We really enjoyed our stay. The property was as described. We enjoyed hanging out on the porch. The donkeys ( Bonnet & Mason) would come by from time to time to see what we were doing and to see if we had any treats for them. The donkeys were very friendly. Very quiet and relaxing property. We would definitely stay again when in the area.

Perfect place for a quiet getaway
We've been traveling through the south for about 6 weeks. Good Karma was the place we've been looking for, exactly perfect! The trailer was cozy, the property was lovely. Lee and Lisa were perfect hosts. We took Lisa's bee tour and were captivated both by the bees and by Lisa's enthusiasm and knowledge. The donkeys were the frosting on the cake. If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly stay again.

Perfect Getaway
This place was perfect for a nice getaway. It was very peaceful and the owners were very caring and thoughtful. This BNB has everything you need and the bed was super comfortable. There was firewood available for us so we were able to make s'mores :) The donkey treats were a great touch and enabled us to become best friends with the donkeys. The bee tour is a MUST! So cool. This was the highlight of our stay. We also really enjoyed the picnic basket made by Leta. Overall, we highly recommend this place for a great relaxing stay. Stephen and Gabrielle

I will definitely be back!
My relaxing retreat at Good Karma was everything I hoped it would be! Adorably decorated camper, great deck to relax on . The donkeys were so much fun to interact with, they visited me often at the deck for their treats. Strolled around the property with Bonnet and Mason looking at the different wildflowers.Grilled my dinner both nights on the awesome grill. Loved reading books and taking naps on the covered deck with the sound of the rain on the tin roof. Everything was very clean and comfortable. And of course the homemade banana bread and honey gifts were greatly appreciate it, and delicious!

The perfect getaway
Lee + Lisa have an absolutely PERFECT setup for a little R&R. Immediately upon arrival you are welcomed by the world's greatest (and cutest) donkey greeters Bonnett and Mason. The decor is perfect from the moment you step on to the front porch and it is so inviting! There was a bag of donkey treats for me to spoil B+M, a sample of the Karma acres Gallberry honey, and some absolutely scrumptious banana bread and blueberry lemon muffins. The morning after my arrival I got to participate in the Bee tour and my goodness Lisa is a WEALTH of knowledge. I never realized how fascinating bees are, and how intricate their ecosystem is! Later in the day I got to enjoy honey from around the world and a lovely cheese spread on the front porch with Lee + Lisa and could have spent all night chatting with them had it not been so chilly! After the tour I cozied up next to one last fire while B+M made the occasional appearance hoping for snacks. Mornings and nights are quiet and peaceful and this space will provide the perfect reset and recharge. Thank you Lee + Lisa for this absolutely incredible experience!

You get to pet donkeys. <3
Fun and relaxing weekend spent grilling, petting donkeys, and sampling different types of honey. The location is easy to get to in whatever you drive, and the camper is fully stocked. Lisa and her husband are super nice, was a very welcoming and relaxing environment. We opted for the honey tasting package: Delicious samplers of honey's I didn't know existed and fun conversation. Also got to pet a pug. :) Excellent experience, definitely recommend.

Bee-autiful and Restorative Stay
This was my first HipCamp experience and it was wonderful! I could’ve spent Thanksgiving alone with my dog at home but decided to find someplace and found Karma Acres Farm. The camper is cozy and fully-equipped with everything you need. The bed is super comfortable and the water is hot. It’s dog-friendly and the porch is perfect for sitting and listening and seeing the world go by, like butterflies, birds, bees, gopher tortoises and the resident donkeys. The donkeys welcomed me upon arrival and I saw and interacted with them daily. They are very sweet and curious. There was homemade muffins and breakfast bread and water waiting for me in the refrigerator. The hosts are fantastic and knowledgeable about their honeybees and honey. The bee theme throughout the camper is sweet. This was an experience I’ll always fondly remember.

A Peaceful Retreat
We had a great time and Lisa was a great host - lots of little details were taken care of - from muffins and cookies upon check-in to an extra toothbrush and bug spray (it’s Florida). Remote enough place vet civilization near enough to go get breakfast and fresh seafood. Kayaking in nearby Four Creeks State Park was excellent - flat water with trees overhanging the creek and wild sunflowers everywhere; a nature photographer’s dream. Had a great time overall and would recommend.

Disconnected in nature
We really enjoyed our stay at Karma Acres Bee Farm. The Bee Tour was super informative and engaging. We came here for a week of rest and relaxation, away from the hustle & bustle of our on call lives in Atlanta. This location was a great place to turn off our phones and disconnect from the rest of the world. We enjoyed our morning walks on the country roads, afternoon naps (for Josh), reading and playing games outside on the porch. Disconnecting from society helped us connect with each other and nature. Mason & Bonnet made sure we were doing okay by checking in every couple of hours. Highlights: Amelia Island & Fernandina Beach, roadside fresh produce, the rain on the tin roof. Lee & Lisa thank you for all the small touches - blueberry muffins, chocolates on the pillows, teas & coffee for breakfast AND how did you get that banana bread to stay delicious and moist so long? If given the opportunity, try the Meade. We've already recommended this location - sight unseen - but will tell everyone about our experience. We would love to return again.

It was quite quiet. A nice country setting. we spent more time scouting the area and finding beaches than actually staying at camp. But the time we were at camp we were comfortable and enjoyed being there. Lee and Lisa were good hosts. Lee showed up to greet us and Lisa had made a wonderful welcome basket. We will probably use Hip Camp again in the future.

Very quiet and peaceful. Neat, clean and well kept. Donkeys were fun to watch and feed the provided treats to. Not far to Calahan for groceries. An enjoyable retreat. Dan and Wendy.

This place was amazing!!
Good Karma Honey Bee BnB Farm exceeded my expectations in every way. I stayed here as a 1/2 way point between Nc and south FL. It was peaceful, private, safe, and clean. The stay was so nice that I booked it again on my way back from my trip. There are two incredibly sweet donkeys who show up for treats. The hosts were very helpful and accommodating.... They even left muffins, cookies, honey, coffee, and water for me. I loved this place and would stay again!

Quiet retreat
Lisa’s place was cozy and quiet, exactly what we were looking for! She and her husband had thoughtful surprises waiting upon our arrival and were very pleasant. The place was clean and tidy and looked like they had invested thought and time into the decor and upkeep of the facility. Nothing about this place looked like an afterthought! They were available as needed and didn’t make us feel as though we were imposing. We enjoyed our bee tour and getting to meet their donkeys as well. I would stay here again!

This is IT
My favorite hipcamp so far...for so many reasons... The peace and quiet, the friendly donkeys, the home cooked muffins, the just-light-it campfire, the cleanliness, the comfy deck furniture, the Fab gas grill.... The bouquet of fresh flowers, the comfy bed... The HONEY... What a spectacular experience.

Came for the bees, fell in love!
Absolutely adored our stay at Good Karma! We had a reservation for one night, planning to head on the next morning, and we liked it so much we stayed all weekend. Excellent amenities- immaculately clean camper, stocked fire pit including Smores, AC inside with a fan in the bedroom, grill on a covered patio with chaise chairs for an afternoon nap- Lisa has thought of it all and provided it for you! On top of everything else, it's adorably decorated in a bee theme and could not be cuter. Very much enjoyed meeting Lisa and Lee, and having a tour of the bee set up really made it unique. My first time wearing bee keeping gear! Lisa was also able to accommodate our late arrival after a long drive. Would highly recommend a stay for anyone!
