Property type cabin

About the property

Master Suite,2 Baths, Loft With 3 Beds On 47 Acres With Ponds, Streams,&Serenity

Enjoy the warmth and restorative simplicity of true log cabin living while pampering the body with organic toiletries and luxurious bath and bed linens. The sound of the waterfall, the ducks milling about on the ponds, and the quiet rhythm of life on the farm is wonderful for relaxing the mind and body.

Located just 10 miles west of Brevard, North Carolina, this beautiful log cabin is part of Falling water Farm, a private equestrian estate that is nestled in its own secluded valley. Large picture windows frame meticulously maintained pastures bordered by streams and springs that flow into a pond located directly in front of the cabin. The covered porch overlooks a waterfall that is beautiful to look at and soothing to hear, especially as one drifts off to sleep. Come morning, enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the horses graze and the ducks dabble for their breakfast on the pond. Guests are welcome to walk the property and under the owner's supervision, meet the horses.

The cabin has an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining, and living room area. This design feature takes full advantage of the floor-to-ceiling windows to offer unrestricted views and a feeling of connection with the land and life that surround the cabin. The living room is tastefully furnished with a couch and matching recliner as well as a rocking chair. In addition, there is a flat screen television with Direct TV satellite and a DVD player.

The master suite downstairs has a king size bed, walk in closet, and private bath. The soothing sound of the water is particularly nice in this bedroom. Upstairs is a roomy loft area with another full bath, a queen bed as well as two single beds. One of the single beds can be collapsed and moved out of the way if not needed. The cabin is air conditioned and separate temperature controls in the master bedroom, loft, and great room ensure maximum comfort during the summer months.

The Kitchen is equipped with a microwave, electric range, refrigerator with an ice maker, dishwasher, blender, and coffee maker. There is also a stacked washer and dryer unit. Additionally there is a barbecue grill and outside dining area located behind the cabin in its private yard. Access to the property is private, entry is via an electric gate. Guests are assigned a unique entry code prior to their arrival.

Located just off of Hwy 64, we are convenient to Cashiers, Sapphire, Lake Toxaway, and Highlands to the West, Brevard and Hendersonville to the East, Asheville to the north, and the upstate of South Carolina to the South. All of these locations have a lot to offer from great restaurants to great antiquing. The major hubs of Atlanta to the south and Charlotte to the east are both only 2 1/2 hours drive away.

Transylvania county is the land of waterfalls and hiking, biking, cycling, and sightseeing destinations are literally only minutes away. For hikers and mountain bikers, Jocassee State Park is only 2.3 miles down the road and for cyclists there are miles of bike routes all through Transylvania county. Should fly fishing, tubing, or kayaking interest you, both the Davidson river and the French Broad Rivers are just minutes away. For the horse enthusiast, there are several stables in the area that offer trail rides, but reservations are a must. We are also close to DuPont State Forest, Pisgah State Forest, and Caesars Head State Park. The Biltmore Estate with its winery, grounds, and gardens in Asheville is only 35 miles north.

Because of the numerous water features and four legged animals already on the property, we are unable to accommodate children or pets. But if you are looking for a place geared towards the adult traveler, Falling Water Farm is for you.

Idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

Terrific host and property. Our second year coming here in December. Exquisitely maintained property, equestrian areas. Extremely comfortable linens and bedding complement the quiet and serene place to rest and rejuvenate. Attentive host who provides special touches and details (fresh baked cookies!). Thanks for a great stay.

So much better than a B&B.... fabulous location and accommodations are 5 star!

  • 5 of 5

We can’t say enough about our stay at this beautiful cabin and property. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and we were so blessed to spend 4 days in this hidden gem. The cabin was immaculate and everything from the sheets to the towels to even the coffee was top notch! Ilsee is an incredible, caring, and thoughtful hostess who pays great attention to detail and takes pride in her beautiful vacation home. The location is convenient to Brevard and neighboring towns.... as well as the DuPont and Gorges forests. The cabin was an oasis to us each night we came back from our excursions. Ilsee greeted us back with the best chocolate chip cookies ever and was just a call away if we needed anything. Each morning I looked forward to sitting out on the porch listening to the serene waterfall and taking in the view! We can’t wait to book our next trip! Don’t hesitate to book yours ... you won’t be disappointed!

Beautiful mountain stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was too brief, just two nights. The cabin was perfect--large, clean, well-appointed--and the property beautiful, there were also the fresh-baked cookies from Ilse. If we had known ahead of time that Transylvania county would be the highlight of our trip we would have stayed longer, so we could have explored the area more. Ilse has a great binder that includes information on many activities in the area. It is a great place to start when planning your outings.

Peaceful hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

Loved Ilse's A frame guest house. Clean, comfortable, cozy, and Ilse is wonderful. She baked cookies upon arrival, delicious orange and almond scones for breakfast, and showed us around her beautiful farm estate. Inspiring and awe stuck by the whole experience. We will be back!

Amazing property and perfect hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here and it was just as amazing as the first. The cabin feels like a home away from home, and being a horse lover, i got to see her horses grazing in the field every night. We highly recommend this cabin as a spot to stay on your vacation. The location has a great access to Pisgah national Park, Sapphire, Brevard, Hendersonville and Asheville. Thanks again Ilse for a wonderful experience.
