Looking for a personal retreat or get away ? 

Come escape to our beautiful, RUSTIC 34 acre wild homestead / farm. Camp in the woods, wander through the herb gardens, stroll through the woodland medicine path, hang out in one of our many hammocks, get your Zen on in the meditation hut, and eat your meals in our brand new garden pavilion. You will feel like you are out in the middle of " nowhere" ...yet... just 10 minutes away is funky, historic Shepherdstown . Catch some live music at Town Run or the Opera House, visit Lost Dog Coffee shop and Tonic Herb Shop (they carry our herbs :) ,  or dine in one of our fabulous restaurants (Blue Moon, Kazu, Maria's Taqueria, or Green Pineapple- pricier but yummy options include Domestic, and the Press Room ). Local farmer's market in town on Sundays is a treat ! 10 minutes away from a great swimming hole on the C and O Canal and Peddle and Paddle Rentals are available in town if you are up for kayaking , canoeing or biking. We are also 20 minutes from the Appalachian Trail  and several state parks !! We have resident barn cats Zeke, Sage and Luna who are very sweet , our  friendly little dog Tulsi , and our elusive cat Suki. *Some cell service does not work out here. We have AT and T. Verizon is spotty if it all. No pets please.

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!

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!
