Description

We began homesteading Steepleview Farm 35 years ago. We turned an abandoned farm into a paradise. With nature trails, wide open spaces, a beautiful 1 acre lake, dock and gorgeous skies you can relax, take a walk, fish, feed the horses, feed the chickens and enjoy a truly relaxed time with nature. We are an educational farm and love to talk about how to reconnect with the earth, get back in rhythm with the seasons and join the harmony of nature all around. Lots of wildlife to see, plenty of birds, huge skies, great sunsets, astounding sunrises and privacy. There is a lot of history here from the major old Buffalo Trail that wound through this country, to the location of an old one room school house on the property, to an intriguing connection to a mob hideout right next store, you will come for the quiet, stay in peace and leave with stories to tell. For more information visit our website or give us a call. We hope to see you HERE!

House Rules

ARRIVAL
All guests must arrive before dark, local time. Despite detailed directions, after dark it is hard to visualize
the parking area and despite detailed directions, guests continue to turn down our private driveway, not
the RV parking entrance. Our driveway is narrow, low hanging branches and no turnaround. It creates a
very dangerous situation for you which is easily avoided if you can see the intersection ahead of you
where the sign to the RV entrance is prominently displayed.

CHECK OUT: Check out time is 12 noon.

GENERATOR USE:
If other guests are staying during your visit, we request that generators be quieted after 10 pm. If you
have any special considerations such as medical equipment, very small children or other needs, let us
know and we can locate you farther from others for your necessary generator use.

GENERAL CAUTIONS:

No fires except in designated fire rings and only upon granted permission.

If you see any tree stands or blinds
along the way, please do not climb into
or on any of them, they may be unsafe

** Watch bees in our bee yard from a safe distance. **

Do not cut or pick any vegetation
without permission.

** Do not open or enter any buildings
except the horse barn where a supply of
carrots is usually right inside
and in sight for you to feed the horses
over the fence.

** Feed horses carrots at arm’s length **
Be aware, HORSE CAN BITE!

***SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING
OUR NATURE WALK***
While on our nature walk, please
be aware that the ground may be uneven,
roots, rocks and slippery spots
will be encountered.
Appropriate footwear and leg protection
rom the occasional thorny growth,
sticks, stumps etc. is advised.

The longest trail is approximately 1 mile,
there are shorter trails and comfortable
wildlife viewing areas to rest.

This is not a “hike” so to speak,
but intended to be a leisurely stroll
under the canopy of large trees
with informational signs along the way.
However, some hills may be steep
and some parts of the trail require exertion.

Because all recreational activity
at Steepleview Farm is free of charge
we are exempt under Kentucky Law
from any and all liability.
Have a SAFE and Enjoyable Visit!

Access Road Conditions

First and foremost: Do Not use our property address in your GPS. It takes you to our private drive.

Instead use the directions we provide you once we accept the stay.

Your map, your WAZE app, your GPS and your intuition will probably pick the wrong route. Over 1000 visitors with RV's come each year. Our directions are based upon their experiences and we have designed the best and safest route for you. Trust us, trust them, USE THE SPECIFIC DIRECTIONS WE SEND YOU and it will be smooth sailing. No tight corners, no overhead issues for any size rig

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

We are a large farm with plenty of parking that accommodates thousands at a time during events. So we have lots of parking available of all sorts to suit you.

Amazing Stay

Mr. Carey greeted us and welcomed us to the farm on Sunday when their farm was closed.

The farm is beautiful, quiet, and was a relaxing stay.

Very thankful to stay, which allowed us to go to “The Ark Encounter” and see friends in South Gate / Cincinnati.

Beautiful stay!!!

We stayed at this lovely farm on our way from Michigan to North Carolina. The communication before our stay was helpful and timely, the directions to the farm were clear, and our time on the farm was SO wonderful!!! We loved walking the property, greeting the chickens, feeding the horses, and watching the sunset over the fields as we ate dinner next to a field of sunflowers. We especially loved chatting with our host and learning about his heart and passion around organic farming (and eating some of their yummy produce and honey!). Thank you for sharing this stunning “sanctuary” with us- we loved our short time so much!!!!

The hosts were very accommodating. It was very peaceful and quiet for sleeping. We enjoyed touring the farm and were able to purchase fresh organic produce in season.

An overnight in the field was appreciated

I believe I requested to stay when they were usually closed tho they were kind enough to let me stay in their field. Never saw anyone and I left early the next morning. Beautiful sunset!

Lovely place.

We had some communication issues at first. The farm was very pretty but seemed smaller than I had expected, however we arrived late & left early so we weren’t able to meet the host in person or see everything that was available. We had a quiet, restful night in a lovely area.

Wonderful spot.

This was our first WB, and it will be hard to beat. Our gracious host greeted us upon arriving. The lots were level and grassy. There is much to explore at the farm, including a pond that has fish. Not too far is the Ark and the creation museum.

Wondeful place!!

Love this place! Very quiet and peaceful place to relax and recharge. Camped here for the weekend with friends and loved it. The owner is great and excited to have guests. Picked up some slalsa and honey on the way out that looks delicious! I'll be back! Thank you so much for hosting us!

Steepleview was beautiful. Kids went fishing in the pond. We took a hike. Purchased garlic scales, salsa & BBQ sauce.
Highly recommended!

Friendly people and beautiful place.

Marc warmly welcomed us to Steepleview Farm and encouraged us to wander around his beautiful property. The horses are gentle and handsome, the chickens were fun and also beautiful. Marc and Harriet have a beautiful place and we're led to a nice spot on the hill. Traffic on127 was fairly constant but not bothersome. We enjoyed a peaceful stay and left with salsa, radishes, BBQ sauce and fresh eggs. Highly recommend!

Excellent

We very much enjoyed our time at Steepleview Farm. They were great hosts and helped us feel at home. Loved the items we purchased and actually purchased more before leaving. We will definitely be back!! (It is definitely helpful to follow his detailed directions for getting to property if you have a big rig!)

Sharing a Passion!

Our hosts have a wonderful farm they share with others! They have convenient sites they make available to those who want to stay. It is an easy drive to both the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. While at Steeple View Farm you can go for walks and enjoy beautiful trails throughout the property. It is worth your visit just to spend time with the host and learn about the food they grow! And you can leave with some delicious and very healthy things they grow and make right on the farm.

Beautiful and Quiet

We really enjoyed our stay here. The weather was pretty yucky, so we didn't get to see much of the property. We will be staying here again in the future.

Sweet treat & a lovely stay!

What a treat to stay at Steeple View Farm! We had no idea what an amazing place we were pulling into. We arrived to a spot at the front of the farm with beautiful Kentucky hill views. Our host greeted us and gave us a history of this working organic farm which we SO enjoyed hearing. We learned that they have a YouTube channel where our host regularly posts to educate those interested in organic farming and needless to say, we are now subscribers 😊 This farm has it all! Far too much to include in a review, so we HIGHLY recommend staying here or at least stopping by if you're in KY. You'll be so glad you did! Since the season is just starting, we weren't able to see the amazing sunflower field but most assuredly will stop again when we can enjoy them and picking up some farm fresh organic produce from their stand! Luckily there was still fall honey harvested from their hives and we made sure to stock up on both regular and even their Bourbon Honey. What a treat! We're excited to revisit Steeple View again in the future.

Beautiful Kentucky Farm Near the Ark Encounter

Worth the price of our membership for this stay alone! Very friendly host had plenty of space for our 40’ class A and made us feel welcome. Let us walk all through their nature trails and feed the horses and chickens. You can tell they are passionate about their farm and excited to share with others!

Peaceful farm setting - Great Hosts

We were greeted upon arrival & directed to our perfectly level, gravel site. We had views of the steeple and were right next to their old roadside farmstand site. It was a peaceful place to spend our couple nights, walk our new puppy on the nearby grassy areas and watch the sunset. Unfortunately, the huge rainstorms came overnight & with our early departure, we did not get to walk to the Farm to enjoy all there is to see there & buy some of there produce.
We hope to return to this very convenient location to enjoy this area more next time! We Highly Recommend!

Too rainy, but still great!

Really wished we would have been able to walk the farm and enjoy all there is to see.
Unfortunately, it had rained all night.
Host provided easy to follow directions, even from our previous stop (Ark Encounter).
Hope to visit again!

Plenty of space

Peaceful and quiet place, the host is great and offer me another spot to park away from the main road because I have a little kid.

Home Away from Home

We were greeted amiably by the Farm Caretaker. He helped me get the vehicle level and gave us information about the farm: it's activities, trails, etc. Ace, our Labrador, loved the pond. He's always ready for a swim. He is around cats and chickens at home, so we didn't have to be concerned about him chasing either.
We bought some honey and produce. The tomatoes were delicious.
We will return whenever in the area again.

Great Location to Visit the Ark Encounter

Boondocking at Steeplview was very quiet and relaxing and a perfect base for visiting the Ark Encounter about 45 minutes away. Easy to find, the host lays it all out in his directions. The Harvest Host signage makes it simple. No problems pulling in. Our gravel spot was dead level so no need to put out a ramp. Nice view of the church and steeple even though it rained two out of three days we were there. We missed meeting our hosts as they were out but they were in communication with us and their employee helped us buy farm fresh eggs at their farm stand. Thank you for your kind hospitality! Hopefully we'll meet someday!

Great stay!

Arrived on a drizzly evening and stayed one night. The host asked me to call when I was close so he could meet me upon arrival. He drove a golf cart and led me right to a parking spot.
Super friendly people and a good place to boondock. Woke up to a gorgeous day with a beautiful view.
We visited the chickens and fed a carrot to the horses.
Such a picturesque location!

Fantastic view

What a fantastic view - a great place to try out our solar for the first time - hi up on a hill with a wonderful view of the church steeple. We loved listening to the songs of the coyotes at night - highly recommend this wonderful boondocking site

Very pleasant and welcoming host

Lovely view, place to walk and experience farm life and buy produce. We were busy sightseeing elsewhere so couldn’t take full advantage of our surroundings. We’ll definitely come back again to do that.

Beautiful location.

Nice place to stay. There were several guests, and we enjoyed visiting with them. The location is beautiful, watching the sunrise over the church steeple. There was plenty of room, with parking for a variety of rigs, small and large.

Peaceful And Produce

What more could you ask for. A very peaceful stay and we purchased some wonderful produce while we were there. Very nice hosts and we went to The Ark Encounter not far away during our stay. They had some great knowledge for growing a garden too!

Beautiful Land and Gracious Hosts

Wow! What an experience! It is obvious from the moment you pull up to Steepleview Farm that Mark and his wife have spent quite a bit of time and money to accommodate RVs of every size. There are large open fields with white gravel driveways to ensure easy pull through access.

The land is well maintained with many garden plots (the RV parking was near the sunflower plot). Mark and his wife were very welcoming and invited us to explore the grounds including the barn where the horses are, the chicken coop, their produce stand (where we bought two jars of their homemade salsa), and the miles of hiking trails spread throughout their 100+ acres of land.

We arrived in a 22 foot camper being towed by a Toyota 4runner. We overheard Mark mention that they had someone arriving in a 40 class C with a trailer in tow. They will have no problem accommodating any size RV. We had between 2 and 3 bars of Verizon 4G cell coverage.
