The A-Frame was comfortable and entertaining. A perfect place to unwind in the mountains. The side of the mountain is flush with tree and makes a beautiful setting for gathering around the cabin. The hosts provide amenities and fun activities to keep you engaged however long you stay
A 40 minute drive west outside of Austin, Texas this cabin plays host to a cactus farm, cedar trees, and creek that runs through the property. Two bedrooms and two baths makes the cabin perfect for couples or a small family. It was the setting of a getaway for my Dad, brother, and me. The time was quiet and full. Games are provided at the cabin. A huge working fire place. The night was great. Because it was so close to Austin, it made a great home base for exploring the city.
Richard and Stephanie are super hosts. The two have land just outside the suburban loop north of DFW which makes it an easy and beautiful getaway from city life. The primitive site was provided with a fire ring and 10 gallons of water. We got the lay of the land from Richard and a tour of the property. You can feel the love and history put into the field. The back portion of the property plays host to wild flowers and beautiful cedar trees. The family has dairy goats and producing chickens, you can imagine the scene in the spring as the goat cheese and the eggs flow. The campsite itself is nestled in the corner of a working field and the encircling cedars make great wind cover. I will use it again in the future.
The property is 100 acres with trails cut all throughout. It is half family owned farm land, half wooded mountain trails. Kyle, the host is helpful and kind. The brothers inherited the land from their grandfather and have a ton of plans for it. Currently they raise egg hens and pigs. They have built a rustic cabin with an wood burning stove for heat in the colder months with front porch screen and all. The rest of the land is ideal for primitive and hammock camping. We chose a spot down by the pond. Keep an eye out for poison ivy, but other than that the spot was excellent. So much potential at this site!
Samantha and Bruce were great hosts, they love their land and welcoming people into it. Rolling hills surround as you drive to the property under the shadow of Yonah Mountain. This is a working farm run by friendly people. They have a beautiful party barn that has played host to wedding receptions. The acreage has two creeks and campsites on both. We chose the site below cattle pasture which led us to be greeted by the sweet girls at the fence line for our breakfast. A picnic table made eating and cooking easy. The spot was perfect for the two of us and our two dogs. Blue Creek is close to a ton of hiking and tourist spots in north Georgia. We got to hike Yonah Mountain and visit Helen - a mock german town home to tubing on the Chattahoochee and good beer.
Our host greeted us a goodie bag and even invited us into her home, which is so unique and beautiful, and made us feel extremely welcome. Her farm is home to horses and wildlife, well manicured and diverse. A stream, rolling hills, and beautiful views are all walkable. Being able to drive in makes car camping a dream, her property becomes your playground.
Hosts Scott and Nicole are kind and hospitable. The land is being worked into a fly fishing ground. Quiet and nestled along a rock bottom stream they have several camp sites in the woods and open field for your choosing. It's perfect for both tent and hammock camping. Bring your fly rod and expect a great time. It's close to a ton of pristine state parks for hiking and river hopping. Tullulah Gorge is worth all the steps - all 1000+ of them!
You arrive to rolling hills with vineyards/orchards. The land is beautiful, just minutes away from the wild and scenic Chatooga River. If you want to relax, take in the sunset over the rolling hills wine in hand this is your place. Alternately, the site is minutes away from 3 premiere rafting companies to be guided over the rapids. If you have experience and your own gear it would make a great basecamp for drying out after running the rapids all day. The property is home to a distillery, a working bee farm, tree house, lakeside dock - all adjacent to the winery venue itself.
The Farm at Wilkerson Mill is peaceful, made so by it's owner and caretaker, Reggie. As you arrive you can envision the environment he is creating - a place for friends to meet and get away from the hustle of the city. Whether you are in the Atlanta area or making it your destination, The Farm is a great launching place. Imagine the wide open green space wreathed in towering hardwoods. Perfect for fires and games of ultimate frisbee or spikeball. Reggie is in process of growing a sustainable garden, plays host to four legged donkeys and sheep, and encourages family activities. He's installed running water and a well to the property and quite literally the nicest camp bathroom I've ever used. My night was quiet. I rested well and got up for a quick drive into Atlanta to meet friends for a day of exploring. Whether you are a big group or an individual, I recommend The Farm at Wilkerson Mill.
