Vacation Rental/Weekend Getaway/Special Events venue. Newly restored historic home with 2 bedrooms/1bathroom located on the winery circuit and adjacent to South Creek Winery. This home was built in the early 1900's from wood obtained from this tract. The home was first renovated in the 1950's and electrical and indoor plumbing were added. The hardwood flooring throughout the home was also installed at that time. Daniel & Ellen, owners, also worked on the home for several years recently and modernized it to some degree, including the addition of centralized heat and air. Our goal was to add some modern conveniences but wanted to keep it rustic as well. We strived to maintain a balance between the two. You will love it here if you love what we have described. This is one of 3-homes on 100 acres. Short distance to 3 additional wineries and 10-minutes from beautiful Lake James and I-40 and about 35 minutes from eastern part of Asheville. Spectacular views; peaceful country setting; comfortable and roomy. Can also be rented for a wedding or reunion venue. $125/night $650/week $2200/month. This is an ideal home for a couple that wants to get away for a while, or for two couples. No children under 12 and pets on a case by case basis.

About Daniel and Ellen Rowe
We are a fairly typical family in that we like good food, socializing with our friends and family, but we also love to come back to our 100 acres for the privacy and nature, lots of deer. We also enjoy hiking in the great outdoors. Our daughter attends a local University. The home has been in our family since the depression era and has seen many inhabitants. The story has been passed down that Daniel's great-grandmother had to hide the livestock where the original home was located, about 300 yards into the woods, to prevent troops that had arrived in this area during the civil war from taking them. Daniel's great-grandfather was away in the war at that time. One of our elderly neighbors also told us that moonshine was made in the cellar/basement of the home back in the 1930's and 1940's. We want to share the beautiful and historic setting with others who choose to come and stay here. Also, you may even get a free bottle of wine from a local winery if you stay a week!

Nice place; exactly as described
We enjoyed our stay! The cabin was exactly as described; old and rustic, but with modern amenities to make it comfortable. Although it is old, the cabin is very clean, which is what matters to me most. The owners are very hospitable and friendly, which also matters a great deal. 🙂� The location of the property is perfect to make it convenient to many area attractions, yet it’s remote enough that we were able to enjoy seeing deer and wild turkey from the front door. We’ll definitely stay here again in the future.
A country visit
I have stayed in many place but never had such a nice time as I had spending my time in Nebo.
I loved the history of the home and surroundings. There wasn't anything left out that I might of had to run to the store for.
A very quite and peaceful 2 weeks we ever had.
Daniel and Ellen were great host and hostess and made us feel at home the minute we stepped out of the car.
Thank you both for a memorable time

A really special place!
We had an extended stay here while building our house in Morganton. The house sits on 100 acres in a quiet area of Nebo, and while you feel like you are way out in the country, the interstate is minutes away giving easy access to nearby attractions such as wineries and Lake James. Morganton, with a variety of restaurant options, is about 15 minutes away. There is a 1/2 mile drive from the main road to the house which cuts through two huge fields of the property. A "resident" herd of about 15 deer wander through the fields early morning and in the evening. The owners, Daniel and Ellen, are a wonderful couple who live close by and are responsive to any needs you may have while respecting your privacy. Their number one concern is for you to be comfortable-and you will be! Upon our arrival, we were welcomed with a vase of fresh flowers, chocolates, and a bottle of wine from a nearby winery with a lovely note that included a history of the house. A very nice touch! This is a very charming house. It is rustic, but very nicely appointed with period furniture. We found it to be impeccably clean. The kitchen is rather small but fully equipped and there is a nice dining table and chairs. A new Weber grill is available for use on the front porch. The one bathroom is in the middle of the house and not attached to the bedroom on the main floor, as with most "modern" houses. But, this is not a modern house! The tub/shower has plenty of hot water and a great water pressure. There is one large sink to share. The towels, bed linens and bed covers are quality. There is a laundry room area with a washer and dryer to use, if needed. The house is furnished mostly with lamps that you turn on at the source. One of the charms of this lovely restored home! The bathroom does have a wall switch to turn on a light as you enter and there is also a wall switch for an upstairs hall light. For house "entertainment" the living room is equipped with a flat screen TV with satellite and a DVD player. A ping pong table is upstairs. Our cell phones worked fine. Due to the country location, the internet was occasionally "persnickety", but certainly functional, and Daniel was always just a call away to help with any minor troubleshooting. In summation, we loved staying here (and so did our dog!!!). It is so peaceful and quiet you will feel like you are miles from "everywhere". It is rustic, but very comfortable, and a perfect place to relax. Highly recommended.
Mindy and Tommy are a terrific couple and extremely mannerly, incredibly neat, and a landlord’s dream.
Whether you are looking for a peaceful get-away from life's fast-track, or boating/swimming and other lake activities, or hiking and sightseeing, or visiting wineries.....we are a good choice for your comfortable accommodations.
