Harmony Glen is suitable for either RVs and trailers or tents. For vehicles I have a relatively level gravel pad, picnic table and fire pit, 30 amp hookup, delicious well water, and a host of outdoor opportunities.   I have a dump station but no direct sewage hookup.  I cannot accommodate rigs over 30'.

For tenters, I have a multitude of places to pitch your tent, a picnic table and fire pit, a toilet enclosure in a private area with maintenance instructions clearly posted, great water, and a host of outdoor opportunities. 

Anyone may purchase firewood @ $5.00 per bundle. Wi-Fi is available about 50 yds. from the campsite with seating provided while you check your phone or computer. If you need a table for a working or schooling get-away, I can provide that in my car port. My 40 acres have some trails, woodlands, open pastures and fields, creeks to fish or wade in, and plenty of places to roam or just relax in the shade.

Pets on a leash are welcome. 

If you appreciate easy access to fabulous hiking and waterfall viewing, enjoy a quiet evening outdoors by a campfire with the faint ring of a cow bell the only sound, watching lightning bugs illuminate the dark, glorious foliage in the fall, or a lush landscape that plays on all your senses, then you will love Harmony Glen. The very private single campsite is flanked by birch and white pine and borders a stream. Nantahala National Forest and pasture land are visible from the site, but houses are not. 

I am an avid hiker (my late husband and I walked the Camino Frances from St. Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago in 2014) and am familiar with many wonderful hikes in my area and whether they are moderate or strenuous. I loan campers a notebook showing all the great hikes and waterfalls and swimming and children's activities nearby with directions on how to get to them. I can interact with campers as desired with social distancing. I have had two shots of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine. I am practicing all the Covid-19 regulations ordered by our governor. I disinfect my notebook of suggested area activities and my toilet after each use. I am relatively near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Panthertown Valley, Cashiers and Highlands, Western Carolina University, and Sylva, NC. A room in my house was formerly the Argura post office, closed in 1953. Some old maps still show Argura on NC 281. That's Harmony Glen. My husband's book of poetry he wrote as his journal on the Camino is available from Amazon: Newton Smith, Camino Poems: Reflections on the Way, From St. Jean-Pied-de-Port to Finisterre. I look forward to meeting you soon!

June was an excellent host! She provided multiple areas for us to stay and a book with tons of tips and local info. She also let us check out her land and see her cows. We had a great time

This was our second time staying at Harmony Glen. For us, it is a magical place. The property is gorgeous and close to hiking, kayaking, microbreweries and fun towns.

The host, June, is deeply intelligent, thoughtful and kind. After our stays, we consider her a friend.

I’ve given the link for Harmony Glen to a few friends. I’ll kick myself if it becomes too busy and we can’t get a reservation!

Two thumbs up. Five stars. 10/10

We can only echo all of the other stellar reviews- June is a wonderful host, the place is beautiful, quaint, and relaxing. My husband is already scheming a return trip.

Lots to do and access within a 30-60 min drive.

Some practical notes- we had no cell or wifi (ATT, Sprint or Verizon) June accommodates on her home network but it requires you to be up near her home-your rig will be off grid.

RV site requires leveling- side to side, and front-back. Totally worth it!

No GPS up on the mountain, have your Garmin/directions ready and be slow on your approach, not many places to turn around (we learned the hard way ;) )

Very nice campsite. We really enjoyed our nights stay. Would’ve loved to have had more time to explore the grass trail around the property, maybe next time! June was a great host and we were thankful for the fire wood she had available. There is a small creek that you can hear, which was very relaxing.

Lovely place and lovely host!

The campsite was mostly flat and shaded but I could still see stars at night.

The host, June, was wonderful. I told her that it was my birthday and she baked me a pie!

Can’t wait to go back!

Although our stay at Harmony Glen was wet (can't blame mother nature though 😅) we still very much enjoyed our stay away from reality for a couple nights. June is a very sweet host and very hospitable. We will be back (with sunny weather, we hope). 😉

We most definitely recommend staying here at Harmony Glen.
