Property description

This 3 (or 4) bedroom, 2 (or 3) bath vacation rental is located on 13 acres of beautiful rolling mountain property with so much to do you'll spend most of your time right here. Rates are variable and negotiable with many options. It's very accommodating having the main quarters all on one floor. Drive into the two car garage and go right into the kitchen. There are ponds, gardens, creeks, springs and mountain hiking trails to explore. The 'Farm Stay' experience has a horse, yard birds, fish and egg laying chickens. You're welcome to enjoy the eggs and sample whatever is in season from the fruit trees, grape vines and gardens.

Besides the two-car garage, 13 acres and barn; there is a newly finished living unit in the basement. This provides the optional 4th bedroom and 3rd bathroom to sleep 4 more than the 7 on the main floor.
A complete unit with a kitchen, 3 beds, TV and a bathroom. A private entrance and a one car garage make this ideal for families vacationing together or just for extra kids.

A great place for home schooling. Lots of fun things to do and learn any time of the year.
A real Farm Stay vacation.

Red and black raspberries, blackberries, apple, peach, pear, cherry, elderberry and black walnut trees will add to your menu. Our fully equipped kitchen: 2 ovens, 6 gas burner cook top, microwave, trash compactor & ice making fridge make it easy to use our home grown produce.

Three ponds have resident ducks, geese, bluegills, catfish, and trout that you can catch and release.

Bringing pets is conditional on several things. Must talk about the possible issues with the resident dogs and other free range animals.

This estate is very private and secluded yet we are close to the small towns of Waynesville and Maggie Valley where there is golf, antiquing, river rafting, restaurants and Lake Junuluska.

Only 3 miles from route 40 which will take you to Asheville or Gatlinburg. Close to 3 different entrance points for the Blue Ridge Parkway and very close to the Smokey Mountain National Park, Cataloochee Valley where Elk can be seen every afternoon and the Cherokee Reservation with Harrah’s Casino.

At 3600 ft it is usually cool enough to just open the windows, but we have a 'Green' geothermal heat pump that provides both heat and ac when needed. There is a beautiful mountain view from your bedroom window and from the half-covered wrap around deck where you can relax and barbeque in the shade or the
sunshine. Summer nights are spectacular with fireflies competing with the stars.

Close by we also have fishing, hunting, foraging, skiing, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, museums, sightseeing, rafting, tubing, archery, sporting clays and even sky diving.

Inside and out there is wireless high speed internet, High-Def DirecTV and free long distance anywhere in the continental US.
Contact me for more current pictures and details.
Rates are negotiable, the new basement quarters are optional.
Let's talk and make a deal based on your specific wants and needs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I retired at 65 from the heat and hustle of Miami to the cooler and laid back community in the mountains. Like when I ran charter fishing boats, I love to share my experiences here on this 13 acre mountain farm. I built a cabin by the barn so I can stay here and tend the gardens, orchards and animals.

Why the Owner Chose Waynesville, NC, USA:
I came here to enjoy the seasons and to learn how to live close to the land.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I love doing the chores on the farm, being close to the animals and protecting them. Planting gardens and helping things grow so I can preserve them and use them in my own kitchen. Keeping the grounds and getting firewood keeps me healthy and tired at the end of the day. I am very fortunate to be living this lifestyle and I am eager to share whatever I can.
