Not really camping... The farm's cabin has been spiffed up for guests with a comfy double bed, a window seat and a small table for writing or just coffee. This one room cabin on short stilts sits slightly uphill from the farmstead. It has screens all down one side, so it has nice air and a great feel of being outdoors. It's a wonderful, quiet perch from which to hear, smell, watch and enjoy farm life. There's no heat (wood stove in only decorative) so you get to experience the lovely brisk spring night air and cuddle up into your sleeping bag. The 'windows' are SCREENS ONLY (no windows/glass) April through Oct. (see photos). They are swapped out for actual windows Nov. -April.
Our private cabin is close to all Berkshire cultural attractions and outdoor activities while nestled in the countryside on a quiet organic farm. It's a great base for exploration, a romantic hideaway, or a quiet writing retreat.
Though you can recharge your laptop or phone, there's no internet connectivity, so your retreat won't be interrupted by squawks, or chirps, except from our rooster, and real, live crickets and tree frogs. The farmhouse is nearby (50 yards), but the cabin is wonderfully private. The cabin's own mini 'lawn' and fire pit (WE HAVE FIREWOOD for sale) are just outside the door. Stroll the farm road, and explore the farm, keeping in mind that it's a working farm. Hike the maintained Nature Conservancy trail right next to the farm, or just chill in your hideaway. This retreat is perfect for solo adventurers and couples.
It's cozy and rustic--it's a farm!--with a wonderful vibe. This is definitely not airb&b. Expect to be awakened by a crowing rooster. If field mice (that sometimes visit the cabin!), a lowing cow in a nearby field, poison ivy, spiders, grass soaked with morning dew, dogs, a hooting owl or coyote's howl cause you consternation, this is decidedly not for you.
Because of covid restrictions, the toilet is now a porta-potty that is less than 100 yards from the cabin. The cabin has no running water. (Natch, water's available at the house.)
Take-out meals are available out at any of the numerous, great south Berkshire eateries: There's a great cafe five minutes away for cappuccino, muffins or a breakfast sannie and a dozen terrific restaurants within 20 minutes. ...or... Bring your own gear (camp stove, pan and dishes) to prep and cook your meal at the fire pit--that's the 'rough' camping part! We can provide some materials if you need: FIREWOOD, charcoal, organic pasture-raised meats, organic veggies, eggs, etc. as seasonally available (separate charges)--Check the "Extras" on this listing, or, if you don't see what you want, shoot us a message about what you need. (You can also check our website.)
See our tent site listing for more awesome details about the farm, trails, and cool stuff in the environs.
We ask that guests respect our privacy in and around the house, and immediate environs--these areas are not for guests' use. On the farm, closed areas (with doors and gates) are off limits: pastures, animal enclosures, stalls, etc. If in doubt, please ask.

This rustic cabin is tucked away between lush greenery with rambling wild grape vines and raspberry bushes just outside the doorway.
Dominic had the cabin nicely prepared for our arrival. The bed was actually quite comfortable. The cabin details such as the seating bench at the table and the small shelf by the door way were thoughtful touches.
Connect with your food supply
Staying with Dom was quite a treat. The cabin was very cute, super rustic. There were lots of barnyard and other animals to visit with and it was a great place to disconnect / unwind. We also learned a bit about farming to boot. I would highly recommend the farm. I would also recommend planning ahead and ordering some eggs/sausage/veggies to pick up while you are there.
Charming and yummy
We had a lovely stay! It was a bit chilly, but the surroundings made it worthwhile. There is not such thing as bad weather, just bad gear:) The food from the farm was delicious and we cooked it on an open fire. Just walking on the dirt roads was beautiful and we came across a trail that took us to a pond. Dominic was super nice and the pigs and chickens were entertaining.
Perfect hiding spot from the world
Loved staying in this sweet little cabin. No WiFi and very little cell service was honestly a major selling point for me! We brought big cozy blankets and sweaters and were plenty warm. Perfect size for 2 adults, 1 toddler, and 1 small dog. The farm itself is so beautiful and peaceful. I would definitely go back anytime and would recommend to anyone.
our stay was absolutely amazing. dom and jonathon were so helpful and so friendly! waking up to the sounds of a farm was pleasant. we spent a lot of our time at the cabin/fire ring. we bought sausage, eggs, and cheese from the farm, and that was our breakfast one morning. YUM. my favorite part? the pig’s fenced in area that backed up to the fire pit area...they are used to people so if they hear you they come up and say hi!! we will be back!!! perfect little 3 night get away for my boyfriend and I!!!
