In the past, Beulah Land was a fully functioning farm but is now just a beautiful refuge down in the valley with an old farmhouse, a two story Guest House and the Henhouse at Beulah Land, my Airbnb Glampsite. Beulah Land Under the Redbud is an inexpensive way to do very simple camping in a beautiful place. The site includes a tent, a lantern, 2 sleeping bags, 2 towels and washcloths, a cooler, a washstand w hose, a table and chairs under a canopy, and 2 bathroom tents with camping toilets.
I have been renting out rooms in my house on Airbnb for three summers now. I would encourage you after you book to look at my other listings- there are tons of pictures of the property on those to give you a better idea of what its like around here. I rent out a few rooms in my house on a permanent basis, so we have an eclectic little community living down here now.
In an effort to provide an economical option for people who are happy to camp, I have priced the campgrounds around Boone and pretty much all of them charge at least $30 a night for JUST a site to set up your own tent and camping equipment. I had the space, the equipment and the time, so I have done it all FOR you. My equipped Basic Campsites rent for $25 for two people and are located in a semi private area surrounded by redbud trees, wild Honeysuckle and Grapevines which runs twenty feet from Brushy Fork Creek. They share the big bonfire ring and horse shoe pits with the Henhouse Campsite. Each of them includes a tent, a lantern, two sleeping bags, two towels and washcloths, a cooler, washstand with a hose in the honeysuckle, a table and chairs under a canopy, and two shared bathroom tents with camping toilets. The other tent site ("Beulah Land Under the Arbor") is set on the other side of the yard.
And coming soon will be the "Beulah Land Glamping Van," with a real bed, a kitchen station at the back of the van and a DVD player with a monitor.
For now if you rent both tents I will make a special offer for $10 off! This would make the site more accessible for a family of four! Near the camping area, there is a bonfire ring and horse shoe pits. These are for the use of any of our camping guests. We ask that if there are other campers, you respect a 12am curfew unless you are all camping together or all agree to hang out at the bonfire later than that. Also be aware that there are neighbors in the Guest House, respect their need for quiet late at night.
There is a large area that is pretty much clearly defined as the camping area. It includes access to the Creek that runs all the way the length of the camping area. I go over these boundaries when I introduce you to your lodging for the night!

I love my Airbnb Guests,
I try to let you set the tone for how much interaction you want. I usually am out walking around in the morning with my coffee and spend a lot of time gardening and working in the yard so you can usually find me!
REALITY CHECK: just to make sure we are on the same page- please read through this before you make a reservation. I have lived here at Beulah Land for thirty years. My husband and I moved here in 1987 to pursue a slower more purposeful form of life with our young four sons and my 97year old Grandma. In the ensuing years, we have raised and cared for flocks of chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, a milk cow, meat cows, sheep, goats, pigs, bunnies and just about every other kind of animal you can keep as a pet! As a matter of fact I am working on a book about our experiences that I hope to have available in the next few months. We have a lot of wonderful memories of that life, but thirty years later, things are very different. I am a happily divorced single Grandmother.
I offer three campsites at this time. My farm has about an acre of level land and another acre of hillside. The Henhouse campsite is situated up against the hill where there is a pretty rocky cliff overhang. It is located about twenty five or thirty yards from Brushy Fork Creek which runs the length of my property. It is a shallow creek, not much more than a few feet deep in any spot, but fun for creek walking. I cannot promise you will not see a water snake from time to time but I have never seen a poisonous snake on this property in thirty years.
There is an area between the Henhouse Site and the Creek that is surrounded by Redbud and Bradford Pear trees, a Grape Arbor and a huge wild Honeysuckle. This is where the two simple campsites are located and where later this summer I will be opening the Hippie Van for more upscale camping.
When you come across the bridge onto Beulah Land Lane (my driveway) you are on a long concrete drive that runs all the way down to my house which is at the end of the driveway. I have tried to include accurate pictures to depict the location because I don't want anyone to be disappointed- There is no big red barn with a silo- there used to be a barn, but it fell down one winter afternoon (theres a story that will be in my book!). There will be no hayrides in the fall. (though I do know an awesome place you can go for one)There are no farm animals or crops of anything but flowers. :-) There are a couple horses across the road that runs by our property. You are welcome to give them apples and carrots. There are no fields of wheat or hay, except across the creek on a five acre strip of land which is between the creek and Highway 421. You might see a tractor over there, ploughing up the field in the spring and then they grow field corn.
You can hear cars on the highway but at night its pretty quiet. We used to build dams all along the creek to make it sing at night. You are welcome to do the same. Now, I live here with my grand daughter and a few good folks who share the space with us. It is a serene and quiet spot in a lovely valley. I do raise a garden, but haven't got one planted this year because I had to have extensive surgery on my neck this spring.
We have a two story Guest House between my house and the Camping Area. It has two small apartments in it. Neither one of them are worried about a little noise at the campsite. If you look through the pictures, I hope you can get a good idea of what to expect.
While I love company and thrive on contact with people, I ask that you respect the space constraints of your camping area- you are welcome to spend as much time in the creek as you like- and have use of everything that is between you and the creek for about fifty yards. If you need something or would like to borrow a game you are more than welcome to come up to the main house.
I also add that you respect the privacy of the folks who are staying with me- I do rent out one of my rooms on Airbnb and I want my other guests to enjoy the tranquil and serene setting that we have here. I usually do a walkabout in the morning with my coffee so if you're up, I'll probably check on ya. I hope I have presented a clear and accurate description here of what to expect!
- No smoking or open flame inside the tent.
- Please respect a 10pm noise curfew, especially if there are other campers in the Henhouse.
I was born in Utah, raised in Miami, Florida but have lived near Boone, North Carolina for the last thirty years. It is the place I have always dreamed of living and in the house I waited my whole life for and I would never give up my home but I DO want to see the rest of the world. I love to travel and I LOVE Airbnb. I spent six weeks in Italy a couple years ago with my best friend and we stayed solely at Airbnb places. We had an amazing experience! I love to experience the world and its people in all the expression of their individuality! I love writing, art, music, theater as well as gardening, nature and animals! I have raised four sons and am raising one grand daughter. Some day I would like to go to Europe with her!
By the time she has graduated from high school, and I have paid off my mortgage, I plan to do some SERIOUS traveling!! For now, I limit myself to trips that are mostly less than a couple weeks. In the mean time, I love hosting my guests from all over the state, country and world! You all bring the world to me! So know that you are more than welcome!
Hmm. Do I have a life motto? I guess it would be to make every effort to live without regrets! I always try to prioritize my opportunities by this- do today what will not be available to you tomorrow! I home schooled my four boys for sixteen years, during which time I took care of three family members for a total of ten of those years. That is why the rooms are named after "Grandma" (my paternal Grandmother) and "Grammie" (my mama). And for the past eleven years, I have been raising my grand daughter who will soon be fourteen! She is a sweet lovely child, and reminds me every day of her father, my oldest son who sadly we lost at the age of twenty seven to an accidental overdose. After four boys it is perhaps the greatest challenge of my life thus far to raise a girl, ☺️ but I wouldn't have it any other way! There are no regrets in those choices.
I am also a writer and am working on a book of poetry/narrative and art. It will be called "Good Grief" if i ever finish it! I am presently taking a class at the local Jr College on computer art. I am learning the skills I will need to design the pages of my book with visual creativity. When someone loses a child, there seems to be a dearth of comforting materials, so I hope to create something beautiful that will be a comfort to those in need.
