Mast Farm Inn

One of my best friends in the whole entire world (Rebecca) lives in Valle Crucis, North Carolina and works at a bed and breakfast called the Mast Farm Inn. She so sweetly gave Josh and I a two night stay at the Inn for our wedding gift and this past weekend we finally redeemed it.

 





Let me tell you, I did not want to come back! If someone could have packed Murphy up and sent him on to Valle Crucis, we'd probably still be there, haha! It was GORGEOUS and the Inn...I have no words. I just kept running around all weekend calling it "sweet" because that's exactly what it was. The sweetest little place ever. We stayed in the Loom House cabin and all of the vintage touches inside of that place were astounding. We walked in Friday night and an old radio was softly playing Willie Nelson, there was a card sitting on the table with our names on it welcoming us to the cabin and all of the lights were twinkling inside the cabin. The most fabulous bathtub I have ever seen was perched in front of two beautiful windows and the canopy over the bed was breathtaking. They literally thought of everything when decorating this cabin and it showed how much love and time they had put into it to make every person's experience as enjoyable as it can be. There were little sweets waiting for us, each day we had a new card with our name on it and a "thought for the day". The breakfast menus had our name on them each morning and our names were incorporated throughout the entire menu and it was SO unique. Little touches like this made this stay go above and beyond our expectations and I would visit the Mast Farm Inn a million times over! Our cabin had a front porch and we spent Sunday morning listening to the birds sing and sipping on coffee. Saturday night we enjoyed cocktails on the porch before dinner...I could make a permanent spot on that front porch if they'd let me. Nothing better.






Y'all, the food was fantastic. We had dinner at the Inn on Saturday night and oh my goodness.  They did an appetizer of truffled popcorn with parmesan cheese and almonds...my mouth is drooling just thinking about it. Another favorite of mine was their brussel sprouts and bacon...delicious is an under statement, trust me. Breakfast each morning was out of this world too. I can't even being to describe it. Quiches, biscuits, French toast bread pudding, sausage, bacon...you see? Delicious.




Valle Crucis is a beautiful place and the beauty of the mountains mesmerized me the whole trip. It is home to the original Mast General Store and Josh was pretty excited that we got to go shopping in it. We have one on Main Street in Columbia, but obviously not as cool as the original one :) Valle Crucis is also close to Boone, which has a great downtown area that we spent a little time at on Saturday. Boone is home to Appalachian State and their campus is so pretty! We drove the Blueridge Parkway and I kept squealing to Josh "look over here, oh my goodness, isn't that beautiful, look look look!" Of course, he couldn't do much looking because he was driving, but we pulled over at quite a few overlooks and we also went hiking. Our hike was beautiful and I could have sat at the top of the mountain forever. There is just something about slowly down and enjoying yourself. I don't do it near as often as I should. There is a park right down from the end that runs along that Wautaga River and hands down it was one of the most beautiful parks I've ever been to. It was so wide open and PEACEFUL. Oh so peaceful. 





We hope to be able to make this a annual weekend trip each year, we'd love to come back sometime in the fall. This was the best weekend we've had in a while and I truly can't say anything good things about the Mast Farm Inn, I could rave for days! Rebecca, this was the BEST wedding gift we received and I am so thankful for how much you accommodated us on this trip and even MORE thankful for the time that we got to spend with you. We love you so much and treasure our friendship with you more than you will ever know.
