Property description

Mountains & Meadows at Turkey Pen is the perfect destination to enjoy with your family and friends, especially if you are looking for a private retreat. We also host events on the fields of this 250 acre pristine property, surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest. The creeks, ponds, barns, & undisturbed private mountains offer a peaceful, private backdrop. Camping is available. Guests are welcome to bring their personal horses for horseback riding The property borders miles of national forest trails. Camping & Events have separate fees, inquire about pricing

Our cabin sits on a hilltop overlooking pastures with horses, waterwheel, fishing pond, and stream. While sitting in a rocking chair, or swinging on the porch swing, you will enjoy the panoramic mountain views. The quietness offers a relaxing and tranquil vacation.

Our secluded 250 acres of heavily wooded forest borders the Pisgah National Forest. 'Turkey Pen' trail-head is where Native Americans once gathered wild turkeys. We still unearth arrowheads today and wild turkey sightings are a regular occurrence.

As a participant in North Carolina's Stewardship Program, we are committed to preserving wildlife and enhancing the land. During your stay you will see many species of birds, wild turkey, deer, and other wildlife.

We offer private hiking trails that adjoin the National Forest. There are also Blue Ribbon trout streams that are accessible from these trails. Bring your own horse if you want to. We offer a separate pasture with a stream to accommodate your horse. However, we do not provide shelter or stalls.

While we do offer a private retreat, we are conveniently located to Brevard, Asheville, and Hendersonville, NC, that are just minutes away.
