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.

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.

We had a wonderful relaxing time at this property. It was the second time for us to stay at this location. Both times the owners were very friendly and provided our family with charming homes to enjoy our family vacation.

Lovely accommodation, lovely area and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent five days at the Gate House at Moore's Pond Farm with our dog. The cottage is clean, with all the comforts of home, great Internet, A/C, loads of hot water, great dishwasher, washer and dryer, nice furniture etc. Wonderful, colorful, fresh eggs on our arrival!

The farm is lovely, the walk to the Amish Market is short and beautiful, the ducks, goats, cat and llama charming, and the owners, Chuck and Sarah, very friendly, helpful and charming also!

Very easy drive into Asheville or over to Lake Lure. Will definitely stay again.

wonderful house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay (of 9 nights) at Moores Pond, with our two little kids. Sarah and Chuck were very welcoming! The layout of the house is great, the beds are comfy, and the kitchen is a good size and well stocked. We enjoyed exploring the area, and our older son enjoyed feeding the chickens our extra bread each night. Thank you!

We loved the goats!

  • 5 of 5

Well kept property and Chuck and Sarah were very generous with their time and patient as we fumble milked their 2 does. Being next door to an Almish Market was a real bonus.
