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.

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.
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
We had a great time at the Gate House on Moore's Pond! The rental was stocked with everything we needed for our stay, the mountain views were only outdone by the warm owners Chuck and Sara. This location was perfect for quiet rest but still close enough to everything else that we desired to do, Asheville, Biltmore, and The Grove Park Inn. We will definitely choose this rental should we find ourselves in Asheville again!
We spent Thanksgiving in the Gatehouse. The fabulous, well appointed kitchen was perfect for cooking a major holiday meal. The house overall was clean, attractive and comfortably furnished. The view of the mountains was lovely - especially at sunrise. We loved meeting the goats.
We also recommend the nearby Amish market and local restaurant, The Local Joint.
We'll be back.
