About the Property
4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths on twenty acres
The spacious master suite on the main level is perfect for a couple looking for a weekend away. Or bring the whole family and the house will sleep 8-9 comfortably when the three additional bedrooms are used. The large living room and multiple seating areas will provide great space to socialize with your family and friends.
The house is convenient to some of the best attractions in the area. A half hour drive can get you to hiking trails in DuPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest or Chimney Rock State Park. Burntshirt Vineyards and Saint Paul Winery are less than 5 minutes from the house. The new, family friendly Sierra Nevada Brewery is only 20 minutes away.
Because our house is located in a working orchard, there will be orchard activities periodically such as pruning, spraying and picking the apples. These activities can be interesting and educational to observe and should be minimally disruptive to your stay. Several acres of the older trees have been removed to make way for new, more compact varieties in the future. For a couple of years this land will be planted in soybeans or other crop as part of a rejuvenation of the soil. However, the five rows nearer the house are still existing. The view is spectacular when the trees are in full bloom. Take a late afternoon walk on the two miles of wooded trails and there is a good chance that you will meet my wife and me as we walk our dogs.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

The Orchards at Golden Glow is located in a beautiful rural setting but is convenient to shopping and restaurants. It’s a peaceful place to just relax or as a resting place from your busy days at all the activities available in the area. Downtown Hendersonville and Historic Flat Rock are only minutes away and it is only a short drive to many other area attractions. Some of those attractions include DuPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, the NC Arboretum, The Biltmore House, the City of Asheville, Brevard Music Center, Chimney Rock & Lake Lure, and the list goes on…. We would invite you to stay for a few days or the whole week to enjoy our mountain home.
Year Purchased: 1953
About the owner: My wife and I welcome you to the home and farm where I was born and raised. My mother and father built the home in the early 1950's on farm property purchased by my grandfather in the 1920's. After serving four years in the Marine Corps and completing a degree at Western Carolina University in the 1970's, my wife and I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to raise our family and pursue careers. We had the good fortune in 2003 to be able to purchase a summer cottage on twenty acres adjacent to my father's property from another family member. Although we lived in Georgia, my wife and I still considered Hendersonville home and returned to live here full time in 2004. Although we are located here, our daughter Alli manages the bookings for us, so your initial contact will be with her.
Why the Owner Chose Hendersonville, NC, USA:
The house is located in a beautiful rural setting but is convenient to shopping and downtown Hendersonville. It’s a peaceful place to just relax or as a resting place from your busy days at all the activities available in the area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Although this was my childhood home, it has been renovated over the years and is such a wonderful place for family or friends to gather. Most of the family agrees that the patio is the place to be. But even a rainy afternoon can't spoil the trip. Just open the large windows on the back porch and read a book or take a nap while you listen to the rain.
