We offer a choice of three cabins and a farm experience with trails for hiking, friendly farm animals,creek, hot tubs, and fire pits for those wanting to explore our 260 acres. We also offer seclusion and privacy for those wanting a peaceful and quiet escape.
Located 30 miles northwest of Asheville, North Carolina, near the Appalachian Trail town of Hot Springs, in the heart of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Briar Rose Farm is an old mountain farm with acres of rolling hills, steep slopes, and green pastures divided by a creek that comes tumbling down the mountain.
A true farm experience is what we offer to our guests. You will enjoy our cool evenings, sunny days, blue skies, and the choice of adventures just outside your cabin door... Or just soak up the peaceful quiet of this rural setting. Be as active or as lazy as you wish. A trip to Briar Rose Farm provides far more than just a place to sleep!
July, August, and September are wonderful months in the mountains! Cool mornings are followed by warmer, even hot temperatures at midday. Then it becomes cooler with dark nights lit only with the amazing number of stars you can observe from your hot tub or deck of your cabin. While many visitors enjoy the hiking, rafting, and the many outdoor activities this area is known for, some just come to lounge and read on the long porch in the shade and watch the day go by. Our summer berries are producing well this summer, so be prepared to pick your fill of red raspberries and blackberries. We are busy milking goats, making cheese and goat milk soap, tending gardens and invite you to share. Fall is especially popular with cooling days, fantastic color, and great nights to enjoy your firepit and hot tub. We are open all year, so think about a Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years get away for the family. Or a special Valentines weekend? Can't beat the Springtime here! Green grass, blooming trees, and baby goats! The best time to enjoy the joys of the barnyard with baby goats hopping springing, and bouncing; just does your heart good to see them!
