I recently purchased this property from the estate of Robert Masters, 2013. Mr. Master's and his family lived on this property since 1957 in the small red brick house at the road. He raised chickens and cattle. The cows are the reason this property looks the way it does with it's magnificent trees. I suspect this piece of property has had cattle on it for 100+ years. Mr. Masters worked at the Historic Habersham Mill down the road as did many of the locals. This is a working farm . I have named the farm, Sole Farm. (Sole is Italian for Sun) The house on the hill, my home, is the Villa del Sole. I look forward to having you come and enjoy this beautiful piece of land I call home. Learn more about this land: COVID-19: None of the camp sites are even in sight of one another. The sights are large enough so that you and your fellow campers can social distance from one another. I certainly respect your wishes and will social distance while packing you into your site with the tractor.  You will pull into 495 Habersham Mill Rd, Green Shutter Cottage. There is a gravel drive that goes down behind Green Shutters Cottage. I will pick you up there with the tractor to pack you in and I will pack you out as well. Vehicles are NOT allowed on the property. You WILL get stuck.  A breathtaking view of the distant mountains greets you as you come on to the property as well as the majestic Villa del Sole, a Tuscan style villa on top of the hill, my home. The land drops away into rolling pastures dotted with ancient trees, some 300+!. The woodlands are filled with wildlife that surround the property where you are completely isolated from the world. There are two creeks that border each side of the property and join together and flow into Lake Habersham then into the Soque, the top trophy trout stream in the southeast. The water in these streams is pure. Please respect this and bring Earth friendly soap for washing dishes. I recommend Dr. Bonner's Pure castile soap. There is a creek by each camp site.  Behind the property is 110 acs of woodlands and fields down to Lake Habersham.  The Woodland sites and the Meadow both have streams, fire pits, benches and latrines. I will pack you into and out of your site with the tractor. I do not allow vehicles on the property. You can walked to the sites if you like. I do welcome well behaved dogs. I have two that live here with me, Buster and Rufus.  Depending on where you want to camp there are three possible campsites to choose from: The Meadow, 2 to 24 campers and, The Woodland site, 2 to 8, The Head Waters, 2 to 6 campers.  The Head Waters site is down next to the creek and next to a meadow, very secluded, no latrine. The Meadow is best for larger groups of 8 or more. It is is a medium size meadow with flat ground suitable for spacing a number of tents out. There is a fire pit, grill/grate and three benches. It also has a creek and a latrine. The Woodland site is suitable for 2 to 8 campers but is a bit limited on places to pitch tents. It too has a fire pit, grill/grate, benches, kitchen prep table and a latrine. It is by far the prettiest site right next to the creek. It's possible to sit in the creek in areas during hot weather(shallow water and COLD!. You are not completely disconnected from the world here(WIFI) but far enough away to feel isolated and private. In the bottoms, you are nestled in the woods and can see nothing around you but forest, not even the Villa and not the other campers in the meadow. You see no neighbors, houses, lights, etc. Stargazing from on top of the hill is not to be missed. I recommend Sky Watch app. Clarkesville is close by. Ingles is close by for forgotten supplies or a Starbucks fix. This is a small town, rural area, quiet and slow. There is plenty more to do if you just want Sole Farm camp as a base. Tallulah Gorge is 20 minutes to the north and hiking at Panther Creek. Habersham County does not have liquor except by the drink in restaurants. Beer and wine are sold at Ingles. The closest liquor store is in Mount Airy 25 mins, $10 more a bottle. Many good hiking opps are close by, waterfalls, thrifting. The Chattahoochee is good for canoeing, kayaking and swimming. There are several stables that offer trail rides close by. You are allowed to walk all over the property using the mown paths but please respect the other campers and my privacy. I will be respecting yours.

Our host was very accommodating and the property was beautiful. Riding on the tractor is an enjoyable way to see the land. He gave us a nice brief tour of the place and was very kind.

The perfect retreat
We had the best time at Sole Farm! Brooks is an amazing host and the whole process was extremely smooth. We messaged Brooks when we arrived and he helped transport all our camping gear to an amazing clearing by a creek. It was quiet and picturesque, and our two boys had a perfectly memorable time. We will be back!

We enjoyed staying on Brooks's property! It is close to town but feels very remote. Brooks was very friendly and it was helpful to have him take our gear back to our site with his tractor. We had three dogs that loved running around the campsite. Would stay here again!

What an awesome camping experience! Brooks is such a nice person and his property is beautiful. He was so welcoming, knowledgeable, and great with our 3 year old (who loved riding on the tractor)! We will be planning a trip back here soon!

We booked this site with two other couples and 5 boys under 5. The kids loved the space and playing in the creek. Brooks was very responsive before we traveled to the site, and he sat down and chatted with us for a bit when we arrived. Enjoyed some lovely walks around the property and our brief escape from the city.

Brooks was an incredibly gracious host. His land is beautiful, and we felt far removed from town (even though you’re only a 5-10 minute drive from anything you’ve forgotten). Our kids roamed free and enjoyed exploring somewhere we didn’t have to worry about dozens of other campers and campsites. Thanks!

Great overnight by the creek!
My son and I spent one night at the creek side camp. Beautiful and peaceful. Saw 2 deer grazing at sunset. We went to bed early and I thought I was seeing a light through the tent—I opened the tent flap and the hillside was “alive” with fireflies. So magical! There is a also a great breakfast place down the road we hit on the way out of town. Brooks is a gracious man with a beautiful property.

Truly, a wonderful experience
A fantastical place to get away from all of life’s worries for a couple of days. The land is awe inspiring, and seeping with stories. Brooks was an excellent host, and his kindness and humble advice made our experience all the better. I couldn’t recommend him enough, and I will be back again!

Magic & full of beauty
We had such a special and beautiful visit to Sole Farm. This is a magical place, with so much beauty to soak up and enjoy. Brooks is a kind and gracious host. He is also incredibly knowledgable...we learned about biodynamic farming, hummingbird migration and more. Brooks is definitely a steward of this land and his love makes the place all the more shiny, intriguing and lovely. Can't say enough good things...it was a bumpy and muddy tractor ride in but worth it to be by the creek watching the light come through the trees. Thank you Brooks...we loved meeting you and the pups.

Had the best weekend staying here! Perfectly secluded and Brooks was entirely accommodating. Loved going to sleep hearing the creek and you're also right next to downtown Clarkesville. Perfect base to explore the entire area, can't wait to stay again!

Absolutely Breathtaking
Brooks Garcia is one of the most attentive hosts you could ask for! He has a WEALTH of knowledge about many different topics but most of all about his farm. The area is breathtaking and there are so many places to explore, photograph, birdwatch, and even do a little fishing! This gem is only 10 minutes from Clarksville where there are fantastic restaurants and antique shopping. We had such a fun weekend at Sole Farm

Gorgeous secluded campsite
Host was very communicative; easy reservation process. I booked a few days ahead of time with no problems. The woodland campsite was gorgeous. Everything you'd want in a campsite- secluded, beautiful, restful. We packed in our own water and were able to filter from the stream for refills. 20 min drive to nearby hikes. We had an amazing weekend.

We had a great visit at the farm. We stayed in the meadows and enjoyed it. Our dog is solid black so some shade is important to us. The meadows was a perfect combination of shade & sun. We had two nice nights of stargazing. Brooks is a great host who is helpful but gives you your privacy too. We would highly recommend a visit to his farm. It’s near modern conveniences but you can easily feel off grid and connected to nature.

Peaceful Seclusion in City
This campsite is a perfect getaway right in town, close enough to the store but far enough to be surrounded in the forest and away from the city noise! Host is extremely helpful and you will have a blast on his beautiful property!

Great Fall Outing
Great spot! Our campground was secluded, had plenty of resources, and fairly well equipped. Brooks was very helpful, communicative, and responsive. Wonderful site for stargazing on a clear night. Lots of good praise for this experience. There was a good amount of poison ivy at our spot, so keep a good eye where you step! We'll be back, for sure.

Amazing campsite
Brooks was an amazing host. Loved his ingenuity and passion for gardening. He has this beautiful peace of land where you can get lost amongst the stars in the clear sky in the night. Hear the crickets, coyotes and all the wildlife in one safe and secure place. Overall it was an amazing stay.

We had a large group camp for the weekend, and the site had plenty of room. The host was kind and welcoming. The property is beautiful, and there is a nice large hill we really enjoyed stargazing on. We would certainly love to come back and stay here in the future.

Everything we hoped for!
Our stay at The Woods at Sole Farm was perfect! We had no trouble getting there and our host Brooks was ready to greet us upon our arrival. He brought us to our site and then left us to enjoy ourselves. Both prior to our arrival and while there Brooks was very responsive when we needed to communicate. We would definitely stay here again and I recommend this site to anyone looking to stay in a private and beautiful location.

10/10 would recommend!
Brooks was an incredible host! He and his dog Buster met us at the parking area and packed us into the site with his tractor. We’re a queer couple with a dog and we felt very welcomed and safe! The land was GORGEOUS, rolling grassy hills, huge ancient trees, a clear and cold creek - paradise! We camped at a site on the creek, it felt secluded and cozy. We enjoyed our campfire and the stars at night! 10/10 would recommend and we plan to come back with our whole family next time. Thanks Brooks for a fantastic getaway from city life and for sharing your slice of Heaven with us!!

Even more of a gem than expected!
Me, my wife, and our golden retriever stayed here for one night at the Woodland site (campsite #2 when booking). First, Brooks might be the most welcoming host we’ve ever had at any Hipcamp, AirBnB, or similar. He met us when we arrived and the entrance even has a small sign identifying that you’re at the right path. Brooks graciously carried out camping supplies to our site on the tractor and provided us an overview of the property. All three of the campsites on the property are completely private from one another as well. I can’t recommend this Hipcamp enough. We will be back!

Private, pretty campsite
My friends and I enjoyed our stay at The Woods At Sole Farm! Brooks was very helpful and we appreciated him showing us around the campsite and nearby meadow, as well as moving our gear to and from the site via his tractor. We stayed at the creekside location and it was very private and pretty. We went to the meadow for stargazing after dark, which was beautiful. Thanks, Brooks!

My second time at Sole Farm!
My friend had booked Sole Farm 3 years ago for our group to see the solar eclipse. Now that the weather is gorgeous, finding a camp site at a state park has been challenging. I'm so glad I reserved a spot on Brooks's Sole Farm! Brooks was super quick at responding and so accommodating for our group of 10. Our site (a new one) was very clean and enough space for us. Would love to see it more cleared out in the future as there were a lot of tall grasses. We will probably come back a third time!
