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.

De ruimte

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 had a great stay and had plenty of room. We got in after dark and the GPS was a bit confused, but Joel talked us in and made us feel at home. Definitely recommend.

We loved our stay at Joel’s place, it was absolutely perfect for us and our family. It was clean, and big and spacious. They even made us homemade cranberry bread! Would definitely stay again!

The River Hill Retreat is a wonderful little find... beautiful view, fun alpacas (and chickens, ducks, and a couple of happy dogs), neat and clean place to stay. Also very close to downtown Sparta and not far from Stone Mountain State Park in Wilkes County. Will definitely return to this sweet gem!

What an amazing place. The house is comfortable and served our family of 5 well. The children enjoyed the farm animals (chickens, dogs, ducks, even alpaccas) a lot. In the morning we were greeted by the two alpaccas and the dog. Our hosts left us some farm fresh eggs and we had a wonderful breakfast before we continued on our trip. Definitely a unique experience and we know we will be back soon.

This was such an awesome place to stay! We planned a somewhat last minute trip for our anniversary and had a hard time finding decent places. We were super lucky to have found this gem. Getting to meet all the animals was a really awesome bonus. They left us fresh eggs which we cooked up in the morning and a couple extra goodies. We're so glad to have found this place and to meet this kind family!

Alpaccas. Chickens. Ducks. Christmas trees and cattle. As you check into this property; you will definitely feel a connection to Mother Nature. Super hospitable and accommodating; our hosts had pastries and farm fresh eggs ready for us. This is a 4 bedroom area that leads out to their Christmas tree farm. A trail winds down to a trout stocked stream. Beautiful views and incredible scenery. There are children upstairs so you will hear the pitter patter of tiny feet; however- why are you inside anyway? This is God's backyard. Go enjoy.

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.
