RASPBERRY HILL - A UNIQUE HISTORICAL HOMESTEAD

Black Mountain Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Relax and turn back time at Raspberry Hill, a unique and historical vacation rental property located just minutes to Black Mountain, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, and Asheville.

Nestled in the heart of Western North Carolina in the tranquil Broad River valley is Raspberry Hill. Named for the large wild raspberry patch located behind the house, guests are welcome to go “berry-picking” in season. Raspberry Hill is an authentically-restored, early 1900's homestead.

Surrounded by 30 acres of beautiful mountains and valleys, Raspberry Hill welcomes guests of all ages and walks of life to enjoy a tranquil stay. Play football or soccer in an enormous field, fish in the creek, or enjoy long walks in the woods by day. Tell ghost stories around an outdoor fire, enjoy a big family dinner, feel the warmth of a wood fire in the living room, or simply relax on one of 2 porches or large outdoor at night. There is plenty of room to pitch tents and camp outside.

Each bedroom in Raspberry Hill has its own bathroom, a separate entrance. There are 1 Full-sized bed, 3 Queen beds, and 1 King bed to sleep 12 comfortably. An air bed can be used in the living room if needed. The fully equipped country kitchen is ready for a big family meal or a simple cup of coffee. The dining room has an antique table and dishes for a pleasing display.

Antiques and restaurants are close by, with Black Mountain being only 9 miles away and Chimney Rock/Lake Lure about 11 miles. For the active lifestyle, there is so much to do in the area:

Chimney Rock: Hiking, shopping, restaurants

Lake Lure: Swimming, boating

Black Mountain: Antiques, restaurants, shopping, night life

Asheville: Biltmore Estate, shopping, sight-seeing, art museums, live performances, movie theatres, night life

Retired from medical sales and found much challenge and much peace in restoring this beautiful property.

Herb van Roekel purchased this farmhouse in 1995

I love restoring challenge of this old farm house and adding my own touch to make it even better than it was originally. Like shinning an old penny.

Spacious and warm farm house. Offering quite niches, for families to find there own spots while offering gathering room spaces for all. You can walk along the many walking paths, sit on the large deck, or choose the rocking chairs on the front porch...to the beautiful white wickers couch and chairs in the surrounding all the rooms upstairs sun porches. Our unique fire pit offers swings all around for all family members to enjoy. In the warm months, children enjoy the gently flowing stream which flows along 1500 feet along this large property. This property mimics the peace you might fine such as found in the popular TV series 'Walton's Mountain' and a place families can reunite.

We had a GREAT family Thanksgiving at Raspberry Hill. It was a very relaxing atmosphere "away from it all." There were brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, nieces, nephews, grandmothers, dogs, turkey, and even "over the river to Grandmother's House." The little stream that runs along the property is so pretty. We enjoyed building big fires in the firepit and roasting marshmallows at night. The whole experience was just what our family was looking for.
