Beulah Land Farm used to be a working farm where we raised edible flowers herbs, animals and boys but is now a lovely retreat for friends from all over the world. I am privileged to be the on site owner/manager and I enjoy meeting all of the interesting people who are sent my way, as do my other in house tenants.
My home is a hundred years old. I will not promise that the floors are perfectly level or that there is a single square corner in the whole place but I will promise that it is a house full of love and interesting people. It is a six bedroom house on about two acres of land. There is also a small two story guest house on my property. I rent out the two apartments on a permanent basis. I also rent out two suites on the second floor on a permanent basis as well as a converted root cellar on the first floor. This makes for an eclectic living experience that I find not only stimulating and interesting but is like a loving family environment. I maintain all of the common areas myself on a daily basis- It is keep neat and clean and the room that I rent out for VRBO has a private bathroom and is on the first floor.
'Grammies Room on Beulah Land Farm'
is a large two room suite which is right across the hall from a large shared bathroom. There is a shower available in the shared bathroom if you do not want to use the jacuzzi tub.
In Grammies Room, you will find:
*a comfy queen sized bed
*windows that look across the covered porch to a bold creek running twenty feet away
* a lovely attached sun porch which has recently been converted into a spa bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and french doors that open onto your intimate covered porch with privacy shade
* Grammies fenced in flower garden and pond
*flat screen tv with cable and DVR.
* shared bathroom across the hall has washer/dryer
*Bird feeders teeming with locals
Three steps down and you are in Grammies Garden with its picket fence, stone pond, flower garden, concrete table and lounge chair. Your own private wonderland. Through the arbor you will find yourself in the front yard, which gives you private access to the house.
My name is Lee Ann Johnson. I've lived here at Beulah Land Farm, just five minutes from Boone for twenty five years. YOU are invited to the mountains where you can experience the peace and rest of my hundred year old farm. Beulah Land is a unique vacation opportunity. Once a working farm, where we raised herbs, edible flowers, animals and boys, now it can be YOUR farm away from home...
I would like for my place to be a refuge from the rigors of your own mountain adventures! This house with its old hardwood floors and high ceilings is the ideal place to come home to after a day of hiking, sightseeing, visiting or skiing!
- Want to come and visit your student at App? -Need a quiet weekend getaway?
-Make it a romantic retreat..
- or a girls weekend- come on up and cook your meals together, stay up late, giggle and laugh as you reconnect without distractions!
-We are fifteen to thirty minutes from skiing
After almost two years on Homeaway It has been a fun and interesting ride!
My guests are welcome to use the kitchen for cooking meals. Of course, I expect everyone to clean up after themselves, leaving the kitchen in the same shape they found it. I put all the dishes away every morning.
Guests are also welcome to make use of the big living and dining room as well as the covered front porch which is tastefully furnished for dining with large rattan and glass table, a seating area with comfortable rockers and of course the porch swing.
There are a number of places to sit and just enjoy the farm around the yard and gardens. There is also a classic old tree swing hung from the maple tree as well as a climbing rope for kids of all ages.
You are also welcome to take a Creek Walk up Brushy Fork Creek which runs by the house just thirty feet from the front door! Fishermen will be happy to learn there are trout in my creek and we are a hop, skip and a jump from the Watauga River!
You are my guest! If I am here, I try to make myself available whenever I am needed but am sensitive for your need for privacy at the same time. I love people and enjoy interacting with guests when I am in town.
We are five minutes from Boone- right on the banks of bold and gurgling Brushy Fork Creek. Our fortunate location has all the advantages of rural life away from the hustle and bustle of our fair college town, but with instant access to all the high country has to offer:
*Endless shopping opportunities in Boone, Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis
*The Blue Ridge Parkway
*Valle Crucis Park
* Mast General Store
*Horne in the West
*Daniel Boone Park
*one hour from the Virginia Creeper Trail in Damascus, Virginia
* and dozens of accompanying annual
festivals that are held in the surrounding area!
There is a road behind us that you can walk up into the hills if you like to hike- From the top there are breathtaking views of Grandfather Mountain.
If you can't do hills, we are minutes from a lovely little walking track that is perfectly level. And of course we are less than thirty minutes from practically ANYWHERE in the high country!
There is a shuttle that comes out this way during the week- once in the morning and returns in the late afternoon. When I am home, I am always willing to help with rides- we are three miles from the first Appalcart stop which will carry you just about anyplace in Boone you'd like to go for free.
