Iconic mountain farmhouse nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains. This recently renovated artist’s home is the perfect balance of contemporary design and rustic charm with local artwork and antiques throughout. A clear, bold mountain creek runs a stones throw from the front door filling the entire environment with the calm, soothing sounds of rushing water. Surrounded by a large yard and forest lands, the house offers outdoor enthusiasts a sanctuary of sounds and sights.

The farmhouse is located in the Pensacola community, south of Burnsville nestled in the Black Mountain chain in the shadow of Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Rockies. Located approx 8 miles south of Burnsville, where you’ll discover live music, libations, art, shops, coffee, casual & fine dining.
The area is rich in outdoor activities for all ages, from hiking, white water rafting, tubing, kayaking, gem mining, horse back riding and more. Approx 50 minutes to the south is the city of Asheville which has been called the ‘Paris of the South’.
Within a 50 minute drive you can explore the urban excitement of Asheville with its buzzing art scene featuring hundreds of fine artists, performing arts venues, crafters, folk artists and numerous galleries. Asheville’s vibrant food scene is diverse and runs the gamut from four-star cuisine to unique food trucks and the beer scene boasts the most breweries per capita of any U.S. city.
Very peaceful and relaxing space. Well appointed, comfortable, and clean. Not much happening in Burnsville with C-19 still in force but Asheville isn't far and plenty of things were open there. The Parkway is also close and easily accessed for a drive. Pleanty of hiking in the vicinity as well. We saw several deer, loads of wild turkey, and a very large black bear just up the mountain on 197. I also enjoyed climbing the mountain on my bike. Very little traffic and a solid workout.Paul 6/29/2020
Great getaway The location is everything a quiet, peaceful mountain retreat should be. We were lucky to enjoy good weather for our stay so got to spend time at the creek, out on the hammock and swing set, and roasting marshmallows at the fire pit. We also spent time hiking nearby. Even if it had been rainy, though, the house had plenty of comfortable spaces indoors to relax and spend time together. The kitchen was clean and well equipped and made it easy to enjoy meals together, too. It was everything we needed for a long weekend away from home!Helene S. 6/11/2020
Charming and Relaxing House We loved the layout of this house so much that we did not want to leave. I like the fact that you can have your own space even when others are in the house. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch or on the patio. You can definitely hear the rushing creek in the front. It will lull you to sleep. The living room picture window is beautiful. Through it we observed a wild turkey on his visit every morning. Sometimes you could spot a deer. The wildlife show begins at 6:15 am for the early riser. The bonus/ laundry room was spacious and created the sense of open living with the woodlands on the back of the house. The house does sit close to the road. So you might hear occasional noisy vehicles however the creek does tend to drown out most noise. I especially loved the dormer window seats in the upstairs Master suite. A few kitchen items need replacing such as the stained coffee maker and tea kettle, and worn saute pans. We enjoyed being able to use the gas grill. We appreciate that fire wood is provided for the fire pit also. The claw foot tubs are lovely but may pose some trouble for older guests or those with accessibility issues. We thought the beds were comfortable. There was plenty of closet storage for our items. We certainly will not forget this home and we hope to return one day.Heather M. 5/29/2020
This is a great place for a family to unwind. Secluded but not to far from essential needs. There is plenty of things around the house and the area to keep a family busy. The house is very spacious and clean with comfortable amenities. John and Kerstin were always a email away and responded very fast. We had no issues at all and would recommend this house to anyone.Zachary 3/19/2020
