The space

please read ALL information about our space THOROUGHLY :-) !!! you are welcome to bring two well-behaved pets, but we ask that you pay a cash $10 per pet - per day fee upon arrival.
rustic cozy 12x12 "tiny" OFF GRID cabin {no electricity; potable water nearby but not at cabin) nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains of Appalachia. cabin is about 100 YARD lovely walk through our magical woodland forest from the parking area.

cabin has composting toilet nearby, propane camp stove, amazing library, sleeping loft, wood stove, campfire ring nearby.
loft has ladder access & futon; downstairs has a new double futon.
can sleep four comfortably, but has hosted 13 college kids at once!!
the cabin is surrounded by a lush forest canopy. this is a great place to come hang your hammock, read, write, make music, let go, relax & enjoy our sacred woodland farmstead.
we only accept TWO night bookings for weekends unless it is within 24 hours of checkin; when we receive one night requests, we will ask for a $35 cleaning fee. this is a farmstead with trail access to the cabins, free range animals, all sorts of weather related variables, so it is not like a hotel that's easy to rent for one night, nor is it that easy to visit and appreciate the space & land for one night.
we really appreciate you visitors, and want to make everyone comfortable in our rustic setting.

Guest access

picnic tables, hiking trails & boulders, a beautiful pond to fish or float! campfire rings, charcoal grill and great spots to hang your hammock.
amazing library with cozy wood stove heat. in winter when snowy, the trails around the land & nearby are excellent for snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. warmer weather invites mountain biking, hiking, & simply being in this amazing lush forest.

Interaction with guests

you may either be greeted by lisa, elizabeth, landrum or aydan, or our full-time steward, Mike.
minimal interaction unless otherwise desired...

Other things to note

please bring your own bedding...sleeping bags, pads, pillows, towels & FLASHLIGHTS.
there is an abundance of downed wood throughout the forest that you may collect & use for your fires, otherwise, you will need to bring you own wood. there is an axe at the cabin.
other suggested items to bring: shoes for trails, raingear/snowgear, warm clothes for chilly evenings.
hammocks, lounge chairs, candles, coffee, booze...what makes you comfortable!!
sprint & verizon work out here, but att doesn't get reception.

My husband, best friend and I enjoyed our stay in the cabin. Parking is quite far and carrying much up to the cabin is a hike. We really enjoyed having our own fire pit area.

Woodland Harvest Farm is just as described. Off-Grid, great library, nice hosts, peace and quiet. Just what we were looking for. Our dog never wanted to leave.

Before we arrived to this property, we asked if there were any special instructions because we were arriving in the pouring down rain and dark and were told there were none, and we ended up down the road where maps was telling us to go, which was not the correct place. The host who greeted us showed us where the water spout was and to our cabin and we did not get any direction to the toilet or shower. When we got to the cabin the host took our flashlight to fetch a working lighter. We asked for firewood and were denied because it was supposed to be warm all week (however we were soaking wet and freezing), and when he returned he just walked right in without knocking. We tried to sleep on the mattress in the loft, which was a dingy twin mattress and a camping pad. The futon was unsteady and damp, but we covered it with a blanket and slept there. When we woke in the morning we went to find the shower, which was open from the top and front, and the hot water was not working because it had been raining which we weren't warned about. The "composting toilet" was a handicap toilet seat over a bucket with the bottom cut out over a pile of sawdust. The entire property was overgrown, and appeared to be uninhabited, which was very unsettling. There were animals all over, but the 2 goats in the fence by what appeared to be the main house were covered in briars, and there were dogs and cats loose that did not appear to be taken care of. Had our first night gone smoothly, then I think we would have enjoyed our experience, but we didn't even end up staying the second night we booked. If you're up for an adventure this is definitely the place for you, but good luck.

We spent our wedding night here and will remember the experience for the rest of our lives. It was private and intimate. The spooky flare at night only added to the experience and our kitty cat guides Ashe and friend (black and white cat) kept us company and our wake up from that precious black and tan pup was just icing in the cake. We enjoyed the visit and feel that it was well worth the price. Thank you for a lasting memory for such a special time for us.

Just what we were looking for - a step up from camping and a place to unplug with our teenagers for the weekend. Quiet and private, since no one was staying in the other cabin (~100 ft away). Our kids enjoyed the many domestic and farm animals (although there was a dog and cat trying to get in our cabin both day and night). The cabin was as described and pictured, but dirty - just needs cleaning (swept, surfaces wiped) by previous guests or caretaker. Loft beds are a twin mattress and a 2" pad; futon is lumpy, hard, and sloping (bring pads and air mattresses to compensate). Be prepared for very primitive toilet - not a pit toilet which we were expecting - but a toilet seat over a bucket or elevated platform, 'composed' with sawdust. Overall a nice place if you are prepared - hope this review helps with that.

We were extremely disappointed with our stay! We live in the country; camp, mountain bike, and hike. We are not opposed to sleeping in a tent which would have been better than staying in this cabin. It was filthy and uninhabitable. We could hear mice and rats all night scurrying around. The cat that hung around for hours was hungry and wouldn't even allow us to sit down on the deck. She jumped up from the ground and clawed my husband. I felt bad for her because she just wanted something to eat which we did give her. The mattresses should be burned. I was excited to check out the books but they were not welcoming to all people but focused on one main theme. The place outside of the cabin is in major disrepair and needs to be cleaned up. I'm glad we didn't bring our son because it was not a healthy place to stay and there was no playground; just a trampoline with weeds growing through it and a broken tire swing. The "hot shower" was a mold and algae covered tub with broken screening around it and I wouldn't dare sit down on the filthy compost toilet. We really tried to be open-minded and the host did respond quickly to messages. Overall, we felt we were duped in to paying for something not accurately represented on the airbnb webpage. We left very early the next morning and will not be referring our friends to this site. This could be a nice place but needs a LOT of work before it is presented as a getaway for hardworking folks expecting to relax.

Response from Woodland Harvest Farm:
the woodland harvest folks would like to call bullshit on your review. we spoke with our caretaker who is extremely thorough; he said he's just cleaned both the shower & bathroom. the cabin utensils were all cleaned & the surfaces had been dusted. yes, there are mice. yes, it is dusty. yes, weeds grow tall in summertime along the trails. all those statements are clearly written in our description. your response is snooty and unfair. read our other reviews. we work very hard to make our space open & friendly to all. you clearly have opinions around our beliefs and views, because that library is incredibly diverse. it's true the one book you won't find in there is a KJB, because there are enough of those out there & it sounds like you brought your own. this is a despicable review written by a petty person who clearly doesn't understand airbnb. we have jumped through a zillion hoops to describe our space & attempt to accommodate folks from the outside, but this is a brazen & boldly false review.
