Before the Kerr Scott Reservoir was built, in the 40's and 50's, this neighborhood was a local swimming hole and vacation area. Public buses came from neighboring communities so people could boat, swim, camp, and picnic. While we don't have access to the pond, our part of this land still is calling out to people, 'Come, rest, unload your burdens, and find peace.' When we started this project with Hipcamp, we didn't fully realize that we were reconnecting with the history on this property. So, come, take your shoes off, and wade in the creek. Read a book while laying in a hammock. Sit by the fire and chat with family and friends. Come and participate in our little homesteading project, and leave your burdens behind. LOCAL ACTIVITIES: To the west is the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is 30 minutes away. 15 minutes away is Kerr Scott Dam where you can rent kayaks, pontoon boats, as well as other sporting equipment. Fish, go mountain biking on the extensive trails, and hiking. Prayer Mountain is right up the road, about 2 miles away. Heading east, you can find several fine wineries andvineyards that you can visit. There is also a moonshine distillery in town. About a half hour away is an Amish community that has several businesses open to the public, including the Shiloh Bakery and General Store. They are closed on Sunday and Monday. To the northeast, about 45 minutes away, is Stone Mountain. Absolutely fantastic hiking, it is also an old homestead that has been renovated and is open to the public. To the south, there is Rocky Face Park, where there is hiking and rock climbing. Nearby, is Emerald Hollow Mine, where you can go and find, and keep, precious stones you find in the nearby river. There is also a great disk course course, Highland Hills Disc Golf Course, one of the top 25 in the country. There is fun for all ages. Merlefest, the last weekend of April, is a world class Bluegrass festival, is located right in our town. Be sure to look at the activities section below for additional information.

Bird's Nest Over Peaceful Pastures
Relaxing and peaceful
My husband and I stayed at The Nest Over Peaceful Pastures for the weekend and LOVED it!! Everything was set up and ready to go for us so we could just relax. Elizabeth met us to show us around and how to get fresh water, shower, etc. It was just the retreat we needed and can't wait to get back with our kids!!

Bird's Nest Over Peaceful Pastures
This place is amazing!!!! Beautiful quiet stay close enough to home, yet far enough out to get away. Elizabeth was amazing. She met us upon arrival, and gave us the grand tour. Great place to go and get away with plenty of the outdoor essentials already on site. The birds nest was a treat. Cozy and comfortable. THANKS AGAIN!!!!!

Liz was such a wonderful host! Our cabin had everything we could have needed and more. She has thought of everything! My daughters and nieces loved playing in the stream and being outside. We will be back as soon as possible!

Happy Hillside Tent & Hammock Camp
Wonderful Stay
This was our first time camping in NC and it could not have been more perfect. Even though it was a hot day it was several degrees cooler at the actual camp spot. There was a creek to cool off in as well. Our favorite part of the stay was seeing fireflies for the first time in our life! It was so magical! We absolutely want to come back in the future.
