Up at The Natural Gathering Grounds (aka The Farm)

Maren’s vison of turning their beautiful property on the Edisto River into a camping and events destination is starting to take shape…their 50 plus acres extends all the way to the river ……here’s the Edisto River from the back of their property

The latest significant addition is a bath house…..necessary to accommodate campers and special events visitors

The bathhouse has been in planning since last fall. It is now fully functional although some finish work still needs to be done….the first event is a huge 3 day Yoga Festival for women this coming week end. The weather (rain in the forecast) has become a big concern but I think Maren has decided to go ahead with it…expecting up to 80 women over 3 days…..separate facilities inside for men and women…

Work needed inside to put finishing touches on but we think its great….

A few weeks ago Maren found this beautifully restored 1976 camper in North Carolina….Smokey is now one of the camping options at the gathering grounds……

The inside is so retro and really cozy……..the dining area which can be converted to sleeping for a couple of kids….

Kitchen and sleeping……

Another view…..

We got our motor home out and hooked it up next to the main house for Ronnie and Thea to use during the Yoga Fest.

The main house has now become another rental option ….Maren and Josh now live on James Island and are converting the main house into a lodge available for rent….

The other popular rental spot is the Pond House……This cute little place has comfortable sleeping, toilet and an outdoor bathtub or shower..

These rentals are all on AirBnb and business is starting to take off ….Maren has a very nice web site describing her vision for theĀ Natural Gathering GroundsĀ and the rental options here below…
