The hosts are generous and welcoming, the property is beyond immaculate.. including the potra potty if you are worried. They have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We had planned to sight see in the area but once we got there we didnt want to leave. Grocery store is very close to the property so made it nice to run and get extra things and food. Would love to stay again. You don't want to miss this gem of a place.

Our weekend at the Pondside Tiny Cabin Retreat was awesome! The cabin had all of the essentials and then some! The hosts Carol and Ricky have thought of everything! The cabin was super cute with the glamping package. The pond was easy to get kayaks in and out of. I definitely recommend staying here!

The Tiny Cabin Retreat was perfect for a low-stress camping experience with my 8-year-old son. The cabin is well-constructed and adorable. We signed up for the "glamping" supplies and it made life really easy. We did bring our own coleman stove which made it easy to cook meals (and make coffee for mom). We also enjoyed the ATV tour of the property and spent time feeding the fish and exploring the nearby historic mill. Carol was a delightful host.

Keri and her son, Zachary were delightful guests. They left everything in great condition! We would definitely love to host them again in the future! A special thanks to Zachary for gathering more kindling for the wood pile! 💕

Perfect camping for people who aren’t good at camping-like me! Carol & Ricky were so friendly. We chose the “Glamping Package” and really appreciated the little touches-including two fans that kept us cool at night, cooking ware, portable chargers for our phones, tiki torches & candles that kept the bugs away, and even a sweet note to greet us! There is also a porta-potty on site, which was a pleasant surprise. My boyfriend loved being able to wake up and fish the pond outside, and the stargazing was to die for! We walked on their trail and then headed to the Blue Ridge Mountains for fishing and horseback riding. A great weekend retreat!

What a beautiful place, tucked away in a beautiful wooded area, and created and cared for with thoughtful attention to all the details! I stayed here for one night with my pup, Matilda, and I was so delighted to feel so welcomed by Carol, and to find all the comforts and amenities I needed. She even included a little bed for Matilda.

The spot is perfectly situated next to a pond, and the water captures gorgeous light at sunset and dawn. There is a nice trail around the pond, too, with lots of beautiful mushrooms of many colors and sizes (we visited in July).

I loved the personalized welcome sign, the pretty solar lights, the washing station (with warm water!) and picnic table, the fire circle with chairs, and overall the very clean, secure and adorable tiny house with a comfortable cot and chair.

Honestly, I'd be happy to just live there.

I should add, too, that I was traveling alone with my pup, but as a single woman, I felt perfectly safe here.

I just loved this place, and I highly recommend it! Carol is really lovely, too.

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Ricky and Carol’s Tiny Cabin at Smith Springs! Our family of four (and our German shorthaired pointer) brought our own tent and pitched it beside the tiny cabin. We had never pitched our own tent before, so this was a perfect “tester” site. We had the cots in the tent as backup, and since it rained overnight on our visit, the cabin was wonderful to have as far as rain cover and extra storage. The hosts could not have been more gracious and offered lots of choices/additions we did not use (fishing/ATV tour, etc) due to the forecast. However, my kids had a blast hiking around the pond, grilling, using the fire pit, etc before the rain came. Our pup is well behaved and comes back when called so he was allowed to be off leash, and loved exploring around the site. The port-a-potty and evening lighting (solar lights and Tiki torches) were wonderful bonuses. These hosts have thought of everything and I absolutely give the property 5 stars and have already recommended it to others!

It was a pleasure having Cammie & her family visit our Tint Cabin Retreat. She was so kind to share pix from their stay that captured the essence of what our Retreat is all about! I would love to have she and her family and doggie back anytime!!

Carol and Ricky were amazing hosts. They were extremely kind and willing to help with any requests or questions. I stopped in on a cross-country roadtrip and was only able to spend a night there. If I get the chance to visit again I will definitely be back for a longer stay. Lots of land to explore and relaxation to be had.

And for the birders out there - this was a great spot!
