I absolutely loved my stay at EarthSeed! Thank you so much, Charlie and Stella (and their dog, Winston!) for a relaxing and rejuvenating stay. They were the perfect hosts and were accommodating is every way! EarthSeed was incredibly comfortable and cozy, especially during the evening rainstorm! The outdoor kitchen that they have set up was perfect, and I loved using their grill. I loved exploring their property and seeing all of the different kinds of butterflies in their fields. There is something for everyone at this farm: it's perfect for a quiet retreat, but close enough to the Lake and many trails if you'd like to be more active. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

My sister and I stayed at EarthSeed for two nights, and my only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The property is absolutely gorgeous! A lot of work has gone into this already beautiful place to make it into a wildlife wonderland. The tent and outdoor kitchen contain anything you may need for a cozy, relaxing trip. You'll never want to leave.

Stella and Charlie are amazing hosts! We had never done anything like this, so my sister and I were a little nervous going in. Don't be nervous! Stella and Charlie are the most welcoming hosts I've ever met. Charlie even took time to come out to bond with us and tell us about some waterfalls we could see around the area. He provided maps and directions. They went the extra mile for anything we needed.

Stay at EarthSeed! You won't regret it!

Our stay is difficult to put into words. The care Charles and Stella put into ensuring their guests feel comfortable and tended to cannot be compared. From welcome to farewell we quickly felt as though we were temporarily extended family. Charlie's knowledge of the trails and falls helped my daughter and I plan for two full days of adventures. The facilities were very comfortable and well maintained and I will return the first chance I get!

Charlie and Stella are the best host my girlfriend and I have experienced. We stayed two nights at the Earthseed and it was wonderful, it exceeded all our expectations and more!

Butterfly Farm is glorious! This hidden paradise in the Smoky Mountains has a great force that makes you wonder, think, and meditate introspectively. This sanctuary is beautiful and maintained so very well that it strengthens your appreciation and respect for nature.

We often get stuck in our daily work routine from modern society and forget how to fully enjoy life. This trip was the best way to de-stress, reset, and re-align. At the end of the trip we felt revitalized and transformed.

We had such a great time! I would recommend this experience to everyone! Definitely we will visit back!

Thank you Charlie and Stella for the trip! You guys are great human beings and have inspired us. Hope to be back soon!

Charlie and Stella were impeccable hosts and they provided everything we needed for our stay at EarthSeed. It was the perfectly located near The Great Smoky Mtns and Asheville/Blue Ridge Parkway. Charlie can provide maps and recommended itineraries if you need assistance deciding what to do. It was a wonderful place to relax and be one with nature.
