New Fountain at the Koi Pond!

This picturesque pond has recently been renovated. We have had the pond drained and sediment removed after the Koi Fish were relocated to another pond, of course.

Now the pond is filled with fresh water and Farris and Danny have been moving Koi Fish back to this pond. You see several Koi now when you feed them!

Also, we have added a beautiful fountain to this pond which is accentuated by spring azaleas.

Re.Imagine!

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 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!

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!

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!

Beautiful Lotus Picture Taken at Our Koi Pond!

Very rarely does a photograph reflect back to you the true beauty of nature, the serenity of a perfect moment.  We at the Cove at Fairview are awe inspired by the photography of Steven Fulghum and were honored for him to take pictures at our property.  Please enjoy viewing dragonfly_opening_lotus taken by Stephen Fulghum as seen in the May issue of Rapid River Magazine.  The feature article captures his experience of taking this and other photographs.  Rapid River Magazine is “the oldest and most-read arts and culture magazine in WNC” and we recommend checking it out while planning your vacation itinerary.
