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 Wifi available, along with television service, via satellite. A DVD player is also provided. 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, secluded, lovely farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful time! It was very peaceful and we loved the front porch and the rocking chairs! We hiked the trails on the property and the views were amazing! We walked down to go horse back riding which was fabulous! I would highly recommend this cabin.

Perfect Mountain Solitude

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property to celebrate our daughter's 22nd birthday; she lives in a small apartment in Asheville, and we all wanted to be together under one roof. This sweet home is situated on a rolling hill overlooking a small, bubbling creek and is surrounded by mature trees. There is ample room for children to run, play, and explore. There is no wifi, and cell service is spotty at best, so we were completely unplugged for the weekend, which was wonderful. Our kids are 16, 20, and 22, and after their initial shock at having no service, they settled down into board games, hiking, visiting the goats down the hill, and short games of kickball and wiffle ball (we hit the dollar store!). My husband and I spent a lot of time on the porches, where the running creek and birdsong provided background music. The daytime weather was beautiful, and the evening weather featured glorious thunderstorms, which made for great sleep. The kitchen was adequate to our needs, as was the bathroom, and we were all comfortable in the space.

We dined out and shopped some while we were there, too. Downtown Asheville is only 15-20 minutes away, and Weaverville is even closer. Mostly we preferred to stay at the house and amuse ourselves, though.

We did have a little trouble finding the place. Make sure you have clear directions BEFORE you leave the main road; otherwise you will have to drive back out to get a signal to call for help. The owner and manager were both very responsive and helpful, and were available to give us information immediately.

If you are looking for a chef's kitchen, deep tub, and luxury accommodations, keep scrolling past this property. However, if you want to unplug, commune with nature, clear your mind, breathe deeply, and relax, all while being close to dining and entertainment, this is the best kept secret in the area.

Beautiful surroundings!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, quiet place surrounded by trees. We enjoyed sitting on the porch each evening listening to the beautiful bird songs, frogs croaking and watching the fire flies as it got darker. A great place to unwind, turn off and relax.

The property was nice for the kids to run around. They enjoyed making smores in the fire pit. The inside could've been cleaned a little better and needs some updated fixtures/furnishings. It did the job as a place to stay for our weekend visiting family in Asheville.

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.
