AN ANTIQUE RETREAT AT O'KELLEY'S FARMHOUSE!

Candler Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 1 Bedroom + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

O'KELLEY'S FARMHOUSE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION TO GATHER AND ENJOY THE COMPANY OF FAMILY & WONDROUS BEAUTY OF THE SMOKY MOUNTAINS. WE ARE LOCATED JUST AT THE FOOT OF MOUNT PISGAH & THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY. A SHORT 20 MINUTE DRIVE TO DOWNTOWN ASHEVILLE.

A memory making vacation is awaiting you nestled in the heart of the upper hominy valley where you will find an 'antique retreat' at the O’Kelley farm house. Renovated in 2008, the farm house is over 100 years old. Situated on 16 acres,the home is adorned with memorabilia from the O’Kelley family along with interesting novelties and antique accents.

Our home is located just moments from the Blue Ridge Parkway and only 20 minutes from Downtown Asheville, where you can find just about anything to do that your heart desires. Or, you can simply enjoy the farm for its own unique charm. May we suggest passing your time by: rocking on the porch, sitting under the outdoor pavilion watching wildlife, building a bonfire and toasting marshmallows, listening to the nearby creeks, or just enjoying the magnificent view of Mount Pisgah. Walking trails are also located nearby.

To add to the unique charm of the home, we have updated the matresses, but kept the original iron beds & springs and many other pieces of the history that have made this home so special. We have tried to renovate in a way that adds modern conveniences with old time charm. The home, complete with a large kitchen and a spacious dining room that will seat up to 10 people, is a perfect place for an old fashioned family gathering.

This old farm house is so dear to our family. We hope that you and your family will come here and spend time making memories of your own. Call or email us today to plan your old fashioned family vacation.

NOTICE! We rent to families and responsible adults only. No house parties and No Pets! No DaExceptions!

About Julie Burnette

Barbara O'Kelley Burnette & Dan O'Kelley

Julie Burnette purchased this farmhouse in 1900

Why Julie Burnette chose Candler

This home belonged to our Grandparents Frank and Texie O'Kelley. It has been in our family for over 100 years. We wanted to be able to share it and let others enjoy a little bit of history.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are very convenient to Asheville & The Blue Ridge Parkway. Easy to access but still far enough out to get away from it all. 16 acres of pasture to roam around in.

Charming Farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5
My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the O'Kelley's Farmhouse. My children couldn't get enough of the goats - they constantly wanted to find grass and flowers to feed them! The swing was a big hit with my older daughter - she was always challenging us to swing her higher. I farmhouse reminded me of my grandmother's home - the smell, the kitchen sink, and all the delightful decor around the home. It brought back wonderful memories of childhood.
My family and I were able to enjoy roaming Asheville since we were just a short drive away, and we enjoyed a short hike through the woods from the house. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend the farmhouse to friends. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Nice porch but needs new mattresses

  • 3 of 5
The porch is awesome. Home sits close to the road but not much traffic. Temps were great in this mountain setting. Brook running close to property can be heard from porch. Goats like to pretend they are fighting which is quite humorous.

However, the bed frames need tightened and the mattresses need replaced. Especially the master bedroom.

Family of 5 wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is perfect for any family with young children. Our kids ran and played in the huge field, pet the goats, and admired the horses. We even got to pick our own corn to cook on the grill. Only 20 minutes from Ashville. Very charming and quaint. I would stay here again.

Wonderful Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our family all came from out of town to Candler to attend my youngest brother's wedding. The Farmhouse was the perfect setting to slow down and spend time with my Mom who lives far away (and our spouses) when we were not participating in wedding festivities. The location is great; you are away from the noise and traffic, but close enough to run to Asheville for lunch and supplies. We especially loved the goats and the peaceful sound of the nearby creek. We really enjoyed the decor, and noticed something new every time we walked into a room. Getting to stay in this mountain farmhouse made a great weekend even more memorable - beats a hotel any day!

Girl Scout Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This lovely farmhouse was the perfect spot for some "rather old" Girl Scouts to meet for a weekend reunion. The nostalgic charm, comfy front porch, fantastic views and great pavilion with fire pit provided all we needed to relive our scouting days complete with bonfire, s'mores and campfire singing!
The owners could not have been more helpful and we were happy to make our wonderful reunion memories nestled at the foot of beautiful Mt. Pisgah.
If you are looking for a place to make your visit both special and unforgetable - these "rather old" Girl Scouts highly recommend O'Kelley's Farmhouse!!
