Located in Fairview, only 11 miles southeast of downtown Asheville (6 miles from city limits) and 6 miles from I-40 and the Blue Ridge Parkway, this private residence is in the country, yet very convenient to the many attractions of the area, including the Biltmore Estate, Lake Lure, Chimney Rock State Park, and (of course) the mountains with their spectacular views, waterfalls, and tourist attractions. Every season has its gifts, from summer festivals and craft fairs to fall color, winter holidays at the Biltmore House, and spring blossoms. There is an Amish market (bakery, fresh eggs, and other goodies) next door...Across the pasture.
NO SMOKING anywhere on the property, in other words NON-SMOKERS ONLY.

The mountains of Western North Carolina, near Asheville, are one of most beautiful and relaxing places in the world, if you exclude pulling weeds.
The views from the 50+ acre property and lake are wonderful. The birds, horses, goats and other animals are a joy to behold.
nice and cozy and easy to many sites. enjoyed it very much! Thanks so much.
My wife, our two dogs and I spent 15 days at Moore's Pond Farm. The owners were great, kind and went out of their way to make us welcome. Since we drove in from out of state, they were actually willing to receive 3 boxes and a set of golf clubs before we arrived! Then on the Sunday that was our first full day, they went on a 20+ minute hike around the trails on the property to orient us. The house we rented was very private, not even visible from the owner's home. Each morning we took our two well behaved dogs, off-leash on a walk around the owner's home and up on trails that climb up the mountain behind the property. This made our stay super easy. Getting to Asheville was simple and all the things you might need were close in Fairview. Why I cannot give this 5 stars is because the house itself is showing its age and really needs updating. Things worked ok, but everything is a little old. For those that would be coming from city water, this is well water and some people do not like how it tastes or how it cleans. If rustic is perfect for you, then you will not have complaints. For us, holes patched, fresh paint, yard and dog area cleaned up would have improved our view of this property.
Loved the Gate house! We booked it for our honeymoon. We just wanted to take a long weekend to get away from our busy life. It was off away from the hustle and bustle of the city. But close enough for a 20 minute drive into Asheville. The property is gorgeous and surround by mountains. The fall colors were so beautiful. It was great getting to bring our dogs for the long weekend. We visited the goats which I loved getting to pet them and we plan to come back sometime in April to see all the baby goats. Chuck and Sarah were great and super helpful. The Amish market was a so close you could walk to it! Just follow the private drive to the end and there well be signs for the market. Their sticky buns were amazing! We got to stock up on some butter too. Just a great getaway to relax an stay in. We did do the night tour of the Biltmore which was so neat. It was just 15 minutes away from the house. Love this place! You won't regret booking here!
Our second stay at this little house, and it had everything we needed. Very comfy! We will see you again next October! Thanks for everything.
The house is very well stocked and was ready to go when we got there. The property is very pretty and we enjoyed walking the trail around the lake. Very close to Biltmore, Blue Ridge Parkway and Downtown Asheville.
Thanks for wonderful stay Chuck and Sarah! Looking forward to coming back.
