Welcome to our small Farm and Inn, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Madison County, Virginia. Located just minutes from Shenandoah National Park, we offer intimate nature-inspired cottages and camping on our 120-acre working farm. Enjoy an evening under the stars with fireflies and a campfire after a long day hike, fly fishing on one of our beautiful trout steams or touring the local vineyards and breweries. We currently offer one cottage and a few campsites for our guests. Our campsites are all private, located acres apart with tables, chairs, firepits, some elevated sleeping areas, some hammock spots and a few with a roof. Three of our spots require walking away from your vehicle, short distances. We have four drive-in sites that will accommodate two or three vehicles. We do not allow RVs or trailers on our main farm due to our narrow mountain driveway. Wisteria Camp has a private driveway therefore can accommodate small RV/Trailers. Camper vans are welcome at the main farm! Our farm store includes our Animal Welfare Approved products such as Eggs, Chicken, Beef, Pork, Lamb and Dairy, as well as produce, jams, coffee and other items from our local community. We offer camping essentials, local art, bike rentals, farm experiences and tours. The property has miles of trails along mountain spring-fed streams, a small pond and access to three private acres on the Robinson River, a stocked Trout stream, just 2 miles down the road. Our property is centrally located to White Oak Canyon (20 minutes) and Old Rag Mountain (10 minutes) trailheads in the Shenandoah National Park as well as many vineyards and breweries. A few offerings on the farm. Tasting in the 1850s Chestnut log cabin, tubing trips, breakfast and picnic lunches, Animal experiences and Yoga. Please inquire about renting the property for private small events.

Fiddlehead Camp near SNP
Pefect site for true camping!
If West Virginia is almost heaven, you've arrived once you find Landon Farms! Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our littles (ages 10, 8, 6, 4) loved the added bonus of animal cuddles. The description is exactly as we found the site. We were pleasantly surprised to find non potable water, a makeshift outhouse and cooking supplies at the site as well. Be sure to sign up for porter services if you're carrying a lot. It's a hike into the site; but the seclusion is worth the hike! We found Jennifer's suggestions/insight to be extremely helpful and appreciated the full rundown of best hikes, etc in Shenandoah. We had no cell service for much of our stay, so be sure to plan ahead and know where you're going before you arrive. You don't really pick up service after leaving the farm, either so don't expect to do much "googling" of what to do/where to go!

Gypsy Camp Near SNP
Odd but nice
It was lovely and matched the description. It was a steepish dirt road to get to the sites. Well maintained, private. I didn't realize that the solar shower it mentioned was a bag solar shower tacked to a phone pole on the top of a hill, in a open clearing of trees with a few of someone's truck. That was a bit odd but I was so grateful for a shower, I enjoyed it.

Wisteria Camp near SNP
Great spot near old rag
Pretty good spot 15 mins driving from Old rag. I came for the sole purpose of hiking that specific trail, so this was perfect. It had a table which was a nice bonus. Other than that pretty basic spot with plenty of room for parking and a tent and a fire

Sparrow Hammock Camp
An awesome site!
Jennifer is an amazing host with a wonderful property to camp at. I traveled as a solo camper and felt so welcomed and safe on her farm. She has great recommendations, gives perfect directions, and her farm store has a ton of fun hand crafted items and farm fresh food. The amenities offered can add the perfect amount of convenience if your group is interested in taking advantage of them, the prices are so sweet that it was impossible for me to say no! I’d suggest the gear transport assist, fire wood is convenient too, there’s also plenty of wood in the forests around to use at the sites. I used the sparrow camp and found the site to be nice and spacious and provided the privacy for a getaway in nature that you look for when camping. The animals at the farm are fun to watch and would be great entertainment for anyone really. I’d definitely recommend hipcamp, after talking to the host at the end I’m really interested in the butterfly campsite.

Butterfly Camp: Near Shenandoah NP
We loved our second trip to Jennifer's land. This time, we stayed at butterfly. It was a beautiful, well maintained site complete with a sink for hand washing and a solar shower. Last time we stayed a Wisteria. Both sites are lovely. Wisteria had more shade which you may prefer during hotter weather but Butterfly has beautiful scenery. You can't go wrong with either.
