We’re ready for you!

Like a lot of other businesses, “business as usual” looks a little bit different than it did before we closed for COVID-19. We have put a lot of thought and consideration into making sure our guests and staff remain safe while on-site here at Emberglow. We will continue to monitor and evaluate our processes and procedures in the coming weeks as we learn more.

Amongst other things, we will have an express check-in/out option for guests if they request and will have a 1-day vacancy between lodging reservations. Our bathhouse is open and is being cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis. Click here for a complete list of extra precautions we are taking.

From Our Guests

My wife and I stayed in Harold (the red vintage camper). We had so much fun visiting the vineyards in the area for a long weekend. The camper was a cool change, it was homey and comfortable, but really just loved the idea of getting a glimpse of vacationing from the past. We will definitely be back to check out some of the other campers and take a day hike up to chimney rock.

Andrew N.

Emberglow was a fantastic getaway with only a short drive from Charlotte. We stayed in the large yurt and it did not disappoint. We highly recommend this outdoor resort and will be planning our next trip back very soon. Our two children had lots of fun unplugging for the weekend. There is a fabulous pool, trails to hike, bounce pad, bike riding, outdoor movie night and of course lots of camp fires! Definitely worth checking out and getting away from it all!

Melanie B.

Had a wonderful stay at Emberglow! The staff was friendly and accommodating. Each unit has its own personality and the attention to detail in each place is really astounding. Communities are made around the campfire at this nature meets luxury slice of heaven! Would 100% recommend!

Hannah R.

We had the opportunity to visit Emberglow from Greenville, SC over a weekend and the experience was exactly what we needed. Around 1hr drive from home to a unique outdoor experience. Beautiful property with access to hiking trails from the site. The accommodations were clean and well equipped. We stayed in one of the retro Airstreams and had our own porch and picnic area out back. Even a stream trickling that we could hear from the bed with the windows open. Will be back! Thank you, Emberglow!
