    The photos do not capture the immense warmth of this farmhouse. Deer hopping in rhe morning, lightning bugs dancing at night and the over-all comfort of a place that feels so familiar. The home is warm and cool, tasteful, excellent furniture with all the right touches. Thank you!!!!

    We just finished a lovely two week stay at the Yellow Farm House. It was everything we could have hoped for. As many say, the pictures don’t do it justice. It’s spacious, well appointed, quite comfortable and CLEAN!!The AC units kept both floors quite comfortable throughout. Mornings were spent on the porch with our coffee, listening to the Creek and evenings were spent by the fire pit surrounded by fireflies. Many meals were cooked at home with every pan and utensil we could have hoped for. The king bed upstairs was very comfortable! And the charming claw foot tubs set the rustic tone. While out and about, downtown Burnsville was a 15-20 easy drive for great shops, restaurants and breweries. Asheville, Micaville, Mt. Mitchell and Spruce Pine all an easy drive as well. Kerstin and John were very communicative throughout. We’d highly recommend this secluded spot to anyone who wants to unplug (though great wifi) and unwind with a glorious smoky mountain backdrop!

    Cozy home away from home We thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful stay at the farmhouse. Loved relaxing on the wrap around porch in the porch swing as we listened to the lull of the stream next to the property.
    Thank you for a lovely stay and for being so attentive to ensure we had everything we needed!

    The Yellow Farmhouse was charming, spacious and well appointed. There was even a bubbling brook for soothing background sounds. It was a very relaxing place to spend a week. There were also great hikes in the area, which we enjoyed.

    I have been wanting to stay at this Iconic Yellow Farmhouse for a couple of years and finally made it to stay there with my family friend. Everything was as written in the description and Kerstin & John had let me know all instructions in a timely and clear manner. Many things were provided, like toilet papers, hand soaps, all sorts of detergents. I loved that the floor was super clean as we don't wear shoes in the house. Kids loved the swing in the porch and the swing and slide set in front of the house. We would probably go back to this Farmhouse in a different season to enjoy the nature around the house.

    Great getaway My friends and I came from West TN to hike...the farmhouse was very cute, in a remote and private area...the owner emailed to check on us and make sure everything was good...we couldn't find the firestarter and sent email to ask...the owner got back to us really quickly. The wifi was great...TV was set up perfect...very easy to switch to blu-ray or back to streaming.
    Only issue I could see was the swingset and hammock were in areas with tall grass and weeds...if we had brought our children, they wouldn't have been able to enjoy those things.

    So Lovely! The property was exactly as listed and even better! Lovely brook running through the property that makes the perfect sound to lull you to sleep at night! My only feedback would be that VRBO will list this house as 9 miles from Mount Mitchell...which is true if you are a bird. The reality is it is nearly an hour drive to the trail head for Mount Mitchell - which was absolutely fine and so worth it!

    Peaceful Mountain Respite The tranquillity of the fresh mountain stream coupled with the breezes risking through the luscious woods provided the only sounds (and the ocasional birdsongs) heard throughout our stay.
    A most welcoming atmosphere is felt immediately upon entering The Yellow Farm House. The comfortable beds and warm of the fire pit has all sleeping like there were no worries in the world.
    If you are seeking a place to rejuvenate, this is definitely the place!

    What a lovely house with beautiful views. Enjoyed the inside and out. Especially loved the porch with the views and sounds of the creek. Kerstin and John were quickly responsive to our questions and we would certainly book this house again. Hope we get the opportunity!
