We purchased the land in 2009 and started with a small scale dairy farm. We spent 2010 building our farmhouse. The cabin was built in 2013 and has been used as a guesthouse since then. We've recently moved back with our family and have been trying to develop hazelnuts, chestnuts, and other edible landscaping.
Stay in our 320 sq. ft. two-floor cabin with excellent views of the highest peaks in the Appalachian Mtns. The cabin is on a 20 acre permaculture...
Fantastic place to stay if you need shelter from the elements. The host was super friendly and had a fire going in the wood burning stove before we even got there (it was zero degrees out)! I would recommend studying the location before you drove there as it was a little difficult to find. Just read the directions and follow the signs as instructed! I would absolutely stay here again!
Raven Ridge was a delightful stay. It's on an off-the-beaten path small farm up the hill from a young family's homestead. They are welcoming yet respectful of your stay. The cabin itself is spacious for such a small footprint and a great way to slow down with a cast iron wood burning cook stove, great front porch settings, and a lofted bed.
The hosts gladly point to some lovely walks that loop around the area below some cliffs that overhang the French Broad river.
You are also within an hour of the Appalachians and 20 minutes from Asheville despite feeling much more remote.
If you need a rustic escape minus the setup of full on camping this is a great way to go.
