Come visit the farm and stay with us! We have primitive tent camping, RV sites, and a cozy little cabin. Blackwater Birds and Bees is a developing farm that started in 2016. If you're looking for privacy, you won't find a better place in Southeastern Virginia. It's over 100 acres on the Blackwater River with access to over 2 miles of waterfront without leaving the property. The river is much like a cypress swamp with large channels running through the middle and it creates a perfect environment for all kinds of spectacular wildlife. We have kayaks and canoes available for campers to use for free and a Jon boat with trolling motor available for rent. Fishing is permitted in our large pond and on the river. The farm currently features an apiary, vegetable garden, blueberry bushes, and animals including ducks, chickens, geese, and goats. The cabin features a full-size bed complete with linens/bedding as well as a sleeping loft for 2 additional guests. While the cabin does not have electricity or plumbing, it does have battery operated lights and an outhouse with flush toilet on site for the convenience of cabin guests. We have a farm shop stocked with local products, camping essentials, fishing gear, and much more! *If you are bringing a large camper or RV please pick site #3 or site #2.*Site #4 is about 75 yards into the woods away from the parking space.* Check us out on Instagram @blackwater_birds_and_bees

Great place. We were left alone and not bothered. (That鈥檚 what I prefer). They have outdoor plumbing for the ladies and that鈥檚 really nice too. We stayed at tent site #4 and my only comment is that you have to park your truck then walk about 20-30 yards to the site. I like this, but for those tailgaters this could be an issue. Overall 10-10 stay!

Great Visit
We loved the bungalow! It was so warm and inviting and the little heater in there kept it nice and warm even after we shut it off for the night! James and his parents were great hosts, allowing us to stay after checkout to use the canoes and the property. We will definitely be coming back!

Great spot! Felt very secluded still which is what we wanted. Fire pit was great and picnic table was handy.

The property & bungalow were a comfortable & easy getaway for one night! I enjoyed walking around the lake & the woman who greeted me was very kind! She offered to get more water for the kitchen, but I was all set. Very welcoming & relaxing location!

We loved staying at this property! There was so much to do, and it was a beautiful and quiet area. We would love to come back and stay longer another time.
