The campsite is up a hill beside the owner’s house; while it is not completely secluded, you still get plenty of privacy. We were happy to meet the host’s adorable pig Gus, who roams around freely and would hang out at our camp with us. There is also a friendly husky who is out and about. Asheville is about 45 minutes away and we made a day trip there during our stay. We also found a good coffee shop not too far away from the property. Jeremiah was very accommodating and generous, giving us free firewood, building us a makeshift toilet, and making his hose available to us. Would definitely come back again, the land is beautiful and it was a great stay!

Jeremiah was a great host! Gave us some tips for hikes and waterfalls in the area. The campsite is very secluded (feels like your queen/king of the hill), yet not far from where you park your car. There's also a grocery store nearby. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful lighting through the trees.Campfire after rainy afternoon.Plenty of space to pitch tents and hang hammocks!

Didn’t meet host. Wasn’t there till the next morning when I left and he waved at me. Had some kind of revolving blue light on top of his house which shown into my tent. It was conveniently located near Mt. Mitchell and made it very easy for me to get back to hiking .

The nearby first-come-first serve campgrounds were all full earlier than expected which left us scrambling. Luckily we were able to find Jeremiah’s place, book instantly, and arrive 15 minutes later. We were so very appreciative for this!

The campsite was perfectly fine. Plenty of firewood to find, flat places for tents, and private. You’re atop a ridge so you can see the mountains all around through the trees but can also hear traffic and all that (quiet and balanced out by the nature sounds so it was fine). And while we had none of the campground amenities we had originally planned, it turned out to be better with the quiet and privacy this site allowed us.

We didn’t meet the host but had a great time! It was easy to find. There were a few other groups camping, but there was enough space between us all to feel private. Would recommend!

It was not clear from the listing that this site can be booked by multiple parties. When we arrived around sunset, the host was not present and every flat, level piece of property was taken by other campers. This was pretty disappointing and I couldn't recommend this site.
