Come visit the beautiful Appalachian Mountains we call home. Make yourself comfortable in the quaint cottage at Quiver Full Farm. Our cottage has 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, and nice country eat in kitchen. A large living room space for relaxing, reading, or playing games. Our living room also has a futon that could be used for extra sleeping space. Our cottage has air conditioning and ceiling fans for the warmer months and a monitor heater for the cooler months.
Our farms is full of beautiful views. You can enjoy those views from the cottage or you can spend time exploring our land. We currently have 26 acres of pasture, woods and two really neat old tobacco barns. You might have an opportunity to catch a glimpse of a wild turkey or deer grazing in the pasture. Perfect place for children to run and play. We have our property fenced in for our children's safety and for our farm animals. We currently have 2 jersey milk cows that we milk twice a day by hand and would welcome you to to watch. We have chickens that provide us with farm fresh eggs daily. We have 2 horses and 2 sheep. We enjoy caring for our animals, and enjoy sharing the experience of our farm with others.
Our property is very conveniently located near main roads, but at the same time very private. We are located 3 1/2 miles from downtown Mars Hill. Mars Hill is a small town but full of mountain culture and home to Mars Hill College. Restaurants and shopping are located in town. Madison County is also well known for the historic town of Marshall, NC. Arts, crafts, music and more can be found in this special place. Madison county is an adventure waiting to happen. If you are an outdoors lover you have found the place to be. We are located just minutes from whitewater rafting, fishing,horseback riding, zip lining, seasonal skiing, and hiking ( The Appalachian Trail). After all of the adventure we are also just a short 30 minute drive to Hot Springs, NC where you can enjoy soaking in the healing waters of the natural hot springs. For you music lovers out there Madison county is also well known for its beautiful mountain music traditions.
We hope you will come visit our beautiful mountains. We will strive to make your vacation a delightful one.

The Ramsey family are wonderful hosts. They completely made us feel at home and provided everything we needed. They are the most gracious host. The cottage is charming and sweet. We enjoyed our girls weekend and just loved it. It is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle and step back in time. We truly enjoyed the farm experience. Nice property to explore some of the nature trails too. Not far from anything you may need. We will be back!!!
We could not have been happier staying on this beautiful farm. Everything was exactly as described. Haley and Jeremy went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Farm fresh eggs and milk were provided when we arrived as well as organic coffee from a local roaster. They were gracious enough to allow us to walk around the farm and see the animals all at our own leisure. 15 minute car ride into Asheville. I would highly recommend staying here.
We had a most enjoyable time at the cottage at Quiver Full Farm! Our hosts were wonderful, the milk and eggs were delicious, and the cottage has warm and homey. We hope that we will get the opportunity to be back with the Ramsey family again. We could not want for a more homey place to stay near Asheville. Thank you Jeremy, Haley, and your wonderful family for making us feel so welcome and for a great Christmas holiday. You will never regret a visit at the cottage or getting to meet this wonderful family.
I brought my 2 girls to this lovely farm to spend Thanksgiving. My daughter, who is a student at nearby Warren Wilson College, asked if a couple of her college friends could join us. We all slept very comfortably and had a blast cooking pies and dinners together. Such a treat to have a full kitchen to use while traveling. The students brought their ukuleles and sang for hours. When we discovered that we'd forgotten our knitting needles, Haley quickly found some for us to borrow. The students had never spent time on a farm and delighted in the fresh milk and eggs, milking the cow and playing with the animals. My 10 year has asked if we can move in with the Ramsey family! To make our stay even better, we were surprised with a Thanksgiving day snow. The Ramseys quickly located a sled for us to use. I have great photos of the girls sledding past the lambs.
We ventured a few miles north to hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail, which was spectacular in the snow. I highly recommend it!
What fun! Thank you all for your hospitality.
We just finished spending three of the most peaceful, relaxing days at the Ramsey's farm cottage. It was the best vacation ever! We had planned on going into Asheville and exploring but we were having too much fun on the farm to want to leave. Haley and Jeremy are the perfect hosts and went above and beyond in every way to make our stay absolutely perfect. Our stay in the cottage would have been amazing alone with such a peaceful setting but all of the "extras" make it an experience that you will want to add to your calendar each year (we now plan to return a cope of times a year, even though we live a 8 hour drive away). These "extras" for us included getting to milk the cow (something I had hoped to get the chance to do so I was excited about, though others may be happy to just get to watch a milking), also getting to taste fresh milk, which is the best stuff ever, especially the creamy milk of a jersey cow. Also, the conversations in the yard with Haley and her husband were wonderful, you will be blessed by meeting this couple. Also my two young boys, 2 and 4 could not get enough of the puppy, older dog, sheep, horses and cows, it was like a dream come true for them, they were so happy the whole time we were there. They were beaming and we knew we now need to find a way to make them into farm boys. They also loved getting the chance to play with the Ramsey children and the age appropriate toys that Haley was so kind as to put in the cottage for the boys to play with. In the cottage itself Ramseys have thought of everything and have a well provisioned cupboards and pantry with a few staples. I recommend visiting the local/ organic store Our Daily Bread and More to stock up on meal provisions before arriving, since when you arrive you may not want to leave, even to go to the grocery store. Haley has also provided scent free laundry detergent if you need to use the wash machine that is in the cottage.
This cottage, and the lovely family who will be your hosts, is the best place to stay if you are looking to visit the Asheville area. You will be so glad you came, it's perfect in every way. We can't wait to return again in the spring!
Perfect place for our 4-night mountain mini-vacation. Haley and Jeremy are wonderful hosts, and their family is a bonus addition to an already grand place to stay. Organic eggs waiting on the kitchen table; milk directly from the source, fresh, and unprocessed (offered when we arrived, and gratefully accepted); the sound of children playing nearby. So many memories that continue to make us smile as they're recalled. The house was a cozy home for us as we ventured out and returned over the 4-plus days. Great location, close enough to the AT to offer hiking along that famous trail, along with many others, and still near enough to Asheville and environs to offer "touristy" and fine dining activities. We've advised everyone we know (except those who must have more "elegant" surroundings) to stay with the Ramsey family next time they're heading to the area. A genuine, home-spun treat. We loved every minute of our stay. Thank you, Haley, Jeremy, and the kids of the Quiver, and a nod to the horses, cows, sheep and chickens that we enjoyed as neighbors during our stay.
Our trip to Mars Hill was the very best vacation of our ten year marriage- and that might even include our week in San Diego. Just amazing. Great cottage, clean, safe, wonderful place to explore freely. Can't say enough good about it. Hope to have made friends forever!
My name is Haley. My husband and I are excited to be raising our family here at Quiver Full Farm. We have a dream of making this place a real working farm. My husband and I both currently work in the medical field. We enjoy the outdoors. We both are motivated and hard working. We love the Lord. We will strive to meet the needs of each of our guests. We will make sure to make ourselves easily accessible during your stay.
