From the moment we arrived for our long weekend, we knew that Falling Water Farm was like no other vacation rental. The serene setting, gentle pastures, winding creek and farm animals too this to the next level. The cabin was roomy, impeccably clean, comfortable and well appointed. No detail was missed by Ilse, right down to the homemade cookies at check in. What a lovely time we had! Thanks again for sharing your little slice of paradise with us!
This is really a great spot for taking a few days off. It is close to Brevard for shopping and meals. The cabin was fully stocked and very clean. We enjoyed just sitting on the porch having our coffee and watching the animals. On the nights we were there, the skies were clear and we could actually see the stars, something we forget about living in the city. I would definitely recommend this spot and will look forward to returning.
This is our second time staying at this cabin. The first visit was so nice we had to return! Great property and cabin! Horses, 2 ducks and a goose, and a great farm dog named Hiccup! The cabin is located near many waterfalls hikes, sliding rock, and town!
Ilse will bake you goodies during your stay and double checks to make sure everything is perfect for your stay! We will definitely stay here again! I fully recommend this cabin!
Our family of 4 (including 2 older teens) LOVED this place. It truly is the best mix of luxury, hospitality, and seclusion in a gorgeous setting, with a wonderful owner Ilse who is friendly, available and generous but who also allows you plenty of privacy.
Cabin: very spacious, very clean, upscale and tasteful decor in a true mountain cabin. Beds were comfortable, pillows were great, and linens fabulous (and my family is very picky/princess-and-the-pea). Morning light wasn't a problem, even in the loft area, because the high windows which aren't covered face west, and the bedrooms both face east (all bedroom windows have blinds). 2 full bathrooms were great, and the downstairs shower has what is maybe the best showerhead ever.
Amenities: cabin overly stocked with everything you'd need to cook (plenty of pans, dishware, utensils, even spices). Kuerig coffee maker along with full size stove, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher and washer dryer. Bathrooms had a thoughtful arrangement of organic products. Ilse provided quality paper towels, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, and a large array of kuerig coffees. Even 2 vases of fresh cut flowers were there upon arrival. And Ilse is a very talented baker, and we loved her suprise goodies!!
Location: the cabin is situated on an amazing piece of gated property. Horse pastures, trails, rock-lined streams, horse rings, duck pond, and a beautiful main house up the hill from the cabin. You are free to walk the property or admire it from the cabin. You're about a 10 minute drive from Brevard town and restaurants, 5 minutes from a good tubing and canoe rental place, and there are many large parks with trails and waterfalls within 30 minutes in various directions. While there is plenty to see on the large property/estate, you are on a country road and nothing else is in within close walking distance. We ate out a couple times for dinner and most lunches, but most of the time we preferred to cook or have takeout at the cabin.
Animal friends: my daughter is a horse lover, which was what drew me initially to this place. She absolutely loved hanging out near the horses and the barn when Ilse was there to supervise. The rest of us kind of prefer to see animals from a distance, but you can't help but be won over by Hiccup, the cutest puppy ever! My son, who normally is a little nervous around dogs, was happily petting and playing with Hiccup by the time we left. Hiccup isn't allowed in the cabin, but he's happy to visit you on the deck (although if you want to keep him off the deck you can close the gate). There also is this special friendship between a goose and an abnormally large mallard...those two would always be together and it was sweet to watch. In short, if you're not an animal lover you'll still love your stay, and if you are an animal lover you'll be in heaven!
