Tobacco Farm Camp shares a 5 acre playground with Lamplight Inn, a country bed and breakfast. The 15 old buildings offer a unique experience with the Shed as a venue for events, the corn crib screened gazebo, the pack house fitness center and the curing barn mini museum. Water sports at Kerr Lake, the Raleigh Road outdoor cinema, and the Ridgeway Opry House are a few of the nearby attractions. On the farm, you can fish, play crochet, shoot hoops, pitch horseshoes, build a bonfire, do yoga on the platform in the woods or walk the 7 ring labyrinth.

Fantasy Garden Friends

Dolly’s friends are now with her in the Fantasy Garden.  I want you to meet Yellow Fellow, Mr. Kissable and Kitty Kat.

Then look for Florence Flutterbye as she sways in the breeze near the gazing ball and moonshine jug.

What do you do with a bare spot under the huge shade tress where nothing will grow?  I love a challenge and decided to create a fantasy garden.  People driving down the road have actually stopped to inquire about the garden.  What fun!

A little girl finds her dreams  sprawled on her tummy on an old bench under the shade of the trees.  Nestled beside her is a contented cat and a whimsical whirligig of a cow jumping over the moon.  Stepping stones meander through this mulched bed surrounded by colorful potted flowers but the show stopper is the tower of tipsy clay pots.  The  pots are alive with different shade plants and stacked on a re-rod for support.  Yes, there is a live cat in the picture.  Taffy is enjoying the garden, too.  The fantasy is a labor of love unjoyed by young and old alike.
