The hosts were so friendly, making sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the farm fresh eggs. We were able to set up our tent on grass right next to the large fire pit & the bathroom was right next door. 2 chairs were provided. The water was nice and hot and the building was heated. We loved feeding apples & carrots to Eore the donkey and the super friendly mini horses. The nights were so quiet and peaceful with beautiful stars. The town of New Bern is a cute historic town on the water about 30min away.
Better than we imagined! My fav was feeding the animals. Baby goats fell asleep in our arms, so precious. Hosts were easy going &friendly, taking their time to tell us about the farm. Tent sites were grass and were all around the common areas shared with the Airbnb rentals (yurt, rv, barn). But if you want more privacy you could ask if more are available. A fire ring near the common area as well as several picnic tables. Didn't use the shower but there was 1 outdoor & one indoor shower w/toilet &sink. Plenty of towels,soaps, shampoos, etc including dish soap. The bathroom shed/building was bright &clean. They have a whole other building w/indoor seating, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker w/supplies, dishes, board games, foosball, camping chairs, etc. Firewood &trash cans were provided. There were so many more amenities than I expected! Checkout time says 10 but hosts let us stay several hrs longer to explore the farm& interact w/the animals. Sleeping @night w/the animals noises was awesome bc it's something we don't get to experience in the city &it didn't bother us at all. But if you are a light sleeper that is bothered by noise you may want earplugs. The host has an etsy shop so there are many things for sale including homemade jams, goat milk soap, goat milk lotion, tshirts, etc. It was nice to do a little gift shopping from a unique place! I would definitely stay here again.
Great friendly, artistic/hippie type atmosphere. The host was super helpful, she showed us around and even offered to help build a fire pit so we could have our own fire if we wanted. We ended up staying in one of the spots right outside the main house since it was getting late, although the host mentioned that there were more private spots by a pond, but you couldn't drive right up to them. The fire pit is right next to the pool and is communal. The fire is contained in a black metal cage (forgot the name of those things!) so you cannot cook on it. But there is a really large propane griddle/burner/ stove that everyone can use in the back of the house. We used it to warm up our coffee in the morning while another camper was also cooking pancakes on the griddle. There are 2 bathrooms on the main floor with showers and plenty of toilet paper; it looks like towels were provided too. There is a communal room with music system and a pool table. I think people were swimming in the pool although it looked like it needed more chlorine as the water was a greenish hue. The highlight was feeding the horses. We had stopped by the little market before we got to the property and bought apples and carrots. We were so happy when the host let us go into their enclosure and feed them. They surrounded us and followed us all around begging for the treats. The next morning we went into the gate and they came running, they remembered us! This was a really neat experience, much better than a traditional campground!
Lovely stay, the 6 spots are spaced well apart, all laid out in a big field. Each spot comes with a fire pit and table and it looked like some spots had chairs/ benches around the fire pit (ours did not). You can see the ocean in the far distance, but it was quite a hike to walk, maybe a 5 min drive to the parking lot in front of beach, then a couple min walk. The parking lot had restrooms and the beach was awesome, so quiet and private feeling. We could hear the roaring of the waves at night and the baying of the sheep right behind the fence next to us. Firewood is $5 and you find it in an open trailer near the host area; bins are provided to haul it to your spot. The host wasn't there but a lady came the next morning to bring toilet paper for the outhouse. We didn't use the outhouse bc we had our own portable toilet. Overall loved our 1 night stay here, much better than the busy KOA across the street.
