About Ken & Kim Burton
Homestead Farm South is named after Ken's ancestral home in Connecticut, Homestead Farm Dairy. When Ken and Kim moved to the mountains of North Carolina, they decided they would do something unconventional for a couple that had lived in the suburbs; they bought farm land and built Homestead Farm South. Ken wanted bison, Kim wanted goats and sheep, so they have goats and sheep, as well as a horse, chickens, turkeys, a donkey, and guardian dogs.
Ken & Kim Burton purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Ken & Kim Burton chose Pisgah Forest
Ken and Kim spent many months looking at properties, and they fell in love with the Little River valley area. Ken found this property when a colleague at work told him friends of his had property for sale, and when his coworker took him to show him the property, it was exactly where he and Kim had said they wanted to live.
What makes this Apartment unique
Kim found the house plan and they made some changes to make it, including adding the apartment over the garage. Originally intended for visiting family and friends, or for a future Brevard College student willing to live there in exchange for helping out, they decided to try using it as a vacation rental at the encouragement of their contractor and with the assistance of a nearby B&B. It was a decision they have not regretted because they have had many wonderful people stay there through the years

Great stay at the farm
Wonderful views, access to the river, watching burros and dog play in the morning, great accommodations. We plan to be back.
We enjoyed having you stay with us! The weather has turned cooler, the donkeys feel frisky! They love Daisy, our Great Pyr. We're glad you enjoyed the farm and look forward to your return visit. Thanks for the kind review.
Home away from home
My wife and I stayed here five years ago and decided to come back for another stay. We will be back again! It brings back happy memories for my wife of her childhood home which was a garden spot with a small menagerie of farm animals. The view of the distant mountains is beautiful, and the area is quiet and peaceful. We loved just sitting on the deck and soaking it in. Kim and Ken keep it very clean, cozy, and functional, and you have all you need to for a relaxing and comfortable stay. We will be back.
Marshall, We're so glad that your stay brought back fond memories of your wife's childhood. The mountains and the views are very calming and peaceful. The animals on the farm and experiencing nature in the mountains restores our souls. We hope to see you again sooner than 5 years! Enjoy your summer. Thank you, Ken and Kim
One would need to give this stay a 5 star rating! The apartment was immaculate and plenty of room for my wife and myself! That Homestead was close to Brevard, but in between Brevard and Hendersonville, which made it convenient for both cities! Plenty of fine restaurants and great shopping places!
Ronnie, we're glad that you all enjoyed your stay on the farm and that you found we are conveniently located to Brevard and Hendersonville. We enjoyed having you stay with us and appreciate your kind review. Thank you, we hope you will stay with us again! Ken and Kim
Wonderful in every way!!!
We loved staying here! It was a perfect location. Convenient to everything we wanted to do. The owners, Kim and Ken, were super kind, friendly, responsive, and helpful. Our 9 year old daughter loved the farm animals. My husband had a great internet connection for his work. The apartment was perfect for the three of us. Very nicely maintained, decorated, and cleaned. The views out the windows and from the front deck were great. We will definitely stay here again!
Rachel, it was our pleasure to have your family stay with us! Sarah was absolutely precious and we loved her excitement about the animals and farm. We look forward to having you stay with us again. We appreciate your kind review. Enjoy your summer! Fondly, Ken and Kim
Friendly Farm Stay with Wonderful Views
Our little family of four including two young boys loved our stay at the Homestead Farm South. Kim and Ken were very welcoming going the extra mile with farm fresh eggs and s'mores by the campfire. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to visit with the farm animals including the new baby lamb and goats. ♡ The guest house was clean and charming, and very central to all of the local parks and attractions. We would definitely recommend this sweet little farm guesthouse for anyone wanting an authentic WNC experience.
Bridgette and Ward, We appreciate your kind review of our property. We had a great time visiting with your family and seeing the excitement when the boys caught fire flies, roasted Smore's and got to name "Wooly" the ram lamb. You are a wonderful family and we're glad we got to share in some of your vacation memories. We look forward to seeing you all in the fall! Thanks for choosing Homestead Farm South!
Beautiful and peaceful
A beautiful property. Very clean. A great place to get away. Very convenient to Brevard. I highly recommend this VRBO.
We're glad that you enjoyed your holiday weekend in Brevard visiting friends. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. We hope to host you again in the future. Happy Memorial Day! Thank you!
