We have 200 private acres on the southern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Fairview, NC. We call it Cloud 9 Farm, a hobby farm (family-owned since 1965), a place you will never want to leave. Fresh chicken eggs provided for every visit. The owners live nearby if you need anything. Property secured with an entrance gate. And...did we mention, quiet?
How far is Asheville?
Asheville is just 4 intersections and 15 minutes away! Same for the Biltmore Estate.

Yes, it's a retro1970-built, ranch-style house BUT with lots of updates, windows, the sunlight always lighting and warming this southwesternly-exposed home (passive solar) in the winter. Such a comfortable, easy home to be in. Walls are opened up to show off the view, no small rooms, new furniture, new fixtures and kitchen appliances, tiled walk-in shower. A tear-drop shaped rock-stamped patio added near the full-house-length deck, makes outside living at Cloud 9 in the mountains an energy experience you won't forget.
What can families do outside on Cloud 9 Farm?
HOT TUB with a view on the deck! Hike the trails to our highest peak: “Buzzard’s Roost”, feed the chickens and cows, enjoy a picnic at Peterson Pond, swim or paddle boat, and watch for birds, wild turkeys and deer, pick in the garden or munch on blueberries in the summer. And, if you want, help with farm chores, too. It's like going back in time to a simpler way of life. No traffic noise, no street lights, no power lines, no neighbors. Quiet.
Wi-Fi, Large Screen TV with DISH network, puzzles and games (board and video), professional size air hockey table, enjoy the views out every room, one step in. Great light for reading your tablet. Plus a library full of books from gardening to wellness. Air conditioned.
By staying on Cloud 9 Farm you are supporting the conservation stewardship of the land and animals. Tours of our 'best management practices' available. On-site farm products for sale in season: chicken, beef, honey from our pollinator hives on the farm, blueberries, raspberries and vegetables in season, natural skin care products, too. Hair Salon opportunity in proprietor’s home on the property.

Janet here, your hostess, and conservation farmer owner/manager (with lots of help) of one little valley of Fairview, North Carolina. Our sing-along slogan is 'Beds, Berries, Trees, Beef and Honey Bees and don't forget the chickens' which says it all about what you can find on Cloud 9 Farm. These are my many interests and passions which I invite you to share with me as you step back in time for a visit to a simpler way of life on Cloud 9 Farm.
Janet Peterson purchased this house in 2004
I DIDN'T buy this property, it is my family home to share with you. We refurbished the mountain top, retirement Cloud 9 Relaxation Home for families up to 6 and built Heavenly Hideaway, a cozy cabin, for couples, too. Both have hot tubs on an open deck under the stars. Just 8 miles from I-40, you can be at the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Chimney Rock, Lake Lure, and the waterfalls of Dupont State Forest in 15 minutes. Quiet and private.
Where does the owner live? Florida? Texas? California? Are you kidding me? I live on this beautiful property, too.
Asheville is just 15 minutes away for a soiree into town...a delectable meal or a great, day-excursion, especially to the Biltmore Estate, but vacation renters find that they never really have to leave the farm because there is enough to do right here; hiking, enjoying the valley pond area, picking blueberries in July, or just sitting on the huge deck (or in the hot-tub) over-looking the mountains and relaxing. The layout of Cloud 9 is very outside-friendly with sliding glass doors in every room to open with natural light and get that fresh mountain air. Views, views, views! Come see for yourself!
7 of us and 2 dogs from Greensboro, NC, Atlanta, GA, Raleigh, NC and South Africa!
Thank you for sharing your space for a wonderful weekend and family gathering to celebrate birthdays and enjoy being together! All the best.
We recently enjoyed a week at the Heavenly Hideaway and would highly recommend it to others seeking a quiet time for two in a lovely place. The rustic appearance was perfect for the wooded setting, but the cabin had excellent amenities (including a very good TV and Wi-Fi system). Everything was provided and we only needed
to bring our food. There is an Ingles store in the nearby town of Fairview that is a good source for groceries. Janet had provided menus from the local Asheville restaurants, as well as numerous maps of the area which were extremely helpful. The cabin's closeness to all the many activities and restaurants in the Asheville area was a real plus. We were only a few miles from the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway, where we enjoy hiking, and also to
Asheville. There were hiking trails on the property as well as a longer trail to Buzzards Roost that is lined with Laurel and rhododendrons. It is worth pointing out that this is a working farm with cattle, chickens (who really appreciate kitchen scraps) and a very large blueberry field. We were lucky to get to spend some time with the proprietors Janet and Jeff and to find out about the history of the farm and their plans for the future. Although we didn't stay in the Cloud 9 house, we would recommend it for families with children who have not had any exposure to farm life.
We definitely will be back again, hopefully when the blueberries are in season, and would highly recommend this
vacation to anyone looking for lots of local activities or just taking it easy.
This house was perfect for our family reunion. Multiple couples stayed in the home which provided multiple comfortable gathering spots - including multiple large rooms and a deck with a spectacular view. Janet is exceptionally pleasant and accommodating. The house was neat and clean. Asheville is easily accessible; but the property is very private and peaceful. A great place to get away from it all and spend some good time with family and friends!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay @ Heavenly Hideaway! Getting away for three days was “Heavenly!” We made the hike to Buzzards’ Roost AND up to the flag at Chimney Rock, visited Grove Park Inn and the Folk Art Center! Loved the fresh eggs! Thank-you, Janet for the warm welcome and hospitality! Our girls sure had a great idea in sending us here for some R&R.

We had an amazing time! This was our 2nd trip and we are already looking forward to our next! We decided to spend our honeymoon here and what a great idea! Asheville is very beautiful any time of year but Christmas is exceptionally beautiful. It is very busy time of year, everywhere in Asheville so be prepared! We visited the Biltmore, of course, and it was gorgeous. We went to several breweries and wineries, lots of fun! Be sure to check out Waynesville, it is a very cute and fun town. We saw the Gingerbread houses at the Grove Park and had dinner at the Blue Ridge, best buffet. Also, do not miss the Red Stagg!!! Even if you aren't celebrating a special occasion, you are on vacation and you deserve a amazing meal!!! Thank you so much for your hospitality Janet, we look forward to seeing you next time!! Happy New Year!!
Cloud 9 and Janet are both very special. My husband and I plus our 3 small dogs had the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Janet is the perfect host and her land is simply breathtaking. Long walks in the morning right outside your door, comfortable clean accommodations and convenient location to Asheville and groceries. The home is like stepping back in time, well maintained with lots of family history to make it interesting. Janet works her land, along with help from Jeff, and she has all kinds of home made goodies. They are kind and friendly, the type of people I would like to call friends. I can't say enough good things. We feel in love with the area and will be back.
We loved this cottage. So beautiful and peaceful. Janet is top notch! Thank you so much for having everything I forgot to pack. We enjoyed the hot tub so much. We used our big golf umbrella when it rained and got in anyway. If you added anything, I suggest an umbrella on a stand by the hot tub. Really loved it!
