Located ten minutes west of Chapel Hill, NC, Genesis Farm is a private retreat like none other in the area. A pastoral setting is the backdrop for pleasant rural living on the farm. Leave behind the hectic, fast-paced techno-world and breathe in the sounds and smells of nature.
We have two rentals by the farm that we call The Barnhouse and The Barnhouse Too! Our rentals are considered "extended stay". Each comes fully furnished and fully equipped and is smoke-free and pet free inside and out. Very private.
Your stay will be enhanced by the many comforts and unique features found in each dwelling that give them a charm of their own.
- Two credit references or credit report required.
- We accept cash, personal or traveler's checks.
- County ordinance requires a minimum stay of three months.
- We are your neighbors, so we seek tenants who will also make good neighbors: very quiet, clean, responsible and employed (or retired) who understand and appreciate Nature and the rural value of land. This is not urban living!
- Prices: $150 night (three night minimum)
- Weekly: $700
- Monthly: $1500
What We Require - Extended Stay (please read)
A washer/dryer allows you to pack light, and our equipped kitchen allows quiet evenings for staying in. Although we are off the beaten path, many fine restaurants and shopping are within a few minutes drive. Easy drive to UNC campus, NC Botanical Garden, Weaver Street Market, Hillsborough and Pittsboro. We are twenty-five miles west of RDU airport via I40.
Short-Term Tenants Visitors who stay for more than two weeks are responsible for their own bed and bath linens, food, and internet connection, if you need one. We have basic staples to start you off (cleaning items and, of course, fresh eggs from our sassy hens). However, you are on your on to replace staples as you use them and once you leave. It is also your responsibility to recycle and remove trash, and we provide a map to the local recycling-dumpster center.
Please keep the house and yard clean and free of clutter.
Remember: the house and the entire area is smoke-free and pet-free. If you have visitors, please remind them to keep their pets at home.
