About Brandy Honeycutt

Why Brandy Honeycutt chose Fairview

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

Absolutely amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost a week here while we explored the area for a future move. The house is very well stocked if you want to cook and close to all of the Asheville attractions if you want to go out. Chuck and Sarah go above and beyond to make this feel like your home away from home. The goats and Llama were also great along with their new pup Panda. Can't wait to visit again.

Disappointing! Falsely advertised

  • 1 of 5

If you’re going to advertise yourself as a goat farm and agritourism, you should let people know that you have NO ANIMALS part of the year! It was the reason we chose this house. My daughter cried when we got there and found out they had no animals.

Also, the house looks good in the photos but there’s a lot of shoddy workmanship. And the kitchen was not adequately stocked. Only 3 bowls. Pretty inconvenient for a family of 4. I ate cereal out of a pot all week. Would not stay here again or recommend it.

Owner's Response: Alyson, I'm truly sorry you were disappointed in your stay with us. When I checked in with you your response was "everything is fine. Hoping the weather clears off soon". I wish you would have communicated with me. It is true that we didn't have goats during your stay, BUT that is noted on the listing. If you had let me know that we had inadequate supplies I would have made every effort to rectify that issue immediately. At this point all I can do is take your feedback as an opportunity to make sure the kitchen inventory is replenished for future guests.

I was a little disappointed that the goats were no longer there. Didn't seem to be a "farm" anymore.

  • 3 of 5

Didn't seem to be a "farm" anymore. Checkout is at 10am and there seems to be no leeway. There was a guy sitting outside in his car at 9:30 am waiting for me to leave. Which is fine. It's their place, their rules. Great location, quiet, peaceful. If you're into hiking it's close to Chimney Rock / Lake Lure and many other places.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback Alfredo. We noted in our listing that we don't have goats on the farm at this time. However, we are looking forward to having new goat residents on the farm in the next few weeks. We do offer an option for a late check out, if guests give us a call and if we do not have a same day turn over. So glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise and the area.

Great house with beautiful Mountain View’s. House was very clean with nice furnishings. It had everything we needed. Brandy was a pleasure to work with and I appreciate her checking on us. I hope I get a chance to visit again soon.

Great location! Beautiful Views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the week of Christmas. We were disappointed that the area around seemed to shut down for Christmas and the goats were on their own holiday. Had issues with electrical outlets and refrigerator that the Owners were very quick to fix. Loved the homeyness of the house. Very comfortable. I think we would re-book just a different time of year.

Peaceful mini vacation

  • 4 of 5

What a peaceful, quiet place to get away from it all-and only a 15 minute drive into Asheville. While we did not have the best weather, we enjoyed our stay in the country. We loved meeting the goats and enjoyed the view of the pasture, pond, and mountains in the distance.
