Just opened is Sawyer’s Cabin located 15 minutes Southeast of Asheville. We are proud to present it as a custom built work of carpentry art with 7 different species of wood on the interior.

84 years ago the Cecils opened the Biltmore Estate to the public for the first time (March 15, 1930). The city of Asheville, requested it (probably gave them a huge tax break) and hoped to revitalize the Depression-era economy with tourism and to generate funds to maintain the estate. Cloud 9 – Vacation Cabin & Rentals is 10.77 miles away and the reason so [ MORE » ]
To get those fat chickens to dare take a step out of the coop when there is snow on the ground, you have to shovel out a spot so they can at least see a little brown.

Colors and feelings…doesn’t bright grass green and daffodil yellow just make you feel fresh, alive, and healthy? Of course! Coming to the mountains SHOULD make you feel like that all year long.

Knowing that they would soon be covered with a culvert, a rescue plan immediately took shape. Grab the vacation [ MORE » ]

I love how the snow defines the landsacape. This is from the “big” snow on Sunday. We haven’t gotten this kind of snow in 4 or 5 years so, forget about the inconvenience, just enjoy it. P.S. – All roads are clear so you can get to Cloud 9, no problem.
It was quite a snow we had yesterday, making everything so beautiful on Cloud 9 Farm here on the southern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains. About 5 inches. Too bad you’re not on vacation and getting snowed in! Here are the chicken girls trying to decide whether to come out of the coop or not. It was so funny watching them cautiously looking [ MORE » ]
I love this time of year, when the leaves are off the trees and you can see a true view at Heavenly Hideaway cabin. In the summer you are completely secluded by forest but now you can see the distant mountains (and no houses). Very quiet! And if you were in the hot tub tonight…oooo, la, la…a full moon that would cast that second-hand [ MORE » ]
