The Little Schoolhouse is a cozy 1 bedroom rental that is part of a large farmhouse that housed Little Rock Community School in the 1920's, then served as a farmhouse, and more recently, has been renovated to reflect a warm environment that makes use of space by using comfortable antiques with modern conveniences. The property has recently been chosen as Mountain Tree of the Year for North Carolina. It is also part of a Stewardship Farm that has cultivated trees, ponds, trails, and gardens for wildlife and recreation. The owners are retired and live close by, as well as neighbors that share the larger part of the farmhouse.
The Little Schoolhouse is a clean and quiet get away in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. You can enjoy peace and quiet; read in the wing-backed chair, write a poem, or paint plein air style in the beautiful setting. Take a short walk and enjoy the reflection of the trees and clouds in the ponds or catch and release a nice bass or bream. Search for wild turkey feathers on your walk and then add them to the collection on top of the refrigerator. Pack a picnic lunch and hike on the old Burke Rd (preceded NC Highway 18) to the pergola at Broyhill Memorial Gardens.
Did you know that the name "Merlefest" was penned by a musician whose car broke down near an old country store in Boomer? She wrote a song called Boomer Breakdown for the next Merlefest. You can ride your bike to this store on backroads and then ride to Lackey's Country Market to try some of the local food. If you are here on the 3rd Saturday of the month, that local food includes spicy BBQ chicken sold at the Boomer Community Center. Food and musical festivals abound in our area and The Little Schoolhouse is a great place to stay while exploring or just listening to music from the porch swing. We are negotiable regarding longer term renting.
As part of a Stewardship property, the owners would also like to share in their love of gardening and bee-keeping and will occasionally offer special hands-on experiences. Comfort, simplicity and immersion in nature explain much of the appeal of The Little Schoolhouse.
