Since we are a new listing on AIRBNB, Here are some of our previous reviews (copied from guestbook).
What a fantastic place with fantastic owners! We spent our Christmas Holiday at Nell's Farm House as we have family nearby. The Metcalfe's were fantastic hosts as they had a Christmas Tree decorated and awaiting us. Wassail on the stove and a fresh evergreen wreath on the front door. This house is exactly as the pictures show. The house and surrounding farm so closely resembled the house I grew up in and spent 45 Christmas Seasons that my family decided to gather in Nell's living room for our gift giving. What a outstanding stay! It was like being back at my grandparents house again, with lots of memories.
Oh and if you like special sunrises, make the coffee, open the curtain on the sliding glass door and have a seat at the kitchen table. Peer out the door and wait, it'll be there.(You can imagine it now, can't you?) Beautiful, I saw it.
This is the best. House, hosts, location, surroundings, serenity, you name it.
(BTW: The Metcalfe's must be fantastic people. They, like me love those tiny layer chocolate cakes!)

How we enjoyed Debi's true Southern hospitality at Nell's Farmhouse this past spring! The home is so spotless and well maintained, and the area so quiet, we're counting the days till we can return and watch the horses from the kitchen!!!

Little House on the Prairie
The house is in excellent shape and was perfect for our use. It is very private and quiet so sleeping at night was not a problem. Overall I would recommend this property.

Can't wait to go again!
I just had an excellent stay at Nell's Farm House. The house is very comfortable and quiet. I cooked several meals while there and was able to find everything I needed in the kitchen. It is well-stocked, clean, and fully operational. I am originally from Shelby, and being at Nell's was like being back home for me. Look forward to going again when I make a trip down to work on the family tree! Thank you Debi for your kind hospitality!

Peaceful and Relaxing
We had a great time visiting family in NC. We looked around for Hotels close by and none of them had good reviews. It was great! Debi was very nice and genuinely excited we were coming. She welcomed us with kindness and enthusiasm.....but she was very good about giving us our space after a 9 hour car ride :) The beds were REALLY comfortable and the house was SO quite. It was REALLY nice after spending a day with a 4 year old. Debi moved her horses to the back pen, so every morning we would wake up, look out the back door, and see the horses. That was awesome! I would HIGHLY recommend this place! Thanks again Debi!

Home away from home...
We had a BLAST staying at Nell's. The area is beautiful, and house is close to Gardner-Webb where our son goes to school. Both Debi and Harold are friendly and very accommodating. We enjoyed being able to fix our son home-cooked meals (what he misses most from home). Able to step out the door to walk in the countryside, or hop in the car to see trees changing color across the state. Will definitely be staying here whenever we visit in the future.

Very nice to have a place to stay for 11 days while working the Cleveland County fair. everything was just as the post said. Nice to have a fully furnished kitchen for some home cooked meals. Harold and Debi were great hosts, as well as the family dog Maddox (who we looked forward to seeing every day!) far enough out in the country to be nice & quiet yet close enough to town to not have a long drive for errands. If you get a chance while there try out "Smoke on the Square" restaurant in downtown! the shrimp and grits are to die for!

Country Charm, Southern Hospitality
We chose this property because of it's proximity to Gardner-Webb University in nearby Boiling Springs. Both Debi and Harold were very informative and willing to answer all our questions about the surrounding area. We ran into a last minute problem that we feared would be an issue, but instead they were very understanding. Upon arrival the house was clean and exactly as described in the ad. Over the course of several days Debi gave recommendations on places to eat, and places to go. Our stay was pleasant and relaxing, especially sitting out on the elevated deck. We recommend it to anyone needing to stay in the area as opposed to staying in an area hotel.

Looking forward to staying at Nell's Farm House
just wanted to let lookers know how accommodating Debi has been to us! We had a very unique situation and it did take several phone calls and emails but we have settled on something there. We are going to be staying there for several days (12) and looking forward to a "home" setting instead of motel room while in town. Can't wait to write another review after our stay to let people know how nice it is! :)
