Nestled in the High Country of the North Carolina mountains of Valle Crucis lies a hidden treasure of relaxation and rejuvenation called Mast Farm Inn. The Inn is not just any ordinary Inn. The Inn is a bread and breakfast situated on the J.B. Mast Farm that dates back to 1810 complete with historical buildings developed into 15 rooms, cottages and cabins resulting in recently being inducted into Historic Hotels of America which is made up of 32 charter members founded in 1989 by the National Trust For Historic Preservation.
The day before July 4 on July 3, I had the sincere pleasure of visiting and experiencing The Mast Farm Inn with my parents by staying in the 2 story Granary Cottage which is the oldest restored house on the property encompassing the original granary wood featuring 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a loft, a great room, full kitchen and deck with picnic table.
Upon walking inside the Granary Cottage, we were greeted with a customized card, fresh home baked cookies, fresh picked flowers and water assembled on the dining room table on the left side and the kitchen on the right side complete with flat top stove, coffee pot, coffee, small wood cabinets, microwave and refridgerator.
Once inside, we began to explore our home away from home by checking out the sitting room, master bedroom with whirlpool tub and additional bedroom all while sounds of peaceful and tranquil music echoed throughout the cottage.
In addition to checking out the bedrooms the loft remained for us to experience with a magnificent view of the sitting area.
While experiencing the Granary Cottage a warm country welcome and home away from home feel was felt. Not only did the bedrooms, kitchen, sitting room and loft help create the feel but accents throughout enhanced the feeling and country effect.
Not only did we feel the warm welcome inside but the outdoors and property of the farm created quite a unique surrounding to enjoy. Views, gardens, other cottages and buildings all created the perfect moment for relaxation and tranquility as we experienced the property.
After a relaxing and peaceful walk through The Mast Farm Inn property, darkness began to take over which meant it was time to head to bed and then awake to a delicious gourmet style breakfast which is included in your stay and located inside the Inn. Once waking up the next morning, my parents and I walked over to the Inn to enjoy the breakfast and found even more beauty around the Inn.
After enjoying fresh fruit, bacon, waffles with homemade fig syrup for breakfast it was time to depart the Inn resulting in the parents and I left astounded about our experience at The Mast Farm Inn. The overall experience was one we did not want to leave. From all historical aspects of the property, the perfect customer service, the breathtaking views, landscape and freshly grown gardens, we realized that The Mast Farm Inn truly defines why our North Carolina mountains are unique and a must see from anyone across the globe. Thank you Henri, Kyra and Lorraine alone with the other staff for creating the perfect moment for me and my parents.
