About the Property

Very Private 2.5 Ac Mountain Retreat: True 3 Bdr On Large, Rushing Trout Stream

The Experience: Moonshine Bend is the perfect retreat for plant enthusiasts, animal lovers, bird watchers, and anglers. Here, the wildlife is flourishing, the farmhouse is comfortable and the grounds provide a safe haven for you and nature, alike. Come stay at Moonshine Bend to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience with mother nature.

What a way, to get away! This beautiful, secluded, and very well appointed country farmhouse feels like it’s miles from anywhere, when in reality… it’s 7 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 minutes to Boone, 20 minutes to Blowing Rock and just a short drive to West Jefferson.

Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, this charming farmhouse has over 1000 feet of a pristine, state stocked, trout stream, known as Elk Creek, running through the 2.5 acre property.

Endless opportunities await you on the farm. Casting your line for that trophy trout, splashing in the swimming holes, hiking, cycling, playing croquet or horse shoes, even catching fire flies at dusk on a summer’s eve.

When you’re ready to venture away from the farm, you’re at the foot of the High Country. To your left, Boone, Blowing Rock, & Banner Elk. To your right, the charming town of West Jefferson. Antiquing, Tweetsie Railroad, ski resorts, horseback riding, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, the original Mast General Store of Valle Crucis, a Tanger Outlet Mall and Moses Cone Estate are all within a short drive.

When all the activities have worn you out, there’s nothing better than rocking away the time on the porch’s rockers or perhaps a nap in the hammock by the creek would soothe your soul. This is truly a place to drop out of the hustle & bustle and tune in to nature. Where deep breaths of fresh mountain air clear your mind and relax your body. Come feel this relaxation for yourself!

The Home: Come home to the Farmhouse where you will enjoy three bedrooms (sleeps six), two and one-half baths all furnished with high quality linens.

Cook your favorite meals in the very well-equipped kitchen or outside on the grill.

Enjoy the many amenities such as two cast iron stoves, whole-house water filtration system, zoned air conditioning and heating, wireless internet, a DVD player, television, plenty family oriented DVDs and family games and puzzles.

Ample parking is provided with easy access. And safety is a priority with new smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the house.

When you’re in the High Country, you just never know what’s around the corner. You could be feeding the bears in the morning, and be on a train heading for trouble in the afternoon. Families build memories and traditions that last a lifetime, all set against the backdrop of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Tom Dooley: A Wilkes County Legend: Presented by Wilkes Playmakers, Tom Dooley: a Wilkes County legend, is the dramatization of the well-known 1868 Wilkes County love triangle that resulted in the murder of Laura Foster and the subsequent hanging of Tom Dula (pronounced Dooley). Folklore and legend feel that he confessed to the murder to protect his true love, Anne Melton. Local musicians will sing and play acoustical instruments and Appalachian square dancing will be featured.

Horn In the West: This outdoor drama in Boone—which runs mid-June through mid-August tells the tale of Daniel Boone’s adventures in the High Country and the little known, pivotal role local pioneers played in winning the American Revolution at the Battle of Kings Mountain.

Grandfather Mountain: The swinging bridge at Grandfather Mountain the High Country’s premier natural attraction entertains, informs—even inspires—young and old, families, and the serious outdoor adventurer.

Grandfather Mountain, the tallest mountain in the Blue Ridge and the world’s only privately owned international biosphere reserve, is non-profit preservation at its loftiest.

A spectacular drive takes visitors to the newly wheelchair-accessible mile-high swinging bridge, thousands of feet above the Carolina Piedmont. You’ll marvel at 360-degree views of mountain ridge after mountain ridge retreating to the distant horizon. Surveys show that the journey to the other side is always the highlight of a trip to Grandfather Mountain.

A world-class nature museum, interpretive programs, and environmental habitats for deer, bears, cougars, eagles and otters offer outdoor education and entertainment. Awesome trails lead to high adventure.

The Blue Ridge Parkway

Called “America’s Favorite Drive,” but the Blue Ridge Parkway is about so much more than driving. Enjoy hiking trails, biking, lakes, picnic areas, bouldering, rock climbing, and of course, some of the most beautiful views in the south.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We both grew up in NC... We searched the High Country for a year before finding this unique and priceless piece of land. We consider it to be our "Devine Intervention!" A place to come and slow down, completely unwind & let the worries of everyday life, go!

Why the Owner Chose Deep Gap, NC, USA:
In today's 24/7 plugged in lifestyle... we all need a place to unplug and decompress, if only for a couple of days. This is the spot! Completely private, the home sits on the banks of Elk Creek, a pristine state stock trout stream. This home is on 2.5 acres of beautiful flat land, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. Centrally located to Boone, Blowing Rock, West Jefferson and the famous Blue Ridge Parkway... this home provides a great base camp to explore the surrounding area OR simply checkin, and enjoy the land and Elk Creek.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Secluded, there are no other homes in sight. Breath taking, the lay of the land & the position of the house on the creek is incredible. Relaxing, rocking on the wrap around porch, napping in the hammock, or walking along the creek bank... You will feel yourself slow down and find yourself, enjoying the moment. Convenient, to everything the highlands has to offer. 6 miles to the famous Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 minutes to Boone, less than half an hour to Blowing Rock and West Jefferson. Fishing, a dream any angler can wake up too! The music, of mother nature is awesome. You can hear and see elk creek from every room in the home. The home, or as we call it, "the Farm"... Perfectly furnished and comfortable. "the Farm" will embrace you & your family! It will make you so happy, you'll be sad to leave. Moonshine Bend is truly, a little piece of heaven on earth!
