Don’t think twice!

Wow! When I tell you this stay was everything we dreamed of and more, I’m not exaggerating. We drove up to this beautiful farm and couldn’t believe this was where we’d call home for our stay. We parked and immediately ran to the horses who very very quickly found a spot in our hearts. We fell in love and they were the first place we went in the morning and always had to say good night before bed.

The house is gorgeous, comfortable and special. Not your cookie cutter home, it is full of such charm and warmth. It is located about 20 minutes outside of Asheville in a very cute town. It allowed quiet and peacefulness, but also easy access to Asheville.

Frank was a wonderful host who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was magical. He was generous with his time and horses. We are beyond grateful.

My only regret is that we didn’t stay longer, in fact I looked to see if it was available for our road trip home before we even left. We will be back, I have no doubt about that. Five stars!
