Enjoy views of Moores Pond and Little Pisgah Mountain from this 2 bedroom/one bath Guest House. Recently remodeled, your vacation retreat has a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, wood floor in the living area, central air/heat, and a wood-burning fireplace. Amenities include WiFi, satellite and cable TV, AM/FM, CD, DVD, VCR, Gas outdoor grill, outdoor furniture. 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. Two of our five does had 5 kids in late March (19th and 20th), the other 3 does will kid in early May and early June.
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 house in 2006
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.
The guest house and the property were lovely. The house was clean and modern and the kitchen was well stocked. The setting was perfect. We enjoyed the chickens and goats, and especially Chuck and Sarah's hospitality!
We had a lovely stay at Moore's Pond. Chuck and Sarah were wonderful hosts, and very patient with letting us participate around the farm. The goats and chickens were fun, and the nearby Amish market was a hit. The cottage was clean and well-equipped with everything we needed. It was a great "home base" for our first trip to Asheville. I would recommend Moore's Pond for any family with young kids.
A great place to stay to enjoy the mountains and Asheville. Chuck and Sarah could not have been more welcoming. Upon arrival they introduced themselves, brought us some fresh eggs from their chickens, and showed us around the farm. Our 5 year old son loved it!! The house/cabin is perfect with all the needed ameneties. Amish market had the best bread and butter ever. We will be back without a doubt in the spring or summer.
We spent 5 nights in the guest house and had a perfect vacation! The hosts were kind, accommodating and so sweet to our son (22 months) who loved seeing the goats, llama, chicken and tractor. The home is well stocked with everything one would need. The wifi and full satellite tv was a great addition. The home is perfectly tucked away just a short distance to Asheville, Black Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Amish market (Troyers) was a short walk away and was a huge hit for our family! We loved the cinnamon rolls and fresh baked cookies. We can't wait to come back and stay again!
A wonderful and comfortable escape where our days began with beautiful morning sunrises and the tinkling bells of happy goats. We loved the serenity of Moore's Farm and enjoyed meeting our friendly
hosts, Chuck and Sarah, who introduced us to the workings of their farm. It was fun to meet their goats and their llama, Velvet, the amazing "goat guard". After a day of hiking and sightseeing it was
great to come back to the guest house and relax and where we made most of our evening meals in the well equipped kitchen.
At some point each day we hiked the trails behind the guest house with our dog who loved the freedom of being off leash.
Ashville was easily accessed as was the beautiful scenic area with incredible vistas.
It was an idyllic vacation for us and we hated to leave. Quincy, our dog, gives it " 2 thumbs up"
Thanks Chuck and Sarah
We spent three nights at this wonderful house. We enjoyed having our dogs with us. The owners are very nice and helpful. It is close enough to all the surrounding sightseeing places. You would need a car of course. We highly recommend this rental.
