In the 40's and 50's this spot was a local swimming hole and vacation area. Even 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, get some 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.

Suspended Sanctuary Tentsile Tree Tent
Elizabeth was very responsive whenever we had questions before camping and while at the site. Their property is gorgeous and we loved being able to play on the slack line and in the creek and walk the trails. Definitely pack light, but they make it easy - pretty much everything you need is provided. Just bring bedding and food. There were other campers at the other sites, but we couldn't hear them. Our site was very private and it was nice to know others were camping in the woods nearby. We fell IN LOVE with Seth, their black lab. He would come and visit us and say hello. Our son is a bit weary of dogs and he actually found Seth to be approachable and liked him! Overall a really nice trip, beautiful property, friendly hosts. The suspended tree tent was a lot of fun.

Relaxing in the Tree House
The tree house was lovely, it had the perfect amount of privacy. Elizabeth was a very welcoming hostess and she was very enthusiastic about making the property the best it could be for the campers out there. We had a great time.

Great for Nature Lovers (and Dogs)
My partner, my dog, and I had a great stay here. Tons of useful items and interesting locations on site that make it easier to pack less and still have a full experience (and more). We were surprised by the variety of things available, such as allergy medicine, which did come in handy when we weren't expecting it. If you want to hear about local flora and fauna, definitely ask. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable and eager to share. (:
