About the Owner

A California native who fell in love with Asheville a couple of years ago...it's like Santa Cruz in the mountains. The music, the area, and the people make Asheville a wonderful place!

Love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely love Fred's Farm. We think it should be renamed Bunny Hill though because of the number of bunnies we saw. We routinely saw 14 turkeys and even a bear one evening. We were on the lookout for George the Groundhog but had no luck spotting him. The home is very clean and well appointed. We loved cooking in the very spacious kitchen and read many of the 50 or so cookbooks in the house. It is also relatively convenient to downtown Asheville and all that this fantastic city has to offer. After our trip we even looked to see if it was available for Thanksgiving but someone beat us to it. I would most definitely stay at the farm again on our next trip to Asheville. We had lovely weather and we really did not want to leave.

Lovely home, felt rustic but very comfortable. Lovely location and we had a lovely time in Asheville, despite the chilly April weather. Would definitely return to Fred's Farm. Our dog loved it too.

We really enjoyed staying at Fred's Farm over March break. The house was perfect for my husband and myself, our daughter and dog. Nicely decorated, new and clean with great bathrooms and kitchen. Large selection of videos to watch in the evening and wonderful cookbooks to look through. The house was an easy drive to downtown and all of the fun activities Asheville has to offer. Great house that we recommend highly!

Perfect Thanksgiving at Fred's Farm in Asheville, NC

Perfect Thanksgiving at Fred's Farm in Asheville, NC
  • 5 of 5
We had a brilliant time staying at Fred's Farm over Thanksgiving. We were there seven nights and every single one of them was perfect. Weather was freaky...freezing, snow, rain and then a warm up. The heater in the house is crazy good. All of this contributed to really enjoying our time in Asheville and at the house. Everything is perfect really and comes exactly as described. We fell in love with Asheville and plan on moving there someday. Soon, we hope!

Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!!!

Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!!!
  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for nearly six weeks and can speak with some authority when I say this house is fabulous. It blends the look and feel of a country farm house with a modern aesthetic. Photos of the kitchen don't do it justice as its a gourmet cooks dream. A chef could be very happy here and if you're not one there are over sixty of the best cook books ever written in the bookcase. The bedrooms are huge with a warm and cozy feel and outstanding mattresses. I have a bad back and have never slept so well. There just isn't anything you would want that this house does not provide...from a Smart plasma tv to an extensive dvd collection to take care of you on a rainy day and if you want to do a little housekeeping there's a Dyson vacuum and huge Whirlpool washer & dryer . The location is ideal as you are minutes away from downtown Asheville or the Parkway in a wonderful farm like setting that just feels like home the moment you set foot in the house. I have three shih tzu dogs who had the best time running around the acre property. But the best testimonial I can offer is that I don't want to leave and would buy it in a heart beat if it ever comes up for sale!!! This house is a treasure and I can't wait to return.

Asheville Disappointment

  • 2 of 5
Fred's Farm has lots of potential! It is in a terrific location - close to downtown Asheville and to the Blue Ridge Parkway! Kitchen and bathroom upgrades are well done. Wood burning fireplace was especially enjoyable. The addition of comfortable living room furniture, comfortable kitchen stools, good lighting in living room and bedrooms, and chairs/benches and/or luggage racks in bedrooms would have made our visit what we had hoped it would be. It is especially distressing that there is no cell service in this rental and we had to leave to make calls - a serious safety issue. Website does not mention this important feature!!! We'll return to Asheville for sure, but not to Fred's Farm.

Owner's Response: We realize that not everyone will love everything that we have to offer here at Fred's Farm. With that stated we do everything to make sure our vacationers feel at home and comfortable during their stay with us.
From the beginning of this transaction there were difficulties in getting the rental agreement signed to ending with a phone call that a deck chair had been broken and left out on the lawn the entire time of the visit. Regarding the Furniture, the sofa and chairs are handmade and extremely comfortable, with both reading chairs having reading lamps next to them along with overhead light and natural light from numerous windows. Both bedrooms have several lamps for plenty of lighting. As for the stools in the kitchen, these are more than comfortable and are clearly photographed on the VRBO site. Finally, it is very clearly stated on the VRBO site that there is limited cell service. Verizon has no problem working there but AT&T does. In the Mountains cell service varies greatly. We pride ourselves in the prior reviews that we have received. We would recommend to anyone renting a VRBO to read the Listing information thoroughly before choosing their next rental. Thank you Fred's Farm

Location

From the Owner

Fred's Farm has been renovated with love to bring the best of the new, while keeping the charm or the old. Here is a place to relax after work, or to vacation away from everything at home. Want to try and make something new in the kitchen? There's a collection of all types of cookbooks, and the equipment needed to make something different. Tranquility can be had sitting down by the creek, or having a glass of wine on the porch. With Wi-fi throughout the house, you're still able to check the emails or download something from Netflix.

Amenities

From the Owner

When I first walked into the house, it was the living room that drew me in. The original fireplace mantle and wainscoting throughout the room, along with the many large windows made me realize I'd found the perfect place to read a book or listen to music. Both bathrooms provide excellent tubs to soak in. The beds are very comfortable, and you'll always hear birds in the morning.
