In a valley between 2 mountains 5 miles from Mountain City, Tn. About an hour from Johnson City, Bristol, and Boone, NC.
Inverter generators preferred. None before 8:00 AM or after 9:00 PM out of respect for our neighbors.
Clear open sky for solar panels.
You will need an extension for power cord, depending on where you park. Water is available at 3 locations.
Prefer no loose dogs but okay if kept under owner's control and cleaned up after.
Keep your butts if you smoke. There is a trash collection site about a mile from our house if you need to dispose of trash, with a $2 minimum fee.
Propane refills available about 6 miles away.
No loud music or parties.
Paved road right up to our driveway. I park a 19' travel trailer, 24' pontoon boat, and other smaller trailers with no problem. Two blocks off a major highway. One sharp right turn off Dillon Rd. onto Old Butler Rd., no long driveway, and no low hanging trees or power lines.
About an acre of open space to park the tow vehicle or room to stay connected, if desired. We have 2 spots with 30 amp service and water. One is accessible on gravel for the smaller rigs (24' or so) and one is on grass for larger rigs. Vans or truck campers that don't require power are able to pull just off the road and park on flat ground. Another water source is close for them.
We hope to be able to start travelling again this spring and may not be around to host in person but will work out details on an individual basis if you need a place while we are gone. Anytime we are here, you are welcome.
1 hour from Linville Falls in NC, Virginia Creeper Trail in Damascus, Va. for great bicycle rides, 45 minutes from Bristol Caverns, 15 minutes from The Appalachian Trail, 10 miles from Watauga Lake, 30 minutes from Backbone Rock & The Snake in Shady Valley, TN. We are about an hour from at least 3 different access points to The Blue Ridge Parkway.
We had a wonderful stay at Dave and Kelly’s property, beautifully located between the mountains. Friendly hosts with lots to talk about!! Nice meeting you and thanks for your hospitality.
Cozie spot, very generous Hosts. Would love to visit them again someday.
Kelly and Dave were great and very friendly hosts! They were ready to help us get parked as soon as we arrived. They even had a campfire ready to go for us! The area was quiet and we had wonderful conversations with both Kelly and Dave! The scenery on the way in and out of the area was gorgeous as well, we would stay here again!
