Looking for a personal retreat or get away ?  Escape to our beautiful, RUSTIC 34 acre wild homestead / farm. 

This is a working medicinal herb farm, a community of beautiful souls,  as well as our home. Please read all of our guidelines for camping here thoroughly, so that you can be prepared ahead of time !!!

Feel free to camp in designated camping areas in the woods, wander through the herb gardens, stroll through the woodland medicine path, hang out in a hammock, get your Zen on in the meditation hut, and eat your meals in our  garden pavilion. You will feel like you are out in the middle of " nowhere" ...yet... just 10 minutes away is the funky, historic town of Shepherdstown .

Looking for live music and a place with a great local vibe ?  Town Run Community Taphouse is the place to go. Lost Dog Coffee shop will meet all your caffeinated and mind bending needs. If you are here on a weekend, Pressed Flour is open and has “the best” fresh baked pastries on the planet. *Just an FYI- they never open on time, but are totally worth the wait. Tonic Herb Shop (they carry our herbs :) is a must visit for soaking up the old time apothecary feel . They also have  a juice bar and a huge selections of herbal products to choose from. Dine in one of our fabulous restaurants - $ Blue Moon Cafe, $$ Bistro 112 , $$ Kome or $$$ The Press Room. Looking for a quick inexpensive bite ? Lelle Belle, Maria's Taqueria, or Green Pineapple. 

Our  local  Sunday Farmer's Market in town is awesome ! We are 10 minutes away from the C and O Canal and the Potomac River. Shepherdstown  Peddle and Paddle in town offers rentals for kayaking , canoeing or biking. We are also 20 minutes from the Appalachian Trail and several state parks - Harper’s Ferry, Washington Monument State Park, Gathland State Park , and Catoctin Mountain Park  !!  You may meet our happy go lucky, little farm dog Tulsi . She is very friendly ... please just let her sniff you first.

We offer a variety of classes and events on the weekends as well. Small groups... not to worry. We have 34 acres, so there is plenty of space. If you would like to know what we are offering for the  weekend, you can visit our website sacredrootswv.com.

Hillary and crew have created a beautiful oasis just outside of DC that was a joy to discover. We camped in solitude, surrounded by nature, and enjoyed exploring both the farm and nearby Shepherdstown. We particularly appreciated the butterflies and gracious people we encountered on the farm.

My friend and I came here in late August and we had a great time! We didn't actually interact with our host face-to-face; I think they were busy but that was fine as we were looking for a private weekend. Hilary gave instructions about the site before we came and we had no trouble finding anything. The farm is really nice and we loved how private it was, just you and nature really. We saw a fair amount of deer which was great! We had a great time taking walks during the evening. We really loved our stay! We had brunch in Sheperdstown which is nearby and had a fun time exploring the town. We absolutely recommend this campsite to anyone who is looking for some peace away from it all. We are from DC so we really needed this peaceful weekend. Thanks so much Hilary; we really enjoyed our stay!

My friend and I loved camping at Sacred Roots Herbal Sanctuary! This was such a fun find and was the perfect weekend escape from DC. We had so much fun exploring the farm and especially loved lounging in the hammocks near the pavilion. Hillary was out of town during our stay, so we didn't get to meet face-to-face, but she made sure we had all the information we needed ahead of time to have a seamless visit. Would happily camp here again!

What a wonderful and magical space! Hillary & her husband have created a true garden of Eden on their property. The space is rustic and private, but still, has the benefit of a hot shower + compost toilet. There are tons of things to explore on the property, the herb garden, medicine trails in the forest, and a lovely space for hanging in a hammock and enjoying the view (especially at night when the fireflies are dancing!). The town, Shepherdstown, is only a short 10 minute drive and offers plenty to explore, eat, and connect with the local community. Thursday & Sunday's farmers market are a MUST. There are plenty of other activities, including swimming, kayaking, hiking and more to enjoy in the area. I could not recommend this space more & will back again!

This rustic little farm is gorgeous. We had fun wandering around the property, hanging in the hammocks, and kicking it with the chickens. They’ve got an water pump, outdoor shower and an outhouse (immaculate as far as outhouses go). The sites are well kept. And a few hundred yards from one another, though we set up near the yurt. Even though it’s not completely private—-it pretty much felt like it. We had the good fortune of running into a resident carpenter on the farm who was nice enough to save our butts and loan us his stove after we got the wrong fuel for ours.

We came in on a rainy day, and the mosquitoes were minimal. It’s close to Shepardstown, and 30min to Harpers Ferry. Great little farm to spend time, near lots of things to go see and do. We didn’t get to meet the hosts but communication was easy and getting around on the farm is even easier. Can’t wait to go back!

Lovely peaceful night on an off the grid herb farm. We felt safe and comfortable. The mobile fire ring was great and the free fire wood much appreciated. I will also admit i really enjoyed the (super clean and comfy) outhouse, thank you Hillary and the whole team at Sacred Root!

I highly recommend staying At Sacred Root! It’s a beautiful, peaceful spot that is such a wonderful alternative to camping at loud campgrounds with tiny camping spots. It’s also a great alternative, if you are a single woman looking to do some solo camping in the area. I felt very safe. Hillary is wonderful and the work they are doing at Sacred Root is very inspiring (I was lucky to be camping on a day, when they were having a plant sale). It’s a short 10 minute drive to the fantastic town of Shepherdstown, so the location can’t be beat! Highly recommend!

Hillary was a wonderful and thoughtful host, although we didn’t see her much as we were given our privacy as well. She so kindly offered us free fresh strawberries from her garden when we woke up!

The campsite itself was beautiful, surrounded by trees. It was fun to explore the site as campers were welcome to use the meditation hut, herb garden, etc...

I would definitely come back again! :)
