We live just off the Blue Ridge Parkway on a private road. Quiet is amazing along with the best temps in NC. We have grills and Firepit available if the desire to cook or relax is strong. Suggested Local Attractions:Doughton Park is less than 8 miles down the parkway and Sparta, NC is about 6 miles up 21. It's very rural community and nature is the attraction. We have many deer and other wildlife along with a huge supply of birds. The local hiking trails and quiet are our ways of getting out. Sparta does have restaurants and grocery stores. Off the Hill we are less than an hour from "Mayberry" otherwise know as Mt Airy, NC. There is a National Park campground with dump stations less than 7 miles down the BRP.
Vehicle Suitability Information
Quiet is our offer to everyone. We enjoy company and relaxation and those are our rules. This is not a place with loud music just conversations and good times. We are campers and love to help share knowledge and experiences. We have 3 dogs and the neighbor across the way has pets also. So well behaved pets are a must and they should be leashed to minimize any issues.
Access Road Conditions: Easy access, Private gravel road. It is up a hill. and the turn in to the driveway may be tight for a novice rig driver. UPS and other deliveries make it in no issues. There is no room for trailers/pull vehicles. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: No parking on street. This site is really only good for self contained vehicles because there is no room for truck and trailer.

A wonderful first BD's experience. It was a pleasure to spend time with such kind and friendly people. And all our pets got along too.

We were met upon arrival and had a nice visit. Thank you for your service Mr. Mountainside. Parking was great for us, we have a van. I wouldn't park anything bigger than the 25ft suggested. Both Mr & Mrs Mountainside came out for a visit even though allergies were getting them down. Thank you! We were even offered wifi access. How nice since we had no cell signal! Great cool night! Enjoyed it tremendously!
