Education and Events at our
Conference Center

Schedule your event at Boundary End Farm! Not only do we host Boundary End Archeology Research Center in the library, we have a recently remodeled 1000 square foot open and airy classroom space with tables and chairs for you to use. There is a 3 bedroom bungalow farmhouse available for short term rental as well as an efficiency 1820's log cabin (available in the spring of 2025) There are also many other short term rentals available very close by if you need more housing for your group.  With the farm adjacent to the Big Ivy section of the Pisgah National Forest, the possibilities for use of one or all of the spaces on the property are endless. Here are just a few of the ideas for events to plan:


  • Educational Seminars and small conferences

  • Writers workshops

  • Group Retreats

  • Family Gatherings

  • Wildflowers and birding - a base for education and hikes directly into the forest

  • Ecology and Sustainability education

  • Art and Crafting classes 

  • Astronomy study in our dark sky open areas

  • Photography workshops 

  • Music workshops

The workshop space is available for a reduced rate if the Bungalow and Cabin are rented for your event. Contact us for pricing and details.

Boundary End Farmhouse

This 1920's Craftsman Bungalow was thoughtfully restored by George Stuart while he enjoyed his busy retirement at Boundary End Farm.  With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths we can accommodate small groups of colleagues, friends and families.  When not housing a long term resident scholar the farmhouse is available for short term rental.  Click below for availability and pricing.


Boundary End Cabin

Boundary End Cabin is a fully restored and updated 1820's hand hewn log cabin.  Moved out of the National Forest, where it originally served as the cookhouse for the Coleman Lumber Company,  the one room cabin was restored with historical accuracy except for the added modern luxury of finally having an indoor bathroom.  A small kitchenette and small sleeping loft make the cabin the prefect retreat for one or two people.  It will be available for short term scholars and short term rentals in May of 2025.


Stone Circle Megaliths

In collaboration with the archeology students and faculty at Warren Wilson College, George Stuart constructed a stone circle in the front pasture at Boundary End Farm.  The stones are placed accurately to mark solstices and equinoxes as the sun rises and sets along the ridges that surround our cozy mountain valley.  With access to only ancient tools, the students rolled the huge stones that were stockpiled from the old farm fields on logs to their current locations  and then buried them in deep settings hand dug using only  deer bones as shovels.
