Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I moved to Waterfall Farm in 1978 to chop wood and carry water and raise my two children. In the last 15 years, The Retreat at Waterfall Farm has been a retreat center hosting yoga, quilting, mens and womens, and other groups retreats. Today, The Retreat is open for families and groups wanting a beautiful place in Nature to enjoy life!

Why the Owner Chose Warrensville, NC, USA:
Waterfall Farm is a working family farm since 1977, originally raising Frasier Firs for Christmas tree, then rare and unusual ornamental trees and shrubbery. Today,Waterfall Farm produces maple syrup and offers trout and catfish. In addition my daughter and her partner produce a line of custom leather tool belts and bags at the Farm.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The view up to the top of the Three Top Ridge is majestic, reminding us that Nature is larger than humans, so we can relax and find our place amidst the green of the mountain and the blue of the sky. The pristine mountain water cascading over the 40' waterfall flows into the New River, the second oldest river on Earth, second only to the Nile. To protect this water, this ancient mountain land has been placed in a conservation easement through the New River Conservancy, protecting it forever. Come and enjoy the pristine beauty!
