An Unforgettable Escape Right Outside Of Boone, NC

Where luxury and charm come to life

Relax and unwind at The Inn at Little Pond Farm, a modern farmhouse inn in the mountains of western North Carolina.  We think of our country inn as more than a bed and breakfast but as a physical extension of our mind’s happy place. Say hello to a place where your concerns are unfounded, the details are handled, and you may breathe easily with the weight of the world firmly off your shoulders.

The Inn at Little Pond Farm is the ultimate combination of luxury and calm, thanks to its lavish European finishes that make guests feel at home. Every aspect of your stay will be luxurious, from the Provence-imported furniture and tableware to the kitchen’s use of locally produced food.

Karen & Ben Slocum - Owners

Ben and Karen Slocum live in Charlotte, NC, with their two children. Karen was born and raised in Charlotte, NC, before moving up and down the East Coast for college, medical school, residency, and fellowship. Ben is from Vienna, VA, but he was raised in a military family and lived everywhere from Seattle to Key West and even Naples, Italy before attending college in western Massachusetts.  Ben continued his travels after graduation and resided in Louisiana, Kentucky, Arizona, and Washington, D.C.


Ben and Karen began their lives together in Washington, D.C., but Karen always felt the pull to be back in North Carolina.  Both Ben and Karen love the North Carolina weather, the ability to be in the mountains or at the beach after a quick drive, and the undeniable southern charm and hospitality that North Carolina offers.

When they are not working, Ben and Karen enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, or trying out new restaurants or activities in the area.  They’ve always enjoyed new adventures — and they feel The Inn at Little Pond Farm will be their best one yet.
