About Alli Finlay
My wife and I welcome you to the home and farm where I was born and raised. My mother and father built the home in the early 1950's on farm property purchased by my grandfather in the 1920's. After serving four years in the Marine Corps and completing a degree at Western Carolina University in the 1970's, my wife and I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to raise our family and pursue careers. We had the good fortune in 2003 to be able to purchase a summer cottage on twenty acres adjacent to my father's property from another family member. Although we lived in Georgia, my wife and I still considered Hendersonville home and returned to live here full time in 2004. Although we are located here, our daughter Alli manages the bookings for us, so your initial contact will be with her.
Alli Finlay purchased this House in 1953
Why Alli Finlay chose Hendersonville
The house is located in a beautiful rural setting but is convenient to shopping and downtown Hendersonville. It’s a peaceful place to just relax or as a resting place from your busy days at all the activities available in the area.
What makes this House unique
Although this was my childhood home, it has been renovated over the years and is such a wonderful place for family or friends to gather. Most of the family agrees that the patio is the place to be. But even a rainy afternoon can't spoil the trip. Just open the large windows on the back porch and read a book or take a nap while you listen to the rain.

An escape for the whole family
The house was much larger inside than it looks! Very spacious with plenty of room for each person to have their own space while also being comfortable enough to gather together in the living room or outside on the patio overlooking the orchard and mountains. The kitchen had every tool or gadget needed to prepare any meal you'd wish! The property itself was big enough to explore, giving you the feeling of privacy. All the while in a couple minutes you could be in town to take advantage of the many amenities Hendersonville offers. My family enjoyed relaxing in the hammock, playing tetherball(a game I hadn't seen since middle school!), hiking the property and exploring Hendersonville. In the evenings the patio served as a gathering place to have a campfire, and in the mornings the perfect place to sip coffee. I would very much recommend choosing this home away from home for your next mountain getaway! The owners were helpful and friendly, while also being very accommodating.
Attended a wedding with my entire family & needed a place big enough for 4 adults & 4 children. This property was perfect. Everyone has adequate room, the kids loved the bunkbeds & getting to run the grounds. Very clean and well furnished home. Felt like I was staying at my Grandma's house.
Beautiful setting with a peaceful view of a apple orchard. Plenty of room both inside and outside on the patio for family gatherings. Everything we needed was there. This is our second time at this home and we'll be back!
Loved This Property!
Couldn't believe how clean and well cared for this house was. The owners took major effort to make sure our stay was wonderful. The house was so clean and well stocked with every convenience you could need. The backyard was absolutely beautiful and the perfect setting for a relaxing evening with a glass of wine. I would highly recommend staying at this property especially if cleanliness and comfort is a priority to you.
Lovely view. Very comfortable home. Great time. Hope to come back again.
We stayed here for six nights with our three college age children. The house exceeded our expectations! It is well maintained and really clean. The views were breathtaking and our dogs loved the freedom of running around. We loved the gas fireplace and even used the fire pit and the grill. We will definitely be coming back!
The Orchards at Golden Glow is located in a beautiful rural setting but is convenient to shopping and restaurants. It’s a peaceful place to just relax or as a resting place from your busy days at all the activities available in the area. Downtown Hendersonville and Historic Flat Rock are only minutes away and it is only a short drive to many other area attractions. Some of those attractions include DuPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, the NC Arboretum, The Biltmore House, the City of Asheville, Brevard Music Center, Chimney Rock & Lake Lure, and the list goes on…. We would invite you to stay for a few days or the whole week to enjoy our mountain home.
