Welcome to Briar Rose Farm!
Rated one of the best farm stays in North Carolina by SOUTHERN LIVING magazine 2011!
We offer a choice of three cabins and a fully furnished home while providing a farm experience with friendly
farm animals, a creek, hot tubs, fire pits and hiking trails for those wanting to explore our 260 acres.  We also

Located 30 miles northwest of Asheville, North Carolina, near the
Appalachian Trail town of Hot Springs, in the heart of the southern
Appalachian Mountains,
Briar Rose Farm is an old mountain farm
with rolling hills, steep slopes, and green pastures divided by a
creek that comes tumbling down the mountain.

A true farm experience is what we offer to our guests.
You will enjoy our cool evenings, sunny days, blue skies, and the
choice of adventures just outside your cabin door.  Or maybe you
will come to just soak up the peaceful quiet of this rural setting.
The farm a good place to be as active or as lazy as you wish.                    
A trip to Briar Rose Farm  provides far more than just a place to sleep!

Spring has finally arrived in the mountains!  One of the nicest and prettiest times of the year with
green, green grass, lots of flowering trees,  soft warm breezes, and baby animals.

Nightly or weekly, our cabins offer the opportunity to enjoy the numerous outdoor activities in the area or just
stay "home" by the fireplace or in the hot tub under the stars. It is a great place for families with kids, couples,
and honeymooners. Enjoy a campfire by the creek,  hike right from your cabin door, visit with our cows and
goats, collect eggs from the chickens and listen to our roosters welcoming the morning sun as it lights up your
front porch. What a perfect way to begin your days in the mountains!
