About the property

Luxury Tent With 4 bunk beds, Bathroom, Kitchen Pavillion on 22 acres

Located near beautiful blowing rock, you will find creekside camping. Especially beautiful in the fall, you can enjoy all the positives of camping without having to lug all of the gear. You won't have to pitch the tent and set up all the equipment. You'll just have to enjoy the peaceful setting by the creek and take advantage of the onsite hiking. Some trails lead to lovely streams, while others lead to beautiful mountain views, and still others lead into the pisgah national forest. Some just choose to rest and enjoy the woods while reading a good book creekside.

About Beth Vonnegut

We moved up from the heat of Florida to enjoy the cool freshness of the Appalachian Mountains.

Beth Vonnegut purchased this lodge in 2001

Why Beth Vonnegut chose Bailey Camp

We fell in love with the property because it is secluded, yet only about 10 minutes from downtown blowing rock.

What makes this lodge unique

The property is located on approximately 22 acres. Renters have the ability to also rent two nearby cabins. You can look at the cabins and their availability by checking #194090 and #112607 on homeaway. Great for family reunions, weddings, business groups, and scout groups.

Great Facilities

  • 4 of 5

The facilities were lovely. The tent interior was neat and clean! Not buggy at all! Yea! Each bed had an air mattress which was very comfortable and clean. The owners thought of nearly everything! It was great to have light, running water, grill and gas stove in the pavilion. Our kids loved running around in the woods, playing in the stream and exploring the grounds. The owners were very attentive to my calls. I had to call several times with questions - like specific directions to the site, details on use of some of the amenities, etc. They were very responsive. However, I just wish they had provided all this info with the reservation confirmation. I was glad I had 4-wheel drive to get up and down the driveway. It isn't required but was helpful.

Beautiful and secluded

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The area is big and secluded. It was a perfect getaway from busy city life. The place is hard to find - google maps led us to the wrong spot so we had to call Bob to get back on track - he was really helpful. We would definitely stay again.

One of our favorite places ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has visited this little spot 3 times. Our son loves playing in the stream and exploring the beautiful property around the camp site. We all love sitting by the huge fire pit at night. It is very private and the perfect spot for anyone seeking a little nature and adventure slightly off the grid. The property used to have a queen bed which we do miss; the queen has been replaced by bunk beds with air mattresses. The Owner's are very nice and quick to respond to any questions.

Perfect glam camp spot !

  • 5 of 5

Loved this part of the property the rent is perfect for families, camping, or a large group of friends. It kept the rain out, has a pavilion for grilling, and is conveniently tucked into the mountains. Wish we could have enjoyed the hiking trails !

Awesome, but recommend 4WD

  • 4 of 5

A couple setbacks had to be overcome staying there but this is a really cool place and overall, we had fun. We thought from the listing there would be a queen/full bed only, but turned out the tent has 4 sets of bunk beds (8 total twins). We'd luckily brought enough blankets to use as bottom sheets since we didn't have the right sizes packed. It was surprisingly cold in May, so do pack a lot of blankets and sleeping bags or possibly a propane heater for the tent. Our minivan had a good deal of trouble getting out of the place. The road is gravel and very steep. I suggest having 4WD. We almost called a tow...took us 30 minutes to get out the day we left because the van kept slipping on gravel in one segment of the road. Overall, it was a fun stay and the owners are very nice. Great hiking trails and our 3 kids loved the creek. We'll come back if we get a 4WD vehicle!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay and want to thank you for your review. We are continually making improvements and have had quite a bit of road work completed since your stay. Our neighbors mistakenly put gravel on the road instead of crush and run. I have all wheel drive and actually did a bit of sliding myself. We have contacted our neighbors and explained the need to put the proper medium on the road. We will be supplying a propane heater in case the temperature drops, as is common in the mountains.
