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.

She was recovered 51 weeks later. Her theft is the foundation for the nonprofit organization that assists thousands each year.
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.
