Come enjoy a cozy yurt on a working farm in the historic Dry Creek Valley community! The yurt includes a full kitchen, separate bathroom with claw foot tub, washing machine, and a composting toilet. There is a small cedar bedroom with loft attached to the yurt for additional sleeping space. Have your dinner on the big deck or by the campfire ring as you watch the fireflies dance over the field below! 

We have a really beautiful creek that runs approximately 3/4 mile through the farm and includes a swimming hole that is available for hip campers to use. It is crystal clear water with many critters intriguing to children  and adults alike. There is a cemetery dating to the early 1800s that is a short hike from the yurt. We have lovely logging roads and potential for exploring through the woods. The topography here is unique and rugged, with bluffs, caves, and creeks. The third largest cave in TN, Indian Grave Point is 1/4 mile from the farm. The farm is located a short drive from Center Hill Lake Where you can rent a boat or canoe, fish, and swim.

***Sheets and towels are not provided, so please plan accordingly!

***There are two beds  and a small cot available, but plenty of camping space and floor space for larger groups. Bring your own tent and bedding.

I can’t say enough to recommend this place! It is very private and away from everything, yet has every creature comfort, including air conditioning 😁. We spent hours on the deck lingering over dinner and watching the stars come out and the moon rise over the mountains. This place has a million dollar view and virtually no light pollution!
Even better, it comes with a private swimming hole and a big pebble beach a short walk from the yurt.
The whole set up is perfect for a romantic retreat but is was also ideal for our stay which included friends and kids.
This yurt is not just a place to stay, it is a destination in itself!

Panorama of yurtLots of shade on the deck all day longThat view!Annex/2nd bedroom accessible from the deck without walking through the main yurt.

The place is great. Very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Nothing fancy...but very nicely designed and very well kept. And the setting is perfect if you’re looking for a quiet getaway

Deluxe Glamping in a large yurt in a pastoral peaceful setting. Congenial hosts will direct you and your vehicle down the gravel track to your secluded accommodations with comfortable bed, full-size fridge and stove, toilet facilities in adjoining room. A secondary space has a clawfoot tub shower combo and sink and an additional room with a small bed and cot. Great set up for a family. Fire ring, deck, Creek with swimming hole, electricity, water, no Internet or Wi-Fi.

The yurt was clean, comfortable -- and spacious! The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. We spent a lot of time on the deck, enjoying the view and the quiet. We also enjoyed the delightful swimming hole in the creek nearby. Nora was a delightful and responsive host. We definitely plan to return to the Yurt at Creekbend Farm.

Such a beautiful place for our family to spend time together! The creek was really fun to explore! We loved meeting all the farm animals and seeing all the wildlife and aquatic life. Nora is an amazing host who inspired and educated our family. My 12 year old daughter is inspired to be a farm girl someday and this place is her “life goal” now. We can’t wait to come back!

Good to know: This is a working farm. If you are considering this property, you and your family should be sure-footed, sensible and safe. The yurt has stone/wooden steps and a stone deck. The creek has mossy rocks. There is a hilly driveway, and a bridge that, to some, may make them feel like they are on those oil change/car wash ramps...but it is totally safe and easy to drive across. The humanure toilet is a container you sprinkle with sawdust and it is not smelly or gross as long as you and your family members follow directions. All of these things are nonissues to us—make sure they are nonissues to you, too. Be a good steward of the property...Clean up after yourself, recycle correctly, and leave this peaceful place better than you found it.

It was a privilege to stay there...thank you, Nora!

Nora was absolutely lovely! The Yurt and then farmland surrounding it is absolutely beautiful. The creek on the property was so refreshing. My kiddos loved catching little creek critters and my dog never wanted to stop swimming. We are already planning to book our next stay!

This is a fabulous little place. It was so nice to unplug (no service) in such a beautiful setting. I loved spending the evenings on the deck looking at the stars, which are so bright and clear without light pollution. If you are into roughing it a bit, this is the spot for you. What a great place for a last minute trip. Thanks, Nora!!

Relaxing to watch the deer and cows in the meadow, as the sun went down. Nora walked us to the creek which has the clearest water I've seen in TN. A relaxing and peaceful place ot visit.
