Escape hectic daily life to the sounds of country life on our gorgeous horse farm, Cavalleria Rusticana, in beautiful Waxhaw Horse Country, located in the Piedmont of NC. As an Airbnb SUPERHOST, we offer an adults-only getaway for two, your horses, and/or your dog(s) in our old world luxury in-barn guesthouse. Wine, coffee bar, snack basket, and two light breakfasts included per stay. Guided trail riding locally, wineries, and unique restaurants!

The space
The Villa is an apartment at one end of our barn. The Villa is beautiful and comfortable old world luxury suitable for two non-smoking adults and maximum of two dogs. It is quiet and private. Wine & coffee bars, snack basket, six bottles of water, and two light breakfasts included per stay.

Country life is wonderful. We don’t have much noise from roads or airplanes here for the most part. As a working farm, expect to hear us in the barn, garage, and on the grounds. Horses make sounds talking to each other, dogs bark, wildlife especially the wide array of birds on the farm become blissfully active, and you can enjoy the sounds of nature, farm life, and the lovely sounds of neighboring cows, roosters, geese, and ducks with an occasional donkey.

Please plan to bring with you:
- Bottled water (We provide one roll of paper towels and two rolls of toilet paper per stay)
- Pet towels
- Boots for walking in the grounds

Guided horseback trail rides are offered nearby, we do not allow guests to feed treats to our horses, but you’re welcome to pet our horses at the gate. Our five dogs are penned, never loose. We have free-roam cats you’re welcome to snuggle with all you want.

Our unique equestrian farm stay includes the opportunity to experience farm life, while you enjoy watching our Friesian horses and wildlife. We are open from 4pm-9pm for check-in. Guests must check out by 11am on check out day. We do not offer early/late check-in/out due to Housekeeping’s schedule.

Our guesthouse is an upscale experience. Luxury kitchen and high-end full bath with copper sinks, matte-finish quartzite countertops, tumbled travertine backsplash, rough-cut slate walls, and a leathered granite bar take you back to old world luxury. We email restaurant suggestions and things to do prior to your arrival.

You can use 15 acres of land to walk, play, and relax.. enjoy your time in an enjoyable way!! You are going to love #CavalleriaLife!

No feeding the any of our animals please, most importantly our horses.
