A two+ acre pond is ready for canoeing, 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, with various crops growing in season and a small french alpine dairy goat herd. Six does have kids in the spring, late march through may.
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.

We look forward to meeting you.
Chuck C Campbell and Sarah York purchased this cottage in 1986
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.
Property was nice and cozy. Chuck and Sara are lively people. Location is very convenient to access any activities. We had a good time. Thank you! We will be back.
Our family had a wonderful time. Our daughters, 8 & 10, especially loved Velvet, the Llama. The cottage was very comfortable. I recommend the short stroll to the Amish market. Thanks, Chuck and Sarah...
Our family of 4 loved staying in The Gate House. The house had an amazingly equipped kitchen with all of the comforts and amenities of home. Chuck and Sarah were very nice, informative and great teachers of goat life. Sarah was patient in teaching our entire family how to milk the goats, which the kids did quite frequently. The barn was just a short 5 minute walk. We spent a lot of time there sitting on the dock with all of the goats. They would continuously nudge us until we pet them or just lay at our feet like our dog. The kids loved it!!! Velvet the llama was a huge hit too. We also enjoyed walking to the Amish market for their baked goodies. The location was very convenient. We were surprised at how quick the drive into Asheville was yet we felt far in the country. It was also a quick drive to many great hikes. We hope to visit Moores Pond again soon.
I wanted a little R&R and invited my family to join me for the first 2 days. My 6-year-old niece loved this house. She picked it out because of the farm. She enjoyed feeding Pee Wee and seeing the other goats. The farm fresh eggs that Sarah welcomed us with were absolutely delicious. We were close to other local farms which we toured as well. The home is in a fantastic location and to my surprise, it was not that far from downtown Asheville. I usually stay in downtown Asheville, however, I was less than 15 minutes away. I was also close to Biltmore as well. We will definately stay here again. My dog loved it too.
Very secluded and quiet getaway but 20 minutes from Ashville and Biltmore. Other reviewers commented on the property being close to a shooting range and you could hear shots during the daytime while outside, didn't notice it so much while inside the house. The house, furnishings were nice and comfortable--beds were really comfortable. Enjoyed meeting Sarah and Chuck and all of the goats (especially Peewee) and the Llama. We were greeted with a basket of fresh farm eggs, but we didn't cook breakfast while there--very nice though! We spent one day driving to Cherokee and driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway--best part of our weekend! Will definitely stay here again when we plan another trip to Asheville.
We had a wonderful stay at Moore's Pond Farm! We were there for the USA Cycling National Cyclocross Championship held at the Biltmore Estate. The Farm cottage was in a good location, easy to get to the race. We loved the pretty lights showing us the way when we arrived late at night. We didn't have much time for exploring, but did visit the nice little Amish grocery store and had a quick walkabout to see the goats, chickens and llamas. The cottage had everything we needed and we were even able to catch a little of the GB Packer game! Go Pack! Thanks for a great weekend in a beautiful setting :)
