Overview

About the property

The Cabin Has 2 Bedrooms And A Loft, 2 1/2 Baths Lots Of Glass Pastoral/mtn View

Our log cabin is 1800 sq ft finished on an unfinished basement. The great room has two story cathedral ceiling of knotty pine, as is the flooring. There is a wall of windows with french doors accessing the deck and overlooking a 10 acre pasture with woods on both sides of the house. Try a little easy rocking on the deck rocking chairs, binoculars close to hand as the farm birds play and sing. Once in awhile you can see our red tail hawks landing in a locust tree out across the pasture. Below in the pasture by the stream is the barn made from the rough cut lumber cut from trees that grew where the cabin sits. The great room has a dinning area and table that will seat 6-8 persons, and for your cooking pleasure there is a fully equipped kitchen separated from the dinning area by a breakfast bar. The great room is heated and cooled by a zoned heat pump, and a vented gas fireplace with a stone surround is available for the cool early mornings or evenings when that little extra coziness adds to your comfort. There is a large master bedroom with reading area, walk-in closet, and a large master bath. The bath has garden tub, a glass shower and double sinks.

Upstairs is a loft with a second bedroom which has a queen bed and a reading area with a view of the forest behind the cabin. There is , also, a queen size futon that will sleep 2 adults in the open area of the loft. These two areas share a full bath. There is a writing nook and a reading library in the loft. The loft looks out the large windows in the great room.

Tree Dance Farms consist of 20 acres, 10 pasture and 10 woods and a gurgling little stream that runs across the rolling pasture. We welcome guests to explore the forest around the cabin via the hiking trail and sit awhile at the meditation garden(which is in progress) down by the stream.

For great hiking, fishing, and bike trails Turkey Pen Road, an entrance to the Pisgah National Forest, is 0.2 miles east on 280 from Limousin Road ( turn right).

The name, Tree Dance Farms, comes from the swaying of these old, so very tall trees when the wind blows, as though they dance to music heard only in the wind. We are located in a rural area not far from stores and restaurants and recreational activities, but far enough to have our privacy. Keep a look out for the famous white squirrels, natives of Transylvania County( Brevard) .

About Jack Grant

My wife, a newly retired neonatal nurse, and I have a medical implant business plus a real estate business and a construction firm. We have lived in the area for about 25 years and prior to that lived in various areas of the US. We moved to this area for business and colleges (our kids), and we have really grown to love it. After a few family vacations at the beach using VRBO we were very pleased with the convenience and cost savings of renting someone's home. We also like to travel and the last few years have rented homes in various areas of the world. We have chosen this opportunity to share our lovely cabin with other families who want the great variety of outdoor activities found in western North Carolina. We are your vacation destination.

Jack Grant purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Jack Grant chose Smoky Mountains

Some friends had this property in their family for a good number of years. They decided to sell it and trusted us to take good care of it. It is a beautiful rural area and we stay here whenever possible. Our main home is about 30 minutes away near Asheville and having this property allows us some solitude. Also, I get to have another toy, a tractor. The grass has to be cut. Our grandchildren (11 1/2, 10, 8 years old) love to ride bikes up (mainly down) the hill and play in the stream, and build forts in the old rhododedron woods. We imagine great sledding for when there might be snow.

What makes this cabin unique

We have access to this quiet, sweet land for running away when the business of everyday living grows too crowded. Then, we are within easy driving distance to any of the many activities this area has to offer. Waterfalls! Dupont State Park, Sliding Rock, local theater, tubing, zip lines. Be in a trout stream in ten minutes from the cabin or riding a trail bike in same area. Blue Ridge Parkway is about 30 minutes away. The Asheville Tourists baseball team in season, Bele Chere street festival in Asheville, downtown Hendersonville dance music and vintage car shows during the summer, Apple Festival Street Festival in Hendersonville, Biltmore House, and much more.

Fantastic property highly recommended. Jack was always ready to assist and is a great host!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (with three small children) had a great vacation. We came to avoid the hurricane and discovered a wonderful place near the forest and Asheville. A lovely cabin in a perfect location.

Beautiful home - the pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this fabulous property. The home is beautiful. The pictures don't do it justice. And the property is just as beautiful. Plenty of green space, animals to visit, lots of quiet, and great views of the stars.

The owner Jack was great - sent us lots of ideas for our stay in advance and took time to walk us through the house and provide even more local tips on our arrival.

The house isn't the easiest to find in the dark - it's a tiny road and there are no lights (other than the fun twinkle lights on the house's deck). Jack was kind enough to meet us and lead us in despite the late hour of our arrival.

Definitely recommend this house!

Worked out perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this cabin for the weekend of the solar eclipse. Loved it! The owners met us at check-in and were incredibly patient and helpful in answering all of our questions. Everything was in excellent repair, very clean, and well-stocked. The view from the upstairs loft was both relaxing and enchanting. This cabin would be ideal as a writer's getaway. Also, the balcony is perfect for a morning cup of coffee. We even saw one of the areas famed white squirrels from there!

If you have any hikers in your group, there are lots of trails and waterfalls nearby. Only 15 minutes from Brevard and 30 minutes from Asheville, there was far too much to see and do in one weekend. I'll be very surprised if we don't end up going back again for another week - or two!

With VRBO/HomeAway properties generally, working wi-fi seems to be hit or miss. At Tree Dance Farms, it worked for us the entire stay.

We very much enjoyed our stay and I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful house to drive up to! Long rolling driveway leading up to a large parking area.

The house did not disappoint inside either! Tastefully decorated, comfortable furniture, spacious rooms and bathrooms. The owners thought of everything and made their home very inviting and relaxing. We enjoyed cooking most meals in their well equipped kitchen.

What we loved most about this house was its proximity to so many activities! Easy drive to DuPont, Pisgah, Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville...The activities are endless in this area!

Thankful we were able to enjoy this wonderful house! It was hard to leave!!

I love how you approach the cabin, with the long driveway.

  • 5 of 5

This Log Cabin is home away from home but better! I fell in love the minute i walked in. The cabin is packed and ready for who ever rents it. Its in a prime location, just far enough from Asheville and close to Brevard. I felt at home the minute I got there. The owners were so very helpful, I knew we were in good hands! There's absolutely nothing negative I can say, sorry. We've already made plans on coming back next year. We've been traveling the last 12 years around the Caribbean and this trip ranked right at the top! I hope this was helpful for anyone renting here. Thanks alot Jack! Hope to see you next year, thanks!

Quiet and Secluded

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful cabin the end of May. The day we arrived it was 90 degrees out, but Jack, the owner had turned on the air conditioner and was there to greet us on arrival. He was very helpful showing us around and giving some great suggestions on things to do and see while there! There are so many wonderful things to say about this cabin and property...it really is just as idyllic as the photos suggest. We enjoyed sitting on the upper deck and listening to the nearby goats and viewing the birds, squirrels, and scenery. The area has much to offer, but our favorite activities were visiting the many nearby waterfalls and driving up the Blue Ridge Mountain Parkway to Pisgah Inn as well as touring the Biltmore Estate and Gardens. When it rained, it really poured...but we enjoyed staying in just as much as going out...and this was the perfect place to relax inside and take a nap! We also took advantage of the outdoor grill for quick easy meals. We hope to be able to visit again in the Fall!!
