    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!

    Perfect. This house is straight out of a fairy tale. From the creek right outside the front door, to the clawfoot tubs in both of the bathrooms, to the fire pit on the back patio, to the beautiful property overall, my family and I are now obsessed with this house and WILL be returning for future visits. Already planning one for the summer. We thought the "no cell service" thing would be an issue. but honestly, it made it better. We were in our own little world and loved every second of it.

    Amazing time at a beautiful home! My friends and I had such a great time at the Iconic Yellow Farmhouse. The drive is a bit far out, but the house is adorable and more spacious than we thought! John even has a guest guide for nearby trails, restaurants, etc. and it was super helpful! Also love the backyard with fire pit and hammock. Some of us walked up the mountain in the backyard, it’s a challenging trail but pretty fun!

    A lovely home with character! Both the home and property are relaxing (make sure to sit by the stream!) Kitchen is well stocked to for any type of cooking you may want to do but also a beautiful mountain ride to burnsville for restaurants and shops.
