We offer a secluded site nestled among the pine trees that surround our lavender farm. At the birth of this nation, George Washington travelled through this area and declared, "What a pleasant valley!" Our farm, nestled in the Pleasant Valley area of Monmouth County is home to NJ's first lavender farm. The stream at the base of the valley babbles through our farm. When the lavender is in bloom you will smell the sweet scent of this amazing herb. Off-season the fragant pines are the dominant scent. Nearby, you will find hiking trails, county and state parks with fishing and boating and hip towns for antiquing and terrific food. A short drive and you can be on the beach enjoying the surf.

The host were very friendly and provided us with plenty of amenities! The site itself was very well kept and the trail leading to it was adorable. They were also understanding when we got delayed on our travels and couldn't make it in till later.
Definitely would recommend this for someone looking for a simple cozy area but still within the general public!

Ellen and her husband were very hospitable and great communication leading up to the stay. The farm is very nice even though the lavender was not in bloom. It’s about 30 mins to the Jersey shore, which was our main reason for staying there.

The campsite itself was set in the woods in the front of the property near the street so you could hear car noise during the day but it was near silent at night. Ellen provided a table, camping chairs, fire pit, and a toilet. The only downside was that the site was very buggy while we were there so do bring bug spray, and many spiders as well (though harmless!).

Highly recommended.

John and Ellen were lovely hosts. They have a very private and inviting atmosphere at the farm. It's just far enough off the beaten path to have very little road noise and a woodsy feel but close enough to town to be convenient. The occasional waft of lavender was sweet and relaxing. Amenities are sufficient, not quite glamping but comfy enough.

Camp felt private, though we had the site to ourselves. Very cute set up. Very few bugs! Hosts were responsive.

I wish I knew how to add photos! We had so much space. It was really fun.

Took my 5 yr old son for a camp out at the Lavender Farm. We had a great stay. The site was clean and had everything we needed - fire pit, table, chairs, camp potty. John and Ellen were great hosts. We will definitely come back.

It was great meeting Emily and Mark. They are excellent guests! They headed over to Big Brook to search for dinosaur bones. I hope Mark found some cool stuff. Thanks for visiting!

The lavender farm is a beautiful and charming spot! The hosts are INCREDIBLE and set us up with wood, duraflame log, composting toilet, camping table and plenty of tp! My only regret is that we weren’t able to stay for longer!

The tree cover is great, and they provided amenities like chairs and firewood. They also keep the camping space really tidy. Lovely place to hang out.

Beautiful property with lovely and thoughtful hosts! Smells divine. The campsite is tucked away under a blanket of tress and the fireflies were magical. Heads up— there is a mild incline at the site and a bit of road noise. Neither are a big bother, but if you’re a light sleeper, keep it in mind and maybe bring ear plugs. Both could probably be avoided if you head farther into the woods. We didn’t simply because we were anxious to the gear up before an impending thunderstorm. Thanks for a great stay, Ellen!
