Overview

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.

perfect place to d-stress and rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

We were searching for a tranquil location to d-stress and rejuvenate prior to the holiday season and this property exceeded our expectations.

The view of the pond and equestrian enclosures thru the massive floor to ceiling windows on the front of the cabin were exquisite. And the soothing sound of the waterfall feature could easily lull you to sleep at night. The cabin offered all the comforts one requires and the many homemade baked goodies cheerfully delivered almost daily during our stay, were an added bonus. (Ilise, I still think you need to market those scones). Thanks for sharing your little piece of paradise.

A beautiful and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property nestled in the mountains is expertly handled by the owner; very clean, excellent facilities with a gorgeous view of the pond and horse farm. Very friendly host and for three childhood friends gathering for a reunion, a perfect getaway. Numerous nearby hikes and waterfalls and easy access to the delightful town of Brevard. Especially nice if you love horses.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and were very appreciative for being able to share the owner Ilse's slice of paradise. We can only imagine the beauty other seasons must bring to this setting and we hope to experience them all on future visits. Ringing in the new year with a dusting of snow and ice on the pond was perfect for us as it is a rare scene where we live.

The cabin comforts were delightful: a warm fire, a well appointed kitchen, a master bedroom retreat for a perfect night's sleep and a view of the pasture with Cafe and Izara. Lest we not forget all the goodies hand delivered to us by Ilse!

Future visitors are sure to experience the warm hospitality we received.

Beautiful, peaceful environment

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay! The area is absolutely beautiful and such a serene, peaceful setting. The cabin was gorgeous, clearly well cared for, and overall a very pleasant place to stay. Perfect for a calm, cozy, secluded getaway. And Ilse is such a thoughtful host- she really went above and beyond with providing the best quality amenities and even gifting us with delicious fresh baked cookies and scones! Would definitely recommend this place.
