Re.Imagine is a nearby gallery featuring the works of seven resident artists and over twenty other local artists. We have just toured the gallery for the first time and enjoyed seeing the paintings and mixed media art. Marietta purchased a small walnut bowl and Etta purchased a mixed media woven basket.

Root Cause Farm!

Root Cause Farm is a local organization that grows organic produce for the hungry on a one acre farm. Frank and Etta were able to view the garden at a recent festival. They were struck by how beautiful and bountiful the garden was. This volunteer-driven farm does a great service for the local community and The Cove at Fairview is glad to have contributed a monetary donation!

Electric Charging Station!!

The Cove at Fairview is happy to announce our new electric charging station! This Level 2 EEV Fast Charger is available free of charge through the summer for our guests.

We have a commitment to sustainability which includes using refurbished barn wood in our furniture and in our houses. We also have a solar power chicken coop and welcome some wildflowers into our gardens.

We are excited that our guests have started using this charger!

Heart Pine Table!!

We have recently purchased a new set of upholstered dining table chairs at The Huntley Cabin. The dining table is a heart pine table that Marietta’s Grandfather made in the 1920s. Ben made this table so that his wife Beatrice had a counter-top to use for cooking. We love to share our family history with our guests!

Wilson Farm!!

Wilson Farm is a local family farm that offers great produce at their farm store. Last week we had a squash casserole made from squash they grew locally. It was delicious! This week they are selling farm fresh tomatoes and green beans as well as an assortment of other veggies. We can’t wait for the farm fresh okra to come in later this summer!

Rhododendron Bloom!

Seen here is a Rhododendron in bloom. The native Rhododendron is different from cultivated Rhododendrons. Of all of our mountain trees and native plants this is perhaps the most cherished. Do not mistake it for Mountain Laurel, which has a smaller leaf. We love sharing the majesty of the natural world with our guests!

Etta Garden!

We have been making improvements at the Etta Garden! Shown here is Frank taking a much needed break and his brother Harry hard at work. Harry visits us from Raleigh several times a year and is awesome at landscaping. The Cove at Fairview appreciates his work!

Baby Chicks!!

Recently we got ten chicks, 5 Barred Rocks and 5 Buff Orpingtons. They will live in a large enclosure in the feed room for about 1 month and then in the smaller coop for a month or so before joining the grown hens in one of the coops. We expect that these chicks will be laying eggs in November.

We will be sure to post more picts of the chicks soon!

Cane Creek Valley Market

Cane Creek Valley Market is a nearby vegetable stand. Marietta says that their heirloom organic tomatoes are possibly the best tomatoes that she has ever had. These heirloom tomatoes and some of the other vegetables are grown within walking distance at Cane Creek Valley Farm. This USDA certified organic farm also sells wholesale to some local grocery stores.  They are soon opening an ice cream shop on site with outdoor seating.  We can’t wait to try it!

Weather Gauge!

This weather gauge was used by William (Bill) Moore to measure rainfall in Moncure, NC for the National Weather Service.  Bill was Marietta’s father and was loved by all.  In addition to measuring rainfall and snowfall, Bill also measured highest temperature, lowest temperature, and current temperature.  This is the official 1940’s rain gauge that he used.  The stand has been rebuilt and a new measuring stick has been purchased.  The rain gauge still works!
