Fairmead Farm is a secluded sanctuary on a 200-year old Appalachian farm. We’ve kept aesthetics and the historical appeal as our priority. We think it’s a beau-tee-ful cove. Creekside tent camping (Site #1), has a raised tent pad that will keep you as comfortable as the ground will allow, in the shade of our trees and between the hills. A roof-covering (Shed Site #2) provides the additional security if you want to avoid the prospects of inclimate weather. UNDER CONSTRUCTION: For those seeking the best of a glamping experience, a 20 X 30’ refurbished cabin on stone piers is scheduled to open for business in mid-summer 2020. No matter which site, we like the quiet this hollow affords. The first thing you'll notice when you step out of your car, is the solitude enhanced by a mountain ridge nearly all the way around the property. You can enjoy exposed rock boulders on our slopes. Access to public hiking trails on the ridge. From the ridge, you can almost touch Table Rock Mountain (State Park), Sassafras Mountain, Whiteside Mountain (Cashiers, NC) and beyond. Our farm residence (circa early 1900s) fades into the panorama tranquility will not intrude upon your camping sites. Enjoy our full-service bathroom with running water. Grocery store and hardware store just 10 minutes away is hard to believe.

Brian has a great spot for camping. He is very accommodating and helpful.
He met us the first night we arrived and showed us where everything was in the best place to put our overland or trailer. We invited them down in the evening to hang with us by the fire and he joined us for about an hour each night. It was a very fun trip. We shall return
The campsite was great! I had a little fire pit, picnic table, and great tent patch. Brian was kind enough to provide firewood as well. The bathroom was super clean and the hot shower felt amazing after a long day of hiking. Sam the doggo provided great companionship and the night was calm quite.
Brain was cordial and knowledgeable, with a lovely property! Our campsite was nice- quiet (a few wildlife noises 🦉) and scenic. It was a short hike to the bathroom, so you may want to bring a bucket/camp toilet. Sam the dog was very friendly and played well with our male puppy. Would definitely stay again.
Great campsite w/nice bathroom
Camped in two tents, with plenty of room for more. Beautiful land and area. Nice hike only 5 min away at Big Rock Mtn. There is a nice bathroom shared with the cabin that is available for campers as well. The campsite is about 150 feet from the host's house, but did not impact the feel of remote camping we were looking for. Brian is a great host and has a sweet yellow lab. Sam, the lab, does like to get into your food/drink, so you'll need to keep an eye on that or put him on the run/leash next to Brian's house if it bothers you. Since we were kayaking, I wasn't able to bring my dog along... so having Sam around the campfire was welcomed.
Beautiful, serene, and restorative
Brian's land is really peaceful and beautiful. The campsite overlooks pasture and has beautiful woods surrounding. The ridge surrounds the cove and gives a really safe and sheltered atmosphere. Very calm and serene location that is also full of interesting history.
Blue ridge mountain camping
Upon arrival, Brian was there to greet and meet me at the location. As I was pulling up in the car, it started to rain. He suggested I use the sheltered tent site, which was nice, because the tent site I booked was not sheltered. He is passionate about the area, let me know that he is accessible by phone at any time. The bathroom is very nice and the warm shower was perfect before a days trip kayaking to the waterfall on Lake Jocassee. Thanks Brian!
This is an amazing campsite and Brian is a fantastic host. We have been here a couple times now and it’s perfect. The farm is idyllic to wake up to in the morning and peaceful at night. Nearby lots of great activities and laid out extremely well. Better than a hotel!
