The Mast Farm Inn estate is located on 21 acres in the pristine mountain village of Historic Valle Crucis, North Carolina. Valle Crucis, is North Carolina’s first rural historic district, designated as such by the legislature, and the entire community is officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as are many of its individual structure.
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. 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.
The United States Congress & The President of The United States designated the mountains of North Carolina the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area in recognition of their natural abundance and richly varied cultural history. The Blue Ridge National Heritage Trail is a collection of special places throughout the North Carolina mountains and foothills that embody the remarkable history and culture of the region. As of October 2015, a Blue Ridge National Heritage Trail interpretive sign greets visitors to The Mast Farm Inn in Historic Valle Crucis, North Carolina, and is one of 69 such signs installed as official stops on the The Blue Ridge Heritage Trail.
