Mark and I discovered this small homestead 10 years ago. It was built by a man preparing to go off grid, but he never did. In the intervening time, we became enthralled with growing vegetables, raising poultry and hiking the hills behind us. Then Nicole discovered permaculture and began the process of changing the land using these practices. One day, she even found a wild bee swarm and the little buggers quickly went from one hive to four -- and growing. With our three dogs, cats, goats, ducks and chickens, things can be pretty merry around her. Plus, Nicole is one of the region's only craft coffee roasters, so you are in for a treat if you come visit and like coffee because she tends to hand visitors sample packs. Learn more about this land: Hang your hammock or pitch your tent in the back acres of a small homestead integrating permaculture practices. Hang out in our land for your whole visit checking out  the holler we live in, dunk in the creek by the road, or drive over the hill to Center Hill Marine, or across the dam to Edgar Evins State park. or canoe the Caney Fork River! Sorry - No dogs please. Kayaking and fishing is also so close you can almost hear it - but you can't. Which is good.  Our property has a composting outhouse and the outdoor shower attached to the house has hot and cold water. We also have a nice, outdoor kitchen area to share that has a big sink and blackstone griddle. There is Wifi in the kitchen area and a plug for recharging devices. The camp site is a two-minute walk from the driveway and outhouse so be prepared to carry items in and take your morning constitutional walk.  We sometimes have available for sale eggs, freshly roasted coffee, jams and jellies. This is a functioning homestead, so we may be hosting an open house event, processing chickens, or some other fun digging activity during your stay. (For this year, all chickens are processed, so if you are squeamish, you are covered).

Holler homestead was a perfect place to camp! Nicole showed us around and answered questions about the homestead. We all ended our stay with new knowledge which is much better than generic campsites. The campsite itself was great. The hike in is beautiful with several options on where you want to pitch your tent. The main campfire area is next to some really cool goats. The other amenities are cool: outhouse, shower, kitchen, and I’m sure more we didn’t use. I already hesitate telling people about this place since I want to go back and want the weekends available. You’ll have a great time at the Holler!

I really enjoyed my stay here! The property was beautiful and the campsite very quiet and peaceful, but not too far from the road and car. Sweet animals too

Nicole was so great at communicating and making us feel welcomed. She shared home grown tomatoes and duck eggs with us, answered all our questions about her homestead and introduced all of her animals. If you’re looking for a beautiful and remote place I completely recommend Holler.

Nicole walked our family around and showed us all of the potential camping sites. She also gave us a tour of the different permaculture methods in use on her piece of land, and let our kids pet her sweet goat, Clover. The site we chose to camp at was very private, and there were plenty of places to hang hammocks. The composting toilet was accessible and easy to use. The hollow is beautiful, and the seasonal creek is a great spot to sit still and just enjoy. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend!

It was very peaceful and secluded. We were only about 10 minutes from the dam. Nicole was a very good host.

I loved visiting Nicole's campsites! It is tucked away in the Tennessee woods and is a beautiful, woodsy property. Nicole greeted me when I arrived and took me on a tour. The campsite areas are back in the woods and take an easy hike to get to. The sites are very private and peaceful. On the property there are friendly dogs, ducks, and goats! Nicole also is creating a hydroponic garden which was fascinating to take a look at. There is also a pit toilet available, but it's a little trek away from the campsites. If you are looking for a great camping spot in Tennessee I highly recommend Nicole's listing!

Nicole was a lovely host! She even gave us some of her ground roasted coffee. Her land is beautiful with a creek to splash in, hills on either side. Very secluded and she let us have reign of the place. Thanks for having us Nicole!
