being surrounded by lush forest, with the sounds of softly running creeks and streams.
Where hummingbirds chirp and tree frogs sing.
Walk along the meandering mile-long private road taking in the scent of summer wildflowers or a short hike up the hill revealing the perfect sunset with long-range views.
Settling into a pair of Adirondack chairs around a campfire with a glass of wine watching fireflies dance.
Curling up under thick/soft blankets and waking from a good night’s sleep (in a queen bed) to gourmet French pressed coffee.
Truly disconnecting from the 'real world' and having a chance to reconnect with nature/your significant other, friends, or your inner child. (or all of them)
….Welcome to WILDHAVEN.
Each WILDHAVEN glamping experience is unique and well-appointed compared to traditional tent camping.
Join us for a long weekend (or more!) for a getaway that allows you to truly enjoy the wilderness surrounding you . . . and each other.
Since we have always loved being out in nature—but also prefer things like a cozy bed to rest our heads at the end of a great hike, a glass of wine around a private fire, and waking up to a freshly ground cup of coffee. -We have created our intimate ‘glamping’ experience to reflect an adventure we would personally love.
Glamping is a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping. (Think cozy beds, a place to cook your meals, pretty décor while being surrounded by forest and night sky)
Peace. Privacy/ Proximity to so much of what the NC Blue Ridge Mountains has to offer within a short drive.
(Note: We are a working micro-farm and active land rejuvenation project. So, you may see us out and about watering plants, feeding our chickens, running our tractor, walking our dogs or building something. Or—not at all.;-) The acreage is over 30 acres and we will always wave hello but we leave our guests to the peace they came here to find.)
You can expect our glamping accommodations will be well thought out and we will add new amenities as the years go on. However-we are still a rustic/rural setting. We are not ‘traditional campers’ ourselves (well—one of us isn’t;-) so we try and offer the creature comforts we love to have when out in nature (like fresh coffee beans and linens to sink into at night—but it is also not a full-service hotel.
Expect hills to walk, rocks to step over, bugs (the summer fireflies on our land our SPECTACULAR!) , animals spotting, wildflowers, changing weather (bring layers!) and the ability to do as much or as little as you would like.
Airstreams and glamping tents tend to be luxe for camping—but petite. We recommend you bring only what you need to make your stay amazing. (your parking will be very close by so non-essentials you’d like to bring can be accessed easily as you need them, allowing you to keep your sleeping accommodations uncrowded.
Suggestions on what to pack:
Oh my—you are in for an absolute treat.
The NC High Country is full of astonishing beauty, fun little mercantile/restaurants as well as fine dining nearby. Hiking/Biking/Snow Tubing/Fly fishing/Skiing—or doing absolutely nothing but curling up with a good book and glass of wine. We are within driving distance of everything mountain life has to offer.
