While traveling recently, we had a long drive between destinations, so made use of our Harvest Host/Boondocker’s Welcome Membership and stopped for an overnight stay at Hinnant Family Vineyards.
This is a beautiful location conveniently located just off of I-95 in central North Carolina. They have an easy to access parking area for RVs with a beautiful view of the vineyard. The large grassy field was near the road, yet quiet at night. It was easy to maneuver into a parking position and the area was level. They are pet friendly and we enjoyed walking our pups around for a stretch.
They are closely located to shops and restaurants, should you need to get supplies. While there are no hookups, you are able to run a generator there, should you need to. We enjoyed a quiet evening watching the beautiful moonrise and rose early to watch the sunrise over the vineyard. Both were spectacular.
They offer wine tastings, if you arrive early enough. Unfortunately, there was a power outage that closed them early due to an accident the day we stopped, so we didn’t get to participate. But they were gracious and called us in advance to let us know about it and the road closure so we could safely get there around it, and were kind enough to have someone wait there for us to arrive, even though they closed early.
Reservations at the time we booked were done via phone and not the app, so be sure to check closely and communicate. They do need reservations in advance, so you cannot just show up and stay.
This was only our second Harvest Host experience, but a very good one. We hope to visit again when they are open on a future trip.
