8 sites · Lodging, RVs6 acres · Forest City, Rutherford
Enjoy our little "garden of Eden"! Relax in a communal wood-fired hot tub or by your private fire-pit in this growing little oasis in the foothills of the NC Blue Ridge Mountains! Great hiking and adventuring nearby @ Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Asheville & the Blue Ridge Parkway!
This is the third stay we have completed on our peaceful 6 acre oasis.
Sovereign Fireside Glampground currently has 7 unique stays available for guests.
For your your cooking needs we have everything you'll need in the outdoor common area kitchen, including a premium gas grill, refrigerator, and kitchen sink.
We also have power in the commons area to charge anything you bring (on your nightstand you'll also find a portable power supply lantern that also can charge phones - it should keep you charged through the weekend!).
Each site has it's own private fire-pit and hand-crafted picnic table.
The beautiful brand-new bathhouse is about 100 feet from the tent and is outfitted with flush toilets and bathroom sinks.
Our communal spa area awaits you at anytime. It includes a cedar barrel wood-fired hot tub, outdoor shower (no screening), and cold plunge tub. Be aware that the since the hot-tub is wood-fired, it heats the old fashioned way in about 2-3 hours. The cedar & smoke smell is SO worth the wait!
Please note that since the outdoor spa area is a communal area, bathing suits are required. :)
Enjoy visiting with our chickens and ducks, who often free-range around the property.
While you have plenty of space to yourselves, be aware that this property has MULTIPLE glamping sites. Expect the privacy of a normal campground, where you have your own space but other sites and the "caretaker residence" are within view.
We live in the house at the front of the property, the glamping sites are in the 6 acres behind the house.
You're more than welcome to bring your bikes, lawn games and other things you'd like to do.
Outside of our land the town and surrounding areas provide many activities for you to do.
Hidden gem small-town charm in Forest City & Rutherfordton, as well as everything you could possibly need only 8 mins away (Starbucks, Walmart, Aldi, the works)! For some local fun, sip a latte at Small Town Coffee Roasters, treat yourself at Pie Safe Bakery, bike the Thermal Belt Trail, hike the Purple Martin Greenway, play pinball at Carolina Arcade, or enjoy a steak at Copper Penny Grill.
Farther out, you can zip-line through the forest at Lake Lure, float/kayak the Rocky Broad river, rock-climb or hike to Chimney Rock, or tour many award-winning vineyards and wineries (some just minutes away).
My husband and I (and our 5 children) will be on site living at the main house most of the time as well as working around the land.
Our goal with this land is to create a place that embodies the things that we've found to truly make us happy and allow a better lives for ourselves.
Like getting back to nature, living off the land, meditation, and inner healing. Eating whole real foods. Exercising and moving our bodies. Nourishing ourselves. And having a space to allow for community and connection.
Our vision started a few years ago when my husband Aaron and I both shared an image of a new world we wanted to create - one filled with self-sufficient, sustainable communities where people live more simply and love each other.
In 2014 we left our "normal" lives, hand-built a 100% off-grid tiny home together and lived in it for 5 years. We began to eat real food and use real resources - the land, animals, rain water, compost, solar.
But as we spent more time diving into ourselves, God, business, coaches, and many other holistic practices, we realized it was time for a big change.
We now want to be able to offer experiences sharing everything we've learned about all these things and have people come try new ways of life.
When you stay with us the cool part is, you can actually see where your money is going and meet the people creating the space. A large portion of what we make is going right back into this land.
This isn't some fancy resort owned by a huge hotel chain. Although we do take serious pride in our work and go above and beyond when building.
We've been told that this is one of the most peaceful, rejuvenating, and relaxing experiences guests have ever had.
Please remember that the tent sites are off-grid and plan accordingly. Please bring everything you need to have the kind of stay you want (such as extra battery-powered fans, flashlights, etc).
Inside your tent you'll find battery & solar-powered string lights, one small battery-powered fan, and a small library of books.
Firewood available for $5 a bundle.
Please no smoking on the premises. This is strictly prohibited.
If you'd like to bring your furry friend, please send us a message request.
If you have any questions about coming to stay with us please don't hesitate to reach out and ask!
We're a Christian husband and wife team, and we're excited to host you!
Please park near the "guest parking" sign, in front of the house in the grass by the woods on the right. It's a short walk to your tent.
Our private residence is on the left side of the 6 acre property, so we're easily available, but you'll be able to enjoy plenty of space.
Access the communal spa any time!
Don't be deceived when you pull in - it looks like a normal house with a short driveway. All the magic is happening in the back. ;)
Parking is to the right of the driveway on the grass, immediately after you pull in.
I am easily in touch by message. We're usually hanging out around the property building up the campground (unless we tell you otherwise).
