Our farm is right in the heart of Saxapahaw. You can walk 5-10 minutes to town down an old farm road and along a creek. Check out our animals - we almost always have baby pigs, goats and lambs. The bus is basic and rustic. It's a step up from camping.
The bus allows you to have a comfortable bed and roof on a beautiful farm in the heart of Saxapahaw. If you thought about camping, but didn't want to pack a tent or sleep on the hard ground, this place is for you. It's located directly behind the first structure you see on your left when you drive down the driveway. The bus is a 10 minute creekside walk to all that Saxapahaw has to offer - world class music venue, microbrews, farm to table restaurants, and the Haw River! There is an outhouse in a meadow nearby (4 minute walk from the bus). There is water access on the back of the barn. There is no kitchen; there is a fire pit with a grill.
You can access all 37 acres of the property - a map is included to point out how to get to town, good trails, and other amenities. You can park right at the barn which is the first structure on your left. The bus is behind the barn. Please park next to the basketball goal. Please do not enter any animal pens and assume all fences are electric.

We love guests! We are also busy and always in and out. One of us has a full time job off the farm and the other is managing the farm full time. Most of the time guests come and go and we don't get the chance to meet them. We are always available by phone/text/message.

No check-in procedure. There is no lock. If you are concerned, please lock valuables in your car.
Please remove shoes at the door.
Please wash your own dishes.
Please drive slowly on roads and check under your car for birds before leaving the parking area. If the red front gate is closed, please close it behind you. There is a chain but it’s never locked.
ANIMALS: Please do not enter any animal pens and assume that all fences are electrified. We have three dogs that guard the property and protect the animals. You may see them. They bark at first but are very friendly. There is also a black cat that sometimes comes down to visit our guests. Her name is Onyx. If any of our animals bother you, please let us know! Because other pets mess up the balance at our farm, we do not allow them and make no exceptions.
WEATHER: Heat – we provide fans. The spaces are hottest inside around 2-5pm and cool down significantly at night. Open all windows and plan to spend the hottest part of the day outside in the shade and by the creek. Cold –There is a quilt for the bed but if it will be very cold, we recommend warm clothes and bringing extra blankets or sleeping bag. Rain – paths can get slippery in the rain. Be careful!
BUGS: You will likely see a bug or two of some sort. The space should be tidy and swept but some bugs are unavoidable. NC is currently dealing with an overrun of stink bugs (mostly during late summer). They are the size of your thumb nail and look like they have a shield on their back. They are harmless but come out in the heat. They only smell (like cilantro) when disturbed. There should not be any wasp nests on the bus, but sometimes in the heat of the day, they fly in the windows. We’ve provided wasp spray. Sometimes mud daubers fly in (black and look like a wasp). They do not sting. You may see a spider. If you have a problem with any bugs, let us know and we can deal with them for you.
FIREWOOD: We try to keep some in the dry box near the fire pits, but encourage you to gather your own as well and we do not guarantee cut firewood. We do not keep paper and lighters on hand, but often other renters leave them behind. If you gather your own wood, please use the hand saw provided and do not burn outside of the fire pit. Please put out fires before leaving and before bed. For provisions, check out the General Store in Saxapahaw.
Privacy: sometimes we have a friend or family staying in the barn next to the bus. In the mornings, we have a farm worker who parks at the barn and gets farm equipment. You may hear him.
Please do not wear shoes on the bus. Assume all animal pens are electrified and do not enter them. Drive slowly on the gravel roads.
