Što ćete raditi

Visit our four acre mini-farm right on The Creeper Trail and the South Fork of the Holston River. You'll meet all eight of our donkeys (six miniatures, one standard, and one critically-endangered mammoth) and get to see their individual personalities and herd dynamics up close and personal. You'll learn about equine safety, the importance of the donkey in history, each animal’s personal story (most are rescues), and their daily care. You'll also be able to brush, pet, and take pictures with our beloved pets.

***Per our insurance, the minimum age of participants is twelve years old.

***Upon arriving to our farm, you will be asked to sign a liability waiver to participate in this experience. This keeps our farm safe and our insurance company happy. Thank you in advance so much for understanding.

***Per Airbnb, you are required to wear a mask when you are on our farm. (Please note that everyone who lives at our residence is fully vaccinated.)

***Please park at Alvarado Station, a public parking venue (with public restrooms) approximately 100 yards from Abingdon Donkey Lodge. After you park, you'll walk past the church on The Creeper Trail and then cross the street to our home. We're on the corner of Alvarado Rd. and Denton Valley Rd. There are signs for Abingdon Donkey Lodge.

If you need accommodations due to a disability or personal preference, please let us know.

I am the co-owner of Abingdon Donkey Lodge and the caretaker of our herd of eight donkeys. I am a 20-year educator and a best-selling author in the field of PTSD and secondary trauma. I also teach writing workshops that combine memoir writing with equine therapy. I first became interested in miniature donkeys when exploring animal therapy as a treatment for trauma survivors, myself included. I found miniature donkeys to be much calmer, less reactive, more inquisitive, and easier to bond with than their 1000+ pound full-size horse relatives. I met my first miniature donkey four years ago, and that very day I knew these sweet, fuzzy, compassionate, comical long-eared equines would be a lifetime passion. I can't wait to share them with you!

We absolutely loved our donkey experience! The animals are sweet and well-cared for, and the property is amazing. Christal is a wonderful host!

So much fun! The stories of the donkeys' rescues made the time spent with them even more special. Some of these animals who love attention were once afraid to be touched. Well, not anymore! Under Christal's patient guidance, there were eight donkeys who loved being petted, brushed, and talked to so much that they cried when we left. How much for a lifetime membership?

If you are in the area, this is a must do! This experience is both educational and fun! As we interacted with our new donkey friends, Christal shared fun facts about donkeys and introduced us to our new friends and their stories. We had such a great time at this experience!

This visit was amazing! Christal was so friendly and easy to talk to. We got to pet and brush the donkeys the whole time, and we got to learn all their different personalities and histories. Christal was very knowledgeable about donkeys and how they are similar and different to other equines. This was definitely a highlight of my family’s long weekend in Abingdon VA/Mountain City TN/Boone NC. I would definitely go back!

This was an amazing experience! Christal was a fantastic host and the donkeys had such personalities. We loved getting to know their stories and learning more about donkeys in general. The area is also beautiful and right off of the creeper trail. I would definitely recommend visiting Abingdon Donkey Lodge!
