Your Mountain Farm Retreat
Relax on this pastoral farm setting on a private road with eight acres and mountain views. Enjoy the luxurious, captivating interior of the converted barn with three private bedroom suites: one with a king-sized bed, one with a queen, and one with two twins. Each has the finest quality bedding and in-suite bathroom. Additionally there is a full-sized bed in the upstairs loft. Savor our farm-fresh eggs in the full farmhouse kitchen. Sit back and build a fire with our firewood and starting log for an easy evening by the outdoor fire ring. Watch the adorable sheep, spotted donkeys and dashing black horses grazing in the pasture. Privacy and rest await you at our Fodderstack Farm vacation rental, one of the very best cabins in the North Carolina mountains.
So much more than just a place to stay…
So, picture a beautifully restored, solid-as-a-rock, clean and lightly rustic two-story barn facing Fodderstack Mountain with two beautiful sweeping pastures in front of you, a chicken coop and yard adjacent to the barn, a nice sitting area near the pasture with a fire pit, a winding driveway in from the road, a grass yard with flower bed behind you and a sitting porch just off the back door. Now, add a bunch of sheep (including two babies) in the pasture along with two delightful, sweet and somewhat quirky donkeys keeping the coyotes away from the sheep. And add about a dozen chickens quietly going about their business of supplying you with 8-10 fresh eggs every day. Include the pleasant and caring owners who stop by to care for everything. And, finally, include wild turkeys, deer and a constellation of birds. And you are getting close to describing ‘our’ place for a week. Now that you are ‘here’, venture into nearby DuPont State Forest (15 mins), Pisgah National Forest (15 mins), Hendersonville, Brevard, Asheville, Horesehoe (and its fine Grill/Cafe) and other great places and you are starting to get the picture. Except you won’t want to leave ‘your’ farm – it is just that nice, peaceful and quiet all day and all night. Choose to get involved – with your children or by yourself – in caring for ‘your’ animals and you will find a sweetness in all of them. As in the entire barn and property. Indulge if this appeals to you. It definitely did to us. And by the way, if you do visit ‘our’ farm, please take care of ‘our’ animals. We left loving all of them.
