Are you searching for the perfect magical place for your family, friends, or co-workers?

If you're planning a large gathering and need a unique location that can accommodate 62+ guests, The Camp is exactly what you've been looking for!

The Camp is the ultimate North Carolina mountain vacation rental for family reunions, corporate retreats, church groups, weddings, and multi-family getaways.

Our 4 houses can be rented individually or together for your exclusive use.

Located near Chimney Rock, North Carolina, The Camp has everything you need, including four homes with a combined capability of sleeping up to 62 people, a 5,000 square-foot social hall, a gymnasium with a full-sized wooden basketball court, an outdoor basketball court, an arcade, tennis courts, an athletic field, a heated pool*, an amusement-park worthy water slide, and a fishing pond.

The Camp is a pet-friendly, full-fledged dream-come-true vacation rental for groups who need endless entertainment for all ages, coupled with the comforts you'd expect from a five-star resort. The Camp is also an ideal escape from notoriety, offering luxury and exclusivity past its gated entrance.

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.

Eagle's Nest (also listed under HomeAway number 381552) is the largest of the 4 homes. It features handicapped-friendly access, separate quarters for the kids, and a luxurious master suite with a private bathroom and stone fireplace. There are total of 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms in this spacious, well-appointed home that sleeps up to 22 guests.

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. The Camp provides ample opportunity for both challenge and camaraderie, lending the quintessential experience of fellowship that people expect from a group retreat.

The amenities include:

Heated Swimming Pool (open May 1 - Nov.1)

Heated 160 ft long water slide (open May 1 - Nov.1)

Hot Tub (open year-round)

The Camp is located near several of the best attractions that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. A scenic seven mile drive brings you to Lake Lure, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey practiced dance moves in the moonlit water in the hit 80's movie Dirty Dancing. Just down the road from Lake Lure is Chimney Rock Park, a thousand-acre pet-friendly park, whose main attraction is breathtaking Exclamation Point which offers a stunning view of the gorge below. Nearby attractions also include gem mining, whitewater rafting, and hiking trails.

You'll find everything you ever dreamed possible right on-site at The Camp. Food delivery is available from dozens of Asheville restaurants. The Camp also provides plenty of firewood for those cozy campfires and delightful s'mores that will make you giggle like you haven't in years. Ideal for large gatherings, multi-family getaways, or an exclusive escape, The Camp is private, well appointed, and brimming with loads of fun for all ages!

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.

Darren Blum purchased this estate in 2005

Why Darren Blum chose Chimney Rock

There is nothing else like it! The Camp artfully combines luxurious, comfortable accommodations with a 150-acre fun park (complete with heated pool, a 150ft water slide, tennis courts, indoor/outdoor basketball, athletic field, and a huge Social Hall/Arcade/Game Room!) set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

What makes this estate unique

When you rent a home at The Camp, you not only get a gorgeous accommodation with all the comforts of home, but you also have FREE use of the fantastic amenities available on-site (see description of amenities above).

Two Very Happy Brides

  • 5 of 5
We had our wedding reception at The Camp and we could not have been more happy. We rented The Camp for a long 4 day/3 night weekend at the end of April so everyone we invited could just kick back, relax and enjoy themselves.
Our guests could not have been happier nor more astonished at the facilities as well as all the activities available at The Camp and around the local area. The Camp had something for everyone from luxurious houses, indoor/outdoor activities, game room or a spot just to get away.
The water slide was a huge hit with everyone, especially the adults. The kids loved fishing in the pond and playing on the fire truck. The photographers in the group hiked all over the 150 acres getting wonderful nature shots. And we all got an amazing calf workout from all the steps.
The Social Hall and Gym were a perfect setting for both our reception dinner and the dance. There were so many options to decorate and we took advantage of the rustic setting.
Our guests are still raving about the weekend. The best part was everyone truly reconnected with each other without using technology.
We would highly recommend The Camp for any event! Our wedding reception could not have been more beautiful!

On a side note, we did have several guests age 55+ and a few people with disabilities. Everyone managed just fine and we used a car to get around on the property when they started to tire. Otherwise you will thank yourself for engaging in a little cardio before arriving, there are a lot of stairs.
