Selected by Outside Magazine as their Favorite Hipcamp in North Carolina and a Hipcamp Finalist in N.C. 2020, 2021, and 2022 and runner up best treehouse in 2023, we offer both a woodsy, peaceful experience with million dollar views in an 6 person tent as well as an incredible Treehouse right down the street. Each is all yours - this is not a commercial campground. Explore the innumerable trails and waterfalls of the Smokies; fish in the Lake or numerous rivers and streams; swim in the Lake and at the sand beach down the road; rent a pontoon boat; travel the Blue Ridge Parkway; enjoy the shopping and restaurants of nearby Cashiers and Highlands. Or just chill out. These are truly unique high altitude sites with amenities you won't find elsewhere. Both are in a gated "subdivision" that has 60 lots but only 8 houses - the rest is woods and the only place in your vicinity is our cabin. With unmatched mountain and western views, if you like the great outdoors on the mountain and in the woods, This is the place for you. Rain? Nocturnal wildlife? Don't like tents? No problem. Check out our Treehouse. Totally enclosed, WC, Shower, bunk beds, futon, TV, heated, internet , kitchen, grill, induction cooktop, fridge and more. Walkie-talkies to facilitate mountain communications. Board games too. Access to our dock, canoes and kayak? Yep. Adult life preservers provided.

Our goal is to provide you and your family with an unforgettable and magical N.C. mountain experience, while reducing your blood pressure.

Super cute Treehouse
We had a great time as a family. The view was amazing. The tree house had everything we needed (well equipped) and it was beautiful. Peter was very helpful and easy to contact.

Don’t Hesitate to Book!!
My college friend, Terri, and I had a fabulous weekend at Peter’s Hipcamp. Views were stunning and he’s been very intentional with the planning of the space. Mattresses on the bunks were comfy and the heaters were toasty. We had a little issue with microwave working and he had a new one there the next morning! And he even gave me half a dozen fresh eggs from his chickens, with which I made a fabulous omelet. Peter was very communicative and had excellent instructions re: operating the water. He has a great book of suggestions of things to do and suggested a hike close by for us with phenomenal views. If you’re thinking of booking this spot, don’t hesitate. You won’t be disappointed! It’s the very best Hipcamp I’ve experienced. 🏕️ I’m already planning another trip with my kids.

October trip
The Glenview tree house was fabulous. It was a cross between camping and staying in the cabin. The view was spectacular something you don’t wanna miss. We watched the sunset, and then we got up very early to watch the sunrise, and will do it again in a heartbeat. The hosts were amazing and wonderful people. A great place to sit back and relax. Paul

Smoky Mountain High (4100')
Very nice place, great views and Pete and his wife were very friendly, you basically in their back yard (you can see their house from the camping place) but that didn’t bother us at all, very relaxed trip, Pete has a water fountain and you can hear the water running while you relax in your chair looking at a great views, I love it.
