About The Owner

Joseph Sabbag lives next door at 40 Moores Pond and is learning to pull weeds. He loves to have guests at our guesthouse from all over the world. We look forward to meeting you.

The Owner purchased this guest house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Fairview

The mountains of Western North Carolina, near Asheville, are one of most beautiful and relaxing places in the world, if you exclude pulling weeds.

What makes this guest house unique

The views from the 50+ acre property and lake are wonderful.

Serenity and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place is wonderful. Absolute serenity. The house is clean with an updated and fully stocked kitchen. We had a lovely conversation with Chuck, one of the owners, and really enjoyed it.Make sure you say hello to the two little Nigerian dwarf goats that roam the property. Truly a great place to spend a long weekend.

Dog Peoples Paradise- mountain farm

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a secluded Mountain house for our vacation with our 3 large dogs and thats exactly what we got. This 2 BR house is on a mountainside with 50 acres surrounding it,a large pond complete with Canadian geese and Mallard ducks. My dogs loved the entire experience as we did. Close to Ashville without the high cost-very reasonable rates. A great value.Must stay for dog people. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I stayed at the guest house for 5 days, and it was PERFECT. We had so much hiking and a few other day trips planned, but we were so pleased with the house, and impressed by the views that we ended up staying home on the back patio to relax and listen to the birds most days of our visit.

The drive up to the property is serene, meandering, and the azaleas that line the driveway were in full bloom (your very own mini-Biltmore garden). Inside the house itself, pretty much everything has been updated. There's new appliances, flooring, counters, furniture (some is vintage/antique and so cute). This was by far the best, and most thoughtfully renovated vacation property I have ever seen. As an interior designer I tend to kind of "pick apart" rentals, but I had nothing critical to say about this place (husband got a real kick out of my speechlessness). We were so comfortable and "at-home" at Moore's pond, and we absolutely can't wait to visit again!

Terrific place to stay outside of Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this rental! It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. As long as you have a car, it is very conveniently located for exploring Asheville. It is in a more rural area with beautiful grounds and views. Due to our busy schedules and the poor weather, we unfortunately weren't able to explore the property, but we hope to be back again!
