My sister and I rented the Butterfly Patch Cabin, and it was perfect. Everything we needed to have a great time, air-conditioner, a comfortable bed, and bathroom and hot shower close by. We had an awesome time. We went Kayaking, Zip Lining and took a Moonshine Train Ride. Alan and Lenette are great hosts you couldn't ask for nicer people. We will definitely come back and stay again.

Date of stay: June 2017

We stayed at the Eagle's Landing cabin, which is the newest and highest cabin on the mountain. It was beautiful, spacious, and quiet. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and Alan and Lenette were so gracious and accommodating. Thank you for having us as part of your family and so looking forward to next year's visit. Hope it wasn't only once a year! Great people, great location, great roads to ride, and awesome weather!

Room tip: This is strictly cabins, RV's, tents for campers and motorcycle riders.

The Simple Life is never the same after you all leave and take the bright shining smiles from Florida back south for the weather. Can't wait until next year's excitement, who knows what we will get into. Hope you will be ready for the new Eagle's Landing next year. The pleasure is always ours, Safe / Joyful travels always.

PS: Lenette is coming your way in March.

We are glad that choose to stay at Simple Life Campground & Cabins. Me and my husband enjoyed this place a lot!
Amazing place with cozy, comfortable cabins.
It's close to everything: shops, restaurants and just 25 miles away from Dragon Tail.

Alan and Lenette are really nice hosts!

What an amazing place in the North Carolina mountains. We had a wonderful week meeting new friends, including the hosts. We enjoyed the relaxation here that can not be duplicated anywhere else. Lynette and Alan ensured we were comfortable and worry free. They took care of everything from homemade treats, riding suggestions, help with the motorcycle and genuine warmth and conversation. The perfect stay for a group of riders. I already reserved for next year!
