About the Property
Main Cabin 3-2 add basement becomes 4-3 (sleep up to 11)
It is located on 13 acres of beautiful rolling mountain property with so much to do you'll spend most of your time right here. 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. Check here for more pics:
Besides the two-car garage, 13 acres and barn; the newly finished living unit in the basement allows for parties up to 11. The basement is a complete unit with a kitchen, 3 beds, TV and a bathroom. A private entrance and a one car garage make this ideal for cost sharing families vacationing together or just for extra kids. For groups of 7 or less the rate is significantly reduced. Again, don't hesitate to negotiate directly with me to learn the different options.
A great place for home schooling. Lots of fun things to do and learn any time of the year with a resident guide and teacher. Choose from a list of subjects posted in your cabin. There is a private shooting range. Firearms and archery and fishing are some of the favorite activities. I have a Polaris Ranger to take older folks around the grounds who might not be able to hike the steep terrain.
Foraging and harvesting red and black raspberries, blackberries, apple, peach, pear, cherry, elderberry, black walnuts, wild mushrooms, ramps and fresh garden produce all add to your menu. Truly farm to table healthy living. Your fully equipped kitchen: 2 ovens, a cooktop with 6 gas burners, microwave, trash compactor & ice making fridge make it easy and fun to use our home grown produce.
Three ponds have resident ducks, bluegills, catfish, and trout that you can catch and release.
Bringing pets is conditional. We must talk about the issues with my resident dogs and other free range animals. Pets are welcome with conditions.
This estate is very private and secluded yet we are close to the small towns of Waynesville and Maggie Valley and Lake Junuluska. Not far from Cherokee where Harrah’s casino and Indian museum and many other activities provide a great day trip. Also, Asheville for the Biltmore Estate and lots more. And then Tennessee to visit Dollywood or Pigeon Forge.
This farm is 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 Smoky Mountain National Park. Nine miles to Cataloochee Valley where Elk can be seen every afternoon.
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 barbecue in the shade or the sunshine. Summer nights are spectacular with fireflies competing with the stars.
Inside and out there is wireless high speed Internet, High-Def Direct TV and free long distance anywhere in the continental US.
Again, I urge you to contact me for current special rates and details. Be sure to check out my reviews.
Let's talk and make a deal based on your specific wants and needs.

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.
