Link at bottom of page above 'Reviews'.

Why the Owner Chose Asheville: : The house has been part of the family for 50 + years. Terri's grandfather raised a large family on this farm. It was his wish to continue to have horses and family here. He would be pleased to know people can come enjoy what he started. The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Year Purchased: 2007 - Off the beaten path, yet so close to all conveniences. Nestled in a beautiful valley, horses all around the property. Enjoy nature at its finest, frogs, fish, and occasionally a duck in the pond. Sounds of horses grazing just outside the front door. Only 5 minutes to restaurants, grocery and shopping.

Owner Description/Comments:: Growing up on the original 103 acre farm, Terri has a true passion for what she and her husband of 25 years have ventured into. Though the farm has dwindled in size, Clay and Terri Vick still maintain and operate 17 acres as a horse boarding facility, keeping their own horses as well. Realizing horses were going to be a huge part of our lives we created Willow Pond Stables 13 years ago. Now we are excited to open A Cottage at Willow Pond Stables for others to share our joy in this wonderful place we live.

AWESOME RELAXATION

  • 5 out of 5
My parents and I stayed there for 2 nights. My parents are very picky and critical, and they loved it there. Everything was clean and well prepared. It smelled fresh and clean right when we entered. It was just perfect. There even were fresh farm eggs in the fridge for us. I highly recommend it, and I definitely plan to come back.

SO BEAUTIFUL!!

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you so much for opening up your cottage to our family. It was so nice and relaxing. Our girls enjoyed all the farm animals as well as fishing in the pond. It was so nice being so close to town yet so quiet and serene when at the cottage. We felt as though we were at home with all the little extras that were provided. The fresh eggs were delicious by the way! Thank you again and I pray we'll be able to return soon!

We found the "Cottage" was a wonderful place to meet up with family and enjoy the area. The kitchen was one of the best stocked kitchens that I have come across in a VRBO place. Owners were very accomadating also.

REPEAT PERFORMANCE!!

  • 5 out of 5
Last year my husband and i stayed at this delightful home and this spring a friend and i stayed there again to celebrate our birthdays!... Truly, i felt like i was coming home when i walked in...there is beauty all around... if not the mountains, then the green pastures with beautiful horses grazing all day. This house is only 15 minutes from the Biltmore Estate and maybe 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. It is minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and every other convenience we needed. This will be a 'go to' place for us whenever we find ourselves anywhere near Asheville. The home is perfect and the owners are wonderful... Book this place for a vacation... you will be happy you did!!

EASTER WEEKEND AT THE COTTAGE

  • 5 out of 5
Our family (4 adults, 2 children) spent Easter weekend at the Cottage and had a wonderful time. The girls loved the horses, bunnies, chickens and especially the resident cat. Although we had a rainy start, the fireplace came to our rescue and provided a cozy, warm atmosphere at night. Once the weather cleared, we spent time in the gazebo and skipping rocks on the pond. The beds are great and the kitchen well supplied with everything we needed. We enjoyed the hot tub too! This is a great place to stay and we would come back again. Thank you to Terri & Clay for allowing us to enjoy their family's cottage.
