My stay at Goodyacre Farm was absolutely wonderful. The place is gorgeous - the mountain views, the house, the landscaping, even the farm animals were impossibly cute. And Nicole and her family were so friendly, so cool, we felt at home from the moment we arrived. My 2 little boys loved it and practically refused to leave. The guest space/studio is spacious, the sofa and beds were super comfy, the local coffee in the kitchen was delicious, and I'm still squeezing the last drops out of our little bottles of fantastic local artisanal soap. Plus Nicole immediately took of anything we needed. I can't say enough good things about Goodyacre Farm - just book it!!!
Goodyacre Farm is even more amazing than the pictures make it look. It is a magical place and you *must* stay there! Though it has a Waynesville address, it's just outside of Canton, close to Pisgah and Asheville. Hosts Joe and Nicole were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Their story is pure serendipity. The farm animals are very accessible and amiable and the grounds are so lovely -- rolling hills all around. Our family felt very safe and comfortable here; it was the cherry on top of another great vacation in Western NC. We'd love to visit Goodyacre again someday!
I loved staying at Goodyacre farm! It was soooo cute! This was my first Air BnB stay and it set the standard! The suite was beautiful. I walked in to jazz playing, essential oil fragrance, a welcome note and hand made soap, lotion and local coffee. The place was very neat and tidy (something very important to me:) The decor was eclectic, artistic and fun, which made the environment really relaxing. I felt immediately at ease. I came in from a long day of exploring in Asheville and Nicole and Joe greeted me, showed me around and welcomed me to check out the farm and then let me have my privacy. I saw from other reviews that families enjoyed the farm, but I would say this is also great for solo travelers and particularly solo women travelers. I felt very safe and secure, plus it was great that they were able to greet me so I could talk to them, but also I could enjoy the space at my own comfort. Checking out the farm and the VIEWS the next morning was a special treat. This was a great choice and I plan to come back!
Nicole and Joe have created a great destination for either a couples or family-friendly venue. My daughter and granddaughter we're ecstatic the entire time, and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves watching them interact with all the farm animals. It was great to also help with the "chores" that are needed to be done with the farm life. The "entire place" category is an understatement. Our family cannot recommend their place enough, and we promised them we would be back. They were not only great hosts, but now new friends!
Our stay at GoodyAcre Farm was lovely. The studio is lovely and modern, the bathroom shower had amazing water pressure for being on a farm. Our host left us wonderful local soap, shampoo/conditioner and body lotion. There was fresh ground local coffee and a brand new container of creamer in the fridge. I didn't need a thing. My bed was super comfortable and I slept like a baby. I would definitely recommend this place for a weekend get away or longer if you have the time to explore the area. We ate at several good local restaurants and wished we could have stayed longer. I would come back in a heartbeat!
Goodyacre Farm was a dream! Just about 35 minutes from Asheville, the property is gorgeous and the views of the mountains are breathtaking. The location is only about 10 minutes from Canton where you'll find some great shops and restaurants and a grocery and pharmacy if you need them. The host is as sweet as can be, and her love for her farm and her animals is contagious. The "studio suite" is charmingly decorated, spacious, and extremely clean and comfortable. The fire pit with hanging lights right outside our door was so inviting. We were just too tired to try it this time around! My entire family fell in love with Goodyacre farm. We can't wait to visit for longer next time!
