The Farmstead's Vacation Rentals & Glamping Campgrounds near Lake Lure, NC

Cabins and hotels can only offer the same distractions of the modern world in a different place. To get different results, you need to do something different.

Perhaps it’s time to step away from the familiar and immerse yourself in the unfamiliar. Seek out experiences that challenge your perspectives, reconnect with nature, or stimulate creativity.

Instead of replicating the distractions of the modern world, embrace this opportunity to disconnect and discover something new!

Whether it’s a solo wilderness retreat, an immersive cultural experience, or a digital detox in a remote location, dare to venture beyond the ordinary at Lake Lure campgrounds.. to unlock the extraordinary!

Discover what it’s like to live off the land.

We invite everyone to take part in some of the farm’s activities, or simply enjoy the peaceful setting of the gardens and roaming farm animals. 

Our homestead experience will teach you methods of sustainable living that you can take back home and use in your everyday life. 

You can do everything, or pick and choose which homestead activities you find interesting, or enjoy other activities at our Lake Lure campgrounds.

Your level of participation is up to you!
