We have 15 acres for you to explore! We created a trail (worn and marked with string and blazes) that runs about 1/2 mile. Our land has a tire swing, ninja line, slack line, and slack swing set for the humans. Please enjoy our makeshift camp, but contact me if interested in the fire pit. Note we have cameras in place for security. Please plan to touch base for parking and how to find the trail head :)

Typical wooded location. Please watch your step and look out for nature! Marked trails but feel free to explore. We have marked the perimeter with purple no hunting spray and no trespassing signs to the best of our ability.

    We had a wonderful time! It is important to me that my dogs are able to spend time off-leash in nature, and this was a wonderful place to do that. We also had fun using the slack line and tire swing! It took us a few minutes to figure out where to park and how to find the trail. But once we were there, we had a lot of fun. We will be back!

    Host replied: Yay! Looking forward to having y’all come back again soon!

    Our visit was spectacular! Everything we could have hoped for. We have been looking for a place in the woods for our dog to run around…we will look no further! We will be back! Thank you for letting us enjoy you beautiful property today. :)

    Host replied: So glad you all had a nice time. We feel so lucky to have this spot and are happy to share!

    Can be tricky finding the Sniffspot, but once you’re there it’s super awesome! Thanks so much!

    Host replied: Glad we were able to connect and that you had fun!

    Awesome area for the pups to run around off leash!

    Host replied: Thank you! Good to see you are already booked for a return visit :)

    This is exactly what we were looking for! My family had a great time hiking and playing on the zip line, swings and slack line. My pup loved splashing in the creek and running at top speed to his heart’s content. He’s a high energy spirit who is finally resting quietly. We’ll be back again and again!

    Host replied: Sounds like everybody had a great time! Just what we hope for :). It’s so fun to share when others enjoy!

    This was a great spot for my pup to frolic. The trails are marked with string which makes them easy to find. I initially had some trouble understanding the entrance, but basically you just park at the very beginning of the gravel road close to the main road, and then walk up. A great spot if you have a pup who lose to run, bu thas a good recall

    Host replied: Thanks for sharing your feedback. Glad to hear you found your way and enjoyed exploring!

    This spot is awesome for anyone who loves walking trails but just can’t enjoy the beautiful mountains and parks of NC with their reactive dog. Lots of fun stuff to sniff and the trail is plenty long enough. We had a great time!

    Host replied: Thanks for the feedback! Hope you will be back soon.

    This is such a wonderful spot! Lots of clean, safe space for dogs to run and play. Our dogs had so much fun splashing around and running in the creek. I’d recommend bringing towels to dry off your pups. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. We would 100% recommend this property and are so grateful that the property owners have chosen to open this beautiful area to sniffspot. Our dogs left extremely happy and exhausted! Anna was quick and easy to communicate with. We did encounter an off leash neighborhood dog on the shared road near the entrance when we parked. It was curious and watched us for awhile, but kept its distance. It ran back home after a few minutes and we did not have any issues. I only mention this because if you have a reactive dog, seeing a lone off leash dog could be stressful. It did not bother our dogs or us at all. We did wait for it to leave before taking our dogs out. This cut into our time a little, but Anna was really wonderful about holding the spot for us so we could get our full hour in. We will definitely be back!

    Host replied: Days like this I wish I could control the universe! Thanks for being patient with the curious guests and for making me aware. So glad you were able to enjoy your time and I do hope you’ll be back soon!

    Repeat visitors!

    We had a great time here! So much so that we extended our hour into two. The pups played an epic game of tag, found lots to smell, and a creek to splash in. Anna was prompt to respond and very helpful.

    Host replied: Oh my goodness-those pictures are amazing! It is way too cold for swimming for me, but truly looks like your babies had a great time!! Hope you’ll be back :)

Hello. We bought this property as a future home site but the pandemic and economy have building on hold. We currently enjoy playing in nature out here instead.
