"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." ~ Melody Beattie
If you let The Mast Farm Inn, Valle Crucis & North Carolina touch your soul as it has touched ours, you will see why we are here and the indescribable gratitude we feel for the people and the place. Some places are simple magic, and this is one of those places.
"Do not judge by appearances; a rich heart may be under a poor coat." ~ Scottish Proverb
It’s the old home place, beloved from the 1790’s, with as much authenticity, and as little bluff and pretense as we can muster. The world is a complicated place, the Mast Farm Inn and Valle Crucis are simple places. It is the proverbial real deal, owned and managed by real people for real people. We invite you to visit our beloved old home place with an open heart, and you will discover the true measure and value of simplicity.
"Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art." ~ Frederic Chopin
