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 Arden
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.

The only issue, I didn't want to leave!!
Clean, quiet, peaceful and exactly as described. All instructions were provided, location was easy to find and EXACTLY what we were looking for. If you are looking for quiet time in a peaceful setting, this is the place for you!!
Thank you Terri for a wonderful weekend!!
The house is nicely furnished and there was plenty of space for 4 adults. It was so relaxing to sit outside and look at the horses and the pond. Plenty of cooking items and dishes for everything. Made you feel right at home.
Deserves 10 stars!
This home was everything as it was described by the owner and more. It is an older home filled with love and every amenity you could want. It was immaculately clean. We were so pleased to find a fully functioning kitchen, a great fireplace, 2 bathrooms with good showers, comfortable beds and everything else we needed. The home is so well thought out.
And I have not yet described the grounds! We sat on the front porch every morning sipping coffee and listening to the birds as the horses grazed in the pasture. We walked up to the barn. This was the most relaxing home. It is also very close to Biltmore Park with an amazing movie theater and good restaurants. We particularly like 131 Main and the Thirsty Monk. This is the perfect location between Asheville and Hendersonville both are just 15 minutes away.
The house is decorated with horse memorabilia which our daughter particularly enjoyed. We did a lot of cooking and brought many of our own supplies. This was not really necessary for normal use but we did some holiday cooking. The owners were outstanding and responded to our one small request "where can we find the kettle?" immediately.
We can not wait to go back. Do not hesitate to book this home.
Thank you for the great review!
Awesome place to stay. Very peaceful and relaxing. We loved being able to enjoy watching the horsess. Cottage was very convent to Biltmore. Hope to stay again
Love this place.
Second year at the cottage and we love it. Got snow this year which made the hot tub great. House is very cozy and we love hanging by the fire. One weekend just isnt enough. Close enough to Asheville to enjoy town without the city hussle.
Well-run, clean and with a view that is just delicious!
Imagine waking up each morning and seeing the horses (yes, this is a horse-farm!) outside the kitchen window. A rooster crows. The occasional bark of a dog. Morning in the country has begun. This cottage was roomy with 4 adults. It is close to the well-known sites. And the hosts are very friendly. I hope we can come back for another visit.
Thank you Terry! You all were great guests. We would enjoy having you come visit again.
