First effort was The Hideout, carved out of what was an auto shop for parts and repair. Limited light from outside, as the windows open into covered sheds. We did the best with high windows, but it remained dark after all. Very safe. And fun in the Winter with a fire in the old Olive Oak stove. Comfortable armchairs, and bookcases all around. Oriental rugs. Big Spanish library table from my NYC office in the 70's. An 8x10 fully equipped Chef Kitchen. Later a cozy office with fireplace and two banks of batteries for computer power. (CLICK HERE for The Hideout, Chef Kitchen and Office, 23 photos.)
The sunny Guest Room got the best exposure and the finest furniture, flotsam from the destroyed Stone House home at the bottom of the hill. Antique linen press and hunting sideboard, major oriental rug. Large and friendly. A parlor stove with old fashion platform rockers. A door lets out to the view deck with picnic table and charcoal grill, by a 2-acre cool pine grove with hammock and lady slippers in the Spring. (CLICK HERE for the Guest Room.)
Limited water supply at our backcountry camps. There's no city water at Fourpeaks backcountry camps. And no electricity to operate pumps to get water from our wells. Water for washing must be pumped by hand and hauled to where it's to be used just like years ago. In winter, water is especially limited, as pitcher pumps are not operable and stand pumps at the wells may freeze in prolonged cold weather. Living with a limited supply of water is part of the backcountry experience. It's educational and fun to learn how they did it years ago.
NOTE: Camp water is not tested and therefore not potable. Guests at the backcountry camps must supply their own drinking water! Bottled Spring Water available for sale at Camp Barn ($3 per 2-1/2 gallon container.)

Please Rate Our Fourpeaks Website. Whether you're an experienced webmaster or just a novice surfer, you may have feedback or suggestions to help us improve. We well remember the visitor who complained about the unpleasant glare from the HTML default royal blue links. That lead us to entirely revamp our background and link colors, making them softer, more eye pleasing. And the Florida expert who warned us about frustrating visitors with blind links. We followed his advice and now carefully identify links so visitors know before they "click" exactly where they're clicking to. Your comments or suggestions will be equally appreciated.
