Great Location – In the Country yet so close to Asheville

Located in the rural community of Fairview, North Carolina, Cloud 9 is a 15 minute trip from downtown Asheville going southeast. Just 2 miles from the Scenic “Drover’s Road”.

Highway 74A East makes grocery stores, restaurants and health food stores easy to get to in 5 minutes.

Biltmore Estate and the Grove Park Inn are just 15 minutes away. The NC Arboretum, and Asheville Regional Airport is an easy 22 minutes away. Black Mountain and Chimney Rock Park are 25 minutes away.

Cloud 9 Farm consists of a valley farm divided by the public road, with a half-mile private driveway with an entrance gate. Our secluded rentals anchor the mountain top: Cloud 9 Retreat, Heavenly Hideaway Cabin, Silver Lining Cabin, and Sawyer’s Cabin.

And, no… you don’t need 4 wheel drive to get here. Our driveway is maintained and a safe slope to traverse in any vehicle. At 2400 feet elevation there are still mountains to look up to, but the long-range view of another valley makes you appreciate NC’s nickname, “Land of the Sky”.

Easy to find
