Ox-Ford Farm Bed & Breakfast Inn
Ranked #3 of 5 Weaverville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 July 2011

The farm is wonderful with all the peacocks, chickens, sheep, cows, a donkey and a tom turkey who thinks he's a peacock. But at throughout the night and especially early morning those critters are talking.

The house had four rooms, one down and 3 upstairs and the upstairs rooms all share one bath. The downstairs room has an ensuite bath and there is an additional shared bathroom downstairs also.

Breakfast is not before 9 or 9:30am so don't plan to eat there and get out early. In the morning she serves mini muffins and coffee or tea then later makes breakfast. Gives you time to wander the property and visit with the amimals while she makes the meal. Breakfast was very filling, with bacon, eggs, toast, fruit, jam etc.

Don't come looking for TVs, internet, Spa or any such ammenities because there isn't any here. But if you want to feel like you've stepped back into the country farm life and watch the fireflies and hear the sounds of aminals and feel the slower pace of life this is a one of a kind experience.

Room Tip: Only the downstairs bedroom has an ensuite bath.

Dr. Edith Hapke is the 82(?) year-old, four-foot-ten, German-accented owner of this working farm/b&b. It is a vanity project for her, as she is a retired pulmonologist from Asheville. She, her nice and overworked young Mexican employee (I think his nickname was Pepito but my memory could be wrong), and her four giant and very sweet white Alsatians (Molly, Corolla, Vasca, and Leslie) run the farm, which has sheep, a pair of pet Highland Cattle with a new calf, about 50 roaming peacocks, and chickens and roosters on the steep side of a branch outside Weaverville. The house has four bedrooms - Edith sleeps in an apartment over the sheep barn, as she likes to be near the lambs.

Edith is a character - she says she accepts fewer requests for reservations than she turns away depending if she likes their attitude on the phone. Don't go and stay there for a new-age "cleansing weekend"! Expect plenty of bacon fat, pancakes, three kinds of home-made jam, pork chops, and several varieties of breads and muffins for breakfast. And don't go expecting a neutral, personality-free experience! We had a great time talking with her and listening to her definitive opinions about everything. She does like to talk, and sometimes gets a little distracted and forgets about cooking breakfast when she's in mid-story. It's all part of the mystique that is Edith.

My wife and I both thought it was also a great value for the money, and the stay there ended up as a very positively memorable part of our trip. Only drawback - bring earplugs! The #%#$%$ roosters start at 3:30 AM!
