabin was clean and perfect for what we needed. We were dropping my son off to camp that weekend. We had two couples and two kids. One 12 years old and one one year old. I brought a pack and play and my son slept on the couch in his sleeping bag. He said it was comfortable enough. I think the couch pulled out but our experience is that the couch is usually more comfortable.

My only compaint with this rental was the early check out. It was 10:00 am, no exceptions. We are not early risers. We really enjoy taking our time in the mornings and this checkout didn't allow for that...

This is our second year staying at this charming cottage. Very relaxing and comfortable. We enjoyed walking around the property, visiting the horses and the barn cat, We even grilled out for dinner one night! Thank you for your kind hospitality, It is very nice to have a little taste of peaceful, country living so close to the city! See you next year!
