Update January 2022: Barkwells has sold to new owners! Please see our blog post about the transition by clicking here.
Michael and Ellen are retiring, which opens the opportunity for someone drawn to these special places to enjoy and improve their beautiful properties. Woody Farm in Pisgah Forest (near Brevard) and/or Mills River(near Asheville) are available for purchase. It’s been 15 years, so this doesn’t happen very often! See the Follow Your Dream blog for info on Mills River Barkwells. Here is your chance to discover the best life that’s waiting for you…
Take morning walks to feed the fish
Tend the gardens, with some help
Enjoy the warmth of an historic home
And of course play with dogs
If you long for a “Barkwells lifestyle”, this quiet, private haven with two years of vacation rental income history can be yours to create and live your best life – as a residence with rental income from two cottages, as a retreat, or perhaps to establish a B&B. It is time for us to progress to full retirement, and we are looking for the next steward of this gracious property to embrace its history and create its future.
