Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Fairview - Moores Pond Farm Guest House

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Queen sofa bed1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy views of Moores Pond and Little Pisgah Mountain from this 2 bedroom/one bath Guest House. Recently remodeled, your vacation retreat has a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, wood floor in the living area, central air/heat, and a wood-burning fireplace. Amenities include WiFi, satellite and cable TV, AM/FM, CD, DVD, VCR, Gas outdoor grill, outdoor furniture. A two acre pond is ready for canoeing, sitting and enjoying watching herons and a variety of birds, or feeding the resident Mallards. There are miles of hiking trails in the woods on this 50-acre property, from moderate to strenuous. An additional highlight is that this is a small working farm, with various crops growing in season and a small French Alpine dairy goat herd. Two of our five does had 5 kids in late March (19th and 20th), the other 3 does will kid in early May and early June.

Located in Fairview, only 11 miles southeast of Downtown Asheville (6 miles from city limits) and 6 miles from I-40 and the Blue Ridge Parkway, this private residence is in the country, yet very convenient to the many attractions of the area, including the Biltmore Estate, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock State Park, and (of course) the mountains with their spectacular views, waterfalls, and tourist attractions. Every season has its gifts, from summer festivals and craft fairs to fall color, winter holidays at the Biltmore House, and spring blossoms. There is an Amish Market (bakery, fresh eggs, and other goodies) next door...across the pasture.

Why Chuck C Campbell and Sarah York chose Asheville Area

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

What makes this house unique

The views from the 50+ acre property and lake are wonderful. The birds, horses, goats and other animals are a joy to behold.

beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Asheville is our favorite city for all the nice outdoor activities Smokey's have in store . Moores pond is a beautiful countryside like farm and not too far from Asheville. House was nice, cozy, well maintained with all the amenities and the owners ( Sarah and Chuck) were super nice. We had a marvelous time and are looking forward to going back again

Adequate, with some good and some bad

  • 3 of 5

The area has a lot of fun things to do nearby. The cabin is nice and includes Netflix.

Unfortunately, we had planned on fishing in the pond, but the owners won't allow it. We had also planned on enjoying walking around with our dogs, but were told that we couldn't take them in a number of areas due to livestock. The main hiking trail is poorly marked.

We enjoyed our vacation, but just be aware of these facts and decide for yourselves.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the fishing, but it is noted on the website. The reason is lost tackle ending up in the feet of the goats. Also it is noted that dogs can not not be with the goats because dogs can kill goats, plus the guard llama will try to kill the dogs. This is truly a small but working farm. We apologize for any disappointment!!!

Exactly as pictured and just as nice!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at 43 Moores Pond with family and the three of us had a marvelous relaxing 4nights/5 day stay. Due to the drought, the pond had shrunk from the shoreline about 2 feet, but we met the goats and llamas, although not too close! The kitchen pantries are well stocked with all types of spices and cooking oils, enough pots and pans to fulfill our cooking needs, but note that the refrigerator is not stocked but empty. This prevents perishables from going bad and spoiling and smelling up the fridge. Groceries are available 10 minutes away at Food Lion. Hot water was adequate for 3 adults to take showers one after the other without it getting cold. Tap water comes from a well so it has that "well" odor. Bring bottled water if you don't like well water. Washer and dryer were downstairs with very eco-friendly organic soap - soap nuts inside a muslin bag that you just toss inside the washing machine. Sheets were soft, pillows snuggable, blankets warm, and house cozy. Asheville and Black Mountain provided several days of exploring, and of course we had to visit Biltmore which was less than a 15 minute drive from the house (less than 10 minutes to Asheville and Black Mountain). As suggested by the owners, we also walked to the quaint Amish store enjoying the gardens, small windmill, and fell in love with the baby llama. All in all, a wonderful vacation and would not hesitate to book again!

A delightful place with everything one needs and nicer than I even expected!

  • 4 of 5

When one rents a cottage in an area where there are no hotels and it is a farm - one may not know what to expect but the cottage was lovely and much nicer than I had even expected! Upgraded and well done - the most difficult part is getting there - Chuck gave good directions but I am not use to country - and I do mean country - small back roads and hard to see signs - and I was trying to find it in the night so that made it difficult! But we did find it and it was very nice - comfortable beds and welcoming ambiance!

I would definitely go back- I had to leave in a hurry as Hurricane Mathew was bearing down on my home in Florida and I needed to get home quickly!

Thank you Sarah and Chuck!

Relaxing and fun, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

First of all the accommodations are great. Everything was clean and well kept without feeling like a resort. Location is not far from Asheville yet it is secluded quiet and peaceful. Easy access to a number of state parks and hiking trails. You can be on the Blue Ridge Parkway in 5 minutes. Our hosts were nice and provided a vast amount of info to make our stay pleasant. Dog friendly aspect was important to us. We started discussing plans to return before we departed.
