Fairmead Farm is a secluded sanctuary on a 200-year old Appalachian farm. We’ve kept aesthetics and the historical appeal as our priority. We think it’s a beau-tee-ful cove.  Creekside tent camping (Site #1), has a raised tent pad that will keep you as comfortable as the ground will allow, in the shade of our trees and between the hills.  A roof-covering (Shed Site #2) provides the additional security if you want to avoid the prospects of inclimate weather.  UNDER CONSTRUCTION:  For those seeking the best of a glamping experience, a 20 X 30’ refurbished cabin on stone piers is scheduled to open for business in mid-summer 2020.  No matter which site, we like the quiet this hollow affords.   The first thing you'll notice when you step out of your car, is the solitude enhanced by a mountain ridge nearly all the way around the property. You can enjoy exposed rock boulders on our slopes. Access to public hiking trails on the ridge.  From the ridge, you can almost touch Table Rock Mountain (State Park), Sassafras Mountain, Whiteside Mountain (Cashiers, NC) and beyond.  Our farm residence (circa early 1900s) fades into the panorama tranquility will not intrude upon your camping sites.  Enjoy our full-service bathroom with running water. Grocery store and hardware store just 10 minutes away is hard to believe.

Brian's land is really peaceful and beautiful. The campsite overlooks pasture and has beautiful woods surrounding. The ridge surrounds the cove and gives a really safe and sheltered atmosphere. Very calm and serene location that is also full of interesting history.

Brian’s property is amazing. Very quiet and remote. He was the perfect host. Sam was a great guard dog. Will definitely be back.

Upon arrival, Brian was there to greet and meet me at the location. As I was pulling up in the car, it started to rain. He suggested I use the sheltered tent site, which was nice, because the tent site I booked was not sheltered. He is passionate about the area, let me know that he is accessible by phone at any time. The bathroom is very nice and the warm shower was perfect before a days trip kayaking to the waterfall on Lake Jocassee. Thanks Brian!

This is an amazing campsite and Brian is a fantastic host. We have been here a couple times now and it’s perfect. The farm is idyllic to wake up to in the morning and peaceful at night. Nearby lots of great activities and laid out extremely well. Better than a hotel!

Brian was very friendly and helpful. We pitched out tent at the site further away from the house, nestled in the trees and near the potable water source.

Brian's farm was a peaceful and safe place to camp. The tent site was level and a picnic table, fire pit, firewood and ample chairs were provided.

Brians site was really nice and peaceful. His campsites are somewhere between a campground and primitive camping. The tent site has a level, elevated pad, picnic table, swing, fire pit, and water hose. There is no outlet, but there is a shower/sink/toilet just a few minutes' walk away. The great thing about his site is that there are no campers around you and it is very private in that regard. Brian does have firewood and asks for a donation if you use it. He also shuttles people for the foothills trail and his site can be a good base camp if you are coming in from out of town. If I car camp again in that area, I'll look to Brian's farm first.
