The Mast Farm dates from the late 1700s, when Joseph Mast traveled to the mountains from Randolph County, North Carolina, where he was born in 1764. His father John had settled there after emigrating from Switzerland via Pennsylvania, where his brother remained. Joseph is said to have traded his rifle, his dog, and a pair of leggings for 1000 acres of fertile Watauga River Valley land. The first house, a two-room log cabin, was built around 1810 and remains today as the oldest inhabitable log cabin in Watauga County.
“I have recommended The Mast Farm Inn to several friends and family. I am planning a weekend trip there this spring. I just love it so much, I thought it was the perfect place to get away for the weekend!” ~ S.R.
“Sandra, The trip back was wonderful and we talked this afternoon and we would like to come back there maybe this summer on or motorcycle if we can get away. I would only come there if both you and your sister would be there. Keep up the good work and have a great year.” ~ DD
“Danielle, I am so happy to hear that things are almost done. You are such a blessing, and I am so glad you are in charge! … I look forward to meeting with you and getting everything else we need done out of the way. It’s so nice that I don’t have to do all the planning!” ~ DF
