The mountains of Western North Carolina, near Asheville, are one of most beautiful and relaxing places in the world, if you exclude pulling weeds.

Memories Made!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for seven weeks while transitioning to the area and this was a wonderful place to be. The owners are fantastic and committed to your experience. The home was comfortable and inviting for our family of three. We loved sitting out at the firepit gazing at the mountain view and taking our evening stroll through the goat pasture. Our son was even able to "help" milk the goats a few times! The amish farm within walking distance was a fun treat on Saturday mornings - coffee and sticky buns - yum! We loved the entire experience and would highly recommend this vacation to anyone!

Owner's Response: An absolute delight to have these guests here for such a long time. Their son, a great goat milking machine, was such fun to be around. They will always be welcome to visit the farm and the goats!

Wonderful place to stay while visiting Asheville and the Great Smokeys

  • 5 out of 5
Just a short drive from Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway, yet quiet and peaceful. The house is clean, well furnished and stocked, and totally comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and the goats are so much fun to interact with. We want to go back!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
Just visited with my husband, our teenager, my mom and our dog. Nice quiet spot off the beaten path. A view of the goat pasture from the front porch! We walked through and took some close-ups with the goats... Very cute. Porch is great for morning coffee surrounded by pines. Very convenient to Asheville (about 10 minutes) and to Chimney Rock park (maybe 20 minutes due to curvy mountain roads). The Gate House is immaculately clean and has everything we needed. Owners Chuck and Sarah are friendly and helpful. This was a great trip for all three generations of our family and our pup. Thanks!

Great stay

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second stay at this cabin. This is a great place for young families to stay. One bedroom has a queen bed, and another has twin beds. There is a small third office room, which is perfect to set up a pack and play for a baby. The kitchen is very well equipped. The kids loved the goats, llama and pond. It is very convenient to downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is where we will stay again in the future when we visit Asheville.

Fantastic Animal-Centric Retreat for Animal Centric Family

  • 5 out of 5
First vacation in ten years, so lots to live up to, but our stay at Moores Pond Farm lived up to expectations for fun and relaxation. Our 9 year old Cocker Spaniel just had surgery for a cancerous tumor, so we designed our holiday with her in mind. She led us, like a sled dog, up and down Mt. Mitchell, to the Amish store, the Troyer's place nearby with donkeys, pigs, chickens, and through Gorges State Park. We wanted for nothing in our Gate House cottage, save more time to spend in Asheville itself; we lived in AVL about 8 years ago...though much has changed, most established businesses are thriving as are the arts, crafts, locavore and agri-tourism life-styles. If you love the outdoors, and all things natural or hand-crafted, visit AVL and Moores Pond Farm!

Great spot!

  • 5 out of 5
This place is great, close enough to plenty of hiking, a couple winerys, apple picking, and downtown Asheville. We enjoyed meeting the horses and goats, and the pigs and donkeys next door, too! Clean and comfortable cottage, really felt like we were away from it all! Hope to return soon!
