About the property

Gorgeous Mountain Views ,Privacy, Convenient to Everything New House--Immaculate

We are open! This brand new house is our second property. (See property # 495254 to read reviews since this property is so new. The reviews are largely applicable to this listing too, as the properties are almost identical).

Here are the details!

This home has an open floor plan, lots of light and hardwood floors. The house is clean, modern, and comfortable.

The master has its own bathroom, a King bed and large windows that look out into the woods and gardens.

The upstairs has two bedrooms. One has a queen and a daybed that opens to make two twins. The other bedroom has a queen and a double futon. The upstairs has a full bath with a tub/shower that is shared between the two bedrooms.

The living room is open to the kitchen and dining area and has a sectional couch and comfortable chairs.

The kitchen is brand new, modern and has all the basics you should need to cook and enjoy meals while staying here.

The dining area has a long table and seats 8 comfortably but is capable of seating 10. We provide folding chairs to add to the seating capacity.

The covered porch is quite literally another room! It runs the length of the house and is 10 feet deep. There are rockers and a table that seats 6 comfortably and 8 if you squeeze. We also have a bistro set with three chairs on the porch.

We have a loop trail that is about 1/3 mile long, plus some gravel roads for walking. If you are interested, give us a call when you are here and we will try to schedule a time for you to come see our chickens and goats.

About Steve and Louise

We bought this farm in 2010 and finished building our first vacation rental September 2013. We have enjoyed welcoming guests so much that we decided to build a second rental for 2015! Having a farm with a vacation rental has long been a dream of ours. We have a small herd of French Alpine dairy goats and plenty of chickens at our home on the other side of the property.

Why Steve and Louise chose Smoky Mountains

I have lived in Asheville since 1992 (except a 5 year stint in Seattle for school). I never get tired of this place. This small city has so much to offer. It is always changing and morphing which suits our family perfectly! As far as this property goes, we found it after a 5 year hunt for the right piece of land. It is a large parcel of land incredibly close to everything...not something that is easily found around here (hence the 5 year search). I love living in this area, and I think you will love staying here too!

What makes this house unique

This property is unique because you have access to beautiful spaces indoors and out. You also have access to woods and meadows, trees and views. It just depends where you decide to spend your time while you are here.

This house is also unique because it is situated on a farm, yet it so close to downtown Asheville and Biltmore Village. There are very few properties that can boast this fact. Most larger tracts are much further away or on steep land. This land is rolling and great for exploring.

Also, our land virtually backs up onto the Blue Ridge Parkway land, just look at the map. The entrance to the Parkway is only about 2 miles away and is the entrance where the Folk Art Center is. This is a great place to visit while you are here.

There are hiking trails both on the Parkway and at Warren Wilson College, which is only a few short miles away. We also have some short trails here on the property.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our annual girl's trip. Location has a remote feeling but shops and restaurants only about 10 minutes away. The house is beautiful and well stocked. We had a power outage and the owners checked on us often and brought us things we needed to get through until power was restored. Would definitely go back!!!

The property is beautiful and in a great location. We loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The property is only minutes from downtown, but nestled in the woods so that it feels like you are camping in a luxury hotel. The house had everything we needed to feel at home and comfortable. The view from the back porch was spectacular, and we enjoyed the privacy of the fire pit in the evenings. The house is clean and comfortable. We had a great vacation.

A wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Grassy Branch #2 and have only good things to say. The house was exactly as it appeared in the pictures and the description was very accurate. It was more than comfortable for our family of 4 and we quickly made ourselves right at home. Steve and Louise checked in with us before arrival and ensured any questions we had were answered. The house is just remote enough to feel like you are away from all the hustle and bustle but close enough to get to pretty much anything you need within a 20 minute drive. It was fully stocked with pretty much everything you could need and was a great place to come home to after a day of hiking, or any of the many activities Asheville has to offer. Highly recommend this house!!

Great property. In the mountains with a secluded feel, but minutes from so many great things the area has to offer. The house was fully equipped with anything you might need. Steve was only a text or call away and was super responsive while we were there. Would highly recommend!!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting. It had everything we could have imagined needing. Very clean! If we had any concerns or needs (which we did not), the owners made themselves very accessible to us. The only thing that would have made it better is if we could have stayed longer!

My New Favorite Place

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has everything you could wish for in Asheville ... beautifully decorated, spacious cabin filled with little extras to provide all the comforts of home, a perfect mountain view, and a location that is close to many attractions of the city. We felt welcome and very comfortable in this home and looked forward to spending time on the deck and around the fire pit just as much as heading out on an adventure. We are fortunate to have found this treasure in the mountains of Asheville.

Car: recommended

This property is located within 10 minutes of the HEART of downtown Asheville, yet is on the edge of a 40 acre property and a few short minutes from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The setting is rural, but not remote. The house itself is in a clear wooded area that has views and gets plenty of light. It feels quite private.
