Our massive 24-foot tipi can sleep up to 10 people and has a fire pit inside for chilly nights. It is centrally located within the playground making it a great spot for kids (but not so great if you want to sleep in).

The Tipi is a bring-your-own-bedding situation. There is a wooden futon frame that can hold an air mattress or we also have a few rental cots for $5 each per night.

Please note that tipis are OPEN at the top to let smoke out, which means rain CAN come in so prepare accordingly.

The space
HomeGrown HideAways is a hundred acre holler in the beautiful Red Lick Valley near Berea, Ky. We have all the good (beautiful views, babbling brook, hiking trails) and the bad (insects, barking dogs, poison ivy) that nature has to offer so come prepared. We recommend hiking boots, bug spray, and jackets for cool nights.

In addition to year-round outhouses, there is a seasonal bath house open from April through October (as weather permits) and a communal kitchen area for cooking meals, brewing coffee, buying firewood or farm-fresh eggs. YOU MUST CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF.

The farm has a steep and rugged 1.5 mile hiking loop, small playground, yard games, and a creek full of geodes. We're also close to the hiking trails at the Berea Pinnacles and our friends at Get Outside Ky rent canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, and e-bikes just 6 miles down the road.

We are a farm in the mountains so we have all the good (beautiful views, babbling brook, hiking trails) and the bad (insects, barking dogs, poison ivy) that nature has to offer so come prepared. We recommend hiking boots, bug spray, and jackets for cool nights. Be prepared to encounter INSECTS (mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers), WILDLIFE (deer, turkey, snakes, toads, and dare we mention the bear track we spotted one spring?), WEATHER (hot, cold, rain, snow), TOXIC PLANTS (poison ivy, stinging nettle, wild mushrooms), just to name a few.

Prepare to UNPLUG. There is NO CELL PHONE OR INTERNET CONNECTION at our place. Occasionally, some folks are able to catch a brief signal, but don't plan to have digital access. The closest place to get a decent signal is at the cemetery near the reservoir. There is a telephone you can use in our courtesy kitchen.

We live in a DRY county so if you enjoy an evening libation, you'll need to BYO.

Prepare to UNPLUG. No cell service, no wifi, just nature (but you can easily find us on the world wide web)! HomeGrown HideAways is a hundred-acre holler near Berea, Ky. It is owned and operated by Nathan & Jessa Turner, Jessa's mom, and a variety of pets and wildlife. All guests have access to our fully-stocked, chef-approved Community Kitchen which has COFFEE, and all major appliances (oven, stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker) plus pots, pans, utensils, dishes and a 3 bin sink. Clean up after yourself. We have a steep and rugged hiking trail, several fire pits, and are just 6 miles from Get Outside Ky where you can rent canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, and e-bikes. We do not have tv, internet, or cell reception. There are as many stars as there are bugs so come prepared for both! The farm's bath house is open from April through October (or whenever temps remain above freezing for an extended period of time) and features 4 flush toilets and 2 solar-heated showers. In the winter months, the bathrooms inside the Community Kitchen are available. We ask that you leave your pets at home, but you are welcome to snuggle ours. If you don't like dogs, our place may not be a good fit for you since our critters get pretty excited to meet new guests and may jump on you (we promise we're working on training). For those with service animals, please be aware that there are coyotes, hawks, and other wildlife that might be a danger and we cannot guarantee how our dogs might react to your assistant. Please chat with us ahead of time to make sure we're the right option for you. We love sharing our beautiful farm and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

During your stay

The residents of HomeGrown HideAways recognize that you're probably visiting our farm to escape the daily hustle and bustle of regular life and might be looking for some peace and quiet away from other humans. No worries! While you are likely to see residents puttering around the farm doing chores, you're under no obligation to make chit-chat with us (unless, of course, you need something). On the flip-side, we'll never turn away anyone that wants to keep us company while we weed the garden!

We are a working farm so sometimes you can expect to hear things like tractors, chainsaws, roosters, barking dogs, coyotes, etc. We can't do anything about the roosters or coyotes, but if you want a relaxing afternoon nap in the hammock, just let us know and we'll work on quieter chores.
