4 Star AccreditationThis 4-bedroom, 3 bath subsistence farm is located on 13 acres of beautiful rolling mountain property with so much to do you'll spend most of your time right here.

There are animals, fishing ponds, gardens, fruit trees, hiking trails and a shooting range all on the property. The "Farm Stay" experience has a resident horse, trout, catfish, bluegills, pigs and free-range chickens, ducks and guineas. Lots of fresh eggs, berries and produce you are welcome to sample.

A very comfortable modern farmhouse with a two-car garage, a big barn and an optional finished living unit in the basement. A complete unit with a kitchen, 3 beds, a bathroom and a private entrance. Ideal for families vacationing together or just for extra kids. A great place for home schooling. Lots of fun things to do and learn any time of the year.

Easy access to the main floor with only 3 steps plus a wheel chair ramp makes this ideal for old and young alike.

Pets are conditional. Ask first about the unique situation here on the farm with all my animals.

This estate is very private and secluded yet we are close to the small towns of Waynesville, Maggie Valley and Cherokee. Close by there is shopping, antiquing, river rafting, fine dining and Lake Junaluska. Only 3 miles from route 40 which will take you 30 miles east to Asheville or 80 miles west to Knoxville. Close to 3 different entrance points to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Smokey Mountain National Park. Nine miles from Cataloochee Valley where Elk can be seen every afternoon. The Cherokee Reservation with Harrah’s Casino is an easy day trip.

At 3100 ft it is usually cool enough to just open the windows. However, there is a "Green" geothermal heat pump that provides winter heat and ac when needed. There is a beautiful mountain view from your bedroom window and from the wrap around deck. Close by places for fishing, hunting, skiing, wildlife viewing, horseback riding, museums, sightseeing, rafting, tubing and more. Inside and out there is wireless high-speed internet, DirecTV and your own private land line to use when cell service is weak.

Off season rates are very negotiable.

The basement quarters are optional for groups of more than 7.

Let’s talk and I will explain how we can make a deal based on your specific wants and needs.
