This beautiful log cabin is extremely comfortable and calming. The sound of the waterfall, the ducks milling about on the ponds, and the quiet rhythm of life on the farm is wonderful for relaxing the mind and body. Enjoy the warmth and restorative simplicity of true log cabin living while pampering the body with organic toiletries and luxurious bath and bed linens. Due to new work related travel requirements, the horses are currently boarded elsewhere until mid-summer -hopefully by July!

The space
Located just 10 miles west of Brevard, North Carolina, this beautiful log cabin is part of a private equestrian estate that is nestled in its own secluded valley. Large picture windows frame meticulously maintained pastures bordered by streams and springs that flow into a pond located directly in front of the cabin. The covered porch overlooks a waterfall that is beautiful to look at and soothing to hear, especially as one drifts off to sleep. Come morning, enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the horses graze and the ducks dabble for their breakfast on the pond. Guests are welcome to walk the property and under the owner's supervision, meet the horses.

The cabin has an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining, and living room area. This design feature takes full advantage of the floor-to-ceiling windows to offer unrestricted views and a feeling of connection with the land and life that surround the cabin. The living room is tastefully furnished with a couch and matching recliner as well as a rocking chair. In addition, there is a flat screen television with Direct TV satellite and a DVD player.

The master suite has a king size bed, private bath, and walk in closet. For those people who prefer to sleep with the windows open, the soothing sound of the water is particularly nice in this suite. Upstairs is a roomy loft area with another full bath, a queen bed, and two single beds. One of the single beds can be collapsed and moved out of the way if not needed. The cabin is air conditioned and separate temperature controls for the master bedroom, loft, and great room ensure maximum comfort during the summer months.

The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, electric range, refrigerator with an ice maker, toaster, dishwasher, blender, and coffee makers. There is also a stacked washer and dryer unit just off of the kitchen area. Additionally, there is gas grill and outside dining area located behind the cabin in its private yard. Access to the property is private, entry is via an electric gate. Guests are assigned a unique entry code prior to their arrival.

Transylvania county is the land of waterfalls and hiking, biking, cycling, and sightseeing destinations are only minutes away. For hikers and mountain bikers, Jocassee State Park is just 2.3 miles down the road and for cyclists there are miles of bike routes all through the county. Should fly fishing, tubing, or kayaking interest you, the Davidson and French Broad Rivers are minutes away. For the horse enthusiast, there are several stables in the area that offer trail rides, but reservations are a must. We are also close to DuPont State Forest, Pisgah State Forest, and Caesar's Head State Park. The Biltmore Estate, with its winery, grounds, and gardens, is 35 miles to the north.

Located a mile off of Hwy 64, we are convenient to Sapphire, Cashiers, and Highlands to the west, Brevard and Hendersonville to the east, Asheville to the north, and the upstate of South Carolina to the south. All of these locations have much to offer from great restaurants to great antiquing. The major hubs of Atlanta to the south and Charlotte to the east are both only 2.5 hours away.

Because of the numerous water feature and four legged creatures already on the property, we are unable to accommodate children or pets. But if you are looking for a place geared to the adult traveler, Falling Water Farm is for you.

Where you’ll be

Brevard, North Carolina, United States

** IMPORTANT **. Please note that the pin location, (which indicates the property as being off Hwy 276), is incorrect. The cabin is actually 10 or so miles west of Brevard off of Hwy 64, going towards Cashiers and Highlands.. As a reference point, HeadWater Outfitters is less than two miles away. This central location sits in the middle of the ‘land of waterfalls’. Traveling west, guests can visit Rainbow Falls, Turtleback Falls, Stairway Falls, Hidden Falls, Upper Whitewater Falls, and the Horsepasture River. Heading north/west on Hwy 215, some of the many waterfalls are Cathedral/Dill Falls, French Broad Falls, and Shoals Creek Falls. In addition, there is a convenient access point for the Blue Ridge Parkway. A mere 18 miles to the east, DuPont State Forest is a prime spot for hiking, biking, riding, and waterfalls. High, Triple, Hooker, and Bridle Veil Falls are some of the most popular. For movie fans, Dupont was a Hunger Games film location.
Traveling back through Brevard towards Asheville, access to the Pisgah National Forest is only 14 miles away. As with Dupont, there are a plethora of trails and beautiful waterfalls including Looking Glass Falls, Moore Cove, and of course, Sliding Rock.

I love that we are located in a rural area but are still so close to to everything. Hiking, cycling, biking, fly fishing, fishing, riding, tubing, sightseeing, shopping, and antiquing are all within a 15 to 20 minute drive or less.

Prior to moving to NC, I was a computer programmer and systems analyst in Denver, CO. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. I have spent the last 14 or so years however, as an equestrian and horse trainer... a job I enjoy very much.
