Samantha's land is exactly as pictured - or better! She and her husband came to check on us just enough that we felt cared for, but not so much as to invade our privacy. They were incredibly accommodating about special requests re: arrival (we had a few last minute changes to our schedule) and they also left a very generous wood pile that was plenty for our trip. The only complaints I have are not anything within their control: there is very frequent road noise/neighbors playing music until after midnight on our trip.
We had some equipment failures and had to leave early, but based on their hospitality we would stay here again!
Beautiful setting in a lovely shady field. Hosts were friendly and responsive. There is lots to do in the area, right on the Appalachian trail, we had a great time exploring. And we loved our farm fresh eggs!
Great spot and kind hosts
We really enjoyed our stay here! The camping area is private and under tree cover, so it was nice and shady for us, great for escaping the heat. When we wanted sun, we could walk out to the field a few yards from our tent or head to the swimming hole. We saw wild rabbits and other wildlife, and we enjoyed seeing the chickens (not disruptive at all in the morning) and their big, sweet dogs. The dogs barked a lot but not when we would have been sleeping, so we really didn't mind. We were also able to get delicious farm fresh eggs from their farm stand.
The best part was how close we were to the Appalachian Trail. After we left our site, it's less than 50 feet to start the hike - Nothing better than finishing your hike and immediately being back at your site to chill out.
The hosts answered all my questions over text and were very friendly/kind in person. They run a great operation and make themselves very available; they really went above and beyond for us!
A couple of notes for the best experience: The ground of the swimming hole is a bit abrasive so I'd recommend water shoes, but they also have kayaks and other fun ways to enjoy the water. Also, as with any camping, bug spray will be your friend here. Lastly, as others have reported, there is street noise, but honestly it's not bad. I sleep with ear plugs in the city and made it through the night without them (though if you're sensitive maybe bring them as a backup). Excellent trip overall! Highly recommend
We really enjoyed our stay. We loved that the AT was right next to our campsite. We really loved kayaking. Thank you for letting us use your bathroom in the barn, that was a game changer. Our son loved the chickens and kayaking. We felt so refreshed from our experience.
A really beautiful camp site. We were able to make a fire with lots of wood they provided. The site is also easy to access with the car.
You can hear a little traffic but we’ve found that in other camp sites as well.
The surrounding area has plenty of cute towns to explore. The hiking is great!
1st camping with my two young kids
Samantha was a great host! She greeted us upon arrival, provided clear directions to the area to set up our tent just past the pond and greenhouse, and made us feel very welcome overall!
