Recently remodeled, your vacation retreat has a fully equipped kitchen, wood floor in the living area, air/heat. Amenities include WiFi, cable HD tv, DVD, gas outdoor grill, outdoor furniture. A two+ acre pond is ready for sitting and enjoying watching herons and a variety of birds, or feeding the resident mallards. There are miles of hiking trails in the woods on this 50-acre property, from moderate to strenuous. An additional highlight is that this is a small working farm, and two small goats. There is a fenced-in yard for dogs.

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.

About Joseph Sabbag

Why Joseph Sabbag chose Fairview

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.

Absolutely amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost a week here while we explored the area for a future move. The house is very well stocked if you want to cook and close to all of the Asheville attractions if you want to go out. Chuck and Sarah go above and beyond to make this feel like your home away from home. The goats and Llama were also great along with their new pup Panda. Can't wait to visit again.

Great location! Beautiful Views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the week of Christmas. We were disappointed that the area around seemed to shut down for Christmas and the goats were on their own holiday. Had issues with electrical outlets and refrigerator that the Owners were very quick to fix. Loved the homeyness of the house. Very comfortable. I think we would re-book just a different time of year.

Peaceful mini vacation

  • 4 of 5

What a peaceful, quiet place to get away from it all-and only a 15 minute drive into Asheville. While we did not have the best weather, we enjoyed our stay in the country. We loved meeting the goats and enjoyed the view of the pasture, pond, and mountains in the distance.

Charming, perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A charming and comfortable setting. It was perfect for getting away but close enough to Ashville to enjoy great restaurants, Biltmore and the amazing mountains. I hope I can return next year!

We stayed at Chuck and Sarah's gate house for one week, with our two kids. It was really peaceful and beautiful. The kids loved visiting the goats, and Chuck and Sarah's dog, Panda! They had such a good time walking around on the property! We spent our time exploring lots of little towns around the Asheville area, and this place was perfectly situated, and allowed us to do this easily. We have visited Asheville many times before, and this was definitely our favorite of the places we have stayed. Hopefully, we will make it back there soon! Highly recommend!

Easily accessible to area attractions, great host and hostess. Comfortable and spacious, quaint and cozy.... stocked well and great if you have dogs, because of fenced area of the cottage. Loved the farm and pond to relax by, and meeting the goats ..Looking forward to another visit to Moore's Pond farm🐐🐐..
