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.

Chuck C Campbell and Sarah York purchased this cottage in 1986
The mountains of Western North Carolina, near Asheville, are one of most beautiful and relaxing places in the world, if you exclude pulling weeds.
The views from the 50+ acre property and lake are wonderful. The birds, horses, goats and other animals are a joy to behold.
The gate house at Moore's Pond was a lovely location for our family long weekend retreat.
The view out the window and from the porch was pleasant. The beds were super comfortable.
The kitchen was incredibly well-equipped.
The trails up the hill were a bonus and gave me a good place to stretch my legs in the morning.
The tinkling of goat bells and the presence of the llama created a most memorable experience.
The hosts, Chuck and Sarah, enjoyed showing us their goat operation and the goats were the most friendly I have ever met.
Asheville is a short drive away, but the rural atmosphere at Moore's pond feels much farther away.
Very clean and comfortable. The goats and llama on the property were very cool. Great property for exploring!
The house was perfect for us. The property includes some nice wooded hiking trails. It is just a short walk over to Troyer's Amish Market that has a nice selection of groceries and great sandwiches. Fun to watch the goats and their guard Llama "Velvet" out in the pasture. No cell coverage at the house for our carrier, but not a problem because there is wifi so we just set our phones to wifi calling.
Property was very nice. Remote enough to enjoy some peace and quiet but close enough to Asheville to enjoy the city. The goats were a huge hit! We would definitely stay here again.
We loved our visit to the farm!! This place is our ideal vacation rental: remote, quiet and has space to let our dogs run free, but also close to outdoor activities and Asheville. We spent 3 full days at this cottage and hiked the trails every day. We were welcomed with fresh eggs which were delicious, and found everything we needed for meals at home in the cottage (plus a highchair which was helpful since we have a baby). Visiting the goats and llama was fun, although I didn't manage to pet the llama despite my best efforts. The sandwiches at the Amish market were so tasty! We stocked up on all kinds of things there to get us by during our visit. We brought our bikes and rode on a paved trail near the Biltmore, and visited a couple of state parks and national forests in the area. The cottage is perfectly located for easy access to all of the places we wanted to explore. We will definitely be visiting again soon!
We stayed at number 7 and it was very pleasant. We were 2 adults and 4 kids - needless to say the kids loved the farm and especially my 8 years old son couldn't get enough of the goats, he literally spent hours with them. The weather was really very cold, we did a short hike near by and visited Asheville. Our total stay was 3 nights and the place was conveniently located and reasonably priced so it worked well for us.
The only things that would need improvement in my opinion -
The house advertised to sleep 6 - which would include 2 on the sleeper sofa - that mattress his terrible, even when we took it off the platform and set in on the floor all you can feel was springs in your back, its really uncomfortable and probably should be replaced with a better alternative or list the house as suitable for 4. Also the the bathroom was cold and it could use a large rug to warm up the place and be more inviting in cold weather. Otherwise, our stay was very pleasant. Thank you again to our hosts.
