Cloud 9 (also listed under HomeAway number 257078), the home closest to the deck and poolside action, is an entertainer's delight, boasting a huge screened-in porch perfect for outdoor meals, two family rooms, both with oversized sectional leather couches, and a bar complete with mini-fridge and wide assortment of cocktail glasses. Cloud 9 is an spacious and gracious home offering 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and downstairs area perfect for the kids. It comfortably sleeps 22 guests. The Owner's Suite is an additional one-bedroom part of Cloud 9. It is magnificently-appointed with vaulted ceilings, high windows, breathtaking views and a private balcony, and an old-fashioned claw foot tub. The Owner's Suite must be rented separately for an additional fee. Please inquire for rate and availability.

It features handicapped-friendly access, separate quarters for the kids, and a luxurious master suite with a private bathroom and stone fireplace.

The Cottage (also listed under HomeAway number 381556) located underneath Eagle's Nest, has its own easily accessible entrance and a private covered deck that make it truly separate. It offers a smaller, one-bedroom space for guests who may need more privacy. It sleeps up to 6 guests.
The Pond House (also listed under HomeAway number 381555) is the newest home on the property. It is aptly named because of its location next to the fishing pond. The Pond House is just right for a large family or a group of friends, accommodating up to 10 people, with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The open concept great-room of the house gives it a community feeling; while the large deck invites you to relax in a rocking chair and enjoy panoramic views of The Camp and the mountains beyond.
Each of the homes offers something unique to meet the expectations of your group; and each is fully equipped for a relaxing experience.
We also have a Rustic Bunk House that can sleep an additional 60 guests in the warmer months.
Adventure awaits everywhere at The Camp, providing plenty of chances for bonding and character building. Whether it's a group hike to 'the bear cave,' a baseball game on the playing field, basketball in the gymnasium, a jog along the paved path to take in the view of Little Mount Pisgah, an invigorating round of volleyball, or taking in the beautiful mountain views in a relaxing rocking chair, there's something for everyone at The Camp. There's even an old fire truck to add to the jovial atmosphere. In the evening, sitting by the campfire offers warm moments to share memories, tell exciting stories, and roast marshmallows.
The Camp has wireless internet, allowing guests to keep up with their 'real world' connections. A fully-equipped exercise room offers everything needed to maintain exercise routines; including Bowflex machines, treadmills, and a stationary bicycle.
For nighttime entertainment, there are wide-screen plasma televisions in each of the homes, an game arcade stocked and ready for a ping-pong or pool tournament, or a hot tub beckoning you to come for a relaxing soak.

About Darren Blum
For nearly eight decades prior to its renovation, The Camp operated as Camp Mishemokwa where hundreds of children spent summers having all the classic first-time-at-camp experiences.
In 2005, The Blum Family purchased the 150-acre property, spending countless dollars and tireless hours rebuilding, renovating, and giving The Camp a new lease on life as an exclusive vacation rental property.
