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 Cabin at Creag Creak Farm
The cabin on this farm was great. It was very clean and well appointed- perfect for our family of five. We all enjoyed the quiet to relax, explored the farm, and the kids loved playing on the rocks by the cabin. Joyce was very responsive to questions. I recommend it as a great getaway.

Incredible views at and leading up to the site. We went at the perfect time too, with the fall colors at their peak in the second week of October.

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

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 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.

Tranquility at Creag Creek Farm!
Supremely restorative, serene, and pastorally beautiful describes our stay at Creag Creek Farm. During our stay at Creag Creek Farm, my husband and I lodged in the cabin on the property. It was meticulously cleaned, well-furnished, and stocked with everything we could possibly want for a tranquil mini-vacation. Our host, Joyce, did an amazing job at making this cabin feel like a true home away from home; she even stocked the fridge with some unexpected treats and baking essentials. We felt so well taken care of. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, Joyce! The spacious deck adjoined to the cabin was perfect for relaxing and outdoor dining. From that elevated vantage point, we could spot turkey ambling in the adjacent pasture; and, several hummingbirds whizzed by intermittently to partake in the bounty of deck-perched bird- feeders. As the sun began to set, my husband and were treated to a bouquet of vibrant colors playing on the expansive view of pastureland and the sweeping, mountain vista. It was a perfect way to end the day. If you are searching for a quiet refuge that is both therapeutic and inspiring, we highly recommend staying at Creag Creek Farm. It easily ranks as one of our best-loved Hipcamps. Thank you for sharing your bucolic paradise with us, Joyce! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Creag Creek Farm, and deeply appreciate your genuine hospitality.

The cabin was very nice! The kitchen was fully functional, the living room included a variety of movies and books, and the hot water heater worked very effectively! The fire pit is about a 2 minute hike further up beyond the cabin and has a nice atmosphere with a bench. The porch was also wonderful with some bird feeders; we even saw a hummingbird in the morning! Definitely recommend this stay for a refreshing, remote experience! Thank you!

Nice site. Rocks on tent pads are large and sharp so recommend bringing something the lay on tent floor. We stayed for a week. Enjoyed the outdoor shower. Owner not real responsive to questions about the area. Could definitely use some information on where trash locations are. But overall a great base camp location for surrounding sites. Extremely glad I read the reviews and brought a cart to haul out stuff to the site! It's a little hump with all the gear.

Let The Cabin Surround You In Peace
The cabin at Creag Creak was just as I expected and more. More quiet, more secluded, more private, more peaceful, more of the desire to not want to leave. My husband and I went to get away and that we did. We never saw another soul, which was exactly what we needed. We completely unplugged and enjoyed the serenity. On the outside the Cabin gives you the authentic look and feel of many houses we remember that no longer exist and unfortunately have been lost over time. On the inside, you found a cabin feel, but modern comfort. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was all you needed and nicely stocked in case you forgot anything. The living room and dining room case you two options for heat, depending on your desire. A wood stove or a heating unit. Last, but not least, the kitchen was well stocked with everything from cast iron pans to pots, spices, and a refrigerator that made you feel at home to anything in it. We made a country breakfast and a steak dinner along with the help of the gas grill outside. The view from the front porch was amazing. We hit peak weekend for the foliage and could not have been more pleased just To sit and take it all end. After watching the mountains turn into fire as the sunset, we made our way inside and watched movies from the selection.. The fire pit is just a 2 minute walk up the path and has an incredible view as well. We will be back.

Serene Roan highlands retreat
I had a wonderful stay at Creag Creek Farm. The campsite is serene and peaceful and a great home base for exploring the Roan highlands. Joyce provided lots of helpful details before my stay including excellent directions to the property and some useful information about the surrounding area. I would happily stay here again.

Clouds Came to the Cabin
Like the shire! What a stunning view/s. Cabin porch faces North so you can get a great panorama of the sun rising & setting. We happened to stay 5 nights straight along with 5 days of straight rain & clouds. Made it feel like we were living in the clouds (or the shire, wouldn’t have been surprised to have a hobbit show up at the door). Caught a magic ray of sun that spilled out over the mountain sides on the way out. Can’t say we saw them…but the view of the the stars is no doubt priceless. We found the beauty in those moody mountains. The host family was fantastic. They repaired a very random spring water salamander clog issue with proper urgency and follow up. Great art and well stocked kitchen. GREAT kitchen to cook in! Joyce certainly lends a lovely and very tasteful touch to the aesthetic and decor of this very special cabin. We’re totally going back for those Stars.

We had a wonderful time at Creag Creek Farm. Joyce is a wonderful host. She is very responsive, and even left us a bottle of wine and fresh flowers upon arrival! The cabin is so beautiful and very clean. The view from the front deck is truly breathtaking. If you stay during the summer, keep in mind there is no air. They will provide fans, but I recommend bringing a few of your own as well. We loved the collection of DVD's and all got hooked on Northern Exposure. We also traveled into Tennessee to The Station at 19E. They had a ton of beer choices and it offered a really cool atmosphere. We were not ready to come home! Thanks Joyce for the wonderful weekend get away!

The Creag Creek Cabin was the perfect Appalachian retreat. The views from the cabin with its large porch are spectacular and some of the best hiking in the southeast is a half hour drive away. The cabin itself is much bigger than it seems in the pictures and is equipped with everything you need and more. We loved the wood burning stove, the grill, the spring fed tap, the old school VHS collection, the loft, and the happy cows next door! Can't wait to come back

Location and property are nice, good spot for open skies. Come prepared, tent form is made with large stones (not pea gravel or crushnrun) will want something to separate you above the ground

Fantastic Hipcamp location!
I led a group hiking at Linville Gorge and required a suitable place within an hour drive for whoever in the group wanted to camp. This spot was perfect! The property owners were polite and hospitable. Despite the weather not cooperating, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights at this Hipcamp. There were mountain vistas surrounding the site as well as accommodations that avid backpackers would consider more than adequate. The property had character, history and beauty. Highly recommend this location.
