Half-Mile Farm


About Half-Mile Farm

Don't let the name fool you. There is nothing farm-like about this picture book country inn except for maybe the farmhouse. All kidding aside, Half-Mile Farm is an adults-only luxury boutique hotel that beckons guests with beautifully decorated country suites and rustic-luxe cabins that offer views of the glistening lake and rolling mountains. While you may be enticed to explore open meadows, lush woods and soothing streams on the 14-acre property, you may just find yourself spoiled by the bucolic grounds surrounding the main house. Who says you can't sit on the porch or disappear into a good book underneath the grape arbor?

What We Love

It's often the little things that make or break a stay: oversized fireplaces, evening cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, sumptuous bedding, three-course gourmet breakfasts, not to mention Southern hospitality. Oh, and we can't forget the dramatic countryscape overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, hiking to stunning waterfalls, kayaking around a private lake. 



Half-Mile Farm has channeled the healing powers of the Blue Ridge Mountains into an indulgent spa experience in its Serenity Suite treatment room. The soothing skin treatments and restorative massage therapies open up energy channels and rejuvenate the senses using herbs and botanicals sourced from around the world and from the farm’s own garden.




Besides the on-site amenities, guests can meander along the woodlands for hiking, biking, ziplining and horseback riding as well as discover the lake and rivers for fishing, canoeing, stand-up paddleboarding and whitewater rafting.

Guests also have exclusive access to the Old Edwards Club where they can play a round of golf or a game of tennis surrounded by the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.


Culinary Highlights

Dining is an intimate affair at Half-Mile Farm. Mouthwatering farm-to-table cuisine starts each day with a hearty breakfast from local ingredients and produce from the on-site organic gardens. Every afternoon guests come together for appetizers in the main house. And throughout the day guests can celebrate with light bites and drinks at the J. Henry Farmhouse Tavern. Off-property privileges extend to restaurants that showcase the seasonal foods and local fare of North Carolina.
