Yes, it's a 1970-built, ranch-style house BUT with lots of windows, the sunlight always lighting and warming this southwesternly-exposed home (passive solar) in the winter. Such a comfortable, easy home to be in. Walls are opened up to show off the view, no small rooms, new furniture, new fixtures and kitchen appliances, tiled walk-in shower. A tear-drop shaped rock-stamped patio added near the full-house-length deck makes outside living at Cloud 9 in the mountains an energy experience you won't forget.

What can families do outside on Cloud 9 Farm?

HOT TUB with a view on the deck! Hike the trails to our highest peak: “Buzzard’s Roost”, feed the chickens and cows, enjoy a picnic at Peterson Pond, swim, fish or paddle boat, and watch for birds, wild turkeys and deer, pick in the garden or munch on blueberries in the summer. And, if you want, help with farm chores, too. It's like going back in time to a simpler way of life. No traffic noise, no street lights, no power lines, no neighbors. Quiet.

Inside stuff?

Wi-Fi, Large Screen TV with DISH network, puzzles and games (board and video), professional size air hockey table, enjoy the views in every room, one step in. Great light for reading your tablet. Plus a library full of books from gardening to wellness.

By staying on Cloud 9 Farm you are supporting the conservation stewardship of the land and animals. Tours of our 'best management practices' available. On-site farm products for sale in season: chicken, beef, honey from our pollinator hives on the farm, blueberries, raspberries and vegetables in season, natural skin care products, too. Hair Salon opportunity in proprietor’s home on the property.

Cloud 9 Relaxation Home ; Your 'peace' of heaven! What are you waiting for?

Need a cozier place? Or want to have some of the family spread out but close by? Heavenly Hideaway Cabin, for two, shares the same driveway.


Cloud 9 was part of the 2014 Cycle to Farm Tour. Also featured on the 2012 and 2013 Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project Tour, in the 2011 book, Farm Fresh, NC and was in Southern Living 2010 September Issue in the NC Carolina Living 'Best Farm Stays in North Carolina.'

About Janet Peterson

Janet here, your hostess, and conservation farmer owner/manager (with lots of help) of one little valley of Fairview, North Carolina. Our sing-along slogan is 'Beds, Berries, Trees, Beef and Honey Bees and don't forget the chickens' which says it all about what you can find on Cloud 9 Farm. These are my many interests and passions which I invite you to share with me as you step back in time for a visit to a simpler way of life on Cloud 9 Farm.

Janet Peterson purchased this house in 2004

Why Janet Peterson chose Arden

I DIDN'T buy this property, it is my family home to share with you. We refurbished the mountain top, retirement Cloud 9 Relaxation Home for families up to 6 and built Heavenly Hideaway, a cozy cabin, for couples, too. Both have hot tubs on an open deck under the stars. Just 8 miles from I-40, you can be at the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, and the waterfalls of Dupont State Forest in 15 minutes. Quiet and private.

Where does the owner live? Florida? Texas? California? Are you kidding me? I live on this beautiful property, too.

What makes this house unique

Asheville is just 15 minutes away for a soiree into town...a delectable meal or a great, day-excursion, especially to the Biltmore Estate, but vacation renters find that they never really have to leave the farm because there is enough to do right here; hiking, enjoying the valley pond area, picking blueberries in July, or just sitting on the huge deck (or in the hot-tub) over-looking the mountains and relaxing. The layout of Cloud 9 is very outside-friendly with sliding glass doors in every room to open with natural light and get that fresh mountain air. Views, views, views! Come see for yourself!

Guestbook comments from the owner

7 of us and 2 dogs from Greensboro, NC, Atlanta, GA, Raleigh, NC and South Africa!

Thank you for sharing your space for a wonderful weekend and family gathering to celebrate birthdays and enjoy being together! All the best.

Piece of Heaven in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We rate this vacation rental "10 Star". Every photo/description was "right on"; even better. Janet (owner) goes out of her way to make your stay happy, memorable & wishing never to leave. Our family reunion was our best; no one wanted to leave the farm. You enjoy the peace & quiet, the wonderful mountain views, the farm life. Just an amazing experience. Getting ready to book our next visit.

Owner's Response: We love that you found our simple way of life pleasing. It was a hoot to see 5 phone cameras and iPads aimed at your little 2 yr. old great grandson as he rode, wide-eyed, on the John Deere tractor with his grandfather. And that he learned to gather eggs from the outside chicken boxes, many times a day! Photos of farm happenings can be found onCloud 9 - Vacation Cabin & Rentals are on our facebook page.

Perfect Hideaway Close to Asheville!!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place! It was perfect for me and my husband. Far enough outside of the city to feel like you are in nature, but a very quick drive to Asheville and all of the attractions. The cabin was very easy to navigate for my husband who has MS. The ability to park right at the door, everything on one level and the seat and rail in the shower were all very beneficial The location is very quiet and peaceful. The fireplace and the hot tub were added bonuses and my husband loved the farm-fresh eggs!

We enjoyed Asheville- downtown, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Biltmore. Highly recommend Valet parking at the estate especially for handicapped people. For $18 they allow you to drive right up the estate and then park you car for you! So easy! While we could only navigate the first 2 floors in the wheel chair, a video provided a glimpse into all of the other areas.

The cabin is a beautiful retreat and Janet's hospitality is impeccable. We recommend it to anyone visiting Asheville!

Owner's Response: You actually stayed in our other vacation cabin, Heavenly Hideaway, but both rentals are easy to navigate for anyone with disabilities. Great comment about going to Dupont Falls. You really got to see so much close to Asheville!

Another great week for us. This must be our 6th or 7th time at Cloud 9 I think. But it is the first time in Spring-all the rest have been winter. Lovely and warm. Lots of good hiking and fun to see the baby cows! The eggs from the farm's chickens are tasty too! And amazing views all around.

Cradled in Mountains just 15 minutes from Asheville

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I wanted to have a reunion and celebrate my big birthday and we found Cloud 9 to be the perfect place! We rarely left the premises during our stay, instead preferring to cook at home in the well-appointed kitchen and relax in the house. We love hiking and there were ample trails to satisfy our getting fresh air and exercise. The views from everywhere on the farm are breath taking.

Upon our arrival, Janet was an extremely gracious host and made us feel welcome and at home. (She even gave me a hair cut which I desperately needed!) She helped me further my pollinator education and I am in awe of all she knows about bees and the environment.

The free range eggs were a special treat!

We brought 2 dogs and neither wanted to leave when it was time to check out.

Janet even helped to arrange for a surprise guest chef to come in one night to prepare our meal. Chef Santiago was fantastic and it was a birthday feast I'll never forget.

Getting into Asheville for craft beer tastings and a little shopping is a breeze as it is only 15 minutes away.

We can't wait to get back to Cloud 9.

Owner's Response: I like your idea of planning your own party. You just have to make it happen, invite family and they will come! Yes, Mountain Top Beauty Shop is close by!

My husband and I rented Heavenly Hideaway for a week with our 2 German short haired pointers. We absolutely love this charming cabin with lots of privacy. We have also rented Cloud 9, which I call the big house, and loved it too. We decided the second time around we didn't need quite as much space. We love the close proximity to Asheville for shopping, good eats, and good bars, but most people would probably be content staying on the property all the time. There is a lovely hiking trail right on the property about 3 miles round trip. We also really enjoy walking around the farm and feeding the cows and chickens. One of the best parts is being able to bring our dogs. We bring them inside when we are at the cabin, but we leave them in the outside fenced and covered kennel with dog house when we leave. The property owner is on site, and is very friendly and accommodating. We come to Asheville quite a lot for vacation and will not stay anywhere else since we have found this amazing place!

Owner's Response: You certainly hiked your rear ends off as every time I saw you, you were outside! Good for you, because it's fun to explore all the beauty of every part of the farm. I like how you have bells on your dogs' collars. They were polite dogs who really liked all the exercise. I bet they slept good at night and let you sleep in!

35th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We found Cloud Nine Farms last year through VRBO and just loved Heavenly Hideaway. We came back this past summer and then again for our 35th Anniversary. It was wonderful and so relaxing. We were also able to bring our dogs who enjoyed visiting the cows. Our dogs enjoyed the walks and exploring just as much as we did. It's quiet but also close enough to run into Asheville or go to the Biltmore . Thank you Janet for sharing your piece of heaven with us :)
