The Mast Farm Inn is an award-winning North Carolina Country Inn, specializing in weddings, elopements, and honeymoons, in Historic Valle Crucis, North Carolina. The Mast Farm Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places, is a Member of Historic Hotels of America® and of The Select Registry®.
Valle Crucis is pronounced “Valley-Crew-Sis” and in Latin means Valley Of The Cross, so named for the rivers and streams which cross our valley. We are on the Watauga River in a beautiful mountain valley a little under a mile long, by about a quarter mile wide, surrounded by mountains, forests, rivers and streams, and our population is eight hundred.
Our location, history, geography, climate, and authentically friendly people, all contribute to making it quite simply a treasure… a natural sanctuary & haven of peaceful calm. It is a great place to live, and a great place to spend a few precious days. We are not just in the sticks… we are in the twigs.
That is partially true. First and foremost, we speak of some altogether mighty nifty twigs. While you have the impression you stepped back in time and are in the middle of rural nowhere, in fact some of the most vital, diverse and attractive small mountain villages in the United States are within 10 miles, as is the Blue Ridge Parkway, the second most visited National Park in America. Even a brief glimpse of the quantity and variety of nature and outdoor activities in our area will leave you breathless. A two to six hour drive from most major metropolitan areas in the southeastern United States, the major airports servicing this area, Charlotte International, Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and Asheville, NC, are about 2 hours driving time.
From an experiential perspective, this is a place to enjoy numerous activities and adventures, to get back to nature and the great outdoors, to broaden your horizons and knowledge, to build, rebuild or strengthen relationships, to be carefree, to challenge yourself by trying something new, a place where couples and families come to create memories, to develop and enhance perspective.
It’s a place of cultural discovery; new people, culture, experiences, food and drink, old history, traditions and legacies. It’s a place where for a few precious days you can enjoy life to the fullest, from the serenity of a secluded mountain stream to the pampering of two world-class luxury spas, and which offers a wide array of local experiences, including some of the finest dining in North Carolina. You can snuggle in front of a fireplace, immerse yourself in the local life & culture, or meet new people and make new friends with equal ease.
It’s a place which at the same time generates excitement, relaxation and fulfillment. It’s a place where you feel comfortable, energized, exhilarated, passionate & challenged, where couples and families can enjoy healthy carefree fun and feel closer. Our hope is that Valle Crucis and the Western North Carolina High Country will help you restore your sense of harmony and balance, that you will return home fulfilled and relaxed, hopefully enabling you to regain more solid footing and greater control of life. Time is the greatest luxury and you need time out with those who matter most; those that you love. Time to think, time to let go, and feel completely carefree, time to enjoy unique & interesting experiences.
