Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Farmhouse on the Cane is a special place for both families and couples to visit.

Amazing property central to many top activities including; The Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Mitchell, Linville Falls and the City of Asheville

Sleeps up to 6 comfortably.

Beautiful cook's kitchen stocked with all you need to make your stay special.

Over 1/2 mile waterfront on property and fun hiking trails right on our property.

80-year old restored farmhouse, nestled in the mountains on the outskirts of the town of Burnsville, North Carolina.

This artistic home is situated on 18 acres and over a mile of River frontage on the famous Cane River that is stocked with trout.

Experience the 'SPA' feel throughout this home with river rock showers, full chef's kitchen and warm colors and lighting throughout. Area is rich in history and local culture. Make sure you make some time to visit local museums and walk along the town square in downtown Burnsville.

An incredible farmer’s market is held on Saturday spring-to-fall and is rich with local produce and organic products.

Pass through the town, you will continue to drive along country roads and pass picturesque cows and old barns. We guarantee a smile will cross your face and your shoulders will begin to relax.

The worries of life somehow will be forgotten. Often parked along the sides of the road are trucks where local fly fisherman and their sons are fishing for trout. Make sure you wave and say hello.

Some mornings as you drive, you will see a herd of deer cross the misty road as they come to the Cane River to drink or look for berries. Often, you will cross paths with roosters and chickens as they search for food. Watch too for small bears along the river, but please just observe!

As you turn onto the driveway, cross over the Cane River and enter the property, make a mental note of the local swimming hole on the left. It is a favorite watering hole in the summer and locals call it the “rope hole”. Good for cooling off in the summer.

Pass the entry gate, and you will see an old cattle barn. In summer months, grapes grow on the vines up and along the top of the roof of the barn. When they ripen, make sure you pick a few.

After you settle in, take some time to sit on the rocking chair porch with a glass of wine or sweet tea. The rockers are hand-made by locals. You can listen to the water as it flows over the natural rocks and giant boulders and the water passes along the shores of the pristine Cane River.

Mornings are great for walking along the path of the river located just outside your back door. Around the corner, from the house in the summer months, we grow a kitchen garden with fresh strawberries, corn, tomatoes and herbs.

Wading in the river is a must for the summer afternoons. We suggest wearing old tennis shoes or such for traction. Unlike swimming pools, cut-offs and old t-shirts are preferred!

Dinner out with “people watching” is fun in downtown Burnsville. But most like to cook in our state of the art “country” kitchen using local produce and fish. The kitchen is a favorite of most and is equipped with a double oven and nice cookware. There are plenty of plates and utensils for families. The chilly water from the tap is from a hand-dug water-well, so please use what you need conservatively.

There will be plenty of room to serve your meals from our antique 12-foot long table from an old-local country-store. Everyone will enjoy dinner as they pull up a bench round the dinner table. Entertainment optional….talk and get to know each other again.

About Robert Cohen

After looking for over 2-years we found it with 'Farmhouse on the Cane!' We completed a renovation of a 1940's home which took over a year's time.

This is not your typical rental home and would love for you to enjoy it as well.

We also own the historic Nu Wray Inn Bed & Breakfast (Built in 1833) on the Town Square about 10-minutes away.

Read the previous comments as you have to experience to truly believe it.

Why Robert Cohen chose Asheville

We fell in love with the amazing 'Andy Griffith/ Old Town' feel of Burnsville (Only 10-mins away) with the friendliest people you'll ever meet. The natural beauty of the the Blue Ridge Mountains with local farms will shave years off your stress level.

We very convenient to Asheville, only 35-minutes away and 2.5 hours to Charlotte, so we're very easy to get to.

What makes this house unique

The River and beautiful countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks, Bob. We will definitely be back! We really did have an incredible time. We're still talking about it. Honestly, the week was perfect, and the best time to be away. Here in Raleigh, the temps reached up into the high nineties all week, and one day, it was apparently between 105-110 (with the humidity index), so being up in cool Burnsville was the smart place to be! :)

Oh-- and about our fly-fishing techniques-- We both fish all the time at the beach, but that's the first time I'd ever been fly-fishing, which I now think I much prefer to regular rod fishing. There's something very satisfying about using something so primitive (even the 'fly') -- and fishing in such clear waters-- to catch trout. I loved it.

Walk out on the stones into the water just a little ways; throw the line out as far as you can, preferably upstream and toward the big rocks out there (under which we suspect the trout hide); watch the line go downstream; and once the line is above water again, throw it again. Oh-- and, most importantly, your wrist/throwing technique has to be somewhat perfect-- as mine was-- but that's about it. :) Of course, I think it helps to have a river that's stocked, too.

We hope to be back up there again soon-- definitely next summer, but hopefully before then, too.

Thanks again for everything!

Perfect relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our two young sons up for a long weekend. The house is absolutely charming and offers every comfort! We loved cooking in the chef's dream kitchen! We walked the property's trails and enjoyed time on the riverbank, right out the front door! Evenings were spent on the porch, listening to the river. We will definitely be back and highly recommend the house!!

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were visiting the Asheville area and had a wonderful time staying at this classy and charming house. Unfortunately it rained most of the three days of our stay so we could not enjoy the many outdoor options--cooking out, fire pit, river, hiking, etc. Not being ones to limit our options, we totally enjoyed the front porch, rocking chairs, kitchen and various rooms of the house--as well as the scenery and the cute town of Burnsville. Our cookout with 7 people turned out to be a "cook-in" because of the rain, but was great because of the comfortable indoor space. The drive to Asheville is about 35 minutes which we made each day to enjoy all Asheville has to offer. We look forward to a return trip to the Cane, so we have the full experience during sunny weather!

Beautifully Appointed, Inside and Out!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from Spring Break/Easter weekend at this charming farmhouse on the river. The house is wonderfully renovated, with all the charm and character of an old house, but the conveniences of modern living, including the world's best fridge/freezer! Everything is top-notch, from the kitchen supplies to the beds and linens.

We enjoyed cooking meals and leafing through the many cook books for inspiration, sitting on the front porch rockers, hanging out down by the river on our own private beach, fishing, and hiking around the property with our dog. We explored the local area, including Burnsville and Asheville. We loved driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway on clear days and misty days, as well as visiting the lovely Crabtree Falls.

Everything is close by -- great grocery store, CVS and cute stores in downtown Burnsville, but you're tucked away just off a quiet, rural road and feel as if you have the place to yourself!

A Gem on the Cane River

  • 5 of 5

One word describes this home on the Cane, "extraordinary"! We stayed at the Farmhouse in March but the weather was actually pretty warm. The river was beautiful and you could see a few trout rising up on the warm days. We hiked the property and made trips into Burnsville, Spruce Pine and drove through the surrounding areas as this was our first time in the area. My son and I are learning to fly fish so we stopped in at Rivers Edge Outfitters in Spruce Pine and ended up fishing the North Toe river right behind the shop. We couldn't fish the Cane since that is prohibited in March (hatchery supported) but we are definitely booking a trip (or two, or three...) to spend some more time up there.

By the way, if you enjoy cooking, this house is a dream. Of all the rentals we have stayed in, this was the nicest and most well-appointed kitchen we have ever used. We were able to make some great meals, sit on the porch and just relax together as a family.

Perfect place to spend Valentine's Day

  • 5 of 5

We feel so fortunate to have stumbled across this little gem on the river. Everything was spot on and the kitchen was a dream to cook in. We are planning on building a house next year and we are surely going to take some ideas from this farmhouse! The location could not be more convenient and we enjoyed hiking around the property and exploring the area. It snowed while we were there and the scenery could not have been more picturesque. Thanks Bob and Lisa for being wonderful hosts! We'll be back in the summer for sure.

Our 25th wedding anniversary

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend the Farmhouse on the Cane. It was nicely furnished, with every thing you need especially in the KITCHEN. My wife and I cooked every meal except breakfast one morning, at the Farmhouse. Decorated very well, with just the right touch for a old mountain house. We were there Oct 18-25, our 25th wedding anniversary and had a very relaxing time. Thank you very much Lisa and Bob for sharing your private slice of paradise with us.
