The Homeplace

Back |

A connection with nature and a sense of rural family tradition are reflected in the 1650 square foot 'Homeplace', which is located on a state designated 'Century Farm' just 2 miles down Welcome Valley Road from our Village. Nestled among mature trees and native plants, two decks are available for your outdoor enjoyment in the park-like setting. The house has a living room, dining room, breakfast area, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a den. Equipped with a grill and picnic table, the backyard also features a wildflower garden adjoing the surrounding woodland.

The master bedroom suite with a queen-sized bed and private bath is separated from the other two bedrooms by the living areas of the house. A country kitchen with a double oven, range-top island, refrigerator with an ice maker, and dishwasher invites guests to cook their own meals. For those who would prefer to dine out, several small restaurants are located nearby. The living room features oak paneling and a fireplace for guests to enjoy during the cooler months. The house has WiFi, a 32" Samsung Flat screenTV with Comcast cable service, and DVD player in the den. A small sleeper-sofa converts to a 3/4 bed, which would comfortably sleep one person. Two bedrooms, both lit by chandeliers, are located on the east end of the house. The pine-paneled bedroom has a full size bed while the wallpapered bedroom features a queen-sized bed. A full-size bath with a shower and tub serves these bedrooms.

“We really enjoyed our stay here at The Homeplace! This property is so charming and we sure did feel at home. We were here celebrating the wedding of my nephew. We were so impressed with how fully equipped the kitchen was. We cooked quite a bit while we were here. My nephews used the campfire pit and loved it. Thank you for sharing your cozy home with us. We hope to be back next summer.”Stowe, NC, October 2015
