The campsite is really beautiful. Cate & Chris have everything you could possibly need! The inside of the tent is very nice. Had no problem getting in touch with the host at any point during the stay. Everything exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend!
Beautiful spot, great location
Beautiful site! My husband and I stayed at Cate & Chris's spot one night and it was everything described and more. Great location, right on a bubbling stream ripe for exploration and with hiking options nearby. Cate provided accurate directions and was available for questions and to meet us on arrival and give a quick orientation. She was also very knowledgeable about area hikes and provided a helpful map. In addition to the amenities listed (lots of utensils and cookware!), they provided a new grill (but we easily used the fire/grill-set up). They also added a canopy over the tent to provide additional cover in case of rain. Bed was huge and comfortable and I've never seen a cleaner tent! Very much appreciate the care Cate and Chris take in hosting.
My husband and daughter just got back from their stay at your lovely campsite. Your attention to detail and thoughtful accomodations for the rain made is a wonderful experience! They loved exploring the creek, and found a great swimming hole further up. And despite a thunderstorm and high winds that night, they both felt cozy, safe and warm in your spacious "mini home". I would highly recommend the experience to anyone wanting the best of camping, without the hassle of set up and take down.
The best kept secret!
This was an awesome experience! My husband and I love to primitive camp! But this year was a little different, we wanted to on our anniversary and have a little less hassel. Cate was so sweet! She provided everything you can think to need. There is a full size bed (that is SO comfortable!), with four normal size pillows and two smaller decorative pillows, sheets cover as well as two fuzzy blankets, night stands on each side of the bed (with dimmable lanterns, water bottles, soap, shampoo, and Kleenex), a coat hanger, a storage shelf (all basic utensils, skewers, two cutting boards, 4 large plastic cups, 4 coffee cups, coffee maker-outdoor, hard plates, paper plates, hard bowls, paper bowls, napkins, medium size pot, large pan, a bucket for washing dishes; including dish soap, sponge, and dish drying towel, two bathing towels, and two hand towels!). She also has laminate on the bottom of the tent as well as rugs! There is extra storage room under the bed as well! Outside was amazing and perfect! Two foldable chairs, round table, picnic table, gas grill, firepit with metal hanger for grilling over top, hammock right on the creek, fire starters, rug outside of tent for dirty feet, ax, lighter, and even a porta-potty; she said soon will have a flushing outhouse). This is very private! Their house is above the hill but you cannot hear or see anything. The campsite is at the end of a long dirt road, so no other way in and out. Trails for hiking, walk up the creek for great swimming holes and waterfall! The campsite is right on the creek so you can enjoy the sound while falling asleep. There is also a large canopy over top of the tent that is extended so you have a "front porch"! Which is great because you're in Mt Mitchell and rain will come and go. It stormed twice pretty bad but felt very safe. We will definitely return and encourage anyone to visit this beautiful little Oasis. Thank you so much Cate for your kindness and well kept campsite! We cannot wait to return!
I loved this spot and am already looking at my calendar for when I can return. I live in Western NC, and this, in my opinion, is in the middle of some of the best Western NC has to offer. Tent was great and bed comfortable. Hosts friendly and quick to respond. I have Verizon and could also make calls and get texts from the site but used their WiFi from the yard if data was needed. Can't wait to return.
Our experience here was nothing short of amazing. Chris and Kate were very helpful, even building a ready to light fire after we struggled to build one on our own the first night. The view is spectacular and very private. We scheduled activites in hot springs (white water rafting, kayaking, hot springs tub, and hiking; the camp is a bit more than an hour away but it is well worth the drive) but wish we had more time just to relax at camp. We HIGHLY recommend this gem of a camp nestled in the forest. We will definitely be back and plan to stay much longer than 2 days next time.
