About the property

Farmhouse (Sleeps 5)...Two Bedrooms, 62 Acres of Beautiful Mountainside

Our beautiful, remodeled Farmhouse has two bedrooms, front porch with a swing, over an acre of grounds to meander and play, as well as easy access to private hiking trails. It sleeps up to five people.

The Farmhouse lies in a beautiful location tucked into the edge of a small meadow at the head of the hollow, with a small stream bordering the side and front lawns.

We are within a five-minute walk of Sandy Bottoms Trail Rides.

There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom with a step-out doorway to a side porch. The other bedroom has a double bed. A futon is in the living room for additional sleepers. There is a lovely sitting area and a handy kitchen for coffee in the morning or a fresh-cooked dinner meal.

The Farmhouse includes a kitchen full of amenities, a stacked washer/dryer, dining table, futon and cozy sitting area. There is an HDTV with satellite service and a bluray player. Phone service (landline-unlimited US calling) is available as well.

We offer over 60 acres of beautiful, private-access, mountain property for your enjoyment. There are nearly three miles of hiking trails. Enjoy easy and private access from one of two trailheads. Signs are also placed along the different paths to guide your way. If you like hiking in the mountains while listening to birds and other sounds of nature, you will love our trails. These grass bed trails are rustic and maintained monthly to remove any fallen limbs and provide a 5-6 foot wide path for hiking. They range in difficulty from level to steep to moderate. Bring some good hiking shoes, step out into nature and enjoy a beautiful slice of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We take great pride in offering a comfortable, clean, and private experience for our guests. We hope you enjoy your stay at The Farmhouse!

quiet weekend away

  • 4 of 5

Very quaint home in a very private setting. Pay attention to the directions as my navigation struggled.

Loved the privacy and quiet nights. Amazing star watching.

Wish the couch/futon was more comfortable but wouldn't keep me away.

I recommend this VRBO. The owner was very helpful and nice.

The Farmhouse is very private and secluded. It reminded me of my grandmothers house. We loved sitting on the porch swing, listening to the birds and watcing fireflies at night. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had. The area reminded us of Pennsylvania. The horseback riding was great. Everything you needed was supplied. If you can't live without Internet and phone service this place is not for you. But if you love being out in country with nature and solitude, this place is heaven!

This little farm house was so beautiful and quite! We enjoyed seeing all the wildlife from the front porch. The 65 acres are truly a nature lovers paradise. We hiked many of the trails.

Great location - quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Expectations are everything. This rental provided everything it said it would - a comfortable, quiet and peaceful getaway. It is a farmhouse - there's nothing fancy or modern about it. Not saying that critically, but just to help folks set expectations. Other than just having one bathroom (which does not adjoin either of the bedrooms), it's a great place for a getaway for a family with young children. There is plenty of room in the yard and on the property to roam, explore and play. While it's nice to get away and unplug, it would be nice to have WiFi, just to help plan the day, check the weather, etc. I have T-Mobile and had no signal. My wife has Verizon and had a signal very sporadically. Make a point to have most of your plans made before you arrive or to do them elsewhere around town where you can get a signal, which is possible. If you use Google Nav/Maps, I'd suggest downloading your needed routes before you arrive and have them available as needed that way.

In short, if you're looking for fancy and such, this isn't it. If you're looking for quiet, peaceful, isolated, and private, this is a great spot. The driveway may be a bit difficult for some smaller cars in some conditions, but other than that, access in and out from the main roads is easy. A grocery store is nearby and downtown Marshall isn't far. For us, it was central to a day in Asheville and a day in Hot Springs and Mars Hill hiking some of the AT. But we also enjoyed the quiet, leisurely mornings and hanging out on the porch swing listening to the adjacent creek.

Rare, head of the mountain location with privacy and comfort in the heart of nature's beauty. Within walking distance of horseback riding with the welcoming, warmhearted folks at Sandy Bottoms Trail Rides. The Farmhouse and The Cabin are only three miles from the beautiful French Broad River. Blue Heron Whitewater Rafting is a short five miles away. A beautiful seven miles of scenic mountain roadways bring you to restaurants and shopping in the historic town of Marshall down alongside the River. From here you are only 30 minutes to Hot Springs as well. All of this and it's only 30 minutes to vibrant Asheville with its abundant shopping, museums, gardens, nightlife, and myriad other attractions and amenities.
