Very nice secluded property, camper is near the house but has a private feel. Clean and cozy, nice little welcome pack.
Convenient to our daughters place in Carrboro.

I loved staying at Ivonne’s Retro Camper! It was a peaceful stay tucked back in the woods with free range chickens and two cute and affectionate donkeys. The camper was very clean and had special touches including a hand written card, a retro camper Christmas ornament, and a box of moon pies. There was also bottled spring water in the fridge. It was cozy and had everything I needed for a weekend get away. It was the perfect base camp for exploring Chapel Hill and the surrounding area. I hope to make it back!

I loved this donkey!I enjoyed the peaceful mornings writing and reading with coffee.A personalized card and gifts from the host made for a warm welcome.Cozy and clean bed.

This was a great trip. The camper is decked out. All modern amenities (the only thing my daughter couldn’t do was connect her switch, which meant she had to talk to me) and close to a lot of cool stuff. The bathroom is a little rough if you are tall but that’s a small price to pay. Having some familiarity with campers will definitely be an advantage but mostly that would come in with cooking and the bathroom and I have no doubt Ivonne would answer any question if asked. She was generous with her property and the peace was nice. If the choice is between this and a hotel room, you’d be a fool to pick a hotel room. Save the money on the hotel and spend it on the Uber.

Ivonne's camper has such a cute, retro vibe, but with all the modern amenities. The inside of the camper has fun, colorful decorations and a very comfortable full size mattress. There's a bathroom, kitchen, and air conditioning on board, so while you're out in the woods, you're not really roughing it. There's a nice area right out front with a picnic table and a spot for a fire. The camper is located on Ivonne's property that feels like a peaceful little getaway, complete with a small garden and four friendly chickens. There is a lot to explore, like a nature walk, swings and hammocks. Ivonne is such a welcoming host!

The cute retro camper called Towanda. The camper has a super comfortable bed, an eating space, a bathroom, and a kitchen with sink, stove and refrigerator. Retro Camper in the WoodsRetro Camper in the WoodsRetro Camper in the Woods

The Retro Camper in the Woods is a great experience! Ivonne has it decked out with all you need. The farm offers a meditative trail through the woods, and is very quiet. Ivonne was responsive to our messages and needs. I highly recommend this stay!

The Retro camper was so charming and had everything you need. Plus the bed was very comfortable. There was lots to do in nearby Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough and lots of great eating places. A perfect weekend getaway.

What a great deal!
I have already renamed the Retro Camper in the Woods to Sweetpea and I want to keep her all to myself! Ms. Yvonne may have to evict me. I want to stay in her backyard for ever.

Location Location Location.
Very private neighborhood with very few neighbors. Very quiet. Just the wind in the trees and the sound of wind chimes. No street noise at all. It really is 30 minutes from everywhere but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere (my personal preference). I visited William B. Umstead Park, JC Raulston Arboretum and Duke Gardens. All just 30 minutes away from Sweetpea. I will be going down to Zebulon tomorrow for Aura Photography at Sage and Smudge.

Strong WIFI connection. After each day I returned back to Sweetpea and was able to edit and load my photos at camp! Usually I have to wait until I am home to get this strong of a signal.

This is a spot I will return to.

Thank you Ms. Yvonne for such a welcoming place
