Beautiful, peaceful time...

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time. Our daughters, 8 & 10, especially loved Velvet, the Llama. The cottage was very comfortable. I recommend the short stroll to the Amish market. Thanks, Chuck and Sarah...

Loved our Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved staying in The Gate House. The house had an amazingly equipped kitchen with all of the comforts and amenities of home. Chuck and Sarah were very nice, informative and great teachers of goat life. Sarah was patient in teaching our entire family how to milk the goats, which the kids did quite frequently. The barn was just a short 5 minute walk. We spent a lot of time there sitting on the dock with all of the goats. They would continuously nudge us until we pet them or just lay at our feet like our dog. The kids loved it!!! Velvet the llama was a huge hit too. We also enjoyed walking to the Amish market for their baked goodies. The location was very convenient. We were surprised at how quick the drive into Asheville was yet we felt far in the country. It was also a quick drive to many great hikes. We hope to visit Moores Pond again soon.

Beautiful and Relaxing Area

  • 5 of 5

I wanted a little R&R and invited my family to join me for the first 2 days. My 6-year-old niece loved this house. She picked it out because of the farm. She enjoyed feeding Pee Wee and seeing the other goats. The farm fresh eggs that Sarah welcomed us with were absolutely delicious. We were close to other local farms which we toured as well. The home is in a fantastic location and to my surprise, it was not that far from downtown Asheville. I usually stay in downtown Asheville, however, I was less than 15 minutes away. I was also close to Biltmore as well. We will definately stay here again. My dog loved it too.

Private/secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very secluded and quiet getaway but 20 minutes from Ashville and Biltmore. Other reviewers commented on the property being close to a shooting range and you could hear shots during the daytime while outside, didn't notice it so much while inside the house. The house, furnishings were nice and comfortable--beds were really comfortable. Enjoyed meeting Sarah and Chuck and all of the goats (especially Peewee) and the Llama. We were greeted with a basket of fresh farm eggs, but we didn't cook breakfast while there--very nice though! We spent one day driving to Cherokee and driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway--best part of our weekend! Will definitely stay here again when we plan another trip to Asheville.

Nice place to stay near Asheville, NC!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Moore's Pond Farm! We were there for the USA Cycling National Cyclocross Championship held at the Biltmore Estate. The Farm cottage was in a good location, easy to get to the race. We loved the pretty lights showing us the way when we arrived late at night. We didn't have much time for exploring, but did visit the nice little Amish grocery store and had a quick walkabout to see the goats, chickens and llamas. The cottage had everything we needed and we were even able to catch a little of the GB Packer game! Go Pack! Thanks for a great weekend in a beautiful setting :)

Very peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

We spend the Christmas holidays at a quiet and peaceful home on a small mountain side (we're flat landers). It was about fifteen minutes away from the Biltmore Village and the Biltmore estate. Another two miles you are in the center of Asheville and all the excitement that happens in that interesting city.

This home was spacious enough for extended family to stay. We celebrated Christmas Eve and Christmas day together with family from Tennessee and Asheville. We had the opportunity to bring our dog and her favorite spot was sitting at the front door looking out at the field and mountains. We spent most of our time in Asheville, but did see one morning the goats grazing in the field across from the house. Since it was very rainy, we did not get the opportunity to explore the rest of the property at this time.

The owners had stocked the shelves with dishes/pots/pans/towels/and many more amenities that you would find in your own kitchen. We would recommend this place for those who have small families, dogs, and love to live in the outskirts of a busy city. Its a great place to regroup and take in the beautiful scenery.
