At our farm cottage, once home to Penley Produce, you feel like time can stand still. This Great Depression Era farm house has been re-purposed to bring together lush green pastures, wide angle mountain views, and peaceful good living. The Penley family has owned this small farm and surrounding homes for many generations.
We are close to everything Asheville has to offer—Biltmore House, hiking, biking, shopping, tubing, running, the arts....the list is endless. Eclectic and funky West Asheville is just down the road offering a great collection of eateries, galleries and shops. Downtown Asheville is just minutes beyond that with a dazzling array of shops, restaurants, galleries and arts events, all infused with that unique Asheville laid back vibe. Just around the corner is the River Arts District where you can spend a day exploring one of the most active and accessible communities of working artists in the Southeast. If you get tired gallery hopping, you will find many great options for food and drink to rest a spell and rub shoulders with friendly locals who will be happy to tell you about the best local breweries.
GranLloyd’s House has been recently re-designed with eclectic country feel and Zen meditation in mind. Just renovated from top to bottom, GranLloyd’s House includes a huge kitchen with new appliances, granite countertops, and plenty of room for group dining.
The living room opens out to a rocking chair front deck that is perfect for your morning coffee and good book. The back deck is surrounded by a privacy fence with a grill and beautiful view of the pasture and Mt. Pisgah. A more complete description can be found below under Spa Retreat. The Master suite (Patsy/Sandra/Phyllis’ Room) comes with a queen size bed and a shower bathroom. The second Bedroom (Grannie Penley’s Room) a refurbished bathroom with old timey tub/shower, tile floors, and granite vanity. The third bedroom (Veronica’s Room) doubles as Massage Room with a Murphy Bed. Finally, there is a single bed sleep closet (Uncle Michael’s) room but it has no heat or air. The struggle was real.
Massage/yoga room (Veronica’s Room) has a professional massage table/towel heater/stone heater to be utilized by 'call-in' licensed therapist. Massage is available with advanced reservations in Yoga Room or outside in the private and peaceful Zen Garden.
