Hundreds of acres to hike or bike on trails in the woods. We also have large open pastures with horses and cows. 

Around our house, peacocks roam the property as well as geese and chickens. Ten minutes from town feels like a world away. Stay in our one room cabin and listen to owls calling as the sun goes down. It was built by Kip and his son roughly 25 years ago and has been enjoyed by the family over the years. It has a large, open fireplace (s'mores, anyone?), breezy loft space and a covered back porch. There is a small pull out sofa with a clean mattress, chairs and a table inside (ground floor), outside chairs and a porch swing out back. There is something about the sound of rain on the tin roof of our cabin. We have a gas lantern for your use; there is no electricity at The Cabin so bring flashlights for night time.

Check out our Extras! We have fruits and vegetables available from our gardens during spring, summer and fall--tomatoes, blackberries, pears, muscadines, sweet potatoes, pecans--ask us what's available in season if you're interested!

From the apiary we have raw honey from the wildflowers around the farm. Honey is available after the spring honey flow in May until we run out.

Our chickens lay the best eggs, too! Get yourself a dozen for a nice camp-style breakfast with grits cooked over the fire in the morning. As the length of days shortens, the hens stop laying for their winter rest so supplies tend to dwindle around October through March.

This property is so fun! So much forest to explore, very private, plenty of wood for an indoor or outdoor fire, the indoor fireplace has perfect grates to help with cooking and log placement and the cabin itself is quaint and homey. My pup loved all the free area to roam. My friend and I are already talking about our next visit! 10 out of 10 would recommend.

We had an absolutely wonderful time during our stay at Kip’s cabin! We met Kip and his sweet dogs at the farm house and Kip led us through the pastures and woods to reach the cabin while stopping occasionally to provide information on the cattle, horses, and other significant parts of the farm. I drove a 2017 Subaru Outback through the pastures and woods to the cabin, I think any SUV would make it, but I would just be careful with a sedan. When we arrived at the cabin Kip gave us a brief history of the structure, a tour, and important information to know before leaving. We then took a walk with my dog on one of the many mowed paths that Kip has made around the property. It was very peaceful and serene, especially with the fall colors!

We slept on the pullout couch because it was closer to the fire, I recommend bringing your own bedding because there was none provided at the cabin. I brought a sheet, two sleeping bags, 2 blankets, and pillows.

We brought a camping grill but also utilized the fireplace inside. Plastic utensils and plates/bowls for food were provided which we really appreciated! Bring your own water! We brought 3 gallon jugs and full water bottles.

The outhouse was very clean and was just far enough away from the cabin for privacy. I suggest bringing your own toilet paper.

Kip and his wife went above and beyond for us and made us feel welcome and comfortable. I can’t wait wait to return!

Lots of space to Roam. I was concerned about my larger dog but she had plenty of land to explore and run around. Mr. Kip was kind. When my larger dog got loose, he was patient and understanding. He said dogs just like to roam and to not worry she would most likely come back to me. And he was right she did so well. With so much land our dogs had plenty of space to run and I didn’t have to worry about them getting too close to a road or to other people. The cabin is sturdy and Well-built. With a huge fireplace that is a delight to cook on. It’s just like camping except you don’t have to be in a small tent and sleeping on the ground. There is a wonderful pull out couch. My eight-year-old daughter loved all of the hiking trails and she and I can’t wait to come back.

Well when I woke up Sat morning and went on the porch it was like I was in the mountains far from home. Loved the cabin, peace and quiet.
Looking forward to bringing my grandson's for the weekend.

Staying at Kip's cabin was great! It was exactly the offline weekend we needed. We found it to match the description pretty well, with the exception of water- Kip told us the creek had dried up when we arrived, so if we had planned on filtering water we would have need to take the quick trip back into town. Kip was super friendly and he kindly shared produce, eggs, honey, and grits from his farm. Making eggs and grits over the campfire was a highlight of the weekend. The area was very quiet and we loved spending the day wandering around the trails through the woods. Beware the spiders in the out house though!

Lots of beautiful trails to explore.Our dogs loved wandering around the woods. We appreciated that pets are allowed on or off leash. Here's the view of the cabin from the fire pit. We spent a good amount of our trip just relaxing by the fire.

Quiet, beautiful, and totally off grid. It is two large pastures and a small wood away from the farm animals and so my dog could run about as she pleased (play in the creek, chase wildlife, bury bones) and not bother anything/one. There is a deeper sense of being able to unplug when my dog is enjoying herself too. :)

Walkins Farm is lovely and Kip and Connie are fantastic hosts. The flock of peacocks, mixing with geese and chicken, up at the front house give their place a magical quality. This is the second time I have been here and I will certainly be back!

What a special place!! Kip (and his sweet pup Cosmo) was a wonderful host who went above and beyond showing us around and answering all of my MANY questions about the area and farm. The cabin was very cozy with a huge fireplace that we all slept in front of. We went for a hike down the creek to a beaver pond and then hiked all around the property. We saw a baby deer, rabbits, and listened to owls hoot in the evening. Kip also has peacocks which were super cool and we were even able to keep a few feathers!!

I also recommend buying the eggs and grits when you go as well. The eggs were so good and the old fashioned milled grits were the best I’ve ever had! Thanks for such a lovely weekend, Kip!! We’ll be back for sure!

Very quiet getaway. No electricity it running water. But if you're looking for a rustic cabin getaway this is it. Lots of nice hiking. There is also a small creek nearby. Recommend bringing your own bedding. There are some basic kitchen supplies but we brought some of our own to include a ton for washing the dishes. There is cast iron dutch oven to cook from. We had to wash it and attempted to re-season it before using. The cabin has no insulation so middle of winter camping would recommend take warm blankets or sleeping bag.
