Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Fairview - Moores Pond Farm Gatehouse (7)

House, 2 Bedrooms, Study, 1 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, wood floor in the living area, air/heat. Amenities include WiFi, cable HD tv, am/fm, DVD, 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. Six does have kids in the spring, late march through may.

There is a fenced-in yard for dogs.

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.

NO SMOKING anywhere on the property, in other words NON-SMOKERS ONLY.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Gate house! We booked it for our honeymoon. We just wanted to take a long weekend to get away from our busy life. It was off away from the hustle and bustle of the city. But close enough for a 20 minute drive into Asheville. The property is gorgeous and surround by mountains. The fall colors were so beautiful. It was great getting to bring our dogs for the long weekend. We visited the goats which I loved getting to pet them and we plan to come back sometime in April to see all the baby goats. Chuck and Sarah were great and super helpful. The Amish market was a so close you could walk to it! Just follow the private drive to the end and there well be signs for the market. Their sticky buns were amazing! We got to stock up on some butter too. Just a great getaway to relax an stay in. We did do the night tour of the Biltmore which was so neat. It was just 15 minutes away from the house. Love this place! You won't regret booking here!

The house is very well stocked and was ready to go when we got there. The property is very pretty and we enjoyed walking the trail around the lake. Very close to Biltmore, Blue Ridge Parkway and Downtown Asheville.

Thanks for wonderful stay Chuck and Sarah! Looking forward to coming back.

Convenient, quiet location

The Gate House at the goat farm was conveniently located and quiet. Close enough to Asheville and many outdoor trails and parks. Close to Blue Ridge Parkway as well.
