Once owned by a dairy farmer that had to relocate after a bad storm damaged everything. The farm was soon auctioned off into 5 tracts and eventually I purchased a vacant 10 acre tract in rolling hills of nelson county. 10 minutes from the Bourbon capital of the world. Also once voted most beautiful small town in America "Bardstown, KY."  Also the bourbon trail is within 15 min drive. Now the farm is our "Newtons Nook"

Nice and quiet!
Beautiful location and about 10 min from Jim Beam! Turning down the driveway is a little tight (we have a 2500 truck), but take your time and it's all good. Also great they had a trash bin! Great place to stay!

Dustin was a fantastic host. He really made us feel at home. I would 100% recommend staying here. It’s a fantastic pond front campsite. We used it for a guys trip while visiting the local distilleries.

Dustin was a great host. The site was quiet and private, but we were near Bardstown and some of the attractions that brought us to the area. Would definitely go back again.

Quiet Spot/Unlevel Ground
The space was nice and quiet. However, a lot smaller then the pictures depict. We only have a 16' basecamp travel trailer and making the left turn out of the small driveway was tough with the tree branches (not to scratch the trailer). I wouldn't want to be camping in a tent out there and have to go potty. The outhouse type building didn't have any toilet paper or even something to poop into. It was basically a chair with a hole in it but no hole in the ground or anything to catch it (weird!) and I am not squeamish about using the bathroom in the woods - setup just seemed weird to me. I wish I had taken a picture. Also note that the area around the small pond is very unlevel - so if you're in a camper, trailer or van you will need leveling blocks.

Simple. Easy. Fun!
Easy to find. Simple pull up and set up. Dustin is super nice. Even helped us jump our car that had a dead battery! Haha. We had plenty of room for a few tents, a whole family, and our pup to run around. Potty is primitive camping so either be prepared for that or will have to take a good drive down the road for number 2s. :)

Great place!
I had a great stay at Dustin’s! It was secluded and I felt very safe at all times. Lots of animals around. Dustin was also very friendly. I would recommend staying here.

This place was great! It’s very quiet except for the expected cows mowing and roosters calling out in the morning. The stars were amazing. The sunrise/sunsets around the pond were lovely. Dustin is an incredibly nice host. He helped get us a grate for grilling over the fire pit, and hung out with us for a bit one of the evenings. His dog, Kevin is the cutest and most cuddly dog ever. She came to say hi to us every evening and morning.

The site was pretty and well maintained with a fire pit, picnic table and garbage can. There is no privacy between the sites, which are pretty close together, but if you are not looking for seclusion, this is a great spot.

Great experience!
Just an overall great experience! We were in town for the Bourbon Festival and wanted a nice quiet place to rest at night. This was the perfect spot to kick up our feet. Tranquil, charming, and peaceful!

Great and peaceful location. There is one light a little ways off that stays on all night that would have been nice if it was off but great spot nonetheless. Well return. Host was quick to respond and friendly

Beautiful land. East access to fire pits and garbage can. Convenient to town but still away from it all. Awesome star gazing if the skies are clear. Bring a spinning rod, I caught 5 bass in about an hour.

AMAZING getaway just outside Lou!
Very beautiful & private… NO light pollution, a perfect spot in the City for stargazers. Bring Tiki Torches / Anti-Bug Gear for exterior of the tent. 10/10

Easy spot, just drove in, set up, and left. Never saw anyone which was nice because we were tired and it was nice not to have a meet and greet.

Great spot
I showed up really late in the evening and didn’t see anyone around. Found myself a fire ring, set up camp, and enjoyed the evening. Still asleep to the sound of rain on the tent and cows mooing somewhere in the distance.

This was a great place! My GPS was playing tricks on me but otherwise I think it would've been very easy to find. The host was so nice and helpful, he even came out to help me find the place when my GPS didn't work. The place is beautiful and calm and it felt very safe. I would definitely stay here again.

i was in Louisville vending at a flea market (2 day event) initially was gonna couchsurf with someone but realized that i needed to get out of town and get some peace and quiet. Dustins spot is a simple, beautiful space. exactly what i was looking for. would recommend, and would stay again. the sunset was incredible and the choir of night critters sung me to sleep.

I really enjoyed my stay at newtons nook! The host was very nice and provided firewood! The property is beautiful and feels very remote. I loved the pond and the wildflowers, and felt very safe as a solo female traveler! I will definitely come back if I'm ever in Kentucky!
