IF YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO NOT VACCINATE PLEASE STAY HOME !

Vermont has hit 80%+ vaccination rate is open for  business.  If you are fully vaccinated there are no restrictions.  If not please stick with the Covid protocols. 

.

Late fall or early winter, take your pick.  It is getting cold so be prepared.  We plow the road in but do not sand it.  4wd and good tires a must.  The fall has been very wet and we will need to close at least part of the time to keep the road from getting too torn up.  Total trip from out house is 320yd.

  Curl up in front of the fire and relax.  Marsh Billings farm museum in Woodstock has lots of fall activities.  Christmas is not that far away, Vermont Country store is close and Woodstock has unique shopping. 

We are closing weekdays during the winter as a general rule.  If you want to stay for an extra day let us know and we will unblock.

Spacious one room camp, bunk bed, dinning table, and chairs. Sweeping view to the South. Swimming pond 5 minute walk. LP burner and some cooking utensils. Wood stove for those chilly nights. No electricity but LED battery lighting. l. 

Note that we do not charge a cleaning fee like some sites.  We appreciate our guest leaving the camp as found.  So far so good!

Camp has the following: LP 2 burner cook top, pots and pans, dishes, flat ware, some spices and such.

Fresh clean water will be at the camp when you arrive.  The furnished jugs have been cleaned.  If  you still wish to bring your own drinking water please do so in reusable jugs.  We are trying to limit plastic use.

NOTE:  Using GPS, Google map, or other device our address may come up as Perkinsville, Ascutney, or even Springfield even though the town is Weathersfield.  Check the map and just confirm that Center Grove Rd is shown or called out as off of Weathersfield Center Rd.  

We DO NOT furnish wood for the outside fire pit.  There is plenty of wood to scavenge on site.  There is a small buck saw in the cubby. However if it has rained or raining you may want to bring kindling wood.

We now have slab wood for sale if you do not want to rummage for wood in the forest

PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN KINDLING WOOD FOR THE STOVE. Chunk wood is furnished for the inside stove.  There is a splitting maul, snow shovel, and hatchet

Check in and out times are flexible if no one is booked on either side.

And last but not least if wedding bells are in your future your host is a Justice of the Peace and can perform wedding services!

We had such a wonderful and cozy time here! The fall foliage views were unreal and no pictures could ever do it justice. The hosts were accommodating and very nice! Will be recommending this hipcamp to all our friends.

This is my second time to stay at John's cabin and this time I came alone for a mini retreat. It was delightful and a really special place to spend time. Everything that you need is there, from the view to the lovely cabin to a nearby walk to a jump in the chilly water of the pond.

John's place was simply beautiful for our fall weekend! We had all we needed and our little one was entertained with all the coloring books, games and books in the house. We can't wait to come back again
