Romance, Ambiance and Adventure
Romance, ambiance and adventure await you when you book a vacation at Lantern Farm. This cozy farmhouse offers peace and quiet as well as a great location, just minutes off of the Blue Ridge Parkway, one of the most scenic drives in the U.S.
The small, two-level farmhouse is located on a quintessential, multi-acre Ashe County pumpkin and Christmas tree farm, providing the serenity and pastoral views you’ve been dreaming of. On the lower level of the home you’ll find the bedroom with a comfy king-size bed and a big flat-screen TV, where you’ll enjoy relaxing with your loved one. This level also has a laundry area for your convenience, and its own patio. Upstairs you’ll find the sitting area, kitchen and a full bath with a walk-in shower. The wide covered porch on this level is perfect for outdoor dining and unwinding. The lovely view from the porch includes a pond that offers catch and release fishing, as well as a charming water feature.
Although small, the home’s kitchen is well-equipped, with stainless appliances and the utensils you’ll need for easy dinners at home. When you feel like going out to eat, the Park Vista Restaurant and Mountain Aire Seafood are both just minutes away.
Lantern Farm is a true working farm, so you’ll have the opportunity to see crops in progress and perhaps even watch farmers at work. Note that the farm also contains an additional larger rental home, currently occupied by long-term renters.
