As we pulled up the the gate, we were greeted by a very enthusiastic Marley, barking, jumping and tail wagging. Victor met us at the fence just as Mary came walking down from the farther fields.
We were given a tour of the horse trailer bathroom, our campsite, the grazing fields, the second camping area for tents on site with the second horse trailer including a (hand-made by Victor) queen size bed frame, brick charcoal grill, the marshes beyond the last field, and finally, the outhouse. (I clocked the walk from the cabin to the outhouse as a two minute stroll.)
The cabin is truly tiny, but just enough room for myself and my 13 year old son and our essentials.
My son loved the bunk bed, and I opened the couch so it was flat to use as a bed. It’s a bit worn, and the metal between the two sides dug into my back, so I took the cushions off the two benches (located with the table under the bunk bed) and used them as part of my bed. We ate outside at the tables and chairs provided, and kept our supplies on the table inside, so the cushions weren’t missed. We purchased a block of ice (a Tupperware bowl of frozen water which lasted us all 3 days!) but still had to purchase bags of ice at the nearby gas station every day.
We also purchased firewood which we had a hard time burning as it was damp, but there is no shortage of kindling and larger sticks to be found on the property if you don’t mind foraging. There was also a large amount of fallen birch trees, and the bark of the birch, even when wet, can be used as an excellent fire-starter. We also found some small downed trees, which Victor was happy to cut for us; however, my son preferred to do it himself, so Victor lent us several axes. We cooked all of our meals at the campfire at the cabin, using some tools left behind my previous campers and those supplied by Mary and Victor.
We spent most of our time on the grounds, soaking in the quiet (besides the occasional car driving by with loud music, a bit of noise from the neighbor doing some upkeep on his house, and the distant sound of music Victor plays while he works). At night, we were charmed by the sounds of crickets and owls, and the stars glimmered above. Besides the back porch lights of Mary and Victor’s house and the porch lights of the houses to each side of the property through the trees, there was barely any light pollution when we turned off the cabin lights. Make sure to bring several lanterns; I would suggest headlamps as well - something we will bring next time!

Our first night we met Girasol and Cha-Cha, the farm horses. HOW SWEET! The two became a fixture of our stay there and would happily or passively accept patting and occasionally cleaning leaves out of their manes.
The next night my son tried to use a Jiffy-Pop, but it exploded and left corn everywhere to the delight of the rooster, hens and chicks the next day. What a trip it was to be reading by the campfire area surrounded by chickens! Either Mary or Victor were usually there to answer questions, or help out in any way. We had many a great conversation, and could not ask for better hosts!

Mary and Victor couldn’t have been more welcoming, kind, or generous. My girlfriend and I came for a night and had a wonderful time. We spent time with the two horses, their dog, and a scattering of chickens in between our trips to local restaurants, art galleries, and farmers market.

I highly recommend staying at least one night with these lovely people. However, they gave us complete space and privacy unless we asked otherwise, so it’s a win-win regardless of what you’re looking for.

Wayne (my husband), Gretel (our dog), and I had a wonderful and relaxing time. The cabin is comfy and adorably decorated. The grounds are extensive and you can amble amongst the chickens and pet the horses. And you are within 15 minutes of umpteen hiking trails, lakes, and quaint village stores. Most importantly, Mary and Victor are warm and welcoming. We felt completely at home. We can't recommend this place highly enough.

We had such a wonderful weekend at this cabin. The weather was absolutely terrible the whole time (downpours the whole weekend), but we still managed to have fun with the horses, a bonfire, and the kindest hosts. There were fun things to do around the area, too (Gillette Castle, Essex, etc. There would have been even more if the sun made an appearance). I would definitely recommend this cabin.

These gals are the perfect guest to have! Very tough and never even complained about the downpour through out the whole weekend, just said how happy they were. Anyone would love to have these kind of people, no matter the situation they truly make the most of everything!

This quiet, secluded campground is in a far back field of a small horse farm. The tracts are narrow so from the road I had questions about quiet and privacy, but after driving past the pastoral barns, chickens, and horse pen, I saw the fields and woods beyond, which couldn’t have been more idyllic. Mary and Victor were welcoming and gracious hosts, and my kids and I had a great time. Bonuses were riding the horses; the fire going on our arrival; and, though we didn’t end up using it, the converted horse trailer with a double bed inside.
Wonderful stay. Highly recommend!

Mary and Victor's lovely pastures were amazing to stay at! They were both very welcoming and accommodating, and my friend and I had the best time waking up and seeing the horses and chickens and the beautiful fall trees. The campsite itself was in great condition, and we were given kindling and twigs as we arrived in the late evening, which made for an easy set up and first night's fire. Their beautiful dog Marley kept us company, and both Mary and Victor gave us recommendations to see places around town. We really loved this weekend and would repeat it in a heartbeat. Thank you so much!!

We had a wonderful time at Mary and Victor's! The site is very private with plenty of space. Our kids loved the animals and the horseback riding. Would definitely recommend!

Mary and Victor were very kind. We ended up staying in a slightly different area as some of the gates weren't open for passage to the actual site when we arrived. We car camped in our Honda Element, so I can't speak to the trailer scenario, but the outdoor shower was nice and things were fine for us.
