Over 1/2 mile waterfront on property and fun hiking trails right on our property.
80-year old restored farmhouse, nestled in the mountains on the outskirts of the town of Burnsville, North Carolina.
This artistic home is situated on 18 acres and over a mile of River frontage on the famous Cane River that is stocked with trout.
Experience the 'SPA' feel throughout this home with river rock showers, full chef's kitchen and warm colors and lighting throughout. Area is rich in history and local culture. Make sure you make some time to visit local museums and walk along the town square in downtown Burnsville.
An incredible farmer’s market is held on Saturday spring-to-fall and is rich with local produce and organic products.
Pass through the town, you will continue to drive along country roads and pass picturesque cows and old barns. We guarantee a smile will cross your face and your shoulders will begin to relax.
The worries of life somehow will be forgotten. Often parked along the sides of the road are trucks where local fly fisherman and their sons are fishing for trout. Make sure you wave and say hello.
Some mornings as you drive, you will see a herd of deer cross the misty road as they come to the Cane River to drink or look for berries. Often, you will cross paths with roosters and chickens as they search for food. Watch too for small bears along the river, but please just observe!
As you turn onto the driveway, cross over the Cane River and enter the property, make a mental note of the local swimming hole on the left. It is a favorite watering hole in the summer and locals call it the “rope hole”. Good for cooling off in the summer.
Pass the entry gate, and you will see an old cattle barn. In summer months, grapes grow on the vines up and along the top of the roof of the barn. When they ripen, make sure you pick a few.
After you settle in, take some time to sit on the rocking chair porch with a glass of wine or sweet tea. The rockers are hand-made by locals. You can listen to the water as it flows over the natural rocks and giant boulders and the water passes along the shores of the pristine Cane River.
Mornings are great for walking along the path of the river located just outside your back door. Around the corner, from the house in the summer months, we grow a kitchen garden with fresh strawberries, corn, tomatoes and herbs.
Wading in the river is a must for the summer afternoons. We suggest wearing old tennis shoes or such for traction. Unlike swimming pools, cut-offs and old t-shirts are preferred!
Dinner out with “people watching” is fun in downtown Burnsville. But most like to cook in our state of the art “country” kitchen using local produce and fish. The kitchen is a favorite of most and is equipped with a double oven and nice cookware. There are plenty of plates and utensils for families. The chilly water from the tap is from a hand-dug water-well, so please use what you need conservatively.
There will be plenty of room to serve your meals from our antique 12-foot long table from an old-local country-store. Everyone will enjoy dinner as they pull up a bench round the dinner table. Entertainment optional….talk and get to know each other again.

Farmhouse on the Cane - Burnsville NC
After looking for over 2-years we found it with 'Farmhouse on the Cane!' We completed a renovation of a 1940's home which took over a year's time.
This is not your typical rental home and would love for you to enjoy it as well.
We also own the historic Nu Wray Inn Bed & Breakfast (Built in 1833) on the Town Square about 10-minutes away.
Read the previous comments as you have to experience to truly believe it.

We fell in love with the amazing 'Andy Griffith/ Old Town' feel of Burnsville (Only 10-mins away) with the friendliest people you'll ever meet. The natural beauty of the the Blue Ridge Mountains with local farms will shave years off your stress level.
We very convenient to Asheville, only 35-minutes away, Boone which is a little over an 1 hour and 2.5 hours to Charlotte, so we're very easy to get to.
The River and beautiful countryside.
Thanks, Bob. We will definitely be back! We really did have an incredible time. We're still talking about it. Honestly, the week was perfect, and the best time to be away. Here in Raleigh, the temps reached up into the high nineties all week, and one day, it was apparently between 105-110 (with the humidity index), so being up in cool Burnsville was the smart place to be! :)
Oh-- and about our fly-fishing techniques-- We both fish all the time at the beach, but that's the first time I'd ever been fly-fishing, which I now think I much prefer to regular rod fishing. There's something very satisfying about using something so primitive (even the 'fly') -- and fishing in such clear waters-- to catch trout. I loved it.
Walk out on the stones into the water just a little ways; throw the line out as far as you can, preferably upstream and toward the big rocks out there (under which we suspect the trout hide); watch the line go downstream; and once the line is above water again, throw it again. Oh-- and, most importantly, your wrist/throwing technique has to be somewhat perfect-- as mine was-- but that's about it. :) Of course, I think it helps to have a river that's stocked, too.
We hope to be back up there again soon-- definitely next summer, but hopefully before then, too.
Thanks again for everything!
My son and family (wife, granddaughter 3 years old and granddaughter 2 months old) were visiting with us from Miami in October. We picked this beautiful farmhouse because it was somewhat secluded and on a river. No disappointments. The house is decorated quite lovely and the kitchen is awesome. Our favorite thing to do was the fire pit at night. It was was the first time for my older granddaughter to have s'mores and wiener roast.
We found the home and property to be quiet and very relaxing. I was hoping for better fishing but we still had fun. The evenings around the fire pit was very relaxing and became something to look forward to daily. Due to my handicap, I had trouble walking on uneven grounds and the rocks at the river but I stilled enjoyed our stay at the Refurbished Farmhouse. Thanks to Bob and Lisa Cohen for letting us rent your place.
My husband and I along with our two kids ( 12 & 14 ), just spent a week in this wonderful house. Very clean and kitchen was well stocked, it has a gas stove, new for me but I managed not to burn anything. The upstairs bedroom was very comfortable, some of the best nights of sleep we have ever had away from home. We all fished in the river daily, caught a few fish, water was crystal clear and cold. We drove to the rope swing and spent an afternoon there and had a blast . It was nice to have wi-fi , our phones didn't work as expected. Definitely away from it all, grocery store was not to far, but be prepared to travel for eating out the small town has limited dinning and check times most are only open till 7 or 8 pm and closed on Sunday's and Monday's . All in all it was a very relaxing vacation, just what we wanted
If you're looking for a place to stay in the Great Smokey Mountains THIS IS IT! The Farmhouse has everything you could want & need. The kitchen is amazing and the overall feel of the house was so cozy & comfortable. You can tell that Bob & Lisa invest a lot of time making sure that their guests are very welcomed. We used the binder with all of the helpful suggestions on where to eat..hike..etc. And the location of the Farmhouse is beautiful. My husband caught a lot of fish right outside the front door on the cane river. We also hiked the trails on the property and spent our evenings around the fire. We could not have asked for a better place and we can't wait to stay again! !!!

Away from the hustle and bustle yet close enough to enjoy the city of Asheville. If you are looking to escape, we highly recommend the Farmhouse on the Cane. Just sitting outside on the rocking chairs listening the river, I could feel the stress of business disappear. Not to mention if you like fishing or fly fishing, catching trout was a great challenge. I ended up catching an assortment of 10 rainbow trout and brown trout and red eye bass out of the river. I am not a very experienced fly fisherman yet, but had a blast even catching the small fish. There is a road on the other side of the river so an occasional car or loud truck may drive by but other than that it was incredibly peaceful. The house itself was decorated beautifully and had all the amenities necessary to make us feel at home. Great kitchen for cooking as well. Downtown Burnsville was definitely a quaint throwback of an old school town, that was a joy to walk around and on Saturday they had a nice small farmers market. I highly recommend this home for your next escape!
The Farmhouse on the Cane was the perfect get away for our family. The house is well maintained, beautiful, and exceeded my expectations. The surroundings property was perfect for my 2 pre teen children to explore and enjoy. The setting is just amazing. This house also has all of the amenities you could want. And our hosts, Lisa and Bob, provide everything you could need about the area in a binder, including restaurant suggestions as well as hikes and near by attractions.
My family had a wonderful time and will definitely be back in the future!
