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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cottage during our recent house hunting trip. The Cottage was centrally located to everything within the Asheville area. Each night we enjoyed returning to the peaceful setting visiting with the animals. We could not have asked for better scenery while sipping our morning coffee watching the horses outside our patio.

The Cottage was fully stocked with all the kitchen necessities. Very spacious dining area if you choose to dine at home.

Everything in the Cottage was very clean.

Relaxing in the hot rub each night was a plus!

Thank you Terri for being so attentive. We had a fabulous time and will return in the future.

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It had all the comforts of home in a beautiful setting. Conveniently located to great restaurants and lots of activities. It was so nice to be able to see the horses every day. The house was stocked with all the necessities, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. The cottage was very clean, and it was plenty big for the four of us. We would definitely stay there again!

Quaint Cottage and Horse Farm

  • 5 of 5

We visited this beautiful cottage and horse farm this past weekend and had a marvelous stay! The owners were very accommodating and made it very easy to check in after 8pm when we finally arrived. The space is cozy and hospitable for 4 people, and we enjoyed spending time utilizing the hot tub and stargazing. The farm fresh eggs in the morning were a very nice treat! The location was great and only about a 15 min drive to downtown Asheville shops, breweries and attractions.
