A high elevation working farm with a cabin (sleeps up to 8), barn with hayloft and tent sites for rent by individuals and small groups. Located at 3,500 feet in elevation on north flank of Roan Mountain. Three miles from the Appalachian Trail, five miles to Buladean, North Carolina and a 40-minute drive to Carvers Gap, our 18-acre, high elevation, wooded and meadowed Christmas tree farm is a wonderful jumping-off point for some of the best hiking, apple picking, and bird watching the Southeast has to offer.  Unplug during your stay while you soak in the mountain views, peaceful sunsets, and local wildlife.  Our guests love staying here: "Loved it. A thoroughly beautiful building in an equally beautiful location. It had everything we needed and more. We'd planned to use the cabin as a base to go hiking from but it was so beautiful there that we ended up not leaving for the entire time - we just stayed and watched the hummingbirds on the balcony. Will look forward to returning."

The Shack at Creag Creek Farm
We enjoyed our stay at the shack. As described, beautiful property, close to Carvers Gap and other trails. Hosts were very informative and accommodating! Would recommend!

The Shack at Creag Creek Farm
Peace and quiet in the woods
We camped at the shack with our 5 and 8 year old boys and had such a great time! The property is beautiful and peaceful, you can see so many stars here at night. We opted to pitch our tent near the shack (which Joyce graciously ok’d) and there was quite a bit of rain forecasted that weekend so the porch area for cooking and hanging out in, as well as the interior of the shack for playing games was key, for us! There’s no campground map included in the listing so just so you know, sharing the 17 acres with the shack is a cabin (maybe 1/4 mile away) and two tent sites (1/8 mile up the hill) in the shape of a triangle (with the shack being one point, the cabin another and the tent sites and shared bathroom the third point). The cabin is uphill from the shack and due to the shape of the land we could hear the folks staying there quite clearly at times hanging out on the deck, even if we couldn’t see them for the beautiful old apple tree between us. The walk to the shared bathhouse is short, the composting toilet was simple and clean, and the open-air shower (which was not at all warm, I have to say) was fun and refreshing for our family! We spent our days hiking at Roan Mountain and visiting nearby Elk River Falls, the whole area is just beautiful, and Joyce provided a document with recommendations on arrival day (a cold draft beer at The Station after a day of hiking was icing on the cake, thanks for that suggestion!). We really enjoyed our time, and will definitely be back!!

Meadow Views at Creag Creek Farm
We loved camping here, it was beautiful and we got the best camping experience. I would have liked if the campsites were maintained a little more as well with the bath house. There was a wasp nest right over the toilet and the grass was a little tall. Other than that we loved and enjoyed this campsite

Meadow Views at Creag Creek Farm
Quiet and Peaceful Meadow View
We enjoyed our time on Joyce's land in mid-July 2022! The meadow views were gorgeous and we enjoyed the apple trees, wild blackberries, and walking through the butterfly field up the hill on the property. The location was peaceful and quiet, near Roan Mountain. The outside showers and bath house was nice and clean. Joyce was also very friendly and her directions were clear. A wonderful spot for our weekend getaway!

The Cabin at Creag Creak Farm
We had a fabulous time at the cabin over a long weekend stay. Even though it was super hot outside, the cabin stays pretty cool since it's situated on the side of the mountain and surrounded by trees most of the day. At night, we had a beautiful view of the stars and used the telescope to check them out. Our boys enjoyed exploring around the area and loved the scenery. The porch is a great place to hang out, read, and enjoy the breeze, even in the rain! The kitchen has all the stuff you need, the hot water was wonderful, the library has an excellent selection, and there were some fun movies and games. What a great little gem tucked into the mountainside. Don't forget to grab some farm fresh eggs down the road, too!

The Shack at Creag Creek Farm
The Shack was a great stay! Quiet, serene, and relaxing. I'd recommend any stay on Joyce's land depending on what you're looking for. I stayed in the Shack by myself and had a great time.
