“AWESOME, MUST DO FARM ADVENTURE”

We traveled here for a long, family weekend getaway. We had not traveled to the mountains in Boone, NC but wanted to spend some time and see the area. When I began looking at vacation homes, the Old Farm House and 100 acres stood out. It offers the best of both vacation options. We could stay on the farm and learn about how it operated, the animals, as well as hike the many trails.
Our first day we met Mr. Walton and the animals and began to be part of their routine. If you have never been on a farm or around livestock it’s a nice learning experience. My son was
intrigued, these are things they don’t learn in a classroom but by actually doing and being in the environment. Mr. Walton and Ms. Betty were very patient and helpful. Mr. Walton gave us very thorough instructions, advice, and all of us learned something. The farm is a whole lot more than the animals, you can hike, enjoy the beautiful views, pick apples from the orchard, fish for trout, look at stars in the night sky, cook marshmallows and make Smores’ by a campfire. We hiked to the top of the ridge and visited the ͞Seldom Seen Waterfalls.͟ The hiking area is pristine and offered picturesque views of the forests and mountains. We also arranged for horseback riding on the farm with Mr. Walton that was a one of a kind experience. We are novice riders and Mr. Walton arranged for a couple of extra hands to ensure we enjoyed our
ride. They ensured all of the equipment was adjusted properly for the shorter riders and allowed us to become familiarized on how to control the horses in the corral before going out on the trails. Hiking the area was beautiful and from the viewing vantage point of the horse, this is a must do! It adds so much to the experience.
The local area has a lot to offer in addition to Boone. We love small NC towns and West Jefferson was that and a lot more. It’s close, just a few miles away and has multiple streets lined with small stores and as a bonus the Ashe County Cheese Factory. The factory has a cheese production viewing area with a movie on how cheese is made. Across the street is the store where you can buy the fresh creamy cheese and curds with other products they offer. Bring a cooler with cold packs because you’re going to want to bring it all home.
On our last day, Mr. Walton recommended we take the Blue Ridge Parkway as part of our drive before heading home. It was an excellent suggestion that I highly recommend as well. It was a perfect closing for our mountain farm adventure.
The only troubling part was leaving all the friends we had made but we brought home a lot of great memories.

Our family just enjoyed the most wonderful two days at The Old Farmhouse. My children loved feeding the farm animals, hiking up to the waterfall, swinging on the tree swing and biking around. We all enjoyed the horseback riding. The Old Farmhouse was clean and cozy with a spacious kitchen. I highly recommend this wonderful farm for a relaxing getaway!
