Can You Stay at Jonathan Knight's Camp from 'Farmhouse Fixer'?

HGTV fans have felt like members of Jonathan Knight's family, thanks to his new spinoff, Farmhouse Fixer: Camp Revamp. The New Kids on the Block frontman has been renovating a 12-acre, 10-cabin property in New Hampshire, with help from his husband, parents, sisters, and brother (and NKOTB bandmate) Jordan Knight.

Jon took on the project for nostalgic reasons: He has fond memories of spending summers at the lake with his grandparents and wants to create a space for families to have the same experience. The series has been filled with dramatic moments, from unexpected expenses to rodent infestations to falling trees. But the resulting designs have been beautiful and definitely worthy of a visit. Jon had plans of opening the camp for rentals this summer, but his upcoming NKOTB tour and construction delays have made that goal extra challenging.

In the show's third episode, Jon has a serious conversation with his brother Jordan about the camp's future. Jordan says, "You gotta know that you can still make a profit: How much a night for each cabin can you charge? How many days a week do you think they'll be filled?" He points out that Jon will need a general manager, a staff, a logo, and a website before the property can open. It's clear there's still a lot of work to do, aside from renovating the cabins.

Jon admits, "I look like a real dumbass right now. I don't know what I've spent to date... I think I'm in over my head." He says, "I don't even own a computer."

Jon finally comes to terms with the fact that all of the cabins won't be open in time for summer. He says, "Reality is, I'm not going to get 10 cabins done in such a short period of time. Sometimes you can't be an overachiever. Sometimes you have to go at the pace that you're going, and I'm okay with that. I can still open with three cabins, and at least I'll have some money coming in while I work on finishing the rest."

He breaks the news to his family, and says, "That was a very sad moment. Still very disappointed."

Still, fans are wondering when they can join in the summer camp fun with a stay at Waters Edge. On a recent HGTV instagram post about the show, a fan asked, "Will you be renting out these cabins? Do you have a web site?"

Jon's husband, Harley Rodriguez, chimed in the comments section and answered. He said, "will be rentals but not until the rest of the 7 cabins are completed."

The final episode of Farmhouse Fixer: Camp Revamp airs on HGTV on Tuesday, July 9.
