This is a place to get away and enjoy nature but you aren't too far from a local grocery store, a few restaurants and a local park. If you are here for the beach, the closest beach and also our favorite is Cherry Grove Beach, only a 30 minute drive. There are a few kayak rental companies we can connect you to if you'd like and we know all the local spots for adventure, food and shopping. Pick a hammock and relax listening to the birds, we also have an outdoor kitchen to prepare food and community firepits to gather around. We want this to be a relaxing getaway, to connect with yourself, others and nature.Reconnect with nature at this unforgettable escape. Cozy up and settle in to our beautiful glamping tent. Here at The Fern we are all about the small details, from the glass you drink out of to the pillow you lay your head on at night, we want to create an experience you will never forget. A place where you can unplug from the crazy world and connect with yourself and nature. Explore the forest, make smores fireside, star gaze or just relax in a hammock watching the trees sway in the wind.

Great Option for Camping Novices
I really enjoyed my stay at The Fern. This is a great spot for people who want to have a camping experience without the commitment of buying/renting gear. The tent came furnished with pretty much everything I could think of, from multiple lanterns and fans to a little charging tower. Having the outhouse and shower was a huge plus, and even though I didn't end up cooking, there was more than enough equipment provided to do so. On top of all the amenities, the hosts make their intentions for the space clear: this is a sacred place, and we invite you to contribute to its sacredness. I love that ethos. I will say, my next trip would probably be scheduled sometime when it's cooler so I could really take advantage of the cushy bed linens!

Cannot recommend enough!!! 💕
Book with Alissa as soon as you can! The land was so peaceful and beautiful. You can tell there was so much thought and love that was put into creating this space and you feel it! Every little detail was carefully considered, even the outhouse!!! The outside shower was next level amazing. The bed was ridiculously comfortable, and the decor was so inviting! (My friend who I brought, actually looked up the sofa/bed and bought the same one!) I loved cooking over the open fire with the wood and pans that they so amazingly provide for us! (And for those better with a cook top, grill or burner, those are provided too!) For the morning they have THE BEST local coffee for you to enjoy!! The directions to the location were easy to follow and Alissa and her husband were right there to greet us when we got in. For the colder months there is a fireplace in the tent as well as plenty of extra blankets. We experienced a rainy weekend, but they had plenty of books, games and cards to keep us busy. I cannot wait to go back again with more people and eat at the beautiful family style table they have. Make sure to check out her beautiful jewelry too, I couldn’t resist but to buy a couple pieces! We brought our fur babies, and they even provided some doggie bowls and tennis balls for them to play fetch! Before you leave, grab a piece of fabric and bless a tree. You’ll feel the love, tenfold! For those looking for the outdoor experience while still having glamour and comfort, book now!

Ten out of ten!!!!
Growing up I read Narnia and always wanted that kind of magical experience never expecting to get it. The Fern gave me that magical moment. From the first step into the forest, the wonderful smells, the calming atmosphere, being surrounded by so much nature, we couldn't have asked anything better. My husband and I spent 2 nights here but wanted to stay so much longer. Everything we needed was supplied, the whole place was clean and thats saying something considering it's a forest. Seth was amazing and even saved us (me) from a massive Palmetto bug that got into the yurt. The bed and pillows were beyond comfortable, the kitchenette had everything and there were even some games and books to enjoy, which we did. Oh and the shower, exceeded every expectation. Something about showering in nature with towering trees over your head. If you're looking for a magic get away from the normal hustle and bustle of life, we cannot recommend this place enough!! Looking forward to coming back.

I loved the rural isolation in the woods, while enjoying yurt life. My hosts thought of everything to make me comfortable including a s’mores setup, yoga mat, coffee and twinkle lights. The yurt was clean and comfy and Alissa was very responsive. Thanks!

You want to consider this place!
Alissa was an incredible host, and made our stay so enjoyable! If you could think of it, she had it all latex out - every comfort considered and beautifully arranged in such a way that made our stay feel like home away from home. Great communication, and easygoing demeanor practically guarantees return visitors. Highly, highly recommend!
