Location Details

While staying at 'Emerald Gate Farm,' you'll get to know the resident guide who will show you the variety of activities to partake in! See if the catfish or bluegills are biting when you fish in the pond, harvest fresh eggs from the chicken coop, or have a picnic near the orchards.

If you want to cool off, go for a swim in one of the nearby water holes or book a whitewater rafting trip with Smoky Mountain River Adventures.

Get up close to the towering trees in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. 'Emerald Gate Farm' borders this natural wonder, and offers hiking trails that begin from the neighboring Cataloochee area. Also, an Elk herd can be seen everyday in Cataloochee Valley and often on the road to this farm.

Upon a fresh snowfall, skiers will flock to Cataloochee Ski Area located 30 minutes away from this property. On the way back to the farm, stop in the Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum to view rare models and related exhibits!

  • We love Emerald Gate Farm!


    We had such an enjoyable stay at Emerald Gate Farm. John is such a kind and sharing host that readily gave us tours around his property. We really enjoyed talking with him. We loved watching the chickens (and eating their fresh eggs!), guineafowl, and ducks. The pig enjoyed our fruit and veggie scraps. Polly and Clyde the Pyrenees pups are the sweetest. We enjoyed cozying up by the gas fireplace, playing games at the large kitchen table, and relaxing on the wrap around porch. Waynesville is a beautiful town just up the road (don’t miss Orchard Coffee voted NC’s #1 coffee (their honey cinnamon latte is to die for). Beer and food at nearby Boojum Brewery was also delicious (they have a full menu). Asheville is just 26 miles up I 40, a close drive as well and we enjoyed a day in GSMNP in the other direction. Took our dogs for a stroll around Lake Junaluska one morning which was a scenic and well paved loop through a neighborhood of neat homes. We will definitely be back to John’s farm at Emerald Gate.

    John is a wonderful host/owner! I have never experienced a more gracious and accommodating host. If you have children, this is the place to stay! John was there to meet and assist with check-in and always available to answer questions and meet our needs. We will definitely return!

    Overall, the stay was great. The house is spacious and fit what we needed for our group. It’s listed as handicap accessible and is a great option compared to most but some things to consider for those that need it: the wheelchair ramp in the back is great but has no lights at night, so plan your arrival if this matters-it’s a bit steep, much easier for wheelchairs than walkers. The master bathroom is a stand up shower with rails! -so helpful for my mom but none of the toilets are handicap accessible. The secondary bathroom is large enough for a chair or walker to enter but has a low toilet with no rails to grab onto. If needed, bring your own toilet chair. The dogs and the owner, JC, we’re so friendly. The house overall is wholesome and makes you feel like you’re staying at a grandparents house-a home away from home. The gravel driveway has a large dip at the top that bottoms out a car/van. Bring a taller vehicle if needed. This location is about 19 minutes from Waynesville, 25 minutes to Asheville/Biltmore and about 45 minutes from Cherokee- just what we needed. There is a Toffee place about two miles away that you HAVE to try out- Cold Mountain Toffee. It was out of this world! We went back a few times during our stay.
