Venture outside of Asheville for an unforgettable stay at this 3-bedroom, 2-bath vacation rental house that sleeps 8 in Leicester! Set on 24 acres of land, this cabin will make you feel like one of the farmers, as you wake to a rooster crow each morning and trek off into the forest to explore. From the front porch to the backwoods, excitement awaits at Pokeweed Farm!
Bedroom 1: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Twin-over-Full Bunk Bed | Bedroom 3: Twin-over-Full Bunk Bed | Additional Sleeping: Air Mattresses (Upon Request)
Get a head start on the day with a walk around Pokeweed Farm, bringing your best bait and tackle in tow. Cast your line in the stocked pond and wait for a bite, while the local farm dogs stop by to say good morning. While you stay here, be sure to ask for a tour of the farmhouse, where kids and adults alike will enjoy meeting all of the local animals including cows, horses and chickens.
While the kids retreat to the nearby tree house to pose as little explorers, you can head inside 1,500 square feet of living space for some time spent off your feet. Unwind with your favorite show on the flat-screen TV in the living room, or unplug with a feel-good book by the gas fireplace.
Refuel the family with a hearty home-cooked meal in the evening. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and ample counter space so you can perfect any farm-to-table type of dinner. Enjoy dining in around the 8-person table, or bring the meal outside for an at-home picnic on the front porch!
End the night outside by the wood-burning grill, where you can cook up some s'mores to-go before exploring again in the last bit of evening light. With 24 acres of sustainable land, you'll need all the time you can get to traverse the whole property!
Retire inside for a peaceful night before another busy day at Pokeweed Farm. Send the teens to rest on the twin-over-full bunk in the third bedroom, while the tiny tykes are lulled to sleep by a bedtime story in the second bedroom. When you're ready to doze off, a plush queen bed awaits you in the first bedroom.
After spending time at Pokeweed Farm, continue your local experience with additional tours just 5 miles down the road. Indulge in a behind-the-scenes tour of Addison Farms Vineyard, or drive down to Dr. King's Farm for an up-close experience with bison, camels, elk and deer!
Drive 45 minutes into Nantahala National Forest to begin your journey on the Blue Ridge Parkway! You'll be treated to spectacular views as you drive down winding roads and through storybook tunnels, with pit stops at the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, The North Carolina Arboretum and the Biltmore Rose Garden.
Experience the bustle of the city with a day-trip into Ashville, just 20 miles down the road. This up-and-coming city has something for everyone to enjoy. Send the foodies to dive into the booming culinary scene, the creatives to explore the River Arts District and the history buffs on a trolley tour across the city.
