I honestly hesitate to write a review, because I want this to be my own little secret:) I actually grew up spending all my summers on my grandparents farm further up Brushcreek & we lived with them in my middle school years when Papaw became ill. I have a long family history in Fairview so full disclosure, I am partial..for very good reason. You just don't get childhoods like that anymore..picking buckets of blackberries that Meemaw turned into cobblers & jams, roaming hillsides only comparable to The Sound of Music and fetching dinner from the lake. I've always dreamed of the day I'd get to bring my kids back to see the slice of heaven called my childhood..but didn't know how, being that my grandparents have passed away and their beautiful property long sold. When I went on VRBO, it was nothing short of a hair raising God thing that I came across this sweet stone cottage (my grandparents farm house that he built with his own hands was stone as well) ON Brushcreek..I thought it was too good to be true! Even my mom who was born and raised there, didn't know about this precious stone cottage up the sweetest dirt road at the end of the circle. I was a little disappointed that we didn't make it there before dark being that my husband isn't quite acquainted with country living:)..but as we entered the gate into this precious property, the night scene had a heavenly glow all it's own. My city boy husband instantly understood all my sentiment. The fireflies lit up the night & the goats and horses welcomed us with their sweet songs..and there was something magical about mysteriously hearing the creek babble before getting to see it in the morning. The next morning I couldn't hold the kids back from bursting outside in their pajamas, so I followed suit in mine with coffee in hand:) We were soon greeted by these special owners..Barbara was up in the barn tending to a new horse & so graciously allowed us to watch and pet. In our time there, I was able to easily explore all the surrounding land that me & my siblings, my mom, grandparents and great grandparents roamed as children..with my own kids, husband & mom..but looked forward to returning to this precious real working farm each day! I am forever grateful for our divine meeting with this special couple & that they so generously share their hearts and home with others..allowing me my up most precious memories with my kids to date. Thank you Barbara and Tom, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
When looking for vacation rentals for a weekend getaway it is always very important that the location be pet friendly so we can travel with our furry companions. I loved the location of this cabin and the town of Fairview was beautiful as well. I am an animal lover so not only was it great being able to take the dogs but the cabin sits on 400 acres of farm land and there are wild turkeys, goats, chickens, and horses on the property. To me this was one of the coolest things about the stay. You can hear the creek behind the cabin running when you have the windows open and it is a very relaxing experience. The dogs loved the creek and loved drinking out of it was well, they were in heaven. Overall the cabin is in a great location, its very quaint and I would definitely stay here again. The dogs had a blast and we also had a nice relaxing get away. We were in town for a wedding and thought it would be nice to stay up in the mountains. This was THE perfect location, I couldn't have picked a better rental in the Asheville area. Did I mention there is a hot tub on the back deck? Amazing!
My daughter and I were very impressed with this property. The house is very quaint with everything you need to enjoy your stay at a great nightly rate. My daughter really enjoyed the animals. There were 3 horses, approx. 6 goats, approx. 20 chickens, and a very protective rooster. :)
The owner, Barbara, is very pleasant to talk with and gave us the history of the property. There are lots of trails to hike on the property and the view from the top of her property at sunset is beautiful.
This property is in a great location. You are approx. 25 min. from the entrance to the Biltmore house. But once on the property you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.
We really had a great time and I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away from it all.
My best friend and I chose this cottage as our getaway to celebrate New Year's Eve with her husband and my fiancé. WE LOVED IT. The cottage itself was cozy but with enough space for a group of 4 to maintain a measure of privacy. The cottage also feels warm and welcoming with its dark wooden panelling and cute, rustic decor. The kitchen was well-equipped to cook a range of simple meals, and we loved having a few beers on the patio or in the hot tub. The farm is great for wandering! The animals (goats, chickens, and horses) were a constant entertainment, and a trailhead connecting to Bearwallow Mountain is easily accessible. Downtown Asheville is a 30-minute drive away, a grocery store about 10 minutes away, and the owners have left plenty of suggestions for things to do in the area. We plan on making a return trip sometime soon!
Despite historically bad weather, we enjoyed a cozy stay in this super rustic cottage. Make sure to bring your own firewood if you want to enjoy the woodburning stove
We had a very nice time in Asheville and really enjoyed the quiet retreat of the cabin as a home base. It's close proximity to Asheville, Biltmore, the Blue Ridge Parkway and the other sights around the area was nice. It had everything we needed to be comfortable; it's really well kept, clean and just a beautiful location in the "back-woods" of NC.
Thanks for sharing it with us!
The Cabin on Brush Creek is located in a SNHA - Significant Natural Heritage Area....the only one of its designation in Western North Carolina. The 400 acres are criss crossed with hiking trails. This is truly a naturalists/hikers paradise! But still close in to urban attractions such as restaurants, pubs, theatres, and music venues. Only a short 20 minutes from the front gate entrance to Biltmore House.
