    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!

    Nicely restored farmhouse in a tucked away location not far from downtown Burnesville and the Blue Ridge Parkway. John and Kerstin were very communicative and accomodating. The farmhouse is well-appointed. We loved the spacious kitchen and the gas stove with convection oven. The master bedroom has a king-sized memory foam mattress that was very comfortable. We will definitely be staying here again!

    An absolutely lovely farmhouse. The pictures honestly don't do it justice; the whole farmhouse has such warm and luxurious atmosphere. Not only did it have everything we want and need, after a day of activities we were looking forward to coming back to the house to unwind. Our only regret is that we didn't say longer!
