A Glorious Weekend Getaway - Farm Life is FAB Life!
When the crushing winter months in the city (I'm from NY) had me feeling down, I took a long weekend jaunt to the beautiful Horse Shoe Farm in Hendersonville, NC.
I was happy with my decision from the moment I set foot upon its 85 acres of gorgeousness. I was warmly welcomed by Jordan and Rachel who ensured that my stay would be comfortable and relaxing, starting with a 90-minute massage in their state of the art spa, which was converted from an old horse stable. The space was warm and inviting, and my massage therapist Madeline was simply superb. The massage (which was easy to book in advance) was among the best I've ever had, incorporating aroma therapy and an exfoliating facial to boot!
As a solo traveler, I had the privilege of staying in The Loft, one of the smaller residences (perfect for singles or a couple), which sits conveniently in the middle of the property. The accommodations were clean, the bed extremely comfortable (I took numerous naps), and the coffee maker and mini-fridge made for extra convenience.
Just steps away on the main lawn sits a picnic area replete with comfy chairs, a fire pit, and stunning sunset views. As the weather was perfect, I made sure to enjoy sitting outside as much as possible with a glass of wine in hand. The property is an easy drive from various activities - I twice went running on the Oklawaha Greenway, enjoyed a lovely dinner at a new French restaurant (aptly named The French Broad after the local river) on Hendersonville's Main Street, and took a day trip to Asheville which is roughly 30 minutes away depending on traffic.
Truthfully, though, I would have forgone Asheville altogether to spend more time with the farm's famed hens and a pregnant goat named Bobbie Marley (she was a hoot!). I could go on and on, but suffice it to say the Horse Shoe Farm is a perfect destination for travelers of all kinds, whether you're looking for an event/retreat space, or just looking to get away for a few days and find some peace of mind.
Speaking of peace of mind, there is no better place than the Sanctuary to practice some morning yoga... Namaste and enjoy your stay!
We chose The Horse Shoe Farm for our office retreat. Everything was perfect! We all felt relaxed, well fed, like we had privacy and we were well taken care of. Jordan and his team were so thoughtful and generous throughout our stay. We really appreciated their attention to detail and willingness to accommodate our wishes through the whole experience. Our rooms were clean and quiet and we enjoyed the game room, fireplace, long dinner table and beautiful views. We would not hesitate to recommend The Horse Shoe Farm!
Perfect, Relaxing Family Vacation
We had the most incredible stay at Horseshoe Farm! My husband and I were traveling with our toddler. We stayed in a two bedroom home equipped with a crib. The home was beautifully renovated with top-of-the-line bedding. We spent most of the time on the property - exploring the immaculate grounds, visiting the animals, and playing in the kids clubhouse. We enjoyed massages at the incredible spa which was previously horse stables. If you feel like venturing out, the town of Hendersonville is cute with great restaurants and shops. Overall, the weekend was relaxing and perfect. Jordan was an exceptional host and we can't wait to visit again!
My Family & I vacationed at the Horse Shoe Farm last summer and cannot wait to return this year !! The cottages are so beautiful and clean . Every detail has been thought of to provide comfort and luxury . The land and the views are spectacular! The food is fabulous ...the yoga studio is amazing & I had the best massage ever !
It was the most relaxing vacation imaginable ! We all loved this Farm !
Magical special healing Retreat near Asheville
This is an incredible place where I lead a Yoga Retreat and everyone raved about it.
The rooms are spectacular very clean and bright. The food was awesome and above all Jordan and John Turchin who run and own The Horse Shoe Farm are so kind and loving and fun.
Retreat from the busy life to a peaceful...
My wife and I really loved this experience. It was a perfect get-away from the busy streets to a peaceful stay with a view of the mountains in the distance. It was easy to get to, well-manicured, and accommodations were quaint and cute. We'll be back!
Perfect place of retreat for our group!
I stayed there recently with a group of 30 or so and the accommodations and setup were great. It was the perfect place for us - nice rooms and a central place for eating and meeting. The staff was great and always available to help meet our needs.
Perfectly transcendent and sublime!
As an Asheville resident, I have several world class spa choices to visit and enjoy. I can honestly say when it comes to a 5-star experience be it relaxing, staying over night, dining, or indulging in spa treatments you will find no better.
The owners and staff are extremely welcoming and professional, and provide a service that is second to none. The accommodations were lush and plush, in a way I've not seen in other hotels and/or inns in the area, definitely a cut above!. The Stable Spa features stunning style and refined decor, with relaxing treatment rooms in a unique setting I found truly enchanting. Not only did I feel at home the first time I visited, I've since returned with friends and family who have all enjoyed the same, exclusive experience.
The owners continue to make every visit customized to each of our guests own, individual experience desires. All of us, including those who had traveled from abroad, are in agreement that Horse Shoe Farm is a breath of fresh air and we're looking forward to returning. Well done to all!
Beautiful mountain retreat
Horse Shoe Farm exceeded expectation. The setting was beautiful, the accommodations were beautifully equipped and decorated, and the staff was helpful and friendly. We loved the Silo and the shared spaces for eating, and playing games. I'd highly recommend this, especially for a group trip.
Great Family Retreat
My family and I were looking for a Family retreat in western North Carolina. This was the perfect spot. Close to so many things but still far enough away to focus on family and fellowship without interruption. With three children and grandparents, everyone found interesting things to do. From painting, to hiking, to an array of sports equipment ( fishing poles, bicycles, movie projector, yoga facility). Don’t miss the sun going down from the top of the silo. We look forward to our next adventure.
Seriously the BEST!!
Every year we have a 4 day retreat with 25-30 people and of all the places we've stayed, The Horse Shoe Farm is the absolute best. Jordan was amazing to communicate with ahead of time- our experience and rest was his top priority. The whole staff was friendly and truly exceptional.
Once we arrived the farm was BEYOND what the pictures show. Each house was so unique and had it's own personality, was clean and so comfortable. We never wanted to leave the property. We enjoyed reading by the outdoor fire pit, playing games in the Farmhouse, and enjoying family style meals in the Silo.
I am scheming up ways to get back soon whether with family, friends, or another work retreat!
What a fantastic place, great memories, amazing...
By far the best property “farm” vacation location in Western NC/ “the mountains”. If you want a great place to relax with family and friends while making life long memories, this place offers that and then some.
You and your family and friends will be talking about the farm, your experiences and memories the following year and so on. Situated on 85 acres, riverfront on the French Broad River, you can kayak down the same river as the Biltmore, fish like a true outdoorsman and enjoy the picture perfect Mountain View’s and sunsets over Mt. Pisgah, and the Appalachian mountains. Also great times around the fire pit at night over looking these great views.
Bar none the newest, most elegant outdoor experience one or one’s family can enjoy this year in the mountains and Western NC. Also enjoy the great spa, farm to table menu, and luxury experience while enjoying what nature has to offer.
We had the best time on the farm - spa, yoga, games, and bonfires! It was so nice to disconnect and relax with family. The property is beautiful and clean, and very chic interiors.
Went there with my whole family during the summer (19 of us), and we had an amazing time. There are many things to do around the farm, but even if you just stay there all the time during your stay its 100% worth it!!! Beautiful accomodations, and amazing sunsets.
