Guestbook comments from the owner
Fodderstock Farm is a true gem! There is so much warmth and hospitality coming to this beautiful place. Our family had a marvelous time relaxing throughout the week, playing in the back pasture, and seeing the local sites. The location affords all the nature wonderlust you could ask for in Appalachia. We hope to return for another great stay!

I am an empty nester who enjoys the Brevard area with my husband who teaches at the local college. My favorites are waterfall exploring, hiking, horseback riding, camping, art, and interior design. This area provides plenty of nature, people and resources to help you explore. It doesn't get any better than this! For more photos and blogs about the farm see...

Renee Baker purchased this farmhouse in 2012

We love the pastoral setting, but really fell in love with the unique barn-wood interior of this home. Interior design is one of my passions, so furnishing the home was super fun. They don't build them like this anymore. Living on the farm, we love the area and are happy to share it with our guests.

A unique farm setting that is centrally located in the heart of hiking, kayaking, mountain biking and cycling country, we are happy to provide information to you about the area and activities available. There are many resources for hiking, climbing, fishing, as well as shopping and dining,

HIDDEN GEM!

Great location, friendly animals, gracious host, beautiful views, peaceful evenings, and fresh eggs each morning...what other rental can offer all this?! The only thing wrong with our stay was that it was too brief!

A SIMPLY LOVELY FARM EXPERIENCE FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left -- we could not have asked for a better farm experience with our children. Our children (and the adults) enjoyed gathering eggs from the hen house in the morning, grooming the donkeys throughout the day and chasing fireflies together in the pasture every night. The farm is close enough to enjoy all that Brevard and the surrounding area has to offer -- and still enjoy mornings and coming home to all that the farm has to offer in the afternoons and evenings.

Renee has created a home away from home for anyone interested in living the "farm life" for a weekend or for an extended family vacation. The house has three bedrooms, each with a full bath. Each room is comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the porch for morning coffee and the fire pit out back for making s'mores after dinner.

We highly recommend Fodderstack Farm. Many thanks to Renee for a lovely stay.

AN AMAZING WEEK SPENT IN AN AMAZING PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I booked a week of cycling in Brevard with a larger group of cyclists but we didn't want to spend 7 nights in a hotel. That's when I came across the listing for Fodderstock Barn on HomeAway. I immediately fell in love with the cabin just through the picture on HomeAway -- seeing the location in person was even better! Renee was quick and professional when responding to my many emails and inquiries - she even went so far as to recommend local restaurants, hiking trails, local ice cream spots, etc. I was a bit hesitant at first to book a location site unseen but I can't tell you how much the 4 of us loved every moment of our time at Fodderstock. The scenery is amazing. The house has every amenity you can imagine. The donkeys, sheep and chickens were adorable and friendly. The barn is very well-situated to Brevard so you can easily drive in for shopping and restaurants - but far enough away that you really feel like you can unwind and relax. We had friends over to the Barn (that were staying at a hotel in Brevard) and they all commented how they wished they were staying there with us! I would recommend a stay at Fodderstock Barn to everyone. Renee and her husband were incredible hosts (they even ensured that fresh eggs were in our fridge for the day of our arrival!) and extremely pleasant and easy to communicate with via email in advance of our trip. I am already looking forward to my return to Fodderstock next May!

SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
So, picture a beautifully restored, solid-as-a-rock, clean and lightly rustic two-story barn facing Fodderstack Mountain with two beautiful sweeping pastures in front of you, a chicken coop and yard adjacent to the barn, a nice sitting area near the pasture with a fire pit, a winding driveway in from the road, a grass yard with flower bed behind you and a sitting porch just off the back door. Now, add a bunch of sheep (including two babies) in the pasture along with two delightful, sweet and somewhat quirky donkeys keeping the coyotes away from the sheep. And add about a dozen chickens quietly going about their business of supplying you with 8-10 fresh eggs every day. Include the pleasant and caring owners who stop by to care for everything. And, finally, include wild turkeys, deer and a constellation of birds. And you are getting close to describing 'our' place for a week. Now that you are 'here', venture into nearby DuPont State Forest (15 mins), Pisgah National Forest (15 mins), Hendersonville, Brevard, Asheville, Horesehoe (and its fine Grill/Cafe) and other great places and you are starting to get the picture. Except you won't want to leave 'your' farm - it is just that nice, peaceful and quiet all day and all night. Choose to get involved - with your children or by yourself - in caring for 'your' animals and you will find a sweetness in all of them. As in the entire barn and property. Indulge if this appeals to you. It definitely did to us. And by the way, if you do visit 'our' farm, please take care of 'our' animals. We left loving all of them.

PERFECT HOME BASE FOR A FAMILY HIKING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful long weekend at Fodderstack Barn. Renee has created a warm, welcoming environment for all ages. Everything is very well appointed - simple and very nice...just the way we like things. The house was very clean and well organized. We like to cook and the kitchen had everything we needed.
We loved interacting with the animals - brushing and feeding the donkeys, watching the nightly parade of chickens into the coop, and enjoying their fresh eggs in the morning. It was fun to watch the sheep in the field...we were anxiously awaiting the birth of a new lamb but the next renters will get the joy of that experience.
This house is in the perfect location to use as a home base for hiking in both Pisgah and Dupont State Forest. Renee was extremely helpful in providing suggested hikes and she has a lot of information available at the house for planning your days. Located very close to Brevard and Hendersonville too for exploring the towns.
We look forward to returning to Fodderstack Farm and highly recommend it to others!

IMPOSSIBLE TO BE DISAPPOINTED.

  • 5 of 5
Fodderstack Barn is the travelers delight. High end amenities and decor without losing its rustic charm. Views of the mountain, beautiful spacious rooms, not to mention the most comfortable beds, Renee has knocked the vacationer wish list out of the park. THE LOCATION IS PRICELESS. Minutes from the Waterfalls and incredibly well maintained trails we have found "A TRUE HIKERS PARADISE". Renee is highly personable and instantly we found ourselves very comfortable seeking her advise on dinning, hiking and our time at the Biltmore. Every day was a new adventure and we sat aside one out of the seven days to simply enjoy the "barn" and relax on the comfy couch. The uniqueness of barnyard friendly animals, the attention to detail of a wonderful owner and so much to see and do makes Fodderstack Farm a perfect vacation for all.
