Walking trails are also located nearby.

To add to the unique charm of the home, we have updated the mattresses, but kept the original iron beds and many other pieces of the history that have made this home so special. We have tried to renovate in a way that adds modern conveniences and comforts with old time charm. The home, complete with a large kitchen and a spacious dining room that will seat up to 10 people, is a perfect place for an old fashioned family gathering.

About Julie Burnette

Barbara O'Kelley Burnette & Dan O'Kelley

Julie Burnette purchased this farmhouse in 1900

Why Julie Burnette chose Candler

This home belonged to our Grandparents Frank and Texie O'Kelley. It has been in our family for over 100 years. We wanted to be able to share it and let others enjoy a little bit of history.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are very convenient to Asheville & The Blue Ridge Parkway. Easy to access but still far enough out to get away from it all. 16 acres of pasture to roam around in.

I wish we stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what an amazing, whimsical farmhouse! It's location is perfect. Close enough to modern conveniences that running to the store isn't an ordeal, yet far enough away that you feel like you're in a remote, peaceful place. Between the decor, the many rocking chairs strewn across the front porch, and the flowers and shrubbery surrounding, this place is truly magical and feels so welcoming. Our kids loved the upstairs/loft area. It was almost like a treehouse for them. Seeing horses every morning was a fun treat that we don't get at home. The house was stocked with many convenient items as well. We left to go to the beach for a night and really, really wish we had just stayed here! I highly recommend this place to couples, families, and friends alike. It's close to a lot of great sights and hiking adventures, breweries, Asheville, etc. We will definitely be back. Thank you, Julie!

Perfect Quaint Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

As soon as I pulled into the driveway of the cabin, I felt right at home. The amenities plus the easy access to both the interstate and the Blue Ridge Parkway made this a perfect getaway for a hiking weekend with my family. The cabin's quirky and quaint decor ensures a surprise around every corner! The bedrooms were cozy and the bathroom and kitchen were clean and tidy. I'll absolutely be visiting again!
