Tucked up in the holler, this wooded property offers beautiful Mountain View’s. There’s a fire pit, hammocks and hot tub to add to your relaxations in nature. It’s close to the blue ridge parkway, only a short drive to town for any of the various offerings. If your looking for a wooded camping spot with a few modern luxuries then this is the place.Pitch your tent anywhere you’d like in the forest of pine,oak and maple trees. There is also an elevated platform to set up camp if you’d prefer to be off the ground, the dimensions are roughly 8x10. You can also enjoy the hammocks, tire swing and hot tub. You’ll have the option of setting up closer to the fire pit or if you’d like more privacy you may choose to go further into the woods. In the mornings you can wake up with Pico the rooster or sleep as long as you like. There is also a greenhouse and garden space. Only 15 mins from Downtown, hiking and rafting. Mind you this is a working homestead so therefore if you’re looking for a more pristine experience please look elsewhere.

Loud dogs
Unfortunately my already late flight was delayed. Ended up arriving around 2 am. We tried to set up... and the amount of dogs barking was overwhelming. I don't know if I had gotten there earlier if the dogs would have been calmer. We didn't make it an hour there. It looked like the view would be absolutely amazing with the sun out.

Dogs barking all night and morning
I had to climb a literal mountainside to get to the tent platform. Platform was not large enough for my tent. So there was no way to make it waterproof. There were no steps up to the platform and the lowest point was over 3 ft off the ground. The campfire pit was full of wet Ash and it was impossible to keep the fire lit. The hot tub was fantastic. And there were barking dogs in every direction that lasted almost the entire night. Definitely through the wee hours of the morning. I left after one night of sleeping there because I could not sleep at all. I had booked an entire week. I assumed the host would have refunded my reservation. I would not recommend this location.
