Jon is a Star Host
Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
The Shawnee National Forest surrounds us, accessible only by wandering roads, passing over creeks and alongside wineries. The trip is worth the beautiful drive, eventually arriving at "The Villa". Our home looks like an Italian villa, appropriately placed between two wineries in the middle of the Shawnee Forest. It is actually a straw-bale home with supplemental solar energy. Originally built as a Holistic Healing Center, we have converted it into a comfortable home with great vibes. We have converted an old grain bin into a "GrainZebo" just outside our home as a fun place to hang out with friends and family. We hope you enjoy the same relaxed feel we get while living out here in the woods, when you come visit. We will be happy to help you feel at home out here. We love sharing the Shawnee experience.

I’d never met a Hipcamp host upon arrival before, but as part of the WTW stay, Jon is waiting to welcome you. We really appreciated that! He’s done a lot to make WTW a really unique place. We stayed at the Grainzeebo, had a fire after setting up our tent and got a great nights sleep! I loved hearing all the frogs and coyotes during the night.

We have stayed here multiple times and it gets better every time. Make sure you check out Hickory Ridge Winery next door, and enjoy the peace and quiet of Jon & Carla’s property!

What more can I say that hasn't been. A true gem. If you're popping up one night or 20, you'll be happy.

Such a wonderful, welcoming place! The campsites are fantastic. We went to Pomoma natural bridge, did sampling at Pomoma winery, Hiked Little Grand Canyon, and sampled at Hickory Ridge winery. All within a short distance from Wine trail wildness. And then we received our first lesson in Bocce Ball. We will definitely be back! Jon and Carla, thanks for such an amazing weekend.

Peaceful Stay - perfect location!
Loved camping here for my late fall camping trip with my dog. We were the only campers on my first night, and a few more groups arrived in the campground on the 2nd night. Very peaceful and private campsite. I was a solo camper and felt very safe staying here. Jon is an excellent and kind host. He goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. Greeted me when I arrived and provided assistance with planning activities in the area. He also helped me with some car issues on our last day. I will definitely be back, and recommend camping here when visiting the Shawnee Wine Trail.
