On a knoll, deep in the woods, surrounded by ancient Beech Trees and Mountain Laurel, just above the creek is a super private magical [rough] camp site.

Its a short walk to the river, and all of the woods of the Farm are your to explore.

We have 65 acres of woods and field**, on the Tye River [walk through the woods or 1.5 mile walk down the road or drive/bicycle to good swim holes] close to the Blue Ridge Mountains, breweries, wineries, and a Whisky Distillery! ..as well as orchards near by.

The amount of wildlife is amazing, and camping out in the wood gives youa special experience, sitting by a fire [There's a designated fire pit] listening  to 3 kinds of owls hooting, coyotes singing, or Whippoorwills or Woodcocks in the Spring, or if you are lucky you'll hear a bobcat  or catch the turkeys doing their mating dance in the field. 

The deer wander through, a big buck with his branching antlers or a doe and her spotty twins might walk by. There are fox, rabbits, an occasional black bear passing through and hundreds of species of song birds, and raptors.

As you close your eyes you might hear the river over the song of the cicadas.

The river is EXCELLENT for canoeing and kayaking. There is a terrific 4 mile run with an easy put in and take out that runs by the farm. There are good swimming holes nearby and if you want to leave your spot in the woods the mountains are nearby with the AT about a 20 min drive.

I am smitten with this area and am an avid hiker, cycler and motorcyclist, and always happy to share my knowledge of local roads, trails, swimming holes and places to eat and drink.

** Please note as of right now and for the foreseeable, future this site is walk in only as the road is closed for "healing". There is parking for one or two cars [others can park up at the entrance] in the field just at the woods opening. It's a short walk in to the site.

Very private and secluded site

The site was exactly what was described and was exactly how we enjoy camping- private and secluded. Our host was very personable and great communication. I would recommend this site to anyone looking for primitive and private.

Serene campsite inside the forest

We love the place and it even exceeded our expectation. The campsite is in the middle of the forest and we had the place all to ourselves. It is silent and serene. The Tye River is just a short walk ahead from the campsite too. The "pooper" is a top-notch toilet that we have seen so far in terms of primitive camping, it even has its own nice view too. It was advised that one should have 4wd vehicle and we highly recommend that you should use one for going to the campsite. We tested it and we failed but the host, Stephanie, was ready and able to get us out of the mess! We were very relieved because of all her help. Also, she gave all the info needed not only about her place but of the neighborhood around as well. She was very accommodating to all our questions. We couldn't ask for more from a host. A plus factor too - we met her neighbors and they too were so hospitable. Definitely, we are going back there in the future again!

We loved having you! The swing got a good work out! .. and remember, there's no story without an adventure! "Frodo stayed home and planted a garden and smoked his pipe.." no one would read it! And Gary is offering a bocce rematch... Next time all bring your bikes and I'll send you to the Rail to Trail path along the River! Or come when it's warm and go swimming. Hope to see you again soon!

Magical forest and river

I was looking for a private campsite to have a solo retreat for the weekend, and Stephanie's land was absolutely perfect! The site it secluded, in the midst of the beautiful forest where the leaves were dropping like confetti in the fall, and just about a 10-minute hike down to the river. There's a huge rock jutting out to the river where I hung out, and it's where the stream meets the river. I saw all kinds of animals in the forest, and many different types of mushrooms! It truly feels like you have an entire forest all to yourself - so magical.
Stephanie was the warmest host, and super communicative - it felt like I was in the hands of family. She made sure I was well taken care of, and her sweet son Emmet helped me bring my things from the car to the site (a few minutes' walk).
There's a compost toilet at the base of the trail at the same place where you can park your car, but you don't really need it.
I'm excited to go back to Stephanie's place with my family in the near future and enjoy another season there!
