About the property

Three miles from the Appalachian Trail, five miles to Buladean, North Carolina and a 40-minute drive to Carvers Gap, our 18-acre, high elevation, wooded and meadowed Christmas tree farm is a wonderful jumping-off point for some of the best hiking, apple picking, and bird watching the Southeast has to offer. 

Unplug during your stay while you soak in the mountain views, peaceful sunsets, and local wildlife. 

About the listing

The farmhouse cabin at Creag Creak Farm is a relaxing abode where you can relax after an adventure or just lounge around all day and watch hummingbirds from the balcony. 

The structure features two bedrooms, one loft, and one bathroom, and can sleep six to eight adults across the two queen beds, two twin beds, and two couches. 

Come prepared to cook a feast in the well appointed kitchen, which includes a refrigerator, an oven, a range, and essential pots, pans, and spices. 

The cabin is heated with a beautiful wood burning stove. There is plenty of firewood onsite so you can be sure you'll stay warm. 

We also have a fire pit just a short walk up the path that offers up a cozy place for a campfire and some s’mores, as well as spectacular views. If you know you'll be using a lot of firewood during your stay, we offer a bundle that you can purchase as an Extra upon checkout. Please fully extinguish fires after use, and always follow county restrictions if there is a fire ban due to dry weather. 

Potable tap water, hot shower, flush toilets, and the wood stove inside all make for a comfortable stay. 

Pets are not allowed in the cabin, but there is plenty of space for them to enjoy the outdoors. Well behaved pets can be easily contained on the front porch.

Note that we have a couple other Hipcamp listings on the property, so you may occasionally see other campers around the farm during your stay, but the cabin still offers plenty of seclusion and privacy.

  • We don’t have WiFi available and cell phone reception can be limited onsite, so please be sure to plan for that in advance

The cabin on this farm was great. It was very clean and well appointed- perfect for our family of five. We all enjoyed the quiet to relax, explored the farm, and the kids loved playing on the rocks by the cabin. Joyce was very responsive to questions. I recommend it as a great getaway.

We had a fabulous time at the cabin over a long weekend stay. Even though it was super hot outside, the cabin stays pretty cool since it's situated on the side of the mountain and surrounded by trees most of the day. At night, we had a beautiful view of the stars and used the telescope to check them out. Our boys enjoyed exploring around the area and loved the scenery. The porch is a great place to hang out, read, and enjoy the breeze, even in the rain! The kitchen has all the stuff you need, the hot water was wonderful, the library has an excellent selection, and there were some fun movies and games. What a great little gem tucked into the mountainside. Don't forget to grab some farm fresh eggs down the road, too!

Supremely restorative, serene, and pastorally beautiful describes our stay at Creag Creek Farm.

During our stay at Creag Creek Farm, my husband and I lodged in the cabin on the property. It was meticulously cleaned, well-furnished, and stocked with everything we could possibly want for a tranquil mini-vacation. Our host, Joyce, did an amazing job at making this cabin feel like a true home away from home; she even stocked the fridge with some unexpected treats and baking essentials. We felt so well taken care of. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, Joyce!

The spacious deck adjoined to the cabin was perfect for relaxing and outdoor dining. From that elevated vantage point, we could spot turkey ambling in the adjacent pasture; and, several hummingbirds whizzed by intermittently to partake in the bounty of deck-perched bird- feeders.

As the sun began to set, my husband and were treated to a bouquet of vibrant colors playing on the expansive view of pastureland and the sweeping, mountain vista. It was a perfect way to end the day.

If you are searching for a quiet refuge that is both therapeutic and inspiring, we highly recommend staying at Creag Creek Farm. It easily ranks as one of our best-loved Hipcamps.

Thank you for sharing your bucolic paradise with us, Joyce! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Creag Creek Farm, and deeply appreciate your genuine hospitality.

The cabin was very nice! The kitchen was fully functional, the living room included a variety of movies and books, and the hot water heater worked very effectively! The fire pit is about a 2 minute hike further up beyond the cabin and has a nice atmosphere with a bench. The porch was also wonderful with some bird feeders; we even saw a hummingbird in the morning! Definitely recommend this stay for a refreshing, remote experience! Thank you!

The cabin at Creag Creak was just as I expected and more. More quiet, more secluded, more private, more peaceful, more of the desire to not want to leave. My husband and I went to get away and that we did. We never saw another soul, which was exactly what we needed. We completely unplugged and enjoyed the serenity. On the outside the Cabin gives you the authentic look and feel of many houses we remember that no longer exist and unfortunately have been lost over time. On the inside, you found a cabin feel, but modern comfort. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was all you needed and nicely stocked in case you forgot anything. The living room and dining room case you two options for heat, depending on your desire. A wood stove or a heating unit. Last, but not least, the kitchen was well stocked with everything from cast iron pans to pots, spices, and a refrigerator that made you feel at home to anything in it. We made a country breakfast and a steak dinner along with the help of the gas grill outside. The view from the front porch was amazing. We hit peak weekend for the foliage and could not have been more pleased just
To sit and take it all end. After watching the mountains turn into fire as the sunset, we made our way inside and watched movies from the selection.. The fire pit is just a 2 minute walk up the path and has an incredible view as well. We will be back.

Like the shire! What a stunning view/s. Cabin porch faces North so you can get a great panorama of the sun rising & setting. We happened to stay 5 nights straight along with 5 days of straight rain & clouds. Made it feel like we were living in the clouds (or the shire, wouldn’t have been surprised to have a hobbit show up at the door). Caught a magic ray of sun that spilled out over the mountain sides on the way out. Can’t say we saw them…but the view of the the stars is no doubt priceless. We found the beauty in those moody mountains. The host family was fantastic. They repaired a very random spring water salamander clog issue with proper urgency and follow up. Great art and well stocked kitchen. GREAT kitchen to cook in! Joyce certainly lends a lovely and very tasteful touch to the aesthetic and decor of this very special cabin. We’re totally going back for those Stars.
