This creekside bungalow is located on Western North Carolinas only certified biodynamic medicinal herb farm. We cultivate about 8 acres who's beauty and medicine is easily enjoyed from the porch of the bungalow, or a 150' walk from your door (yes you can harvest some for tea in the morning!)

The cabin sites only a few feet from Cedar Creek. It is a nice clean cool mountain creek, that is invigorating, mostly shallow creek with a few smaller deeper holes that trout might be hiding in.

The bungalow sits on the edge of the farm well away from the main part of activities. There is a small raise platform for a bed (with only camper pads for a mattress at the moment. It is approximately 10x16 and has wood sides up to about 3' and then it is all screen. There is also a jungle mosquito canopy screen over the bed that is quite roomy and allows you a bug free sleep!

You can have a small campfire outside. Inside there is no electricity or anything like that. It is very rustic yet delightful. Currently there is no camp stove there. You can bring one and set up a camp if you like but please clean up after yourself to keep the critters at bay. Otherwise people come up to the main part of the farm to use the facilities there. Again, it is rustic, There are only outside kitchens.

The farm is surrounded on three sides by mountains, with Cedar creek along one edge. The herbs are grown in the middle of a 10-acre field. There are numerous outbuildings for the operations of the farm. Sometimes I get to mowing/weed whacking, sometimes the weeds and grass grows up-( I will be happy to keep the weeds down around the cabin when you let me know when you will be here, but just know it is a organic/biodynamic farm that does value the biodiversity that an overgrown field offers)

You are also welcome to take part in farm activities about any day. There is always weeding to be done! Also planting, harvesting, seed saving, drying and processing herbs etc. You can also harvest some for yourself for tea or medicine.

The area is well known for offering all the outdoor recreation one could want within a few minutes to a few hours.

I hope you enjoy the outdoors soon!

I'm going to write a longer version of this in the future, so I'll try to keep this simple.

Before arrival, I had no idea what Biodynamic meant. After a talk about the principles and ideas associated with, I learned that it's essentially the most "pure" form of organic farming. Whatever you think "organic farming" should be, is what this actually is. We had tea (from his farm) with our host, Gabe before doing a short tour of the area. It was phenomenal. After leaving, I had to buy some of his Holy Basil. I brought it back, and compared it to a friend's "organic/fair trade" version, and his was a night and day difference in quality. My mind is still a little blown.

As for the property, it's a pretty big farm! Plenty of space to sprawl out, and at any given time he has several interns camping out, learning the process. So you're always in good company. We saw the fields before bloom, and they're still picturesque. The bungalow looks incredibly comfortable! He also has a permanent bus parked with a deck, that's utilized as a kitchen/bathroom area, so for the less adventurous you're still good to go.
I highly recommend the "biodynamic bungalow creekside" to stay, and look forward to coming back someday. The drive into town is beautiful as well.

Exterior of the bungalow, for a more "glamping" experience.Little stylized, but the morning fog made for incredible lighting.Interior of the bungalow.Sometimes you need a beer break.

Amazingly beautiful farm in the North Carolina mountains. Very cool host, Gabe was awesome and we learned a lot from him about the farm and the process of production they use. Ample camping space with a nice river running along the back side of the property. Good hiking and fishing nearby. Delicious fresh tea and herbs. Relaxing, and welcoming hosts. Easy access to kitchen/bathroom. We'll be back for sure.
