Overview

About the property

Farmhouse (Sleeps 5)...Two Bedrooms, 62 Acres of Beautiful Mountainside

Our beautiful, remodeled Farmhouse has two bedrooms, front porch with a swing, over an acre of grounds to meander and play, as well as easy access to private hiking trails. It sleeps up to five people.

The Farmhouse lies in a beautiful location tucked into the edge of a small meadow at the head of the hollow, with a small stream bordering the side and front lawns.

We are within a five-minute walk of Sandy Bottoms Trail Rides.

There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom with a step-out doorway to a side porch. The other bedroom has a double bed. A futon is in the living room for additional sleepers. There is a lovely sitting area and a handy kitchen for coffee in the morning or a fresh-cooked dinner meal.

The Farmhouse includes a kitchen full of amenities, a stacked washer/dryer, dining table, futon and cozy sitting area. There is an HDTV with satellite service and a bluray player. Phone service (landline-unlimited US calling) is available as well.

We offer over 60 acres of beautiful, private-access, mountain property for your enjoyment. There are nearly three miles of hiking trails. Enjoy easy and private access from one of two trailheads. Signs are also placed along the different paths to guide your way. If you like hiking in the mountains while listening to birds and other sounds of nature, you will love our trails. These grass bed trails are rustic and maintained monthly to remove any fallen limbs and provide a 5-6 foot wide path for hiking. They range in difficulty from level to steep to moderate. Bring some good hiking shoes, step out into nature and enjoy a beautiful slice of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We take great pride in offering a comfortable, clean, and private experience for our guests. We hope you enjoy your stay at The Farmhouse!

Rustic Charm

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Farmhouse. It is modest, but clean, and it kept us cozy and warm in the early spring chill. It is the perfect location for those intending to ride at Sandy Bottom Trails. Although there may be neighbors on the adjoining properties, the yard still seems secluded. The babbling brook drowns out all other human noise in the distance. We especially enjoyed the walk up Berry Knob (more challenging than expected!) and the fire pit fully-stocked with chopped wood. The highlight of our visit was spotting a bobcat lumbering up the road. I had heard, but never before seen one in the wild. The kitchen was sufficiently stocked to cook several meals for our family of five. We were only missing a cheese grater and a butter knife. My only other suggestion to the owner is to consider updating some furniture. Other than the futon sofa, there is no other comfortable chair for lounging and putting one's feet up after a long hike.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay at the Farmhouse in the heart of these charming mountains!

awesome weekend getaway from the city

  • 5 of 5

I want to keep this place a secret! It was an awesome weekend getaway from the city. Very very quiet. The interior is older and basic, but it has everything you need. The yard is just fabulous with a running creek. Would certainly return a second time!

A great place to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

My wife, three nearly grown up daughters and I really enjoyed our stay in the farmhouse. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and getting to see the stars at night. We wished that we could have stayed more than two nights.

Rare, head of the mountain location with privacy and comfort in the heart of nature's beauty. Within walking distance of horseback riding with the welcoming, warmhearted folks at Sandy Bottoms Trail Rides. The Farmhouse and The Cabin are only three miles from the beautiful French Broad River. Blue Heron Whitewater Rafting is a short five miles away. A beautiful seven miles of scenic mountain roadways bring you to restaurants and shopping in the historic town of Marshall down alongside the River. From here you are only 30 minutes to Hot Springs as well. All of this and it's only 30 minutes to vibrant Asheville with its abundant shopping, museums, gardens, nightlife, and myriad other attractions and amenities.
