Basement apartment (owners live upstairs) situated on 23 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Sparta, NC. It is an outdoor lovers paradise. Did we mention it's a Christmas tree farm? Great for families or those who simply want to get away. Sit out by the fire pit and star gaze without any light pollution. Take a pole and some tackle to the pond or river. Hang out and read under the oak tree. Mainly, relax.
Several places to access the Blue Ridge Parkway within 10 minutes drive from the house.
Around 1700 sf basement apartment with 4 bedrooms and 1 bath. There is a full kitchen, cozy living room with wood stove (for those who like to rough it) and gas fireplace (for those who prefer convenience) and comfy beds. The home is only part of what makes this place special, though. There is a working Christmas Tree farm on the property. You'll most likely be greeted by the dogs (Copper and Maya), chickens, and the alpacas, Tagg and Tilly. Guests also have access (via short, moderately stressful hike) to the pond and dock as well as the Little River which bends around the backside of the property. It's great for fishing and also serves as a nice swimming hole. You'll need a valid NC fishing license for the river, but not the pond. That license can be obtained in town.
Because of the constant projects and working nature of the farm, plus kids, let me quote a fellow airbnb host, "The grounds are not always "Martha Stewart"-manicured, but our commitment to you is a clean and comfortable home-away-from-home."
It's noted again in the "house rules" but we want to make sure everyone knows before booking that we live upstairs along with our 2 and 5 year old boys. Previous guests have likened it to apartment living as far as overhead sound. We'll make EVERY attempt to keep our noise to a minimum.

We're about a 5 minute drive from Sparta where there is plenty of great food to be had and quaint shops to visit.
- Hosts live upstairs with their 2 young boys. We make every attempt to keep our noise to a minimum but if you have to have absolute silence to relax, we might not be for you.
- We have 23 acres with animals, Christmas trees, a fishing pond and Little River frontage. Guests are welcome to enjoy the property, we just ask that you treat it as if it were your own. Not leaving the property as you found it could result in a withholding of your security deposit.
Born in Maryland, raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC. I've also spent time living in VA and ID. Love the outdoors - hunting and fishing are some of my favorite past times along with spending time with my wife and our 2 young boys. We love to travel - especially to small towns that exhibit that small town charm. It's what we grew up with, it's what we love. We do occasionally have to venture to the "big city" though for things like Indian food and sushi. At the end of the day, we just can't stay away from these beautiful mountains.
