NELL'S FARM HOUSE - SHELBY-BOILING SPRINGS COUNTRY LODGING

Shelby House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4-6

Your home away from home. Live in the city and tired of the traffic and busy life? Get away from it all and come on over to Nell's House. Are you working in the Shelby area? Give up that cramped motel room and come on over to Nell's House.

So close, yet so far away.

Here is a place to sit back and relax and watching the horses graze in surrounding meadows. The nights are peaceful with only the sound of nature and the light of the stars. The days are opportunities for hiking, exploring, fishing, or just relaxing. Nells House is intimate and informal.

GUEST INFORMATION: Is it time to get back in touch with your what life was like in a gentler and quieter time.

Nell's House is your place to be when visiting Shelby, North Carolina, for business, pleasure, American Legion World Series Baseball, Cleveland County Fair or when passing through Cleveland County.

Hafta Mosey Farm, on which Nell's House is sitting, is your place to be when visiting Shelby, North Carolina, for business, pleasure, or when passing through Cleveland County.

Nestled on a farm, Nell's House lets you escape the day-to-day rat race and provides you with a memorable country experience. You can relax on the porch, nap the afternoon away, or sit and watch the cows, horses and if you are lucky, you may even see deer, all from your chair on the back deck.

While suitable for any traveler, the home is perfect for families who need affordable, flexible and friendly lodging. The home consists of two nice-size bedrooms with 1 king bed and 1 double bed and a third bedroom with bunk beds for the children. There is a television with basic cable in the cozy den. The eat-in-kitchen contains all cookware, utensils and kitchenware, and all linens and towels are supplied. There is a large, centrally located bath with double vanity and tub with shower.

However, the greatest amenities are outside the home as it is situated on a dirt road just a short turn off the main road in a quiet community with a deck off the kitchen, presenting pictorial views of woods and pastures where horses quietly graze.

Pets are not allowed in the home, but please inquire about suitable arrangements on site.

If you are traveling with horses, email us about stabling located right across the road. Coggins and health certificate required.

Nell's house, located on Hafta' Mosey farm, is hosted by Harold and Debi Metcalfe, founders of Stolen Horse International, Idaho, pictured here with Debi, was stolen from us in 1997. She was recovered 51 weeks later. Her theft is the foundation for the nonprofit organization that assists thousands each year.

The Owner purchased this house in 1975

This home has been part of our family since it was built in 1975. Nell, lived in the house alone most of that time until she suffered a stroke in 2004. She was diagonised with Alzheimer;s Disease and and passed away in 2011. Nell's Farm House relfects her wonderful life with from the vintage dishes to the pictures. We kept as much of Nell in the house as we could but also mixed in our love of horses into the house. It is an interesting mix vistors enjoy.

Peace. Quiet. Crickets singing. No smog. No traffic. Dirt roads to walk on without cars whizzing by. Trees. Green fields.

Christmas Season

What a fantastic place with fantastic owners! We spent our Christmas Holiday at Nell's Farm House as we have family nearby. The Metcalfe's(Debi &Harold) were fantastic hosts as they had a Christmas Tree decorated and awaiting us. Wassail on the stove and a fresh evergreen wreath on the front door. This house is exactly as the pictures show. The house and surrounding farm so closely resembled the house I grew up in and spent 45 Christmas Seasons that my family decided to gather in Nell's living room for our gift giving. What a outstanding stay! It was like being back at my grandparents house again, with lots of memories.
Oh and if you like special sunrises, make the coffee, open the curtain on the sliding glass door and have a seat at the kitchen table. Peer out the door and wait, it'll be there.(You can imagine it now, can't you?) Beautiful, I saw it.
This is the best. House, hosts, location, surroundings, serenity, you name it.
(BTW: The Metcalfe's must be fantastic people. They, like me love those tiny layer chocolate cakes!)

The house is in excellent shape and was perfect for our use. It is very private and quiet so sleeping at night was not a problem. Overall I would recommend this property.

I just had an excellent stay at Nell's Farm House. The house is very comfortable and quiet. I cooked several meals while there and was able to find everything I needed in the kitchen. It is well-stocked, clean, and fully operational. I am originally from Shelby, and being at Nell's was like being back home for me. Look forward to going again when I make a trip down to work on the family tree! Thank you Debi for your kind hospitality!
