As I was driving up to the property, I was prepared to ask the hosts where was the best place to get a view of the mountains in the area - until I arrived. I quickly realized that it was right there in front of me. Cloud and fog covered mountains greeted me as such as I pulled up to the courtyard of the property. Nicole and her husband have to be some of my favorite Hipcamp hosts so far. Both are very accommodating, friendly, and easy to talk with. Nicole and I shared some great conversations while she showed me around the farm and discussed her future visions for how she would like to see the farm grow. She hopes to add suites and full bathrooms in the now empty barn stalls, but for now, the stall make a great spot for a campsite when the weather is not cooperating (and it's located close to the port-a-potty). Currently, they have a menagerie of rescue animals: two donkeys, too piggies, two llamas, a handful of goats and chickens (that are free range on the farm). The views are constantly awe-inspiring and when the weather permits, you can see views of Cold Mountain! There are several spots great for camping and can accommodate any size of group.

The Blue Ridge views from the Goodyacre Farm are breathtaking. Look at this sweet, alpaca smile. The courtyard of the property has a lovely fire pit with a picnic table and comfy chairs. A small studio is in the background and the behind it leads to where the donkeys stay during the day. Alpacas and goats!

We had our best Thanksgiving ever, hanging out with Nicole, Joe and Brian on their farm. As we pulled up we got a really warm welcome and the grand tour from Brian, who talked us through all the best spots to set up camp for the sunrise over the Blue Ridge Mountains, or to watch sunset over the alpacas, or even to nestle ourselves under the shelter of their huge horse arena (we opted for a view of Cold Mountain at sunrise). Then Brian set us up with water, electricity and even started our fire (he provided enough wood for us to keep it going for 2 days in the frosty Thanksgiving chill).

During our stay, Nicole, Joe and Brian gave us the perfect mix of feeling completely welcome as part of their community (coming and going to share a glass of wine or toast a marshmallow with us) but also giving us space and privacy so we still felt like we were camping in the mountains of North Carolina.

Worth noting, depending on what you're after, that the farm is in a rural neighborhood, so you're up in beautiful scenery but your still close to stores and amenities and there is cell service.

Goodyacre Farm was an excellent experience. Many camp areas to choose from and a great view of the mountains. We only had the pleasure of staying one night but enjoyed a camp fire and Nicole and her Husband Joe were very helpful and answered any and all of our questions. Our group also enjoyed the animals and learning more about the hemp farm. We will definitely be back!

Our camp site (Site 1) was a flat partially enclosed space nestled into a hill above the alpaca and pig enclosure. It was a bit remote from the rest of the farm and only a short walk up a small hill to the warm bathroom inside the barn. Due to bad weather we didn’t get to visit much or see Dr. Stone but we are already planning our next trip! Nicole was wonderful the making sure we had the perfect spot and gracious in inviting us to a birthday celebration they had at the barn.

The farm is absolutely beautiful! We had been on a 2 week cross country trip and of all the places we stayed, I slept the best at this farm- it just has a wonderful, safe feel that made me not want to leave! The views are amazing, the animals are the sweetest. My only complaint is that nobody was there to greet us and I didn’t get a response back on the phone number so I wasn’t even sure I was camping in the right spot until I talked to a few other campers who also hadn’t met the host. It was disappointing because the host seems like she is doing some really great things at the farm- I would’ve loved to have learned more about what was going on there! But even still I would go back in a heartbeat!

Upon arrival, we had to juggle camp spots with some other campers for the evening partly due to our schedule and a late booking. After sorting it all out we stayed at site 1. There was a fire ring and seating with firewood at the site. We enjoyed the nearby alpacas and pigs - our pup was so curious about them too! Nicole was quick to respond to messages, and very willing to help. It was a quick stay, so didn't get to explore the property.

The site was completely stunning and provided a much needed break from the outside world. The campsite was clean and easily accessible. We camp in eno’s and Nicole let us hang them up in the barn next to campsite 3 which was a great set up. She also let me help feed the new rescue cow which was a huge plus

The farm was exactly what we had hoped for and more! We camped on site 3 and had a space that felt private with a gorgeous view of the mountains and a great fire pit and table. We were right next to a barn with a bathroom (very clean!) which was perfect. When we walked around the farm we got to see the other guests who were very lovely, but our space felt like our own. The animals were so much fun and we even got to feed a baby cow! Thank you for such a great stay!
