I almost don’t want to review because I don’t want the word to get out how much I love this little (big) field!

Second time here, and we love this place. It’s got electric, water and cattle. It’s perfect, you feel secluded but yet the grocery store, restaurants, distillery and attractions are just a stone throw away.

Looking for a great local restaurant? Little Mountain Eatery. The Cajun fries and the steak and cheese panini are wonderful! (Thank me later)

We had a great time camping on the farm. Nice and secluded, lots of land, and felt safe and secure passing through multiple gates. Very convenient to anything you would need just down the highway a few miles. Great stop to recharge our batteries on the road home!

Staying so close to all the cows was so cute and such a great experience! They were very curious and came up to fence where we were able to pet them! We got some awesome film photos we are excited to develop! I would heartily recommend staying here any time you want to visit the smoky mountains!

Rustic but also reassuring. Plenty of privacy but close enough to a main road that you don't feel too isolated, and if you need anything it's a short drive away. The cows are awesome and curious!
