We have a really beautiful creek that runs approximately 3/4 mile through the farm and includes a swimming hole that is available for hip campers to use. It is crystal clear water with many critters intriguing to children and adults alike. There is a cemetery dating to the early 1800s that is a short hike from the yurt. We have lovely logging roads and potential for exploring through the woods. The topography here is unique and rugged, with bluffs, caves, and creeks. The third largest cave in TN, Indian Grave Point is 1/4 mile from the farm. The farm is located a short drive from Center Hill Lake Where you can rent a boat or canoe, fish, and swim.
***Sheets and towels are not provided, so please plan accordingly!
***There are two beds and a small cot available, but plenty of camping space and floor space for larger groups. Bring your own tent and bedding.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Overall we had a great experience. Unfortunately, the water was from a well and smelled really bad. Also, we couldn't lock up. It is out in the country but going to bed with the doors unlocked was an unsettling feeling. I had bought alot of food to be cooked in the oven while we was there and come to find out the oven didn't work and only one burner worked, so that was interesting to get around. We loved that we was able to disconnect from everyday life and just hang out, hike, play games and bond as a family. We enjoyed being on the deck either drinking coffee or eating dinner. It overall needs some work but it has awesome potential! We would definitely be back if these things were fixed. Mrs. Nora was very kind and lovely and was great with our kids.
Wonderful experience in nature
We had a wonderful experience and can’t wait to go back again. The Hosts were very welcoming and helpful! It’s a beautiful farm with beautiful views. We really enjoyed the creek and porch at the yurt. I was nervous about the composting toilet, but it did not smell at all and was a non issue. Definitely family friendly place to unplug and enjoy nature.
Best getaway ever!
We had a wonderful time at the Yurt and couldn´t be any happier. We felt so fortunate being able to enjoy breathtaking views from our cozy, comfortable, and private accommodation. We couldn´t ask for more. Nora was the best host and my daughters talk about her like she is one more of the family :)
Thank you Nora for the opportunity you´ve given us to experience farm life at a breathtaking location and for the time spent showing us around and welcoming our girls into your life.
The ultimate “glamping” experience!
The Yurt at Creekbend Farm is awesome. It’s very private and the perfect farm experience getaway. The creek is great for a summer day with kiddos. Don’t let the “Bucket” bathroom scare you- it’s clean and doesn’t smell and it was actually kinda fun to learn about. This is the ultimate “glamping” experience. We made a fire and we all slept like babies! It’s so quiet. We saw deer and the cows there are very friendly. We will definitely go back!
Beautiful stay and wonderful hosts
We enjoyed our stay at the Yurt + extended bedroom for our children. The view from the deck is splendid. Our hosts were delightful, entertaining, and helpful. The potteries and the self-made oven is truly amazing. The private creek is clear and refreshing ( We had a chance to see an otter from close range). No mosquitos !!! ( If you travel from Georgia). Lots of deers and other non-harmful wildlife around.
The yurt was the perfect stay for our family. We enjoyed seeing deer in the early mornings and evenings. The children loved watching the cows. Getting to the creek is a hike thru tall grass but totally worth it once you get to it. We loved it so much not even the rain could ruin our time playing in it. The cave mentioned is for spurlunkers which we are not but we drove about an hour away and toured Cumberland cave. We will be back again!
Watch wildlife in the meadow
Relaxing to watch the deer and cows in the meadow, as the sun went down. Nora walked us to the creek which has the clearest water I've seen in TN. A relaxing and peaceful place ot visit.
