Looking for a relaxing get away; this is the place. This beautiful farmhouse has been in the family for 4 generations. The Farm house has 3 bedrooms 1 bath; 2000 sq. feet; will accommodate 6 - 7 people. Located on 50+ acres where you can hike and explore. Great Mountain Bike Trails within 1 mile of property. See Moore Spring Trails. Located 1/2 mile from Dan River and 4 miles from Hanging Rock State Park. The view from this property is breathtaking. 1 Bedroom downstairs; 2 upstairs. 2 queens, 1 full and 1 twin. Linens furnished. Has cable TV with DVR in living room & downstairs BR. No phone but good cell service with verizon is available in this area. Ceiling fans a/c window units in rooms downstairs; upstairs has a/c window units. 4 beautiful rock veneer fireplace's downstairs. 1 in each room. Original hardwood floors upstairs. If you want to go back in time and stay in a historic farmhouse this is the place but we think you will want to spend most of your time on the front porch where you can relax and take in the beautiful view of Hanging Rock and Moores Knob and of course you will probably see lots of wildlife including deer and wild turkeys. No neighbors in site; this a GREAT PLACE to enjoy your vacation while visiting wonderful Stokes County..
The Coal Ash spilled on the Dan River was 50 miles downstream..so river activities are still great.
35 minutes from Winston-Salem - 1 hour from Greensboro 2 hours from Raleigh & Charlotte
I'm the 4th generation property owner. My great garndfather built this house around 1902. There is a family cemetery located on the property. I grew up here and Stokes County has lots of recreational activities to offer. I have lived in many places throughout the US but this area is where my heart has always been. Love it here; you will too!
Debbie Vaden purchased this farmhouse in 1900
The best thing about this property is its incredible view and the privacy the 50 acre property affords.
Debbie was great at letting us know what to do and expect. The house and property were perfect for the family vacation we wanted. I didn't want to travel and stay in a motel/ hotel. The Vaden property was exactly what I wanted for a family trip including kids and pets. The view alone was worth the trip. I hope to return soon and have already recommended it to others.
This was our 4th stay at the Vaden Farmhouse, and every time in winter, usually January. We come here to escape and relax after the holidays; an exodus from the city, schedules, and commitments. Mom, Dad, a small dog, 2 kids with a couple of friends. The Farmhouse seems to recharge our inner batteries by keeping everything simple, the way it must have been a few generations ago. Others might prefer an all-inclusive, itinerary-driven vacation. You won’t find that here. Look at the photos. Just an older, comfortable homestead, dozens of acres of woods, pastures, and creeks, and a million dollar view from the big front porch. With so much land, you might not see another person for a week unless you drove off the property. Where else are you going to find that on VRBO? Still, there’s plenty to do, even in winter. We climbed Hanging Rock (which dominates the view in front of the house) and attended the polar plunge. The kids played endless football and soccer games on the south field. Spontaneous hikes start at the front door and can take any direction, following 4x4 trails into the forest. The dog wore herself out. Meals were the highlight of the day. We cooked a pot of spaghetti and ate it outside, cowboy style. Then roasted doughnuts on a stick over the fire pit for dessert. This led to ‘steak on a stick’ the next night, whole chickens the next. Debbie is a very accommodating host, with spot-on communication before and after. We will return to Vaden Farm again and again because it is distinctively beautiful and a great value.
So grateful for the time we were able to spend at the house.We look forward to returning to make more special memories. From relaxing at the house, walking on the property to exploring the surrounding towns our stay was just what we needed. Hanging Rock State Park was easy to drive to.The owner was fantastic to us which we were very grateful for. Wish I was rocking on the porch right now.
We had a lovely time at this family farmhouse. Our visit was in March while there was still a nip in the air, and we had fun keeping the fires going in the two cast iron fireplaces for warmth. The kids even got to make s'mores. We hadn't even stayed the first night when our kids were asking if we could come back again soon! The views are fantastic and the beds super cozy. There were a few minor maintenance issues, but none to detract from our stay. Only real hic-up was figuring out the TV, DVD, VHS, Dish system. ( The remotes are in the vase! We will know next time :-)
Great house, very comfortable, and very nice and helpful people to rent from. Plan to go back. Such easy access to Hanging Rock too.
We loved it. Beautiful property and interesting history. The owner Debbie met us there to welcome us and show us around. Oh and that porch with the views! Debbie went out of her way to find relatives that were lost and then lead them back to the house!!! We grilled our dinners and also enjoyed a bonfire, really nice.
