This 1926 renovated farmhouse has charm that will make you smile. Less than 10 minutes to Asheville, it offers peace, warmness, and relaxation. Everyone who visits comments on the enchanting feel of this unique artists retreat.

The space

The open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, skylights, unique boulder landscaping, and comfy beds create a happy oasis minutes away from Asheville fun. Inside, enjoy 2 comfortable bedroom suites with their own private bathrooms, spacious kitchen, and an open living room and dining room. Outside, warm yourself at the fire pit, relax on the back deck or front porch, or feed the resident goats and chickens if you wish. Enjoy the unique large boulders in the landscape, and the artwork in the interior of this true Arts and Crafts gem.

Guest access

Both bedrooms have comfortable queen beds and jacuzzi tubs in both bathrooms. Large kitchen with stainless steel appliances and washer and dryer. Large open great room and dining area. The loft area in the pictures is private storage for the owner, sorry. Coffee, tea, towels, and sheets are all provided.

Other things to note

1)There is a mini farm in the back yard with two goats and two chickens. They are very friendly and sweet. Most people actually say that the goats are the highlight of their stay! The goats names are Chloe and Willis. The chickens names are Holdout and Cluck Norris. If you would like to feed the goats, which everyone does, it is really easy. It is like feeding a dog. I will send feeding instructions upon check in. If you do not wish to feed them, I can come over every morning around the side of the house and feed them myself. You can feed them leftovers and so forth as well. They love nuts and berries. Really just about anything.
2) I do have a $30 fee for extra guests over 4, and this includes babies and children. Thank you for notifying me of any children and dogs that will be staying and please sign up with AirBnB appropriately.
3)There is hi-speedinternet access, and surround sound stereo, but there is NO TELEVISION. I feel like it takes away from the farmhouse experience so I choose not to have one.

Please treat the house as you would that of a close friend or family member. I would like to find the house very close to the condition in which I left it.

-The small loft is a private storage area and is off limits
-Some dogs are allowed, we just have to talk about it, but they MUST stay out of the goat pen, no matter how sweet they are or whatever.
-Smoking is allowed only outdoors or on either porch (please use the ashtrays provided).
-The chimney is old so absolutely no fires allowed (use the nice fire pit outside instead).

John's house is perfectly located near Asheville and the surrounding areas. His home is lovely and very thoughtfully and creatively designed and makes you feel super cozy and right at home. The goats and chickens are wonderful and sweet so that was a lovely addition to the trip to get to take care of them (though if you don't want to that's totally fine with John too). Thank you so much for having us in your home and telling us all the wonderful places to go near your home and around Asheville!

If you're looking for the perfect Asheville experience, it doesn't get much better than John's Nature Inspired Farmhouse. We had such an amazing time last year that we couldn't wait to come back and hang out with our goat-friends Chloe & Willis. The farmhouse is utterly charming, incredibly comfortable, and located close to all the best parts of town and away from the tourist traps. In addition to being a thoughtful host, John is a gifted artist, so you're surrounded by his natural stone creations in the yard and his fountains in the house. You couldn't ask for a cooler, more authentic aesthetic. I adore everything about the farmhouse and can't imagine staying anywhere else in Asheville. Thanks for another fantastic weekend, John! Best. Host. Ever.

John was a superb host. His house was just as awesome. The goats and chickens in the back were hilarious and fun to feed and play with. The house had a lot of privacy yet it was only an 8 minute drive to downtown. I'll be staying here next time I visit Asheville. Thanks a lot, John!

John's house is a great place to stay & relax while in town. The house is spacious and it's great having private bathrooms for each room. The goats are super friendly and are always looking for snacks & attention. John was super responsive and let us know he'd help us with anything but we were good to go from beginning to end. I highly recommend and will definitely be coming back!

Interaction with guests

I stay on the property adjacent to the house on a small homestead when I am renting the main farmhouse out. I respect your privacy and will not come over unless you need something or have a question. In fact, I rarely even meet my guests. I am happy to be available anytime for questions and needs that may arise.
